"The View" lines up Hot Blonde Conservative Hasselbeck fill-ins

ABC's "The View" has started lining up Hot Blonde Conservatives to fill in for the show's regular HBC, Elisabeth Hasselbeck when the daytime talker returns on Sept. 8.

First up: John McCain's daughter Meghan.

"Yes, the rumors are true, I will be guest hosting 'The View' while Elisabeth is on maternity leave. I couldn't be more honored or excited!!!!!" McCain gushed on twitter, as McCainBlogette. McCain also blogs for The Daily Beast - presumably with less spewing of punctuation.

It's unclear how long McCain will guest-host. "The View" says she's starting Sept. 9 and guest hosting through Sept. 11.

Also signed on: former Fox News Channel's E.D. Hill, who takes over on Sept. 23 and 24.

Hasselbeck gave birth to her third child on Aug. 9 and is scheduled to return to work in October.
Both McCain and Hill are repeat guest hosts.

Last time McCain guest-hosted, "The VIew" reminds us, she made headlines for saying, "It's very unprecedented for someone like Karl Rove or Dick Cheney to be criticizing the president."

It was like she was a TV-news virgin or something.

"You had your eight years, go away," she added for good measure.

You could replace Hasselbeck with a baked potato and it would be an improvement.

Is there cheese on the baked potato?
