The Ed Show | January 07, 2011
>>> winstead. coming from minneapolis. already, lizz, we've got john boehner , he's got the gavel now. what do you make of all of this?
>> well, you know it's so exciting to watch how you know he takes the gavel and then the first thing that they do partially read the constitution. i don't know kind of a fun fact, ed. this is the first time that republicans have read anything on the floor that a lobbyist hasn't written for them, so it was historic.
>> what do you make of the crying? and then there's a study out there you know linking it to women's tears. what's happening here?
>> well, what's crazy, there's a couple of things. i think that we need to remember that the first three letters in sobbing, spell s.o.b. for what's that worth but i think that the crying is -- it's a little frightening to me how there was this study done that says women's tears lower the testosterone in men, and then there's another study done that's lesser known that says, john boehner 's tears actually lower the i.q. in the republican party .
>> yeah, ialdgree, with that.
>> did you read that, yeah.
>> all right now we've got all- american psycho -talker michele bachmann thinking about the oval office . skat do you think about that? you is, have you are considered at all of just changing the name of your show to "psycho talk"? i don't know --
>> the friday edition.
>> do it, it's crazy. but second of all, michele bachmann 's threat to run for president shouldn't scare anyone because she and her ilk believe that the rapture is coming on may 21st so she can say that she can run for anything. apparently i'm not, you're not, but she and her people are going to ascend into the heavens. the chosen and the rest of us will be left to pick through their stuff, i guess. i want her plaid jacket us.
>> want her plaid jackets.
>> i want her plaid jackets.
>> all right what do you make of michele bachmann and sarah palin being silent on antonin scalia 's comment that women don't have equal protection into the constitution?
>> well, first of all, ed, you're making assumption that they know who he is, they. and second of all -- see first of all. i don't think that they think that women have equal rights under the constitution either the way that they talk. i mean i really honestly think, they're not pro-choice. i look at them and i think eye don't know how they really get through the day as women. but they're stand by your mannish. and i think that michele bachmann believes in some sort of coveted marriage and she has like five kids and 87 foster children . and you know the family comes first. and so i don't know. i really think that they believe that -- when you believe in the rapture and when you believe that you are chosen by god, you aren't really paying any attention to any fact-based thing and when scalia says women don't have any rights and scalia also comes from some sort of crazy bible skewed philosophy, they just all run with the same wolfs.
>> all right, lizz winstead always a pleasure, looking forward to reading that book coming out. we'll talk about it later. great to have you with us.
