"The View" Hires Second Crazy Host to Speak to Nation's Morning TV-Watching Crazy

New "View" co-host Sherri Shepherd was hired, like, last week. Judging from the above clip, I'd say the show's producers, quite stupidly, neglected to ask the standard, "Do you think the world is flat?" question during the interview process. I'm as shocked at their negligence as you are.

It's bad enough they have one airhead on the show who still thinks Bush walks on water, but now they have one who doesn't believe in evolution and has "never thought about" whether the world is round or flat. I never thought I'd miss Star Jones.

One other interesting thing about this clip: the existence of God is never called into question, even as a hypothetical. There may be a resurgence of doubt in a Supreme Being in the country, manifesting itself in books by writers like Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and most recently Christopher Hitchens, but for the audience that "The View" is trying to reach these days, any hint of atheism is strictly verboten.

Anyway, sorry to post up another video clip (and an infuriating one at that, as opposed to a fun one like last time), but I've been working hard to get these stupid hands to draw good, and it's taken all of my time (at least all the time my brain functions on any given day). But so far the work has been coming out pretty well, and I've just got two more panels and I'll be just about done with the hard stuff. But perspective issues are making them a couple of tough nuts to crack. Perspective (along with anatomy, color, draftsmanship and character consistency) is my Achilles heel when it comes to drawrin'. But I'll keep you posted.

Whatcha drawrin', Crane? Some pictures? Hmmmm? I don't know what you do with your time these days. I used to be able to rely comfortably on you being at home watching tv, playing xbox and hammering away on some fictional novel -- or back then it was fictional, now we see you weren't telling a tall one.

Great video. What an idiot. I can't believe she tried to intelligently defend her reasons for not knowing if the world was flat. To be honest, when you said the producers neglected to ask the standard, "Do you think the world is flat?", I just assumed it was a hyperbole. Jesus!

What a vapid fucktard. Yeah, I said fucktard.

I love how she just sat there smiling. Yeah. Awesome that they put an idiot like that on TV as someone you can relate to, neato.

Don't be surprised if I end up using this quote in conversation for the rest of my life.
