Sarah Palin Wants To Join “The View”

  • Sarah Palin has not gone away yet. In fact, Mama Grizzly would like us all to know that she wants to join the cast of “The View” and thinks “it’d be so much fun to shake it up.” Okay, raise your hands if you’d hate-watch just like we would. [The Wire]

“The View” Names Its New Ignorant Blonde Lady Co-Host

Jenny McCarthy photo

While Elisabeth Hasselbeck was annoying, her only crime was blindly regurgitating conservative talking points, a mere misdemeanor in the grand pantheon of crimes commit by television talking heads. So when the time came to choose a new blonde lady, “The View” producers sought out someone whose views are actually responsible for the deaths of children: Jenny McCarthy. Monday morning, Barbara Walters announced that part-time actress and full-time fear-monger Jenny McCarthy would be joining the show as a co-host. Read more on Celebuzz…

Michelle Obama kept it classy on “The View” this morning, as always. The First Lady gamely fielded questions about the president tucking her into bed at night and whether she would ever consider running for office. (Answer: hell no!) She also discussed the continued prevalence of racism in this country. But I was most interested in hearing her discuss how the Obamas raise their daughters and make sure Malia and Sasha are happy, even with all the craziness swirling around them. “The thing I always want my girls to know is their life is good either way,” she said. “They understand their world is secure no matter what. They’ve grown to understand home is wherever we are. … Dad is always going to be Dad.” Well said. [Mediaite]

President Obama appeared on “The View” today, and damn, the talk was serious as if he appeared on “Meet The Press.” But there were very serious matters to discuss: last week’s announcement that the president believes lesbians and gays should be allowed to marry, the economy, and of course whether or not Mitt Romney is “a rich man who is out of touch” with average Americans. All the president will say about that last point is that Romney’s financial success should be celebrated, but as a politician he has “a different vision on how to move the country forward.”

After the serious talk, the ladies quizzed the president on his pop culture knowledge, including (gulp!) 50 Shades Of Grey. Hear his response, after the jump:

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law student who was called a “slut” and a “prostitute” by Rush Limbaugh last week, appeared on “The View” this morning. She utterly floored me with her articulation, composure and professionalism.  

Three weeks ago, Fluke was barred from testifying to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committe about women’s access to affordable birth control. Instead an all-male panel trashed President Obama’s compromise on health care reform that if religiously-affiliated employers won’t pay for contraception for their employees, insurers must pick up the cost themselves. Sandra Fluke was later given an opportunity to testify to a group of Democrats, although it was not official, in which she explained how female students at Georgetown are struggling to pay the cost of birth control. Rush Limbaugh then attacked her on air, calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” and demanded she post videos of herself having sex online. Keep reading »

Anyone watching “The View” this morning was not so lucky: Whoopi Goldberg began discussing her love for porn and then criticized the changing appearances of the actresses’ pudendas. Really, that’s the word she used — pudendas Keep reading »

  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck from “The View” and Bill Maher from “Real Time” are both supreme annoying human beings. So, naturally, watching them fight makes us cringe — but we can’t look away! At one point Elisabeth says, “Wow, I actually feel smarter sitting next to you,” and Bill replies, “Really? I feel like I’m in high school when I’m sitting next to you.” Really? Really. [Dlisted]
