Rosie O'Donnell get new sponsor - ACE Hardware
Rosie O'Donnell has a new sponsor for her TV show: Ace Hardware. (Apparently, word of the K-Mart fiasco didn't reach this particular company's corporate offices). Ace already has an advertising "partnership" with "Rosie" magazine, but will now be a sponsor of the show. (Dykie women and home improvement products - what could be a better match?)Here's a brief refresher of some of Rosie's more notable pronouncements on guns:"Of course I'm against them, because they do more harm than good." - speaking with Cokie Roberts about conceal carry laws on ABC's "This Week" the day before the Million Mom March "I also think you should not buy a gun anywhere." - same ABC's "This Week" "The only life that is important to them is white, Republican life." - speaking about the NRA , National Review, June 17, 2000 "And it never, ever was interpreted that the Second Amendment meant individual's right to bear arms" - speaking with Katie Couric on NBC's "Today" June 2000 "What we who work for gun control would like to see happen is every gun licensed and registered in the United States. - same "Today"show "There have been times when I have had armed people at my house" - same "Today"show "I don't care if you want to hunt, I don't care if you think it's your right. I say, sorry, you are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison." - The Rosie O'Donnell Show April 19, 1999 "I know it's in the Constitution. But you know what? Enough! I would like to say, I think there should be a law--and I know this is extreme--that no one can have a gun in the U.S. If you have a gun, you go to jail. Only the police should have guns. It's ridiculous." - During interview with Carolyn McCarthy as quoted in the Ottawa Sun, April 29, 1999. Anyway, here's the link if you'd like to let Ace know what you think of this arrangement.: http://www.AceHardware.com/root/contact_form.asp You might also mention your concerns to the manager of your local Ace store the next (and hopefully, last) time you shop there.
