Please be warned that an epidemic case of schadenfreude has broken out among Christians across America due to the dismal failure of Rosie O’ Donnell’s variety show Wednesday night.
Thousands of Christians were seen walking around smiling and then breaking into loud guffaws of laughter after the ratings were announced today, signaling the probable end of Rosie O’Donnell’s career.
Only 5 million viewers tuned in for the 8 p.m. premiere of “Rosie Live.” That’s bad. Bad enough to be the lowest rated show of the night. And critics killed the show. Heh,heh.
Hey! Stop smiling. Now, as good as it feels to see an anti-Catholic bigot self-combust on national television you really shouldn’t allow yourself to be feeling good about Rosie’s career failure. hee-hee…hee…So don’t think about her anti-Catholic and anti-Christian comments like these (H/T Media Research Center):
-Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.” (The View, 9/12/06)
-“You know what concerns me? How many Supreme Court justices are Catholics? … Five. How about separation of church and state in America?” (The View, 4/19/07)
-“If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” (The View, 4/19/07)
-“Christopher Reeve died without hope because of the religious – separation – lack of separation of church and state by this administration.” (The View, 6/7/05)
-“I really hope the Catholic Church gets sued until the end of time. Maybe, you know, we can melt down some of the gold toilets in the Pope’s Vatican and pay off some of the lawsuits because, you know, frankly, the whole tenet of Christianity, of being pious, of living a Christ-like life, has been lost in Catholicism.” (MSNBC’s Donahue, 2/24/03)
I would continue but heh…heh…I’m having a…heheheheheh…hard time stopping an insane…hahahahahahaha…bout of laughter…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!.

Give her a dozen or so donuts and she’ll be just fine.

Good to see the schadenfreude hasn’t affected you, subvet.

I am surprised she got 5mil. When one fights truth and God… what is to be expected?

Who’s Rosie O’Donnell?
(Couldn’t keep a straight face writing that, darn.)

No doubt the ratings failure was a Vatican plot involving Templars and the Grail and floating monks and, like, y’know, stuff.

sometimes God leads us into the (ratings) desert in order to bring us back to Him.
St. Rose of Lima, prayer for her and us.

I vaguely recal she was gonna have some variety show. Can’t even say when it was on. But I’m assuming it was last night? I couldn’t be bothered since it would have squarely conflicted with my Simpsons-American Dad night on Fox.
Matthew, I applaud your deep sense of self-analysis and introspection on this matter. And while the Germans are certainly good at identifying and naming all that is creepy and uncomfortable (emotionally or otherwise), I don’t think the term schadenfreude is completely accurate in this case, given our sentiments to the female oompaloompa in question. More like schadenfrau or schadenfreak. Yes, the latter is definitely more appropriate.
