On the Thursday, June 2 episode of “The View,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck gets into it about Sarah Palin (for whom Hasselbeck campaigned in 2008 when Palin was running with Senator McCain). Hasselbeck argues that Palin is dominating the headlines with her bus tour (and reinterpretations of Paul Revere’s ride).

“If I had termites in my house, I’d get someone in there who could deal with it. Mitt Romney, right now, his specialty is the economy. I’d have him in there. Here’s why we’re not hearing it – because Sarah Palin’s on a bus and right now she’s manipulating, in terms of media attention,” says Hasselbeck.

What do you think, Pop2it readers? Is Palin pulling all the attention on herself and away from perhaps more serious candidates for the Republican presidential nomination?
