Full disclosure here: I cannot stand Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
It’s not so much that she’s a staunch Republican, it’s that she does not seem to have a fully formed mind. She has been known to parrot certain conservative talking points with utter conviction and just does not seem to me to be at the level of some of the other cohosts [not including Sherri Shepherd] on The View who seem to speak more from life experience.
Anyway, Elisabeth once again went off on things she knows nothing about when the topic turned to women coming out later in life as lesbians. Hasselbeck thinks she knows why: Guys their age are going after younger women leaving these poor gals with no one but each other.
Uh, I don’t think that’s how it works but maybe Meredith Baxter can go on the show soon and talk some sense into this gal.
Joy Behar did a pretty good job of debunking this theory: “That’s ridiculous. I’m sorry.”
“Being gay is not just holding hands and walking through the tulips,” Joy added. “There are things people do sexually. I don’t think you suddenly wake up one day and say, ‘Oh, I wanted to do that.’ You wanted to do it, but you were just trapped in a system that has just said, ‘get married.’”
I can’t wait to hear Elisabeth’s theories on the economy and world peace when President Barack Obama visits the show this week.
