I don't watch The View - although, from what I've learned it's a great show - but I did get to see a clip of Whoopi Goldberg's debut – in case you weren't aware, she's taking Rosie O'Donnell's place in the "comedian who used to overcome her looks with a crowd-friendly persona turned militant activist who everyone hates" role. Her first course of action? Defending wearied dog killer Michael Vick. When you break it down, Whoops isn't telling us anything Jamie Foxxhasn't already touched on, but she brings a new angle into it: "eating kitty." (stop laughing)
Goldberg compares Vick's "antics" to people in China eating cats and dogs, saying, "You know, from his background, this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," i.e. the deep south, and that "you and I would be really pissed if somebody at kitty." (stop laughing)
Unfortunately, while you can pick up fried cat in the drive through in China, you're not going to walk down a street in broad daylight anywhere in the south, smiling and waving at the nice gentlemen throwing money down on the dogs. Because, you see, they're hiding. From the police. And PETA.
Culture or not, Vick got caught doing something illegal. He's paying the price for it. C'est la vie.
I just wish these talk show bitches would shut up and start leaving social commentary to our society's true humanitarians.
