Joy Behar Receives Kneepads Via Rush Delivery for Obama Interview, Quickly Wears Them Out

Rush Limbaugh will be pleased that the money he spent to Fed-Ex Joy Behar a pair of kneepads in time for President Obama’s appearance on The View didn’t go to waste.

From Media Bistro:

“You’ve really done a lot, I think,” Joy Behar, who now has her own talk show on HLN, said. “You’ve signed 200 plus laws since you’re in office, financial reform has taken place, you’ve got health care, two women on the supreme court… and yet the right wing, through Fox News and other outlets, seem to be hijacking the narrative. Where on your side is the narrative? Where is your attack dog to come out and tell the American people, listen, this is what we did?”

“Joy, that’s your job,” the president joked, to which Behar shot back, “I do it! But I’m only one woman!”

And Katie Couric is only one woman! And Diane Sawyer is only one woman! And Chris Matthews is only one woman!

Obama has a point, though. The left-leaning press and select View dingbats were supposed to be his attack dogs, and they’re failing miserably — mainly because they don’t seem to be able to successfully complete their unenviable assigned chore of convincing Americans that what they’re being forced to buy is something they wanted in the first place.

In a separate “Obama on The View” note, if any other president had said this, watch out.
