Behar: Condi 'Deserved' Boxer Jab [Video]

Let me guess: before making up your mind about Barbara Boxer's recent controversial remark to Condi Rice, you wanted to have the benefit of Joy Behar's expert analysis. Good news! Joy weighed in just a few minutes ago; her considered opinion is now available to an impatient public.

Rosie O'Donnell kicked off a segment of this morning's View by playing the video clip of Boxer's remark on Iraq, in which the senator from CA told the Secretary of State: "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family."

Behar acknowledged that Boxer's comment was "a sabotage way to say it," but then added:
"Condi is part of an administration that did start an unjust war. So she deserved it, in my opinion."
So much for feminist solidarity, at least when the woman on a slur's receiving end is not a liberal.
