DRUDGE [by way of NYPost] SEZ: Star Jones wants to see pissing contest?

OMIGOD. Surprised? I think NOT.

Star Jones has told viewers that the war on terror is nothing more than a clash of male egos between President Bush and Osama bin Laden, the NEW YORK POST reports. Yesterday, the co-host of ABC's THE VIEW told viewers during a discussion of bin Laden's latest audio tape:"You know what? At some point, one of these men has to put it back in his pants and zip up the zipper." She even suggested that Bush hold some kind of talk with the man behind 9/11. "I won't trust him, but anything that gives me the opportunity to seek peace, I would at least check it out. "People make deals with the devil all the time. We make deals with people we don't like," she said. "You don't negotiate with terrorists," said Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the show's youngest host. "You don't negotiate," Jones interrupted, "but I do think you figure out when there is a solution that's diplomatic that doesn't result in [loss of] human life. "What do we have to lose to check it out?" Star said. "You know what?" she then added, "At some point, one of these men has to put it back in his pants and zip up the zipper at some point." "This isn't somebody whipping it out," shot co-host Meredith Vieira. "You know what, I'm a little tired of posturing back and forth," Jones replied. END

and while we're on the subject of S * T * A * R, this should really post at my sister blog,

----from the Baltimore SUN:

Star Jones Reynolds knows she's got it going on.

It's just that assurance that puts Jones Reynolds in the curious position of being alternately adored and skewered by the media and the public.

One minute she is being lauded for her impeccable professional credentials - from high-powered prosecutor to celebrity co-hostess of ABC's The View; from Payless Shoes spokeswoman to E! Channel red carpet diva. The next minute, reporters and bloggers are spewing nasty things about her marriage, her famous 'tude or her rapid weight loss.

"People do love Star. Some people even idolize her," says Alyssa Shelasky, senior reporter at Us Weekly. "But I think the general consensus is that there's something insincere about her. Look at other women in the media, Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres, they're so real and they're so flawed. People love them. But I think people tend to think there's something too perfect, or phony, about Star."

"Which is just one of many reasons why Jones Reynolds wrote her just-released new book, Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love.

NOTE: Star will be at the Karibu bookstore, 15624 Emerald Way, Bowie today at 2 PM - I am off to meet her -- and to ask her about her gastric bypass!
