I love watching Elisabeth Hasselbeck get worked up. Hearing this simple, stupid woman’s already-high-pitched voice rise higher as she gets dumber fills me with glee. Forget about the piano playing cat. This is YouTube’s real star. The site’s manifold highlight clips of her getting flustered as she attempts to defend her stupid, stupid opinions are the only way to enjoy the otherwise unwatchable View.
Here’s my favorite Hasselbeck view moment: it’s Elisabeth crying because she’s not allowed to say nigger while black people are. It starts with a discussion of that hypocritical scumbag Jesse Jackson’s use of the n[igger]-word that turns into a discussion about the double standard of the word’s accepted use among blacks but not among whites, as if T.I. saying “Punk you niggas, Dominique slam dunk you niggas, sucka punch down one of you niggas, I was being nice at first, now I’m runnin’ through niggas” and Michael Richards saying “Nigger!” are equivalent. I mean, Michael doesn’t even rhyme it with anything.
The crying starts around 5:25. It’s so great; you can see Elisabeth’s simple little brain getting all confused because even she isn’t sure what the hell she’s trying to argue at that point.
