    I missed most of the show. I just tuned in and heard Whoopi tell her that she could dish it out but that she couldn't take it. Boy I hate I missed it. I hope they did not just sit there and listen to her bull without calling her on it.

    No, they did not just sit there. Even Sherri chimed in and told her about the way she was speaking to people. She was definitely obnoxious and obviously something happened during the commercial break b/c she didn't come back on

    Any show that doesn't do exactly that is making a huge mistake. Ann exists to get people talking about her. When hosts of any show fight back against her, she has an uncanny ability to turn that around and make them look like the attack dogs. Its especially ironic now since her latest book is about liberals exploiting victimization and that is exactly what she's doing, but she's got a real gift for doing it. So when a show hosts her by just saying "Okay, hwat's your book about? Nice to see you. Goodbye" it's an apperance and then it's over. When hosts try to fight back agaisnt her, or avoid her, or whatever, she finds ways to get more press out of it, as she did with the Today show last week. So I think the best think for the ladies of The View to do would have been to let her talk, roll their eyes, and move on.

    or they could pull a Grey's Anatomy and just take turns saying "Seriously???!?!?!?!" after everything she says. That would actually crack me up.

    Wow, I have never seen Ann Coulter before (is she on Fox? our satellite package does not include Fox News) but had heard of her before. I am surprised that anyone would buy her book or that she even has a platform upon which to proselytize. Someone actually PAYS for that rhetoric? *shaking my head* Sad.

    I think you're probably right Veruka, but my God! How hard would it be for anyone to sit silently by and let that woman talk?

    I was extremely annoyed by Barbara today and then the segment with Ann Coulter came on and I realized that BW could be WAY more annoying.

    I thought Sherri showed some spunk, but Elisabeth was pretty quiet. At least until Joy dissed her BFF Sarah.

    Something reeeellly bad must have happened during the break--I've never heard Barbara so angry the way she was at the end of the show.

    I am sooo glad that Whoopi said--"You can dish it out but you can't take it."

    I was so proud of the ladies today--except of course for E.



    I don't think we have to worry about seeing Annie on the show anymore.

    Whew!

    That's actually what I like about Ann. I don't always agree with her because she is such a right wing nut but I think she's spunky and entertaining. She is definitely obnoxious but she makes me laugh.

    I didn't see the show, but isn't this Ann person the one that made disparaging comments about Jewish people? It might have been something about that. There's a thread here at the FORT about it, but I haven't read it.
