For the second day in a row, ABC’s The View on Tuesday featured a conservative female as a guest host. But Barbara Walters and the other co-anchors largely avoided politics as they welcomed Mary Katharine Ham. The Hot Air editor talked about her right-leaning views for a total of one minute. Then, the show shifted to the “hot topics” segments, including a discussion of the TV show The Bachelor, dieting and the drug addiction of the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
During her brief window to discuss politics, Ham explained that she grew up in the “very liberal” Durham, North Carolina. She noted, “I went to public schools. Majority, minority districts and I had very up close experience with social programs and how they were working and who they were failing.” Ham described her philosophy this way: “Look, when things get bigger, they get ineffective. When they get bigger, you can bully people easier.”
To which Barbara said, “Yes, but if you were a twee, what kind of twee would you be?”
Scott Whitlock went on to ponder the obvious question as to why “The View” is suddenly so conciliatory to bigoted, intolerant teabaggers who are dumber than a dump truck full of rocks and shouldn’t be alive on the planet.
On Monday, conservative radio host Dana Loesch appeared as a guest host and the show largely followed the same pattern. She talked about political evolution briefly and then the show shifted to less consequential “hot topics.”
Is the point is to find a right-wing replacement for the departed Elisabeth Hasselbeck? (Otherwise, why the sudden addition of back-to-back conservative hosts?) If so, wouldn’t it make sense to have more political talk?
Adding fuel to this theory, Walter introduced Ham by insisting, “We know you’re conservative. We like to have that voice on the show.” [NewsBusters]
Anyway, here is the five minutes of Mary Katherine ABC thought it safe to release on YouTube without danger of a pandemic of conservative logic breaking out. I don’t know, it could go viral, and then where would we be?
Whoopi, the boots go really well with the dyke-chic ensemble!
