Oh, Spectators, how I’ve missed you! But I’m back from Disney World and ready to inform you, once again.
While I was gone, The View, apparently, tackled the important issues surrounding last week’s Presidential debate, such as the face Carly Fiorina makes when she’s getting serious about an issue. Now, I don’t feel bad for not having seen the clip because I’m hardly the only person who doesn’t watch The View on a regular basis (their audience is limited to people in dentists chairs who can’t change the channel on the in-room television because they’re dosed up on Novacaine, and homebound invalids without cable), but it seems the hosts, including the ever-intelligent Joy Behar, piled on Fiorina, calling her “demented”-looking and comparing her face to a “Halloween mask” as they cackled around their coffee table.
The always-unflappable Fiorina responded, not by chastizing The View‘s resident coven for their evident bias (Whoopi Goldberg, the senior member of the clan, stood up for comedian Michelle Collins after she was criticized for using the word “demented” by another guest co-host, even), but by taking them to task for their cowardice and willingness to make fun of another woman’s looks behind her back, but too chicken to debate her on policy while she’s in the room.
The View has booked GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina for Friday’s broadcast, to continue the discussion as to whether Fiorina’s face looked “demented” and Halloween-mask-esque during the CNBC debate.
“None of these liberal women scare me,” Fiorina this morning told Fox News Channel, beating The View to the punch with news she’d been booked on the ABC News program.
“My message to the ladies of The View is ‘Man up’,” Fiorina told Fox News. “If you want to debate me on F3policies…man up and debate me on them. But don’t sink to talking about my face.”
Hilariously, in their announcement, The View co-hosts took credit for “help[ing] to raise [Fiorina’s] profile,” and criticized her for failing to consider their barb about her looks as an “observation,” rather than the cutting example of a Sweet Valley High storyline it was. Never defeated (or, for that matter, self-aware), the hosts went on to point out that Republicans are always welcome at their table, in theory.
Somehow, I doubt Carly feels that appearing on The View‘s daytime chat-fest was as responsible for raising her profile and creating her front-runner status among her fellow potential nominees as she feels things like her rousing debate performances, on-point television interviews, well-oiled campaign and pointed speeches have been. After all, the women supporting Carly aren’t the type to take their cues on, well, anything, from four women huddled around hot coffee talking favorably about things like culottes.
