Hasselbeck mum on outspoken sister-in-law

Some of you might have caught Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O'Donnell's little verbal battle the other day on The View.

(Needless to say, I certainly hope you didn't catch it live. But I digress.)

Somebody out at Seahawks headquarters asked quarterback Matt Hasselbeck -- Elisabeth's brother-in-law by marriage to his brother, Tim -- what he thought of the whole dust up. And, like a good brother-in-law, he refused to comment on his family's dirty laundry, according to The News Tribune:

The Seahawks’ quarterback is generally quick with a retort, but not Monday. Asked about the on-air spat featuring sister-in-law Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O’Donnell, he fell unusually silent.

“Strong show,” he deadpanned. “It’s been on for 10 years. I think they’re looking forward to many more years on the air.”
That would be no comment, I think.

And if you haven't seen it, here you go. It's about 10 minutes long, and you have to see the whole 10 minutes to really get a feel for it, but man -- it's kind of uncomfortable to watch.

If you're a man, you can add this to the list of reasons you are very glad you're not a woman.

I love the split screen. Can't possibly miss one second of watching either of their heads nearly pop like a freaking zit.

It amazes me that there are still people out there who 1) Back the president blindly and fully without even an iota of doubt about his good intentions to bring democracy, peace and love to Iraq and the rest of God's green earth, and 2) Can't see a distinction between supporting the troops and supporting a war.

It's even more unfortunate that the only modicum of common sense, critical thought and necessary dissent to see the light of day at the View (Rosie O'Donell) is now gone. I would highly, highly doubt that the general viewership of that show had any clue about most of what Joy Behar was saying ("Alberto who?") and there's likely even less of a chance that any of them agree with big, fat, lesbian Rosie's opinion rather than cute, blonde, Christian Elizabeth's. And I'll bet you a million bucks they can't even tell you why.

Ugh. I bet their family gatherings are fun.
