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.

WaPo Has Power in Alaska

WaPo is so powerful that apparently there is more than one Washington Post, at least according to The AlaskaStandard.com. In a story released this morning, “The Washington Posts” and ABC have released a poll that doesn’t bode well for FNC contributor Sarah Palin.

The The Alaska Standard story bears this painfully bold headline:

It is official – The political career of Sarah Palin has come to an end

The lead:
It appears Sarah Palin’s chances of winning the White House are waning. The Washington Posts reports a new ABC News poll shows the political standing of Palin has deteriorated significantly.

“Let’s talk about the fact that you have Sarah Palin‘s weekend wardrobe.”

Clinton Kelly on TLC’s “What Not To Wear” harshly tells “Lynn”, a woman he and Stacy London are about to make over that her wardrobe needs help. Lynn takes the critique well. Her most frequently used expression is “freakin’ hot.”

Note to readers: We’ll be publishing light over the long holiday weekend, but we’ll be back in full swing on Tuesday. Enjoy the weekend.

Fishbowl5 With Treacher: Knee to Know

DCTRAWLERohyeah.jpg Sean Medlock (AKA “Jim Treacher”), blogger for the Daily Caller is typically a well-humored guy and says it is what’s helping him cope since being struck by an SUV driven by a State Department security agent. That male employee was not cited, nor provided his information. Instead, Treacher was cited with what he calls a “fact deficient” jaywalking citation in the ER. Treacher was released from the hospital Tuesday after knee surgery that resulted in a pulmonary embolism. He’s cutting down on the ice skating and kick-boxing and is staying in an “undisclosed hotel location”. More seriously, he will have to use crutches and for longer voyages, a wheelchair.

1. How are you feeling since being released from the hospital Tuesday? Surprisingly not-awful. The knee still hurts, but most of the time when it’s still, it’s more of a constant burning sensation than a sharp pain. Dr. Wiesel and Dr. Remington and everybody else at Georgetown University Hospital did a great job of getting me back on my feet. Well, foot. I’m going to be doing physical therapy for the broken knee, which is already helping, and taking blood thinners for the pulmonary embolism that resulted from the knee injury and surgery. They’re going to be monitoring that at least once a week. So there’s still a lot of work to do, but I’m more than willing to do it. As for who’s going to pay for it all…

2. Can you walk around and are you on crutches? Is your boss, Tucker Carlson, carrying your bag and getting you food? Crutches, which I’m trying to master. I can’t put full weight on my left foot for at least three months. I’ve also got a wheelchair, in the unfortunate event that I need to go outside. No plans to do that anytime soon. Tucker’s been busy this week trying to find out who hit me and how the whole thing went down. He and Neil Patel and Moira Bagley and Laura Banos stayed in the ER with me all Wednesday night last week. And everybody at the Daily Caller has been terrific. Almost everybody I’ve talked to has been great, actually. What was the question? I’m on painkillers because a State Dept. security agent named Mike McGuinn hit me with a government SUV.

3. What do you think ought to happen to the State Department agent who hit you? Have they reached out to apologize? Do you plan to sue? Considering Mike McGuinn broke the law when he hit me and failed to identify himself to me or provide contact information, he should be subject to the same laws as everyone else in DC. Maybe that’s because I’m new here. No, nobody at State has apologized. As for suing, I just got out of the hospital and I don’t know yet. Right now I’m getting a lot of advice and I’m trying to sort through it.

Quote of the Day
“VandeHei and O’Reilly go at it. Lots of yelling. VandeHei wins (he IS my boss you know).”
Martin Kady, Politico’s Congressional Bureau Chief, on Twitter last night after his boss, Executive Editor Jim VandeHei, engaged in a fiery exchange on FNC’s “The O’Reilly Factor” with host Bill O’Reilly.

Wallace’s Palin Interview is His Best Ever

chris.jpg sarah_palin_.jpg

Former V.P. hopeful and FNC contributor Sarah Palin told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that if she didn’t run for president she’d do the best “darn good job” as a reporter.

Well it turns out that Palin, with all her dang, darn, heck, hell no, bull-stuff and you betcha’s earned Wallace his best show ratings ever this past Sunday in his six years hosting the show. She explained the e-mail “issue” involving her husband, Todd, whom she referred to as “Alaska’s first dude,” she re-issued her call for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to resign for using the phrase “f–king retarded” and analyzed the GOP presidential field, which included herself.

Wallace interviewed Palin in Nashville, where she was keynoting the National Tea Party Convention.

Nielsen reports show Wallace’s high ratings with 132,000 viewers and a 4.2 Household rating – record-breaking numbers for the show in D.C. In the demographic (25-54), “Fox News Sunday” had 58,000 viewers, beating all three shows — NBC’s “Meet the Press”, CBS’s “Face the Nation” and ABC’s “This Week”.
