    Behar: GOP Candidates “Pussies” For Not Doing “The View”

    joy.jpgOn Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher“, “View” host Joy Behar took Republican presidential candidates to task for refusing to appear on ABC’s daytime talk show, “The View.”

    “They’re all pro-war and they all talk gung-ho about they’re going to invade Iraq, but the Republican candidates are a bunch of pussies … because none of them will come on ‘The View’,” said Behar.

    “If they can’t face me, how are they going to face Osama bin Laden and the rest of them?” she asked.

    Behar noted that Democrats don’t have a problem appearing on the show. On Monday, Sen. Hillary Clinton will join Behar and her co-hosts, Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. Sens. Joseph Biden and Barack Obama have already made appearances.

    Behar had to admit that it felt liberating to be on the HBO show, where she is permitted to use more vulgar language. “I can’t say that in front of [Barbara Walters],” she said.

    Taking Out The Trash, 02.02.07

  • This is the one time of year commercials get some love.
  • C-SPAN reports that New York Times Baghdad correspondent John Burns confirms that he’ll remain in Iraq until mid-summer before moving to London to become bureau chief. Burns confirmed it during a taping of Q & A on Friday.
  • In his online chat today, Jonathan Weisman notes, “Reporters on television — and in on-line chats — put themselves into a perilous place. We are supposed to keep our opinions ourselves, and at the same time, be engaging and fun. That said Tom Ricks’ book Fiasco definitely takes a strong point of view, backed up extensively by facts, and no one has jumped
    on him.” (Hat Tip: Romenesko)

  • Julie Mason reports, “A suspcious package prompted the evacuation of the press corps’ temporary White House press room on Jackson Place this morning. A dog apparently sniffed out some explosives in a car parked nearby.” Don’t worry. It was a false alarm.
  • This weekend on C-SPAN2, Book TV will air an “Encore Booknotes” program with columnist Molly Ivins. In 1998, C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb interviewed Ivins about her latest book, “You Got to Dance With Them What Brung You: Politics in the Clinton Years” for the award-winning author interview series “Booknotes.” The interview airs on Saturday at 1:15 pm ET and Sunday at 9:30 a.m ET.
  • RockCritics.com’s Jason Gross picks his best music writing for 2006. Among the winners are the Washington Post’s Philip Kennicott and Hank Stuever. Somewhere, Josh du Lac quietly weeps…and not over concerns that his name isn’t as cool as Russ McCracken’s.
