Barbara Walters, host of Emmy winning gab-fest "The View" has announced that Monday she will name the next panelist to join her and table-mates Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg. It's rumored to be actress Sherri Sheperd.
She is obviously thrilled.
"Viewmaster" Bill Geddie is
dating Congressman Larry Craig thrilled.
Whoopi, Elisabeth and Joy are
pretending to be thrilled.
Former panelists Debi Metanopolous, Lisa Ling, Meredith Viera, Star Jones-Reynolds and Rosie O'Donnell are
still pissed as hell thrilled.
The sad truth of the matter is that I cannot get excited about another disappointment. It's just not in me. With the exception of Meredith Viera and Lisa Ling her choices have either been vapid ill-informed entertainers or ultra-liberal egos on a stick.
The token conservative on the show, Hasselbeck, went to the George W. Bush School of Point Making...it's a little known school for people who have their heart in the right place but apparently don't care to engage their brain. What would happen if Barbara picked a conservative who's IQ is bigger than her bra size? Is there a liberal agenda that might get diluted? Gasp!!!!!! At least when Rosie was on the show I spent less time yelling at Elisabeth.
So, as a public service I humbly offer my list of people that I would love to see on The View:
- Elizabeth Dole - She's Fabulous and Intelligent what's not to love.
- Ann Coulter - Controversial? yes. More Controversial than Rosie?
- Me. I'm not that smart but I've been told that I can crack a joke or two. Let me know Babs. I'm currently unemployed and was recently confused for a person on food stamps.
