With 100% More Kool-Aid!

The View was awesome yet again this morning, thanks partly to Elisabeth waking up on the wrong side of the bed and also because of Whoopi's absence. Poor Barbara Walters had to mediate between Joy and Elisabeth, which was ineffective and led to one of the more intense shouting matches we've seen as of late.

The tension begins around the 4:00 mark, where Joy attempts to explain why Sarah Palin's likability has plummeted, which — of course! — Elisabeth takes personally and uses as an excuse to announce her respect for George W. Bush. Yeah, seriously. She believes W is the reason America has stayed safe from terrorism for the past seven years, but implies that the country will be blown to smithereens under an Obama presidency. Even Barbara takes issue with this, which leads to an even more glorious moment of Elisabeth getting snippy with her boss.

The segment ends — after much screeching — with Elisabeth offering Joy more "Obama kool-aid," because she's that mature. The only person who escaped this argument unscathed? Sherri Shepherd. What a strange, strange world this has become.

The fact that Joy Behar knows who David Brooks is and the paper that he writes for. Amazing.

No. 24 toledoan says:

I think the reference to "Obama Kool Aid" is not about Jonestown. Last week, in the news, there was an "Obama Dollar Bill" story… where someone had put a drawing of Obama along with Kool Aid, fried chicken, and other drawings that obviously reflected racist stereotypes. I think Eliabeth knew that - she didn't refer to Kool Aid, she said "Obama Kool Aid"… I think she was just endorsing the racist slur on Obama.

Just like SNL did with the original cast, I think The View should clean house and start with a whole new cast.

No. 26 say what? says:

toledoan, I respectfully disagree. and here's why…

first, that "drinking the Obama koolaid" was used well before those disgusting "obama bills" came out.

second, the republicans used that same stupid "insult" with clinton supporters.

third, using that term implies that you are following blindly, like Jim Jones supporters did.

the Jonestown reference is EXACTLY what they mean when they say it.

No. 28 admittedlyaddicted says:

In reference to this, "…but implies that the country will be blown to smithereens under an Obama presidency."

I was hoping Mollygood would post something about it, and I admittedly have not had time to google it very deeply…but my mom called yesterday and was saying that Biden made some comment to the effect that he was sure that if Obama was elected, we would have an international conflict within 6 months. I don't know the direct quote or the context, so I was wondering if anyone hear heard about it.

IF that is the case, is it not a little unsettling that his on VP thinks we'd have issues?

No. 29 admittedlyaddicted says:

I found it:

ABC News' Matthew Jaffe Reports: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

I guess it depends on if you think he was talking only about Obama or if he meant any new president. I haven't seen a transcript, but here are two links:

Here is a pretty big chunck of what Biden said as well as McCain's response

And here is what Obama said later on. If you google it and hit news, you can find the latest chatter.

I'm sorry, but I don't take Elisabeth seriously. She's passionate– sure, but to the point where I think it becomes personal. I'm not sure she's able to debate without taking it personally.

I love a good debate, and I'm open to opposing points of view. But I dislike when it elevates to screaming or making harsh and radical statements without anything to back up what you just said.

No. 33 admittedlyaddicted says:

lisa…yes, but he mentions in the beginning specifically Obama. So, I don't know, nor do I care too much. It's probably going to happen either way, so I'll just use it as an excuse to continue my weekend binge drinking. :)
