Joy and Elisabeth Duke It Out Over Sarah Palin




Today it was almost as if The View took a step back in time. Controversial film maker John Siegler had Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck duking it out over the November presidential election and Sarah Palin, while Whoopi, Barbara and Sherri tried to get a word in edge wise. Siegler dropped by The View to promote his new documentary Media Malpractice. For those who have missed the pre election sparring, the second clip you'll particularly enjoy.

Know "Joy" she bashed Palin for no reason! Joy and the other pple who bashed Palin was just afraid she would acually do a good job as a president.

First off, Palin was running as vice president, not president. I'm no fan of Elisabeth, but Joy has got to be fired, she's a raging bitch. She never shuts her fat mouth up. I'm sorry, my loathing for her is way hi.

It's also very interesting that before the election Joy couldn't stand it when people used the "patriotic" card, but that is exactly what she used in one of the clips.

I love how Siegler says that the media was "in the tank" for Obama. Well, anyone with good sense was for the man, especially after the eight years we have just endured -- and we will evidently feel the affects of the Bush administration for years to come.

The reason that the McCain/Palin ticket was defeated was that they spouted the same ol' crap Bush has been spouting for years and people didn't want to hear that noise -- and for good reason.

Republicans haven't the first thing about how to help this country; they only know how to help their cronies and themselves.

I'm no fan of Joy's, but I know how she feels: she's just frustrated that these so-called conservatives won't admit the truth even when they're hit over the head with it: Bush was the worst president ever -- and the Republican Party is nothing but a bunch of self-righteous, morally deficient nitwits.

Obama won. Get over it and the truly patriotic thing: support our president!

My personal theory? Ken Corday is a Republican.

Nuff said...

What I find odd (he says sarcastically) is that Palin in the interview continues blaming campaign staff for her screwing up her own interview with Couric. After all, the reason the Couric interviews -- every single one of them -- went badly was not because of Katie Couric OR Palin's handlers. The reason all of her interviews with Couric and the majority of the other televised interviews that she had were so disastrous was because of the words that came out of Palin's own mouth.

As for The View today, was Joy disrespectful? Yes. Why? Because it's the-shoe-is-on-the-other-foot-syndrome on both sides of the political spectrum. For 8 years, conservatives gloated over being in power and played the anti-patriotism card against anyone who disagreed with them and liberals waxed about inclusion and being left out of the process. Now the situation is reversed politically, with one notable exception: the former President now back in Crawford could have cared less about inclusion because in his words, "you are either with us or against us." On the other hand, the current President from Illinois is reaching out to Republicans and conservatives on a variety of issues, even though he doesn't have to on many issues in order to push through his agenda. I'm far more comfortable with the latter, than the former. That Palin would whine about having been mistreated is a big boo-hoo to me. If she wanted to have been treated differently, she should have had better answers to a lot of easy questions.

In regard to Joy, as Whitney Houston once said, it's not right, but it's ok.

The reason the media went after Palin's pregnant daughter is because the Right Wing, Conservative Stance against teen pregnancy ALWAYS looks down on liberal women and minorities when they get knocked up out of wedlock!!! It shows her blatant hypocrisy and her inability to even foster her one-sided beliefs in her own household, let alone, her misguided efforts to keep sex ed out of schools throughout Alaska. A prophet needs to be able to lead their OWN house, before they tell me about mine! And YOU GO BABS! Forget Joy and Elisabeth, they are both two yapping pups in this clip, but Babs defended the game and pointed out that Palin set herself up for failure because of how doggone stupid she came off! Did you hear this:

Sarah: It was told me that we were going to do another segment.

I'm sorry, but we had eight years of a world leader who couldn't freaking talk, I do not want my vice-president to sound like an idiot and I know plenty of Republicans who feel the same way. What happened to the days of the Republicans being the elitest? The well-heeled, the well-spoken. Do we really want her going to England and telling Tony Blair, "It was told me we needed to do a sit down?" I don't.

 You are right, Revafan: the only reason why the President on the United States of America won the election is because "Color people voted for him" -- black, Latino, white, Native American, Pacific Asian Islander, lavender, magenta, fuschia, navy blue, ultraviolet, tangerine.....

The only reason why "that man won" is becuase most of the Color people voted for him. Also Demicats are what got us in this "Economy Mess", first the deconcats gave moragtes to anyone..
***
That is a ridiculous lie. Blacks make up 10 percent of this country, PLENTY of white folks  and others voted for him too. And I will not stand here and let this accomplished, IVY  LEAGUE educated individual's accomplishments be MINIMIZED by his race. Jesse Jackson was black too, America didn't vote him in. The only reason BUSH won was his last name...

THANK YOU! ALL the white folks at my office voted for Barack, hell they were on his team when I was still repping for Hillary! What more did Bush have to do for this country for people to realize it was a DISMAL mistake to ever put him in office? We're in a zillion dollar war (based on faulty intel), and facing a billion dollar receession, all because he came from a presidential oil dynasty. Bush went home a hero in Texas. He did exactly what the big oil folks in Houston sent him  to do. Bankrupt the country, while Exxon and the like bled us all dry. Go look at the Forbes list! No oil company is hurting. Dick Cheney's former company Haliburton got all the contracts to rebuild Iraq, after Bush went over there and tore it up. Thank GOD it's all behind us now. America has spoken, deal with it! Barack won, without a crocked brother in Florida to fix the elections.

That was a reaction to eight years of being told you were unpatriotic if you DARED to speak out about Bush. Well, what's good for the Democrat is good for the Republican. If it was unpatriotic to speak out about Bush, then it's unpatriotic to speak out about Obama, ESPECIALLY since he has yet to, you know, plunge us into a war based on a lie.

COLOR people? Are u serious?! People still using that term? As Stephanie Tanner would say on Full House, "HOW RUDE!" I wish people would stop saying that Pres. Obama got in because of that. Obviously people of ALL COLOR got tired of the old regime and decided something was better and he was it. Jamey, Al Sharpton ran also and COLOR people didn't vote for his ass either so that entire theory is such a crock of you know what. Joy was right on the money! She had also said something before that Sherri had to contend with and Whoopi as well, if this were a MINORITY teen pregnant, the right wing would be all over that family like flies to doo-doo. Sarah can't have it both ways, you can't trot your child out one min to make yourself look good and then cry foul. Katie Couric asked her one simple question, "What newspaper do you read," and she (Palin) tried to make it look lik e Couric was trying to say people in Alaska don't read newspapers. She got played and she needs to own up to her mess. STILL bugging out over the COLOR remark.

There are more Black people in this country than there is whites and other races.

Shock :O

And who is he sending our money over to other countrys so other woman can kill thier fetus??
***
Oh...right, conservatives say abortion is wrong because it's murder right, and the bible says though shalt not kill...so...why again did a Republican president start a war??? What would Jesus say about that??? What about the death penalty? It's wrong to kill a fetus that has no feelings or emotions, but it's perfectly okay to bomb a tenament in Iraq because they "heard" a terrorist was there and then apologize about all the innocent women and children who were in that tenament, who most definitely could feel pain???

Jamey, you are right on. The right wing needs to realize that they lost and need to redefine themselves and get their acts together. I think people are sick of the Republicans act like "holier than thou" when they are just as flawed and human just like everyone else. I sick of them acting like they know everything and don't know s#$t. I do believe that you can't preach one thing and do another. I feel that the Republican can realize that just because you two parents in the home and have morals doesn't mean they not going to make big mistakes. I feel they look down on single mothers and now her daughter is a single mother. I feel that any one can make a mistake, but it takes a bigger person to admitted it and have empathy for others.

There u go! Ann had to back up when Whoopi was about to lay into her. How worse can it get now? God the man ain't in office a month and you just have people being silly by not giving him a chance... Then again some of them still say COLORED!

Some of you need to just stick to soaps, and stay OUT of politics. We all know why Obama got elected. He got elected because he was new start, he was young, inspiring, eloquent, yada, yada, yada. I like the man, and hope he does well, but the liberal media and the color of the skin helped him get elected. And Democrats and Republicans are EQUALLY to blame for the economy. We can thank Bill Clinton for allowing everyone in America to get a loan approval, and the banking industry. We can thank George Bush for not doing anything about it. (Even though he and othe Repubs. warned about this all going down) Now, are we all happy?

As for Joy- She is the loudest, big mouth liberal I have EVER encountered. She should be banned from T.V. She will say anything just to have something to bitch about. At least Whoopi and the rest of them have a little of intelligence to spout. Elisabeth is not always right, but I give her credit for putting up with those onesided liberal bitches everyday of her life. Anyone else ready for her and her pregnancy hormones to go raging? (:

Republicans suck in every way: they sucked the marrow out of the bones of this country and sucked the life out of their own party. Republicans are the reason this country is in the crapper. And if Revafan001 is the typical (presumably white) Republican voter, then excuse me while I hit my knees and thank God that Obama won!

And, btw, when did bring liberal become a bad thing? I'd much rather be liberal than a hate-mongering conservative douchebag who has permanently crawled up Rush Limbaugh's ample drug-addled ass.

And so what if the media's liberal? They get to see people like Bush close up and know what an uncaring jackass of a president he was. Are there actually people who are proud that they voted for Bush/Cheney TWICE? Then take your share of the credit for the sewer this country has become over the past eight years.

Seems to me people throw around terms like liberal when someone doesn't agree with them. I've thought lately that I would never vote for another Republican for as long as I live, and Revafan001 has convinced me to stick to that vow!

If it where the color of his skin that got him elected than what the heck got the other 43 men that came before him elected? Is the media biased? YES! But the same liberals that are on television now were there 4 years ago when Bush got reelected. If minimizing PRESIDENT OBAMA's victory is what it takes to make you feel better than go ahead. But what I will always remember most about November 4, 2008 is not that just the first black president was elected but that I saw people of all colors and ages and beliefs crying and joined together.

All these party-liners need the shut it up. The mess we're in now is a bi-partisan mess. Its not only because of Democrats or Republicans.

Bush didn't have filibuster-proof numbers in the Senate when he was president and he needed Democrats to approve his plans in the House.

Blame the ex-president all you want for other crap like response to Katrina and Iraq blunders, but the economy is all Congress, both Republican and Democrats. Because they hold the purse strings.

Just like the first half of the bailout that disappeared with no real regulations was a bi-partisan blunder.

When it passed, both Obama and McCain was proud to have it approved. And now that Obama's president, he's upset about how it was handled. Maybe he should have thought about that while he was still a senator. Because back then, he refused to go to Washington *before* it was passed and work to make a better bill. Why? Because he was campaigning.

So don't give me this mess about how bad the republicans or the democrats are. They all are full of crap and need to get their act together.

And I like Palin. I may not agree with her about everything, but she's genuine. Just because you don't agree with her doesn't make her stupid. Look at her record. She's a alright politician... if you can use the word "politician" and "alright" in the same word.

And lots of non-blacks worked on his campaign.

These silly episodes whereby anyone with a book deal can discredit Obama's steps to get into the White House are laughable and nothing compared to our troubles with the economy today.

Instead of writing books on how to make things better, they rather put their pens to creating dissension and placing blame. Conversations on "Who did it first" mean little when people are losing their homes and out of jobs.

Who's going to fix those problems? Certainly not John Siegler, Joy, or EH; and something tells me they couldn't even if they tried. And let's not get started with Sarah Palin, she couldn't get one complete sentence out of her mouth the entire election.

NO one is entitled to anything in this world, not even 15 minutes a fame. Sarah Pain should count herself lucky.

No one said it didn't help. Sure it helped, just like the skin color of the past 40 odd ones helped THEM too...
