    I find this entire discussion pretty interesting.
    I have watched the show only sporadically over the past few years, as these women talk over each other so much it drives me crazy.

    The things she says about President Bush and Vice-President Cheney. I do not have any word for word examples.

    The discussion is very interesting... because on the one hand you have Whoopi complaining that every time someone brings up a failing in the current administration Elisabeth has to bring up Clinton as if two wrongs make a right. On the other hand you have the very same thing happening in this thread.. whenever someone brings up something about Elisabeth you have several piping up with "Well Joy does that, too" or "Well Rosie did that, too" as if that makes it all okay and Elisabeth is all forgiven.

    It's all amusing.

    I was thinking the same thing, but restrained from citing that. It's all along the same vein that I mentioned above, I think.

    Guess that just goes to prove how strong the disagreement to Whoopi's "rule" is. If people are willing to break it themselves, they must really disagree with her!

    It is fair if an accusation is made about one panel member doing something that bothers a poster to point out the same action in other panel members.

    If a person is strong in their beliefs, then there is a good chance that they will repeat the same opinions more than once.

    What on earth does Elisabeth need to be forgiven for?

    Really? She always struck me as a narrow minded halfwit.

    Yes she is, I guess that is intimidating to some people.
