After a decade of spewing forth idiocy and half-baked notions on “The View,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving this fall to join the notoriously vacuous show “Fox And Friends.” And judging by Hasselbeck’s track record (including that charming bit of Bin Laden doggerel she composed above), it’ll be a perfect fit. Listen, it’s not like “The View” is the be all and end all of civilized political and social discourse, but Hasselbeck has long been a jarring presence on the ABC daytime show. And not in the good “challenge your liberal views with my well-crafted conservative ones” way.
One of my favorite things Jezebel ever did was put together this video of the 5 Stupidest Things Elisabeth Hasselbeck Has Ever Said. Is it a fair way to judge someone? Absolutely not. It’s well out of context. But Hasselbeck herself has shown very little concern for judging fairly over the years.
The real burning question on my mind, however, is who will “SNL” cast to play Hasselbeck?
