My Love - Hate Relationship with The View

Posted by Mandy at 8:10 AM

There are few daytime TV shows that I watch religiously, but this is one of them. This show makes me so angry, yet so happy at the same time. Go figure!

To understand where I'm coming from you must first realize I'm born and raised in the south - which equals conservative. Can't help it.. it's in my blood line. Enter: Elisabeth. I love her. (the cute blonde on the left for those that aren't aware) She is my fellow right-winged warrior fighting a losing battle with everyone else.

Enter: the hate part of our relationship.

It seems that every other lady on this show is not only liberal but extremely loud. Poor Elisabeth.. she doesn't stand a chance. It's okay hun... I got yo' back! I'm yelling at the TV that Obama dropped the ball with this BP crap, too, I don't think Sarah Palin is the anti-Christ either, and gosh-darnit I agree that there's too much gluten in the world! I should totally be the next guest co-host. I 'think' I can yell louder than Joy... it's possible. I've had more experience with constructive yelling being a mom to 3.  I'm used to being in the arena of my beliefs all alone... so that's cool.

I 'think' that Sherry might be more in line with Elisabeth than with the others but since Joy and Whoopi are so loud I never get to hear her finish a thought... so who can tell. ("who can tell" in memory of Grandma Moss)

Watching this show likely raises my blood pressure... I'm always trying to discern one loud voice from the others during heated debates so I can know who will be the one to tap me into the fight. if only in my mind.

Even with always being upset that "my" point of view never seems to be expressed thoroughly during Hot Topics, I just cannot stop watching this show! Am I the only psycho person that is addicted to a show that sends me into hysteria?

I'll admit I can't handle this show (though to be honest if it were up to me, I'd have NO TV). That being said, I don't get caught up in it. :)

I can't watch that show for 5 minutes. ALL of them about give me a heart attack. It's too stressful! I have enough stress in my life without getting worked up about whatever they're talking about. The producers of that show seem to have a knack for finding hosts who are consistantly ennervating. Except Lisa Ling - I liked her. And Meredith Viera.

I also can't watch this show. Just can't do it.
