Shepherd Blocks Etheridge and Hasselbeck Prop 8 Wrestling Match

Hasselbeck also managed to whine her way into the White House Christmas party: “After complaining on ‘The View’ Tuesday morning that she did not receive her annual invitation to the White House Christmas Party — ‘Maybe I didn’t do enough for the Republican party this year?’ she speculated — Elisabeth received an apology and an invitation from the White House.”

    EH is irrelevant and unwatchable.
    May we one day read that her hubby is caught in a restroom sting—it would be just desserts for the clueless, ignorant, intolerant sorry excuse for a woman.

  2. sparks says

    Melissa debates the issue exactly as it should be debated, by emphasizing that this is about families and about children, as much it is about the technical formality of allowing two people who love each other to make the same legally protected declaration of commitment as heterosexual couples.

  3. Tom S. says

    That still is what you see during most of the debates on The View: Sherri and the guest/all the other hosts smiling and joking while Elizabeth is sternly focused on getting her point out.

  4. Jimmyboyo says

    Common sense would have whoopie or walters interview Ethridge. If your goal is confrontation, ignorance, and a fight about a serious issue then send in the gawdddd squad. The producers of the view know exactly what they are doing. promoting ignorant fights for ratings. They will never get rid of hassel-hack (not even a reality show star but a bit character who married into fame) she plays her part too well.

  5. Ryan says

    It irks me that Elisabeth kept saying, “For me it’s not a personal issue, for me it’s just a legal issue.” To a lot of people this IS a personal issue. I don’t know what’s so hard to understand about that.

    The only reason she’s against gay marriage is the same reason she’s against abortion — someone, somewhere told her a long time ago that the Bible said it was wrong, and she’s so wrapped up in her blind faith that she’s never stopped to ask why. Sherri and Elisabeth are both just sheep.

  6. says

    Hasselbeck serves a purpose on that show. She’s sincere, pretty, and visibly CLUELESS. Having Ethridge be interviewed by an open-minded, intellectual would be like watching Sarah Palin be ‘skewered’ with the deep probing questions of Shaun Hannity.

    Makes for really boring TV. The View isn’t hot for nothing.

  7. CJ says

    Hasselback FAILS on so many levels it isn’t even worth debating. I believe Kristen Wiig did a fantastic portrayal of Hasselback on SNL. She’s ignorant, stubborn and unable to intellectually debate any topic unless it’s a topic she agrees with and understands.

  8. Christian says

    Hasselback is so ignorant! She can’t make her point across a conversation on that show. And when she speaks is always when someone else is talking, just to interrupt that person and not do it clearly (because she’s ignorant).

    And Shepard is another ignorant loser, who didn’t know who to vote back in November until a day before. And who’s against gay marriages too because it’s against her religion as the loyal “Christian” she is

  9. Bobby says

    You know what’s worse for me than Elizabeth’s bullshit and Sherri’s ignorance is Whoopi Goldberg (who I love) sitting there letting them get away with it.

    People can say what they want about Rosie O’Donnell, but she would NEVER allow such bullshit to go unchallenged.

    Joy Behar is just trying to keep her job and is useless in my opinion on the subject. She’s too willing to give in.

    But Whoopi just disappoints me for not using her brain and wit against those sheeple.

  10. peterparker says

    Elizabeth Hasselbeck is a fucking idiot. Melissa did a great job, but I wish she’d told Sherri Shepard to can it because a discussion about marriage was more important than a discussion of her new CD.

  11. paul says

    why in the hell did they have these two bitches interview her? I would have ripped Elizabeth a new one!! what a stupid fugly bitch!!

    Yeah…maybe we shouldn’t be quoting Jefferson….

    “If the measures which have been pursued are approved by the majority, it is the duty of the minority to acquiesce and conform.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1811. ME 13:51

    “We are sensible of the duty and expediency of submitting our opinions to the will of the majority, and can wait with patience till they get right if they happen to be at any time wrong.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Breckenridge, 1800.

    “[Bear] always in mind that a nation ceases to be republican only when the will of the majority ceases to be the law.” –Thomas Jefferson: Reply to the Citizens of Adams County, Pa., 1808. ME 12:18

    “This… [is] a country where the will of the majority is the law, and ought to be the law.” –Thomas Jefferson: Answers to de Meusnier Questions, 1786. ME 17:85

    “The will of the people… is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.” –Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Waring, 1801. ME 10:236

    “The measures of the fair majority… ought always to be respected.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1792. ME 8:397

  13. GregV says

    Mitch, when you select only part of a sentence and leave out the rest which provides context, you can make it sound like something very different.
    I’m not going to pick apart each quote, but I randomly looked up one to see what you had removed. The entire sentence looks like this:

    “All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.”

    Where you put in a period, there was only a comma with the main crux of his point following that comma.
