God, I hope not! I cringe every time she opens her mouth on “The View.”

She was however, incredibly “honored” to introduce Gov. Sarah Palin on Sunday at a Republican rally in Florida.

But she was even more excited about  being able to “talk for a full five minutes without being interrupted,” by Joy or Whoopi.

She talked about Palin’s women’s rights views: equal pay for equal work, putting an end to honor killings, aiding women exploited in the sex trade and stopping the sanctioning of the abortion of unborn daughters in other countries.

She decried the fact that “they” are “fixated on her wardrobe,” calling it a double standard and deliberately sexist. But then she turned to Palin and remarked admiringly that the governor “sure is a woman who knows how to dress,” which got some rather sexist whoops, hollers and whistles from the audience.

Hasselbeck added:  “I’m most impressed by her accessories, you know, like the flag pin she wears in honor of her son and our military — men and women — fighting abroad.  And they fight for our every right to be here today.”

Oh, Ok
