As I’ve long told you, airhead/ignoramus Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s daytime hag-fest, “The View,” is hardly a conservative. Whether it’s her praise of Snoop Dogg, transsexuals, gay marriage and gays in the military, Al Sharpton, affirmative action, Title IX, Obama’s choice of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, her claim that John McCain was the most conservative 2008 candidate for the Republican nomination for President, or her outing of a Federal Air Marshal live on the air, or any number of other ridiculous statements, the woman is clueless . . . until she gets her FOX News talking points. And even then, she still doesn’t get it.
Two Mouths, But Only the Open One Needs Shutting
Today’s episode of the uber-annoying show took the cake. While liberal Joy Behar defended Ann Coulter’s right to speak and decried officials’ decision to cancel a Coulter speech at a the University of Ottawa, Hasselbeck praised the move. First, she said, “They did the right thing,” and muttered some of her typical stupidity about the safety of the students. Then she went on and on about her multiple orgasms for Canada.
I’m so in love with Canada [DS: reminds me of Angelina Jolie, saying, “I’m so in love with my brother right now] . . . . And they’ve done so much for this country, like what they did for us on 9/11.
Huh? How ’bout how they booed U.S. hockey teams at the start of the Iraq war? How ’bout how the whole country is socialist and a good deal of it is on welfare? And lucky us–we’ve now copied their abysmal health care system. Because a few Canadians were volunteer workers on 9/11, somehow this translates into justification for silencing speech they don’t like?
Even Sherri Shepherd–who has said in the past that she’s not convinced the earth isn’t flat–came to Coulter’s defense and said she should be allowed to speak. But not Hasseldumb.
If only they had a real conservative with an actual brain on that show. With the completely vacant Hasselbeck there, it’s better to have no-one at all. It’s incredible when Joy Behar is the voice of reason on that show.
