Sherri Shepherd needs to go away now

Remind me again: why is Sherri Shepherd still on TV?

She has to be the most ignorant person on a major TV show. Remember when she wasn't sure if the Earth were flat? She has tied this record for profound goofiness by now claiming that nothing "predated Christians".


Yeah, you read that right. You can watch the video, until YouTube yanks it.

Seriously, I understand how dumbed down television can be, but this is really beyond the pale. Every time she's on the camera, they should have a title underneath her that says "The opinions expressed by Ms. Shepherd do not reflect reality in any way whatsoever." In the meantime, can we get someone to explain to her what "B.C." means?
