(Politico)   The View struggles to find a Meghan McCain replacement that will (a) resonate with their conservative viewers, and (b) isn't a Q-Anon, Anti-vax, Big Lie pushing, January 6 denier. May replace with Bigfoot instead as that will be much easier to locate   (politico.com) divider line

How about none? None republicans.

I can't hear the word "Bigfoot" without thinking of Eddie Murphy's drunk father ranting to Uncle Gus about Aunt Bunny, and what happened when he took their kids fishing.

Not every opinion deserves to be legitimized, normalized, or given a platform on a national stage.

Meghan's brand of "we can be conservative and not kill gay people" was kind of fresh back when her waist to chest ratio was..... different.

Now it's a pretty milquetoast position at best with "reasonable" conservatives, and the hardcore tribe is still against it. Meghan never really had a position other than "I'm John McCain's daughter and conservatives can be reasonable. Now, onto why Trump is doing a good job..."

Unless John has another daughter hanging around, I can't fathom how they would find a "reasonable" conservative that anyone would be interested in listening to.

The fact that they feel the need for this "balance" is already bullshiat.

Do they have the libbiest lib to ever lib on the show already. Or is it just the right wing that needs to be catered to
 
2021-12-28 11:49:56 AM  
So a republican that doesn't believe whacky lies but supports the president?

Let me know when you find the Easter Bunny too.

Anybody who hasn't drunk the Right Wing Kool-Aid is ipso facto the libbiest lib.

It's pretty hard to find a social conservative that's also pleasant, mainly because they define themselves by what they hate.

You can only really fill it with a pantomime villain, who knows exactly what their role is.

Maybe Liz Mair?

It's The View, it is already filled to the brim with unpleasant people, regardless of political viewpoint.

Maybe talk about the process on the show, pointing out the INSANE beliefs of the US Right.

Two questions:

1. How is "The View" still a thing?
2. Why was "The View" ever a thing in the first place?

Translation:

We need to find a leftist who isn't quite as Marxist as us who will agree with every intellectually bankrupt thing we say while still laughably calling themselves a "Republican"
 
2021-12-28 12:33:43 PM  
Patricia Heaton is what they are looking (moderate Republican, anti-Trump) but she has a little too much class for other harpies
 
2021-12-28 12:34:07 PM

I have twins that are now toddlers. Over the past couple of years, we've needed help from my mom a few times (wife or I has a procedure, I'm working etc.).  So my mom has spent multiple weekdays at a time here or there helping out.

TLDR/CSB
She would put on those morning shows in the tv room every day. Think Kathy Lee, but she's gone and now it's Jenna Bush and a guest host. I was pretty dumbfounded that these were still a thing and that someone I knew that's not a simpleton actually put it on. I think it's a generational thing, and these morning and View type shows will go extinct before long. Or at least be relegated to the CW with a very small audience.

I'm sure you can list a couple of examples.  I've been repeatedly assured there are hundreds of completely off-the-rails bugsh$t positions the left has been shouting from the mountaintops.

The crazy left, believing in voting for all Americans - even seditious scumbags who support a greasy cypher that makes fun of the disabled.

Yep, BSAB for sure.

Liz Cheney is gonna need a job and filling in for someone who can start every other sentence with "well, my dad..." is in her wheelhouse.
 
2021-12-28 12:37:35 PM  
BARI WEISS and LISA LING - neither of whom exactly fit the "conservative" label

Unless ABC is getting the guy from Storage Wars and doesn't know how to spell his name, I'm pretty sure the pro-apartheid professional victim who pays her bills running a scam college and making public appearances as the Tomi Lahren for Velma fetishists is, indeed, a perfect fit for the "conservative" label.

Looking forward to that sentence being finished by whichever harridan first hears it: "shot a guy who was on his side."

I ran across this on twitter yesterday, and there was a coordinated effort among right wing accounts to push Candace Owens as a balanced and intelligent replacement. And that was when I decided I had enough internet for the day and walked outside into the peaceful release of a snow drift.

The modern conservative's point of view is vile, hateful and greedy. Keep it off the air wherever possible.

The Lone Biker of the Apocalypse: Patricia Heaton is what they are looking (moderate Republican, anti-Trump) but she has a little too much class for other harpies


I like Patricia Heaton, but I dock her a few points for going on a "it's hard to find work in this business as a conservative Christian" rant when she has two long-running, highly successful sitcoms on her resume.

I'm surprised they didn't settle on Sippy Cupp.

And why not Ana Navarro? Have her breathless regalings of her father's exploits raping civilians and burning churches down to stop the possible spread of socialism no longer entertaining?

They look at her the same way the party of Matt Gaetz and Dennis Hastert sees her: Too old.

The problem here may be that they want to go with a woman.

FFS it seems like they want a milquetoast George Will with a vagina. Good luck.

/oh, no, let me guess... they'll get the former eBay and HP CEO... or some corporate hack like that...

Give Americans a look at what a real leftist believes.
