Whoopi Defends Vick

Whoopi Goldberg kicked off her tenure as host of The View by defending Michael Vick and his dogfighting activities.

Goldberg said some activities are part of the unique to various regions of the USA.

“It’s like cockfighting in Puerto Rico,” she said. “There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country.”

Well, Whoopi, let’s check the scorecard…

1. Dog fighting is illegal in the USA, I am not sure cock fighting is illegal in Puerto Rico.
2. Vick endangered millions of dollars in salary and endorsement by participating in this illegal activity.
3. Dog fighting is not something unique to the South. Perhaps to certain elements in rural regions, but not to the entire region. Please don’t smear a region while trying to defend the indefensible.

Apparently Whoopi is more concerned with making a splash as host of The View than she is in making sense.

Good Luck with that.

  1. If Michael Vic was a white christian conservative she would call for his hanging. As for Michael, I can’t understand why anyone making so much money in endorsements would do anything illegal or legal that could put those endorsements in jeopardy. Anyone remember the flack that Rush took for his statements about Vic? It look s like he was right.
