Bob Dole Vs. The Osbournes
The first volley in the war came from Bob Dole during last Sunday’s 60 Minutes broadcast when he asked Bill Clinton, “Does Hollywood still think Ozzy Osbourne is funny now that he's shipped his underage son [Jack] off to drug rehab? America is awash in reality TV. And the reality is it's debasing and degrading."
Clinton denied having ever watched the show and didn’t directly respond instead he went into an attack on the Republican budget.
Today Kelly Osbourne fired back at Bob Dole in a statement she gave to MTV news. "It's ridiculous that they should frame [Jack] as a national issue," Kelly Osbourne said. "You don't go to rehab just because you're someone's kid, and it was Jack who had the balls to check himself in."
MTV reports that she ended her statement with a message for the Senator, "P.S. You're a twat."
That last comment is sure to give Dole more ammunition if he plans to respond and further illustrate why he feels that the Osbournes is “debasing and degrading”.
