Video: Ziegler does The View

posted at 5:59 pm on February 2, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

What do you get when you mix John Ziegler with The View? About what you’d expect. It’s worth a look for sheer entertainment value, as people might have taken bets on when Joy Behar’s head would explode. Funniest moment: Barbara Walters insisting that Captain Uh would have been equally criticized for fumbling an interview:

Whoopi Goldberg has a pretty good point when she says that Sarah Palin may be making a mistake in complaining about her coverage. However, Hillary Clinton did complain about the sexism directed at her, despite what Goldberg claims, and so did her surrogates.  If she hadn’t, I doubt she’d be Secretary of State; Obama had little choice but to ask Hillary to join after the campaign left bruises on both.

And the Behar head explosion?  Seven minutes.  That was about six past my opening bet.

Liberals are the most uninformed group of people I have ever met, they never never have a valid point or argument, they just resort to shouting you down.

Ed, the low amount of comments on this post may be an indicator that HA readers have reached “tilt” when it comes to clips from The View.

At this point, Joy Behar’s head explosion would only be exciting if it, well, actually exploded…

Ed, “Whoopi Goldberg has a pretty good point when she says that Sarah Palin may be making a mistake in complaining about her coverage?”

That was a ignorant statement.

I guess the thing that bewilders me the most, is why does anybody watch this insignificant crap. Joy Behar is a complete harpy fool, that was not successful as a stand-up comic and is worse as a one sided sit-down talk show participant. Sherry what’s her name – duh- what in the hell prospective does this women bring to the table. I doubt that 10 people even knew of her existance prior to this gig. Whoppy – I’ll cut her some slack, in that she does once in a while bring fairness to the debate, even though we all know she’s a total lib/leftist. Elizabeth is sooo out numbered that I give her credit for even showing up. Babwa Wawa – now this has-been retread, who is a legend in her own mind and is about 10 years beyond her “best used by” date, should fade gracefully away, while she still commands a small bit of respect.

The prescription for getting rid of this program is simple. First, Elizabeth, tell Joy to kiss your a** and take a walk, stage left. You’ve got enough appeal to get another gig, elsewhere. Now, in order for this to work, there cannot be any other conservative willing to take her place. Secondly, any and all conservatives need to refuse to become a guest on the program.

Without anyone to argue the other side of the question and no guest with conservative view points to bring to the show, it will soon become nothing more than a tv. Air America, with a total leftist cacklefest. Give it 4 months, at best, and it will be on it’s way to oblivion. The ratings will tank, viewer interest will quickly abate because there will be no one to pick on, like they do to Elizabeth. Lastly, the sponsors will start to peel away and Babwa will panic because she’s losing production $ and her viability will come into question, causing her to close up shop.
Then we can all sit back and hear the moanings of the fools who really get off on this garbage show. After that, we can think of ways to pull the same thing on Oprah and her all knowing, all telling minstrel show.

What a biased show this abortion called “The View” is.

I love how they have four bigmouth liberals vs the one conservative Hasselback.

Babawawa is pathetic, you can tell she’s annoyed that this guy is calling the liberal media what it actually is.

And you think Zeigler isn’t biased and that his doc isn’t biased in favor of Palin?

That movie is so full of ass kissing and brown nosing toward Palin – one could puke.
