Speaking of Michael Vick ...



Whoopi Goldberg showed up on The View today, and the first thing she did was open her yap to defend Michael Vick (see Young Jeezy below). Goldberg said that "from where he comes from" in the South, dogfighting isn't that unusual.

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

Co-host Joy Behar was not amused.

"How about dog torture and dog murdering?" Behar asked. Goldberg answered that for many people, dogs are sport, and Vick apparently didn't realize what he had been doing was wrong and illegal.

"I just thought it was interesting, because it seemed like a light went off in his head when he realized this was something that the entire country didn't appreciate," she said.

And while most viewers were no doubt horrified by this yammering, Barbara Walters probably laughed all the way to the bank.
