Health-care shouting-match, er, discussion on 'The View' this morning
This morning on The View, Whoopi Goldberg tried to talk about the bad behavior of various elected officials during yesterday’s health-care debate. (She was bleeped for quoting various politicians’ use of racist and homophobic terms.) Then Elisabeth Hasselbeck twice repeated the phrase “bribed, bullied, and shut out” — her talking-point mantra to explain why the vote was such a narrow 219 to 212 vote and all hell broke loose:

Update to Annie Barrett’s PopWatch blog this morning about the “baby killer!” shout directed at Bart Stupak in the Senate: Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer is claiming credit for the yell, but claims he said, “It’s a baby-killer,” referring to the health-care bill, and was not saying that Stupak himself is a “baby-killer.” Well, that’s a relief, isn’t it?
