Elisabeth Hasselbeck: "Gloria Steinem Is Pure Evil"

This morning on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck got very shrill over some comments that Gloria Steinem made during a speech this weekend and called her "evil, pure evil." Wanna know what Gloria said that was so offensive? In speaking about how she didn't believe that having a military background made one candidate more qualified than the other to be president she said, "I'm so grateful [Hillary] wasn't trained to kill anybody." Soooo evil! Elisabeth said that Gloria was making a "despicable mischaracterization" of the troops in Iraq as being trained to kill (um, except that they are) and that they should be respected since they are over there "protecting [Gloria's] freedom to run her mouth." Oh, the irony! So Gloria should shut up because someone is fighting for her freedom of speech? What?! Clip above.

"I'm stupid, completely stupid!" said Elisabeth Hasselback.
