Hypocrite of the Week: Airhead Faux-Conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck

By Debbie Schlussel

As I’ve noted on this site before, “View” hag and faux-conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck is possibly the most vacant personality on television.  And definitely the most annoying.  That’s sad because she supposed to be a conservative.  Emphasis on the word “supposed.”  And that’s exactly why Baba Wawa and ABC picked her for their insipid daytime ode to dumb chatter.


Airhead “View” Hag Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Out Federal Air Marshals, Not Lesbians

Hasselbeck praised Barack Obama Supreme Court choice Sonia Sotomayor, agreed with Obama that police officer James Crowley “acted stupidly” and was “racist” for arresting Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr. at his Cambridge, Massachusetts home, and praised both Al Sharpton and Snoop Dogg.  Yup, that’s your “conservative.”

Now, though, this airhead has not only displayed her vapidity, but also her hypocrisy. She had no problem outing the identity of a Federal Air Marshal, but she’s upset that a celebrity was outed as gay.  Priorities, Shmiorities.  Hypocrisy, Shmypocrisy.

Last week, left-wing, uber-gay blogger Perez Hilton (real name:  Mario Lavandeira) was on the daytime hag-fest, and came under attack from Hasselbeck for “outing” actress Meredith Baxter as a lesbian (even though she’d been openly out as a lesbian on gay cruises, etc.).

I have no love for Perez Hilton/Lavandeira.  But talk about hypocrisy and idiocy in the priorities department.  Hasselbeck, earlier this year, vacantly outed a Federal Air Marshal on national TV, giving out his full name, where he sat on the plane, the cover story that he tells to passengers, and even what flight he was on and at what time it arrived in Los Angeles from New York.  The transgression was so bad that the Federal Air Marshal Service had to contact ABC to get that segment of the show removed for the next time they aired it, in re-runs.  Talk about an airhead.  Stupid chick.  Vacant, vacant, vacant.

Hmmm . . . outing the identity and methods used by a Federal Air Marshal to the world versus letting us know that a rather butch has-been actress is a lesbian–which of these is the bigger outrage?  Which harms Americans and our well-being and national security more.

Can’t blame an airhead for getting her priorities straight.  And for being a hypocrite.  Right?

No… seeing as her thinking and reasoning skills are close to zero. I don’t think she can articulate a conservative argument if her life depended on it. But that’s why they love Hasselbeck on “The View.” She makes it easy to dismiss conservatives as people one should even debate.

I try very hard not to watch Hasselbeck at anytime, when she has appeared on a television show I happened to be watching, I’ve actually left the room.

I have always found her to be disgustingly stupid.

Rocky on December 8, 2009 at 3:40 pm

She is about as much of a conservative as Andrew Sullivan. Also, she has the candlepower of a damp match.

Worry01 on December 8, 2009 at 3:49 pm

What, I thought Hasselbeck is the smartest lady I’ve ever seen of TV…

Brian on December 8, 2009 at 3:55 pm

The women of The View couldn’t handle someone like Ann Coulter or Michelle Maulkin, but the program would then be very watchable.

DS: Michelle Fraudkin was a complete disaster and failure when she was a guest on the show and couldn’t hold her own in the least. Malkin promotes anti-Semitic articles and helps people and organizations who praised Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on me and my family. She’s a complete phony and wouldn’t be a plus for conservatives there. She only does well in settings like FOX News, where she gets paid to have dumb people fawn over her every lifted word. DS

Many conservative women tend to go overboard in racial proclivity because of the terror of being branded as “racist” by liberals. Case in point, Cinnamon Stillwell, conservative columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle.

DS_ROCKS! on December 8, 2009 at 4:35 pm

If Hasselbeck ever gets kicked off or leaves that show, she doesn’t have to worry about getting another job. She would fit right in with the other blonde bimbos at Fox. But I must say, Fox does have the best looking bimbos out of all the news channels.

Jarhead on December 8, 2009 at 6:28 pm

Denise, that neocon Filipino couldn’t even handle Alex Jones!!!! Used to like her, but not any more!

Bob Porrazzo on December 8, 2009 at 6:55 pm

One reason I have gone independent. Many in the GOP will go along with people like Hasselbeck because of her beauty. Similar to Palin and Arnold Schwarzenegger,style over substance. When put on the spot to hold to their convictions. They cant articulate their message and then hurt the cause they are supposed to represent. This has gone on so much that liberals have a field day on their ineptness. Oh well the beat goes on.

Hasselbeck’s bubble-headed glasses are so fitting for this airhead.

CaliforniaScreaming on December 8, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Hasselbeck’s problem, in addition to having the appearanace of a rodent and a strange voice, is that she has average intelligence at best. The poor vacant one isn’t even effective in expressing her shallow ideas. She’s inarticulate, stupid and looks like Mighty Mouse.

lexi on December 8, 2009 at 8:13 pm

You mean “the view” is still on??? I guess my business is REALLY cutting into my time watching the inept on TV. Thank you, GOD!

PatsPFS on December 8, 2009 at 8:16 pm

Tiger would’ve liked to hit that. 🙂

Ralph on December 8, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Is that your infantile comment of the day?

    Worry01 on December 8, 2009 at 9:07 pm

Hasselbeck certainly is no prize, but a lot of other so-called conservatives are taking liberal positions these days; a number of websites with collections of ‘conservative’ columnists always seem to have a few these days that are pro-Obama to one degree or another. She’s a symptom — an irksome symptom to be sure — but a symptom of a broader problem.

Little Al on December 8, 2009 at 9:06 pm

Does anybody on this website CARE who Meredith Baxter sleeps with?

Miranda Rose Smith on December 9, 2009 at 3:14 am

Almost Vice President Sarah Palin can’t speak or answer questions coherently but she’s a conservative anti-hero, but we bemoan the stupidity of a daytime women’s talk panelist?

“But talk about hypocrisy and idiocy in the priorities department.”

Exquisito on December 9, 2009 at 3:43 am

    (footnote) vapid or not, Hasselbeck is a sreaming hot piece of a$$

    Exquisito on December 9, 2009 at 3:48 am

Dear Exquisito: Have you read ANY of Ms. Schlussel’s postings on Sarah Palin?

Miranda Rose Smith on December 9, 2009 at 7:22 am

I would love to see a TV-Show like the View with Youself, Sara Palin, Elizabeth Dole and Hasselbeck.

Patrick Mullen on December 9, 2009 at 7:45 am

“Almost Vice President Sarah Palin can’t speak or answer questions coherently but she’s a conservative anti-hero, but we bemoan the stupidity of a daytime women’s talk panelist?”

But sarah is currently polling only one percentage point under President Obama ? How’d you splain that, Exey ?? So there !!

RoadsScholar on December 9, 2009 at 7:49 am

AND even worse!

Her husband was a terrible NFL quarterback too. Also just sat on a bench and contributed little.

Bob S. on December 9, 2009 at 8:54 am

Outing under cover Federal Air Marshalls ought to be illegal.

Just like outing undercover CIA operatives ought to be…….

Sean on December 9, 2009 at 8:55 am

Hold on, Michelle Malkin is an anti-Semite who wants to help Muslim terrorists kill Debbie’s family?

The same Michelle Malkin who wrote a book PRAISING FDR’s internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII as a way of suggesting that we should intern Muslim-Americans in the light of 9/11? THAT Michelle Malkin?

Jeesh…when Malkin isn’t conservative enough for the room, what kind of room are we talking about????

JC: Michelle Malkin is a complete phony and a fraud. She promoted an openly anti-Semitic article on her site, repeatedly attacked former employees of AIPAC as spies (all charges against them were dropped), and helped a woman and her organization who praised Muslim rape, death, and torture threats on me and my family. Yes, THAT Michelle Fraudkin. She’s a complete fake. I’ll be writing a separate column on this in the near future. If that’s conservative for you, you belong on the Stormfront and Buchanan sites, not here. DS

If the Republican can do a lot better than that idiot Palin.

madman on December 9, 2009 at 10:31 am

Watching The View without Elizabeth Hasselbeck would be like watching Private Ryan without any Germans.

The Terrorist's Advocate on December 9, 2009 at 10:35 am

    The Terrorist’s Advocate wrote “Watching The View without Elizabeth Hasselbeck would be like watching Private Ryan without any Germans.”

    With of without Hasselbeck on the View, I’d rather watch Private Ryan without Germans, blood, guts, tanks or guns than watch this stupid show.

    Jarhead on December 9, 2009 at 11:21 am

She reminds me of the prety airheads who dated the jocks in high school and college. They were too stupid to realize that all the jocks saw was a place to park their manly Humvees for the night.

The Terrorist's Advocate on December 10, 2009 at 10:18 am


I’m looking forward to your upcoming piece on Malkin. I just posted a thread on my blog titled “It’s Time To Call Out Michelle Malkin As A Fraud And Just Another Mouthpiece For The RINOfied GOP”. A bit long, but you get the point. I had no idea she was anti-Semitic…Guess I should have added that to the title. I heard a rumor that she’s part of a secret Conservative kabal headed up by none other than the elderly Ed Meese. Is that true? As always, you’re the best, Debbie!

levotb on February 14, 2010 at 3:30 am

Look at the liberal women vs the conservative women. Just on looks, the conservatives win. It is no wonder that attractive women want to be labeled conservative. Who would want to be in the company of WHoopie, BABA, or Rosy. In addition, it would be hard to stay on the show as a true conservative as the liberal pablum that comes out of these liberal women is sickening. They should have a nice drink of Kool-aid with Jim Jones
