Elisabeth Hasselbeck Reads Her Bin Laden Children's Poem (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 4th 2011 5:55PM
Elisabeth HAsselbeck reads her bin Laden poem on 'The View'Elisabeth Hasselbeck has three children, none of them more than seven years old. She said today on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) that her daughter and two sons are too young to be asking her about the assassination of terrorist Osama Bin Laden, but the prospect of it made her nervous anyway. To deal with it, she wrote a poem, which she read on the air today.

It read thusly:

Osama Bin Laden was a very bad guy
He hurt many people, don't ask me why
We shot him in the head and now he is dead
Now close your eyes and go to bed


Caldecott Medal judges, take note. This could be the children's book of the year. You just need to find the right illustrator.
