The verdict on the Christine O'Donnell interview: Piers Morgan is "not guilty"

Gloria Allred was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Friday, and discussed whether Piers Morgan was a "sexist pig" during the Christine O'Donnell interview. "You are not guilty of sexual harassment," said Allred. "This is nonsense. And I really resent, and I'm angry, when anyone claims sexual harassment when they were not truly a victim of it."

Also on the panel were Rachel Sklar and James Poniewozik – who described "this controversy that apparently everyone is talking about. Piers Morgan: he's dangerous, he's cheeky, who's going to walk out next?"

      I don't think he cares very much about offending his guests. His show is floundering and making guests walk off is free pubicity. Right now, he'll do anything to keep viewers.

    I agree that Piers did nothing wrong per say, but he did make Christine O'Donnell feel uncomfortable and this is something a talk show host idealy avoids. There are all kinds of different ways to bring up subjects without making guests feel uncomfotable and defensive, and Piers needs to anticipate these and adjust.

    This is my view of O'Donnell and her Tea Party friends.

    If This is Tea, Please Bring Me Some Coffee (A. Lincoln)

    As a youngster when invited to a tea party by a friend
    I was quick to accept and one of the first to attend.
    There would be lots of the goodies we all loved to eat,
    fancy pastries and scones and every kind of choice treat.

    Now grown-ups are being asked another kind of tea party to join
    but it is one that has the sound of a distinctly false coin.
    The Republican politicians behind its promotion
    are keeping mum about their beverage being a poisonous potion.

    They say to get rid of government is their main ambition
    and they will do whatever it takes to accomplish their mission.
    It’s a pity no-one has told them theirs is not a new creed
    but one which, when touted as anarchy, did not succeed.

    Those chosen to serve up their venomous brew
    can best be described as an off-the-wall crew.
    Sarah Palin in the forefront is the party’s mad hatter
    mesmerizing the crowds with her asinine chatter.

    Sharron Angle of Nevada says in some counties in Texas Sharia law is applied
    while Latinos from Asia are crossing the Canadian border in a flood tide.
    Carl Paladino of New York who hates everyone who is gay
    why he belongs to the Republican Party he refuses to say.

    But of all the tea party stalwarts the weirdest is O’Donnell, Christine,
    who hopes to be crowned as the Delaware queen.
    When she opens her mouth to give us her views
    out of it every kind of dimwittedness spews.

    She is not a witch she insists and will not cast a spell
    and it is not easy to grasp just what she is trying to sell.
    If she keeps on about it in babble that resembles double Dutch
    her listeners might think that the lady doth indeed protest too much.

    Mice with brains that are human have been produced she declared
    although to ask where she learnt that no-one has dared.
    While on her opponents she may spill all her spleen
    why to innocent mice does she have to be mean?

    That every rodent has a brain we are all well aware
    to accuse Christine of which no one would dare.
    Having solved the mouse problem she thought it worth while
    to do some research for her own monkey trial.

    Reliable sources inform that when in the zoo
    she embarrassed the primates by watching them screw.
    When their offspring was not a babe to be wheeled in a pram
    it was proof, if any were needed, that claims of evolution are all just a scam.

    Still unknown, after she finished studying every ape,
    is just why the zoo keepers let her escape.
    But escape she did to tell us that if elected she will take back the nation
    by outlawing every form of masturbation.

    It is estimated, in the latest projections,
    that nearly 4 billion dollars will be spent on U.S. mid-term elections.
    For electors the choice will not be one that is painless
    when they must choose among candidates who are totally brainless.

    Piers, helping to revive Christine O'Connell is a disservice to the American people. We need serious people who are willing to work with others, cooperate, negotiate, and compromise. We don't need people who want their 15 minutes.

    CNN has Anderson Cooper, and it used to have Larry King. Two true journalists. The latter one has retired ans was replaced by Piers Morgan, who is a disgusting, full of himself, arrogant ignorant. Christine O'Donnel came to the interview with the intention to talk about the issues vital for the today America. At the very moment ZERO of the interview she should have wiped that offensive stupid smirk on Piers face (or whatever it is) with a good slap. That would do nicely.
