Video: Plucky Internet laughingstock lands on her feet

posted at 3:38 pm on October 30, 2007 by Allahpundit

Yes, it’s her, getting a boost from Babwa while Hasselbeck’s out on maternity leave. Try as you might, you can’t not root for her. Especially when she reaches for the easy applause line at the end of the clip and, alas, no applause is forthcoming.

Behar sneaks in a mindless dig at Bush, too, as per what can only be some sort of contractual obligation. Exit question one: When does you-know-who get her star turn? Exit question two: “That’s like flying the Space Shuttle without a driver’s permit.” Huh?

I thought we were talking about “you-know-who” in the first place.

What was that Bush comment for? Is she on a quota system?

Me too.

Oh, she’s a Paula White head. No wonder.

Brat on October 30, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Okay since this is a “womans’” show are we allowed to make dumb blonde jokes now? Of course I ain’t quite sure which dumb blonde to start with.

LakeRuins on October 30, 2007 at 3:48 PM

What an inspirational story. I mean, wow – just… WOW. The hardships and adversity that poor, poor woman has had to overcome. “As bad as Bush”, it doesn’t get worse than that.

She was on that precipice, and now she’s there, on the View. Bravo Merry, bravo.

I’m outraged, outraged!, that the View audience didn’t give her a standing ovation.

I’m going to write a letter to my daughter’s high school to see if we can get her to deliver the commencement speech.

Remind me who this person is again.

That, or pure, unbridled talent.

She has to know somebody. Somebody has to be pushing her.

You often don’t get a first chance, let alone a second, in the entertainment industry.

MikeZero on October 30, 2007 at 4:00 PM

Arent they really saying that Hasselbeck is so dumb she’s replacable by this person?

lorien1973 on October 30, 2007 at 4:04 PM

All you have to do is read the teleprompter.

Am I missing something?

Zach on October 30, 2007 at 4:04 PM

“Welcome to da View, y’all”.

Whatthehey?????

You think that’s talent? Then try this.

What is the deal with Whoopi’s breathing?

MOCKERY.

I refuse to watch any View clips until November 12

It’s not who you know….

Uh, Ms. Miller? Some friendly advice: “Stay behind the camera.”

It brings to mind that old line: “He has a face that’s made for radio.” Only in this case, “She’s got a brain that’s made for waitressing.”

(No offense to the hospitality industry.)

Splashman on October 30, 2007 at 4:28 PM

Criminy, the View is scraping the bottom of the barrel. If the View is representative of women in America, we are screwed.

TheSitRep on October 30, 2007 at 4:33 PM

Can’t this air-head stand in front of a thundering herd of football players?

OhEssYouCowboys on October 30, 2007 at 4:42 PM

If the View is representative of women in America, we are screwed.

Don’t worry, they’re not. They are, however, representative of liberal women in America, which means the Libs are no more than one generation away from self-destructing. Ditto for Europe.

You go, girls! Don’t marry — just sleep around. More abortions, definitely! Adopt one kid, for image! Put it in daycare, then school, then college (assuming, of course, that you can’t get it a job in the entertainment industry). Don’t actually spend time with your kid, because there are more important things to do, like audition for ditzy-office-slut-cum-productive-member-of-society. Avoid indoctrinating your kid with your own ideals, because that’s what schools are for, dontcha know! Put some money away for a good therapist and a good retirement home. There, a job well done!

Splashman on October 30, 2007 at 4:55 PM

She’s still doing the “we couldn’t hear each other” routine?

And Behar’s……..”Boooosh!” (cackle,cackle..)…..what an idiot!

nottakingsides on October 30, 2007 at 5:11 PM

I feel like I lose a bit more gray matter everytime
I watch these “View” clips and I DON’T have that
much to spare.

Texyank on October 30, 2007 at 5:28 PM

What was that Bush comment for? Is she on a quota system?

stonemeister on October 30, 2007 at 3:43 PM

Exactly! Not once did George W. Bush come to mind when I watched that clip, but Joy thinks of nothing else, apparently.

Is she capable of anything other than clapper lines?

Kensington on October 30, 2007 at 5:39 PM

I can’t wait for November 12th.

Whoopi Goldberg saying that something else someone did on live TV is “painful to watch??” You gotta be friggin’ kiddin’ me… (I’d say “Hello, pot – this is kettle,” etc. but I don’t want the punchline to be misconstrued.)

Now then,

Oh, she’s a Paula White head. No wonder.

Brat on October 30, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Paula reaches different believers in different ways, but I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, and a high five to Merry (nice spelling) Miller for getting that mention of learning something from a sermon and church into her defense among the unholy coven that is “The View” on live national television.
