Entertainers From Hell

On January 23, Joy Behar, who apparently was once a comedian of some kind and now is in politics–sort of like Al Franken–appeared on the Larry King show on CNN. The Gay Patriot caught it and commented, but didn’t have access to the transcript. It’s up now, here, and it illustrates pretty well what we’re up against in the world of entertainment. (I assume someone out there must think Behar is entertaining.)

KING: OK, is this administration going to be hard for the comics to have fun with?

BEHAR: Yes. And all I can say is thank you for Joe Biden, because he is going to always give us some laughs. He’ll say something crazy and out there, and it will be fun. And Sarah Palin, you know, we can always rely on her to come back and give us some material. But it is really not easy to make fun of the Obamas, because they’re really — they’re kind of really perfect, aren’t they?

There you have it: America’s comics, those notorious subversives, just can’t ridicule our President because he’s “really perfect.” They’re still keeping an eye on Sarah Palin, though, just in case something funny happens in Alaska. More:

KING: Has “The View” become more political?

BEHAR: Yes, because of the election year. Yes. I think that — don’t you think that comedians were very instrumental this year in helping Obama get elected?

KING: By attacking Bush, you mean?

BEHAR: Yes, I mean Tina Fey, she really put the nail in the old coffin there. And “The View,” we had our little interactions, little (INAUDIBLE) with the McCains, although I like John McCain very much, but I didn’t want him to be president, so I had to do what I had to do.

Well, thanks for laying it right out there. There’s much more that is sickening in the interview, but the most significant point, I think, is that network women’s television is on record as being an organ of the Democratic Party. There is no conceivable reason why any Republican or conservative would support this nonsense by watching it.
