In her attempt to start her show with a bang on Wednesday night, Joy Behar began by citing a list on the Human Events website that put her ninth on a list of the most obnoxious Hollywood liberals (behind Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Danny Glover, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Alec Baldwin, and Janeane Garofalo.)
This week, a conservative website listed me as the ninth most obnoxious liberal in Hollywood. First of all, I'm not in Hollywood. I’m in New York, you (bleep), and I have only one thing to say in response. Only ninth? What do I have to do to get to be number one on this list? Spend the night with Barney Frank? Okay. I'll stay number nine. Never mind.
If Joy wasn't so gay-friendly, that might raise more eyebrows. On ABC's The View on Tuesday, all men became the target because of the Arnold Schwarzenegger story:
"Who knew that the Sperminator was doing more than pumping iron?" Joy Behar said. "These guys are out of control!"
"You keep wondering, what is wrong with these men that they can't keep the zipper up?!" Barbara Walters said.
If anyone were allowed to rebut the Boss on the set of The View, it would have been very easy to remind Barbara she boasted of her own extramarital affair with Sen. Edward Brooke in her memoirs. Or, as it was described, "Barbara Walters, Skanky in the Seventies."
