Next week on 'The View': Nicolaus Copernicus!

Sherri_lI had hoped that the lively and funny Sherri Shepherd would make The View into a must-watch show again, but I never imagined she would do so by displaying her complete scientific illiteracy, as she did yesterday when she said she doesn’t believe in evolution and doesn’t know whether or not the world is flat. (In her defense, Shepherd suggested science was less important to her than figuring out how to provide food for her child. Then, I suppose, she left the studio on her horse, galloped home to her cave, wrung the neck of a chicken, roasted the bird on a spit over an open fire, and fed it to her son with her fingers.) Elisabeth Hasselbeck must be breathing a sigh of relief, since she is officially no longer the biggest airhead on the panel.
