I'm Amazed She Remembers to Breathe

Granted, I've never watched The View, but it's hard to avoid the occasional torrents of stupid that pour forth from the show. The newest hostess, Sherri Shepherd, made a big splash when she couldn't commit to a conclusion that the world is round. Apparently eager to prove that such stupidity wasn't a fluke, she released this doozy yesterday:



That's right- nothing in history came before Christians. Putting aside the fact that great empires rose and fell before Jesus was even a gleam in somebody's eye, wasn't Jesus a Jew? Didn't he allegedly fulfill a bunch of prophecies set forth in the Old Testament? In fact, isn't the book about Jesus called the New Testament? You'd think that would mean something, even to someone as dense as Shepherd.

That show is an abomination! I have watched it about a dozen times so I feel like I can say that with full knowledge.

The only thing that comes to mind that is immediately worse and more insipid ... and that everyone who I've ever asked has agreed about ... is the Tyra Banks Show. I've seen that travesty 3 times ... which is 2 too many ... and I can't think of a clearer example of empty head, open mouth.

Well, "The View" or no "The View," this Jew is having himself an awesome Hanukkah this week!

Wow. I can't even come up with a response, I'm that 'wow' over it.

And, yes, Tyra do suck too.
