What Did the Year 2008 Do to Deserve Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

By

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]
