Ode To Joy

I haven't agreed with comic Joy Behar since the late 1980's when she told me I shouldn't marry my husband because he was too skinny. She added, "He doesn't have two legs, he has one leg cut in half."

I could never figure out why Ms. Behar thought a skinny husband would make a bad husband. Perhaps she thought his two half-legs couldn't carry my fat ass out of a burning building.

But, in 20 years, my skinny boyfriend has ballooned into a thin husband so I think I won that round.

Two decades later, Joy Behar's logic still escapes me. What she recently said about President-elect Obama on The View, however, just pisses me off.
I think it’s very unpatriotic for a lot of people to put him down already before the guy has even had a chance.
To quote John Stossel, "Gimme a break!"

Now, I don't have a problem with ideologues but I do have a serious problem with hypocritical ideologues. Where was Joy Behar's support for President-elect Bush from the time he "stole" the election from Al Gore until his inauguration that January? Was her very public criticism of him unpatriotic?

I didn't vote for Barak Obama but I've also said repeatedly that I hope I'm wrong about the man and he turns out to be a great president. Joy Behar never gave W the same consideration.

Besides, if Brian was too skinny to be my husband than why isn't Barack too skinny to be president?

Joy has more enemies in comedy than she realizes because of random insults, which I THINK she assumes are funny.

And The Manorexic is too skinny to be President. lol.
