Don't Back Down Elisabeth

Elisabeth Filarski is feeling the heat from the ABC family after she made parroted THN's position on Erin Andrews' Dancing with the Stars appearance.

The token conservative voice of The View doesn't think much about Andrews' skimpy dresses.

"In light of what happened ... and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and try to peep on her in her hotel room ... I mean, in some way if I [was] him, I [would be] like, 'Man! I just could've waited 12 weeks and seen this — a little bit less — without the prison time!'"

Boom! Roasted!

That was pretty good. Of course, in this current climate, you cannot have a sense of humor on the air without people getting on your case.

Elisabeth -- which I imagine came after some pressure for the ABC executives -- recanted her statement. Of course Andrews blathered on, playing the victim, saying that she burst into tears after hearing Elisabeth's statements.

Yeah, we get it. Your rights were violated. You are filmed in a grainy video. Your life sucks.

What's amazing. Those of you who doubt that Andrews has played this perfectly, just look at the DWTS results. Pamela Anderson had a sex tape (a real one) released to the world. Soccer moms voted her off the show. Andrews played the victim, America loves her.

Honestly, well played, Andrews.

But when is this going to stop? Elisabeth was just pointing out the obvious? Does she not have a right to express her opinion? That is the point of "The View" right? Why are those people who have opposing view points always muzzled because they are not popular. Lighten up, people.

What a surprise that this story would be right up your alley. It involves Erin Andrews, and Elizabeth whats-her-face, two figures you are obsessed with.

If only this could've involved the Angels or Pac-10 football, your head would've exploded

Don't fret, Cowboy Honk. Wasshername can play the victimized conservative. I can only imagine the poutrage from the legions of hairy-palmed wingnut bloggers! As for the free speech issue, let me just go back and read your impassioned defense of the Dixie Chicks...
OK. It may take awhile to find that. Anyway, it's a moot point. See, unlike blogs, professional media outlets are in the money-making business and unpopular opinions, political and otherwise, can have a negative impact on shareholders. She could've played it smart, brought the cheap heat, and called the other wasshername a fat sow and an attention whore who let the USC backfield give her the airtight seal. Wasshername number one, unfortunately, is too stupid to safely cut her own food so that didn't happen. On the other hand, lack of mental accumen is actually an asset if you're aiming to be the pinup girl of conservative butthurt.

I usually don't agree with Token Wingnut (Elizabeth) on things but I'm with her on this one. I was thinking the exact same thing but didn't have the cajones to say it at the time.

Who are the Dixie Chicks?

Jesus H. Christ. Hasselbeck spends the better part of every show bursting into tears because one of the mean liberals looked at her wrong.

One perpetual victim criticizing another. It's a cat fight, not news.

Hey - what's going on in the world of sports? How 'bout them Halos?

I presume the post was written after the token bawled out her retraction on the tayvee. No commentary on that...WTF?!

We already know the game EA/SPN are playing. The last thing either of these broads need is attention. If y'all'd kept quiet about them (and cowgirl) for a while longer, they'd both be in porn.

Saving that video, the token would do well to accept that she's as irrelevant as the other three(?) washed up broads on that show.

Erin is a Beautiful lady, while Hasselbeck is just a jealous angry cunt.
