Let’s Hear it for Elisabeth Hasselbeck

One of those weird coincidences that sometimes happens. I don’t watch The View. But this morning when I turned on the TV, it happened to be tuned to the show, and a young blonde woman was telling about seeing a stroller, two children in it, out on the sidewalk in front of an NYC establishment, no adult responsible for it in sight. She said she stopped and stood guard by the stroller for approximately seven minutes before the woman appeared whose responsibility the stroller was. When the woman finally came out, it transpired that it was the nanny, not the mother, who had left these children parked alone in front of the place while she went in and got her breakfast. Blonde Woman gave her a dressing-down and was ruminating over whether or not to try to get word to the parents of these children.

Good for her. I would be inclined to do the same. Nobody has any business leaving small children unattended in a public place for any length of time.

Later in the day, Hot Air shows me this. Thank you, Allahpundit! Blonde Guardian of Abandoned Stroller is Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and I applaud her courageous stand on this issue. Note especially how circumcise Mel Gibson in public” Joy Behar sits there looking like she’s smelling curdled milk as Elisabeth unfolds the radical idea that life begins at conception.

What about Barbara Walters’s assertion that “your life may be totally ruined” if you become pregnant by a rape? Why must it be ruined? Can’t it be grotesquely upset for a while, until you decide whether to keep your child or give him/her up for adoption? And if you’re talking grotesquely upset, wouldn’t the rape alone accomplish that, pregnant or not? Once again feminism is self-defeating: Why encourage strong coping skills, good decision making, responsibility, and firmness of mind in a woman when you can just flush the embryo down the memory hole and hope she gets over it?


  1. Go Elisabeth Hasselbeck…

    You may now consider me an avid supporter of Elisabeth Hasselbeck. When the subject of selling the Plan B “Morning after pill” over-the-counter came up on ‘The View’ this morning, Ms. Hasselbeck was ready to throw down:

    I ha…

  2. Go Elisabeth Hasselbeck…

    You can always count on the left to try and make a rule out of an extreme. Apparently they are unable to differentiate between passing this stuff out like candy and using it for exceptional cases under a doctor???s care.

  3. I wanted to tell you about a new service I just started in October 2006. I am a child abuse and sex crimes prosecutor in New York City and I am currently on maternity leave with my second child. While on leave, I started a site called http://HowsMyNanny.com. It is a service that provides license plates for strollers with a unique identifying number on them so if your nanny is out and about and does something bad to the baby or something praiseworthy, a passerby can get a message to the parent via the internet.

    It is a growing problem in urban environments as evidenced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck from “The View” describing the “bad nanny sighting” she experienced. Had the parents in that case had the HowsMyNanny.com license plate for their stroller, they would have learned of their nanny’s negligent behavior. It’s amazing that even with a national platform like “The View”, Ms. Hasselbeck was likely unsuccessful in her efforts to notify the parents.

    We have received a great deal of press including Good Morning America, CNN, The BBC and Fox News National. The more people who know about the site, the more likely a mom or dad is to receive a report if there is a problem. We are working hard to keep children safe and think that this is a step in the right direction.

    Thank you for your time.

  4. I cannot stand Elizabeth. I cannot wait for her child to be born so that she will be off the show. But I could certainly
    wait forever for her to return. She is an opinionated know it
    all republican and she fits right in with the Washington ins.Killing more of our soldiers every day. How can one person think they are so right ALL of the time ?

  5. Gosh, I don’t think she ever killed any soldiers, but gee whiz, if I ever find out I’m wrong about that I’ll take this endorsement down in a heartbeat.
