Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been asked by Sarah Palin to introduce her on Sunday at several campaign stump rallies in Florida. The ABC co-host of The View, a staunch Republican, is revved up and excited to help Alaska’s governor in any way she can.

Palin is John McCain‘s controversial VP pick who has been experiencing a tremendous media backlash concerning her $150,000 wardrobe expenses and her lack of experience. SNL has had a heyday with the help of Tina Fey. Check out all of the SNL videos in our related articles at the bottom of this post.

Hasselbeck made the announcement on Thursday’s show: “I am more than honored to be there, so I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people, I have a feeling. That’s an honor, I’m excited to do it, and I’ll have some stories I’m sure on Monday.”

This is not the first time Elisabeth has been rewarded for her Republican flag waving views. She got a coveted invite to the White House from George W. Bush when Queen Elizabeth was in Washington D.C. for a State Dinner. That drove the ladies of The View crazy and this new campaign stumping adventure is sure to get their tongue’s wagging. Joy Behar, in particular, will be absolutely over the edge and will be ready with her bag of one-liners. The comedian recently called Palin dumb.

Governor Palin can be sure that Elisabeth has ‘got her back’. She’s still a cheerleader of Bush after all the country has been through, albeit not quite as loudly. We can’t wait to see Monday’s show.
