Take a little time to enjoy... Elisabeth Hasselbeck

I know it makes my husband very upset that I watch this show, which wasn’t a problem until my shift at work changed and now I’m home in the morning and I’m re-addicted. The show is The View. I really didn’t think I would be that interested now that Rosie is on it, but really, Meredith wasn’t much better. And even though all Rosie talks about is being gay and hating President Bush, it’s really Joy Behar that gets on my nerves the most. Yet, I still keep tuning in… Obviously the person I identify most closely with is Elisabeth Hasselbeck . We’re both in our late 20s and conservative. I’ve been a fan of hers since she was on Survivor, then I watched her on The Look for Less when she hosted that, and now the View. Everyday when I watch the first portion of the show that they call Hot Topics, I just don’t know how she can stand to be on that show and have to put up with those crazy liberals and I start getting so upset for her, but then I realize why she is there… she is giving all of us who oppose Rosie & Joy a voice, and for that I am very grateful! I mean, basically that is the point of the show, Barbara Walters created it because she wanted a show with woman of different generations, different view points, etc. and she got it, but it seems like it’s everyone vs. Elisabeth most days. Baba Wawa is mostly neutral, but Joy & Rosie completely agree on most everything and they seem to gang up on Elisabeth, which again, makes me think, “Elisabeth, get out there! Quit putting up with them and leave!” But what fun would that be for us, the viewers? Seriously, I am so proud of her and for what she stands for – if there were an Elisabeth Hasselback fan club, I would be in it!

You should start one. I'll join. Do I get to meet Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

Believe it or not, I actually saw this show yesterday, just by chance after reading your post. It was playing in the waiting room of the Student Health Center while I was waiting to get my flu shot. I'm afraid her understanding of Christianity morality (in re: Ted Haggard) left something to be desired.

Yeah, I really don't know where she stands on many "religious" issues, or what her real beliefs are, I just know I'm happy she stands up to those other two on that show and I agree with her on MOST issues. Way to go Phillip for watching The View! (I missed yesterdays episode)
