Years ago Barbara Walters was one of the best. But she has made herself a parody in recent years by hosting The View. She shows that she can equivocate with the worst.
Today she defended Bill Maher for saying ex-Gov. Sarah Palin's son Trig is retarded. Even as she talked about her own sister's disabilities.
Her defense of Bill at Newsbusters
… Do I think it was unfortunate that he did it? Yes, I do. Do I, do I think he realized what it was? No, I don't. I mean, I don't think he intended it to be mean-spirited."
Oh, she is so nice. He certainly was mean spirited. She gives acid tongue Bill the benefit of ignoring what he has been saying every week for years. And what he said today. Goodbye, Barbara.
