Melissa Etheridge visited The View yesterday – to promote her new CD – and took time to provide a history lesson to Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
Speaking about California’s Proposition 8, Melissa explained the protections built into the Constitution by the U.S. founding fathers: “Actually one of the things that was difficult about this was that – Thomas Jefferson wrote a paper [saying] the rights of the minority should never be voted on by the majority. That should never happen.”
The notoriously naive Hasselbeck basically said she believes that the majority should vote on the rights of the minority, but – before Etheridge had chance to respond – Sherri Shepard interrupted and said, “We wanted to talk about your CD.”
Melissa Etheridge’s Holiday CD, called A New Thought For Christmas, includes Blue Christmas, O Night Divine, and Christmas in America.
