I've never quite understood how anyone in the public eye can come across as being wounded when they become the material for a some comedian's joke. While all president's are a constant target and sometimes are the brunt of rather tasteless comedic material, they manage to let whatever is said roll off their backs. But people like Sarah Palin and Elizabitch Hasselbeck, seem to suffer from moral indignation whenever their name is mentioned. Most people realize nothing is sacred when it comes to the realm of comedy. What one person finds funny the next person might find offensive. Like most things in life, it's a matter of preference. If you think someone is offensive, turn the channel. It's as simple as that.
In the case of Bill Maher's comment about Elizabitch last February, she finally was able came to her own defense 9 months later when Maher made a guest appearance on The View yesterday. Maybe I'm stupid, but I didn't quite get the point of her making what he said an issue. Does she really thinks Maher supports crimes against women? What I think Elizabitch needs to do is either grow some thicker skin or step out of the spotlight altogether. Better yet, perhaps a show like The View, but on some another network (FOX News) featuring her kindred spirits: Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Christine O'Donnell and Liz Cheney would be a better fit for Elizabitch.
