Joy Behar: Maybe Obama would rather talk to me than Netanyahu — ever consider that?

As a bizarre and perpetually confused friend once reminded me, “even a blind squirrel’s broken clock finds a nut twice a day.” And so it was with Joy Behar, who attempted to offer a defense of President Obama’s meeting schedule while at the same time unwittingly pointing out a perceived problem with the priorities:

Joy Behar doesn’t like all the criticism President Obama has received for going on The View while refusing to meet with any world leaders at the United Nations meeting in New York City this week.

“Obama is being bashed for doing the View instead of meeting world leaders,” Behar, a co-host of The View and outspoken liberal comedian, tweeted. “Maybe he’d rather talk to me than Netanyahu. Ever think of that?” She also tweeted a photo from Obama’s appearance on the show, which she described as a “lovefest.”

No argument here. It was a simple decision on the part of the president, really. Where’s he more likely to be considered eye candy while reaching “low information voters”: at boring meetings with world leaders during times of trouble around the world (speculation about how a Netanyahu meeting would look can be seen here) or amid an adoring throng (save perhaps for one) at The View?
