There'll be no more bullying Elisabeth Hasselbeck by Rosie O'Donnell -- and the cease-fire is all for the benefit of the Hasselbaby.
So proclaimed Rosie herself in her blog late last night. After yesterday's show, in which she and Hasselbeck traded heated words on their favorite verbal battleground -- the war in Iraq -- Rosie decided to back down, especially with Elisabeth three months pregnant. Or, as she put it, in her free-verse style:
on the view
u have seen my last hasselbeck spat
2 day was it
no more - its done
there is a new life
there - inside
and in the end -
what else matters
Today, unavoidably, the discussion turned to President Bush and Iraq, and Rosie's restraint was evident -- she just changed the topic. We'll see how long the pseudo-haiku-inspiring truce holds.
