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.

      Elisabeth Hasselbeck seems like she can never be objective. She seems to always side step questions or comments about Sarah Palin. At least the rest of the woman can critique and at times criticize the candidates they support. It is so revealing on the youth, inexperience and immaturity of Hasslebeck. She is so become a characture of herself and a malfunctioning tool of the McCain campaign.

      I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but when I watched it I shouted at the TV, “Shut up, bitch, she asked you first.” Thank god I was alone.

      Oh, Alexa, I don’t think you were alone. I think a lot of people did exactly the same thing.

      If ABC/The View/Barbara Walters wants the viewers who switch over from Fox News to watch Hasselback, ABC/The View/Barbara Walters will have to put up with her.

      I don’t watch the View because Hasselback is on there. She’s ignorant and sort of a joke.

      Hey Alexa, Don’t feel embarrassed as I just stood up and shouted into my computer at CastleRock, “shut up you fucking moron, what does Barbara Walter’s sexual past have to do with the subject at hand?” Even if he could have heard me I am sure he’s about as big an idiot Hassleback and incapable of giving an intelligent response.

      ARRRGGGGHHHH! That stupid woman is driving me mad! Today she proved beyond a reason of a doubt that she does NOT belong on television! I have becomed dissolusioned with Barbara Walters the last couple of years, but today she regained at least some level of respect from me. All she did was ask EH WHY she thinks Sarah Palin would make a good Vice President and EH did just as she always does….she turned the question into a question and challenge of her own, ie WHY is Barack Obama qualified? The audience went nuts over that, the boos were so audible. You could see that Hasselbeck was trying to buy some time until Bill Geddes could feed her the talking points through her earpiece. This woman is the most hateful person on TV. PLEASE FOX NEWS, hire this treasure before it’s too late! Some other reputable news show might just snatch her up!

      Is it prerequisite to be a cunt before you can become a high profile
      Republican woman? I mean, look at the women who are right wing talking heads. Anne “the cunt” Coulter. They all have this really mean streak in them. Can you imagine any of them mothering a child? I mean this one might spawn the anti-christ eventually. I will say that Bush’s wife is probably the most pleasant Republican woman out there. But then I am not convinced that she really is a Republican at heart.

      Would somebody please put Hasselbeck out of her misery. I’ve never witnessed anybody so fearful, and hate filled. It’s insane to go through life with so much fear and hate and inane unintelligible one track blinkers on thought patterns. She spews rubbish, and doesn’t have a mind of her own. Give us all a big break and remove her from not only the View, but from Television all together. Go home Elisabeth Hasselbeck and protect your children from terrorists. I’m sure in Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s world, they are hiding under the front porch waiting to attack at any moment.

      Actually Marcus I’m not sure she isn’t/wasn’t. I watched a special about how the bushes met on A&E I believe there was some mention in there about that.

      Also from what I’ve seen Elisabeth Dole would qualify as decidedly uncuntish

      If Condi Rice weren’t a lesbian, Elizabeth Hasselbeck wouldn’t have to defend Sarah Pallin’s lack of qualifications. Penn Gillette said it best, “Republican’s aren’t really stupid, they are just wrong.”
