Elizabeth Hasselbeck Finds a Most Effective Way to Shut Up Joy Behar

I don’t watch The View, mostly because it’s like being trapped inside the head of a dopey left-coast schizophrenic with a hormonal imbalance — with commercials — but now and then there are some gems I run across from that show. This is one of them.
