Two Half Wits

Posted in Politics with tags , on October 26, 2008 by gyma

Mr. gyma saw the news tonight when they were talking about Hasselbeck campaigning with Palin.  He stated with a very straight face that two half wits do not make a wit.

But it is good to know that:

[…]

“Those clothes, they are not my property. Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else that the RNC purchased, I’m not taking them with me. I am back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska. You’d think — not that I would even have to address the issue because, as Elisabeth is suggesting, the double standard here it’s — gosh, we don’t even want to waste our time.”

Palin, however, forged on.

“I am glad, though, that she brought up accessories also. Let me tell you a little bit about a couple of accessories, didn’t think that we would be talking about it, but my earrings — I see a Native Americans for Palin poster,” she said. “These are beaded earrings from Todd’s mom who is a Yupik Eskimo up in Alaska, Native American, Native Alaskan. 

“And my wedding ring, it’s in Todd’s pocket, ’cause it hurts sometimes when I shake hands and it gets squished,” she continued. “A $35 wedding ring from Hawaii that I bought myself and ’cause I always thought with my ring it’s not what it’s made of, it’s what it represents, and 20 years later, happy to wear it. And then finally the other accessory, you bet I’m a gold — I’m a blue star mom. I’m wearing this in honor of my son who is fighting over in Iraq right now defending all of you.”

Palin spent four minutes talking about this very important topic AFTER Hasselbeck admonished the media and the Obama campaign for focusing on this story instead of the important things Americans are worried about. 

Are these people deaf?  Can they not hear what they are saying?  I’m really looking forward to November 5th!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Her Strong “Views”

Posted in Politics with tags , , on September 9, 2008 by gyma

I think Hasselbeck is an untalented, vacuous tool who is able to memorize and spout off Republican talking points very well.  Why Barbara Walters allows her to do this is beyond comprehension.  I just emailed the producers of The Viewand told them I felt Hasselbeck needed to be removed from the show or they need to stop discussing politics. 

It seems what Hasselbeck did in this video is in violation of some unwritten rules by which all professionals abide.  Can you imagine how Hasselbeck would have felt had Whoopi Goldberg traveled to the DNC and said something similar about Cindy McCain?  Hasselbeck is like most ill-informed Republicans – she can dish it out, but she can’t take it.

Time for her to go.
