We’ve always known that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is basically one of the most ignorant people on television, but you’ll absolutely die when you hear the poem that she wrote to explain the death of Osama Bin Laden to her children.
On this morning’s Hot Topics, the ladies were discussing whether or not it was appropriate for the government to release the photo of Bin Laden’s dead body so that we all could be sure that he’s actually dead. I’d like to get into what all of y’alls think about that in the comment section (I personally can live the rest of my life without seeing a photo of a dead monster,) but first I’d like to focus on how sad/scary little Elisabeth’s brain is.
Ready for the poem?
Osama Bin Laden was a very bad guy/He hurt many people, don’t ask me why/We shot him in the head and now he is dead/Now close your eyes and go to bed
She also added that she’d finish off the poem by telling her kids, “don’t ask Mommy any more questions!”
Hey, if anyone out there is confident that ignorance is going to be wiped out within the next few generations, don’t hold your breath. There are other moms out there who are just as bad at explaining the world to their children as Elisabeth, and it seems like we’ll be dealing with at least a percentage of the population being practically mentally retarded forever.
How about this, Elisabeth? If your kids are too young to have this issue explained to them, why not just keep them out of the loop on this one, even if they ask? Change the subject or tell that that you’ll explain it when they’re a bit older. Also, how about not using the phrase, “shot in the head,” around your toddlers? I dunno, seems like that would raise more questions than just about anything you could say to them. Also, how about sterilization?
Just throwing that one out there, sorry for all the questions.
