    Laura Ingraham was ridiculous.
    What a horribly pompous woman. She decided to use her appearance on the show to be critical of Michelle Obama but when the co-hosts questioned her about her obvious issues with her, Ingraham then bellows, "why are we talking about Michelle Obama?"
    Ingraham's a wingnut.

Plus, she's a great deal funnier on her own show. I know their trademark is for everyone to talk over each other, but it drives me crazy and I turn it off.
    ITA with everything you've said. And that stupid Valley Girl voice that Whoopi uses just about every day got old in the first 10 minutes.

    E'twit was at her shrieky, shrill, obnoxious best today over the joking comment Kathy Griffin made about Sen. Brown's daughters. While I think Kathy's comment was probably in poor taste (how unusual for a comedian!), E'twit was obviously thrilled to have the opportunity to call Kathy "scum" thrown right in her lap.

    Thank you. I dislike that Valley Girl act the first time I saw her do it and each additional time is just painful. Why does she keep doing it?????? I wish she would hang it up.

    I turned if off after that. E'twit is like a robot programmed to start spewing as soon as somebody (Bill Geddie) pushes the button.

    It was fairly typical of Geddie to only show the part of the clip where Kathy called the Brown daughters prostitutes and omit the part where she apologized afterwards and said it was just a joke.
    Apparently Bravo also ran a caption on the screen explaining for the hard of thinking that they aren't actually prostitutes.

    Elisabeth is every inch the coward.
    She had plenty to say about Kathy today but when Kathy was on the show and invited her to "bring it" Elisabeth clammed up.

    I don't think it was a particularly funny joke, but she was obviously making reference to Scott Brown saying his daughter Ayla was available in the speech he made after he was elected, which itself was obviously supposed to be a quip.

    I thought the Valerie Plame Wilson interview was quite good today. Minimal interuptions so she got the chacne to tell her story. Elisabeth didn't rush to provide a tearful defence of the Bush administration.
    I guess she realised that was an argument she couldn't possibly win.

    I often tape Monday's show because of hot topics. After reading some of the previous comments, I didn't bother watching much. Thanks for giving me back about 40 minutes of my life!

    What is the word used to describe Bethenny Frankel's face? I find her face-shape disrtracting.

    I believe the word is angular - lol. I've always thought the same about her face.
