On Wednesday’s Joy Behar Show on HLN, after playing a clip of Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell when she spoke out against masturbation on MTV in 1996, host Behar cracked that, "She needs to watch some porn and get some tips, is what she needs," as Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez tried to argue that O’Donnell’s religious beliefs should not be held against the Delaware Republican.

SEKOFF: No, no, no, that’s not necessarily, that's not, Leslie, Leslie-
SANCHEZ: She created an abstinence video for MTV for youth. I mean-
BEHAR: She needs to watch some porn and get some tips, is what she needs.
