    If the others would let EH "win" a discussion or two, I'd bet she'd back off. She NEVER gets to have a right opinion on anything. And after awhile that does get old and puts a person on the defensive.

    Some of that though comes from the fact that it is so often 3 or 4 vs 1. And, as PugMum pointed out, some of that comes from disagreement from some of the other women - Joy especially - coming from a perspective of "how dare you think that" rather than "I see what you're saying, I just disagree". That's why I think that Elisabeth SO didn't need to go there in the tax debate yesterday. In that case, she had Whoopi on her side. But she's so used to being attacked, that when she wasn't alone in her view, instead of savoring it and growing it, she made it an us against them, and lost Whoopi.

    But no one usually "wins" a discussion. A discussion should be just that - a discussion. Everyone's voice is heard.
    No one should get defensive over airing their views, and that goes for Elizabeth as well as Joy or anyone else on that panel of ladies.

    Re: The View

    The show was pre-empted in my area today. GR!

    I hate when that happens. What'd I miss? I guess I could just wait until tomorrow and watch the clips on the site, but I know Jenna Jameson was going to be on today and was wondering how that went? And Kim Cattrall (from one of my favorite shows of all time, SATC) - how'd that go?

    I'm not too find of Kim Cattrall so I didn't pay a lot of attention to her interview.
    I thought the Jenna Jameson interview was reasonably interesting though, but boy has she gone overboard with work to her once lovely face.
    Babs barely looked at Jameson throughout the interview.
    Elisabeth asked a question about AIDS in the porn industry.
    Although Jameson didn't say this, porn stars making movies for the big (in porn terms) studios are tested for a battery of STD's every month. The program is run by an ex-porn actress.
    Plus the big stars sleep with a fairly small pool of people, so it really is pretty safe, unlike in the days on John Holmes and the like.
    They can't work unless their results are clean and they also have to pass drug tests.

    I thought Jameson was pretty interesting. She's been through a lot, miscarriage, divorce and severe weight loss in the space of 9 months.
    I thought she carried herself really well.

    I turned on the View a few minutes late today. Guess the girls were discussing the ABC debate last night. At one point, did I hear correctly that EH thought that the economy was strong at the moment? Even Sheri disagreed with EH's assessment.

    No, Elisabeth did not make such a claim. She was objecting to Joy's misrepresentation of John McCain's statement that he knew more about the military than he did the economy. In all of the cross-talk, Sherri said something about McCain saying that the fundamentals of the economy were sound. Elisabeth attempted to explain that McCain was not claiming that the economy was fine when he said that, but rather that the core mechanics were strong, and we needed to build on them. In all of the things Elisabeth said, she was talking about John McCain's statements not her own. But McCain has not said the economy is strong right now, and neither did Elisabeth.

    Thanks for the clarification, Veruka. Since I came into it late, and saw all the others giving EH the usual looks of disbelief, I really wondered what I had missed.

    How cute was it when Sherri teared up today? She was so overcome with emotion b/c Lawrence Fishburn had remembered meeting her a long time ago before she was on The View, and then she mentioned something about how she couldn't believe she was on the same stage as Whoopi Goldberg and Fishburn and she started to cry. It was so sweet!

    Re: The View

    Mr buglover watched The View for a little bit the other day (I know...who'd a thought!) and they commented on men shaving their bodies. One of the women was outraged that men do that and the audience didn't agree. I have to laugh at the fact my DH is watching these women and then telling me about what he's seen!
    Yup, with donuts!!
