Open thread: Michelle on “The View”

posted at 10:15 am on August 3, 2009 by Allahpundit

11 a.m. ET on ABC. Odds that this’ll end up as anything other than a complete clusterfark: 80-1. Over/under on how long the boss will be allowed to speak before being interrupted: Four seconds. Likelihood that I’ll deal with the mounting anxiety by getting buzzed before airtime: 95 percent.

Dude, I’m nervous. What if Whoopi comes armed with a study proving that fire really can’t melt steel?

Wish I could watch!

Akzed on August 3, 2009 at 10:16 AM

I still don’t know if I can watch. I will have to follow you all on here and catch the highlights later. I like MM, but I just CANNOT stomach those others (EH the exception of course).

XWing5 on August 3, 2009 at 10:17 AM

too bad it can’t be held in a wrestling ring!!!

right4life on August 3, 2009 at 10:17 AM

All these hags ever do talk over one another, lie, and have their lap dogs in the audience clap at anything they say.
Michelle needs to go out there with both guns blazing.

jencab on August 3, 2009 at 10:18 AM

Allah I think we need a play by play…perhaps via a twitter embed or something. Too bad I can’t watch.

therightscoop on August 3, 2009 at 10:19 AM

Love Michelle, but wouldn’t watch that show if you paid me.

Wait – how much would you pay me?

Midas on August 3, 2009 at 10:20 AM

This is must see TV. Hope Michelle is wearing her bullet proof vest…

neoavatara on August 3, 2009 at 10:20 AM

I’m at home today, so I could watch it, but is it just going to make me angry if I do? Probably. Bless Michelle’s heart for going on that show, though I’m afraid it’s like preaching abstinence in a whorehouse.

pugwriter on August 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM

I’ll be at the vet with the cat, but I’ll check when I get back to see how it went.

Go, Michelle!

Bob's Kid on August 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM

Allah I think we need a play by play…perhaps via a twitter embed or something. Too bad I can’t watch.

therightscoop on August 3, 2009 at 10:19 AM

I totally agree. Allah, you must embed your twitter feed or that other feed you and Ed used during the election. For the sake of the HA community, it must be done.

Lance Murdock on August 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM

SECOND LOOK AT LIVE BLOGGING!

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM

$5 on Michelle being called racist. $10 on being a race-traitor. Liberals can’t stand it when minorities don’t drink the Kool-Aid and toe the party line.

Rightwingguy on August 3, 2009 at 10:22 AM

I have my dvr set…will watch tonight!

ladyingray on August 3, 2009 at 10:23 AM

Allah, chill dude. I’m their are plenty of facts already out there from Michelles earlier appearances. The dimwits won’t have nearly the power they would have had if she had hit “The View” first..
Just breathe man(and pound, it’s okay :) )

JusDreamin on August 3, 2009 at 10:23 AM

“… and Armageddon sick of it!”

mojo on August 3, 2009 at 10:23 AM

Michelle should just plan on smiling and being beautiful because she won’t be allowed to speak. Just hold the book up and repeat “buy the book” as a mantra.

Mojave Mark on August 3, 2009 at 10:23 AM

Love MM; but nothing could get me to watch Biased Bi%ches “The View of Elitist Chicks.” Oops, me The Shrews View

Branch Rickey on August 3, 2009 at 10:24 AM

Whoopi will probably make a reference to slavery, Joyless will call Michelle a “bitch” , and Sherri will still think the earth is flat. Elisabeth will remain quiet to let another conservative get the fire. Barbara will still be in la la land.
Good times.
Get ‘em Michelle!!

jencab on August 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

I’d rather have my eyes eaten out by ants than watch that show.

mojo on August 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Dude, I’m nervous. What if Whoopi comes armed with a study proving that fire really can’t melt steel?

Yeah and pointing out that the steel didn’t melt (merely softened) and soft steel holding up x many thousands of tons tends to buckle….well, that would be a waste of time. By the way, what’s the burning temp for JP5? Really, really hot? Enough to say….cause a building to collapse because of a compromised structure? You don’t say?

Rightwingguy on August 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Tivo’d it. Can’t wait.

We need the Humpbot Allah, it’s been too long.

John_Locke on August 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Michelle in the Colosseum. Tickets on sale now: 1-800-Got-Lions.

Limerick on August 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

I have nothing better to do, I might just watch this. Guess I have to figure out what channel the show comes on first (hate my in-laws’ satellite tv).

Anna on August 3, 2009 at 10:26 AM

As a rule I avoid the viewing the View….but I will tune in today, will you all be putting up the video after the fact?

Dr Evil on August 3, 2009 at 10:26 AM

Guess I’ll just have to catch the vid online later. :-(

I was hoping to be able to watch the beatdown MM is going to give these, ahem, “ladies”.

Abby Adams on August 3, 2009 at 10:26 AM

The one thing I would love is for Michelle to kick Whoopi and especially Joyless’ asses.
I can’t stand these two.

jencab on August 3, 2009 at 10:26 AM

The way those hags run that operation is so irritating and frustrating, watching it with someone I respect on there…I can’t stomach it.

My mother said of people who are rude…”do not dignify them with a response.”

Michelle is brave to go on there.

keebs on August 3, 2009 at 10:27 AM

AP, for those who can’t wach it, would you post the whole vid. later today?

katy on August 3, 2009 at 10:27 AM

Beat down?

Michelle won’t be able to speak over the yelling and screaming. There will be a few soundmen today receiving hearing damage.

Limerick on August 3, 2009 at 10:27 AM

EVEN for Michelle I can’t watch that group of harridans. They are an embarrassment to their gender – providing support for the smear that women are vicious witches.

katiejane on August 3, 2009 at 10:27 AM

DVR set.

Behar will probably grow fangs, growl, drool and try to eat Michelle’s brains. Michelle will have to leap onto the table and blast her Resident Evil-style!

What could go wrong?

Mr_Magoo on August 3, 2009 at 10:28 AM

Four women enter Thunderdome…

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

God Bless DVR’s……

how about a play by play……the Master versus STUPIDITY squared…….they won’t let her say a word…watch!

SDarchitect on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Four Five women enter Thunderdome…

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Can’t stand the sight of Joy Behar and that ugly sneer of hers. Dimwitted bitch… Will catch highlights here, thanks.

surrounded on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

I’m going to prepare myself for obamacare and extract my own tooth with some rusty pliers and then work on that colonoscapy with the garden hose and mini DV camera, so I’ve got more pressing things to do than watch DNC funded TV

gatorboy on August 3, 2009 at 10:30 AM

100 bucks to Michelles favorite charity is Joy Behar has an embolism.

Chuck Schick on August 3, 2009 at 10:30 AM

One thing is certain…she will be outweighed.

right2bright on August 3, 2009 at 10:30 AM

Michelle’s too damn smart for them. Like when Ann Couletr was on–they’ll get catty and take her opinions personally and get defensive cuz they won’t be able to debate her on substance. Couldn’t watch either. They make my ears bleed with the sound of their collective stupidity.

RepubChica on August 3, 2009 at 10:30 AM

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Which one is your money on?

ladyingray on August 3, 2009 at 10:31 AM

Another way to look at this guys. If her appearance gets even a few leftys to actually buy the book and do some reading…(understand I’m not holding my breath)
Still, it would be well worth it!

JusDreamin on August 3, 2009 at 10:32 AM

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Five women enter, one woman (Michelle) leaves.

Vic on August 3, 2009 at 10:32 AM

Buzzed before 11 a.m.

I think that’s an audience requirement. Which explains a lot.

locomotivebreath1901 on August 3, 2009 at 10:32 AM

My guess is, they’re going to attack her over the internment book to the exclusion of the new book.

Rebar on August 3, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I hope it ends as well as the time Zell Miller challeneged Chris Matthews to a duel.

ckdexterhaven on August 3, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I don’t think she will have 4 seconds.Have you ever noticed how someone acts when they can’t wait to get their 2 cents in?They look like they are going to wet themselves! lol

ohiobabe on August 3, 2009 at 10:34 AM

Four Five women enter Thunderdome…

blatantblue on August 3, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Four is correct.

The jury is still out on Behar.

VibrioCocci on August 3, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I have to watch this every morning…the wife DVR’s it.

tomas on August 3, 2009 at 10:36 AM

Lean out any window and listen to the heads exploding.

Sounds like… victory.

profitsbeard on August 3, 2009 at 10:36 AM

I’m calling it now: Screechfest, mindless drone audience that hoots and hollers on cue, strawman arguments galore, and a complete waste of time

Michelle, please repeat this line verbatim at least once in the “interview”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAOxY_nHdew

Sugarbuzz on August 3, 2009 at 10:37 AM

If we had known getting buzzed was a cure for empathy we could have suggested it to Congress and saved a lot of money.

Cindy Munford on August 3, 2009 at 10:37 AM

Dude, I’m nervous. What if Whoopi comes armed with a study proving that fire really can’t melt steel?

The only thing that can melt steel is Joy Behar while watching Thundercrack.

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:38 AM

Will be looking forward to a YouTube clip. I don’t know of any online ABC feeds.

MadisonConservative on August 3, 2009 at 10:39 AM

God Bless Daniel for the courage in his faith to walk into the Lion’s den.

TheBigOldDog on August 3, 2009 at 10:40 AM

I wish I could be at home to watch this today, but only after generous doses of rum and vodka – hold the coke.

Michelle comes armed with a 20 megaton warhead called the truth.

If this goes badly I am warning everyone right now, Allah will make Josey Wales look like Mother Theresa.

God bless you…

cmsinaz on August 3, 2009 at 10:41 AM

Michelle is sooooo brave.

PattyJ on August 3, 2009 at 10:41 AM

This will go well.

Red Cloud on August 3, 2009 at 10:42 AM

I’m giddy with excitement.

What are the odds that Joy Behar will call Michelle a “stupid bitch” to her face?

Sir Corky on August 3, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Is Babwa going to ask Michelle why she doesn’t act like a “real journalist?”

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:43 AM

GIVE EM’ HELL MICHELLE!!!!!!!!

-Wasteland Man.

P.S. I reserve the rights to that T-shirt LULZ!!!

WastelandMan on August 3, 2009 at 10:44 AM

Girl fight!

Joy Behar would need to lose 60+ pounds to drop down into Michelle’s weight class… It is the only way Joy could ever be as “classy” as “The Boss”!!

Go MM!! “NO PRISONERS!!”

Khun Joe on August 3, 2009 at 10:44 AM

Here’s a question for Michelle– How many goofballs are going to email you and tell you off after your appearance with the “shrews” of the view, except Elizabeth of course (is she still there) who is the only sane one on there. Hope Michelle is sitting beside her, for sanities sake.

nwsseeker on August 3, 2009 at 10:44 AM

I’ll just wait so I can watch the clip on YouTube. I wouldn’t want to increase the ratings of that coven of witches.

If I were Michelle, I’d wear a crucifix and take some Holy Water, maybe even a wooden stake.

Special K on August 3, 2009 at 10:45 AM

My guess is, they’re going to attack her over the internment book to the exclusion of the new book.

If that happens, all Michelle need do is remind them that she was defending FDR in that book. That should make their heads explode.

meci on August 3, 2009 at 10:45 AM

If this goes badly I am warning everyone right now, Allah will make Josey Wales look like Mother Theresa.

Limerick on August 3, 2009 at 10:41 AM

That could be interesting.

Cindy Munford on August 3, 2009 at 10:46 AM

I think Michelle will mow them down. She’s been doing this a long time and is a seasoned veteran. They’ve never met the kind of hostility that MM has. Anything they could say, she has an assortment of facts to counter.

INC on August 3, 2009 at 10:48 AM

Odds that this’ll end up as anything other than a complete clusterfark: 80-1.

Er … don’t you mean the odds this ends a complete clusterfark are 80-1 ??? IOW near certainty.

boris on August 3, 2009 at 10:48 AM

I’m watching for the entertainment value of MM beating up on the 3 Liberals. She’s better at this than Hasslebeck is…..the vindictive one is going to be Behar. She knifes someone with no basis in fact.

mngirl on August 3, 2009 at 10:48 AM

The only thing that can melt steel is Joy Behar while watching Thundercrack.

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:38 AM

That made my head hurt. ;p

ladyingray on August 3, 2009 at 10:49 AM

I might try and watch it, just don’t know if I can handle it for an hour.

If this goes badly I am warning everyone right now, Allah will make Josey Wales look like Mother Theresa.

Limerick on August 3, 2009 at 10:41 AM

Awesome visual!

nwsseeker on August 3, 2009 at 10:49 AM

From the press release, it seemed that Michelle would be guest hosting, implying that one of the regulars wouldn’t be there. Is Elisabeth going to be gone today? If so, I really feel bad for Michelle, they’re not going to let up on her.

I really want to see Behar call Michelle a “selfish bitch” to her face. But of course, she’s too chicken to say something like that right to someone.

Sir Corky on August 3, 2009 at 10:49 AM

Anyone betting there will be some tears?

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:50 AM

That made my head hurt. ;p

ladyingray on August 3, 2009 at 10:49 AM

Joy Behar’s respsonse: ……….ehhhh…..

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:50 AM

I suggest you watch this without a dog in the room. The high pitched sounds of the ladies trying to talk over one another can send them into a frenzy.

jacrews on August 3, 2009 at 10:50 AM

I can feel my blood pressure rising just imagining it. Will come here for the high/lowlights later.

mikeyboss on August 3, 2009 at 10:51 AM

I just like there bodies actually cringing in disgust when she sit next to them…It is just so racist.

tomas on August 3, 2009 at 10:51 AM

What’s the point of Michelle going on the View in the first place? The a lovely young Conservative can be put through the shredder for the entertainment of the Left? Only loyal leftists watch that crap and none of them are going to read the book anyway. I don’t get it.

Guardian on August 3, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Ok, I can’t miss a good gunfight. I haven’t watched TheSpew….evah!….looks like today I have to. Just enough time left for a last cigarette and check the loads in the Colt.

Limerick on August 3, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Likelihood that I’ll deal with the mounting anxiety by getting buzzed before airtime: 95 percent.

It’s 9:52am central. O! to be sitting on the couch in front of the Samsung, working on my fourth Newcastle as we approach the opening bell!

Jaibones on August 3, 2009 at 10:52 AM

It will get a lot of play on sites like this one.

tomas on August 3, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Need an MSNBC-style countdown clock

scottm on August 3, 2009 at 10:53 AM

I wonder if Michelle’s car will have room to park at the set… I’ve heard that the new environmentally friendly brooms take up a lot of room.

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:53 AM

I just want to see Michelle take out Joy Behar. It is so amusing watching Behar getting all huffy and cut up when someone completely destroys her deranged arguments and puts her in her place.

Dreadnought223 on August 3, 2009 at 10:53 AM

Limerick, I urge you to put the Colt down. Or maybe disassemble it for cleaning? That tv didn’t just buy itself.

Jaibones on August 3, 2009 at 10:54 AM

Win or Win, Michelle will still end up on Huff-N-Puff and Kwief’s Most Evilist People Evah List.

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:54 AM

BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!

LibTired on August 3, 2009 at 10:54 AM

The blond would do best just letting Michelle handle herself…

Upstater85 on August 3, 2009 at 10:55 AM

Odds are, she will be asked to reflect on the wrongs of the Japanese internment camps of WWII. But I’m going to watch anyway, because Michelle has the fastest mouth, er, brain in the west! I know she will cut through the b*llcr*p!

LEBA on August 3, 2009 at 10:57 AM

Oh Lord,please help Michelle as she walks into this pit of vipers. Help her verbally slay these unearthly demons. Help her vanquish these evil ones.

Jeff from WI on August 3, 2009 at 10:57 AM

Thats why i admire Michelle so much…..the courage it takes to walk into that nightmare is off the charts. I couldnt bring myself to sit at the table with those 3 wack jobs (obviously leaving out Mrs. Hasselbeck). After seeing how they manipulated the conversation on Glenn Beck and turned the focus from real issues, i would be afraid i would go into some cartoonish rage and karate chop the table into pieces while going mixed martial arts on Joy Behar. They would inevitably be seen as the victims and my name would be a dirty word on in the mainstream media for all eternity. Its just not worth it.

That being said– I cant watch for fear that the treatment Michelle receives sends me into a smaller, yet still destructive rage in my living room.

Good Luck Malkin!

AP, you get paid to watch The View but I don’t, so I’ll sit patiently and wait for the high-or-lowlights.

My money is on the racist Asian lady…

CliffHanger on August 3, 2009 at 11:00 AM

You’re good Michelle; Just talk to them the way you talked to Matt Lauer and the sycophants on the weekend programs.
Any minute now, they’ll be attacking you with the same vituperation as Sarah Palin. And this will open up new avenues to publicity!
