Joy Behar is taking Keith Olbermann’s place on Current TV, which means that, after this year, no one will ever seen Joy Behar again. Which might be bad for her career as a television personality, but it will certainly give her adequate cover to pursue her aspirations as an arsonist.
BEHAR: I mean, I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. Who’s he going to call, the Mormon fire patrol?
MEDIAITE: Is that a thing?
BEHAR: You know what I mean? Come on. What am I supposed to do if my apartment gets caught on fire? Am I gonna call Mitt Romney to come and put it out? See what I mean?
Apparently, this was some sort of comment on Mitt Romney’s lack of opposition to public sector union reform which has somehow, over the last week, been translated by the left to mean that Mitt Romney would like to gather all of the teachers, police officers and firefighters and burn them at the stake while the hold baskets of kittens. Apparently, Ms. Behar also believes “limited government” to mean “complete and total f***ing anarchy,” which is, I suspect, comes in handy in Current TV auditions and at her coven mixers.
What Ms. Behar actually managed to do was insult Mormons, firefighters, Mitt Romney, homeowners, and arsonists all with one poorly constructed joke (which is, quite frankly, a feat in and of itself) while exposing her total lack of self-awareness.In 2011, Ms. Behar’s net worth was estimated at a cool $8 million, which might be poverty by the standards of her View co-hosts and her Mormon adversary, but she still ain’t shopping retail.
The rest of the interview is just as awesome. You should listen to it. And after you’ve stopped weeping for the soul of the human race, you’ll understand why we really do need public education reform.
