    Twisted sense of humor.

    But, I guess she gets Jewish immunity.

    Desperate plea for attention.

    Yet another example of playing "the Hitler card" when you've got nothing else.

    What's more offensive? The Roseanne pictorial or the title of the magazine?

    Heeb is a pretty funny mag.

    I guess the oven makes it hilarious, right?

    Am I the only one not really offended by this, really, in any way. It's a comedy mag. She's Jewish. Doesn't really register on the offend-o-meter for me.

    You see, it's funny because Hitler killed 6 million Jews ... and ... umm ... actually, that's why it isn't funny.

    Being outraged is playing into her hands. It's like a little kid who screams for attention.

    Rosanne Barr was good at first, but then she went too far.

    But you have to say that she made her show's production schedule run on time.

    Ya, I'm about as unoffendable as a person can be, and while this doesn't necessarily offend me personally, not being Jewish and all, it's in unbelievably poor taste. It deserves a little more than a "It was a joke" response.
