Elisabeth

Calls Sen. Kerry

'Mel Without The Booze'

11/1/2006 3:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, in a fit of right-wing pique, called Sen. John Kerry "Mel Gibson without the booze" over his remarks on troops in Iraq on "The View" this morning -- and Joy Behar didn't like it one bit.

Elisabeth and Joy began their sparring when Joy criticized President Bush and his lieutentants for "making hay" out of Sen. Kerry's remarks on Monday when he suggested to group of students that a poor education would lead to their being "stuck in Iraq," offending troops and politicians everywhere (Kerry said yesterday that he mishandled a joke, and meant to criticize the Bush administration.)

That persistently doctrinaire right-wing political thinker Elisabeth jumped all over Kerry (and Joy), equating the Senator to "Mel Gibson without the booze," slamming his flip-flops, and then defended President Bush for his "higher IQ" and "better grades" than Kerry while the two were at Yale. Joy was having none of it, and the two exchanged a flurry of invectives.

But -- surprise! -- it was Rosie defusing the situation with a few bars of her favorite Barbra. And it all made that other Barbara -- Walters -- put her head down in (perhaps not-so-mock) exasperation.

U Know Who    

Still Kerry was WRONG on all counts, sh*t even Hillary has said his comments were "Inappropriate".

Plus the man was DEAD WRONG either way. GWB is the more educated of the two of them.

AND the FACT is:

95% OF U.S. Armed Forces Have a Highschool Diploma (or the equivalent of)

ONLY 75% OF THE GENERAL POPULATION - Have a HS Diploma (or the equivalent of).

Kerry's statements either way , were kinda dumb (WOW IRONY!).


Also I always call the guy that BEAT ME in an PRESIDENTIAL election dumb. But then what does that make me?

Whatever    

Elisabeth has sawdust in her brain. She fantasizes about having a threesome with George Bush and her bald ass scrub of a husband.

Typical Liberal LIER-CRAP,

Can you tell me who's the "leading Republican has already admitted that Republicans know full well that Kerry was talking about Bush and not the troops"??

Even Hillary-TRASH-Clinton called this morning for Kerry to apologize.

ALL DEMOCRATS HAVE CALL FOR KERRY-TALIBAN LOVER TO APOLOGIZE

STUPIDS

Military wife    

As a military wife, I feel the need to comment on this. While I think that Kerry probably did just fumble a joke, you can bet that if it had been done by a republican, the democrats would jump all over it too. My husband is well-educated and chose to join the armed forces to make a difference in this country, not to be ridiculed, accidentally or not, by some idiot. As for comment #4 by eli, I don't where you did your research. If soldiers are killed, their families are well taken care of. Regardless of how and when it happens, if my husband is killed, his military life insurance will pay me to take care of my family.

GO GRETA! Why don't politicians just stick to politics, singers to singing and leave the joke-telling to the great comics like Jay Leno, David Letterman and Roseanne (sometimes)! Hummm...I wonder what the ratings would be if Jay sang tonight on his show? He is Italian and has a good orchestra so I bet he could knock our socks off with his rendition of a few good arias or two!!! He has also been a gracious host to many of those seen on The
View and elsewhere. Too bad he isn't on in the daytime instead of these idiots!

U Know Who    

John Kerrys comments will do one thing for sure. Any and every Conservative that was feeling a bit apathetic about the upcoming vote. Will most DEFINITELY go out and vote after Mr.Heinz wonderful commentary.

Elisabeth's main problem is that she's not interesting or entertaining. The View isn't a news show, it's a yak fest. I'm so sick of hearing that machine gun voice and seeing that idiotic expression on her stupid face. Geez, there's got to be hundreds of women who would be suitable replacements...

TOTAL SIDE NOTE:

Most of you here that are madly in love with John Kerry.

Are a bunch of the same people that hate K-Fed for freeloading off his wife.
FYI that's all John Kerry has ever done as well, mooch off his TWO rich wives. Without them this man would have been a homeless bum.....

Oops the hypocrisy is catching up to you.......
