In never-thought-you’d-see-the-day news, staunch conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck went off on The View yesterday, railing against none other than Sarah Palin.
Why? Because Palin, for whom she campaigned during the ’08 election, released an ad that put 20 Democratic members of Congress literally in the crosshairs.
Palin’s call to kill Democrats grass roots action came in response to the Dems’ big f*%king deal overhaul of the health care system, which she’s very opposed to.
The former Alaska Governor’s Facebook page features her political action committee’s ad targeting the 20 Democratic incumbents, with a SarahPac map marking districts where Democrats voted “yes” for health care reform with guns.
Elisabeth would like a mulligan on this campaign rally.
Hasselbeck also opposes health reform, but she’s actually far more upset about how people on her own side of the political spectrum are handling themselves.
“I think the way some Republicans are handling this is nothing more than despicable,” she said in response to Palin’s tasteless ad. “It’s disappointing to see this coming from the Party, and I would hope that leaders like Sarah Palin would end this.”
No word if Sarah also plugged Bristol Palin on there somehow.
Liberal-leaning co-host Joy Behar got Elisabeth going by saying the map looked “like an Al Qaeda Christmas card.” We were surprised to watch Elisabeth concur.
