Both Whoopi and Amber Let Obama Down


Whoopi Goldberg has flip-flopped back and forth between Clinton and Obama, proving only that The View is one of the least intelligent shows on television to comment on public affairs.

What about the Obama Girl, Amber Lee Ettinger? Back in August I reported that, after becoming famous for her Obama videos, Amber was switching to Hillary. She returned to make a new video supporting Obama in time for Super Tuesday. When it came time to vote, who did she vote for? She didn’t vote at all.

On Tuesday night, City Room ran into Ms. Ettinger at an election-watching party in Greenwich Village and asked how things went at the polls.

“I didn’t get a chance to vote today because I’m not registered to vote in New York,” she said.

So where is Obama Girl registered to vote?

“New Jersey.”

Um, but didn’t New Jersey also hold a primary?

True. The problem, she explained, was that she was sick in New York City and was unable to get back across the Hudson River to the polls in Jersey City.

“I was in Arizona for the Super Bowl — every time I get in the airplane I get sick,” said Ms. Ettinger, who did manage to make it to the Svedka Fembot election returns party at Chinatown Brasserie.

Fortunately neither Whoopi or Amber are representative of those who are getting out to vote for Obama. Obama supporters in general are neither empty headed entertainers or members of cults.

    After the Rosie exit, where frankly, GOP robot, Elizabeth, had just been to an event with the twisted ones and felt confident, pushed to a confrontation. Sweet Elizabeth was given benefit of the doubt, because Rosie is always wrong.

    Enter, Whoopi, who used to be known as honest and cutting edge needing a paycheck. First, or near first, said she’s not really sure she’s a Democrat. She’s rethinking. Maybe deliberately non-controversal.

    They have influence and repeat every known talking point. A lot of pressure, I know, but good do a little research, or maybe their staff.

    Really good work, Ron, on behalf of this campaign season.

    OMG! Who would ever look to The View for anything more than vapid water-cooler girl talk? The View is a constant source of humor for Talk Soup for the ladies completely inane comments. As a woman, they make me feel ashamed to be female.
