      Staying home with her babies?

      • Yes.

        • Alternate theories already popping up: 1. IT’s really a health problem. B. She’ll be back on The View by February.

          • Cecelia

            Rather it be for her kids, but B. isn’t bad.

            Love this G.K. Chesterton piece about children (who we must be like if we are to please God):

            “Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”

          Male or female, do it if you can.

  • Larry Kelly

    Former “cable news funny man” is flopping as Letterman replacement:
    I never even sampled his show. Despise the guy since his hosting of a GWB era White House Correspondents Dinner.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      His politics aside, he is simply creepy.

      • gc

        reminds me of Nissan car ad talent that creeped everyone out.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          He’s even worse than “Pat” in the Nissan commercials. Colbert takes creepy to a whole new level.

    • He’s the same ideological blowhard that he was at The Colbert Report. The only difference is he’s not in character.

    • Grandpa D

      I rarely watched “The Colbert Report” (too late at night for me); mostly saw clips on the web. Sometimes very funny. But one year I started to watch “A Colbert Christmas Special”. After it got outright sacrilegious I tuned out and haven’t watched Colbert since.

  • Saintsfan720

    My choice for Elisabeth’s replacement would be Alyson Camerotta. But, since that is likely not going to happen, has to be Anna Kooiman’s to lose.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Lily Langtry is the only logical choice. And I am unanimous in that.

      • GATXER

        “unanimous in that” Gee I thought I was the only person to say that thanks to are you being served?.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Yes, Mrs. Slocombe is where I got it from.

  • Cecelia

    The news media couldn’t get within a half mile of Hillary all year. Now they’re pow wowing?

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Paleface in a pantsuit speak with forked tongue.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 Network execs meet
    4 go weekly
    3 Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving
    2 statement
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Missing Anna.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Plagiarism can also lead to the Vice Presidency.

  • Michael T

    Sorry folks, but I am skeptical of the Fox News Poll (on The O’Reilly Factor) showing Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton 46-41 head-to-head.

    In the last 14 national polls there have been only two that showed Trump beating Clinton — and they were both Fox News Polls.

    Are they an outlier? Sure looks like a possibility.

    • GATXER

      Id believe almost anything this year…….the last Quinnipiac University poll had all the GOP beating her except Trump and even that was within the MOE.

      While im supporting Bernie my roommate registered to vote for the first time just so he can vote for Trump.

      2016 maybe the strangest year in a long time.

      Of course polls wont matter because the disgraced twitter stooges have already stated that none of the GOP’s will ever be president in between lying about Fox News.

      Im glad to be a news junkie this year…..oh for people who care about polls here is a great site for polls.

    There’s no question it should be Ainsley.
    She’s the right age, she has the most experience, she can do hard news and the light stuff, she has the perfect personality for a morning show and she now is a new mom, which can’t be underestimated as a factor in the Fox target audience. The question is if she will want it since she is very proud of F&FF but there’s no doubt Ainsley is the best candidate.
