Joy Behar didn't have nice things to say about Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle on "The View" Tuesday, and that's apparently just fine with the Tea Party favorite.
Behar told viewers Wednesday that she had received flowers from Angle, who included a note saying, "Joy, raised $150,000 online yesterday. Thanks for your help."
Behar, not one to hold her tongue when it comes to politics (or anything else), may have fanned the flames of Angle's support even more by saying the flowers were picked by illegal immigrants, and "they're not voting for you, bitch."
Show founder Barbara Walters admonished her co-host: "You were so offensive to many people that they will raise money to whomever you disapprove of."
She was referring to Tuesday's discussion of a recent Angle TV ad that hits incumbent Sen. Harry Reid for supporting illegal immigrants. Behar had said, "I'd like to see her do this ad in the South Bronx. 'Come here, bitch! Come to New York and do it!' " She added that Angle is "going to hell."
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Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
