Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin

Elisabeth Hasselbeck stumps for Palin After several contentious mornings on “The View,” word spread that conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be leaving for her own show on Fox News. She later denied the reports on-air, but it came as no surprise when news broke that she would be campaigning for Palin in Florida. Talking to the crowd, she said: “Let me be honest, I was pretty much excited to be able to talk for a full five minutes without getting interrupted,” she said. And, at the very least, Hasselbeck was able to address the charges that Palin’s wardrobe was costing the campaign a pretty penny. “Instead of the issues, [the media are] focused, fixated, on her wardrobe.... This is deliberately sexist.” Palin took the stage a moment later to say: “Those clothes? They’re not my property. I’m not taking them with me. I’m back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska.
