Sharron Angle Sends Joy Behar Flowers -- for Fundraising Boost

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."

Our New Approach to Comments

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Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.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.

another observation of her stupidity. If Behar is truly agnostic there really isn't a hell is there? This is just another case of mentally ill Hollywood types using their lame fame to sway weak minds to believe this garbage.

I didn't care for Joy Behar's outburst, but I supported her intention to cast serious doubts about her ability to govern. Her measures are far to extreme and dangerous. Moreover, her line of thinking (sic) could have a very profound effect on most American's. Also, the term "illegal aliens," as she (Sharron Angle) puts it is incorrect. The correct term is "illegal immigrants." Personally, I think a lot of Nevadans are being led down the prim rose path, and they aren't looking at all of the good things a majority leader can do for his or her state. Most people, in a life time, never get this opportunity to have a majority leader from their state...

Joy Behar is a joke. If anyone other than an extreme left wing zealot had said this, it would be front page news in the New York Times. Don't worry, we will be the ones laughing next Wednesday morning. Ms. Behar will be in mourning.

I don't care one bit for Ms. Angle, but there are other ways to get your point of view without using names that should not be used to describe a woman - no matter who or what she is. In a time when our children are dying because of bullying, the women of the view use foul language to set an example…I’ve had it, what is so difficult of expressing yourself with civility??? Why does The View have to call another woman a bitch??? There is absolutely no excuse for this.

Why is Joy Behar still allowed to be on the air? This is the most vile and vicious individual I have ever seen on TV. The amzing thing is that she gets away with using a national program to spew her venom. Juan williams was fired for much less. If you are a liberal, you can say or do anything, but if you are anything resembling a conservative, Ms. Behar will attack. It is her kind of one-sided attitude that is widening the divide in this country

FYI, young3, Joy Behar was severely chastised by Barbara Walters so her actions, however disappointing they were, didn't go unnoticed. Like some of the other viewers here, I'm not a Sharron Angle fan either, but Joy Behar's actions were in very bad taste.
