Oh, She'll Be Back.

Did you doubt it?

Rosie O'Donnell is walking away from "The View" the undisputed winner of what has been a nightmare situation for ABC. Rosie already has had offers from NBC and CBS for daytime shows to counter "The View," sources say.

Not only that, Rosie can pretty much write her own ticket, whether it's a no-holds-barred show on HBO or a syndicated program similar to her previous hit talk show.

What's clear, though, is that O'Donnell is leaving a leaking, if not sinking, ship at "The View."

Squeaky moonbat gets the, umm, moonbat food (?), I guess. It is a damn shame what acting a fool will get you these days. Make occasionally clever anal sex jokes for a couple years, become the Washington Editor of Time.com. Have sex with men on the Hill for money, get story broken by girl who makes anal sex jokes for money, get a book deal. Pose for a bunch of seedy amateur, semi-nude photos on Facebook, become the most famous loser of American Idol. Start a pee-pee fight with Donald Trump and spout conspiracy theories, get a bigger daytime TV deal than the world has ever known.

I'm free-market and all, but all of this really does serve to send a funky message to the up-and-coming.
