Elizabeth Hasse...Oh Who Gives a Shit

So Elizabeth Hasselbeck is all annoyed...no, no, "repulsed" by the Obama team trying to buy a 30 minute ad on CNN.

Remind me again why anyone gives a fuck about what a former reality TV personality (on Survivor, no less) has to say about anything? And yes, in case you were wondering, that is a very blatant ad hominem. Here's the thing, if you're on a show with four other people, ostensibly co-hosting and discussing the issues of the day, and not one of those people can shut you down when you're arguing FOR theistic evolution and against abortion, there's a goddamn problem.

I'd like to see her argue with someone - anyone with half a brain.

You know, I actually thought she was cute on Survivor, and I don't even watch Survivor. Still, that doesn't make you qualified to discuss any of these issues. Unfortunately, people like her won't be taken down on the air because criticizing views like hers is mostly off-limits because those are the views of most of the viewing public. You can't alienate 80% of your audience.

You're right - you can't alienate 80% of your audience but maybe if there was an intelligent skeptic on that show, then more skeptics would watch. These shows tend to pander to dumb America but maybe there is an audience of skeptics out there, I know I'd like something to watch an intelligent, critcally-based thinking show. I used to watch Larry King but what the fuck happened to him?
