No need to take my word for it. Here she is:
But you know, as a minister, I am just so glad that Sherri Shepherd offered to "pray" for Ms. Angle. Wow, isn't that just so, um, kind, of Ms. Shepherd? It was at that point that Joy Behar suggested Angle could go to hell.
Amy Siskind of The New Agenda, in an interview with The Daily Caller, has called for Joy Behar to apologize not just to Ms. Angle, which she most definitely NEEDS to do, but to women in general, for using such sexist language.
Ms. Siskind was joined in that call by Sonja Eddings Brown of The Kitchen Cabinet, a more conservative organization, in the same Daily Caller piece:
“We thought Joy Behar was a classier act than this,” Brown wrote in an e-mail to TheDC. “What is it that makes conservative women, who work inside and outside of the home, such a threat to liberal women like Joy? What has Sharron Angle done to deserve being described so profanely by Ms. Behar?”
Excellent question. Why is someone like Angle such a threat to Behar? Or Sarah Palin? Rarely are their actual political stances mentioned when these belittling comments are made. I guess the fact that they are conservative is justification enough.
Well, come to think of it, apparently Hillary Clinton must be conservative, too, considering the comments made about her by women like Randi Rhodes (remember that horrible diatribe Rhodes went on at an Obama fundraiser?).
Sigh. I swear, women are our own worst enemies sometimes, aren't we?
Bottom line, Behar was way out of line. That kind of language is unacceptable, or should be. Amy Siskind said it all in the DC interview:
“She should be ashamed of herself. She truly should…And if she cannot apologize I think The View should really consider whether she is appropriate for that kind of show,” Siskind concluded. (Click HERE to read the rest.)
Amen to that, Ms. Siskind. Behar should be ashamed. And "The View" might want to take a step back, look at Ms. Behar's behavior of late, and see if she is the kind of person they want to keep employing on a show primarily for women.
One last thing, speaking of women. Guess who are starting to take another look at Obama and changing their minds? Yep. Women. It is our prerogative to change our minds after all, isn't it? Ahem. My guess is that many women bought his smooth talk about how he was different from everyone else, and would never threat them the way other politicians do (you should be hearing a little Barry White in the background). They believed him when he said he would bring change, would bring them some hope and chocolates. But now? Not so much. They've heard this story before and are seeing that with Obama, the only change is with those who voted for him the first (and only) time and the box they check on their ballots this time around...
UPDATE: Well, Joy Behar apologized for calling Sharron Angle a "bitch," if you can call it that:
Wow. Some apology. If Behar wants to take umbrage with her on specifics, that's fine. Do that. But what she did I still contend was sexist. And her apology was not much of one...
