Behar: So what? I call all my close friends “bitches”

There is no “apology.”

So I’m not sure why Mediaite headlines its latest Joy Behar video, “Joy Behar Apologizes For Calling Sharron Angle ‘Bitch;’ Says It’s ‘A Term Of Endearment.’

In fact, the non-”apology” shows that in addition to being a foul-mouthed, spewing shrew, Behar is also an inveterate coward who won’t take responsibility for her words:

“I really shouldn’t have called her a bitch,” said Behar today. “To me, that’s a term of endearment. I reserve that word for people that I know and love. So that was a mistake and I take it back.”

Wait, Joy Behar and Sharron Angle – secret BFFs?

After reiterating the fact that it was a racist ad that Angle approved, she turned to her co-hosts. “You girls are my bitches,” she said as the audience applauded. I especially love when you call me your skinny bitch,” said Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

If this rationalization sounds familiar, it should.

In 2007, I called Behar on her “bitch”-y hypocrisy. After using the profanity against me, she demanded that John McCain condemn Hillary Clinton’s critics for using the same language Behar selectively deems a “term of endearment.”

Flashback:

JOY BEHAR: It would have been nice. He is a gentleman, usually, McCain. It would have been nice for him to say [to a female supporter that called HIllary Clinton a "bitch:]” “Well, you know, I think you’re referring to my opponent and I don’t particularly like the way you’re refer to her.” That’s all. It would have been nice and respectful to say that. That’s all. As far as Bush is concerned, I mean, I respect the office of the presidency. I just don’t respect him.

[Applause]

SHEPHERD: What I’m saying is the same could be said, she felt Hillary Clinton was a bitch. And so she said it.

BEHAR: No, that’s a personal assault on the woman.

SHEPHERD: You do personal assaults on President Bush.

BEHAR: Yes, I do.

SHEPHERD: So what’s the difference? What’s the difference?

BEHAR: The difference is that I don’t like him.

[Laughter]

SHEPHERD: What’s the difference? She didn’t like her.

GOLDBERG: And this woman doesn’t like her. But I still don’t understand what people wanted him to do. You’re saying he should have said “don’t say this,” but the truth of the matter is we walk around doing it all the time and the only way we get away with it is there’s no cameras with us. If no one had seen it on camera, would people have been as mad?

BEHAR: Probably not.

GOLDBERG: I don’t think so either.

SHEPHERD: And also, John McCain is a human being. Sometimes you get caught off guard. Sometimes people say things and you don’t come back the way people think you’re supposed.

BEHAR: At the end of the day, it’s going to work in favor of Mrs. Clinton because she gets the sympathy vote. Women don’t like it. That’s the truth. And so more women will vote for her because of that, I think.

SHEPHERD: Because she got called a bitch?

BEHAR: Yes. They don’t like it. It’s very sexist to call a woman a bitch when you’re a man. We could say it to each other.

[...]

GOLDBERG: We don’t want to get him all wrapped up in that. What I was trying to say is people say stuff all the time and I don’t know if everybody has to always accommodate everybody else’s political correctness. Because John McCain is a good guy. He’s a very smart guy. And, you know, we say this word all the time. I don’t know how much mail comes in about us saying it. It would be interesting to find out.

BEHAR: I think it’s when you’re friendly with a person, you can say it. We perceive them as being as being adversaries. And therefore, it did not seem appropriate. I think that’s the bottom line of it.

This woman is already loopier than a box of Cheerios.

Just wait until Sharron Angle wins on Nov. 2…

That’ll be Senator Bitch to you, Joy.

Five more days. Just five more days.
