    Re: The View

    Melissa was incredibly rude today. They were trying to get her to talk about the CD she was there to promote and all she wanted to do was complain about the CA voters passing the Proposition to ban gay marriage. Last time I checked, none of the hosts live in CA and therefore had nothing to do with it.

    I don't think she was being rude, I think she was discussing an issue that is very important to her. Civil rights affect all of us to certain extents, whether we live in CA or not.

    She did an awesome version of "Blue Christmas". It made me want to buy her CD and I'm not someone who's big on Christmas music.

    I certainly do not plan on buying her CD.

    As non-CA resident but still seeking out my civil rights I will buy her CD even if I don't like her music because I support people not afraid to talk about real issues. That being said the hosts of the view talk about a lot of topics political and not that are not unique to their geographical locations.

    I'm always trying to stress this to my step-daughter. Her (almost) three year old tells her "no" and I tell her to get a handle on it now because she may not be able to later. I watch him three days a week and he knows better than to tell me "no" or to go too far against what I say. Consequences are swift and certain and feelings get hurt, when necessary. I don't try to be his "friend", but he likes me fine anyway. And he's a sweetheart. At least when I have him.

    They may not have had anything to do with it, but that didn't stop them from discussing it. I didn't find ME rude, certainly no ruder than the hosts themselves often are.

    Loved ME's performance of Blue Christmas today! She did a fine job!! She did a fine job in performing and in articulating her feelings on Prop 8.

    I thought ME was a class act. EH needs to learn to defend her own insinuations.

    yep sofacushion EH just kept skirting the issue. Agreed, ME wasn't booked to discuss Prop8 but as Lil Bit said, it is an issue that is very important to her. I'm not American and same sex marriage is legal and for the most part accepted in Canada.
    I totally agreed with ME that minorities should not be voted on by the majority and IMO marriage - a legally binding contract is a civil rights issue not a religious one.
    I loved ME's rendition of Blue Christmas too she's got so much soul.
