Ann Coulter vs. Joy Behar on 'Larry King Live': TKO Coulter?

Feb 20, 2009, 11:14 AM | by Ken Tucker

Categories: Television

Ann Coulter appeared on a Joy Behar-hosted edition of Larry King Live last night, and CNN kept superimposing the caption, "Ann Coulter Unleashed!" Boy, was the network, and Behar, just aching for Coulter to scorch up the airwaves. This is why Coulter gets invited on TV shows when she has a book to flog: she can be relied upon to say outrageous things, egged on by her hosts.

But last night, Behar was trying too hard. Quoting the conservative columnist Rich Lowry about some discussion point, Behar suddenly asked Coulter, "Did you ever date him?" Huh? Gee, kind of a sexist question, isn't that, Joy?

Trying to align Coulter with Rush Limbaugh, Behar said that Limbaugh wasn't a Republican but an "extreme right-winger" and that a lot of Limbaugh's listeners probably hated him. Coulter responded that when you have over 20 million listeners, you're not extreme but "dead down the center" when it comes to popularity.

She also asked Behar if, given the fact that Oprah Winfrey has an audience at least as big if not larger, would Behar say that a big chunk of Oprah's audience hates Oprah? Whatever you think of Coulter, this just makes pop-cultural sense. I always enjoy you on The View, Joy, but last night on Larry King, I'd have to say, you got served by Coulter.

Behar was like a rabid pit bull, except uglier and meaner.

Here is video of Coulter's appearance on The View a couple weeks ago from which Joy Behar refused to play Coulter's best bytes.

She's supposed to be a comedian...lol

Her fame as a despotic liberal on The View has gone to her head.

I had no idea she ever hosted Larry King Live, but she is a perfect substitute for him.

If she wore suspenders, you wouldn't be able to tell them apart except that she is older than King.

“Now, Joy Behar is, just like Sarah Palin is everything that conservatives will hope that she would be, Joy Behar is exactly in my brief experience with her exactly everything that conservatives would presume her to be in the negative. She’s an idiot, I frankly think she’s a bit of a b***h”

That Behar comes out with the most ridiculous questions. I wonder if she is really that much of an idiot.

Ann Coulter is one of the few on the right that says what’s on her mind. There’s nothing phoney about her.

She used to do stand up. She was pretty good too. I don’t know what happened to her. Like Bill Maher and some others, she turned into a bitter, unfunny Leftist.

Bad jokes. before Bush she was a man hating feminist, then she caught Bush derangement syndrome, and became popular with the leftwing moonbats in Holliwierd nightclubs. Now she has nothing, but left over Bush derangement. She tries for Ann, but Ann keeps slapping her down.

Actually she could be a good one if she stopped mocking conservatives and Republicans. I caught a clip today on the View, where she was laughing at herself and it was pretty good. I was surprised.

"She was pretty good too."

I'm not trying to pick a fight, but I find that REALLY, REALLY hard to believe.

I was taking care of my mother (broken hip - all good now) the last two months and was subjected to the View far too many times to be healthy. I think I have a fairly good sense of humor and am honest about comedy. I did not hear one funny sentence come out of her mouth - not one. Bill Maher, whom I can't stand, at least is amusing from time to time.

Here's my other bitch about the view (while I'm venting). Behar has TWO writers that help her with material - WHAT MATERIAL? Barbara Walters has created a show where she pits three professional comedians (one an Oscar winner) against the most inarticulate, uncharismatic, least intelligent "conservative" that Walters could find - Elizabeth.

If the View really cared about rating and "fairness" they would put a Coulter, Ingraham or Monica Crowley on that panel and see real conservative fight from an intellectual and charismatic perspective.

In short, I can't stand the View.

That is all.

    Way to go Ann!!! Going into that snakepit ambush took a lot of guts. I admire your tenacity and convictions. Your hosts were a sterling example of the fragile state of the liberal mind.

Here is Another Video Link to Coulter on The View.

After watching that prelude, click on the Video Response on the right, then the other one if you wish to.

Lots of bizarre comments.

I didn't know that. All she ever does are the same tired old Bush and Cheney bashing material that's been done to death by all the other sad, worn out "comedians" on late night tv.

Her only other "quality" is shouting down Elizabeth along with Woopsie, who before she joined the view was also doing the comedy circuit ranting about Bush and Cheney.

I kinda feel sorry for Elizabeth sometimes, but only sometimes because if she had a brain in her head to think quick enough she would be able to slap those moonbats down daily.

I have never thought Bill Maher was funny as a standup, and the crowds at Catch A Rising Star never thought so either...back in the J.J. Wall/Sandra Bernhard days I saw him rebuffed by non-laughing crowds on a number of occasions. Once he swore at the audience and walked offstage like a brat. There was nothing else he could do, I guess.

He wasn't too hip for the room. He just stank up the place.

Elizabeth may not be the sharpest knife, but even she takes the lefties to the woodshed fairly regularly.

You can tell by looking at her, she used to be a party gal. Never very pretty, but probably got good coke, and gained a modicum of popularity by giving alot of great "lip service," if you catch my drift.

But all those years and all those miles have taken their brutal toll, and now even the trash removal guy won't look twice at her. She hasn't gotten any in years, and it's turned her in to a hateful, vindictive liberal who uses appearances on national TV shows to talk about dildos.

So sad...

NOT!!!

You’d think these Lefties would get tired of having AC hand their asses to them by now .

Thanks for posting this, and the link to the interview.

After watching it I’d say in a previous life Joy Behar was a Baby Seal, and Ann Coulter was an Eskimo with a ball bat.

She’ made Behar look ridiculous. Not hard to do, but still enjoyable.

All that said, Behar isn’t stupid. She was smart enough to know the only way anyone would pay attention to her subbing for Larry the serial husband is to have Coulter on.

Instead of having Joy guest host, maybe ANN should have been the host! Do they ever have conservatives fill in on CNN? I never watch them. I suspect not too often and for the same reasons they would never think of adding a second combative conservative woman to the “View.”

Idiocy does not explain the just plain MEAN streak, or the attempts to completely obfuscate the issue at hand (like confusing “single mothers” with “widowed mothers” or “divorced mothers”).

One of Joy’s best lines was calling Sarah Palin’s daughter “Bristol Myers”, then catching herself.

Creeping senility, maybe. One more way Joy resembles Larry King.

They should change the name of the show from “The View,” to “THE FOG.” Makes more sense then.
