Babs Tests Hasselbeck, Hasselbeck Fails

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the moron who gives Republicans everywhere a bad name, had a minor meltdown during the show’s first segment today.

She was so beyond help that not even Barbara Walters came to her rescue. The topic, of course, was the idiocy of Sarah Palin, which turned into another session of Elisabeth spouting off nonsensical remarks to defend her beloved McCain/Palin ticket.

After Barbara correctly likened Palin’s preparation for the debate to a high school student cramming for an exam, Elisabeth became extremely angry, which is when this happened (inciting a round of boos from the audience):

BW: We love you on the program. You are the counterpoint. But every single day you never ever say, ‘Maybe there’s another point.’ So here’s your chance. … Tell us now why you think that Sarah Palin would make a very good president.

EH: Well, since I’ve been studying for this pop quiz forever, I – tell me why Barack Obama is qualified. I mean, give me three tangible things he has done.
