What an election year for female candidates. First an aide to Jerry Brown refers to Meg Whitman as a "whore," and now this.
On Tuesday, during a discussion of a recent Sharron Angle TV ad, which hits Majority Leader Harry Reid for supporting illegal immigrants, "The View's" Joy Behar said, "I'd like to see her do this ad in the South Bronx. 'Come here, bitch! Come to New York and do it!' "
Behar went on to add, "She's going to hell." She then used the b-word again to describe Angle, prompting Barbara Walters to say (perhaps jokingly): "If she says this one more time, I'm going to walk off the set."
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
