HASSELBECK VS MAHER

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.

  1. So, she stews for months, in the hope that she will, someday, get to ambush the evil Maher and tear him a new one? What a petty little woman. I thought Maher handled it quite well (and with humor). You could tell that the other women were a bit uncomfortable with Elizabitch's indignant tirade as well. Hey, Liz: "If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen." Maybe it's time Hasselbeck moved away from the stove and found a new hobby.

  2. Look at the expression on her adorable mug. It reminds me of mental constipation.

  3. she was trying so hard to maintain composure, but you could tell she wanted to rip Maher's nuts off. it about killed her to paste that constipated smile on her narrow-minded face.

    i so wanted Barbara or Joy to slap her.

  4. I got a kick out of watching Whoopie. I think she was speechless. Can you believe that?

  5. Mildred, did you know that this video is unavailable to those of us who live in Germany? YouTube seems to think there are no avenues to view news items like this outside of the US of A. Not necessarily censorship, just greed prevents the viewing of these supposed 'license protected' properties. But We Have Ways.... Bwah-ha-ha....
