Video: Wherein Elisabeth Hasselbeck says something sort of spot-on

by Jeremy Hooper

We don't dislike Hasselbeck by any means. However, we agree with her about 0.01% of the time, and never expect her conservative self to risk her credentials by taking our pro-gay marriage side. Thus the reason why this is so refreshingly shocking:

Rosie might actually be proud. The Devil, on the other hand, is pissed that he has to go buy ice skates.

Your thoughts

Jeremy, perhaps you shouldn't be too surprised. For younger conservatives, the old "hate the gays" nonsense doesn't fly and some conservatives pride themselves on being "fair". I think we'll see more and more of this sort of language from conservatives in the future - especially those who consider themselves to be libertarian or sophisticated. Of course some of the "family values" folks will fight to the very bitter nasty bileous end.

Honestly, Timothy: I'm not at all surprised Elisabeth feels this way. She's always come across as accepting. However, my shock was in that she voiced these opinions in this way on "The View." She always seems so dead set on playing the "conservative commentator." I was surprised she went where she did with seemingly no hesitation.

I'm not sure she said what you seem to think she said.

Could you please quote the part where you think she said that SSM and marriage recognition should be merged?

Thanks.

Disagreement with such a merger does not mean hatred, by the way.

Chairm: Whoever claimed that she said "SSM and marriage recognition should be merged?" What she said was that was so welcome is that gay people are not the ones who should be blamed for marriage destruction, and she supported the idea that civil unions are not enough.

Also, nobody ever said disagreement equals hatred. Please don't try and shoot down or refute claims that were never made in the first place.
