Hey Behar, keep insulting our candidates–your fundraising efforts for us are really paying off!
I’ve never watched The View, but from all I’ve read its pretty liberal. That’s why I don’t waste my time. But yesterday I took an interest because on Hotair they highlighted a clip of where a host, Joy Behar, called Sharron Angle –the B word, and shortly thereafter said Angle was going “to hell”.

An Alternative Solution for ‘The Site’
Everyone here it seems has written a diary on their take regarding the Ground Zero Mosque. The ‘cultural center’ thats a place for ‘healing’. Obviously, putting the mosque there is not going to “heal” anybody and the idea just poured salt on a very deep wound, which I suspect was their idea all along.
