Okay, I will admit that I recorded some episodes of the View because of some guests they had that I wanted to see and sometimes I like the dialogue between the gals. I especially like Whoopi and Joy. I like Sherri and Barbara. I used to watch it all the time when Rosie was on.
However, watching it again just reconfirm what I always thought about Elisabeth Hasselbeck. She is truly an idiot. While I have criticisms of how the current administration may be handling some things, President Obama is still light years better than the previous administration. I like the idea of opposing viewpoints on the View, however, I think that Hasselbeck is perhaps the worst representation of the conservative voice, unless that voice is the village idiot.
Her attacks are so politically positioned and weak on the Obama administration and they lack such substance. Joy and Sherri can counterpoint her without any effort. Her treatment of Kathy Griffin on the View was deplorable and unprofessional.
Kathy is a comedian and her shtick is to make fun of celebrities including all the women on the View. She is like Andrew Dice Clay Meets Don Rickles. Sherri even commented on how she heard jokes made about her but reacted in a very professional way to Griffin.
Elisabeth was yawning and stretching like a middle school brat. Griffin would not let her get away with it. Kudos to you Kathy!
Maybe the View keeps Hasselbeck because it is fun to watch a dumb blonde make an idiot of herself every day. Hey if she brings in the ratings, why not? If she helps remind us of the failed policies of the previous administration, maybe keeping her on is a good idea.
