Another example of why Elisabeth Hasselbeck sucks as the "conservative voice" of "The Voice". Hasselbeck doesn't know how to fight off standard liberal talking points. de Rossi's no great intellect. Her little speech on why gays should be "married" comes straight from the liberal handbook: mention "civil rights", equate yourself with the Blacks (in this case referring to yourself as a "minority"), yada, yada, yada. Hasselbeck could've made any of several points to combat de Rossi's typical, leftist spiel. She could've mentioned that whether you like the end result or not, the passage of Prop 8 spoke for our countries most Democratic process: the electorate voted on it. Hasselbeck could've also mentioned that 31 states have said no to "gay marriage". She could've contradicted de Rossi's asinine comment that it isn't about the word "marriage" (as opposed to "rights") by mentioning how civil unions have given gays the same "rights" as married couples in all states where its been passed. Granted its hard to take anything on "The View" seriously, but when you're the lone "conservative voice" on any popular TV show, it just looks extra bad when you fail to do your homework and look unprepared when taking on liberals. Any wonder Hasselbeck gets so much grief from the Right.
