  1. well, its nice to know that they have covered all (well, most all), of the bases, as far as, levels of intelligence go...they go from one end of the spectrum to the other...from the sublime to the ridiculous.

  2. This had to have been staged otherwise I am afraid I'll have to find this woman and slap her!
    If this is actually true it once again proves my point, (constant raving) that anyone can have a child! You can be held liable for a multitude of reasons in this country, drug/abuse, cruelty to animals, child abuse, etc. but no matter what you do they still allow you to have a child.
    Its not a right but a privilege and regardless of what some people thing not everyone should breed. It infuriates me to no end!

  3. This is got to be on purpose as a way to seek some sort of publicity. As far as I'm aware we don't live in the times of Pythagoras anymore.

  4. I love how many right wingnuts get trapped in corners by their own idiotic beliefs. You have to throw out rational science to hold firm to that "no evolution" belief and then when other, more basic science questions/theories are thrown at you, the dumber among those sheople are stuck rejecting science.

    Kind of like the anti-abortion folks who are pro death penalty - is a life a life and worth protecting or not? You can't have it both ways.

  5. She obviously thought Whoopi was going to corner her into an she went on a denial binge. What an idiot...sounds like she attended George W. University!!

  6. Um… I’m guessing you, Charles, were making fun of Dubya, but George Washington University (GWU) is actaully a very prestigious school. :)

    Any rate, I still don’t understand why we expect celebrities to be fountains of wisdom.

  7. Did she say "shut up" at the end?!! Boy, with Whoopi's dismayed stares, the slight pause after her question, Joy's attempt at self-restraint, the audience's chuckle, and Barbara's comment that "you can do both", this was too freakin' funny. LMAO!

  8. And of course she's thought about it. She just didn't want to have to go into a deep explanation and potentially reveal some personal beliefs she apparently isn't too proud of. Ironic.

  9. Girlfriend, you better be kidding!!

  10. Oh look- a longer version. Slick recovery, I'll say.

  11. That was amazing. It really seemed as if she didn't know if the world was flat or not. If her child asked her if the world was flat, she would have to go to a library and look it up? Did she really not know that? How can someone get through life and be that thunderously unaware?

  12. Those that don't believe in evolution simply haven't evolved. It's not their fault their stupid. It's DNA baby.

  13. With tits that big, how can she believe anything is flat?

  14. Sherry Shepard is a professional comedian and actor. She is not this stupid. This whole conversation looks like a setup. Why would the producers of this show (Barbara Walters) want to make their new host look so stupid?

  15. Ahh, someone dumber than Hasselcrack! Good tv.

  16. Suppose you believe the earth might be flat. Suppose you're an idiot. But I repeat myself.

  17. Who gives a sh*t what anyone on the View thinks? I think the View can be entertaining but rarely enlightening. Now Entertainment Tonight - that's enlightening. Mary Hart was around when evolution started so she knows. Um hmm!

  18. So because Sherri is a "professional comedian and actor" she can't be stupid?? Exactly which college/university did she graduate from? What Masters program did she complete? I think her "keepin' it real" thing is thin as her intellectual capacity.

    Religion, particular the fundamental stripe provides easy cover for lack of education and insight. If you are asked if the world is flat or round and you answer that you don't should be sent up in the space shuttle on a one-way ticket to see for yourself.

  19. Bobby: Speaking of stupid, "It's not their fault their stupid" should actually read "It's not their fault they're stupid."

  21. This is a perfect example of what eating too many Twinkies in school as a child can do to you, make you go on national television and speak such nonsense, that its not easy to even insult her.

    And, she has a child? Why are straight folks allowed to have kids when they don't have the sense of a turnip?

  22. The notion that in the past people really thought the world was flat is somewhat disingenuous as any sailor could have told you otherwise. It was never a ubiquitous sentiment. There are places on the globe that are actually flat. Ironically or appropriately, one of the largest flat spots is in Iowa.

  23. Just when you thought there wasn't anything stupid any American could possibly utter that would surprise us in the rest of the world. I am truly speechless.
