  1. "The View" Week Of 9/10/2018

    I remember one time she totally lost it on the air about her mom. She said sometimes the grief just sneaks up on you with no notice. I still had my parents then, and I remember it being one of the moments I really learned something from Whoopi. It was also one of the times I thought we saw the real Whoopi beneath the "EGOT" persona.

    I wonder if they are putting all these liberals on now, before Meghan gets back and acts ugly toward them (I swear, I'm still not over how she treated Dick Durbin and may never be!). Abby may be Meghan Lite politically, but she's polite.
  3. "The View" Week Of 9/10/2018

    After her eulogy, which I thought was brave and necessary (although I'm still not a Meghan fan!), her approval rating is sky-high. Most people don't know the Meghan we saw for 80% of a season on The View. There was even talk about her filling in the rest of Sen. McCain's term. You better bet that The View is going to promote the hell out of her return. We won't be able to miss the run-up. For that reason, I think that it's not imminent, or they'd be saying "Meghan will be back next week," etc.

    On a personal level, I'm glad she's not back because she detracts from the show. Having the idiot one-two punch of Meghan and Abby will probably make me stop watching. One I can handle... two will be unbearable. We don't know how Meghan feels about extended time off. Maybe she feels entitled to it; maybe she is bursting with gratitude. As I've said before here, I was absolutely devastated and catatonic after losing my mom. I stayed in bed for two weeks without leaving it, and didn't return to work for months. I was physically incapable. I'm self-employed, so it put me in a huge financial hole that I'm still digging out of. I realize that I am lucky because I was not fired, although I surely would have been had I not been self-employed. Maybe instead of resenting Meghan getting the time off she needs to recover, we should resent a system that expects us to finish grieving in three days.

    I like both Stormy and Avenatti. They seem to be telling the truth, they're both balls-out personalities, and if the Trump presidency folds, I think it will be in large part due to having the two of them twist the lock on Pandora's box of lies and unsavory revelations. Abby seems very PC, afraid of having a bold opinion, and that cannot be said about Stormy and her aggressive attorney. They are my kind of people!

    Very much like Meghan. At least Ana and Tara bring some fun to the table with their conservatism.
  7. "The View" Week Of 9/10/2018

    It's very serious so far. It's not a coffee klatch anymore. Abby adds nothing, and the absence of Sara is being really felt. I'm sure the light-hearted fun that Meghan always brings will return with her. </sarcasm>
  8. "The View" Week Of 9/10/2018

    I was my mom's caretaker, and I was completely devastated when she died. I literally stayed in bed unable to move for two weeks after the funeral, and I can barely remember anything about the year after she died. I'm lucky I was able to not have the pressure to return to work (I'm self-employed, and my company went on the back burner when I had to take care of Mom full-time). I don't like Meghan, but I think she had the same close relationship with her dad that I had with my mom. She has no monetary concerns, so I hope she takes as long as she needs. (EvilCita hopes she needs a long, LONG time.... like forever.)

    I'm looking forward to the guests (except Norm Macdonald). Between Omarosa, Avenatti, Stormy Daniels, and Michael Moore, it's pretty much Trump's Nightmare Week.
  10. "The View" Week Of 9/3/2018

    It's early days, and I'm not ready for a final judgment on Abby, but I am irked that when she is proven to be wrong, she doesn't say it. She kind of nods... and she deflects. "I feel like I don't have a party anymore, and Democrats feel the same way...." No, two Democrats sitting right there told you that was not correct. "Half the people in the country voted for Trump..." No, Sunny made sure it was said out loud that Hillary got more votes, and more than half the eligible voters stayed home. No acknowledgment from Abby that she was wrong. Polished, yes. I can't get the word "sneaky" out of my mind, too. Don't most people, when corrected on facts, say, "Oh, you're right" or "Sorry, that was incorrect" or "I misspoke" or "I didn't know that!"? (I do!)
  11. "The View" Week Of 9/3/2018

    I follow Ana on Twitter, and Tuesday was the last day of her overseas vacation. I agree, Tuesday's show had no sparks. Abby, I think, is just a more polished version of Meghan. She won't learn, she won't waver, she won't be passionate, she's there to sell her POV. She will probably make her points better and more persuasively than Meghan, but yesterday definitely felt more like Sunday morning news shows than The View. And today, she tried to counter criticism of Americans being frightened by what is going on these days by saying a lie very matter-of-factly, "Half the people in the country voted for him." Thankfully Joy and Whoopi jumped on that. Besides it being factually inaccurate, it was a deflection. Sly, that Abby. But -- OMAROSA IS GOING TO BE ON NEXT MONDAY! Omarosa, who was so nasty her last time at The View! She was so dismissive of the liberal panelists. Going to be interesting to see if they remind her of that previous appearance.

    I think people like Abby and Meghan will listen to what he has to say, and completely go back to their original assertion that he is disrespecting the military and the flag. There is no "gray" in their worldview. It's hard to think outside the box they love, dammit!
  13. "The View" Week Of 9/3/2018

    The world is Meghan's bestie, according to her.
  14. "The View" Week Of 9/3/2018

    If they feel compelled to have someone branded "The Conservative," my fantasy is for Meghan to go join E! or RHOAZ and follow her passion. I can stand Abby, but not Abby and Meghan on the same panel.
  15. Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I am so awed by Meghan simultaneously falling apart and going full steam ahead during her eulogy for her father. I am a crier, like she is, but I could not have done what she did. I wrote my mom's eulogy, but my stepbrother read it during the service. There was no way I could have muscled through it. I admire Meghan for being able to do that. Did anyone else notice that near the end, she reached up to stroke her hair, as she does so often on the show? I've suspected, and now I'm convinced, it's a self-soothing mechanism for her. Since her hair was pulled back (good thinking!), she played with her earring for a moment instead. In his farewell essay, Sen. McCain decried political tribalism. I so hope that's a word that has been stricken from Meghan's View vocabulary.
