Jezebel created an amazing clip reel of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's 25 most annoying moments of 2008, but they only hint at a larger point, which is that the Republican castmember isn't smart enough to be on The View. As much as Laura Ingraham — and even, dare we say it, Ann Coulter — can be monstrously cold, at least they're informed and nimble debaters who'd stand a chance against Joy Behar. Has anyone else ever suspected that the show's liberal-leaning producers keep Hasselbeck on because she makes conservatives look like knee-jerk rejection robots? [Jezebel]
