Behar Thinks Biden Needs Caffeine

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden appeared on a special “Red, White & View” episode of ABC’s “The View” this morning to promote their new initiative in support of military families, Joining Forces.

Though the ladies were there for a purpose, co-host Joy Behar couldn’t resist cracking a joke to Dr. Biden: “Have you been giving [Joe] decaf?” The Second Lady took the ribbing well and laughed it off.

Behar was referring to the Veep’s nap during President Obama‘s speech at GWU last Wednesday.

Bill Press Promises No ‘Toxic Talk’ on Behar Tonight

Lefty radio host Bill Press, whose coming out with a new book, Toxic Talk, will appear on the Joy Behar show on HLN tonight at 9 p.m. (EST).

The book deals with talk show hosts people love to hate. This is the radio host’s first time on Behar’s show and “I’m excited,” he says, noting that he’ll be in Manhattan for the show.

To be sure, Press will appear alongside an interesting lineup. Other guests on Behar tonight include Will Phillips, a 10-year-old who won’t say the Pledge of Allegiance until gay people gain equality, and right-wing pundit Ann Coulter.

When asked how he’d mix with Coulter, Press assured there would be no attacks or animosity. “Ann Coulter – born with a meat cleaver for a tongue,” Press wrote to FishbowlDC. “Actually we’re friends. Can’t wait to see her defend Rand Paul. But, I promise, no matter how outrageous she gets, no ‘toxic talk’ from me!”

> Update: Press is scheduled to also appear on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” tonight. The show airs at 6 p.m.(EST).


WHCD: Blindsided by CNN’s Guest List


With only a few days until the WHCD and no published guest list, we thought CNN might be scrambling to fill their seats…but that’s not the case at all.

FishbowlDC was “blindsided” by the theme and diversity of CNN’s guest list. Joining the Cable News Network is the real Tuohy family portrayed in “The Blindside” (Leigh Anne, Sean and Collins) and Quinton Aaron (played Michael Oher in “The Blindside”).

Additionally, CNN snagged Ashley Judd, Dennis Quaid and the stars of the HBO’s “The Pacific,” Jon Seda and James Badge Dale. In addition to Washington-based CNN talent, Joy Behar, Sanjay Gupta and Larry King will all be in town for the dinner.

Joy Behar Doesn’t Give a F–k about Beck and Resents Sen. McCain

Joy-Behar.jpg That Joy Behar doesn’t hold anything back.

“Glenn Beck I don’t hate you I don’t give a flying f–k about you,” the talk show maven said on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno Tuesday night about the FNC host, explaining she has been on Beck’s worst person’s list. Behar has her own talk show on HLN and appears daily on ABC’s “The View”.

Behar also went off on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for turning down an invitation to come on “The View” after he appeared on the show during the election (funny, he didn’t like dealing with her campaign critiques). “He went back to Vietnam and forgave them,” she said of his Prisoner-of-War experience, “but he will not come back on The View.”

Behar said FNC’s Sarah Palin also won’t come on her show. “She says I was way too hard on her,” Behar told Leno.

The LAT’s “Top of the Ticket” blog kindly alerted us to Behar’s performance early on in the evening. Read the post and watch the must-see video here.

Rich Lowry: The FishbowlDC Interview

Say hello to Rich Lowry- don’t call him Richard- co-author of “Banqo’s Ghost” with Keith Korman.

In Lowry’s own words the basic plot: “Left-wing journalist sent on a rogue CIA mission to Iran to assassinate Iran’s top nuclear scientist; mayhem ensues. Some people will have fun arguing whether one character, the left-wing media-savvy editrix Josephine von Hildebrand, is more like Katrina vanden Heuvel or Arianna Huffington. Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Joy Behar, Larry King, et. al make appearances by name.”

“Banquo’s Ghosts” is on bookshelves now.

What does your morning reading list include?
I’m old school. I still get five newspapers delivered at home, NY Times, Washington Post, New York Post, Wall Street Journal and USA Today: I read the New York Post first (some of us at NR call it “the newspaper of record”). Online, I first turn to NRO, RealClearPolitics, and Drudge.

What single person has played the biggest role or has had the biggest influence on your career? Easy- Bill Buckley.

How many suits do you own? Just enough to get by, basically two, one grey, one dark blue. Somehow I’ve also accumulated two summer suits, which I’ll wear once or twice a year.

What is the name of your cell phone ring? I have a rotation of “Daughter” by Pearl Jam, “All the Small Things,” by Blink 182 and “Everybody” by the Blues Brothers (Remember that scene in the movie? “We’re so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight, and we would especially like to welcome all representatives of the Illinois law enforcement community who have chosen to join us in the Palace hotel ballroom at this time”). And, finally, “Les voici! Voici la quadrille” for my girlfriend’s calls, since she’s an opera fan.

How many emails do you receive a day? How many do you answer? I’m not sure. A lot. And I don’t answer enough. If anyone has brilliant ideas for e-mail management, please let me know.

Where do you power-lunch? Starbucks.

What’s your favorite or go-to drink? Vodka tonic.

Who is your favorite active journalist? Charles Krauthammer. Marry an incredibly incisive intellect with fearsome powers of expression, and you get Charles. As they say in sports, he’s scary good.

What subject line in an email grabs your attention? I hate to say it, but: “Congratulations.” The one that grabs me least: “Dear Richard.” If it starts that way, I’m 100% sure that it’s from a p.r. person who got my name from some list since no one who knows me calls me Richard.

What section of the Sunday Washington Post do you read first? Op-ed pages.

If you ran a doctor’s office or a bank, what cable news station would you have on in your waiting room or lobby? Fox News, except during Yankee day games, when it would be the YES network.

Lowry’s FBDC Interview continued after the jump…

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.
