So I guess i will be looking at Rachel Maddow show tonite.
See everyone when AC 360 comes on.


Mike, Zephyrhills, FL   February 19th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

Coulter and Rush,

Now thats a pair Id like to see have a kid!! What a Conservative that child would be!!

I have to give her credit, words and articles do sell , so keep it in the news and make millions, I need a women and bread winner like that!

After this Depression is over and they go back and look at Reagan and Bush's even Clinton, I think they will rank in the bottom 4!

Trickle Down Economics, another name for it Communism!! or what Mexico has now!! Yippie!! United States of Latin America!! stay tuned for more good old fashion nonsense from the republicans.

What would Reagan do now ???


Mike, Zephyrhills, FL   February 19th, 2009 8:54 pm ET

Jackson , MI where the Republican party began, doesnt look very republican today. Republicans Trickle Down Policies have ruined that town and others.

I think if we went and cloned Lincoln, Kennedy, & Reagan we would have the greatest President of all!!

Certainly not, O'reilly, Coulter, Limbaugh, etc.. DNA, yuk!!


larry rowland   February 19th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

hi larry, i can't believe anyone would invite someone like ann C> on their program, she is not a normal human being & a disgrace to america! larry

Dace Tucson AZ   February 19th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Larry as you can see this toxic hate speaking liar is killing your regular audience tonight show will re-join you tomorrow. Why would we want to participate in watching something more vile than a bubbling roting sewer spewing lies and hate?


Rhonda   February 19th, 2009 9:04 pm ET

Ann's eyelash is falling off!


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

Ann, are you ready to meet your maker, what if HE is really disgusted with all your good works? What if He tells you that you brought disgrace to HIS name? Would you reconsider your point of view?


Floyd D'Aguiar   February 19th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

For 8 years during Bush's term and 8 years during Reagan's term, tax cuts were given to the richest 5% of the country even though they were wealthy and did not need government help.

Why were the tax cuts not considered to be transfer of wealth to the wealthy 5%?

Did the anti-socialism values die during those 16 years?


Jennifer   February 19th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

What exactly are Ann Coulter's qualifications to be on your show? I know she's written books, she spouts off her opinions on various TV and radio shows. But is there a reason we should care what she thinks? Has she ever been right about anything? It just seems that if you're going to have people on criticizing or critiquing politics, they should at least have some experience or actual knowledge.


John C   February 19th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

This is turning into a shouting match. Joy if your going to fill in for the King at least conduct a proper interview.


Ray   February 19th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Good point, Joy! Not all of Rush Limbaugh's listeners listen because they support him, the same way I am not watching LKL tonight because I support Coulter. It's a sick addiction to entertainment of over inflated egos.


Karen   February 19th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

This could be the worst interview I have ever watched. Tit for Tat, they both sound ridiculous. If Joy is going to interview someone, she should try to be a tiny bit respectful. It's actually painful to watch and not the least bit interesting or enjoyable.


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

When Rebublicans want money it is all for the sake of america, when the Democrats want funding, it is called socialism. Well wake up, you tryed to play the God card and He showed you what he thought of your lies. You are the biggest group of hypocrites, our country can never be reunited with these right winged Nazi's. AS a christian I am ashamed of the affiliiation.


concered/Denver Colorado   February 19th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

Tell Ann i am listerning toher and do not agree with anything that she is saying ..and I listern to Rush and no do agree with him either ...So she can stop fooling herself ..with thinking she has as much as she thinks shs dose


Marta Jovenich   February 19th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

I can't watch anymore – she is the worse


JRal   February 19th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

I cannot wait for Bill Maher to tear Ann C apart


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Behar vs. Colter
Round 1 Behar ....
Joy I love the way you handle her. You are GREAT!


Michel Pons   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Hey Ann,

Clinton's surplus was only on paper? Really???? C'mon toots.


Julie   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

I turned on Larry King as I usually do tonight, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the lovely and comical Joy Behar was sitting in for Larry and then I saw......Ann Coulter. Ugh...I turned the channel.


Hugh S   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Dear Ann,

Twenty-million "Rush" listeners in a population of 300 million means that a whopping 6.66% of the country listens to him. How is 6.66% of ANYTHING considered popular?


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

wow thanks for letting my post go through cnn the sociast wont let a conservative post on here...amaizng...and sad


Jennifer   February 19th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

I don't know why this woman continues to get air time. If we ignore her, maybe she'll go away.


msm22   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

this interview is like watching a train wreck & behar is the engineer....her distaste for coulter is hardly TRANSPARENT...I am not a fan of coulter however behar is not doing a larry king job of interviewing......


DIANE IN CALIFORNIA   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Can you ask Ann if she believes in God and why she wears a cross on
her neck.


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

how many people hate Ann, say "I"


Greg C.   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Ann needs to check her facts and figures. On the day President Bush took office, the national debt stood at $5.727 trillion. The latest number from the Treasury Department shows the national debt now stands at more than $9.849 trillion. That’s a 71.9 percent increase on Mr. Bush’s watch. It’s the biggest increase under any president in U.S history. She is as false and phoney as her hair color.


lamour   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Ann Coulter-here's a News Flash! Many of us would not buy your book; nor do we agree with your anti-black, anti-American views. You hate socialism? Jesus was the great socialist–He commanded us who are have it to take care of the widows, homeless, and less fortunate. But obviously you are not a Christian! So you don't care about taking care of the middle class and poor. Thank God for President Obama!


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

bill maher is horrible...ann c would tear him up


Dan   February 19th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Ann and Sarah should sail off together = far, far away 😉


Julia   February 19th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Gosh, Ann is intense!! Seems like republicans' only hope is just to yell louder considering her, Limbo, and other unpleasant noises. Either democrats should degrade to that level or this country should get rid of its second party! God help you, Joy!


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

ann and sarah are the only real women ...send obama far far away


dave   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Ann;

WE LOVE YOU!
I wish you were allowed to speak without interuption.

Fondly,
2 Gay Men in CT


Chris   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Let me just say – I love Joy, but Ann...if you don't think people hate you, you better think again. Hate is a strong word – but you are strong enough to take the criticism.


Cynthia   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

I love LKL, but Ann has more issues than Time magazine... she is a total trainwreck... it is too hard to watch. I'll tune back in tomorrow.


Dennis James   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Is Ann Coulter smoking something? Does she honestly believe the economy downfall started a year ago when the election started. How is it that republicans can blame everyone else for our nations problems except themselves (Republicans).


Scott Sullivan   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Ann Coulter is the most obnoxious guest I've seen in the last 2 years, hands down. She won't even let Joy Behar speak, she is just rediculously self absorbing. Everybody loves me, everybody loves me... look at me... look at me... I'm important... PLEASE!!


Frustrated in Cadott   February 19th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

HEY! Is anyone there?? Who is this interviewing Ann?? How about getting her off the air, and have someone interview Ann with some clue? This is a disaster, and Ann doesn't deserve this!!


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Round 2 Behar
Ann Coulter WOW!


steve   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

ya ann this was all bill clintons doing you rep. keep telling yourselves that .. you @ rush im sure you sleep better


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Bill Maher is not terrible, Bill is a lot more fun to listen to then this Ann lady. Wow.


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Limbaugh is the only voice of reason in this socialist world we are entering in under obama ....


Lauren   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

I have been a fan of Larry King for years.
But
If you continue to have "JOY" from the "view" fill in I will have to rethink. She has no business on Larry Kings show. No matter what he wants or who he wants Joy is completly different from Larry. I enjoy the way he interviews and keeps his personal feelings out and lets his guets no matter how he feels speak and be heard. Not Joy she is arguementitive and has personal vendettas. Clearly comes across especially to Ann Colture. I am not a big fan of Anns but would like to her what she says. Joy doesn't let her finish 1 sentence or anyones as a matter


One In Dallas   February 19th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

What is Ann Coulter smoking by say that the economy crisis just started last fall? What rock has she been hiding under? Most economists have said and have proof that this thing has been going on for more than two years now.


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Republican ends in I CAN
Democrat ends in RAT

enough said!


RPaine   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Cartoons: South Park interviewing the Simpsons. Time for the remote.


Bianca   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

She has on the same shirt from when she appeared on The VIew, how classy lol!!!


MIke   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Anne I read your book & in my book club 90% of us dont like you because we think you fake


Haydee   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

I am feeling sorry for Ann Coulter. I never thought I would feel that way. Joy is giving her a beating.


DIANE IN CALIFORNIA   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

It would be great if you invited ANN AND BILL MAHER TO B E ON THE
SHOW TOGETHER.


Rob (AZ)   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

I guess I’m ignorant I have no Idea who Ann is but dang what an aregant self centered person…. WOW


Michelle in Ohio   February 19th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Joy is right. There are a LOT of people who cannot stand Ann because she is mean and often espouses ignorant views. And by the way, I'm a republican.


catherine howard   February 19th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I am from Canada and love to follow US politics and everything that surrounds it but not tonight!!!will rejoin CNN at 10pm for AC360
There is no way i would watch Ann Coulter except if i was tied to a tree and forced to and even then lol


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

what is with the deer in the headlight look, and the voice, SO STRANGE, Ann is just plain strange and ignorant. WHAT IS SHE?


ljg   February 19th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

Yes I agree Joy please be respectful when INTERVIEWING Ann. You are so confrontational Joy. Go back to the COUCH JOY!


Jared   February 19th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

This interview is terrible.
Is this really the best CNN can do at prime time?
Larry King is bad enough but then you have this woman ( I can't think of her name) sit in for him. And she can't use senility as an excuse.


Sabrina   February 19th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

Please get Ann Coulter off the show! She's very arrogant and speaks a lot of ebonic language. She's trying her best to be famous to help her books sales,but it is not working with me or for me. NEXT!!!!


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

cmon 2012...Palin/Jindal!


Diane   February 19th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

I am disgusted watching Joy inteview Ann. What an unprofessional job she's doing. Her job is to interview, not to debate. I will not watch the show again if Joy is going to be filling in for Larry. What could the producers be thinking?? It appears that her goal is to discredit someone with views other than her own. Again, I say unprofessional.


oldasnew   February 19th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

way to go Ryan Texas love it!


One In Dallas   February 19th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

What is Ann Coulter smoking by saying ...


Ruth Milligan   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Joy is a terrible interviewer! She has her own agenda and won't let the guests speak. You can tell that she has a chip on her shoulder with Miss Coulter.

Please don't have Joy again!


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Ahhhhhhh Joy finally met her match.


Jose Urbina   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Let Ann Coulter know on my behalf that I read her book and I want a refund! It is amazing how we got into the mortgage mess because of the greed and evilness of people. It is this same greed and evilness that she writes in every word. Please don't waste any more of your viewers time and get her off the show. With people like her I now know why our country is in such a mess!!! Want an example!!!


Scott Sullivan   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

She's just rude, mean, and self righteous.. disgusting.


JRal   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Ryan...from Texas...Crack kills. Lay down the pipe.


Liz   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

This is a cruel person. Knowing the comments that she made about the widows of 911, I cringe at the thought of her saying something about the loss of the 911 widow in the recent plane tragedy.


ljg   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

lol bill!!! Good one!


Barb   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Joy,
You asked her the question, "Do you think people hate her?" My answer is "yes." She's obnoxious and so out of touch with reality. You couldn't pay me to read anything written by her, but I have to ask, since you said you read her book, does it make any sense?

Thanks,
Barb from NJ


Lori   February 19th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

I listen to Rush Limbaugh periodically for the same reason that I watch Ann Coulter every time I get the chance - to find out if they will say something more ridiculous than the last time they opened thier mouths.


James in Kamiah Idaho   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Dear Ann,

Do republicans suffer some horrible physical pain that keeps them from accepting personal responsibility?


msm22   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I think Maher & Coulter were an item once upon a time & Maher maintains he likes Coulter for anyone who has watched 'Real Time" or "Politically Incorrect"


Bianca   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Why is she NOT answering the callers question?


earlene sherman   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

WHY would you have Joy Behar fill in for Larry? I stopped watching the view after 15 years due to Joy Behar. Ann Coulter deserves better than this. At least get someone to fill in for Larry with some intelligence. I cannot believe CNN would allow Joy Behar to interview Ann Coulter. I stopped counting how many times Joy Behar rudly interrupted Ann after asking questions. Then Joy changes the question after asking it. This is ridiculous.


Carol   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Ann Coulter is an irritant much like bleach.


DishWithTrish   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

OMIGAAAD ! You need Joy hosting more often, especially with Ann. No way No how could Larry even compare to Joy with Ann. This is really one of the BEST segments ever. Joy, you go girl !


Carole Wheelis   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

KUDOS to my gal tonite....! She's doing great on Larry King tonite, inspite of the guest Ann Coulter. And I knew she would!!!
Keep up the great work Joy!!! Proud of you!


LaVita Brooks   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

If Coulter and the New York Post cartoonist fell mute, the world would be a better place!


AK   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I'm just reading the blogs...had to turn the channel because that lady is just hateful. If what she says didn't come across as hateful, maybe someone would at least giver her the courtesy of listening to her opinion. I listen to Rush...I don't agree with him at all...but you have to keep your enemies close and know what they're up to.


walter   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

something is clearly wrong with the mental stability of this coulter character. why does the media give this nut any media exsposer. get real!

joy... continue keeping it real!


BeckyP in Ohio   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Larry,

Please, I beg you, do not have Ann Coulter on your program again.

Jeesh! She thinks that the Clinton Administration's surplus was a paper gain?

Having her on your program, in the future, will cause me to change channels.

Watching her on your program is an insult to my intelligence and she isn't even entertaining.

Thanks for listening, Becky


lynne   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I want to know how ann would solve our economic crisis, since she seems to have all of the answers. Plus, since she and "everybody" knew about this economic crisis for a long time, did she get out of the stock market before it crashed?


glenna tomlin   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

how!why does larry turn Joy behar loose on guest who we would actually like to hear them speak instead of fending off joy attack'sJoy your the reason i don't view the view anymore and larry your about to join the list


steve   February 19th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

giving ann air time is just what is wrong with this country send here away away away away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! get a life ann!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


ljg   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Oh HOW rude that JOY is...she is OFFENDING ME!


john   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

I hate Ann...Love Joy


G.R.   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

It's really sad when a 14 year old can realize all the crap she's saying.

I agree with everyone else who just decided to change the channel.

Sure, let's jump into a depression, torture a few more prisoners, continue killing people everywhere, and be hated by the rest of the world, why don't we Ann Coulter?
Now I'm not saying to turn into the Spanish-speaking USA, but come on, let's use a little common sense when we run the government people!

By the way, thank God: Obama WAS elected, he'll be in office for 4 years. Not Ann or Rush.


Ed St. Clairsville, OH   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Ann,

How does it feel to belong to a political party that is perfect? Don't forget that 6 of the last 8 years republicans ruled in the white house, congress and the senate. So don't blame the democrats for the republican failures.

Ed


John ortiz   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

As usual, Anne Coulter is either a blatant lier or deliberately tries to convince people of her view with misleading information. The federal budget deficit under George W. Bush swelled to a "total" of $2.1 trillion. The deficit in 2008 alone was over $400 billion. "W" inherited a surplus in 2000 of $180 billion.

Anne: we're not stupid, your following is.


Catherine P.   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Joy,

You are an absolute saint to sit with that woman for an hour. She is the most insensitive, egomaniac...I can't stand to listen to her for more than a minute.

I agree with another blogger above...if we ignore her, maybe she'll go away.


kay   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Ann Coulter......nothing original there......no substance yawn.....next.....changing channel......


lamour   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Ann-so the Simulus Bill transfers money to the states-Guess who lives in the states???? DUH! Unemployed and people with foreclosed homes! DOUBLE DUH!


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Hey Ann, read the good Book, "GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER", awww too bad it pains you so to see people get something given to them. So hard for a greedy stingy witch.


Cat   February 19th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

It is beyond me how someone like Coulter can be on TV. She looks like a man in drag. Nauseating nasal voice. She seems to be mad at the world. A very brainless depressing person. A waste of airtime!


jamie   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Please never let Joy do this program again. I would think that most people that watch Larry King do not watch The Veiw and for good reason.


ljg   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Please Larry King...NO MORE JOY. Your fans will TUNE you OUT!


Scott Sullivan   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

She can't even answer a question directly.. Changes the subject.. Blah blah.. w


srao   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Question to Ann,
WHat does she think of Bill Maher? Did she date him when they were "friends"??


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

JRAL do you depend on the goverment for everything ? i bet you have never made payroll in your life or run a business...please depend on goverment for everything...you have no clue....


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

JRAL do you depend on the goverment for everything ? i bet you have never made payroll in your life or run a business...please depend on goverment for everything...you have no clue....


Myra   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

This has to be the most ridiculous and down right stupid woman I have ever seen or heard. Ann, you are not liked and i must say many, many people do indeed hate you. No one gives a dame what you think. You are insulting and a disgrace.


Hugh S   February 19th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

G-uaranteed
O-bsolescence
P-lease


Kiran   February 19th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Am I watching Larry King Live??!!!


Melissa   February 19th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

I quickly scanned all the blogs thus far – not one supporter for Ann. Clinton left a surplus on "paper" for Bush???????

DUH!!


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a fake .... she is just trying to sell books.... Its one thing to a republican there is another thing hating on American


serano   February 19th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Hey Joy,

I am a gay48yr. old liberal in the Wine country Northern Calif.

I've been watching LKL for about 15yrs. I didn't know you were filling in tonight. I thought Larry would be here. I just feel that you are handling the show more of a debate, then a host.

I CAN'T STAND Ann Coultter either, but I do not watch LKL for this kind of interviewing. You are making her look good.

Best,

Serano


ann warner   February 19th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Larry, when are you coming back? I had to turn the show off by 9:16.
What kind of interviewing is Joy doing. Both these women are so snarky towards one another it's like watching The View in the evening.
Joy has no intentions of having a civil discourse with Ann, especially since she reduced the level of the show to orgasms!


.Michelle H   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Ann, keep up the good work in educating the public about this atrocious "spendulous" bill! The masses need to know the truth about what has been done to them!


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Joy is just as obnoxious. I don't like her on the View or on Larry King Live. She is a Miss know it all and has a big mouth and she does not think before she speaks.


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

I do not know whose worse Pat Buchannan or Ann C.

WOW...........................


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

JRAL please stay on food stamps and live in your fantasy land...wait till we are at 18 % inflation next year due to your so call "messia" president...shows how out of tune this country is........yea your a genius...


Kim   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Come Joy! why waste your time with Ann she has dirty mouth.Hope you have someone else for the next segment.


CEJ   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Ask her about her voter fraud!

Ask her you fund a war; on tax cuts ?

The war in Iraq alone cost 3 trillion dollars; bush's deficit was over 1.5 trillion!


Sue   February 19th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Why does she believe that doing nothing will really help a globalized recession and if the conservatives have better ideas–why are not they trying to work in a by-partisan manner to help globally.


christian   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Ann Coulter represents the worse of the country , a person so narrow minded and stubborn as she is, is what gave america its bad image for the last 8 years. Rush and her are a pair of sad right wing extremists burning inside cause their party is demolished.


Bianca   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I was raised by a single mother you idiot.


Adam B.   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I thought Larry was above airing a donkey show. What a waste of Joy Behar's time.


ted   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

ann coulter refers to mein kampf one The View, and on Donny Deutsch's show commented, "she has no problems with Jews, but as Christians need to Perfect them.

appears to me she has anti semetic tendencies.

so glad she thinks all Christians are perfect


JoJo   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Joy you go girl-I just can't listen any more-my ears hurt!!


Carole   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Joy is embarrassing. Her logic does not hold.

And I am a democrat !!!!!


msm22   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

this cat fight is the absolute worst interview ever....time to change channels or do we need legislation?


SANDRA   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I can`t see ann coulter as a Christian conservative,so much hate spews out of her mouth.I think she needs to find a man to marry,have kids and be too busy to worry about all us democrats !!!


oldasnew   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

James personal responsibility about republicans. Look at what the democrats are doing. Bringing welfare back. Helping people out that were to stupid to read a contract. Obama cabinet that can not pay there taxes. Talk about responsibility democrates need to get some!


sarah   February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Joy should conduct a proper interview and keep her personal views out of it. She is degrading Ann (and I am not a huge fan of Ann). Larry would have done a much better job.

Joy, interview - don't argue for your party!!!!!111


Mary   February 19th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

You Go ANN!! Joy – You need to be Joyous..... Ann laughs with you. Be Joyful...


craigoh   February 19th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Why is it we only see Coulter when she has a book out? Then she crawls back into obscurity.


James in Kamiah Idaho   February 19th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

The Duggars are only slightly better, but they at least are together, employed, and didn't inseminate with multiple embryos after already living under their retired, and tired parents roof with 6 previous children, three of whom are developmentally disabled.


D Kinison   February 19th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Ann is wonderful; I love her inciteful comments which are always to the point and correct. Keep it up, Ann.


Leslie, LA   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

She's really the epitome of a dumb blonde. I thought that was a stereo type but she's proven they exisit.


jamie   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Joy and Ann. where is the remote


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

i 100 percent can not stand this woman!!!


Michael in Lutz Florida   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Please tell the Satan spawn and the promoter of HATE to shut up !!!


NessNC   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I am happy that is over


kirk mullins   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Thank goodness for Ann Coulter..she may be over the top but she is right on the mark on the majority of issues..maybe the fairness doctrine will force 20 million people to watch The View!


Scott   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Love You Ann.
Really I do!
Hugz
Scott


sporter   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Joy is an IDIOT!! ANN is AWESOME.....! I


Bob Ferguson   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann is exactly what America needs. She has grit, confidence and she represents the thoughts and beliefs of many Americans.


Nicole   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann Coulter is right on point. The statistics don't lie.


Deb in Nelsonville   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann Coulter is the most vile person in America. But watching her is like looking at a traffic accident – you can't look away.


lamour   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

JOY–WE LOVE YOU! Thanks for standing toe to toe with Ann Limbuagh.


Klaudia   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann you are my hero! ~ I want to think, act and talk like you...Right on Sista!


Azure Cangi   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I love Ann ! She speaks the truth that one day all of America will experience. Until then God will save only the true believers.


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

THANK YOU JOY FOR BEING WILLING TO EVEN INTERVIEW THIS HORRIBLE WOMAN.


mary young   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann Coulter made Joy Behar look like a fool. Joy is totally out of her league-Joy would do well to stick to comedy


Julie   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Joy said on The View today she can be fair to Anne, LOL..What a joke!!!


Sadie J   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I can not believe this "woman" said such nonsense about single mothers. I am proud to say that my mother was single, never married, had a child (me), now I am a successful educator in the state of Kentucky. Are you joking me Coulter?


nancygreer   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I think ANN is RIGHT on and the RECORD shows it...KEeep up the work .


Paisley   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I was just wondering if Ann feels that someone with a partner in a committed relationship should have a child without getting married. I did just that and I don't believe that the fact that we are not married detracts from our parenting ability.


Allen   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Say what you want ....this girl is brilliant !!
give her her own show!


Ken Whitton   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

If you are going to go head to head with Ann, choose someone that can compete.


Jenny   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Ann Coulter thinks people don't hate her? I can name quite a few people who hate Ann Coulter... Also, single moms being a drain on the economy? Last time I checked, our newest president was raised by a single mother!


James   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

OMG. She just gave me a headache! How can she utter a 30 minute answer without taking a single breath and maintain such a high level of negativism? It's no wonder she's 47, engaged 3 times yet never married! Who can handle that for more than a few minutes?!?!?!?


lorrie   February 19th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I actually like Ann. C. I am the same
age as her and a single unwed mother.
I am also a professional. Obamas mom was
single as well. Anyway, I admire the way
you help yourself up on the interview. I like
Joy but she was tough!! I think you are an
awesome strong very intelligent woman!!!!


Cindy   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I think Ann Coulter is great! She cuts through the spin and bs. I wish more people like Ann would speak up.


Marky   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

i think ann coulter is a beautiful strong woman who should run for office in the state of Georgia.

Atlanta Georgia loves you ANN!!!!!!!!


Vic   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

This is the first time I've actually seen Ann on TV. She's smart... and hot. When is she coming to Canada?


steve   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Maybe joy should stop and listen to Ann instead of bloviating, she might learn something.


Garrett   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Since Ann thinks people don't hate her why don't you remind her of that time someone threw a shoe at her face during a public speaking appearance a la George W. Bush.


Jerry   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann Coulter is refreshingly honest. Boot Joy from the host seat.


Sharon   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Way to go Ann!! Joy will never win against you!!.


kyle   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

i have a hypothetical question for Ann. if a member of the New York police department committed an act of terror in China would China be justified in invading the United States.


jack   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

great job ann, don't back down. its about time someone takes on the liberal media and calls an ace an ace and a spade, a spade. don't give up the fight.


Scott   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann is an entertainer. Her job is to make Ann a brand and sell her books. It's that simple. I am capitivated by her in the same way I am capitivated my Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker and OJ. They are pop culture. They won't last past our memories.


Vickie from Pottstown, Pa   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I think Ann Coulter is the smartest woman in the world!
Thanks for keeping the world informed in 'common sense.'
Keep it up, Ann.


DebbieKat   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Wow. What a caustic person Ann Coulter is. For her to make a blanket statement that all liberal women just casually have sex with whoever happens to be in the room. Nothing could be further from the truth. I would love to hear her answer as to why so many women from RED STATES are single mothers. Bristol Palin is a great example. She was raised by a hard right wing lunatic who thinks abstinence works. Is this the kind of conservatism that Ann Coulter buys into? Actually, I really wonder if she believes anything she says or if she just makes outrageous statements in an attempt to sell books and get airtime.


John W.   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

She's wrong about Bristol Palin. That kid won't end up commiting crimes because she comes from a wealthy family. It's typically poor, single mothers who raise the supposed 80% of criminals.

I don't know if that "80%" fact is true or not, as Ann just likes to win arguments and sell books.


Don   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

You Go Ann! I never watch Larry King and his liberal approach. Ann brings mainstream to the mainstream. Thanks.


Ckelly   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Yeah Joy ...I am not learning much and I am not entertained...this is quite antagonistic.

I appreciate true conservative principals and I also appreciate true liberal principals. As a Canadian viewer, I find militant democrats as irritating as militant conservatives..Bush is not representative of good conservative policy. He was not as evil as the democratic media made him out...President Obama is keeping the soldiers in the golf and he seems to be moving the USA in a positive direction. I like him!
However, he is not God..and during the elections he was given a free and easy ride by the liberal media.

Just being fair-All conservatives are not responsible for the fall of the economy but enough rebublicans and democrats with greedy natures are.Likewise statistics speak for themselves and most people in prison are raised by single mothers and in Canada being born to a single mother means poverty.


LW   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann,

I like you, I think you are just misunderstood.


Lynn   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I wish Ann could take Joy's place.


Teresa, Pennsylvania   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

The only people that are buying those 7 best sellers are her Republican friends. Ann Coulter hears herself talk and declares its the truth because she heard it.


Connie   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I am from Argentina, lived in USA for 15 years. Listened lots of Rush with my husband, while driving in the car. We are democrat and liberal. LATELY RUSH IS UMBEAREABLE


Deb Lefever   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

How dare Ann say that it is better for the adopted child when they are adopted. My brother and I are both adopted and we were beaten and very, very badly abused by our adoptive mother. It has scarred us for life.


brie   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Is this woman crazy. who does she thinks she is? I'm a single mom of a 16 year old boy and i'm doing a great job raising him even though it has been challenging at times. She even went as far to say that it would be better for Bristol Palin to give her baby up for adoption. She's totally out of her mind.


Curt   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Wow !!! Joy Behar? Was Rikki Lake busy? Ann is trashing her.


Judy   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann Coulter makes sense. Joy needs to go to her day job!!!


lee   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Is Ann's eyelash falling off.. or is she just happy to see me? (wink-wink 😉


Dick Brotzman   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann is only about 20 times as bright as Joy, your CNN host. Ann is also more honest, clear-headed, and articulate. FACE IT!! She is so right on her topics, as well!


BRYAN RENEHAN   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Bryan Renehan and his wife thoroughly enjoyed tonight's show with Ann Coulter. Joy has to work a little harder if we are to believe if she doesn't want to punch Ann in the face after each question she asks her!!! Go, Ann, Go- WE LOVE YOU!!!


kent   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann is AWESOME!


Tracy   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I may not agree with everything Ann Coulter says, but at least she is smart and prepared. Joy appears even dumber than normal. She's constantly interrupting and is not prepared. I can't watch her anymore. ugh!!!


z3k3   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Does Ann have a boyfriend? She's so high strung. I hate to say it but maybe she just needs...a guy?


Bruce   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann,

If you want to reduce the prison population caused by single moms, you will federally fund abortions


bill   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

You couldn't find a more flattering picture of Ann? Come on... Joy should let Ann actually finish answering the question before interupting with here own commentary... this isn't the Veiw.


Val   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann is honest and smart!! I love that she is not afraid of the idiots out there, including Joy!!!


glenn   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Thanks for having Ann on your show! She makes good sense about 90% of the time (and therefore was a perfect complement to Joy, who makes sense about 10% of the time.)


Brenda Carley   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I think Ann C. is the best! She tells it like it is! Go Ann!!!!!


tom   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Hooray for Ann they should put her on the View those gals would never stand a chance! Go ANN!


Elisabeth   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Yawn. Ann you bore me.
You are so predictable.


G.R.   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

electric cars, DINKY?!!!!!!!!|

I'm sorry, but it's not a question of believin pollution when you can SEE IT?
Just like all the people like you ANN, you'll see there's no planet one day, and you'll want it back. BUT TO GET YOU HAVE TO GIVE,
and there's no giving in GREED- COME ON!

Where the hell is her mind? DID SHE LOSE IT?
come on....
look at how many people think you're saying crap.
If you're doing this to sell books, you're immoral. if you believe in this, you're dumb as (fill in the blank with anything you like)


Justin   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Ann, you are brilliant. Keep up the fight.


Lynda Dusich   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I am so utterly offended by Ann Coulter! She downgrades single mothers and this enrages me! My husband was raised by a single mother in the projects of inner city Louisville, KY. His woman was addicted to drugs and he had every reason for turning out bad. But, he didn't! He's now a medical school graduate and very respected practicing physician. I myself was raised by a single mother and I am a teacher and nursing student. We BOTH turned out fine and have or single mothers to thank for that! So there – Ann! You are WRONG AGAIN!

Larry, I NEVER miss your show, but if you have this vile woman on again I will stop watching forever.


justme   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

She says she's popular? She's a pompous obnoxious woman who's popularity has come only from all who don't like her. Just another whiny woman wanting attention.


jay latner   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I love Ann.
I think she is not only hot but next to Joy she is looks super smart......You go girl


Lisa Green   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I would never watch Larry King when Joy Behar is hosting except for one time – when Ann Coulter is the guest.

Thank you Ann for your honesty and even your outrageousness... It helps bring to light the points that noone on CNN or most of the other media speaks about. I applaud you Ann


linda   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I LOVE ANN, I CANT STAND JOY, AT LEAST ANN HAS THE FACTS, JOY IS THE LIBERAL MEDIA, THE VIEW NEEDS TO GET RID OF JOY


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Joy is more hollow than the tree infront of my house...take her cue cards away she is nothing at least Ann has true correct and insightful thoughts.....


Michele   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I'm a single mother who has raised my daughter by myself for 16 years. I am college educated, a published writer and a model. I have no family and have done it all alone, and have always taken care of my child while overcoming adversities. There is no way my child would have been better of without me and I have always cared for my child and put her first. How dare this woman, Anne Coulter, make such horrible judgments about single mothers. Single mothers are strong, resilient, intelligent women. Blame the fathers who don't care for their children. Not the hard working women.


todd   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Joy is a very bad interview person, no reason to be rude to the quest all the time, why not interview Ann so we can learn more about her, not interegate her ??????


Celeste   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I had no idea who Ann Coulter was, but thoroughly enjoyed listening to her. I always believed our budget surplus under President Clinton was 'on paper'. It was a pleasure to hear it being said by someone else.

I think the interview would have been better if she & Ms. Behar stayed away from all the sexual inuendos.


camelia   February 19th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I read her book and I think she is right. Common sense!
Love her !


Cathie   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Joy – I've watched you for years and respect you – please just let her answer your questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best Regards

Cathie


Tracy   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Not a fan of Ann by any means but this is one of the most unprofessional interviews I have seen. There has to be someone else out there to fill in for Larry. He deserves better than this.


Chris   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

ANN IS SO MUCH SMARTER THAN JOY.

ANN KNOWS WHAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT AND USES CREDIBLE REFERENCES.

JOY IS SO MUCH WEAKER IN HER ARGUMENTATION.

JOY CAN BARELY READ THE TELEPROMPTER – ANN KNOWS HER FACTS


randy   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Randy from Florida: Ann is great, she tells the truth and the liberal media hates it...especially JOY


terry donnelly   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

ANN YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!


Diane   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Love Joy! Ann...not so much. They should have a show together!


lisa   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I love to listen to you Ann, watched you on Hanity before. Joy needs to shut her mouth and let the guest talk. OMG she is so annoying.


Jude   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Good for you Ann! Keep debate and democracy alive!!!


greg   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Why not the whole hour? Very stimulating but too short. Ms. Coulter is an excellant guest and presents a great opportunity for us to examine critical issues.


Christy   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I can not believe that Ann Couter said about single mothers. With her conservative beliefs she is saving herself for marriage. All singel mothers should boycott anything she has written and or appeared on.


Barbara Hicks   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter and I think she does a great job of making Joy look as ignorant as she is. I saw the View the day Ann was on and all of them were very rude to Ann Coultef. Barbara was as Ann described.
Thank you,
Barbara Hicks


Cindy   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Way to go, Ann!!! I love you and I love the fact that you are more than holding your own with Joy!!


Endy Madukwe   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter....I think people should make sense of what she is saying – she is telling the truth in its most brutal fashion.


Susan Langdon   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Joy,

Why don't you shut up and let your guest speak. I didn't tune in to hear you, I tuned in to hear Ann.

Susan


Robert   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Wow! That is one crazy woman! Who on Earth made her famous? I have to admit it is fun to watch her (like a train wreck) but it scares me that some people might actually be listening to her.


Daniel Noventa   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I've recently hear of Ann Coulter, and laughed a lot about her comments regarding science and the fossil records. I'm glad we have people like her on Earth; almost as good as a scientists. She looks for gaps in science and helps scientists fill them. Then she throws a comedy skit about creationism, I almost feel out of my chair laughing at her comments. I would never purchase her books though, I'd rather find something intellectual to read.


Vic   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Joy please take it easy on Ann Coulter! Although I agree with your points of view generally speaking, you are doing a disservice to the liberal cause.
Ann is a good lady regardless of her vitriole....leave her to selling books as she does so brilliantly. She is a very smart lady who has an acid tongue... I actually admire her and like her.


Paul   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Its a shame that the Right cant see how wrong they have been for the last 8 years. Ann Coulters opinion on the issues is so far to the right, she makes the Left liberals look like Independants.


Judy Fegley   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Love Ann Coulter! Finally someone who stands up to Joy Behar.....unlike the ladies of The View! Give it to her Ann and Larry, please NO MORE JOY BEHAR!!!


bg   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann Coulter ROCKS! She kicked Joy's butt. Joy was on the attack but did not have the facts on her side. Joy was anxious, angry and it showed. Ann was calm, cheerful and right on everything, especially her remarks about Rush Limbaugh. You go girl!


Beth   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I so appreciate Ann! I love her wit and articulation. Have her on MORE!


Linda   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I'm a single mom of a 10 year old that I adopted and take great offense at Ann's continued bashing of single mothers. My daughter is a straight A student, an accomplished athlete, has been given leadership awards at school every year, and is compassionate and kind. Thank God she'll never grow up to be Ann Coulter – a woman who obviously grew up spoiled and a snob like the majority of her classmates in New Canaan.


Jane   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Excellent program tonight, thanks to Ann Coulter's presence and Larry King's absence.


Stephen William Foyle   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

We LOVE her (NOT sexually) she really makes sense!!


Kristi   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Larry, if you were going to have Ann Coulter on your show, THANKS for having Joy Behar do the interview! Joy is so funny interviewing this opinionated right-wing conservative lunatic! This is by far the best episode ever. But, make sure Ann has taken her AD/HD meds for airing. She's giving me a migraine. She's very shrill.


Barbara Kiker   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Like Ann, ditch Joy!


Michael   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Hey I just wanted to say I own Ann's book "If Democrats had any Brains, They'd be Republicans," and I just want to say that I think she is an amazing writer, and person, and that I wish more Republicans had to the guts to get on T.V. and defend our views as good as she does. Thank you so much Ann for never giving up on our great and amazing party!


Saju   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann, i listen to rush and i hate him. He is not only rude/abusive. He is a lair too. One of his shows he said Ozon O3 is not a gas!. Another time, he was making fun of obama for pronouncing Pakistan diffrently, which by the way is the correct way to pronounce it!. He is pissed that Obama not speaking Pakistan in American accent? Pakistan is not a American name its Asian!


Larry Totman   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann.
Just got your book and finished chpt 1. Love it and you. I've seen you on Bill O'riley and your great and right.

Thanks for wrighting what it right.


Kimberly Marcum   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann Coulter is the most ridiculous person I have ever listen to in my life. Her remarks about the 911 widows is unexcusable. She sounds like a terrorist, who clearly hates most Americans. Talk about extreme, she will attack anyone who doesn't think like her.


Timothy Cavanaugh   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

When are we going to see Joy be objective? She promised that she could be objective and not biased. She is so closed minded.


Jamie   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Joy, please tell me you're not hosting for long. I can't watch the view because you're on there, and now you're ruining Larry King Live.


Mr. Smith   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

You know ... my daddy taught me not to say anything if I couldn't say anything nice. Sooooo ... I'll just say, "I Love Joy Behar". Larry ... have her back more ... I love her spirit!


Pam   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I like Anne. She doesn't use an edit button on her comments, sometimes you cringe but most times she's right. Joy, I love you on the view but wow, you are not good at this. Read the stimulus bill and get back to us....it is terrible and not good for our Country. It rewards people for failing. Read it and shut up


George Gomez   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann you are so on the money. Too bad Joey is incapable of an original thought, otherwise this may have been fun to watch. Joey is out of her league when conversing with you.


LED   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Ann would say and write anything to get her book sold. She is definitely living in a bubble and I can see why she isn't married.


Garett Reid   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

i don't understand how Ann can be so ignorant to whats going on right in front of her face. Didn't she just try to say every loves Rush cus everyone listens to his show. We are listening to Her right now but i don't care for her at all. And She is popular, i'll give her that but that doesn't mean everyone likes her. . . Controversy sells and i think she knows that and thats all she cares about. Remember Shindlers List was popular too but that doesn't mean everyone liked the holocaust!


andy bleek   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

if you ever have this hateful and spiteful coulture on again i promise you i will NEVER tune into larry king ever again.


Anonymous   February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I completely disagree with Ann Coulter's comment on single mothers. They definitely are NOT responsible for everything wrong in the world. My mother has single-handedly raised both me and my brother, and she has done a fantastic job. Furthermore, she is gay. Put that in a pipe and smoke it.


Malcolm Morrison   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Rarely does one see in the news so affluently such generizatons and topic's with no credible back up. You can't honestly believe what your saying!!


Kim Brouwer   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Wow....nothing like watching two women trying to out-do each other on live television...very vitriolic, unattractive to watch. Joy, I love you but sometimes the best response is 'NO response'....


Rod Legg   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

this women is a joke and i watch only because i laugh at the stupidity. Sending Anne into a interview is like watching a train wreck...you don't like it but you have to look.


Michelle   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Is there anyone out there that actually likes this woman? Its an embarrassment to refer to her as a woman...she has absolutely zero feminine qualities and is just a horrific human. Lovely that she makes money off of being venomous, bitter and insane! How can anyone take anything she says seriously? She makes ridiculous and seemingly ignorant comments about politics and our current situation....I can only assume from it that she is in fact......dilusional! Stop buying her books people........you heard her...she actually believes that she is well liked and popular


Maureen   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

What always amazes me about Ann C. is how she is the ultimate BS artist. She can jump from one incorrect, over-the-top analogy to the next and thinks if she keeps repeating it, it is true. And, she can never admit she is wrong. This is called a narcissist personality disorder. She is as boring as she has always been by selectively picking stats to back up her narrow-minded hypothesis. And, when actually challenged she keeps flipping that hair and tries to look hurt. She can't have it both ways.


Buck Mister   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Come on Ladies I know you are stageing this Get real i want to be entertained…Laugh. I love to hate you Ann…lol


Cristan   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I find Ann Coulter to be a refreshing breath of air on CNN. It would have been nice if Joy would have had a little more background in politics as every time she asked questions, she either cut Ann off because she didn't understand the answers or didn't really care to hear them. Understanding anything other than the far left is really not one of her priorities, it would seem. If anyone was antagonistic in this interview, it was the one sadly standing in for Larry.


James in Kamiah Idaho   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

oldasnew February 19th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

James personal responsibility about republicans. Look at what the democrats are doing. Bringing welfare back. Helping people out that were to stupid to read a contract. Obama cabinet that can not pay there taxes. Talk about responsibility democrates need to get some!

James... I have, and the republicans are by far the worst offenders... so afraid of promoting proper education tht they undereducate people who then don't understand, because they have been forced into ignorance by greedy and callous republicans, just how invasive the contracts were. and no... the republicans need to get some.

First responsible move you can make... arrest George Bush.

Period... you KNOW he's a criminal... KNOW... and yet you let him off the hook. You fools cant' even admit Liddy was a criminal and Nixon was a criminal, prefering instead to call such obvious criminals picked on and misunderstood.

So don't patronize us. We're arent' interested in giving greedy useless democrats either, but the examples within the republican party are much greater. read a history book.


Josie   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Joy is acting like an ass in this attack so called interview.
Why is Ann Coulter not allowed to have her own thoughts?
How pompus of Joy to think only her opinion counts.
Ann tried to answer her questions when she got a chance.
Joy GROW UP!


Sonja Strong   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter! I want to get her book and read it. It is so refreshing to hear someone speak without editing every word that comes out of their mouth for fear of what the liberal media might do to them. It's refreshing to hear the truth!!


Sue Miller   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

You should have given Ann the full hour, you screwed up. She is absolutely terrific!!!!!!!


Victor   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

the shear volume of stupidity that comes out of her mouth is enough to fill an entire library.


ALwazulady09   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

This lady is an idiot with her big droopy eyes and those ridiculous huge ears, she argues more than make any since.. She just gave me an late night headache. I am glad the host tonight did not say the name of what is more than likely a ridiculous book.


nancy   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Great job Ann!! Love the way you shut her down! You speak your mind with such confidence and knowledgable class. Thanks for saying all the things I wish I had the opportunity to say! Keep it up.


Greg House   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

ann is a complete close minded moron she is so self absorbed and she gets so defenceive when she is wrong she shouldnt talk about things she has never expierience(good sex)


Lester   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I LOVE Ann Coulter – she is intelligent, clear headed, and direct. If you actually listen to what she says and takes things in context, it's impossible not to agree with her.


pf   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I think Joy did a terrible job vis-a-vis Larry at conducting an interview of Ann. It was far too much like a battle of wills than the normal smooth interview approach that Larry conducts. Joy is a disaster for Larry King.


Jack   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

When the country needs some thoughtful solutions to our problems along comes Ann to spew forth nothing insightful, thoughtful or helpful. Ann simply goes for shock value stupid stuff. Ann is only looking for more money from her entertainment value. Too bad. She might actually have a brain in there but she is devoted to insane talk.


Cynthia Strader   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

It would be nice if Joy would Let Ann finish a sentence!
She's completely beating up on Ann when she's simply trying to answer questions! Why can't they agree to disagree.


solomon   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Get them Red neck views off of the show and go back to sly FOX


Loyce Mason   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Joy, Joy, Joy. Please give Ann a chance to respond. Were you not taught any manners? You are the host, she is the guest. and to Ann–Keep on fighting the good fight, you are being heard even though some "shrill" interviewers try to shout above you. Thanks


Clyde Williams   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Gloria Olrad is that woman from Rat Race. She's a crazy freak!


Steve Mikulich   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

The Democratic party should be thankful for Anne Coulter, because she represents just how disgusting the Republican party is. With someone like her speaking on behalf of Republican's the Democrat's will be sure to maintain their majority.

Thanks Anne!


Mia Maurer   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Ann Coulter is so incredible ignorant I find it hard to believe she is not putting on an act to promote herself. I cannot believe someone would truly have these opinions and not suffer from some kind of mental disfunction. I truly hope she seeks the help she needs!


Ed Hassay   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I think Anne should marry Rush Limbaugh and move to an island with the folks who listen to him


OmahaGirl   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I cringe when I hear Ann Coulter speak. For such a highly educated woman, she is very uneducated.


Ted   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

This just in!!!! Ann is going to name her first born "LIBERAL"


Phil Janvier   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Listening to Ann Coulter speak about giving up children for adoption as a lottery ticket lets me believe that she may just be retarded she is way out of touch on how the adoption system works and leaving children in the care of the state is not the ticket but often a cop out and she needs to be re-evaluated on her views and people need to stop reading her garbage.


J Foshee   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a PATRIOT. Not only does she intelligently break down the issues and describe the political happenings in the U.S., she provides a well needed balance to the "left-leaning' media. I've read (I think) everything she's written and am excited to continue.

-J Foshee

Jeremy   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I don't know much about the personal life of Ann.... I am curious what her upbringing was. Was she raised in a happy home...big family...no siblings..? Just curious. She reminds me of girl from my hometown that was very well off, always had everything she ever really needed, was dead set on making people notice how witty she was instead of staring at her curves and blond hair, and always ran around quoting things that her 80 year old Republican racist grandfather would say...without ever really knowing what she was talking about. I'm just curious... has anything BAD ever happened to Ann Coulture? Does Ann Coulture, as intelligent as she is, believe in Evolutionary Biology?


Aleisha   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

IAlthough her comments are quite brash, they're empty. It amazes me how proud Ann Coulter is of her ignorance. I was raised by a single mother and am a productive, succesfull citizen of this country. I wonder why she only gives mention to single mothers and not single fathers?


frances   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Joy neds to come on as host without the chipon her shoulder or the attitude of "I'll get you before you get me". NO, no one likes everyone. Ann C. held her own tonight if she had been allowed to talk, nd Larry would never have been such a rude host.
Joy is good on VIEW and needs to remain there~


Pati   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Ann C is still living in a fantasy world. Can't wait for her to strike reality.
Her arrogance is very disturbing.


nelson   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Please get this woman her own show! (Anne Cooulter) Finally someone who speaks out with conviction and actually backs up everything she says with facts. And makes no bones about whether it offends you or not. I think we have all had enough of the Joyce Behars, D A Hughleys, who spout off about stuff they THINK hey know something about. Shut them UP! If we had to listen to people like Anne more often maybe some of us would get our sh– together and start taking responsibility for our actions. What a breath of fresh air!


ma   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I like Ann! Joy brings too much of her own opinion to this interview... this is not Ann on the View!!
I came to this show to watch Ann (unlike the rest of you). She has very interesting points to make- much like the popular 'Freakanomics' book. She is willing to put herself out there and say things that many people won't say.
Pull your head out of your butt... take a step back... and honestly think about what she is saying.
I am Catholic- I would never have an abortion myself- HOWEVER- as the Freakanomics book points out- when abortion was legalized crime rates went down (huh- wonder why.... single moms had an option!!)


Sandra   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Chapeau to Miss Behar! Great job on the Coulter interview. Give that woman a more frequent spot on Larry King or, dare I say, her own show...


Robert Rial   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I find it incredible that we provide air time to Ann Coulter and permit her to continue to insult the intelligence of the American people. Ann Coulter and Rush Limbach are two primary reasons why the GOP is down and why I changed my party affiliation.


Kathi   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Joy,
You need to stop arguing and start interviewing. Also, you should try shutting your trap and actually listening to what Ann is saying....you may learn something. CNN.....get someone who knows how to interview. Send Joy back to the view with the other weirdo's......Elizabeth being the exception.


sheila   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I just want to make a comment about single mothers; why aren't more shows like The View, Larry King, Oprah doing programs about the mental well being of children raised by single moms! It is well known that children only fully develop mentally/emotionally healthy when raised by a man and a woman together. It may sound old-fashioned but it is true. Study after study proves it; listen to children that don't have a father in their life and they never get over it. They long for that the rest of their lives; it leads to misery, drug dependency, criminal behavior. This affects all of society and now more than ever. It is ruining our society.


Elisabeth   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Atlanta Georgia does not love you Ann.


Ellia   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Please do us a favor DO NOT HAVE JOY BEHAR SIT IN FOR LARRY. We already have enough of her in The View. She is a bitter woman who is not a fair or courteous interview like Larry. She was so rude at Ann Coulter, not a real host like Larry would be. I'm very disappointed at her. Please let her know. Please do not invite her as host ever again!


Chelle   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Hats off to you Joy! Especially given the nut job that you were interviewing.


sme   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Are you kidding me! Who is this red head again? Well what a complete witch. Let sombody talk already. Ann is an extremely smart woman, and your questions and interupting of her answers seemed extremely unclassy. WOW


Susan   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

My nine month old grandson is being raised by a single mom – because his dad, my youngest son died 7 months before the baby was born. I wonder if Ms. Coulter thinks he should have been put up for addoption...and completely destroy me and the baby's mom. The baby is unbelievably loved, well taken care of and a joy to all around him. Ms. Coulter is a monster.


Suzanne   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I heard Joy say this morning on "The View" that she would have to be a "better listener", when she hosted Larry King Live tonight. While I'm not a fan of Ann Coulter, could Joy just take a breath for a moment (as she's constantly telling AC to do) and do a better job as an interviewer. She's SO angry, aggressive and combative. Perhaps these are good qualities in a guest, but as a host, it's just plain annoying. I'm exhausted!!


Steve   February 19th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

WOW!! I didn't think you could find a more radical liberal than Larry. It's good to see Ann put Joy in her place. Joy shows just how dumb she is every time she opens her mouth Ann only helps expose Joy for the radical liberal that she is.


Chris   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann and Joy are both ideologues. Their antithetically polaristic views are exactly the pernicious ideologies that can harm America. True bipartisanship and political moderation are the only things which can guarantee stability.


Bryan CA   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I like Ann Coulter! She's awesome! She speaks her mind and best of all, she has facts and valid information to back herself up! Its refreshing to see someone who has their own views and isn't simply influenced by the media and what the federal government wants the American to know. Keep it up!!


jennie   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann is always good to hear. There is obviously a liberal bias in the media and Joy clearly doesn't like having that pointed out to her. Ann is right about the charge to socialism of the latest bailout bill! Carry on Ann!!!!


G Biehl   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I must turn this off. I cannot bear to hear Joy talk any more.


LSMCCOY   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I like Ann Coulter. She has the guts to say it like it is and she takes a lot of criticism.


Tolerance   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a little over the top, but as a conservative African-American Christian I find myself on the same side of issues with her more often than not. She's like that animated puppet James Carville, outrageous enough to get the other side boiling and in some cases so far to the extreme that even those on their side have to distance themselves...


Jane   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

How does she feel about me being a single mom due to my husband's death when our kids were young..........should I have given them up for adoption? Back off Ann, you're hurtful in some of your generalizations.


Gerri Hildebrand   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Way to go Joy! Ann Coulter's view of the world sends shivers up my spine, in part because the venomous views she holds are shared by others. You held your ground well. I believe you should replace Larry King who no longer researches his topics and then has to acquiesce.


Sonja   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann Coulter's current demeanor is a disgrace to the female gender, regardless of the 7 million books sold, as a real conservative presents with a quieter more gentle spirit that reflects the values that conservatives claim to embrace, such as love & forgiveness; characteriestics that Ann needs to embrace rather than such a confrontational spirit that accomplishes nothing but hate!!!


Deb   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I like Ann. Joy, your not going to get a foot up on her. She's too smart and quick for you.


Ann Blanks   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann Coulter is not PC but says what most of us really think. Kudos to saying it like it really is.
The proof is in the pudding. My husband and I like Ann Coulter.
A married mother and educator.


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

very sad how NBC, ABC, CBS not one reported on the muslim tv station owner beheading his wife in buffalo because she wanted a divorce...are we scared to offend muslims? thank god for fox news.....the real and only truth in the united states media... please..then go back home....! USA!


Carl   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Coulter is wrong. People do HATE her. I know many that do.
I am a person and I do!
Her friend Rush Limbaugh was busted with Viagra written in someone elses name returning from the Dominican Repulican a country known to cater to pedophiles.
Does she know if Limbaugh is a pedophile or is he just a sex addict?
Or is he just doing nothing at all?


Mike, Syracuse NY   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Joy needs to let Ann speak. Enough with the drive by interviews. She did the same attack crap to McCain on The View.

Interesting statistic on black single mothers. I've thought for years that if some personal responsibility were exercised, like not getting knocked up and staying in school, the racial economic disparity would disappear.


trish, NC   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

sheesh, is there anything or anyone that Ann Coulter DOES like? It looks like she's just wanting media attention, and she got it...


Katelyn   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Libs love single mothers!! Im working hard to make my life better by going to college. Im not pregnant, and of course I dont get any help from the government! My mother just lost her tax break for sending me to college because of $300. I agree with Ann! Where is my help?


Rick   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

WOW... This is the interview of the week!!!! I Love it. If only Larry could be this forward.... Joy really can stand on her own 2 feet when taking on these far right conservatives and getting her point accross. And she can make Ann look bad at the same time. She is great.
On the other hand, I cant say anything good about Ann. I do not agree with anything she says. She is just aweful.


Amy Oddo   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I HATE ANN COULTER!!! Please let her know not everyone loves her & buys her books. I intentionally turn her book covers over when I see them in a store. She is so RUDE!! If she was more respectful of her interviewers she might be easier to take.


kaleb   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I agree with most of Ann Coulter's views. She's cool by me


Nanc y   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Somewhere inside of Ann Coulter there must reside some level of intelligence. The whole ruse of being such an extremist and getting into all this unproductive name calling has to be getting old for her. If she's really serious about contributing to American society how about putting the inflammatory language away and sit down and SERIOUS discuss what is happening in this country. The statements she's making are so nonsensical and far fetched that she has become marginalized. Frankly, I'm surprised she could even score a LK interview. This country is facing REAL problems, people are losing their homes, jobs and savings. We need to turn our attention to people who truly want to work on improving this country's future for EVERYONE. Coulter's brand of banter is divisive and worthless. Isn't her 15 minutes up YET?


julie swan   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Hey Larry.....Really enjoyed listening to Ann Coulter...Not so much Joy. But anyway I never really tune into CNN anymore because it seems to be so one sided...Thanks for the excuse to watch!! Julie swan\Rochester, ny


Joni Cole   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Dear L. K. Show,
I love Ann Coulter she tells it like it is....she's a great guest on any show and does her homework.
P. S. Please say Hi to my Dad, "Carl" I know he's watching 'cause he loves this show.
Thank-you,
J. Cole


Shannon   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I think Ann Coulter is one of the worst human beings on the planet. I just can't say enough negative things about her, but Joy Baher was impossible to watch. People who interview other people shouldn't be rude and obnoxious. It was painful to watch. I know I should have turned, but it was like watching a train wreck, I thought they might slap one another.


Michele   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Perhaps Anne should read up on the statistics on sexual abuse. One out of three girls are sexually abused, one out of ten boys are sexually abused. Gee Anne, I wonder what correlation there is with girls who have been abused and teenage moms? One could conclude that men are responsible for raising criminal children. Anne, perhaps if you really thought about things before spewing your pathetic opinion just to sell books, you might be a tad interesting. But your NOT.
Michele


Joe in Hunstville   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I love you Ann Coulter. God bless you. Keep up the good fight .


G.R.   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

YOU SPEAK OF GOD WHEN ALL SHE PROFESSES IS GREED

COME ON. REALIZE WHAT PEOPLE LIKE THIS DO. I DON'T AGREE BEACAUSE IT'S IMMORAL


Tasha   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

So my frustration with this (ignorant) woman (Ann Coulter), is that she has no full perspective on what it means to BE a single mother. I am a successfull business owner, about to be honored by the Governor in 2 weeks for my determination and drive in developing my business. The fact that I AM a single mother, adds that much more validity to my claim, that NOT EVERYONE is designed the same way, and NOT EVERYONE has the ability to handle the pressures of single parent-hood. That said, don't make assumptions, and don't minimize the dedication a single parent (not just mother) has to their children!


Mary Ostroum   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I am a loyal Ann Coulter fan–the woman has beauty and brains. She shows incredible intelligence and knowledge–true, she has an "edge" to her at times that I think keeps her in the center of controversy but I think the Ann Coulter haters are not in her intellectual league adn this frustrates and angers them.


nicole   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Wow Ann, listening to you speak affirms why so many people supported Obama. Regardless of whatever your opinions may be on the media influence perhaps most of the liberal population is indeed more open minded, more intelligent, and more eager for change than the postergirl's for bigotry and hatred that you expose yourself to be.


Simrat   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Ann,

I don't remember a single thing that Bush did in last two years of his presidency. to boost the economy or help the financial crisis. Obama came in and took a step with his stimulus package. Republicans can't even shut up and wait to see what good will this Bill do. I am sorry but Republicans are the ones who got us here in the first place. Let the man do his job and try something.


Jeanne   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I love Ann! I tuned in tonight just to hear her. Joy got trounced!


ashlie   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

This broad is crazy!! I mean seriously, she thinks that children of single parents should be given up for adoption?? What the hell is up with that!!! My mom has always been a single parent and I am now 22 yrs. old and turned out 150x's better then alot of those born to a married couple. Come on she is ridiculous!!!


Lynn   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

How dare you make such comments against single mothers! My sister and I were raised by a single mom, a mother who was taken from panama and dumped in this country by my child molesting father. She came to this country, worked very hard to obtain her degree in nursing and keep her children in private school while she worked herself weary. I have just graduated from college and obtained a degree in Information Technology with a 3.8 GPA, my mother just completed her masters degree in nursing, my sister is still attending nursing school and although she has a learning disability she is managing just fine. You need to open your eyes and adjust your attitude towards single moms. I am also now a single mom doing as my mother did for me. I married the man who I became pregnant with and he did nothing but treat me horribly and got another woman pregnant while I was with him. How can you sit there and tell me that I should give my little one up for adoption?!?!?!? I


Will Hechter   February 19th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Kudos on for handling Ann Coulter like the bigot she is


Caroline   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I'm not sure how many policies I agree with Coulter on, but tonight she was able to make Joy look terrible. Coulter kept her cool and answered the questions she was given –or she would have if Behar hadn't constantly interrupted her, cut her off, and ask her circular questions. Behar has a lot of experience in the journalism industry, but her interview tonight was incredibly unprofessional.


Vivian   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Joy needs to, read more or stay in entertainement not in politics.Ann, hooray to you. though i do not agree with the throwing of words retarded, i admire you. You are smart.


Steve   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I think Ann Coulter is right on target when she said that the so called victims are the victimizers. I am a bill collector and talk to these people all day long. People living off the system are the ones that make everyone else pay more in taxes. They are the ones who make life more difficult for the working class.


Bill Senko   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I not only like Ann Coulter, but if I was not a happily married man I would be married to her. She thinks just like me. I would classify her as a true American Patriot." God Bless America and God Bless Ann Coulter. If you Liberals would take off your rose colored glasses, you would see where our once great country is headed. Liberalism is going to be our downfall and Liberals will be the reason for the eventual second American Revolution.


marylee   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann tells the truth, why can't so many people take it?


Melanie C.   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I am disgusted by Joy Behar's openly attacking Ann Coulter. She doesn't appear to listen to any of Ann's answers to her questions and is focused only on discrediting or putting her down. Could she possibly be any more biased against Ann Coulter? Not to mention that Joy Behar is obviously unknowledgeable about politics in general–what a poor choice of interviewer. Surely you can do better next time.


Romell in Sacramento   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

IAnn Coulter , is a waist of perfectly good air time.


Johnny Spurlock   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I am Ashamed...Embarrassed...and Appalled that CNN would lower themselves to have Ann Colter on Larry King!!!!

This is by all means is "Satan In The Flesh" !!!

Her Vile attitude creates hatred, and uglyness in the same way the
"Big Fat Idiot" Rush Limbaugh spreads throughout the Nation.

20 Million listeners to a radio show doesn't support the idea of moving forward to help our nation come together as "ONE".

Ann's Parents should hang their head in shame that they even gave birth to such a "Devil Spawn"


Rodney in Silver Spring   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I know where Ann is going, about Single Mothers and the 80% inmates raised by single Mothers. Ms Ann Conservative just be straight with your thinking-They are blacks.


Janet   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Joy - great job. Ann is impossible to interview and listen to. She is so condescending and never lets you finish a sentence. I give you a great deal of credit for being willing to interview her. Tell Larry to let Rush interview her from now on so we can listen to people that are more respectful and postive.


Steve Nolan   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I Love Ann...
She is the best... she hits the nail right on the head.

What infuriates Joy and the rest of the Far Left is that you can't argue effectively against her logic.

She is right up there with Joseph Mc Carthy, Ronald Reagan, and Rush Limbaugh in her ability to deceipher the Leftist/Communist Agenda/


Julie   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I was thrilled to watch Anne take on the psysch Joy. Joy has has the same lame hairdo forever now plus she can't sit still!! This woman doesnt represent anyone I know or will ever know!


Glenn   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I've heard of Ann Coulter and have not paid much attention to her. Now iv'e seen her and her views.OMG! She is from another planet.!
Please let her go back to the planet where her and Rush Limbaugh are from.


Cricket   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann did a fantastic putting this Yenta in her place. What a lame attempt Joy made to try and beat down a guest. Interviewers are supposed to be factual and knowledgeable about the topics which Ann clearly unveiled that Joy had neither of those characteristics.

horray ann is gone hope it was a one way ticket


jeana   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Joy didn't let her answer when she had a good point. Kept cutting her off and tried to make her look like a fanatic too bad I hear and listen I think president Obama will destroy this country the only thing in this stimulus bill is local,state and federal jobs the liberals are slowly taking over this nation. Look at all the people Obama has recommended who has nothing but dishonesty,liars and back stabbers. It shocks me he went on and on about his "change" and we got nothing but the same old same old bull!


C.ANN   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

ANN..JUST LIKE RUSH...LOVE TO HEAR THEMSELVES TALK..WOULD NEVER ADMIT WHEN THEY ARE WRONG..LIKE THEY WERE DURING THE ENTIRE ELECTION PROCESS
AND THE REAL ROOT OF THIER PROBLEM IS THAT THEY ARE RACIST THAT DID NOT RECEIVE ENOUGH ATTENTION AS CHILDREN..SO NOW THEY JUST RUN OFF AT THE MOUTH ..SAYING NOTHING


Katie   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann Coulter is much smarter than I thought. She has made me a fan. I am very impressed with the way that she is handling Joy. Joy is being mean-spirited. Joy is not being a gracious host. Ann has been invited on the show and now Joy is being very mean. This is the same as inviting soemone over for dinner and then treating them as if they crashed the party.
Larry King would never treat anyone the way Joy is on his show. I am very disappointed that Larry King would allow Joy to tarnish his brand. She is not a good steward of his chair or micrphone. Same on Joy and same on Larry King. He should apologize to Ann for the way Joy is treating her. Ann Coulter is an invited guest, not a crasher. Joy is very rude!


Billy Abrams   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I watched Ann Coulter on the view and was very disappointed in how they seemed to attack her if she mentioned something that they didn't agree with.
Joy Behar kept the attack running tonight, she was a terrible host and a poor representative of Larry King. Larry asks intelligent,thought-provoking questions...we certainly didn't see that from Joy tonight.
Good Job Ann!!


Gary   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann handle "The Assault" well. I certainly don't agree with Ann on all points but Joy was on an all out attack from the get go. She said at the end that it was nice talking to Ann but she was talking to Ann...she was talking "at" Ann. I've usually enjoy Joys chats and wit...but this was pathetic journalism. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Slow down Joy and INTERVIEW NOT attack your guest


Brian Harrigan   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Ann destroy Joy...Behar is a perfect illustration of the ignorance that is rampant in the left wing...Thank you, CNN.


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Joy Behar .......... I don't know how you do it I could never sit there and talk to her.


trish   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I love Ann's cause! I think the reason people have a hard time with her is her delivery. She is very passionate about what she is saying. and quite frankly, as I am, FED-UP, and it can come off as argumentative. I do think it sometimes takes away from what she is saying because it makes people concentrate on that. It doesn't change the fact though, that what she says is TRUE!!!!!! Keep it up Ann!!!

by the way, I am a 36 yr. old hispanic female writing this.... not a 60 yr old white male that america tries to say the republican party is only made of.


Valerie   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann is AMAZING, if you actually listen to what she says it's all true. She's brilliant and I would love to see any liberal debate with this woman. Democrats are so quick to blow her off but she's remarkable and makes a lot of sense when you listen. I was really glad to see her on Larry King.


Nona Harman   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann c. is a showman with a big troublesome mouth. Her conontation of seperating single mothers in to her classifications is absurd. The 80% of men in prison being raised by single parents are not classified by her specific index. Does she really think widows and divorced women are not factored in to that 80% statistic. She simply twist and turns words to make money for herself,no matter what harm she causes to anyone and everyone.


Dana   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Unfortunately Joy Behar is unable to mask her shear anger and vitriol toward Ann Coulter. If Behar would shut her yap and listen and then actually think about Coulter's points – if that's possible – she might find that Coulter is on to something. Instead Behar misses the point entirely and is so Pavolovian in her prescribed reaction that it becomes a pathetic display.

What Behar fails to see or is intentionally blind to or is just clueless about is that Coulter resonates with an enormous part of the population – not east coast NY libs nor west coast libs but in the heartland of this country. If Behar could get her nose out of the rarified air of liberalism and stop sneering she could see those are not ill bred illiterates, or the unenlightened. But that might be asking too much.

I will know to skip Larry King if Behar is hosting – no matter who the guest is. The anger is to palpable. Who needs it.


Melanie Yeager   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter. SHE SPEAKS the truth about the far left. Soon all the people on the liberal left and the liberal media, will be cashing their stimulus checks while those of us on the right still are heading off to work in the morning. This is so you guys can still believe the stimulus package is the right thing to do. Please tell me why the left wing thinks this is good. I want to keep my money I earn!


may bigsby   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I like Ann Coulter. She's very bright and unafraid to say what she thinks.


Ryan Texas   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

CNN is fantasy land.....Fox news is reality


remy reveyoso   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

I am a single parent ~ my oldest daughter is a genius!! she was talking at 6 months, walking at 7 mon. and reads on a 7th grade level in the 5th grade!
My second child is just as smart, beautiful and loves gymnastics!
& my 2 y/o can speak in english/ spanish & is a pro in early learning!

i feel sorry for you ann, your parents must have sent you off to a boarding school as they traveled the world! you seem so unloved. LMAO

am i right or am i judging you???


Dwayne   February 19th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Ann Coulter? Another example of expressing one's mind without regard for the effects. She need attention so much that she will say anything. Kinda like a Rush Lindbaugh in a dress, and given her cruel attitude as unattractive. Do not get me wrong, she is attractive, as long as she thinks before speaking. I guess if she had talent, she could be like certain entertainers with her "shock", cruel tongue. Poor Ann... Hope she studies Walter Winchell, and how his life ended.


Pat in Georgia   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

What a terrible excuse for an interview - looked like a shouting match to me. Signing off, Joy says, "it was nice talking to you." As she was the interviewer, wouldn't it have been more appropriate to say "...WITH you?"


Evie Smith   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

This woman is just awful. Something horrible must have happened to her as a child. Her and Limbaugh are the reason the republican party is shrinking so quickly. I have to hand it to her though, she isn't afraid to say what's on her mind– reguardless of how rediculous and un popular her views are.


Robin   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter. Joy Behar comes across as ignorant, nasty, and rude. She is only the latest in a long line of liberal interviewers who have tried to spear Ann, but Ann deflects it beautifully. Thank God for Ann Coulter. She has guts and it takes guts to stand up to these liberals, who are the most intolerant people on the planet.


bg   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

One more thing, for people on this blog who make physical insults – grow up .. Ann was great. She ran circles around Joy.


Vaughn   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

When you have Ann Coulter on, you certainly need a host smarter than Joy Behar-Ann kicked her backside and made Joy look stupid. Larry please find a smarter substitute or let Joy interview children or someone from the Zoo. Have someone as smart as your guest host them or it makes the host look very weak.


mommyghee   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy is too full of herself to even be embarrassed by her own questions and answers. Ann kept Joy on point and answered Joy's inane questions with class and style. This was a conversation between a pit bull and a poodle. Painful to watch.


Eric   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Ann represents all that has gone bad with reporting, book writing, the US and politics. It's no wonder the country is so polarized with people like her getting air time on CNN. Freedom of speach is fine, but her message is pure hate and rage with no substance – just making her rich while provoking an unprofessional debate. The best thing that could happen to all of us is if she was not provided any more interviews to promote her nonsense. Sad, sad, sad.


jackie kilpatrick   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy,
If you enjoy talking to Ann, you could have fooled me! You were very rude and defensive to her throughout the whole conversation! You were obviously attempting to make her and her book look bad. You appeared most stressed out! Shame on you!


Kathryn   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy, Joy, Joy. If you would hush up for once and let someone speak, which is why they are a guest. Ann Coulter made you look really silly, again. Too bad Larry didn't host tonight's program, although by having you host it, my opinion of Ann Coulter was elevated.


Cara   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I love you Ann! Keep writing your books. Anyone who thinks the stimulus bill is a good idea will be singing a different tune in about a year.


danny d   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

shes hot !


Debra   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I admit that I am not a big Ann Coulter fan but Joy Behar has serious anger issues...She seems like such an unhappy miserable person...She is such a negative person...and a whiner!!! Joy you can't Whine and Shine at the same time


sam   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I like hearing Ann and her viewpoints. Remember, America is the land of free speech. (for now anyway)

She is only presenting the other side that is now so often considered not "politically correct".

This country is in a mess and I don't care if the President were to be purple, no one person can fix it and the future of our country is very dismal.

Good for Ann for speaking her mind and following her own blue print.


DebbieKat   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I think people are to blame on BOTH sides of the foreclosure crisis. What about the BROKERS who wrote these loans up, especially the liar's loans. They KNEW they were writing crap loans. CNBC had an excellent program on this a few days ago: House of Cards. I recommend everyone watch it if they can. Yes, some people were stupid getting into these mortgages. But many were victimized, put in subprime loans when they QUALIFIED under standard mortgages. It's GREED, plain and simple. These bankers are the greediest people on the planet. After taking our tax money that was supposed to be used to give CREDIT, they used it instead to pay BONUSES. They need to see jail time. This is patently irresponsible behavior for public company executives. You don't take a bonus while you are tanking your company. Maybe they should all go under and we can start using more responsible sources of credit from places like credit unions. They don't seem to be anywhere NEAR in as bad shape as the banks.


Rick   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Didn't the Columbine killers come from a dual household??

McVeigh? Osama?


Jason K   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Unbelievable......You just don't "marry somebody" just for impregnating you. The divorce rate is high enough these days, and there are many reasons to get married and not to get married. But one of the biggest reasons NOT to get married would just about have to be just because somebody got you pregnant. If you are just going to give away your kid after having it, you might as well just have an abortion instead. I'll take abortion over adoption anyday. Try marrying for the right reasons, like love maybe......There is a thought......


Kathy Kersey   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Who's dumb idea was it to have Joy interview Ann? Joy's venom towards Ann is ugly and hard to watch. How about Ben Stein next time Larry can't be there for an interview with Ann, or is CNN into cat fights? Too bad Ann was too classy to respond with the same venom Joy was displaying.


Will Schmidt   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Hello from Canada.
I absolutely agree with Ann Coulter regarding "Single Mom Parents".
The statistics DO NOT LIE! When one looks at the disfunctional, confused and demented criminals who are serving time for serious, aggresive and violent crimes; one only need ask "Who raised these people"?


Landon   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Ann you are hot! Way to out-wit that selfish, liberal hag.

By the way, the reason conservative women have more orgasms is they sleep with real men.

Liberal women are more masculine than their liberal men.


Liz   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy should be commended for going to toe-to-toe with someone who refuses to listen to anyone's point of view and saying the things to Ann Coulter that few others would. Larry would have been too kind. I wasn't sure I heard the refrain often enough...how many books is Ann trying to sell? And, P.S. Ann, if anyone knows sex sells, you should. Your wardrobe choices and eyelash job are fab.


jose   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Putting Ann Coulter on your show tonight only serves one purpose: Ann Coulter! the conversation had no redeeming value-unless you include selling books. The only value I saw was Joy get under her skin....good job Joy! I say ship her #^& to Guantanamo!


Amy   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

You go Anne!! Tell it like it is!!!


Anthony   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Ann seeing as you know so much about everything from parenting to politics...why would you be wearing the same shirt on larry king live that you were wearing on the vue weeks ago...is money that tight...maybe you should get a real job say at walmart...I hear employees get 10 percent off LOL


Katrina   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy is so rude. Does she not know that when you interview someone she is suppose to ask them questions, not talk over them spouting her loud opinions. She is the worst interviewer in the history of TV. Larry could go out into the streets, find a homeless person and bring them in and they would do a better and more enjoyable interview than Joy. Her nasaly voice is annoying. The man that plays her on SNL looks better then she does. She consistantly showed her ignorance when she said that she wasn't a politically knowledgeable person and then she goes on a rant about politics spouting her liberal uninformed opinions. She is an idiot.


MSW   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Don't you hate having to give that whack job free publicity for her venomous books?


nancygreer   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Angela a CHRISTIAN...give me a break

TELL me how bad the REPUBLICANS were in a couple of years...you will wish BUSH was BACK


Kristine   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Thank you Ann for being so honest about the difficulties of single motherhood. As a former single mother (now married to a wonderful man) I know first hand how difficult it is and especially how hard it is on the child. The reality is the child is the one who suffers and while of course single parents should be supported for the sake of the children – as a society we need to be very honest and clear about the very sad consequences of this choice.


Judy   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Why is it that Joy can not take the heat when Ann talks negative about the loser democrats. I love Ann she justs tell it like it is!! I also love George Bush and his Christian beliefs!!


J.Mann   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Loved Ann Coulter! How refreshing...rarely watch LK live anymore because it's clear he and most of CNN are in denial that tour country is being carried DOWN to $#@% in a 'hand basket' by the socialistically inclined...Joy Behar being one of them. Could hardly tolerate even looking at Behar!


Goldie B   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I find Ann Coulter extremely offensive. However, Joy is making her look good because she comes across as a mean shrew who is not listening to the answers Ann gives and is instead is making ridiculous comments such as "just saying". What a terrible interviewer! Ann is making mincemeat out of her. Get someone on who is not hysterical and talking like a trashmouth! Ann needs to be interviewed by someone who is at least as intelligent as her and can refute her viewpoints with some knowledge rather than catiness. Give Joy a bowl of milk to go lap up in a corner.


Clyde Williams   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Joy, you're like a wonderful clone of Bette Midler. Although I don't agree with everything you say, I love you.


Kathy in Memphis   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Ann really gives blondes their a bad name. This women is stupid and I can't believe that Americans actually read her garbage. I endeavor to read good, uplifting and truth. I can't believe this woman is actually human.


Michelle in Kalama, WA.   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Ann Coulter, you may sell a lot of books, but I'll never buy one! You're a legend in your own mind... time to get over yourself! I just wish that you would answer questions without acting like you're being attacked here on LKL and on the View... come on and answer the questions without acting like they're out to get you. Too, not everyone that listens to Rush "loves" him... people like to have a rounded opinion AND are willing to listen to the other side. I listened to you and I do not like or agree with all of your opinions. You just have enough exposure to open your mouth and spout your caustic comments like Rush.


Karina Cesena   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

From a woman who had NO KIDS. Who are you to judge what other WOMEN should do to make divorce rate lower. You have no idea what other women go through to raise good kids. Not all go to jail or murder someone. No wonder you dont have any kids. No man would want some vindictive woman raising any kid. Were you abused as a child?

Also, The Duggar family had all their berrings straight and if their god wants them to have as many as they can then let it be. They are the United States BEST ROLE MODEL for how to keep a family together!!


beverly   February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I know why Conservative women have more orgasms than liberal women...

Conservative women know they are responible for their own orgasms and are not waiting for the government to provide them


kaleb   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

is it over? i was hoping to get an hour for Ann. She's so bold and telling it like it is....... Too bad !!! I am changing the channel


Malcolm Morrison   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

This is a news worthy interveiw? I'd rather have a cavity filled!! Ann makes me want to take a long trip abroad and pretend I'm from canada.


Linda English   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Yes there are some of us out here that HATE Ann Coulter. She is the most stupid, retarded, misguided human being I have ever seen. I bought one of her books many years ago, read the first chapter and threw it out. Unfortunately she still received the royalties from my purchase. I should have saved my money and donated to a foundation for single moms....which someday I wish upon her.....oh, but she is still single for a reason, her mouth. No one would ever want this insane women.


NH David   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Joy, it's terrific seeing you – always a treat. The only straight answer she told you is that Republican women have more orgasms. It's because they're greedy like all the rest. Liberal women will at least let the guy have one . . . . .

She really does have a distorted view of alot of topics. She did herself a disservice. I'd be happy to clue in the Republicans where they lost Americans. I wouldn't be sneaky about it either. I would be totally honest with them. The problem is they wouldn't believe the truth!


Elizabeth McFarlin   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Loved the interview with Ann Coulter. Joy Behar always seems so mad at the world but durng this interview she seemed to be "chomping at the bits" to get at Ann. It was one insult after the other with not one nice thing said. Joy met her match with Ann and it was nice to see that.


Cari   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

First of all..GREAT job Joy, I've always been a fan of yours. This Ann "woman" is a nut case. She can be very witty and intelligent but the way she spews her views makes her look tacky and "retarded" ( her word ).
Obama has been in office for a month, and she's already wrapped up his Presidency. Let's all NOT forget what a mess Bush left for him to clean up, and that Obama himself stated it would not be fixed in four years, period.. which is realistic.
Ann C. is just another " let me act like I know everything and use my big mouth to cover up when I do get cornered". Joy you mentioned she looked and rumor was, when she left The View she was pissed? Without a doubt she was, because you all were right and she wasn't. I was laughing over here when you asked about her dating life, and what type of man she likes. The better question would have been, what man can tolerate her? A mute/deaf man, with no political views and no electric car and has that whole " Yes dear, whatever you say dear" attitude is about all I am thinking can handle her. Either that or one that can purchase her a muzzle and attach it on a regular basis.


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Why cant we have guest that will give some incentives on how we can make out economy better and how we can create job. Or how we can help the people going into or are in foreclosure.

This is would make more sense then having this woman on the show who is obviously only into herself and only come out of her shell like the other gentlemen said before.

America is in a economic crisis and we have Ann C. on the show, come on CNN, lets be real.

There are so many better guest to have that can help people not help Ann C., I am sure she has enough money.

People need help.................


Danielle Cantrell   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I am very disappointed that someone like Ms. Coulter believes single parents should give their children up for adoption. I am a single parent, a registered nurse who worked herself through school, and now I have a beautiful daughter in college working on her elementary education degree. I own my home, pay for college and have worked very hard to teach my daughter to be a respected citizen and respect others. I will read your book to educate myself on people like you so I am armed against the stupidity that you speak, but only if I can get it free from the library. I dare not spend a dime on it!


Jeremy   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

PS~the more i watch Ann, the more i see it. she is simply selling her book. looking for the scandal... skirting heart and substance for funny quips and shocking statements. why not? it's america, right? she knows what's she's doing!! she is SELLING drama! question for Ann: Ann, what would you say that your "job description" is?


Janine   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

What Ann says has merit.. You have to really listen to what she is saying. Peolple including Joy, get turned off by her strength and cock sure assuredness. A lot of what she says is RIGHT. We love the victims in this country. LET"S LOVE our opinionated, brilliant, won't back down, buck up folks, move this country forward WOMEN!!


tom   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Funny how liberals just spew hate, if you read the comments.


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

iS THE OCTO'S dR STILL INSEMINATING WOMEN? THATS WHERE IT ALL STARTED.


Patti Lane   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I loved the interview with Ann Coulter. She is an amazing person and isn't afraid to tell it like it is. I don't understand why we can't have more dialogue free from "PC." I thought Joy did a good job of not losing her temper when she clearly disagrees with Ann – but Ann is terrific! Dare say, an American hero.

Attorney General Holter's comments exemplify the problem of our PC culture. Discussing race is not PC. Whites cannot mention it for fear of being labeled a racist, and yet blacks have no such restrictions. And to think the CNN guests earlier suggested that it's offensive to describe blacks as articulate? Are you kidding me?

What a country!


G.R.   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Let's not be dumb here.

Pro choice and pro abortion are two totally different things.
I say that b/c many people dont see that.

So dont make up dumb stuff like that when talking about dems


cindy   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

to Gloria Alred,
the best solution is for these kids to be put up for adoption to loving, responsible parents. This woman, has no parenting skills, has not behaved in a responsible manner over and over, and she will not change. Sooner or later these kids are going to be taken from her, better sooner than later. It's the best interest of the children, not of the selfish, irresponsible mother.


Jason in Orlando   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I'm a 21 year old first time voter and I voted Democrat along with many of my friends the title to one of Ann's books is "If Democrats had any brains, they'd be Republicans". The Rebulicans ran all of D.C. and we implemented Rupublican ideals for 6yrs, and look at the mess we are in. I would like to know why me and all my friends should now vote Republican?


Luke   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

So people's comments above mine completely discredit their arguments. Please people can we actually sound intellectual in our conversation other than "She looks like a man in drag. Nauseating nasal voice". Well i would like to start by saying that yes ann brings up some very controversial topics and at times can be very abrasive in her style of debate, but she makes some great arguments about things that many Americans are not talking about. She brings up good points when she points out that the first person to cry victim in any situation is automatically untouchable. Perfect example even tonight when Joy asked Ann why she chose to speak about Mein Kampf when Barbara is Jewish. Completely ridiculous. I'm 18 and even I can spot things like this. I would like to see some more professional conversation on a serious website like this.


Joe Marino   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I hope this is the last time that I ever hear such an ignorant comment as that made by republicans like Ann Coulter about people loving Rush L., and making it sound as though this proves him right. May I remind her of the intense popularity of Hitler and Mussolini before WW2!


Cricket   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

What a Biased show.


Barb   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I'm so glad that you had Ann on as a guest because now I clearly see she is a sensationalist who likes to earn money off hateful hype.

I'm an unwed single mother for the past 12 years. I graduated with honors from college, my daughter is a beautiful talented young girl. My daughter receives straight A's in school, and sings in her church choir. My income exceeds that of some married couples I know. I don't celebrate being a single mother, but I celebrate motherhood and my daughter, who is thriving and excelling in all she does. Parenthood has more to do with how you parent and less to do with what "type" of family you have. It's not that I don't want the traditional "nuclear" family, it is just that I've made the best of my situation. Ann demonstrates complete ignorance on the nature of motherhood, perhaps it's difficult for her to really understand when she herself is not a mother.

I was contemplating seeing Ann and Bill Maher in Boston next month. I will not go now, as her perspective is not based in reason. Rather it is an extremist view that lacks thoughtful contemplation.


Lisa   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Ann was great! No, I don't agree with Ann 100% of the time but she has my vote for the 1st female President of the United States of America. AC in '12!!!! She is the female version of Ronald Reagan!


Katherine Viker   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Amen Anne, I am adopted and was single parent at the ripe old age of 20. While I put myself through law school it was a difficult time and I am an exception NOT the rule for single parents. Most single moms fall behind and never get ahead. Adoption is a brilliant solution, even open adoption. Joy giving up your child is the ULTIMATE ACT OF LOVE at the greatest personal sacrifice, I hope you realize that. I am eternally grateful to my birth mother (who i know) who provided me with 2 loving stable parents, my own child has suffered in everything from school to emotion problems exacerbated by not having 2 parents, I love him but could have made a better life for him by allowing 2 parents to rear him.


Jo-Ann Peck   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Brutal honesty always gets blasted by lost Liberals living in La-La Land! You can call Ann Coulter all the names you want, but it still doesn't change the fact she speaks the simple truth. The "Good Life" touted by Liberals for so long has sent this country and most of it's citizens to Hell in a Hand Basket. It's insane what some people think is the "right" way to live! Liberals can be best described as robots with no real minds or souls, just selfish desire without thought of consequence. May God have mercy on us all.


Pam   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

It would be great to have Ann back on when Larry was doing the interview. I would appreciate her being allowed to answer the questions Guess I'll have to buy the book.

Shouldn't someone turn off Ryan's virtual mic?


Diane   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

lamour...Jesus was not a socialist..he commanded us to take care of the poor etc....NOT THE GOVERNMENT...I'll gladly share...I just don't want Obama taking it from me and giving it to who he wants to...that's SOCIALISM.....Joy is a pitiful interviewer......she was not interviewing to get information..she was putting Ann on trial for her own personal vendetta...Bring back Larry


mynana   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Wow! The female Rush gives women a bad name. Even if I agreed with what she says, her demeanor and accusatory tone causes me to feel she has no credibility. She doesn't listen and never allows others to speak. What happened to civility?


Linda(Austin,Tx)   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Can't stand Joy Behar. She's so rude and disrepectful of guest. She has no business be a host on CNN.


Louise   February 19th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a disgrace to this country. She tries to be as outrageous as possible for attention. Her comments are vile
and hateful. Who could support or respect this woman full of
venom. She is an actress that never made it! It is her way of
getting attention and she does!


Jen   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I truly enjoy Ann's comments. She came to The College of New Jersey last night and stood her own among a very liberal crowd. Thanks for representing the conservative point of view (the minority at my school) and proving such great points last night. Hopefully next time Ann can face someone else, nottt Joy, on her platform!


Lucinda   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Ann Culter is an incredibly intelligent and articulate woman. It is surprising that she would be ill informed on the interpretation of statistics. Although 80% of inmates come from single mothers that does not mean that 80% of children born to single mothers end up in prison. Those are two completely different statistical statements. What she said was very misleading and inflamatory.


pat croken   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

i watch cnn all the time but i think you have gone to far. joy behar is by no means a journalist or for that matter just a panelist with a little professionalism in handling this job. i will not watch anymore if she is on. you say your a top news station so why are you using someone who wont let anyone answer a question. wont ask a proper question. wont be upnotious with anyone. she has a very im better than you attitude. i dont have to agree with a journalist in order to enjoy a good one on one discussion with someone with an oppossite opinion. she doesnt belong on tv. now i can see why she was fired as the girl who answered the phone for good morning america. she needs to be taken down a notch or two. pat croken


maria   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Ann Coulter is very knowledgeable on the subjset she chooses to write about or to discuss.
Joy does not know what she is talking about and never lets Ann finish a sentence or complete a thought.
I am not a fan of Ann Coulter because I don't really read her boks but she doesnt deserve to be treated that way. Where is Larry and why does he keep having that uninformed woman host his show.
She ruins the show.


Doris   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Dear Ann:

My grandmother gave birth to 22 children. The oldest one is 76 years old and the younger 49 right now. There are no words to describe how hard it was for my grandmother but she never gave up. My grandfather passed away when the younger one was born. It was hard, very hard but she made it and I am proud to say I was raised in a very united and loving family.


Patricia E Cook   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

What a horrible, disrespectful person.


barbara   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

You speak the truth, Ann. It's obvious how you get to Joy. She must be tied to her chair.


Barbara Kiker   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Larry is always a gentlemen to guests on his show. Joy needs to take a few lessons from him!


JIll   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Thank you Joy! I was changing the channel on both of my TV's when I heard Ann was coming on. Before I could get the 2nd. one changed, You were laying into her. Thank you for asking and saying what I have been screaming in my head about her. Thank you for making her answer the questions. She is still rediculous. I don't even know any Republicans that agree with her train of thoughts. She knows nothing of the real people in this country that are voting and making things work. She is absurd and I am always so disappointed when any of my stations have her on. I now say she should never be on anywhere unless it is you that is interviewing/hosting. I can't wait until you have even more knowledge/information in your arsenal to support our rational and viewpoints. Thank you, can't wait for you to have your own show!. Jill


Alexandra in Kentucky   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

The largest demographac sector for the Republicans last election was males over 55 without a college education...Ryan from Texas bears that out.


Lauren   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Hate is a strong word.

I don't hate anyone who stands up, who isn't afraid to express themselves. Everyone is so negative on here.
I like discussion and a good arguement. Why do people have to turn it into hate?

Like or don't like her, I respect her for having courage unlike ALOT of people who whisper in corners behind people's backs.

Time to grow and hear someone elses perspective for a change.

Expand your vocabulary, and educate yourselves before you pass judgement

don't hate


ed   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

JOY I feel sorry that you are sooooooooooooooo ugly
I can only imagine what you look like in the morning

What's with the vibrator fetish?

Nice neck : "gobble gobble"


Katherine Terrio   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Dear Miss Behar,
I found it personally offensive that you would be the one to grill Ann Coulter on manners. I agree that she should be more sensitive about the things that she says. I don't think she realizes how she comes across. At the sametime, I don't think you realize how you come across. I find it very offensive the way you have spoken about the Catholic Church. Just because you say you grew up as one is no excuse. Maybe it would be good to take alittle of your own advise.

Thank you, Sincerely, Katherine Terrio

(Someone who is still Catholic and would prefer not to be insulted by you anymore)


Endy Madukwe   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Ann....some suggestion?.....avoid the left and right label in all you are saying; the light of truth will shine on all you've been saying; b'cos the truth is neither Democrat or Republican. And the whole world will find it easy to see your point of view.....go girl!!!!!


james anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

craighoh–funny you should say that. A lot like Caroline Kennedy in that regard; I'm sure you would agree.


Jerry in Utah   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

These folk playing to the wackos on the extreme right (Ann, Rush, Dr. Laura) only talk this talk because of money $$$$$'s-lots of it! I believe they are liberals dressing in consevative clothing.


aaap   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

There should be legislation put in place to keep people like ann coulter off the air!!!!!!


cathy   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I LOVE Ann Coulter!!!!!!!! I can't stand that joy person, she is a closed minded, judgemental, star-struck, Hollywood puke. You need to interview people in the REAL WORLD and you will find out that most Americans agree with Ann and Rush! You Hollywood people are despised where I live. Why don't you have ANOTHER awards show to honor yourselves. You are no better than anyone else in this world, you all make me sick!


Rod Legg   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I think we know how Joy really feels about that anne freak and hurray for Joy for being able to give some great points against that witless hag.


doreen   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Who is the Joy person???? She is antagonistic, obnoxious, and definitely not worthy of wasting my time watching. Please find a more appropriate substitute for Larry King when he is not able to appear. She is the pits!!!!! Argumentative with a capital "A". It sounded more like a gossip column then a news report/interview!!! PLEASE GIVE AMERICA MORE CREDIT THAN THIS!!!!!!!!! We are more interested in intellectual debate then gossip/slander/ and cat-like innuendos with no substance.


Terri K   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I actually thought Joy Behar was argumentative, cocky and arrogant . This was a debate..not a talk show host and guest. I think Ann won. Joy, stick to comedy...as a serious talk show host you looked lost without your notes because it appeared to be the only way you could keep up with Ann..she didn't miss a beat.


Keith   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Interviews such as this are the epitome of everything that is wrong with the media today. Whatever happened to impartial presentation of information and facts and allowing the viewer to form their own opinions and judgements. You can agree or disagree with the subject being interviewed, but using the time to promote your personal agendas and attacking the subject, which was clearly the case, makes the media look every bit as bad (if not worse) than the subject.


B. Day   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Dear Ann: I HATE YOU!

Now the next time you tell someone that "No one hates you; everyone loves you," that comment, like EVERYTHING else out of your unintelligent mouth, will be just another lie.

I will never understand why CNN continues to give this disgraceful human being a platform.


m. walnite   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

joy behar is really annoying. she doesn't let the guest answer a question. she is not objective. she clearly doesn't do any homework and is incapable of tact and tolerance of anyone elses views. for someone who says she favors free speech, clearly she only means her own. she is extremely ignorant and now it's obvious why she was fired from all her prior jobs. she taught school and couldn't even do that right. she was fired. will never watch this show again if she is on.


Serhiy   February 19th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Larry,
Should the Child Services and IRS visit this irresponsible parent? How can she afford a publicist, six children and eight newborns? Does anyone have a comprehensive answer? Anybody?


Michaell Brooks   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Since Clinton took credit for the welfare act.Bush should own up too and take creit for his diasters<abu grahib,katrina,an Iraq,plus leaving us trillions in debt ,under his watch.Ann Coulter all other right wingers are brain washed if it's not under their agendas.They see no wrong,she should eat a couple cheeseburgers,those toothpicks for legs are going too break one day.


Donna Simmons   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I happen to like Ann Coulter very much and would appreciate it if Joy Behar would at least TRY to disguise her dislike for Ms. Coulter and others who disagree with the way she believes the world should be. She has a right to her beliefs but it is her mean spirit that makes me want to turn off Larry King every time she hosts.(I usually do.

Donna Simmons


P. Lee   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter for President!!!!


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

In my opinion, I think Ann is smart to but this is not the right time to have her on this show. Also, her personality and attitude about things suck.


HP   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Funny that Joy doesn't think anyone likes Ann Coulter... why would she be on LKL then? Better than that, why would she be on the View? Fortunately for Joy, their ratings go up because people actually like Ann. Oh and by the way Joy, The View is like the Fed... doesn't represent the other 46% of the US.


Kelley   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter. She is what is right with this country. I am glad that she is around to get my views out to the world even if people don't want to hear it. I am proud of Ann for trying to stick up for herself when she is interviewed by the liberal media.


Derek   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann made some very good points. Joy is blinded and will probably never understand we all are against the spending plan just signed.


mk   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I think Joy and Ann oughta try listening to each other and imparting their female communication skills. They sound just like two men with overblown egos too afraid to admit their wrong – and as a result unable to hear or validate any part of what the other might be saying. I think there's more common ground there than they each think there is. I'd like to see women join forces more instead of arguing in a way that only increases the divisiveness. I think they both might be thinking they are doing us a favor by vehemently defending their positions, but I think in fact they are doing exactly the opposite. Time to find some common ground. The world is going global, time to be Americans and stand together, time to be women and join forces. Loved both of them nonetheless, as much as that might contradict everything I'm saying. I think it is possible to be more than just one-dimensional. What I'm saying is I thought they BOTH had valid things to bring to the argument. Too bad they couldn't find more common ground.


JMF in New York   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Regardless of who was being interviewed, did there really have to be a conversation about sex and vibrators coming from this Joy woman?? Where is Larry!? We were absolutely disgusted by this show.


valerie   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

why is everyone so up in arms over this woman getting public assistance have we all just discovered where taxpayers money goes?? sit outside the welfare office in massau county LI and see the people that come out, check out their jewelery, their cars ,their cloths, and see how many people actually take the bus. I would rather see my money go to someone who needs it then all these people comitting welfare fraud!!


RonniJo   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Jeepers! What's wrong with everybody out there? Aren't you people listening to Ann Coulter? Or is she saying things you just don't want to hear? Ann, you make a lot of sense to me and I'm north of the 49th.
Keep talking! Keep writing!


the muse   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

damn- it i am so mad i had my real name showing 😦 oh well, JOY you are doing so well

thank you for keeping it real


doug   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

It is a shame that Ann C. can't contribute anything positive to society. I can't stand to listen to her run her mouth. She is so closed minded about everything. She is simply full of hatred and hates Americans.

Carmen Shrimplin   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

ANN ROCKS!!!! SHE SPEAKS TRUTH AND THAT BOLDNESS MAKES HER AN AWESOME WOMEN, TOTALLY ADMIRE HER!

CARMEN, COLUMBUS OH


Sandy Brown   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I commend Ann for keeping her cool and getting a word in edgewise against that arrogrant, pushy Joy's insensitive, crude attacks on anything she (Joy) doesn't agree with. For Joy to say Ann is insensitive is hilarious – coming from a blabbermouth, loudmouth unladylike masculine-like "woman" like Joy. The View is a perfect spot for Joy, with those other "out of touch" products of today's Media. Glad Ann stood up to Joy's one-sided over the top opinions.


Chuck A   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Colter, Rush and Hannity has been the biggest dumming down of America. They keep repeating lies until their followers actually believe her. I use Colter, Limbaugh and Hannity to my kids on how not to be as in life if they want to spent internity in Heaven. The hate and lies she puts out is disgraceful.


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I wish that the interviewer would shut her pie hole and let Ann speak, she is the guest isn't she?
Ann you are a HOTTIE! Where can I get an autographed copy of your book?
Eric


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Thank god she's gone.................


Dorienne   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter's shrill, uber-aggressive style of communication shatters any hope she may have had of credibility. She seems to think that all she needs to prove that her views are valid is the fact that her books all 'sell'. Well, pornography sells too - you cater to the lowest common denominator and you're bound to get some buyers! Come to think of it, that's exactly the component of the population Ann Coulter is popular with - the very bottom 1%.


lori   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann has some very truthful observations and comments (with facts to back her) and sometimes the truth hurts. She is smart and articulate and I enjoyed her on the program.


rick   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Joy, you were outmatched. While I may not agree with everything Coulter believes, you need to stick to comedy (although you're not that funny). Vibrator comment, nice!!! You need to get some class. Brooklyn bullying doesn't always work. You didn't enhance your position or image.


gaynell   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I can't believe Larry King let Joy fill in for him. I just happen to turn the stations and I can't stand to watch Joy, she is so liberal she stinks. I would tell Ann...go get her girl!


KC   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

CNN, I choose not to watch Fox for a reason. I like Joy Behar, but that was 27 minutes of the worst tv I've ever seen. Please bring back the truth squad to review everything that came out of Coulter's mouth tonight.


Jay in Poughkeepsie   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

i am liberal, but i got a lot of respect for ann coulter. i disagree with her views greatly, but I respect the woman. She speaks her mind and she speaks her opinions. Why is she seen as a monster because all she is doing is publishing her thoughts??? this country was based upon the notion that having different views is actually a good thing. that we can disagree without being disagreeable. nobody said you have to love the woman or listen to her, but why not just respect her opinion instead of being ignorant and think everyone needs to think alike?


chris jenkins   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

All you republicans are sick . you just want to distroy the middle class of american along with the poor.


carol   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I love Joy on the View – but this interview was painful! Ann is obnoxious and won't stop spewing her nonsense. Joy's distane for her (which is completely understandable) makes it even more unbearable because it eggs Ann on. I wonder what Ann would have said to Larry. Lord knows I'd never read a word of her books to find out – just curious.


Bill   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

you guys keep saying how rude Ann is your precious president made fun of small town,God loving, hard working people and I didn't hear you object to his rudeness! get a grip it is her opinion nothing else. She has a right to say what she feels and only when socialism rules do we loose our voice.


Freda Hall   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter should be banned, thank God that most of us do not share her views. I saw her on an afternoon Dr. Phil show and it was all I could do not to throw a brick at the TV. (although it was not the TV's fault. I spent part of my life as a single mother and I can promise you that I do not appreciate the fact that she is trying to lay the issues of the world on that group. Giving an obviously uptight, bigoted, foul person such as herself air time is a waste of everybody's time there is a way to express your displeasure with a social situation her way is reprehensible. Talk about irresponsible


sgriffin   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a pompous ass.


Ann   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

My mother was a single mother. All three of her children including myself did not become a dredge to society. She was a wonderful mother. My father, who got remarried had another child. My younger brother from my mom is in his final year of his double bachelor's degree in psychology and criminal justice. My brother from my dad, (the 2 parent family) has been in jail/prison/detention centers since he was 12 years old. He just got out of prison a year ago and recently got arrested again. So tell me, Ann Coulter, where did you get your education? Oh that's right, you think, you don't know. Shut your mouth and stop over generalizing.


Mark   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter has the courage to point out the socially destructive aspects of single motherhood. While the media and entertainment industries often glamorize fatherless families, Ann accurately points out that such arrangements often lead children to engage incriminal activity, poor academic performance, and divorce later in life.


jace   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Great job, Joy. Wonderful interview! I wish you would take over when Larry leaves. (if he ever does.)


Dustin   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I really enjoy listening to Ann, She brings up alot off good points that most people are scared to address, I would really love tosee her in a interview where the show's host would actually let her completely answer a question, with out cutting her short, twisting her words or telling her "the answer is too long"!, Thats a cop out, Ann I love your down to earth attitude and I'm gonna have to check out your book, God bless, Dustin


CEJ   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

All those interested in what Ann smokes besides cigarette's –
She is a notorious chain smoker who once was fired because she would not
obey the NYC no-smoking laws!


Karin Sanders   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I am a single mom (by choice) living in New York City. I have a stable job, a home I own and a graduate education. When Ann Coulter suggests that children of single moms are more likely to commit crimes and have less happy lives in general because of being raised in by a single mother, she is forgetting all the other characteristics of those who end up in prison and otherwise – ie. socioeconomic, unwed teens, fathers who have abandoned them, etc. – that distort this number. She has, perhaps, also forgotten individuals such as Bill Clinton, Michael Phelps and President Obama who all did pretty well after being raised by their single mothers. I decidedly had a child because I have the financial, psychological and emotional capacity to raise my son on my own. I am certain that I am able to give him a life with far less dysfunction (ie. alcoholism, abuse, etc.) than many two parent households.

Ms. Coulter is either completely ignoring where her numbers come from or, and I suspect more likely, professes these extreme views in order to sell her books....Since, as she says, she doesn't [otherwise] have a job.

Sincerely,
Karin (New York, NY)


One In Dallas   February 19th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Ann Coulter is the impediment of what the republican stands for …“Nothing”


Jayne from VA   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Ann,
I'm an intelligent and highly educated woman and, frankly, I'm surprised to hear some of the distortions in presentation of data you provide. I certainly think you are knowledgeable enough to know what those misrepresentations are without being told by me. It's a simple case of your taking advantage of the media to drive home your views irrespective of such misrepresentations.
Also, I'm surprised to see that you haven't taken into consideration how your personal characteristics of deliberate abrasiveness and often outright rudeness effect your ability to make your point. Surely you know, if you lose your audience, your point is lost as well.


Nancy Lemasters   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Boy you sure can tell by the comments, you only have liberals watching Larry King show. Everyone can bash republicans for 8 years but as soon as anyone says anything against Obama and this awful stimulis bill, everyone goes off the wall. Hey everyone broaden your viewing and see what the rest of the country thinks.......


niki   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I believe Ann Coulter, promotes prejudices against women, and all non white races. Does she in fact even talk to or have any friends who are black, asian, latino, etc? By the way, Ann, although it is true that you are very popular, there are millions worldwide who hate the things you say, stand for, and do. Hence the results of the last presidential election. Old school, primitive, racial, and bias philosophies, and viewpoints are not the mainstream

Fix Joys hair-she looks like a granmother from the 50's. Does she have a college degree?


Helen Lineham   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I love Ann. Finally a quick mouthed thoughtful conservative who can banter with smart responses, not afraid to stay with the status quo.


Sandy   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I do not like Joy on The View not as co-host on Larry King ...
She is very opinionated and gets her kicks debating anyone who does not think as she does. As a co-host she should raise questions, not fuel a fight/nasty debate even if she doesnt agree.

I like Ann Coulter for standing up to Joy and not being intimated by Joy and her barbs...

Larry King – You Can Do Better and Get a Quality Co-Host!


DebbieKat   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

"lisa February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I love to listen to you Ann, watched you on Hanity before. Joy needs to shut her mouth and let the guest talk. OMG she is so annoying."

Right. Just like Hannity gives HIS guests a chance to speak? I can't bear to watch fox news. Not only because it isn't news, but it's NOT entertaining. I hate listening to a bunch of people try to yell over each other to be heard. It sounds like muddled crap. It's not useful, it's not educational, it's a waste of time. For you to make a statement that Joy's interviewing style is even remotely as annoying as Hannity's is, that's just insanity. But then, you are a fan of Ann.


LED   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Leave Joy alone, she is amazing...as for Hannity, come on, he over talks his guest too. He never give his guest a chance to respond, especially if they are democrats....please republicans, you do the same thing you blame the democrats for doing!


Jackie   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

My 9-year-old daughter–up later than usual because of winter break–stopped to watch the "cheerleader" on tv only to find that she (Ann Coulter) was talking about "boring stuff." She asked, "Why is that woman flicking her hair around like a teenager, but she's only talking about boring stuff?" I have to agree: that constant playing with her hair certainly detracts from any point Ann is trying to make.


aliou   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I love this show today!!!!

People need to leave the octoplet mother alone. Do you know what damage you are doing to a 34 years old woman who is already stressed with all this barrier of talk?

Leave her alone. You are going to drive her insane.

What is wrong with wanting her babies and doing what everyone else does to raise them?

IF there was none of these barriers of vicious tv and media drumbeat against her, she would have had some support by now. Sponsors of many food and family services would be on her door steps begging to use her position for advertizing. I am going to use her babies if I could get in contact with her to sel my stuff, and pay her what is necessarty to keep her children.

We should not incapacitate this mother with our anger and blabs against her.


Anthony   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

ed great comment well educated


Beth   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

GREAT JOB Joy. Glad you challenged this publicity seeking, hateful B....I wonder if she ever listens to the bs she spews? The whole ecomonic disaster is the fault of the Dems since 2006??? Bush did not inherit a budget surplus? Everyone loves her??? Anne is no Christian; she is only appealing to the angry white man. Anyone with half a brain can see through her. I usually turn her off but tonight I enjoyed the match.


Tim Umholtz   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Joy, I LOVE you, but you missed a really good point by Ann Coulter, about Sarah Palin's daughter. She was right, she should either marry the father and take responsibility, or give it up for adoption, a really great option for all. Thanks, Iove you.
Tim

AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...TAKE A MOMENT TO BREATH....


Erin   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Ann Coulter is disgusting. Until she know what its like to raise a child she should keep her mouth shut.
I have been with my boyfriend for 8 years and we have 2 kids. He is an excellent father and we go with out so that i can stay home and take care of our children instead of strangers. You cant tell me that just because some priest hasnt stood over us and declared us officially together that my daughters will grow up the worse for it.
Ann Coulter should go watch a single mother struggle to give her child the best, to work 2 jobs and then come home and make dinner and do homework. It's nice then, that some republican nut job comes along and spouts off on a subject that she no clue about other than some prison statistics!
Get a clue Ann


Latisha Clair   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I watch Larry King almost every night. I am a Lady Democrat and I have never been so outraged about a guest on this show until tonight. I really dislike this woman. I don't think that wemen democrats go around sleeping with any man they see. She was referring to our African american and hispanic population when she spoke of single mothers causing all the problems in the US. This Lady is crazy and needs to muve to an Island far far away with her famous Fat Racist radio host!!!!!! She and hae favorite radio host wants our new president to fail but like My president said before This Problem with our ecomony was here when he came into office. Bush drove our ecomomy into the ground. now MOST of the republicans want to point fingers at the 44th, they should look in the mirror.


Den   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

She looks like a dried up prune.
Oh and by the way my daughter is a single mom who put herself through college and her son is now in college to be a Doctor so your theory on this s*cks.


David   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Joy,
If Ann thinks Rush Limbaugh is so popular, ask her how he would have fared against Obama in the last election?


oldasnew   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

The history I want to see is what is going on right now. Here and now is history in the making. Right now you do not need to read a history book you need to read a economic book. which no one on the democratic side seems to want to do. Welfare did not work before and it will not work now. If you think that bailing people out is going to work you are sadly mistaken. I will bet that 90% of the people that get bailed out will end up getting foreclosed on. I lost everything I had 9 years ago and would not ask for help even from my family or the government. I worked 12 plus hour days and made it BY MY Self.


Shirah Penn   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Way to go, Joy! You gave a great interview with Ann Coulter and you kept your cool!.I always have a hard time not reacting to Ann's spewing of hate. It just makes me feel sad. Love Gramma Shirah


Michelle in Ohio   February 19th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

The State of California should step in and take those babies. There are plenty of loving families who'd love to adopt the octuplets. Nadya Suleman needs serious mental health care. For anyone to knowingly have themselves inseminated while knowing they cannot provide for them financially or emotionally shows serious mental problems. The state needs to make sure these babies do not go home with Nadya. If they do, I think they (as well as the other six children) are in serious danger.


t.taylor   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Ann is right. .joy needs to smile more.


Sonya   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Ann C. if the single mothers of the world are doing so bad with raising our children then why is Obama president?


Steve, Colorado   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I think the octamom had all of these children because she had created a fantasy in her head that she would become famous for it. She is a seriously dysfunctional individual, who needs some intense psychological attention.


B.   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

This interview was a joke. "Do people hate you?" "Would you say yes if George Clooney asked you out?" I was expecting an intelligent debate on issues. I suppose that went out the window when that dope Joy replaced Larry King. Joy couldn't carry Ann's lunch in an intellectual debate, so she had resort to nonsense.


Venu   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Ann Coulter....boy she can talk....I love her.


Hugh S   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

One's morality is another's monstrosity. It's astonishing to see just how deeply-divided our great nation has become. Two diametrically opposed ideologies – two disturbingly different perspectives on reality.


Amber Beatty   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I think Joy is rude. She obviously hates Ann.


Kim - Chicago   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Great exchange between Joy and Ann. Joy is as liberal as Ann is conservative. I've seen Joy speak just as offensively and outrageously with her liberal views as Ann speaks with her conservative views, so it was laughable to me that Joy spoke to Ann as if SHE'S the proposterous one. Joy should stop making conservatives out to be villians! Ann is over the top – that's what gets her so much attention.


Tate   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I love it.....Ann taking a stand with Joy! I don't like Joy at all and enjoyed Ann giving it to her. It was nice seeing Joy squirm in her chair. I'm going out to buy a new book!!!


Lara   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Larry, You have to keep Joy Behar off of your show! I can't stand the sound of her voice, and she's truly no match for Ann Coulter. Ann's delivery isn't always taken well, but atleast she does the research needed to have her strong opinions. Many people have strong opinions and are clearly ignorant.


Rickie Gordon   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

As soon as Ann Coulter comes down off of Mount Judgment, someone needs to ask her how she can pass morale judgment on society when she wears low cut shirts and religious symbols at the same time. Does Ann know that GOD is watching her?? I'm a single mother that raised two productive human beings that are NOT in jail. Get a life ANN!


Hugh S   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Joyce Bruns   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Don't shoot the messenger ! Ann Coulter speaks THE TRUTH! And, vehemous and rabid liberals like Joy Behar who never let someone from the other side of the aisle speak need to LISTEN! No one wins an argument when the host of the "debate" is a know-it-all, valueless, smart-aleck. Larry King and CNN News could find a LOT better replacement host than Joy Behar who monopolizes the conversation and loves to hear HERSELF talk! I'd love to see Joy Behar replaced as a host on "The View" as well. Hosts of TALKshows need to FACILITATE discourse/talk NOT MONOPOLIZE it!


William Mera   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Ann Coulter is an embarrassment to the human raise. The hairs on the back of my neck raise in the same way when I see KKK propaganda, or when Sara Palin was actually running for VP. Is the southern belt that stupid? I think not, its just the stupid ones that get air time for some reason.

Why give these people air time? Ann needs to go back to Appalachia and drink some mountain dew with her brother/husband.
.


Jimmy   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I know Larry needs a break from the show now and then,but how can anyone watch when Behar is trying to interview a guest.


Susan   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I have to say that Nadya and her children is really none of our business. She has not neglected her children yet. I am a social worker and we still have to show harm by either neglect or abuse. I have not heard one piece of evidence that this has happened. We would have to remove many children from mothers that do not have adequate incomes. We are suppose to help not hurt.... Why is the media even talking about her when there is so much else going on in the world!!


Betty Seamans   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Why doesn't Ann Coulter just spit it out?? She is referring to "welfare mothers" ... specifically the ones who keep having kids with no support from the father and rely on us, the taxpayers, to support them. I feel sorry for the children who are born and go home with a mother who is only looking for the extra monthly stipend. They positively have no future ahead of them; they are just the source of a few hundred additional dollars a month! Think Octamom!!

P.S. Please advise Joy Behar that Bristol Palin's baby has a supportive and loving mother, father and grandparents! That child will not be a drain on the U.S. taxpayers and most likely will lead a happy and productive life!! You could be talking about global warming and Ms. Behar would find a way to trash Sarah Palin or her daughter! I had to stop watching the View because of her and now will have to stop watching Larry King Live, at least, when she is subbing for Larry!


Rachel Rhoads   February 19th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

I am a democrat, but I try to be open-minded. People like Ann Coulter make my skin crawl. She made me angry listening to her. I think half the problem is the partisanship in our government. She is a perfect example of the closed minded people we need to get out of the media and government. As a college student, I've done a lot of searching recently to decide my views on politics. She is an awful role model to students like me trying to find their stance on American and World politics. Republican or Democrat, we are all Americans. So Ann Coulter, write a book about how terrible liberal are. Point your finger at us. It's not making any of our problems better.


Scott Rosen   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I just witnessed proof that Ann Coulter has 1,000,000,000 times the brain power than Joy Behar. I love Ann!!! We need more people who get it.


Anne Stevenson   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I think Anne raises some good points, it is her delivery that is so offensive. Plus Anne is so Republican, so dog eat dog, every man, women and child for themselves. She has no compassion. But I guess that is how she sells her books and is a guest on all the talk shows, so it works for her. I am not sure that she even feels what she writes and says, she is just using the shock factor, and we all fall for it. She is laughing all the way to the bank....


huffinpuff   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

This interview was like having a cub high school reporter interview and badger a Town School Superintendant becuse the School Superintendant is not in favor of increased recess.

This Joy Whatshername was borrish, insipid, unbelievably rude and disrespectful and seemingly not well versed in the author's positions, nor seemingly very bright on the issues of the day.


phil   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

ANN COULTER IS MORE IGNORANT THAN SARAH PALIN


aspiringyogi   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I think Ann Coulter is actually a liberal lipstick lesbian and writing books and acting conservative is her shtick!

I love joy I think she should take over for Larry when he is ready.


Chris   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Its amazing to see a women that smart, to be that dumb. Self centered and very rude. Loud.......Ann reminds me of one of those drunk loud chicks at the bar that you what to take home, just to shut them up(read between the lines) I hardly ever watch Larry King but now I'm sure I will never watch it again. Ann irritated my acid reflux. She's a dude in a wacked out female body. It worries me to see where we are headed when the media lets people like her influence a population.


Normal American   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Its amazing how these typical new york yenta's whose constant belittlement to anybody blond blue eyed & christian are just soo thinned skinned expose why Ann, Sarah and the rest of American women who look up to them, just can't stand you people and will no longer will be silent. From 2010 & Beyond (now that Obama & Co shattered every campaign financial law) Independent GOP women will see just how much corporate & personal monies will be raised without anybody cackling about it..


Theresa Holloway   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Go Ann go.. lol I loved it. She made Joy looked as dumb as a rock. She speaks the truth when she could get a word in, over the obnoxious Big mouth Joy. She shined, and won all the rounds in that debate. Give it up people if you would just listen to the warnings you would realize what a mess Obama and his crew have us in. Give it a few months and you will be saying, "Ann was right".
Larry, why would you invite someone on your program to be attacked with the ignorance of the like of Joy. She is a has been comedian and a bitter bitter person.. She has more hate and disgust in her than Ann. At least Ann is honest. I loved every bit of it, and had the greatest laugh for the day.. Great job Ann.. thanks for the entertainment of putting Joy in her place tonight.. Oh, and Joy don't lie and tell someone you enjoy talking to them, when you clearly can't stand a thing she stands for.. what a joke you are. You looked STUPID tonight. Stay out of politics, in fact just stay home..


Melanie Yeager   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I personally do not like Joy. She never lets anyone finish their thoughts. As for this mother, you know what...I think she needs to be left to figure it out. Remember we do live in the USA and she has the right to do it even if it is wrong in your eyes.


Chris   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Joy lost her cool and failed to interview Ann professionally.
Attacking your guest is lame.
Ann is terrific. Too bad she wasn't interviewed with some respect.


Ken Braun Boston MA   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I loved the Ann Colter interview. Never realized how truly intelligent she is.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT SHE WAS ON THE THIN SIDE, NOW I THINK SHE IS PERFECT!


Sandy   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Ryan, you are rude!


Linda B.   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Joy Behar,,,,,, what a joke!!! Not only do you not know about politics,,, you don't know anything about doing an interview either! Ann made you look like a fool. Go Ann!!!!!,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, A faithful FOX Fan


suzanne mclennan   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I can't stand to even watch the View with these women who every time I see it , are attacking one of there own, the guest or someone else. There is nothing respectful and listening worthy, so I turn the channel with in a few minutes. The contention takes away from the topic just like Joy has done as she was filling in again tonight for Larry King. I would rather be wathching Larry King on his show.

I feel, the nuber of children in a family is no ones business as long as the MOTHER AND FATHER are there and takinging full responsibility for them not the public, with few exceptions. I believe the descision of adoption is up to the mother and fathers of the children, but I am with the guest, encourageing parents to marry if at all posible, if not, adoption is most likely best for the child.


Vicki Joyner   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Joy Beher should find another job! She looked and sounded like an air head up against Ann Coulter.


Brandon   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Though I disagree with pretty much everything Ann Coulter says, I find her very amusing and honestly enjoy her presence. I can't stand people who are middle-of-the-road and can't really settle on what they think. I would consider myself a fairly extreme liberal and I would much rather hear someone from the complete other end of the spectrum than just some hum-drum doofus. Go Ann!


LED   February 19th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Ann and Rush better start their own political party, Micheal Steeles is a black man leading the republican party. Oh yeah, Ann by the way, Michael Steeles is from a single parent...lol...


Mrs. Norma Peterson   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

My husband and I loved Ann Coulter on your show tonight! She is a brillant woman and her sarcastic comments can be quite funny. We were surprised with some of the comments and attacks she received from your host, Joy. Seeing Ann standing up to Joy was very entertaining. We were a bit shocked when the subject of sex was brought up by your host. ANN, YOU ROCK!


sandy   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Thanks for having Ann on tonight. She's great and very smart. You may not agree with her but at least she is direct with her comments and stance unlike our new Prez who takes 15 mins to answer a question, sounds great but leaves everyone scratching their heads wondering what he said. Sometimes the answer is as simple as yes or no, I do or I don't . Thanks Ann


Elizabeth Kelly   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Enjoyed Ann Coulter very much. Joyce on the other hand is not qualified to interview her or anyone. What are you thinking having her as a host. Poor choice!!

Thank You,

Elizabeth

bill (indiana)   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Ann tells the truth and the truth hurts. Joy needs to take a walk thru the ghetto area and if she makes it home she will end up thinking like ANN. Joy has a nervous jerk to her mouth when she has to confront a person who knows what is going on in this country. BTW I'm a democrat and I made a mistake.


Steve Nolan   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Where is my comment?
There was nothing offensive in it/


Liz   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Ann,

Referring to Joy's question to you on whether you think children being raised by single moms is okay, you respond that the children are better off being put up for adoption where they can lead a normal/better life. Tell me, if you really feel that way how do you explain, dare I ask, about our current President who was raised by his single mom partially, then by his grandmother?


Brian, Canada   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Coulter certainly has a propensity to exaggerate. Most radio ratings reports put Rush's weekly audience at 14 million. That would be weekly ... not the the 20 million Coulter spouted as if it were a daily number.


B Gawk   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Democrats have been running Michigan and Detroit especially for many years. The best years for business and jobs in Michigan were during the last Republican governor, Ask anyone who runs a business here in Michigan. And now the poverty of Detroit has begun to spread across the country. "Just wait 5 years! You will be blown away" were the words of our Democratic governor to indicate future prosperity. in Michigan. Well just wait for 4 years of Democrats in both houses and the Executive Branch. And then tell me if you're better off than now. I hope I'm wrong!

PS Both Joy and Ann are extreme. And look how much money they're getting for their schtick. I couldn't do it.


Bud, Trumbull,CT   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

To understand the arrogance of Ann Coulter you need to understand her developmental environment. Ann comes from Darien, Conn where the money flows freely, all the girls are righteous WASPS and the poo doesn't stink. In the 60's and 70 Jews were intensionally discouraged from buying homes, blacks were non existent, and all good citizens belonged to the country club. Drinking began at 3 in the afternoon with at least three martinis before dinner at 8. Coulter is product of her environment. God love Darien.


Robert Wallace   February 19th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

I watched the interview, Joy said she was a single mom.How much child support was she getting from her Ex, or did she not know who the father was ?


laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

We love Ann Coulter! My little one just asked me "what can I draw" I was so involved in rooting for Ann that I replied, "draw Ann Coulter"....five minutes later there was the picture of Ann....wish I could post that! No one today has the GUTS to speak the truth..........the republicans have tried to be "gentle" it doesn't work with the hard core dems. Like bullies on the street the only thing they understand, is force! Albeit the force of words!


Eleanor   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Sorry Larry while I love you and your show this is one guest I refused
to watch tonight
this woman has the most venomous tongue I have ever heard and
the same venemous attitude
She is so self absorbed and has such a big ego she is repulsive to watch
I wouldnt buy her book if it was the only one on the shelf
The republicans just dont get it!!!
its bc of venomous people like her Rush and Carl rove they are down in the sewer where they are!!!!!!
Will join you tomorrow night Larry


Brenda   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

My God!! I have sat here watching Joy Bahar spewing venom all over Ann Coulter!! I'm not a fan of Ann's per se, but the way Joy interviewed her was an ambush. It certainly changed my *view* of Joy and not for the better. She was vulger (talking about 'screwing') and downright rude to Ann.
Larry, please choose your hosts more carefully!!!!!

Brenda


mmc24   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

i honestly dont think that bristol paylin should have her baby adopted out,i think if she can handle the responiblity of this child then she should keep it, who she marries should be her choice when she is ready.my mom and dad are divorced granted they both got remarried to other people but me and my brothers turned out just fine,my mom pretty much raised 3 kids on her own,the women in prison are there not because they were raised by a single mother but because they did a crime and they are paying for it,if you dont know what you are talking about i suggest you shut your mouth and keep your opionions to yourself ann.


Mark   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

What happend to civility? When a question is asked, you should wait for the answer. If you don't agree with what is being said, you should still wait for the answer...then rebut. I, as a viewer, would at least like to listen to someones point of view. Both points of view!!! I am trying to go over the interview in my mind to make sense of what was just said. Larry King at least would let his guest speak. I found no JOY in your show.


Louise   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Why do we continue to air such hatred and ridiculous conversation?
I watch CNN every night but had a very difficult time listening to Coulter.
She is a sick person and we should not be wasting anymore precious time listening to that.


Kevin Nieman   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Ann Coulter has the courage to state her opinions openly and honestly. It was obvious throughout that Joy – instead of conducting an interview – was trying to grandstand. In fact, she looked very foolish because she lost her composure and Ann kept hers. I am not an Ann Coulter fan – she is a very likeable person and I agree with many of her views – but I am not a fan. However, after watching the way she handled herself, I may become one. The obvious liberal bias that Joy presented is detestable. Instead of allowing Ms. Coulter to speak, she accused her of being too long winded. The truth is, it kept her from being able to push her own position and she didn't like it. I have never been a big fan of CNN and after watching the way Joy handled this interview, I'll be even less likely to come back.


Vicki Joyner   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

WAY TO GO ANN COULTER! JOY SHOULD GET ANOTHER JOB!


Lauren   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

This is the worst interview I've ever seen. Joy was totally unprofessional and clueless on any subject matter mentioned in the interview. I was never a big fan of Ann Coulter but I will buy her book just to spite Joy.

CNN is making a big mistake using Joy on Larry King Live.


Jeff Jimmo   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Ann is awesome – calm, full of facts, poised and tells it like it is. Joy tried desperately to engage and knock Ann off the mark. she's not capable of debating at Ann's level – not even close


Dian M   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I applaud Joy for even having a conversation with this female version of Lumbaugh. Joy was tolerant and handled herself well. I can't stand listening to her offensive and arrogant voice. Frankly, I am very disappointed Larry King gave Coulter this media opportunity. A lot of your viewers will be turned off by nonsense guests like this. Ann Coulter is a Public Relations Mistake and CNN should let FOX News support her. Please, no more interviews with this Monster!


J Foshee   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Lauren-

Thank you for your words. You are completely correct.

If someone says something that is not in agreement with what another thinks... they are immediately pounced on, hated and demeaned.

I hope that isn't how people are being raised today.

Thanks again-
J

Ben   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Whitney   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Yes Ann, I HATE YOU....and I will NOT being buying your stupid book with that ridiculous title!!!!!!!!!


colleen from canada   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

i am shocked and appalled by the comments coming out of ann's mouth...larry should not have someone like this on his show..she is a disgrace to humanity.


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I think this whole beautiful world is infected with ignorance and should be ended with another catastrophe and start over and leave out all the negativity....


Ben   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Ann is smart one thing...shock and awe. She is using it to the maximum by saying stuff not that just shocks you but makes you doubt your ears. How do you feel if I come on the show and say you as a woman does not belong her...you should be in the Kitchen. Would not you doubt your ears that you heard something awful like that?

That is what Ann is doing. Shocking us beyond anything, we have ever heard in our life. She is good at exploiting that emotional shock and disbelief we have about such issues. She is a narcissist that knows how to push our buttons to her advantage to get attention.


larry rowland   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

larry, what a fantastic host you chose in joy behar! we have finally found someone that turned ann C. inside out she didn't know wheter she was afoot or horseback!, i wasn't going to watch the program tonight, iam so glad i did. larry michigan


Leah   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Ann says that single moms should be attacked for raising their children, but not the men who left them, Because she said "single moms are celebrated" It is and never will be easy to be a single mom in this country. What is she talking about. Two parent families aren't perfect though. How could she completely overlook that crucial point. Does she think two parent families are always perfect? She must be touched in the head.


Rachel in Michigan   February 19th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

That Ann Coulter. (ugh!) She can speak so easily of having single mothers either give up their children or marry the fathers. She obviously has never had a personal situation like that and doesn't have the empathy needed to make a reasonable judgement about that subject. There are factors that prevent some mothers from marrying the father, like abusiveness, incapatability...etc. To just smack a father into the picture for the of having one...it's not exactly realistic. My parents never got married, and I'm glad they didn't. They were completely incapatable, and would have made each other miserable if they had stayed together for my sake. They are both a part of my life, only separately. I am an all A student and am currently an honor roll student at a university. I turned out just fine.

In fact, the top validictorian of my high school class, of the eight validictorians, was raised by his mother, although I think she was divorced when he was little. He's brilliant and going to succeed in his career.


Sarah   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Ann
I just wanted to say I agree with a lot of things that you are saying. I wish that people would take more responsiblity for their own actions instead of us having to pay for it. I am tired of this goverment, and it is not only democrats fault but also rep. I am tired of the democrats giving everything away for nothing. I am tired of people livng off the goverment this is not a permanent plan for you. Get help if you need it then get a job!! People that think like Joy Behart are what is wrong with this country. She is a liberial and I don't like her.

P.S. Joy leave Elizabeth alone!!!


Allistair MacLellan   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

I think that Anne does have a lot of good ideas, and though she is very opinionated she is right sometimes. To gain any credibility I challenge her to step in to the ring with someone who actually knows politics and economics rather then making feable attempts to argue with a talk show host. Also, WE KNOW YOU HAVE BESTSELLERS, there was no need to flaunt that throughout the entire interview. Get off your high horse Anne we know you have to sell your book but enough is enough. You claim to be very intelligent so discuss the issues!, don't get caught up with that mindless bickering.


Robert   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

About Ann's popularity (and ability to sell books). I worked within the book industry for eight years as a Corporate Sales Representative and can assure you that when someone purchases her book that does not mean that they agree with Ann Coulter at all. Her book sells should not in any way be confused as a barometer for support for her extreme views, as she seems to believe and expressed on the show tonight.

Ann is a very emotionally charged woman who feeds off of the negative response that she illicits within the American public, like a screaming child in a supermarket who attracts attention to herself at the expense of embarassment to her mother (our country)...in this sense she is "popular". If she can't have it her way she is going to make it a miserable trip for all of us. Ann subscribes to simple dichotomies as set forth by an oversimplified political agenda and as such her views should be taken about as seriously as a child in a state of hysteria over not getting their way.

By the way you can now find her books in dollar stores across the country (you know, where they end up once America's ears stop ringing and she is forgotten again).


Tom from Tempe   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Joy may the worst interviewer ever. She does not let her guest speak or answer her questions. She talks over Ann. Joy is not very professional. While Ann is usually trying to be controversial, there is usually an element of truth in what she says if you just quietly listen and try to understand rather than just try to shoot the messenger because you do not believe the message. Being a moderate, I get to listen to both sides and realize that liberals are just as bad or worse than conservatives in that they try to shout down the opposition rather than respectfully listen and then quietly make their case based on logic and reason. This country needs civility.


Kelly   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Joy Behar really needs to brush up on, well—everything. She doesn't listen, doesn't know the facts or understand economics, isn't funny, and sensationalizes everything. Yes, Ann can be very "direct," shall we say, but she really does know what she's talking about. I think if Joy wasn't so obsessed with her own agendas, and really listened to people who have a greater understanding of government, and would try to appreciate facts over rhetoric, she wouldn't always come across as so insecure, defensive, and unintelligent, which she does and that's unfortunate.


Mark B   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Joy Behar is a silly little girl.


Mitch confused by Joy   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

I heard that Joy said she was going to be objective since being the host of Larry King she had to be a journalist. WOW!!! What a bias, ultra liberal, that only likes the sound of her own voice and opinions. If she thinks that people like Rush is an extremist that is the pot calling the kettle black. Joy is ignorant, and uninformed.

We need to keep in mind that this is the United States of America a country where a murder get a TV deal, writes a book or a movie is make; where a president take us to war with lies, y still gets a deal to write a book, etc. It's a country where for years a religious group has been raping kids and having multiple wives and the taxpayers are paying the bills, plus the media just brings it up when wants to get more rating.

The Octomom will get good deals.

Welcome to the Unites States of America.


Jane   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

So now CNN deletes blog posts they don't like. My previous post has disappeared. I dared to criticize Joy over her treatment of Ann Coulter. I am done with CNN.


Shan, Campbell River, B.C.   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

As a widowed mother who was left with seven children under twelve in 1997, and who had done this alone, I can say that the only thing that got me through and that produced great well adjusted kids was a good job, financial stability, supportive family, and sound mental health. The Octo-mom has none of these and her children are at risk. Just how much quality time will these children get with their mother every day? Half an hour tops? They have to be removed, she can have visitation. She asked for this, she has to live with the consequences and the doctor who did this should lose his license.


ken   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Ann rulz, the 1st segment tonight has got to be the best defense to obviously set questions I have ever witnessed. Joy had no chance, which anyone with half a brain knows, if you seperate the women on "The View" into single parties (excluding Hasselbeck) they would have difficulty completing a proper sentence on their own. I have often thought of Ann as the female Rush........But that is a good thing.


CEJ   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Joy you tried!
Larry you owe your viewers a couple more nights with Bill Maher, Arianna H.
and how about Al Franken a few people who speak the truth!
Ann Coulter is as false as her eyelashes!


George Faber   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

wow. Ann Coulter has no idea what she is talking about. If she thinks that single mothers are the cause of all problems, then that's her own beliefs and she's entitled to that. But she shouldn't get on national television and act as if she knows anything about the economy. She sounds like the girl at everyone's college who thinks she knows what's going on just because her daddy told her. She could do America a big favor by picking up an issue of the economist or the wallstreetjournal. That way, even when she twist the correct information, it will at least be correct!


Annalaura   February 19th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Good grief!!! This exchange reminds me of exactly why I don't watch CNN. Joy Behar was so argumentative that Ann Coulter could not finish a complete sentence. I am so sick of this liberal attitude that has brought our country to where it is now. We reward welfare recipients, having children and more children that they can't take care of. How can anyone dispute that fact? Wasn't welfare supposed to be 'temporary' assistance? Seems like it is a way of life. If one good thing can come from this Obama presidency, I hope he can inspire the black youth of today...someone needs to. I am so over these liberal groups trying to start ruling our lives, I am telling you it is the start of Communism. Soon, we will need to ask permission to travel, etc. I apologize for rambling and not delivering a cohesive argument but I have never been so worked up. This stimulus package? My husband and I are both self-employed...where is my $13 going to come from? The government certainly isn't bailing us out and we are drowning in worthless real estate in New Orleans, thanks to the Army Corps of Engineers. But every month, we pay the note on all of these 7 properties, because that is just the right thing to do. When do we get some help????????? I guess I need to be unemployed, have a house full of father-less children – then I will get some help.


Jim   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Now wonder this country is in trouble, there are actually people on this blog cheering about Joy standing toe-to-toe with Ann... Are you kidding me, Joy couldn't stand toe-to-toe with my 8th grade daughter. Uninformed, unable to form a legitimate question, let alone a follow up. Just terrible. I will not be watching larry anymore because of her.


Carl   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Agree or disagree with Ann Coulter, (I happen to agree more often than not) but the interview techniques used by Joy Bahar are not only inflammatory, but massively offensive.

Where is the truth in reporting when she asks if your fans hate Ann, Ann says no, and she then restates it saying that Ann said her fans love her?

Where is the truth when she asks a question and not only refuses to listen to the answer, but interrupts Ann so that the listening public cannot hear or understand anything that is actually being said?

It is apparent that Joy is truly afraid that the truth will be heard and the public will change their support for her agenda. I believe that I stopped watching the View for this very same reason.

I am a believer in point and counterpoint discussions and interviews. This does not qualify.

Thank the Lord that Larry doesn't do the same. While he is generally liberal in his opinions, he doesn't practice this obviously disrespectful and propagandizing style.

I sure hope he (and the CNN network executives) choose a more respectable host for his next absence.


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

FIRST OF ALL WE DONT ALLOW STUPID DRS TO PRACTICE IMMORAL INSEMINATION PROCEDURES.


George Gomez   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

I tuned in for tonights show thinking there was going to be a good debate. What I saw was an older lady (Joy), with NO CLUE. There is no way Joy could hold an intelligent conversation with Ann and appear to know what she (Joy) is talking about.

Joy was too attacking from the start. Hats off to Ann for taking it easy when sparring with an unarmed opponent.


Kenneth Manni   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

This wasn't even a contest. With all due respect, Joy didn't even belong in the same ring with Coulter!! Talk about "above my paygrade"!! Joy was/is clueless. Thanks for another vivid example of liberal intellectual bankruptcy. Poor Joy she couldn't even remember the question she asked. Coulter demolished all the uberliberals on the view. What were you smoking to think that comedian Joy would ever have a prayer all by herself. This was like bringing tissue paper to a gun fight. Joy, you should have stayed in school!!


phil   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

ANN COULTER HAS SOME MENTAL ISSUES. I COULDNT BELIEVE MY EYES ON WHAT SHE SAYS. PEOPLE LOVE OBAMA BECAUSE THEY WANNA HAVE SEX WITH HIM. SARAH PALIN IS WISER THAN HER.


t.taylor   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

lets all have teens worth of children.the government will help raise them.you no the drill 5 pound blocks of cheese.


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

CNN you clearly state that the comments are moderated by CNN with the CNN Comment Policy......... I feel some of the comments allowed to be posted are inappropriate.

Example:
Bill February 19th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

TOO BAD JOY BEHAR’ WASN’T ABORTED.

Really is that appropriate … You don’t have to like her but those comments are inhumane.


mark phoenix   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Nada wins she is all the topic on a very large Media show .what ever happened to the news show that watch a little girl that fell into a well?


Akosser   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter. How can liberals condemn anything Ann Coulter says when they themselves have said the most despicable things about conservatives, Christians, and Reputlicans, even when they were seriously ill. Joy Behar has made horrible, horrible comments about people who disagree with her, and she is obsessed with Sarah Palan and with blaming George Bush for anything.


Beth   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Look, I'm not a huge Ann Coulter fan myself, in fact there are times I can barely stand her..but this interview was atrocious.
'
Joy, I hope you read these, because this post is about you. I was appalled at the way Coulter was interviewed tonight. Even if opinions differ, there should still be respect and there was none. Giving Coulter a challenging question is perfectly fine and good, but Joy interrupted her on many several occasions, made snarky side comments after her answers, and posed questions in such a way that were antagonistic in nature.

Even if Joy didn't agree with her opinions at all, as an interviewer, since that is her JOB, she should've at least given Ann the ability to speak her peace without constantly having to be on the defense to the nth degree. There were things Coulter said that I certainly didn't agree with, but at the same time, I still wanted to hear what she had to say. I say re-do on the interview with Larry or Anderson, but definitly NOT Joy.


Tyson   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

I am so disappointed in someone like Ann. I live in Montana and raised Repubican but boy what a mess that lasy is. She is a hateful, hateful, hateful women. I have seen her now two times on air, also on View and you would think she would look back and be ashamed of things she says and how she treats others.

She should be forgotten and no longer given air time, she's not worth it.

Joy.....I think you are great all around. Take Care.


Janna   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Please stop giving ANN Coulter a chance to spread her hate. She is very dangerous, and she knows the Crap she barks is not true, she only wants to make controversey cause strife and sell more books. Very negative and unproductive. I have stopped watching FOX just to get away from the racist self hating fear they spit all day at thier audience. How can she talk bad about single mothers,.... She is a racist and she is afraid that the world is changing, and the thought of her own self worth may be in jeapordy. Thats real talk.... Ann get over it,.. and get a grip!!


m. walnite   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

correction-will watch if ann coulter is on. will read her book as well at least she backs her statements with facts. joy should be courteous and let the guest answer. she is too annoying and dumb.is this cnn or msnbc? thought more of you. no more. get rid of joy.


Wally G   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

What is really so sad about this woman, Ann Coulter ,is that people actually spend money buying this foolishness she speaks and writes in her books. When she makes these appearances, they are given the opportunity to see, in person, that they are being duped by what is no more than a self serving clown. They've probably made her quite wealthy, and they get nothing worthy in return.


Lisa   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Ann Coulter speaks her mind. Thankfully, this is still a right. If u don't want to listen, change the station.


Robert Schantz   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

It's a shame that Ann's ego gets in her way and that she thinks that her personal beliefs are what all need to live by. EGO. She is Edging God Out and not living a life that she wants people to believe she is projecting. Oh well..typical conservative christian. What would Jesus say???


Rod Legg   February 19th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

You can not teach common sense so I think take the babies away from this Mother before they end up on the Nancy Grace show.


Maureen Holm Kelowna BC Canada   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

The only thing worse than Ann Coulter spouting off her venomous diatribe (anything to sell a book) is Joy Behar saying anything at all. Ms. Behar asks a question but does not let Ms. Coulter finish the answer let alone listen to her answer.
Ms. Behar is arrogant, thinks she knows everything, and is the weak link on The View so why in Heaven's name would Larry King give her a spot on his show?
I immediately changed the channel and will continue to do so every time Ms. Behar is on.


bob   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

The "media having sex with Obama" - it's a metaphor stupid !!! I get it and I am not a member of mensa. I think anybody listening understood what Ann was saying. I do not know who was interviewing Ann, but it sounded from the discourse that she was from some daytime talk show . . . in any event, the interviewer was obnoxious, disrespectful, argumentative, condescending and constantly tried to talk over Ann rather than let Ann talk. Ann was the "Guest", but all this interviewer wanted to do was rage an attack on her. I wish Larry would have been interviewing Ann. I think that would have been far more productive. Ann was great and expressed some interesting views. And, for what it's worth, I am a registered democrat.


kim   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Way to go Ann. You are one smart lady that tells it like is.


Rebecca Willis   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I think the local Child Protective Services needs to be monitoring this woman's behavior with respect to parenting. If she is truly without income and a home other than that of her parents, she needs to be governed by social agencies whose purpose is to be the advocate of those children who have so many needs Ms Suleman cannot meet.


AATL1971   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I actually feel sorry for Miss Ann Coulter. She puts so much energy and passion into blaming and calling names, its pretty pathetic to me. Why not be apart of the solution and start a charity or organization to change what is eating at her so. This would be way more worthy, rewarding, and effective and she would actually be contributing to society.
I will pray that her heart softens, her mind be transformed, and that her spirit be set free of the torment she inhabits. she could do and be so much more if she would channel her hate, disgust, and ill feelings in another way...


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

JOY STOP INTERRUPTING PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is your problem? You are one of the rudest people I know. Geez


Nika   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I dont know why we even pay any attention to this lady.She is a cold lonely woman who spends her time pointing out the faults in the world and running her bigoted mouth instead of trying to do something to change it, like mentoring or educating the youth in order to prevent., Dont get me wrong I do believe that single motherhood is a factor in the crime rate. I was a single mother before I met my husband and I worried alot about raising my son alone and how I would be able to teach him how to be a responsible, successful and law biding man. I do my part in teaching him respect for authority, adults and women. I also teach him to pay attention to his studies because education is the key to the world. Not all children that are raised in single parent homes grow up to be criminals. I had both of my parents but some really good friends of mine were raised by a single mothers and they have no children and take care of herself because they watched their mothers struggle. I also have some friends how were raised by both of their parents and have no way to provide for their selves, one doesn't even have custody of her children because of her and her husbands toxic marriage. So I honestly do believe that who you grow up to be is determined by the crowd you choose to be around. Your parents could be the perfect couple have the perfect jobs and get you everything you need and want but if your best friend is scum there is a good chance you may grow to be one too. I am just happy that I saw enough suffering growing up in Detroit that I knew no matter what I would always do better for my kids. And I was raised with some damn sense. Thanks Mom and Dad

ANN LIMBAUGH-–Bill Clinton left office with a $127 Billion Surplus.,,Read, research, learn, TELL THE TRUTH...Quit insulting the American people's intellingence by deliberately lying and misrepresenting the truth. According to Bloomber News, "Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) - President Bill Clinton left office in 2001 with a federal budget surplus of $127 billion. President George Bush ran a deficit of $319 billion in 2005.


James in Kamiah Idaho   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

She is not an octomom... to call her that, devalues the first 6 children.

its this womans deliberateness that just emphasizes her dangerous obliviousness.


Lori M.   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Joy is a TERRIBLE interviewer; she always belittles anyone who does not agree with her ... a typical democrat! Like most democrats, she thinks George Bush and the republicans are to blame for all of our country's problems .... they take NO responsibility for any of it. THAT is one of the problems with this country ... people who don't take responsibility for THEIR OWN actions, and instead blame it on anything BUT their stupid actions and expect the hard-working tax payers and business owners to take care of them when they lived and spent way beyond their means! Democrats would rather penalize the responsible people and reward the others and encourage government dependency.

I say YEAHHH to Ann for having the courage to stick up for her opinions, and heaven forbid ... incur the rath of the holier-than-thou democrats! It sounds like she has more common sense than most ... I'm going to go out and buy her book tomorrow!!!


norma Villafana   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Joy was on the attack she came off as insecure and nervous. Cutting off her guest and yelling. Very scattered. Ann was intelligent and steady. Too bad because with more polish, Joy's points would have had more weight with me...


Gregory Wright   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Just a quick note, the stimulis package that was just implemented, will be paid for by those 14 children and all of the children in this country for generations to come. I'm insulted by the fact we are just talking about 8, there are 14. Get a grip America, and by the by, Joy you are just too nice tonight. Where is the Joy Behar we all know and love?


Gary Kraft   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Joy Behar did an incredible job of interviewing her ridiculously, two-faced, hypicrital guest this evening. However, Mann was prepared for Joy (previous VIEW appearances). I'd love to see Ann Colter appearing on THE RACHEL MADDOW show. I don't think even Colter could double-speak her way out of direct questions from Rachel.


maria   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

please stop having Joy on the show. She is terrible and is not good at interviewing anyone.


James   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

TO: Ms Coulter, the radio "idiot" has "your statement" 20 million listners. That equals to 7.142857% of Americans. I am one American that does not listen to the "idiot" or read your books. The only reason I have something to say tonight is that I watch Larry's show several times a week, and it just so happened the you are on tonight. The last thing I am going to say at this time; do you just talk that way because it sells books, and then You can pay your taxes. I worked for 37,5 years for the federal government and I paid my taxes..........................


Mitch confused by Joy   February 19th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

How can Dr. Robi Ludwig justify making diagnosis' about a person she hasn't even interviewed in person.


Vanessa   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

The woman is completely insane. Joy Behar was at a lost at trying to understand this highly sophisticated, intelligent stupidness coming from this woman! A poorly trained sensitivity level and just meaness on the part of Coulter.

Thumbs down!!!!!!!!!!!


Sara B   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Ann is too intellectual for Joy and as a result Joy had to resort to personal attacks in order to deflect the facts. Joy, stick to comedy, this interview was a joke.


Robert   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Larry, Please don't have Joy or Ann on again. Joy wanted to destroy Ann and she does that fine on her own. Joy is a horrible interviewer and Ann is looking for more headlines. Come on Larry... you're so much better than this program tonight.


Robert in Tulsa   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Ann Coulter is so offensive to the left because they just can't deal with the truth. Your host tonight was an insufferable liberal who clearly demonstrated the lack of tolerance for anything that resembles morals and standards. I'm embarrassed for Larry King that someone of such low character was allowed to sit in his chair.


alexandra   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

i am 16 years old and i admit i dont know much about politics- but i read anne coulter's book and if i as a 16 year old can understand and see the truth as i read that book than the ones who dont must obviously be R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D!!!
and Joy don't quit your daytime job- you SUCK!!!

*PALIN FOR 2012*


Mitch confused by Joy   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Joy shut up and listen a bit.


Ann   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

I am thoroughly enjoying the show. Ann Coulter is great! Too bad Ann Coulter couldn't have the whole hour. She is so knowledgeable and factual about so many subjects. She made Joy look like the narrow minded person she portrays on The View. Maybe Joy could ask a few more intelligent questions if she had more time.


Sally   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Keep up the good work ANN!!!


Linda(Austin,Tx)   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Right on Maria. When is Joy Behar's last day on CNN?
I've never seen so much rudeness coming out someone interviewing on national tv. She just can't be impartial at all as a host.


Sondra   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Ann is absurd. She has no talent and falls back on being obnoxious (bordering on hysterical) to generate publicity so that her books will sell. She is everything I hate about the Republican party - self-satisfied snobs that have little compassion and too much mouth. I


Diane   February 19th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

i wish Joy would actually open her mind and learn something from Ann Coulter.. I stopped watching the View because of Jooy and her flippant responses and horrific liberal views


trish   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

I would like to know why America is not pissed about the fact that Obama kept saying "change, transparency" and he has already signed about 4 bills without you, the people, having even seen or heard about it. Do you think it is right when we are in the financial crisis we are in for the Obama to decide in his 1st week of office to send our tax dollars to provide abortions in other countries. Look it up... it happened. Not to mention running around playing "fear tactics" and NOONE is calling him on it. But after 911 and the Cole( which happened the yr. before 911 people) Bush is not allowed to say terror is a threat!!!???? Hypocrits all over the place........WAKE UP IT'S ALL SMOKE IN MIRRORS!!! HE PLAYED YOU!


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

THE Duggers are different in that the childrens age are spread out over a period of time.


Briston   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Ann Coulter is scary. Is this what has become of the republican party's point of view? I'm a young republican (from GA, thank you) on the verge of crossing over to the Dems. Ann might have just convinced me that this point of view is NOT what I want to be associated with. Some one wake me up when Huckabee is president.


Helen, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

JOY, we don't care about YOUR opinion. This is not the View. Go home.


Barry Coates   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter ... what a perfect couple! Neither seem to feel they need to take responsibility for any of the venom they spew!! They should be forced to live together in the same padded cell. They really do deserve one another.


lisa   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

CEJ – Just because somebody doesn't say what you want to hear or think the way you do does not mean they are not telling the truth. 🙂


Jason   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

I hate you Ann. I truly HATE YOU! By the way, 20,000,000 Rush listeners equals about 6% of the U.S. population, not exactly a huge percentage but enough to qualify them as far right!!


Lisa   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

This is hilarious! I read about 30 comments posted and it is so of the CNN viewer, all against Ann......too funny. I guess CNN does stand for "Clinton News Network". Poor people have been voting for Democrats for 60 years, and guess what, they're still poor. Still sitting around waiting for the government to give them a handout.......shame, shame, shame.


M.J.   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Ann Coulter's brand of political diatribe is counter productive to our country's best interests. Americans from all political spectrums are in dire need of stopping the hostile, destructive rhetoric that encourages fringe behaviors and extremism in all its forms. Re-establishing civil discourse is imperative to go forward and find our best future. For that reason Ann Coulter's belittling, ridiculing and hostile style may be good for selling books and creating her brand but it is not good for our country.


nancygreer   February 19th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

and I don't want BUSH back ...but hella lot better than changing our Constituation and losing our right to bear arms, VOTE without ACORN and FRAUD...the stimulas haha BILL provides 5 billion for ACORN so the DEMOCRATs can BE ELECTED..It that what our founding fathers wanted


Sandi   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Hi Joy,
I'm a 14 year old practicing charismatic Catholic who is deeply offended by you. And it even hurts me more that you were once a Catholic, and are betraying us Catholics. Just because you once were, is NO excuse. Have you thought about taking a class in manners?

If you think something, that is one thing, but to keep saying them so other people will hear on national tv is another. If you can't say anything nice about the Catholic Church, I suggest that you not say anything at all.

God Bless, Sandi
( I'm a Catholic, and will stay one )


Dan   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

We should turn off our source of media when this insignificant freak (ann coulter) appers. She has no fundamentals, perspectives or solutions. The media shouldn't forecast this level of stupidity.


Tom T   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Joy Behar is the worst host, she never ever shuts up.


Gina   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

I seriously doubt Joy has enough sense to look back and see what an arse she made of herself during the interview.

Ann you demonstrated class yet again. Kudos.


Jeremy   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

OK all you republicans on here! what would be going on if mccain has won the election, and sarah palin was talking with the arabia television station??? and.... GO!


Brenda   February 19th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Larry, I cant believe you had this woman fill in for u, what were u thinking, she needs to go back to the view where she belongs. I happen to like Ann Coulter. .She does not respect your show, I thought her claws were going to pop ou t when she was talking to Ann. Did she forget for a moment she was on Larry King? And what a raunchy mouth, that red head has.


Tina, proud Single mother   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Ann C is such a hateful individual. She claims to be a conservative Christian but I don't believe she is spreading Christian love. I believe she is a hateful, spiteful and racist individual who wants everyone to live in her miserable world so she will not be all alone. What gives her the right to decide what single mothers should or should not do with their children. Many single mothers have raised very smart and successful children. Our president would be a prime example of this. She believes that Democrats have ruined the world but the last count I had is that Bush aka conservative republican ran our country in the ground the same way his father did. Quit spreading the hate and write something to unite the country.


james anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Eric, I agree that some comments are inappropriate. I have to believe you did not read all of them or you are extremely biased, as many about Ann were totally uncalled for, particularly Mike's from Florida (one of the earlier posts). How about some fair balance.


Gayle Smith   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Thank you for having Ann Coulter on your show. I have really enjoyed her books. She is my hero. She speaks for many women like me. She is intelligent and informative and I personally appreciate her for standing up for conservative values. Plus, I just love the Dugger family. I don't know how they do it, but they are amazing. I watched their show from the beginning and just want to hug all of them.
The octuplet mom is just nuts. She already had 6 kids that she could not support, why was she allowed to have 8 more?....I feel she is abusive to her other children by doing this.


Saju   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Ann, i listen to rush and i hate him. He is not only rude/abusive. He is a lair too. In one of his shows, he said Ozon O3 is not a gas!. Another time, he was making fun of obama for pronouncing 'Pakistan' diffrently, which by the way is the correct way to pronounce it!. He is pissed that Obama not pronouncing 'Pakistan' in American accent? Pakistan is not an American name its Asian!


Val   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Joy, you're awsome! I loved the way you you let Ann Coulter look ridiculous with her insane conservative Republican bigoted ideas (I doubt Larry could have done as well). It's scary how many Americans buy into Coulter's kind of thinking. These same conservative Republican folks need to take responsibilty for letting the last administration trash the U.S. economy and foreign policy the past 8 years.The current economic downturn did NOT start last fall – it's been on a fast slide since "W" took office.


Donald Van Dale   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Your show has suck to a new low with Joy Behar asking Ann Colter who she has screwed and her comment about vibrators on a prime time show.


bernardmccaffrey   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

joy kiss my ass for trying to push your horrible hate mongering of the right and loved Ann


phil   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

ANN COULTER IS A DISGRACE


aspiringyogi   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Joy, Dont Listen to the Haters! You are fabulous!


v.w.davison   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

i think that joy behar did a lousy job.she kept talking over
ann coulter. to the point that i couldnt tell what ann was trying
to say. joy is just as bad on the view


Sonja Strong   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

I've been reading through a lot of the blogs on Ann Coulter's appearance and am amazed at the venomous attacks on her. Can't you disagree with someone without being so personal? Hmmm, I think this is one of the wonderful things about America, the right to express yourself without fear of reprisal. That seems to have disappeared in the recent past. These days you have to be very afraid of what you say. If it's the wrong thing in the wrong venue, you're in big trouble. Ann Coulter is expressing her constitutional right to express herself. I appreciate her. I have no use for Barak Obama as an individual or as a president, but like it or not, he's my president and I would never villify him as these bloggers have Coulter. Rah, Rah, America.


Denise   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Someone needs to throw a "bottle" of holy water on Coulter...maybe then she will cease with her jibberish!


lynn   February 19th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

This interview is a glaring example of how Bush untied, er.. I mean, united, the country!

Bravo Joy!


Dawn   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

I am outraged!! This Ann Coulter has the nerve to blame single mothers for how society is!!? What? I am a 33 year old single mother. I would have never given my child up for adoption, for I owned my choices and consequences of having sex. Now I have a beautiful 9 year old girl, whom Ann thinks will turn out to be a burden to society because I did not marry her father!? I would have been miserable, and I have the right to be happy and successful. Who is she to judge? Children are taught what they live, and I live a pretty damn good life with rules and morals, which I teach my daughter. My daughter will not be a prostitute, a murderer, or a burden in society. Ann, please educate yourself a bit more, and perhaps your own issues in your life show through with your words.


Javier Moreno   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Hello Larry,

I am sorry but Joy is an awful replacement. I may not agree with Ann in some of her comments but agreeing or disagreeing does not mean we need to suffer from a bad interview. You have always been calm and PROFFESIONAL when your guest come in. Joy was totally the opposite. This was a shout match and honestly for the first time in long time I stopped watching your show. I have seen the comments by fellow watchers and I can say that eventhough Ann is controversial, a guest who is INVITED to appear in your show, should never be subject to attacks, generalization and attacks on her views. If Joy hates her view so much then why have Ann on when you are not there.

What makes Joy such an expert on this issues anyway.

Sorry Joy stick to the view. Also I dont watch the view so I really dont care about who or what happened during your hour. Go back to daytime and leave CNN for the pros.

GRADE: F-


Jane Morris   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Just look at the picture of Coulter on this CNN website–the woman is INSANE! Joy should give her hell. Coulter's just another opportunistic show-biz hack riding the soiled coattails of Rush Limbaugh. It may be his worst legacy–unleashing this type of amoral attention-seeker on the public–"writers," "columnists," "media personalities," (think O'Reilly), who have no real understanding of society or the issues, but are determined to get rich off their "outrageous", hurtful-but-meaningless outbursts.


Annalaura   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Last time I checked, the Duggers are married.


sonia   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Ann has so much self hate that she blames everything and everyone in society for it. Were you the product of a single parent? Because you didn't turn out to be one of societies finest either! Single parents are some of the best parents because their relationships with their children are based off of real love , not financial love! Besides there are plenty of successful single parents out here!


Todd   February 19th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Unfortunately, Ann is only an additional infection that has devastated our economy. Like many of her kind, she is taking advantage of our predicament.


kathy   February 19th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

I think people are threatened by Ann because she is so intelligent. Joy is narrow between the ears and rude and nasty to boot. I hope Ann doesn't sink to Joy Behar's level. She is a joke.


K. Johns   February 19th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Ms. Coulter's ignorance of the history of women in the U.S. post feminism is obvious as she speaks about the issue of "unwed" mothers and shotgun weddings "working out thirty years ago when the divorce rate was lower". The reason for lower divorce rates in the U.S. 30 years ago were economic as in fewer jobs for women and less pay for women than their male peers. As a mere matter of survival women had to marry when pregnant to avoid abject poverty.

Today, with more women in the workforce females no longer need men to financially support children. In turn, women are no longer forced to undergo the shame and judgment society placed on them for not being married, and their children are no longer forced to grow up in the shadow of shame.

By the way, Ms. Coulter makes no mention in her interview with Joy Behar of the approximately 2 million unwed FATHERS in the U.S.

Once again, Ms. Coulter comes off as an uneducated fame seeker .


dawn anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Does anyone remember the Dionne Quintuplets???? The Canadian government considered the parents unable to care for their children, and gave sole custody to the pediatrician. The children lived in a plate glass home across the street from their parents, who were unable to parent, hold, etc the girls from that point forward, while the public was paraded thru the building forever whatching the girls. The parents were eventually given back the girls, after the money was gone from all the merchandising by the doctor. Sadly it was too late. Some entered the nunnery, most died very young, very depressed, and suicidal. Whatever is decided, lets remember that the present as well as the future benefits must be decided now. Thank you.


RatherBGolfing   February 19th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Lamour, do you know the difference between a budget surplus (or budget deficit) and the national debt? I think not.


CEJ   February 19th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

The problem is not single mothers; it is absent FATHERS!


Annalaura   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Verge – do you read? Ever?


angela   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Joy is a pleasure to watch and evidently Larry KING thinks so as well, maybe you should tune out.


james anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Jeremy, I'm more centrist than Republican. I think people that can find nothing good to say about anyone from their opposing party are truly brain washed. But to answer your question, I really doubt Palin's first televised interview would be with an Arabian television station.


Al Friend   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Joy Behar is debunks the myth that ALL Pigs are intelligent. Her favorite song is from the Wizard of Oz; "If I only had a Brain" What a putz she is.


Anna   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

I watch Larry King Live every night. However, I am very disappointed when Joy Behar sits for Larry. She is extremely rude, unprofessional and comes across as ignorant and uneducated person (examples her interviews with Alec Baldwin, Ann Coulter...). Larry would never act like this himself!


aspiringyogi   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Omg, I love the Duggers they are like a train wreck. I grew up in a church that had 2 sets of families that had like 14 each kids. crazy! Horny Christians! lol


Jer   February 19th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

I always enjoy seeing Ann get liberals all worked up.


Ted   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

I am offended by Coulter's bigotry and anti-Semitism. As much as her "Mein Kampf" reference crossed the line on The View, to repeat it on this show and to try to hide her bigotry under an unfounded claim to have been victimized by the tone of her interviewer should have consequences for her access to air time on CNN in the future. Her "solution" of finding interviewers who aren't Jews speaks for itself.


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

JOY has a tendency to try and pick people apart and make fun of them if she does not like them and then tries to get her audience to laugh. I don't know if they laugh with her or at her.


Robert   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Far left or far right; either way if you're one or the other you're too far out there.


lisa IL   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

I agree with Ann 100% Joy is a JOKE!!


Diane   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Did anyone hear the plastic surgeon on the show THE DOCTOR'S TV today? He said in the woman's obsession to look like a movie star she DEFINITELY had plastic surgery. If this is true where did she get the money? What was sacrificied on behalf of her children?

Does she think that our tax dollars should now give her Medicaid, food stamps, WIC, etc?


Marge   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Ditto to NO MORE JOY. she was so worried that Ann was going to get the better part of the show...and she did ! Joy was talking over her to try drown Ann out...Time for retirment Joy.


Greg   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

I don’t get it, there are hundreds of thousands illegal that come here to have babies every year. Why has the media decided that these 8 children are of such great concern? Think it is more the media making a store.

Judge Larry is so concerned give me a break. There are illegal’s that come here getting medical and welfare and the media spends all this time focused on 8 children there are bigger issues.


LARRY STOP THE INSANITY..JOY IS RIDICULOUS   February 19th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

LARRY SHOULD GET THE MESSAGE..READING TRU THE BLOGS
SHOWS THAT THE OVERWHELMING COMMON COMMENT IS ABOUT THE RIDICULOUS INTERVIEW .JOY HAS BEEN SITTING IN SEVERAL TIMES AND GETS WORSE. SHE IS NOT A POLITICAL ANALYST
I HAVE TUNED OFF OF CNN BECAUSE OF HER. I WATCHED TONIGHT AS I AM NOT A FAN OF ANN BUT JOY GAVE ME REASON TO CHEER FOR ANN . I WAS SURPRISED THAT ANN WAS NOT MORE BLUNT WITH JOY..NOT AN INTELLECTUAL MATCH FOR SURE.
CNN KEEP YOUR VIEWERS...STOP THE INSANITY ..NO MORE JOY


Amanda   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Ann has the courage to say what many cannot, or will not. [*I think the ladder is correct].
Our society is so loose in everything moral and making sure that our "morals" are politically correct. How crazy is that!

America has become a crazy society, and yet, because Ann speaks the truth, she's being called horrible things?? What? Something is wrong with this picture. Being a liberal, I actually like her because someone needs to say what no one has the courage to. Im tired of paying for it!!! American Men,. if you are living with a woman who has your kids–marry her and take responsibility for it!!! Im tired of paying for your kids!!!!!!!! [Or your wifes botox].

I believe she scares people that she is talking about, because they know that she is right. She wouldnt get such a rise out of people if she wasnt. She is NOT saying anything about the character of the women who get pregnant, she is saying that if the children are raised in a healthy home [which is 2 married parents] that they will have a much better life. Why is that so bad? Its common sense. [Sorry it doesnt fit into the moral compass of being politically correct].

Better yet, why does that cause such an uproar? How hypocritical is it that our society is in such an uproar of Ms. Nadya Suleman, yet they say nothing about most of America being on welfare from unmarried couples who live together yet label themselves as single mothers. Its the same thing! When we do the census this year, see if the dad is living with the mother!! If they are, they should be exempt from welfare.

America accepts the single mothers who live with a man, not the Nadya Sulemans of the world. Many people are unmarried because they make a profit having a kid living off of welfare. Thats sick! At least Ms. Suleman is upfront about it! I think both are wrong, and so should America. Our society needs a stimulus alright! But not in the form of money!


Richard the Paralegal and Law Student   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

IT FIGURES THAT WOMAN WOULD LIKE ANN. WHAT ELSE IS NEW. ITS JUST LIKE HOW WOMAN LOVE SARAH PALIN. I BET ALL THE WOMEN HERE ARE LESBIANS, FAT AND UGLY. CAUSE NO REAL PRETTY WOMEN WOULD BE BLOGGING ON THIS SITE.


danny d   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

ann coulter knows whats up just like rush and monica crowley !


Jeremy   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

nancy~ in regards to acorn: what the hell are you talking about? that was such BS... and the people that reported the double voter registrations WORKED FOR ACORN. that is old news that has been dismissed. geez


Carl   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Sorry, I misspelled Joy's last name. It is Behar. I just have old fingers.


Teri Szucs   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

I am an ultra secular Jew, I am also the daughter of a holocaust survivor; in another time and place Ann Coulter would be writing a book on the uses of Jewish soap, she obviously despises you as the lower species she believes we are. In today's world she is just a pathetic WASP, to arrogant to be admitted even to the "Klan". Just because we are lucky enough to leave in a time were she's no more than a joke in bad taste, who and what she is here today or in Germany 1940s is a constant; for anyone to give her a soapbox , to legitimize her is shameful.


Lucho   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Larry is a cool kat he always lets his guests have their saying even when he disagrees with them,but this guy Joy man can't shut up long enough to hear the answers to his own questions.Wait she is a woman?.oh man I was completely fooled.


cathy   February 19th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Where is the money coming from, for the fancy manicures? Look at the past photos of when she was younger, her lips were thin, she had to have had plastic surgery. She is the most irresponsible person I have ever heard of>


Joe   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Lamour, yes, Jesus said for those who have to take care of the widows, homeless, less fortunate, etc.. That's for those who believe in him and want to follow his word. And millions of Americans do just that every minute of every day by giving of their time and money to charities and those others you mention. However, Jesus said nothing about TAKING by force from the those who, for whatever reason didn't want to follow that word or who maybe have already given but people like you and Obama still don't think it's enough. Get off your high horse and stop trying to use Jesus and his word to support your Communist leanings.


Daryl from Canada   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

It would be nice to have seen someone with more political intelligence and class to interview Ann, instead of Joy just turning it into a cat fight.


Sam   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Ann Coulter you and Rush kept up the good work, I say this because If you and Rush represent the Republician Party you will never ever be elected to anything , you guys just don't get it. The republicans are criminals every dam elected republican offical in Washington should be in Jail and that includes GW Bush . The Republican party pull off the last great bank robbery in US history you guys make Jesse James look like a Choir boy, but Ann your to stupid or Ingorant or both to see it. So kept up the rederic us liberals love it !


Evie Smith   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Ryan from Texas– you obviously have no clue. You need to take a spelling and grammer class, and follow it up with a political science class. It's obvious you watch Fox "News"– and no, I'm not on food stamps, own my own home, had the same job for ten years and I despise loose women that crap out kids and live off of my husband's and my paychecks. It's about time our country started putting less emphasis on party affiliation and more emphasis on solutions to the problems we are facing.


Rachel Thomas   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a races and there is nothing else to say about it. when she was talking about single mothers she was towards single black mothers.I am only 16 and I can see that myself. My only advise for her is when you are make a comment on a certain group say it.


Darcy   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

I was extremely disappointed with the interview of Ann Coulter on CNN. I am not an Ann Coulter fan, however, Joy Behar did not interview her, she interrogated her. If she is filling in for Larry King someone should make sure she understands that her role in this show is different than on the View. It is not about her view!


J.J.   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

I can't wait till this country falls apart because of all you hedonistic libs out there! I will enjoy watching you under the tyrannical thumb of a socialist dictator. As for me, I am leaving the country. You people sicken me. Anne Coulter speaks the truth and you are so far gone you can't even hear it! What happened to kindness and decency? What happened to God and Country, morals and values instead of partial birth abortions, same sex marriages, vulgarity and filth everywhere you look. Ben Franklin said it...give capitalism and democracy 200 years and then it will crumble upon itself because of mans greed and moral decay. God bless Ann and God Forgive the USA.


Regina Carter   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

In a warped and twisted way Nadia has found a way to never work again. She knows she will receive MONEY from people across the world thru handouts for having such a large brood. Unfortunately it is to her children's detriment.


Dr. Jon Hubanks   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

what can you really say... Ann Coulter tells it like it is. Yes, she may be a bit brash in her wording at times; however, when it comes down to the meat of a discussion she is completely correct in her book.


Darren Ritchie   February 19th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Ann Coulter is awesome! I love the way she refuses to let that liberal media "lady" Joy Behar get under her skin! Joy sat there and in more colorful words called Ann a "woman who gets around" and asked her about vibrators and other sexual nonsense that had nothing to do with Ann's book. Great come back for Ann when she turned it all around on Joy basically called her the same! Great job Ann and keep up the great work!!


Virginia Joe   February 19th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Larry,
Please do not let Joy Behar host your show anymore. She is supposed to interview people but all she did to Ann Coulter was attack her. I do not go along with a lot of Coulter's views
but she is worth listening to, If not just to understand what makes the right wing tick. So please try to get more diplomatic host in the future.
Thanks, Long Time viewer.


Rachel in Michigan   February 19th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

You can say that again. Ann Coulter needs to get a clue. She doesn't have kids does she? I feel bad for them if so.


james anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

angela, why are you still watching given your comments about Ann.


bkl   February 19th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

It's hard to read all of this "hate" language. Too bad political party affiliation isn't a protecte category so this would be illegal. Free speech has gotten out of control. Neither of these people represent my beliefs or opinion...both are arrogant and divisive. I think there is enough blame to go around to both parties for the mess we're in...what happened to "don't say anything if you can't say something nice?" Why don't we look for the good ideas each party has and come up with a nation that benefits from the "smarts" of both...instead NOTHING gets done because neither side will listen to the logic of the other–these two talking over each other (BOTH with closed minds) was painful and annoying. Dear God–please bless this USA!


Russell   February 19th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Larry,

What has happened to your programming? Why would you give Ann Coulter an audience? I turned you off when I saw she was on your show and have no plans of tuning you back in for some time to come.

Russ


Mike from NYC   February 19th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

RYAN TEXAS- Time to get a G.E.D!

I don't know know if everyone has given Texas the proper gratitude for giving the country George Bush. Your logic matches Bush's legacy.... and we know how well that went. Its your fault this country is a mess, yet you continue to support a Republican agenda that obviously didn't work.

I own my own business, did very well during the housing boom, and I support Obama. Entrepreneurs for the RIGHT way...OBAMA!!!

Or... I have a solution for Texas and their looney Republicans... Join Mexico- We don't want you anyway. I mean, Texas is practically Mexico right? You most probably have a problem with all the Latinos hanging out in your backyard. I'm sorry you're Texan, but hey not everyone could have been blessed with a smart and open mind.

Go to school. Get a degree! Then maybe you'll stop listening to your pastor and start listening to a scientist... they just know better.

Peace.Love.Joy Behar!


eric   February 19th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

James Anderson it was ONE(1) Example I am republican I could go through this entire blog but I didn't think that was nedded. That comment just happened to be the last one posted that ticked me off.


Jay   February 19th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Ann Coulter is a breath of fresh air. We live in a shameful society where capitalizing on being victimized out weighs the moral responsibility of being accountable. It is the life philosophy for many liberals.


Cheryl   February 19th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Joy! Joy! Joy! Read my lips:
The interviewer asks the questions.
The interviewee answers them.

Which one are you?


Vickie   February 19th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

I have heard of Ann, seen her books, and wanted to watch the Larry King show to listen to what she had to say and possibly find out more about her. Unfortunately, Joy would not let her speak. If Joy could have just shut up for one second maybe we could have heard from Ann. Joy is a terrible fill in host. Please Larry find a host who knows how to interview.


HANK PUGH   February 19th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Hello Joy,
As usual you are very direct and it is very hard to dignify the lack of class as Miss Culter DEMONSTRATED tonight and has written in her book. We feel you.
It is clear Miss Culter, Rush & Co. represent the demolition crew of american prosperity and not the costruction crew of America's success. America should Know the difference.
I guess they forgot the teachings of Chris on the mountain.

Hank


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Goodnight Joy! You can go to bed now. What a waste of an hour.


Heather   February 19th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Ann Coulter did a great job tonight! She has great principles and defends them with research. I know sometimes her demeanor is tough and rough, but someone has to say it. The liberals are taking over and are making this country fall apart. She knows what she is talking about. I am educator and they keep talking about all sorts of cuts. Well, where is Obama to help us out. I may loose my job because of the economy. What is a young person like me to do? I should give up and move to Canada. No wait, Obama will take care of me and buy me a house and I'll be on welfare the rest of my life and you all can pay for it because you voted for Obama. By the way, Joy should never host again. She didn't let Ann talk at all. Keep up the great work, Ann!


james anderson   February 19th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

And so, Richard the Law student, what king of men blog on here. What a sick group tonight. It is sad CNN has not blocked about half of the comments.


Lavell Thomas   February 19th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

On the octoplet


aspiringyogi   February 19th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

For some reason my Gaydar goes off when I see ANN? has she ever been married? what do we know about her anyway


linda Welch   February 19th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

please do not have joy behar as guest host again, unless you think rude, arrogant, unprofessional, and not capable of actually listening to an answer is what the viewing audience wants to hear. I for one could not stand the program for more than a few minutes.


angela   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I am sure Ann wouldnt want any of those VETS to ge a hand out


Marge   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I believe that Joy did a good job with her interview with Ann Culter! Culter talked over Joy and always changes the subject when she does not want to answer a question. Culter has no shame and the tv stations should not inflate her ego by having her on. She is a person that creates hate against americans. Readers take a better look she is not as smart and she appears. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs but do not critasize the Dem's if you are not going to bring solutions to the table Rep. Her and Limbo should be sent to an island for their ego's.

All Americans regardless of party need to come together because are country is going down the toilet. Wake up Culter followers.


AMIR   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Joy, Larry King you're not. What could the producers be thinking about?
What an unprofessional and discusting job Joy did,she should stick to hosting her Topper ware parties that she hosts every morning.
Ann Coulter was the champ and made her look like an idiot, she should have done her homework. You go Ann


CINDY MC DONALD   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

OctaMom should be committed and ALL of her children should be adopted out to loving families who can care for them financially and emotionally. Obviously OctaMom is unstable. The IVF doctor should be striped of his license.
As for the Duggers, they are a wonderful family. AND they can care for them. All of their children are polite, caring, helpful and gentle. Unlike OctaMom, can't take care of the first 6 and should have never been implanted with anything. What was that doctor thinking? Perhaps he's in on it with OctaMom and were thinking they could cash in on these poor eight souls. They don't stand a snoballs chance in hell. Get them away from her and she should never be allowed to give birth to any more children. She only cares about herself.........look at what she is putting her eldery parents through.


Joe lin Dubuque   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Ann is no different than Rush, O'Rielly or Hannity, when they know the interviewer is right, they just start screaming so no one else can get a word in edgewise. The old "scream and cut em off tactic"....These people aren't worth the time of day......pathetic


HARD TO BELEIVE   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

HARD TO BELIEVE THAT JOY WORKED FOR A RADIO STATION.
DOING WHAT...


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Larry can't wait for you to get back.


Diane   February 19th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Great show with Ann Coulter.. and Joy Behar. I like Larry King but whenever he is gone I would like to see Joy Behar. She does an excellent job. Way to go Joy.. I always watch The View too.

Great show this evening with Angels in Waiting. So sorry the mother is losing her home and that the kids may possibly be spil up.. sure hope they keep actuate records so the kids can reunite in the future.

One more thing. Does Joy Behar have a stand up DVD? Will she ever come to St. Louis, MO. Would love to see her comedy routine..She is ever on Comedy Central?


Carl   February 19th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

I do so wish that Nadia Suleman would just vanish from the media.

The courts in California will do whatever they want about it without regard for what the people want anyway.

I do hope that the people will stop with the death threats, but I am very glad that certain publicists have dropped her. Boycott all you want. I know I will, but we are not supposed to be a nation of savages reigning violence upon ourselves, or anyone else.


bob   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

So "Bill" (Maher??) dropped in to say "Too bad Joy Behar’s mother didn’t have an abortion", hmmmmmmmmmmm.


Donald Van Dale   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Sorry,I should have typed sunk instead of suck in my comment earlier.


danny d   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

thank you ! Ann Coulter good night !


Lucho   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Hey CNN guys burn the seat that Joy used or I'll report you to the Health Department.


Mrs. Norma Peterson   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

ANN, THE WORLD IS BETTER BECAUSE OF YOUR WITTY SENSE OF HUMOR AND YOUR HILLARIOUS SARCASTIC COMMENTS. THEY JUST DON'T GET IT AND NEVER WILL! THAT'S WHAT IS SO FUNNY ABOUT IT ........YOU KNOW IT.. ....AND SO DO I! YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!ROCK ON!..!!!!!!


Rob   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Barack Obama loves Canada and we love him. Please protect us from people like Ann Coulter.


Sherry V Kirby   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Joy Behar, I don't know how you listen to Ann C. Damn she is a loud

mouth bit h, if you know what I mean. You've got more patients than I

do. I was hoping you would slap the hell out of her, because I sure

would have. She's a good match with Rush Limbaugh, they can just

go and screw their eyeballs out, "please, please" the American public

could never be so lucky. Really!


Teresa   February 19th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Ryan from Texas this one is for you buddy....

Mexican and African also end in I CAN

Enough said!!!


Bob   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

What a hate-filled woman...rest assured Ms. Coulter, hell will sooner freeze over before i will ever read one of your books, let alone further enrich you by purchasing one of your books.


R. Roberts   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

I cannot stand Joy Behar (or Barbara Walters), and she is no match for Ann Coulter. How can Joy criticize anyone. She has a real trash mouth.


DebbieKat   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

"Judy February 19th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Why is it that Joy can not take the heat when Ann talks negative about the loser democrats. I love Ann she justs tell it like it is!! I also love George Bush and his Christian beliefs!!"

I'm sorry... christian beliefs???? What are those? Bombing people to oblivion? Ripping off citizens' tax money and giving it to bankers? Frying people in electric chairs? Ruining the environment and not caring as various species go extinct because of policies that he put into place? Poor workplace safety because of policies he put into place? Are you right wingers for real???? I'm not christian, so maybe I just don't get your ideology. It seems like "do what I say and not what I do" to me.


Robin   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

I find it interesting that many of the liberal bloggers cannot spell and use poor grammar. They seem uneducated.


Jack   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Joy is rude and pathetic and I am no fan of Ann Coulter. But the View is perhaps one of the dumbest shows on TV and Joy helps prove it. Why Larry do you give up your time to Joy who really is not liked by your regular viewers. She is abusive, pushy and again rude. Much worse than even Coulter. Get rid of her !!!!!!


solomon   February 19th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

WHY?


Lavell Thomas   February 19th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Made wrong comment first time.I beleive know woman should have more then two babies at a time because they one set of breast to feed them.God made set of twins and they wher Cain and Able.


Rich   February 19th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Ann Coulter will say anything to sell her books!! Enough Ann.....a true conservative woman at your age would be married have kids and be raising a family by now!! You are a little girl!!


phil   February 19th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

ladies and gentlemen that woman ANN is a big fool with no sense of reasoning . i have never seen anything like this on TV


Juli   February 19th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Ann Coulter has class and honesty. Joy Behar really needs to close her mouth once in a while so she can listen to what is being said. Ann can be over-the-top but her message is right on.


carol kesling   February 19th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

the liberals are not taking over............... bush & chenny were the liberals, WITH OUR MONEY in iraq. all the money he spent there could have fixed alot of our problems " here at home" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rebublicans have RUINED our country, us liberals are just trying to clean up their MESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gooooooooo obamaaaaaaaaaaaaaa& bidennnnnnnnnnnnn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Z   February 19th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

I think Joy did a great job to have to listen to Ann C. even her voice is nerve racking. The pic on CNN of Ann makes me think the lady(?) is really crazy. She will say anything to sell books and make money. Get a man if you can it may help!


Hugh S   February 19th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Good call Angela, especially when you consider that more than 250,000 of our homeless are vets. I'm sure many welfare recipients are also vets.


K. Johns   February 19th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Excuse me, HEATHER, in your post did you say you are an "educator". If that's the case, God Help Us All.
How can you blame the current recession on President Obama when he was just recently sworn into office? The recession is in its 14th month-thanks to the legacy of George W. Bush.
Heather, I certainly hope you don't teach history.


DebbieKat   February 19th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

I think Nadya Suleman is mentally ill. She should NOT be receiving death threats. But I'd like to know why her fertility doctor still has his license. What irresponsible behavior. What a sad situation for all those kids. I saw a news report that the grandparents are in default on their mortgage too. So what... now we have 17 people who will soon be homeless? 14 of them babies?


Meena   February 19th, 2009 10:07 pm ET

What is wrong with Joy asking what kind of show should the octamom have and that may be she is insane? Can't anyone see that octamom is someone who has learned how to abuse the system to get money by producing poor tiny kids. I wanna know if she is unemployed how did she pay for a very expensive procedure such as IVF? She, her doctor and whoever is paying for everything are all irresponsible citizens. This is all ethically and morally wrong.


Roberto   February 19th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Larry! Where are you? I was looking forward to another high quality interview by you, somebody whose agenda is to bring to the public the best information possible in the most objective manner possible. Instead I witnessed a shameful performance by Mrs. Joy Behar, behaving in the most rude and disrespectful manner I have ever seen a host behave in a serious talk show.
When I watch a talk show, I do so because I am interested in listening to the guest's ideas so I can consider their value in my own terms. Mrs. Behar sabotaged the whole process by inserting her own obvious agenda to try to embarrass Mrs. Colter, instead succeeding in thoroughly embarrassing herself. What a waste!
CNN, shame on you! Larry King deserves a break now and then but next time, please make the effort to find a suitable and capable replacement. This was just embarrassing and painful to watch!


Sharon   February 19th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

LOL Beverly!!! I'm a conservative woman with a max of 5!! Conservative men LOVE conservative women! I'm sure liberal men love conservative women too...secretly.

Go Ann!


TallieMississipi   February 19th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

Why is the media given the octomom so much attention? The media is going to stop eventually, So Stop NOW??????


gates mills   February 19th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

ANN:

YOU ARE A LONE AND SHINY BRIGHT STAR IN A BIG UNIVERSE. I COMMEND YOUR CRITICAL THINKING, SENSE OF HUMOR AND DEMEANOR. Don't let the creeps get you down !! Keep up the good work!!

And, by the way, the question referencing a comment by Rich Lowry, I know a Rich Lowry, and I bet he is the same one who made the comment 🙂


Maggie   February 19th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

Why do you have Joy Behar on the program. She is even more overbearing on Larry King then on the View. She sounds like that witch from the Wizard of Oz.


Betty from NJ   February 19th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

Please ....NO MORE JOY!! Read all the comments! I would say that it's about 80% against having Joy host and 20% for her!! This country is in sad shape if she is the best female interviewer you can find!!


Ken Braun   February 19th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Anne was great I never realize how intelligent she really is. Great Great entertainment!

I always thought Anne was to thin; Now I Think she is perfect.


Carmen Shrimplin   February 19th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

I WON'T BE WATCHING THE VIEW THANKS TO JOY


Dan   February 19th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Joy, why is it that you had to come off as hateful and condescending in your interview with Ann? Why did you keep trying to cut her off with your satirical & judgmental questions imposing your own assumptions? Regardless of Larry's views, he appears to be much kinder, even to those with whom he disagrees. You could really learn alot from him.


Michelle in Kalama, WA.   February 19th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

Jeremy,
God is good! But, it is a relationship with Christ that is the good thing... religion can be toxic if those who say they're Christians are only talking the talk and not walking the walk. Your statement about Christians having the same hair is truly funny!!! Unfortunately there are those who are wolves dressed in sheeps clothing and there are a lot out there.


Enlightening Mind   February 19th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

I understand that Joy didn't behave very professionally, but how can you when your dealing with a person who is SUCH a walking contradiction and completely inaccurate? If she would like to talk about the bible belt, then she needs to remember her bible.

Here are some biblicial verses that come to mind when I hear these 'arguments.' Adtually they're more like fights.

1 Peter 2:23 (New International Version)
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

Exodus 23:6 (New International Version)

6 "Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.

Leviticus 19:15 (New International Version)

15 " 'Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.

Leviticus 23:22 (New International Version)

22 " 'When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the LORD your God.' "

Leviticus 25:35 (New International Version)

35 " 'If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you.


Lydia   February 19th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

You did a great interview Joy! You are probably the only one who can stand up to Ann's hateful drivel. I really can't stand Ann C. She doesn't pay any attention to facts. When Joy mentioned that Clinton left a surplus, Ann replied that it is just on paper. Well...YES!!!!!! it is on paper because it is a fact. Is it any wonder that America is in such a mess when so many people actually believe the propaganda of Ann and Rush.


CHALLENGE TO CNN   February 19th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Reading the blogs on interview with Ann C. most viewers are commenting on the bad and unprofessional interview. Most are commenting on Larry Kings bad choice in having Joy interview
I challenge that they acknowledge this on the show. They do talk about the blogs but do not mention the real feedback.
How about Ann and Joy reading all the comments posted tonight.
How about Ann interviewing Joy about how the public views her and the interview.
Ann is contiversal but at least intelligent. I though she was reserved she could have easily showed Joy up but choice to take it instead of dishing it out.


Heather   February 19th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

In response to John K.: We only have President Bush and the DEMOCRATIC Congress to blame for our recession!


Amanda   February 19th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Great comment JJ. I am not saying that I agree, but it was very well spoken and intellectual.


Kathy Oxnel   February 19th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

These comments about wishing that Joy was aborted – are so stupid and juvenile and crass and cruel. The strangest thing is that they are probably being made by pro-lifers who really only believe in hate and not in life at all.


Katya   February 19th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Bill Maher is the "IDOL" of the Godless . . . LOL . . . they are all Oxymorons ! ! !
.


Chris   February 19th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Larry,

If you have any pull with your bosses convince them that Joy Behar should be regulated to daytime gossip sharing which she is so perfect for. People that watch your show do so to see a professional interview with colorful people from "both sides of the aisle".

Agree or disagree, Coulter pulls out facts that support her point. All Joy can do is reduce the conversation to a salon catfight.

The reputation of your show was hurt tonight. Don't even get me started on her idiotic questions for the Duggars...


TruthSeeker2009   February 19th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Oh brother!

If God is so good, why hasn't he created more ozone to replace what we humans have helped deplete? Or rendered nuclear waste safe, or coal sludge good for your diet?

Get your heads out of the good book and look around at what we're doing to this planet for our own selfish, vanity driven, prideful needs.


Klaudia   February 19th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

there is no sugar coating anything, Ann speaks the truth...people that can't handle the truth are the ones that don't "like" her. Peace.


Karen   February 19th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

God bless you Joy. You were such a professional. I don't know that I could have listened to her spew her hatred and stayed so calm. You are to be applauded. Again Ann exposed herself for the hateful creature she is. I almost pity her.


Chuck D   February 19th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

K Johns: Excuse me, HEATHER, in your post did you say you are an “educator”. If that’s the case, God Help Us All.
How can you blame the current recession on President Obama when he was just recently sworn into office? The recession is in its 14th month-thanks to the legacy of George W. Bush.
Heather, I certainly hope you don’t teach history.

lets get realistic. The problems of recession did not begin to happen untill the democrats took over congress, and the lending practices to people who never could afford a home or afford a larger home. You wait till every company in the US has to do what the Dems say we will be like China and Russia, Venzuela. Is that really what you want?


Madge   February 19th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

It seems clear that Anne actually never has had the ability to admit she is wrong and I think it is important for her to know that the primary reason my husband and I tuned in tonight (though we do watch Larry King Live regularly) is because we are not fans and were also interested to see how unhinged she has become. This fact alone proves she is wrong in regards to her earlier comments and theory regarding the Rush Limbaugh audience. Sorry Anne...talking aggressively does not mean you can actually create truths. Good luck and we wish you lots of good therapy!


Nancy   February 19th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Dear God....kill me now!!! I walked in from work tonight to watch Larry King & found the foul, unfunny Joy Behar sitting in tonight! I quit watching The View because of her mean, hateful, & vitriolic attacks on anyone who didn't share her opinions. Besides that....she's not even funny! So bye-bye, Larry....I won't ever be watching when Joy is there.


elaine marie sidoti   February 19th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Joy Behar was foaming at the mouth with each question. Shame on you Joy. I am not a fan of Ann but she is smarter than you.


CEJ   February 19th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Ann Coulter lies unblinking and straight faced into any camera!

Anyone interested in the facts and not Ann's spin should check out
the website Media Matters.com she has a very long rap sheet and
media matters has it all documented!


Ruth   February 19th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

I love Ann Coulter, she has the nerve to say what a lot of people think but would never say in public. I too believe that single women should not be having children if they can't support and meet the the financial demands to care for them. Many women get pregnant and then rape their state for every cent of assistance they can get. If you can't take care of them keep our legs shut. Why should the country or state these people live in foot the bill because they are irresponsible. I believe states should be able to force contraception on women that have mutliple children and have never held a job, They are IGNORANT, IRRESPONSIBLE AND SELFISH. Why should my tax dollars support such poor life choices. For all other women that have jobs and care meet the financial demands of having children without financial assistance-have it – make all the babies you want.


Rafael Hernandez   February 19th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Ann must go why so much time on this nut job? get someone on the show with facts not someone spewing hate...Ann must go!


Steve   February 19th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I agree with George. Joy Bahar has absolutely no business filling in for Larry. My God, the woman is not only clueless about life and what made this country great, but she is one of the most offensive people on TV! Asking rediculous questions and then not allowing Ann to answer. It is for reasons like this that CNN continues to be a second rate news outlet. The bias is so think you could cut it with a knife.


T. Weatherford   February 19th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

Ann Coulter was great! What I have noticed is that, once again, the "compassionate" liberals have taken to criticizing and making fun of anyone who does not agree with them (those who are commenting on someone's grammar, spelling, etc.).


Jeremy   February 19th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

i agree michelle. many wolves hide behind religion. i do hope that you don't think that ONLY people who believe in Christ, and the Bible for that matter, are the only people who live life loving others, doing good, helping the suffering, and caring for those who need it. i was raised in the baptist church. when i traveled the world, and met hundreds of new people and had new experiences, i can to a realization. religion is man made. spirituality is eternal. why can't we as human mammals open our minds to the idea that the scientific facts about our origins, the origins of the cosmos, and the harmony of the universe all around us, IS the mysterious unknown that motivated our early ancestors to make up stories to explain what we can now explain by science. if ANYTHING, science should make us marvel at the world and all that is in it with an even MORE humble attitude than any old book of jewish fairytales.


shirley   February 19th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

No more Ann-please, I am trying to get the last 8 years out of my mind. She makes me think of Bush and Rush. PLEASE NOT MORE!


TruthSeeker2009   February 19th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

sorry klaudia, nobody has a monopoly on the "truth".

Especially someone whose books and comments are so regularly debunked for all the factual errors and flat out lies they contain.

Not "sugar coating" something would be fine if she could get some facts straight from time to time. But then again, the types that admire her and percieve her strident, hateful, factually vacant rants as the "truth" aren't exactly the sharpest pencils in our collective box.


Gary   February 19th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Rush and Ann should run for President and VP in 2008. They both think they are so popular with the American people with their extreme right wing opinions and IF they won I would then start to change my thoughts and opinions. But after all of the hate mongering with Rush, I doubt very much that you will find out that you are as popular as you claim.


Kay Theisen   February 19th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

I have never commented before. I was shocked that a host
would be so rude. I would hope you would realize that this
is not what we expect on Larry King Live.


one love   February 19th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

Hi Joy,it was a delight to see you sitting in for Larry once again.I must say your guest Ann Coulter is quiet a character.I sincerly believe she needs to have her head check out.She has such strong take on single mothers.I really think she should rethink her views on some of the factors that causes a women to become a single mother.I hope if in the future miss Coulter happens to fine a man and have children, she will also fine the remedy for keeping him.If not miss Coulter ,you would autermatic become a single mother.my question to you would be,will you give up your child for adoption as you surguested tonight?.


Barb   February 19th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

Amanda,

Children who are raised by a married couple does not necessarily equal "healthy". The problem here is that when people try to generalize they turn to be flat out wrong. What about the child who is abused in their traditional "nuclear" home, but raised well without abuse by their single mother?

What about all the hard working single mothers, who are raising wonderful children? The example that these mothers set is amazing. It is dissappointing to see how easily individuals stand in judgment in others. If we all just focused on being the best persons, rather than be the first to rebuke others our society would be a lot stronger. It would also set a much needed example for our children.

I'm shocked to hear that folks find Ann to offer intelligent knowledge on any subject. She


sonia   February 19th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

I am very disappointed at way in which Ms. Behar conducted her interview with Ann Coulter. It was obvious that she was desperate to make her look bad. Instead, it was Ms. Behar who looked terrible. Ms. Behar, you are far from being an adequate interviewer for a show like Larry King Live. Go back to The View, and stay there!


Marguerite Neimanis   February 19th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

Joy. You are a comedian, but one one with enormous strength and integrrity. You have a fabulous way of making your point in a "light-hearted", comic way. I was astounded to see that you were "taking on" Ann Coulter. I can't think of a better person to do this. In spite of our family quickly departing the room when they heard Ann C. spewing out her venom I stuck it out. She is the most despicable person that I have ever listened to. Joy, you did a great job and you really need to be congratulated ..... I could see that it was not an easy job to do. I only wish that someone like Ann Coulter did not get the publicity that she gets. CNN has a world-wide audience. Promoting her book on this station certainly ensures a pretty hefty income from book sales. I hat e to see any positive encouragement and promotion of her venomous views. It's too bad that she can't embrace an new president that actually has brains and a hopeful outlook for Americans. Who is god's name made such a mess of the U.S. of A. that is impacting the whole world? Who had the first "bail-out" that she hissses at now? It was the Republicans! Now she expects that the new adminstration shoudl fix all this....is less than a month? Boy...the Republicans sure have a lot of trouble with their short-term memory.
I could go on and on.... but from a Canadian supporter....you go girl!
Marguerite.


Bernie   February 19th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

Larry: Please have someone with some intelligence go up against Ann Coulter next time. Joy Blehar is just too ditzy and no match for Ann's intelligence and wit.


Evelyne   February 19th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Would everyone want to take away these children if she was married and they did not have enough funds to take care of their children. Other couples who have had a lot of children are not scrutinized like this woman is.


Emily   February 19th, 2009 10:34 pm ET

I absolutely detest Joy Behar & I was very disappointed to see her on CNN tonight. I, too, quit watching my previously favorite show, The View, because of her. I grew tired of feeling sick to my stomach every morning when she began spewing her brand of hatred for anyone that she didn't agree with. Her negativity every morning was detrimential to my sense of well-being, so I just stopped watching & I really don't miss it. Furthermore, I will NOT watch any program that uses Joy Behar as a guest host or participant in any form or fashion.


R M Laverty   February 19th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

who was that unpleasant and unattractive woman you had pitching biased dishonest questions at Ann Coulter this evening?
get rid of her – or try to feed her honest questions and get her to listen to the answers.
(I know it's entertainment, but really!)


Chris   February 19th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

The United States is slowly going down. You wanted to save a buck by sending employment over seas. Well now it is time to feel the backlash. Its amazing to see how people are reacting to this. Do you as a person ever notice how you act . Just for example: Drive down a highway for about 20minutes. You will see how people care only about them selves by not using blinkers, cutting people off, speeding. Yes you people that do this, do you realize your putting other people at risk, NO, cause your the only one on the planet.

Also the more laws that are created the less free you are. How many laws need to be created until there is no freedom.

One thing I have noticed is Americans want everything but do not want anything taken away. Greed............lots and lots of GREED...........all great powers fall due to greed. But something I noticed about Americans through my travels, is that they keep a blind eye unless it benifits them(not all americans but most).

There is a world out there besides the good old USA. Remember the United States is the baby on the block when it comes to the global community. The baby trying to tell the elders how to live their lives.

I am an American and ashamed at how we treat our brothers and sisters around the world. The backlash of the way America runs is coming to light this just didn't happen because of 911, look back at history. Every leading power falls. The places I have been the people from those countries think we are aragant, self centered with no respect for others. What a feeling I get when I hear that. It makes me feel confused cause I thought we were doing good. But good for who?

Remember how we got started. Our great nation was founded by people leaving their own country to get away from what was wrong, to create a free world. Now look we are back to where our forfathers tried to get away from. How ironic..................We should be a better people to realize this but we are not we just try to survive at any risk.......Very sad for our future if we keep going in this direction............


Kathy M.   February 19th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Hey! Ann Coulter was correct about John Edwards' character. Everyone was angry because she said he was bad, and he turned out to be pretty slimy.


Robin   February 19th, 2009 10:39 pm ET

T. Weatherford: I am a conservative! Read the comment!


Mary   February 19th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

I'm no fan of Ann Coulter. I've watched Joy Behar on the View and, aside from her jokes (she is a commedian after all) found her to be a very intelligent woman. However, I was very disappointed in her interview with Ann Coulter. Instead of asking thoughtful questions and waiting for Ann to respond, Joy kept interrupting and talking over Ann. This interview could have gone so differently if Joy had just listened...


Kelly   February 19th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Ann Coulter might actually have something intelligent to say, however you would never know it because all she spews out of her mouth is sarcastic comments. I don't even know what her point is if she can't even be an effective communicator.


happyhappy   February 19th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Joy should be respectful.....
Why should anyone be respectful of Ann Coulter????

When has SHE ever been respectful of ANYBODY?

All she does is spew hate, for anything that is different than her beliefs.

Why do the networks even give her airtime?
Joy was totally fair....I know how she feels about what AC writes, and she was very respectful considering the stupid lies that were coming out of her mouth.


Steve in Allen, TX   February 19th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

What exactly are Ann's qualifications? Yes, I know that she matriculated from a couple of America's premier universities, but just because she completed the core curriculum doesn't mean she is completely qualified to speak publicly. Also, just because she wrote a few books, doesn't mean she has actually performed any real research. Too much of what Ann says indicates she is either a) mentally unstable, b) retarted, or c) she wants to get attention (shock value). There are plenty of people that have produced less inane drivel than what Ann produces, and they are far more qualified to speak publicly. Just being an author doesn't qualify her or anyone else to espouse their unqualified ravings on television. On the other hand, I think that Ann is evidence that the US education system (including college) is seriously flawed.

What I think Ann, Rush, Bush, and most of the Republican party need to do is go back to school (wherever they left off) and focus on economics (micro and macro), history (US and World), and philosophy (specifically meta-cognitive science) courses. Until they complete these courses and are able to clearly articulate the flaws in their current thought process, they should be treated like invalids and not allowed to wander around without some kind of supervision.

Also, while I don't generally condone censorship, I will make an exception in the aforementioned cases. I believe, and I think I speak for the majority of the country, put some duct tape on all of their mouths, prevent them from ever writing anything, and for God's sake prevent them from ever being on any form of public media. Their kind of stupidity is toxic and is a threat to our national security.

Finally, and hopefully Ann understands this clearly. No I did not buy any of your books, nor will I ever. I downloaded a few of them using a peer-to-peer file sharing tool, so I could make an informed decision about your writing. So allow me to reassure you, many of us (moderate, liberal and even some conservatives) all hate you. We hate you because you represent and defend the core problems with this country. You fail to see that the actions and policies which you deify, is actually a Godless and blasphemous direction which undermines the tranquility and stability of our great nation. What Christian goes on television or writes books making false claims (lies), judgments, stereotypes, and demonizes innocent people? Understand, the reason most people buy your book is for their college Philosophy course. It makes excellent fodder/case study for fallacies (meta-cognitive) and group dynamics (conflict avoidance) discussions.

CNN, I realize people like Ann and Rush may help ratings, but you must ask yourself at what cost. It is irresponsible of you to invite any of them on television, so please refrain from allowing them to perpetuate their venomous ideology.


bob   February 19th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

ANN YOU ARE A BRIGHT AND SHINING STAR IN A LARGE AND DARK UNIVERSE. Do not let the creeps get you down !! Keep up the good work !! Keep telling it like it is !! 🙂

Joy was HORRIBLE in every way. This was not an interview. Joy simply raged and raged, like an attack dog, all over the "Guest" of the show in a disgraceful way. But then, those with no moral code do not know what disgraceful is. Joy's behavior was SHAMEFUL. Larry, I love your show. Have watched it for decades. This is the first night I have ever blogged. I must say, Joy was a poor representation of what you do.


PATTY   February 19th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Ann Coulter is America's Heather Mills. Obnoxious and annoying!


Kathy   February 19th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Love Ann, Rush and Palin. If more conservatives would say what they think instead of being so politically correct, our country would be a better place. Thank you Ann. Tell it like it is. If someone is offended, that's too bad. Everyone should have freedom of speech, even people I disagree with. Our freedom of speech is being lost because liberals are trying to kill conservative views.


Josephine Silvey   February 19th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

I am very displeased with Joy Behar demeanor and rudeness toward Ann Coulter! She was acting very "ugly". If I come across Joy Behar on any show, I will change the channel! She is mean spirited woman and does not represent me.

Ann is way smarter, better looking than Joy and can run circles around her. So she can hold her own but that does not mean that she should be disrespected! What happened to TV etiquette?

I watch Larry King every night, but if he has Joy Behar on his show again I will have to reconsider.


Ted   February 19th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Ann, if you applied your NASDAQ-style ticker for fair comment to yourself, you would be a mute.


Melissa Rodriguez   February 19th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

I cannot stand Joy Behar! She and Barbara Walters think that they can fool the viewers with their one-sided spin on everything. They need to get over Sarah Palan and her popularity with a large number of Americans. Have they ever noticed how Joe Biden embarrasses the President every time he gets up to speak. The pompous Vice-President doesn't know when to stop talking.


Elaine   February 19th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Well, I certainly can see by many of the comments made that a great many CNN viewers have an arrested developmental age of around 13. Most liberals categorize people as "nice" or "mean." Time and time again most liberals refuse learning anything about their government but vote as if they're voting for prom king (or queen). So sad how so many have been fooled by all the hype. Sorry to say, but the "emperor has no clothes...." Just give this a little time and all you fools who voted Obama in will have to endure this mess the democrat elite is getting us into. When will you libs learn it isn't about doing anything for the poor, etc; it's all about keeping the status quo of taking our money for their worthless programs and their positions in government.

Joy Behar lives in her little bubble of NYC and unless it's directly affecting her; then it's not happening. She is so not the interviewer she thinks she is and what's with all that immature crap with orgasms? She's so out of touch (pardon the pun) with what the public would like hearing. She just wants to get her digs in and stick her tongue out like a child. Same behavior on The View....absolutely tiring watching her.


Irina   February 19th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

This is the first time I am watching Ann Coulter, but I think she performed great. On the other hand, Joy Behar was getting rediculous by answering her own questions and showing her irritation. Ann conducted herself very well. I do agree and share her opinion on the so called "stimulus" package. Excellent, Ann!.. And by the way she looks awesome


happyhappy   February 19th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

Joy was completely FAIR!!! It was a great interview on her part.
The only thing that would have been better was to have another guest on there instead of AC.


teresa   February 19th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

Joy Behar made a total ass of her self.


Patrick Ernst   February 19th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Larry – Enjoyed not watching your show. Did you ask that thing how it felt when one of the spouse's of the 911 victim was killed in the recent Contenental plane crash in Buffalo? That's right, "it" is not human so it would not feel anything. Larry, you have given air time to the likes of Hitler and the KKK. Shame on you. Never again will I watch your show. It's filth.


Maria   February 19th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

The right thing to do tonight on Larry King was to showcase the president's first visit to Canada. Instead, as a proud Canadian, who loves your president I turn on Larry King to find Dumb and Dumber. I promptly changed the chanel – UGH......


Ruth   February 19th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

The octuplet mom is whacked! Why should people feel sorry for her and offer her help with products or financially? She knowingly and selfishly put herself in this situation. She knew she couldn't afford or care for these kids alone. Her own mother thinks what she did was
irresponsible. One has to wonder , did she have these babies because kids make her feel needed or because she needs attention?
Officials take cats and dogs from people when they believe they have too many for the size home they have I can't believe they haven't rescued these children. She needs mental health care and the doctor should lose his license for assisting her in this pregnancy, knowing she didn't have a job and didn't have a spouse or partner with a job. I don't feel for her but I worry for the children.


Nancy Gloman   February 19th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

I don't understand why everyone pays so much attention to that hatemongerer Ann Coulter. Maybe if we ignore her, she will go away. I am a single mother and have been for 27 years. My daughter just completed her MBA and is a productive member of society. I certainly don't think we have undermined our society. Why doesn't she go after the men that leave the single women behind?


Khalifah M. Mohamed   February 19th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Peace Be upon You,
It is my opinion that there is a lots of hate being projected toward Nadya Suleman. The underlined factor is because she's a single mother and her name. A lady of mixed parentage and one being of arab decent. There have been a lots of advertisement for many years about fertility treatment for women, which was started and largely geared mainly for people of the caucasian race, and the expansion of the white race. Abortion and birth control was the means given to other members of the other races.
You glorify, the Duggars and Jon and Kate plus eight. You even had a tv show also, called Eight is Enough with a father raising eight children. There is daycare teachers, teachers, teachers aide taking care of children from different walks of life, in some cases handling 20 to 30 children in a classroom at a time. Because, they have the love for children and want to teach them, also get paid for the job that they do. What are you saying, they have an obsession or mental unstable to take care of children, too.
Like, Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton once stated, It takes a Village to raise children. Enough is Enough with the ranting and raving over the birth of these children and demeaning a woman, who's not an octopus, a human being who used the technology that's available to fulfill her desire to have another child. Now, she have 14, and won't be having any more. Children have come into this world in many differenty ways, some from incest and rape. Children is not responsible for the way they come into this world. You have humane love and concerns for the animals, like the dogs which some people worship and adore, and concern for their well being. For, the sake of the human race, show human love and humanity for the human race! For the sake of the children! Nadya Suleman is the mother of her children and she being a single mother, help her, in whatever way possible, as human beings to make sure she get the right support, she need as a mother, to raise her children with all the love she has to give. By, helping her with your help, they will grow up to become productive human beings in the society. Everything happens for a reason. This happened to bring about Change! To the Status of the availability, of the technological use of Fertility to women.
I pray to Allah that this message I'm sending will soften and warm, the coldness in your hearts of those who showed cause to do Nadya Suleman harm, and give you the peace and understanding that is needed at this time. Peace be Upon you.


Amanda   February 19th, 2009 11:08 pm ET

Hello Barb:

You are right, and actually, I agree with you. We both said the same thing. SIngle mothers who are widows or who are divorcees were EXCUDED from what Ann was talking about to Joy Behar. Ann merely stated that children have a "better chance" when they are born to married parents. Now, why is there an argument there?

To better explain, you have a "better chance" of surviving a car crash by wearing a seat belt. All studies prove that. What Ann was saying, was that children born to married parents have a "better chance" in life.....that has also been proven. When they are born to single mothers , they do not. Thank you for reading my comment. I see where you are coming from, and I agree with you!

I also agree with you that if we strive to be the best persons, our world would be a better place! If people took responsibility for their actions and their lives, our world truly would be a better place. Sadly Barb, many do not.

*My best friend was raised by a single mother who was also an alcoholic. My best friend raised herself and always wished that she had a father around. Because her mother was so hard working, she was never around, and she was raised by her aunt. Her father lived in a different state, so she didn't see him often. This situation should be avoided. I think that my best friend would have had a "better chance" if the parents were married, the father worked, and the mother was at home.


Canadian mom   February 19th, 2009 11:15 pm ET

I've always heard that there are people listen to Anne Coulter the way there are people who slow down to see a bad accident, or tune in to Jerry Springer.

I've heard Ann quoted before and thought it was all for the sake of notoriety, but what scares me is that she may actually be sincere, and that she is poisoning the minds of a great many 'simple' and not very well uneducated people with her bigotry and ignorance.

The United States has a larger population than us and this means there is may be more of many things: more good, more bad and also more extremes.

Obama represents all that is good with America.

Anne whose bigotry is as frightening as the taliban (and may be just as sane) represents all that is wrong. It was a sad 8 years to see rationale moderates caught between myopic extremists.

Her logic is not only bigoted but flawed. It is as if she reasoned that "many fish are blue and many socks are blue, therefore many fish are socks".

"Mein Kampf" may be appropriate because it sounded like Ann was a stones throw away from saying single mothers should be rounded up and put in gas chambers.

Keeping voting people. Keep voting in large numbers to represent your better angels. Congratulations on an amazing President. As one one elderly man said in the crowd that braved the cold to show support for Obama "here is a man who will put the world to right." Obama currently has a higher approval in Canada than any hockey player or politician ever did. Anne on the other hand makes our conservative and not so loved Conservative Prime Minister with a questionable track record suddenly look much more reasonable.


Katya   February 19th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

As was said above, ANN may be controversial, but her facts are generally true (ex., the statistics on the crime rate of children of single mothers, who are neither widows or divorcees) and her views, although sometimes unpopular, do have merit.

Ann is not daunted by the self-professing intellectuals who, from the sound of many blogs above, are scared to death of her ! You go girl !


KayBob   February 19th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

I like Joy, but she did a terrible job interviewing Annie. She was not prepared and could clearly not hold her own against Ann... not that it would take much. Neither of them contributed anything relevant to what's going on in the world today.... and there is plenty going on out here! WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME.


Teresa Champion   February 19th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

Please know that we thoroughly enjoy CNN, but please do not have Ann Coulter on again. We feel she is a complete waste of our time.

Thank you!


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

Pleaae stop being so devisive. You are absolutely amazing. I am a raised republican and an economist. Do you really sleep well at night with your arrogance beside you. Or do you actually stop to realize that believe or not you live in this country!! Like it or not we ALL fail or succeed together. Step or shut up. Becaue all i see you doing is bashing with no constructive answers.


E GLASSMAN   February 19th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

ANN COULTER IS SO FULL OF HERSELF. OOOH, WE MUST HAVE CAUSED THIS DISASTROUS RECESSION.....WE HAVE LIVED LONGER, MARRIED,RAISED CHILDREN, BUILT HOMES, VOLUNTEERED, WORKED, COOKED, CARED FOR OUR PARENTS....YOU NAME IT, WE HAVE LIVED IT... WHY CAN WE NOT TRY TO PROMOTE MINDS OPEN TO THE RIGHTS AND OPINIONS OF OTHERS. THANK YOU JOY BEHAR...YOU DID GREAT TRYING TO GET A WORD IN FOR MILLIONS OF US...


Dorien   February 19th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

Why is it so hard to swallow that it actually helps to have a husband that helps you to raise the kids. Men are extremely important role models and I would not want to raise my 3 teenage boys without my husband. Women: be very careful before you do it without a condom. Protect yourselves until you find a great father for your children.
Ann: you make sense.


Amanda   February 19th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Barb:

I also agree with you that we should not judge. That is why no one is judging anyone individually-we are looking at research which has merit. If we learn from the research, we will have a productive society! We just cannot afford the lifestyles of those who do not want to take responsibility for their children, and have them "out of wedlock" but "live together." Its a loophole that needs to be closed.

**** Also, I am sure that every single mother would say that they wished that they had had a better situation-it would have given them a better chance as well. I am sure that single mothers would all tell their children to get married FIRST and then have children of their own. That, I am sure, is what single mothers think is an "ideal situation."


KYS   February 19th, 2009 11:43 pm ET

Ann Coulter is the saddest excuse of a woman I have ever seen. Behar handled her very well. She allowed Coulter to speak a little too much, but this just paved the way for Coulter to dig herself into her ever-sinking hole of idiocy.

And, yes, people do hate her. I know many people who can't stand the sight or sound of her - and many more who care so little about someone so stupid that they don't think anything of her at all. She's nothing but a moronic hack.

Incidentally, I saw Coulter on The View and she was as rabid as ever. Barbara Walters did a fine job reading Coulter's hateful words.

Good luck on Judgment Day, Ms. Coulter – you're going to need it. Joy, great job.


KYS   February 19th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

P.S.

Dear Republicans,

Please learn how to spell.


Laurie   February 19th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Ohhhh WOW it was spoken that Ann C know her stats....I am so sorry to burst your bubble. Statisticians will all agree the numbers, so unfortunately, are only as good as the information provided. In large government, public , or even private environments the information provided comes from so many unregulated sources and various tracking measure it is all suspect to scrutiny of judgment. I am not saying they are not reliable approximations and validly drawn conclusions. However, that said anything can be stated and supported to claim anything. If you really want to make an informed comment and provide opinion, PLEASE I beg you read the studies and facts. Do not rely on sounds bites. You are clearly far more engaged than that and care about current events


Josie   February 19th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Our President stated in his election that men should take responsibility for their children, instead of leaving them having to be raised by their single mother and grandparents. *I wonder if our President would tell his daughters to be single mothers, since he was raised by a single mother. Lets take a survey and ask single mothers what they teach their children when it comes to raising children.... then we will see how they really feel about single parenthood.


mich   February 19th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

I thought you were supposed to be open-minded. This is not very PC. Everyone that is slamming a smart woman who can hold her own and speaks pretty logically and with FACTS should be given a chance. Joy wasn't holding her own. She was finding anything she could to be catty. Ladies out there, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Think, don't let your feelings control your decisions, let your mind work.


Patrick   February 19th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

Fact is Coulter brings most of these attacks and criticisms on herself. Don't think for a minute (ok probably a second) that she is hurt or offended by any of these harsh statements. She's not! She is only enjoying the fact that she is getting more attention. For every one person that can see she's full of hot gas, there's two that buy into her views and rhetoric, but, the truth is both types of people will continue to listen to her!

I still think the way to way to crawl under her skin is to look at her in a physically comparitive manner...She looks like Sen. John Kerry in drag!


KYS   February 20th, 2009 12:01 am ET

Children have a better chance when born to married parents? I'd say that would depend on the parents...


Rick Murrell   February 20th, 2009 12:07 am ET

either put those stupid fake eyelashes on correctly Ann Coulter or take them off completely. You look absolutely hideous. I can't believe anyone would ever go on national television looking like that. They look like they are ready to fall off. You are getting a good laugh though.


Candice   February 20th, 2009 12:11 am ET

I cannot believe how hostile the host, Joy, is being to her guest. And I can't stand Ann Coulter but Joy is ridiculously angry, nervous, and should not be hosting this show.


Pam   February 20th, 2009 12:14 am ET

Joy does NOT belong as a stand in for Larry King. She's in a complete different category. The show tonight has turned into a DEBATE and an arguement. Larry asks questions and Americans listen to the answers. He asks tough questions and doesn't argue. This is an insult to Larry King. Larry, please get SOMEbody else to fill in for you. Joy is a joke – she's NOT informed or prepared enough to even carry on a CIVIL conversation. She belittles and ridicules those who do not agree with her. I'm sick of her sitting in for Larry. This 'CHAIR' is not for 2 political parties to fight it out. Keep her on the view!
Very disappointed in this person as a fill in.
Most Sincerely,
Pam from Orgeon


roberta karsch   February 20th, 2009 12:15 am ET

OK, Joy Behar MUST replace Larry King when he retires. She has the insight and chutzpah to take on the likes of Ann Coulter, who would roll over Larry King on any given interview. Keep it up Joy!!


Michele   February 20th, 2009 12:16 am ET

What a waste of good air time to put Anne Coulter on the show. She and Rush Limbaugh are the face of the Republican party – and it's not a pretty face.

Sorry Larry – I love your show and it's fun when Joy takes over for you – but I'm tuning out tonight. I could care less what Anne Coulter has to say – she's ridiculous and offensive. She needs to move to Alaska and join her sister of the moon Palin.


Josh   February 20th, 2009 12:17 am ET

I completely agree with Ann saying that the media went crazy for Obama. When they say the barrier is broken, I don't think so if the barrier was truly broken we would be acting like it were just another President. I hardly ever heard anything about any other candidates before the conventions.


Rick Murrell   February 20th, 2009 12:17 am ET

you actually think you are some sexual goddess Ann Coulter but, you are actually a disgusting PIG. Put a bag over your head when you are on national television. Better yet, don't get on national television and ruin our viewing.


steelio   February 20th, 2009 12:17 am ET

Ann Coulter was so annoying tonight. The only reason I did not turn the channel was because I like Joy so much!


Stephanie Hrabe   February 20th, 2009 12:18 am ET

Joy is being the usual head game player, trying to antagonize Ann at ever turn. Why does she think that makes good interviews? Her angry attitude only validates Ann's opinions that left wing liberals are angry. Putting words in her mouth, cutting her off, and twisting things that she says. Jabs about people not liking Ann – Joy seems very immature. Ann makes very good sense, but you have to be a real "thinker" to understand, not shallow like Joy.


Avery Ray Colter   February 20th, 2009 12:18 am ET

Ann Coulter (no relation I assure you) says she believes in complete freedom to say anything. I would like to know if she has ever had an on-air debate with a REAL leftist – not Chris Matthews or Sean Colmes or the pundits mainstream media often pass off as "liberal", but people like George Galloway, Michael Parenti (a REAL socialist), Larry Everest (a REAL communist), or even outspoken journalists who have deep criticisms of both Democratic and Republican rule like Robert Fisk or Greg Palast or Alan Nairn? I know these names by heart as a Pacifica Radio listener. I suspect many CNN watchers have never had the pleasure of hearing these voices. Is Larry or Joy up to this?

In transition to the other story of the day, for someone who believes in a woman's right to choose, the story of Nadya Suleman is an interesting case. I do believe this was her choice, as dangerous as it may be in some ways, but it is also in the interest of society to verify that she is capable and willful of doing that which is most beneficial for these children. She has chosen a very "pro-life" stance from her words. It seems to me then that those who advocate this idea would do well to consider what they can do to help with her case. Ultimately though, with all that is happening in the world, all the money which is being talked about in the roiling economy and the agendas our nation is pursuing, how much in the grand scheme of things is the money it will take to raise these children? I wish her well, but in the world I would wish, health care would be universal.

Also, I have heard one thing, which may bring some light to cases like this. I have heard that the Native Americans, to ensure their hunting of buffalo was sustainable, memorized which members of the herd were "superbreeders". It seems to be the case with mammals that there are always a few rare ones who have children much more easily and often than average, who perhaps have more drive than average to do so. One stray cat in my backyard bore one litter, kept running away from me, then had another litter only three months later before I was able to capture her for spaying. Even for a cat her ability to breed was extraordinary! So perhaps we should all take a deep breath, embrace our superbreeders, and just be thankful that they are a rare breed themselves!


Matt   February 20th, 2009 12:20 am ET

I can't believe anyone can listen to Ann Coulter for more than 30 seconds let alone not hate her. What a bunch of nonsense. She makes me want to quit watching CNN.


Ilaha   February 20th, 2009 12:21 am ET

Oh, my God,.... Joy doesn't let her to talk... it is sooo disturbing, she is asking question and doesn't let her to answer.... Joy, she is talking non stop, both talking at the same time, I can't understand anything....please, Larry King, come back... you rock !!!


Ron   February 20th, 2009 12:22 am ET

Love the Larry King show but have to question the judgement of putting Joy on as host.
Joy has GOT to go. This isn't an interview – it's a cat fight. Joy is out of her league – this isn't a stand up show – she is not funny – I will not watch again if she comes back. Pul-EEZE!


Mike (Toronto)   February 20th, 2009 12:22 am ET

Earlier on in my exposure to Ann Coulter on Bill Maher's shows I found her very astute and an woman who has drive and an opinion, yet taking at face value that she knows more than me as she was on the show more than once (and I have never been). yet I now realize that she is an evil right wing propaganda tool like Rush and Mr. No Spin Zone. These people are like horses with blinders, no even worse, they are incapable of objective observation and thought spewing right wing propaganda at nauseum. I now have no respect for Ms. Coulter..............


Keith Allen   February 20th, 2009 12:22 am ET

I am a proud Republican, fiscal Conservative, who will go on the record to say that I HATE Ann Coulter, and everything she stands for. She is an ill-mannered elitist jerk whose position is destructive to an American recovery. In fact, I consider her an American Terrorist! Her fake persona is simply a devise similar to the shock jock attraction of Howard Stern. The difference? Howard is real, she is the kind of person who smiles when mad as if to show people that she does not care. NEWS FLASH ANN – we all know, and can very easily see how steamed you get when people call you out. Why do they call you out? Because you are generally wrong, and have no purpose other than to profit from the sales of your books promoted on fear and extremism. If you care about this country, back off and give this new administration a chance, a real chance.


stephanie   February 20th, 2009 12:23 am ET

For Shame, wonder why larry king viewers would tune into watch a Republican , why did they not change the channel and come back later. You enjoy Ann Coulter getting your heart raciing?


lisa   February 20th, 2009 12:24 am ET

It is very obvious how ignorant Joy is about politics, she is such as ass. Joys comment to Ann, oh and you want to torture people, obviously Joy hasn't lost a loved one because of a terrorist attack, nor does she have compassion for people who did. She'll continue to be an ass about terrorists and torture until one of her loved ones is murdered. And much to Joy's disappointment, Ann has millions of people to share and admire her political opionions and her intellegence. And no Joy, Ann didn't leave the View w/ an attitude because "you were so hard on her"; I would think if she left w/ any sort of expression it would have been one of bewilderment about just how stupid you really are.


Tracy   February 20th, 2009 12:24 am ET

Ann Coulter is an idiot! She guaranteed Republican women have more orgasms...she is so uptight she has probably never had one. Who in the hell is buying her book?


Lisa Kenney   February 20th, 2009 12:25 am ET

I have always loved Joy, but she won my undying admiration and respect by managing to get through this nightmare interview without losing her mind. I have not been able to watch Coulter for more than five minutes or so on any television appearance she does. I thought I just thought she was a shrill, spiteful, horrible person, but I now think she has something seriously wrong with her. She needs to be medicated. Wow. I think the cable news outlets need to take a hard look at themselves. I feel like I'm watching some kind of bizarro version of The Jerry Springer Show.


Dale Carrigan   February 20th, 2009 12:25 am ET

Has anyone ever asked Ann if she is actually trying to look like a transvestite, or does she just look like that naturally? LOL


Susan   February 20th, 2009 12:25 am ET

Ann Coulter is a hate monger who disgusts me. I am disappointed that Larry King Live would give this disgusting human being more face time than she has already had. You have to get down in the sewer to be on par with her. She spews nothing but vicious lies, does your show need ratings that badly! I love Joy and give her credit for interviewing her tonight, she is a better person than I could be. I just tuned in for a second, but I refuse to watch Ann Coulter when she is on any show. Her statements are hateful and racist and her so called truths have been proven to be lies, how could you have her on your show!!!!!!! I know why Fox loves her, but I had more respect for CNN and thought that CNN respected their viewers too, but I was wrong. TV has sunk pretty low when they showcase a low life sewer dweller like Ann Coulter. CNN needs to apologize to their loyal viewers for exposing them to such trash!!!!!!!!!!!!


joel from toronto,canada   February 20th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I cannot believe that Ann Coulter will be on your show and allow her to share her right wing agenda. No wonder USA is such a mess right now because you let people like republicans run your country and entertain people like her. She is arrogant and ignorant at the same time, she is uttering her mouth like a snake with poison on its teeth. I am watching your show right now and i am very disgusted.I hope all the intelligent people in america will come up to her.


Twinkadink   February 20th, 2009 12:26 am ET

Joy Behar and Ann Coulter are both obnoxious idiots. Can you not find a better more informed host.? I resent listening to this nonsense.


Mimi   February 20th, 2009 12:26 am ET

JOY BEHAR THINKS SHE IS SMART, JOY IS THE SADDEST EXCUSE FOR A WOMAN.

Please Joy Behar, Shut Up and go back to the view and shoot your big Stupid mouth off. Go back and watch the interview and see how stupid you are and how rediculous you are. You must have money because there is no way an old battle axe like you could be on tv without money. You cant even argue with any facts because you dont know anything other then you want to sleep with Obama. Of course single moms cant raise kids like two parents, dah Joy wake up. Listen to yourself please in that interview , maybe you will see how stupid and see through you are. How could you have a name like Joy when your such a sadist. Maybe change your name to dumb ass


Rick Murrell   February 20th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I really liked your comment Michele and, I agree that Anne Coulter must indeed be related to Sarah Palin and both should move to Russia where Sarah can see supposedly from where she lives. If you care to believe either one of them. What a JOKE


Laura   February 20th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I am watching Joy Behar interview Anne Coulter while Anne Coulter tells us that everyone loves her because she is a "best-selling author," and I want to get the duct tape for her mouth. Please do not give this Arian-looking, anorexic any more air time. She is the most abrasive, arrogant woman who could use a long sojourn on a desert island with a buff Jamaican as her only “companion.”


jan tompkins   February 20th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Ann Coulter....fabulous job tonight!
You made mince meat out of Behar!


Robert, Phoenix AZ   February 20th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Anne Colter is one reason so many Independents voted Democrat.....


Shannon   February 20th, 2009 12:28 am ET

I watched the View when Barbra Walters read from Ann's book. ( Mind you this book has the same substance as the others, just a different picture on the cover). Barbra read the book in the tone that it was written, hateful and offenseive. Next time, if Ann wants her writing to be presented better she should write in iambic pentameter.


Ali   February 20th, 2009 12:28 am ET

This chick is so superficial! Ann C predominately answers a question with a question and does not take responsibility for what she says or writes. Her callous response is that she is selling books. She is merely selling tabloid garbage – sandwiched between pieces of parchment.

Unbelievable...


Brian   February 20th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Ann is a saleswoman. No one with half a brain could actually unconditionally believe the crap that comes out of her mouth. She's great at getting attention for her new book. If you take her for a bad comedian then her words really don't mean anything. Which is exactly what her words should mean.


David O'Malley   February 20th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Ann Coulter was awesome tonight! I was clapping and cheering her on at least once a minute. How can logic, common sense and sound values not dominate the mental illness of American brand liberalism? Especially with this useless woman from The View. I love it!


Caitlin Wright   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

An American in Canada responding in horror. I am currently sitting in a room with Canadians, English, French, Italians, and Spanish friends watching this program and unable to take of eyes off, almost like watching a train wreck.

Undoubtedly everyone is entitled to opinions, but quasy factual rantings from an obviously aloof woman does very little to help the whole. We are a country of mixed beliefs and the only way we are going to get through what the REPUBLICANS


Nikki   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Regarding Ann Coulter she is very loud and inappropriate person? This women is sick why do we have to have interview with people like her? She needs to apologize for what she said about people voting for Obama to have sex with him. How sick can some one be!!!


Trish Hendricks   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

ANN COULTER ROCKS! SHE IS AN ARTICULATE AND INTELLIGENT WOMAN WHO IS KICKING JOY BEHAR'S BUTT ON THIS SHOW! GO ANN! JOY BEHAR IS THE MOST OBNOXIOUS AND ANNOYING WOMAN ON THE PLANET!!


Shelly Gaudry   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

I just wish I could be as quick on my feet as Ms. Coulter! She is one sharp cookie!!


Marilyn   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

I absolutely agree with Ann. Finally there is someone out there that's saying what most of America is thinking but just doesn't say. Way to go Ann, you prove the point that common sense isn't so common with the people who drank the Kool Ade!


Zachary Payne   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Ann, you just said that you don't think people hate you. Well, believe me, they really do. I do as well. I live in Indiana, formerly a red state, and I know no one that doesn't hate you. Book sales being up doesn't mean people don't hate you. I hate Hitler but I've bought Mein Kompf.

You are hated. Believe it.


diddy   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

am i the only one who noticed that she's wearing exactly the same outfit as she did on the view? do all attention-hoarding talking heads have uniforms?


Phil Belanger   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Just in case you still believe that no one hates you. I hate you! so that is at least one.


Robert Fischer   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Ann Coulter is great. You should have more guests like her. She tells it like it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Paula   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Go Ann!


George F   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Ann Coulter is full of B.S. She said all the people that listen to Rush share his ideals, well I hate to inform her that my friends and I listen to him to li to see what kind of crap will come out of his mouth, for instance one night we were listening and Rush blamed this financial crisis on Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. I told my buddies that Rush must be back on drugs.


john from georgia   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Can you please stop smiling and posing for the camera as if the whole world cares what you think. If your gonna reference to Rush Limbaugh's 20 million listeners, then please add the fact that his audience is single males over 50. Boring!!!


Rebecca   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Common Ann, this is not a perfect world. Everyone is prone to making mistakes...Wait till you have your child and let someone tell you to give him/her up for adoption. Bristol was 17, she made a mistake and so what....


Susan   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Even though Anne usually takes issues over the top, she is also usually right on......Liberals are so far off the left deep end that they just can't possibly understand her views. I personally love to listen to her and especially love to listen to her whip the left!!!!!!! Go Anne!!!


Dorothy   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Joy Behar – what a joke. A host on Larry King? Sad. Stop talking over your guests! She's in the chair – she should DO HER JOB. Leave your politics at the view. Don't insult – isn't that what the Democrats are trying to let away from? Just talk for crying out loud. She's also terrible with a prompter. She is poorly prepared.


Douglas   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

I love Ann! 35 single Police Officer . She is the women of my dreams! Not only gorgeous, but more intelligent then the red headed wind bag interviewing her!

Love you Ann!

Douglas (Simi Valley) CA


Andy Alex   February 20th, 2009 12:29 am ET

What a wasted hour. People are going to be tired of her vitriolic puke.


Sara   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Ann, FYI – people do hate you. You're a very cold, insensitive person, and you're way too cocky (not confident – there's a fine line and you're WAY over it).

Also, what is going on CNN? She looks absolutely terrifying in that picture! Couldn't you pick a better one? She isn't a bad looking woman, but man...but that picture is exceptionally awful.


Daphne   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

I'm amazed. I actually find that I like Ann. I agree with alot of what she is saying. I might add, it's nice when Larry interviews someone, he doesn't ever show it if he has animosity toward the person he is interviewing, unlike Joy. Boy, Joy really is taking this personal. Ann is eating it up too.


Karen   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Ann is right on. Love her. Keep speaking out, Ann, because we need more of folks like you. Thanks for the straight talk.


Adam   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

I am sorry for all of you guys that hate her. Do you not see that she is right? I love Ann Coulter, always will, and I hope she gets more publicity and sells more books.


Justin   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Anne is crazy! She just shrugged off the deficit question as if it was chop liver!

Its ok for the republicans to drive that up but not the dems? Its actually not ok for any of them..and not every president for 30 years drove that up, i believe the Great Bill Clinton was able to slow the growth of the deficit and provide us with surplus!

o btw...i belive i do hate her! she said no one did but i am one of them!


Twinkadink   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Joy is a terrible host!


james elliott   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Although I am watching the midnight showing, I still cringe at the sight of ann coulter. How she has risen to the stature that she has, is beyond me. as far as I am concerned, I don't think she really knows which end she is wiping when she goes to the bathroom! Her comments are a waste of time and thought.


lisa   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Ann Coulter has to be the rudest person I have ever seen! She wouldn't let Joy get a word in edge wise. She makes her living on trying to prove she is right. She should just nail herself to the cross and name a holiday after herself ! Instead of finding other faults she should look in the mirror! She has no class!


Ilaha   February 20th, 2009 12:30 am ET

ohh. myyyyyyy Gooood.... Joy, you r killing me....please, you talk look like street fight.....youuuuu....don't...let...people....to....talk..... !!! Let them answer to your questionssss..... !!!!!


Melanie Oseland   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Ann Coulter is brilliant and classy. Joy Behar is just the opposite.


vance newman   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Ann is a very smart person, but why do you waste your time with her. I myself am very oppinionated. Ann's Bio-chemical make-up cannot allow her to be normal.. She is at the extreme end of the scale and is kinda sick! Maybe there is a pill that can help her along. It's not her fault!


Linda   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Joy, you are so combative here and on the view. When guests don't agree with your views, you drag out the venom and it gets tiresome. Try having a normal conversation and be respectful with your guests, you can still ask the same questions without being so sharp. If you take over Larry's show when he retires, learn some civility... that shtick of yours gets to be too darn theatrical... you are not on a stage in a club... this is a news organization!


russell johnson   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Thank God that millions of conservative Americans have a capable voice of reason in Ann Coulter. On several occasions, within minutes, she shined light on sloppy journalism and exposes liberal media bias. Stay the course and keep the faith.


Ronald   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Coulter only offends leftwingers because she is telling it like it is. Everyone can see what happens to the families of unwed mothers, and everyone can see that the left is always clamoring for "victim" status, because government forces the taxpayers to reward "victims."


Lisa Bolin   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

An unfair intellectual match between Ann and Joy. Ann has Joy beat all day long. By the way, we can tell how much CNN likes Ann by the picture of Ann that is posted on this blog.


Steven   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

geez "the view" lady was terrible, i expect much better from cnn. She obviously didn't like coulter and they did not have one intelligent discussion....just terrible....and i like it when ann goes after democrats, but she needs to concede that the Republicans have royally screwed this country for the past 8 years....


Doc Murdock   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Ann irritates many liberals because she is not politically correct in her delivery, and because she is absolutely correct in her description and analysis of current issues.

I'm glad you have decided to take a holiday from the Obama video fan club for a few minutes.

Kudos,

DM


RockyRacoon   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Joy Beyer, God Bless her is not a political analist, university professor, or even a journalist. She is a personality like Ann Coulter-who has much ideology with no substantive content to her arguements. Let a journalist the caliber of a Mr. Bill Moyers read her book and interview her. All we are getting here is entertainment and rather base entertainment at that.
Sincerely,
RR


Mom of 5   February 20th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Joy Behar is ignorant, obnoxious and obviously BITTER. I can't believe she sat there NOT to interview Ms. Coulter but to try to prove SHE'S RIGHT and that she's better than Ann. Shame on CNN and Larry King for allowing this VERY BIASED to host. Oh, what did I expect this is CNN! Either way it was very entertaining to watch Joy Behar be eaten alive by a VERY SMART Ann Coulter


JOHN C   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Ann Coulter is a big enough headache WITHOUT Joy Behar. Tonights show was nothing but a menopause meltdown that went from a headache to MIGRANE.
Joy; learn to shut up sometimes!!!


Tony   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

So ironic how republicans sidestep responsibility, and very quickly place blame for their mistakes on someone else. Wow! Ann Coulter will never get a dollar from me, all that nonsense followed by a shameless plug for her book, please stop giving this cow exposure so she can just fade away somewhere.


David   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Please give more advance notice when Joy Behar is to do your show. She is a rude interviewer and I want to make sure I'm out the next time.


katie   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Ann Coulter is beyond a disappointment. The fact that someone can be such a vocal hate monger in this day and age is exactly why we face so many problems as a nation. This should be a time to unite as one country, indivisable, and seeking justice for all. Instead, we have venemous snakes like Ann Coulter glorifying hatred and ignorance. She truly is an embarassment to women and it is people like her who set women back in the workplace and in society as a whole. Ann should stay on Fox News where she belongs. Then she wouldn't be able to pollute my living room with such garbage.


d. willson   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

CNN ... stop the lying, most of the blog's are telling you as I am that Ann is on point and right. You just said only some agree with Ann. She is right on!!
She speaks the truth, too many people are on the government dole... PLEASE


Rebecca   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Ann is the Best! Way to not take Joy's bait! Finally a woman to speak up for REAL women not liberal extremest feminists like Joy


Wendell (Coulumbia, SC)   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

LOL....I love Joy and CNN, but they had to have known how this show was going to play out. I knew when I watched The View this morning where Joy announced that she was going to be hosting. We all know that Ann is a loon and that Joy isn't too fond of her!!


Tiffany   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Can we please get rid of Joy (or whatever the interviewer's name is)? I thought this was an interview with Ann Coulter not some opportunity for Joy to talk all over everything Ann has to say. What a botched interview. There was nothing new asked here and the fact that the "harpies" question was asked again is just a waste of air time. I mean, seriously, didn't Joy already get the answer to that question during Ann's most recent visit on The View? Please don't allow anyone but Larry to interview Ann - at least he'll let her finish a sentence.


Robyn Turner   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

I'm a single mom with two grown kids. One is an ER M.D. and the other is a Doctor of Jurisprudence, a.k.a Attorney at Law.

I would like to read her book only because I'm a fiscal conservative.

The problems we are faced with today were created by social engineering per Democratic party combined with monetary greed per Republican party. Both are guilty. Also, I agree with Coulter's premise that knee jerk liberals who vote from their guilt are a large part of the problem today.

My son is also a blues musician with a new CD. One of the songs he wrote is entitled "Free Government Money." I think Ann would love it.

Kandice Herring   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

I love Ann! Luckily I was flipping through the channels and came across the Clinton News Network too see her! I only wish more people would speak the truth as she does!!!


Gail Richardson   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Wow Ann! Just happen to stumble across CNN tonight and saw you and tuned in. You were awesome and someone finally shut the "mouth" up! She doesn't even compare in your class, way to go Ann. I could have listened to you for hours and hours! But not the Mouth, no way no how! Do you think I would have tuned it if it were her interviewing anyone else? Well Duh!!!


Rob Andrews   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

there is people who paint in broad strokes then there is Ann Coulter throwing cans of paint at the paper. I would classify her comments as trolling if it wasn't on television. She has no idea what shes talking about and simply twists numbers and issues to make sure her ego isn't crushed when she is clearly wrong. Ann is wrong about nearly everything in the broadcast i win Ann! grow up

Diamond   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Ms./Mr. Ann Coulter Are you a woman? Cause when we look at your neck it it says different. HAHAHAHA


Steve   February 20th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Joy very unprofessional interview. Keep your liberal agenda in your purse and be objective. I really don't care for your confrontational and lack of intellect. Ann took your hits , even though you as host controled the interview and put her at a dis-advanatge. Watching you now your entire demeanor has changed with a liberal like Gloria.. Very sad and poor for the producer of Larry King Live to allow you to act this way. I suspect you took an early commercial break and you where told to tone it down.


Ann DeMaille   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

Joy, I wish you were even tougher on Ann C. You could have done it. My blood pressure was rising just listening to her incessant talking & laughing after every sentence. Ann C is becoming obnoxious & I used to try to 'hear' her point of view but that is over.

Also, Ann C. regarding unwed moms & adoption...YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT EITHER ISSUE. SHAME ON YOU.


talgus   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

Thanks Ann for getting out the child of unwed mother prision population. Self-energizing, the dems created the criminals to drive the crime that allows them to exert the control they so desire.
Joy.... you lose


Edith   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

Joy makes a very poor hostess. Rude, asks a question, yells at the guest, interrupts constantly. She did not even let Ann talk. I did not know either of these women before, and want to know even less now. What a train wreck! A Host or Hostess makes or breaks the program. this one is broken.


JuneRoyter   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

I feel very sorry for AnnCoulter, She obviously had amiserable, loveless childhood. And her comments re orgasms is laughable. She most likely has never had one of those either.


beth   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

This THING a.k.a. Ann has got to be one of the most pathetic creatures to walk on two legs. She's obviously VERY insecure in who she is considering that she is ALWAYS on the defensive as if people who seemingly are only questioning her are intentionally trying to insult her, as SHE does. I think she is truly a disgrace to the human race AND the republican party. I'm truly embarrassed and sickened to my stomach!!!


Denise Adkins   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

I think Ann Coulter is great. She uses facts to back up her arguments. Joy wants to see this society as a utopia of a world, and that just doesn't exist. Sometimes the truth hurts. Everything is not always sweet and sugar coated. This world is going to hell and I wish we had more Ann Coulters out there the world would be a better place. The biggest problem in the world is all the liberals never wanting to except responsibility for their actions. Blaming everyone around them for their problems. Its time for everyone to except responsibility for themselves.


Over Joy   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

One question why is Joy always so defensive and angry? Do yourself a favor Larry find a new replacement


Mark   February 20th, 2009 12:33 am ET

I think the conversation can be summed up with Joy's comment:

"We could look at the 80% of prisoners with single mothers from an angle that completely ignores that statistic. Why don't you look at it from that angle?"

Because that is called ignoring reality and cherry picking data. Wow!


Jackie   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Joy Behar is a terrible host. Some of her sexual questions were completely out of place. She seems very angry. Ann Coulter is harsh as well, but at least she is smart and educated.


Robyn B-Atlanta Ga   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Ann Coulter is delusional and subscribes to the same ideology as most republicans. She believes that the average American will believe whatever they say without the benefit of fact, if they speak loudly enough, and without real answers or responsibility. The last election proves this is not true, yet they still don't get the point. They are clueless, so is she and Rush. Ironically, I'd like her to continue to speak just as loudly and ignorantly as she pleases. It only helps make democrats more appealing!

Love you Joy! Thanks for exposing her (ANN) as a fraud and an opportunist.


Mike (Toronto)   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

O yeah,

Another thing, I believe the octuplets should be removed from their mothers home for cruel and inhumane treatment of a child (sic). It is unfatheonable that a woman living on pogey with her mother can mother octuplets, but more incredulous is the doctor who helped her. He must have a brain like the doctor allowed his 8 year old son fire a micro uzi in Mass. respectfully, another tragic incident.


jim   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

joy behar--– why? this woman needs to shut up and listen and maybe we can learn a little more about ann coultons views. this woman has no idea whats she talking about. larry, larry , larry bad pick. she needs to stay on the view which i would never watch and play with whoopies hair.


Sabrina   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

She's incredibly defensive and combative. Could she insult anyone else? The 911 widows for heaven's sake? Disgusting. She has no humanity. I hope that the rest of the world doens't think she represents mainstream citizens.


Josh   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

I am 16 and when I heard blame once again passed to George W. Bush and the Republicans I wasn't surprised. I think that most people should really know how our system of government works. The fundamentals of our government use checks and balances. Presidents can't do anything on their own without consent from Congress. Another thing, the government shouldn't interfere with the FREE MARKET CAPITALIST economic system.


james elliott   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Joy, you are a saint in my book. I love you on the View and more-so on Larry King. You stood up to ann c, and I just wish that you would have been allowed to throw her down on the floor, and stepped on her illerate head. It would have done her some good!


linda   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Joy
Great job interviewing the DEVIL!!!!


Sheri   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

I love Ann! Get rid of Joy & please put Ann in her place! I'm sick of hearing all of the media's bias left-wing opinions! We need more "ann's" on tv & less of "the view's" type of reporting! Give her a hug for me! Sheri Colorado


California young republican   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

I LOVE ANN COULTER. i am a young republican woman and she could not be more correct in saying that the "single mother" is SO DIFFERENT from the "divorced or widowed mother"...let's not praise this...let's help these women, but not encourage this. the family structure should not be scourned, rather it should be respected...it creates happy children, and ultimately, happier adults....
GO ANN!!!!!


heather   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Ann Coulter offends me with every bone in my body. I could not disagree with her more. I live in the 'bible belt' of America, and people like her are an embarassment to me and everyone I know. I am an unmarried pregnant lady and for her to say I should marry the father or give the child up for adoption is unbelievable to me. Her opinions are disgusting and full of ignorant hate.


melissa   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Ann – what a disapointment of an amercian. What has she done for her country....besides sell books and insult people?


Caroline   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Ann Coulter is an opportunist and cares for nothing more than her own wealth. She is much more concerned about selling her books, making money and feeding her own incredible ego, than the welfare of this country. She is not a patriot. She makes money off of trying to divide this nation. When will you news people stop interviewing her??? Hurry, we have had enough!!! Interview people who really try to make a positive difference. We are sick of hearing her complain and blame.


David Kimberly   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Ann Coulter is taking the advantage of free speech to offend people. Without respect a homosapien does not become human. So, she is not human.


Misha   February 20th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Anna keep doing what you do, people just have to realize that sometimes the truth hurts.

Also, I think that the only help the octuplet mom should get is from the state, when they take them from her. That is the best thing for the kids, and kick her out on the street for being so stupid. Help for the kids, not for her!!!


texas   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

Ann C states single mothers are fall of this country – what a joke! She is the biggest fake! The fact a mother should give up her child – SICK! THere are plenty of married couples out there that are not raising their children! Take a look around Ann in your fake neighborhood – who is raising those kids? Big allowances, kids walking with credit cards and driving BMW's at 17? Ahhh-who raises them nanny's or their parents throw everything at them monetary to make up for the lack of emotional support and nurturing!
That is the problem with today's society! People like you Ann are in denial – in denial in your own shame.


Kay   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

Wow...if only the world were so simplistic that we could blame one party or another for woes affecting the globalized world, and most of the crime on un-wed mothers! Ann's views seem like Republican Kindergarten! Why doesn't she do something more constructive with her noteriety other than play ludicrous blame games that most educated people do not buy into anyway? What a disgusting joke...


Ronald   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

Why is Joy afraid to allow Ann to answer a question? Joy, stop with being so cowardly! Allow your opponents to speak, unless you know you are wrong. Could that be what makes you so afraid? Are you afraid your leftwing ideology is a total failure? Is that why you talk over your opponents?


JERRY FORD   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

HELLO LARRY I WATCH YOUR SHOW VERY FREQUENTLY, AND ANN VIEWS ARE VERY EXTREME, AND I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT ANY NORAML PERSON WOULD AGREE WITH HER VIEWS


Frank W   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

She says what's on her mind and isn't afraid to piss off a few people. I love her!!!


Perceptive   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

When Ann Coulter speaks she reminders me of the books i read on the Apartheid movement in South Africa, Hilter in Germany and the Slaves master in America. I think she is what's wrong with the world. And with people like her living on earth i know i am in hell.


Doris   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

This is my first time seeing Ann Coulture in action and she reminds me of a corny screw-ball comedian. Her entire demure "act" is premised on outlandish foolishness. But I guess some people will go to great lengths, even making a down right farse of themselves, just to make easy ill-gotten money. Not my cup of tea.


Caitlin Wright   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

Ann Coulter is an extremely angry woman. Does anybody else notice this? No one would act, say, or behave with the disdain she does towards fellow human beings if there wasn't something seriously wrong.


Haley   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

An embarrassment to every educated successful woman, globally. Why in the world does the media even give her the time of day let alone her continued 15 minutes of fame. A woman with the personality of lint...... thank goodness we live in America where we can freely change the channel.

I wonder if she really believes she is a role model to anything other than a cockaroach. Please Larry keep her off your show or I among many other Americans will be forced to stop watching your show for fear she will appear.


Linda   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

I am 40 yrs old. Back when my mom was a single parent ( not by choice) it was not "cool" like it is now. My mother worked very hard to give me what she could and I never went without.

But, I want to say bravo Ann. Finally, someone who says it like it is. Having a child as a single parent ( by choice) is reckless, self indulgent, and irresponsible. It is in the best interest of any child to be raised by two loving caring parents. Biological or not. I am so sick of this politically correct crap! Let's start thinking for ourselves and not being afraid to express OUR opinions. Stop being lemmings America! Bravo Ann.. continue to show them the way!

When the government silences Ann Colter... we will all need to watch our backs. Because we'll be next.

And Joy.. please show more respect to your guest. Some of us are actually interested in what they have to say.


Naomi   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

I have no Idea why anyone gets bothered by Ann Coulter. Unless she's making an obnoxious statement no one knows or cares who she is. I think that people give her way too much attention when she makes these comments and then get upset over them. She is entitled to her thoughts and opinions no matter if we agree or not. Stop giving ignorant people the opportunity to get under our skin and they will go away.


Tavi   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

Ann-

If you had received just half of the love and support that my "single mom" gave me, you may not be such the carping hypocrite and attention hog that you are today.

Writing a mediocre book and having fake blonde hair does not mean that you have the right to blame hardworking women for your lack of intelligence.

Get over yourself.


Ihsan   February 20th, 2009 12:35 am ET

I find it amazing that some one with a horrible and cocky personality like Anne Coulture gets respect or attention from any one. But again this is America and the more evil a person is the more we are entertained. After all we did take Bush seriously (for about 6 months).


JOHN AND JACKIE   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

We love Joy!!!!! Keep her.


Mike   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

I really enjoyed seeing Ann Coulter on Larry King. It is great to hear an intelligent woman on such a liberal show. Obviously, Joy Behar was no match. She should stick to the fluff stuff and not pretend to have a brain. Also, CNN please retire Larry King He is too old too stupid and and too liberal. With all the problems we are going through please save value network time for something of greater educational merit. Maybe you could just play Fox network rerruns! But, thanks for having the courage to have Ann on your show!


angela   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

First of all, thanks Ann! You are so intelligent and you didn't take any crap off Joy. Joy proved herself to be a complete idiot. Bringing up the Jersey girls...hello? That was like yesterday and has been completely hashed to death. Learn some interviewing skills, Joy. Where did you get your questions? From nancy Pelosi? Can you pretend to be objective and ask a question in a professional manner? By the way, what's with the symmetrical strands of highlighted hair pulled out to each side of your face? I could barely look at you without envisioning you as a catfish.

There is a reason that more people listen to people like Ann and Rush – they agree with them. There is a reason liberals want the Fairness doctrine...to make the majority listen to the liberal point of view! If we agreed with you, we would tune in to your newspapers, radio shows, and tv programs. You can't MAKE us watch you!

I guess that's it for now. Ann, you are awesome.


Jim from Wisconsin   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Good Job Ann. Fact do mess with Left. Hang in there.


Petty Officer 2nd Class Tallman   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Joy.......wow! just wow! That is some unbelievable TV. And you guys got me to come and see your website!

I am disgusted with CNN, placing somebody like Joy on CNN speaking in the way that is completely outrageous.

God i hope that people see how rediclus joy and CNN is after that interview.

I will to my best never to watch CNN again. Unbelievably bias. The USA is stimulated by what they watch on tv and having somebody like Joy who has no idea what she was talking about is classic. Good job CNN. You are ruining this counrty one show at a time.

"ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY"


Chris   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Ann Coulter makes me sick. I wish CNN wouldn't give her air time. She & Rush are similar, in that they both just blab, are full of themselves, and aren't thoughtful. Poisonous–that's how I would describe them.


RockyRacoon   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

everyone is picking on this women who was only a part of having these children. Where is the press when it comes to the Fertility Clinic and the Doctor's who "fathered" these children come under scrutiny. They were the enablers without whom, this woman would not been able to have these children. Where is their culpability in all of this and why is the press not holding them accountable for their actions.
RR


dp   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Wow...what a joke! What is this so-called "comedienne" doing on this show????? She did not "interview" ANN COULTER...she attacked her. When she would ask Ann a question, she wouldn't even listen when she answered, then would say "Answer the question!" Oh my gosh! What a waste of Ann's time...it was like a person with an IQ of 180 (Ann, for sure!) talking to a kindergartener (Joy).
Rarely watch this show...but will make sure to NEVER watch when this woman is pretending to interview people!


ele   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Wow,, What a waste of time, to have to listen to the big loud mouth Joy,its bad enough shes on the view,she really doesnt know what shes talking about,and Larry Please dont have her on anymore.
As far as Ann goes, shes great,you may not agree with everything she says,but at least she honest. and she does know what shes talking about. """ Joy go Home"" and please be quite.
Sorry just the way I feel and I know lots of other people feel the same way and hey even stopped watching the view because ogf """"JOY"""


Carla S   February 20th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Hey!! I'm Jamaican and I can tell you that no Jamaican man will ever want her. Don't insult us please.


Meg Bakich   February 20th, 2009 12:37 am ET

I am disgusted and disappointed Larry King would have someone as ignorant as Joy Behar fill in for him. She is clearly not well read enough to be able to handle an intelligent conversation and resorted to being crass. Ann showed class in dealing with a person of intelligence way below her own. Larry King may not agree with Ann Coulter but he would have shown her and his audience respect by carrying on a true debate and conversation. Joy simply tried at every turn to begin a catfight but was immediately declawed with Ann's intelligent and factual answers. Please do not ever have Joy Behar do this show again.


paul   February 20th, 2009 12:37 am ET

Mr. King and the Powers That Be At CNN:

I am asking you, as sincerely and from the deepest parts of my heart to please, PLEASE never EVER invite such an atrocious guest as Ann Coulter to appear on Larry King Live or ANY other program that is broadcast on your network. It has nothing to do with policitcs, it has nothing to do with the state of the world. She is, quite simply, one of the most ignorant and hateful actors I have ever seen. She may be able to recite names from history and any given statistic at the drop of a hat, but I assure you that this does not constitute intelligence. I use the word "actor" in the most literal sense of the word. Her act in both transparent and desperate. She prides herself on invoking shock and disgust in the viewer/reader. Truthfully, the only thing she invokes is a calling forth of bile in any decent human being within earshot of her trash talk. Never have I seen a "human" so intent on making others miserable with her speech. But to say she makes people miserable would be to give her too much credit; it would be admitting that this woman actually has influence.

It is shocking, Ms. Coulter, that you feel the need to crap all over your First Amendment Right. Treat it with respect, Ms. Don't dare to be more and more outrageous with each appearance. What makes you such an expert on all things that are currently going on in the world? Answer that question, please. What makes you so "all knowing" of all things? Did you EVER hear anyone say "Everything I have learned in this life I have learned from statistics?" No, no Ms Coulter, they have not. What we learn in this life we learn from the people we surround ourselves with and those we do not. We learn by bringing in opinions that differ from ours and learning to respect them. We learn by doing our best to walk in someone else's shoes.

You know nothing. You are nothing. I am ashamed that people of the world may see or hear or read the toxic junk you push out into the universe. I am afraid that they may equate all Americans to be the same as you.

How dare you! On any and everything you've done, how dare you, Ms. What a cold and lonely life you must lead and will lead. I pray for you. I pray that you may find a way to repent for all of the wrongdoings you have perpetrated and that after enough penance that you may be worthy of some small amount of love and joy. But as of now, you don't deserve a drop.

How dare you.


beth   February 20th, 2009 12:37 am ET

Thank GOD that that classless, egregious THING is GONE!!! Goodbye Ann and good riddance!


desi   February 20th, 2009 12:37 am ET

dont watch much of the view or larry king, surfing channels and cant believe this woman, ann, i like her and i will buy her book
joy let her finish answering the questions you ask her, joy you seem angry when you ask a question as a person who interviews shouldnt you keep your personal agenda to yourself? interview and allow the person at the table to respond,

i really liked this show, and ann, she has a lot of knowledge and information
desi


Nancy Grits   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

I am a single mother, both of my children were honor students, respected athletes and community volunteers throughout their primary and seconday school years. Both are now attending college on full academic scholarship and member's of the University's Honors Prgram.
How dare Ann suggest they would be better off if I'd given them up for adoption. My suspicion is the obviously miserable Coulter is simply jealous of woman who can have successful careers and raise wonderful children.


Melissa   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

Joy behar was completely out of line with her actions towards ann. When you have someone on a show to ask somebody questions you would want that person to listen and not attack them. She should have been kicked off the show when she used the word, "whoring democratic women." She should have been removed immidately. She is absolutely too disrespectful to fill in for Larry! Pick somebody who is more intelligence and isn't so agressive-sided.


Maggie   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

Your loud mouth guest "Ann", seems to get her jollys from bad mouthing people, anyone. She almost has a bitter, envious grin on her face everytime I see her. She has this phony smile, I kind of feel sorry for her, Can you imagine this woman in 20 years??? God help us, and Ann too......She looks like she starves herself, poor thing, pit bulls have treats, you should eats some too Ann. Your an angry little girl, grow up.


Keycall   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

Ann, Please keep telling it like it is ! – please run for office. You have more balls than anyone representing the republican party todate, you are NOT affraid of the liberals and say it like it truely is, which unlike most of the winnies in office today. I love it when you come on CNN and other biased liberal major network TV shows and put their views into perspective – LIberals / Socialists don't get it, I do, I love the USA and the spirit of Capitalism. those that take risks, and make it are NOT responsible for those that want a gov't handout, and just want to sit on their ass, because they are intitled to.....being taken care of ,lying around in gov't housing pumping out baby after baby......idiotarcacy ! Thats our future if we don't wake up !


Dian Anderson   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

I waited to see Joy this evening and although her expertise really pinned coulter down quickly, I would like to see the whole deal, I will never read coulters books, Joy needs to expound on her opinion from the written articles she read.
Untill America decides to hold unmarried men as responsible and the procreation they contribute to and America legislates that responsibility, because they will not take that responsibility on their own,then you cannot hold single women acountable for the demise of America.


Jim   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

Ann Coulter? Larry, why are you giving her the time of day? Joy, I can answer your question to Ann: "do you think people hate you?" A resounding YES! Lots of people hate her. If you'd like, I can gather signatures. Why has her book sold? Hmm.. puzzing, I know. Except I also know there are millions of ignorant bigots in this country, just like her – quite unfortunately. FYI, I turned off the show when I tuned in and saw that brief snipet.


Joshua Gonillo   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

I think Ann Coulter your an embarassment to yourself, your book, and the party you represent. I was brought up by a single mother and she raised me to a successful young gentleman that I have become today. Joy thank you for protecting the incredible mother that I have and her devotion; not to mention the mothers across America. That's why I have started a website OBAMAFORMAMAS.COM for Obamas support for "mothers" and "families" across America. Ann Coulter open your eyes and your mind to what's right wrong and stop acting so guilty when being questioned by Joy.

Sincerely,

Joshua Gonillo
OBAMAFORMAMAS.COM


ANN   February 20th, 2009 12:38 am ET

More people should speak their minds just like Ann Coulter, she is fantastic and says it like it is. You go girl. She is also right about the so called stimulus package-the middle class gets the shaft again!! This housing bailout thing is a JOKE! We are most likely bailing out people that bought houses they couldn't afford, paid nothing down, refinanced their houses to the max, using the money to buy a car they couldn't afford, going on vacations with the money they borrowed and on and on and on!!! Give me a break!!! I know some of the exact people that did this and they want bailed out????-what about people that pay their bills-don't we get anything??? Oh! I forgot, we are supposed to pay for these fools-what am I thinking about!!!


Laura   February 20th, 2009 12:39 am ET

Joy has my sympathy having to be in the same building with that Coulter freak of nature. One only needs to look at the picture of her on the blog site to see the image of the Anti-Christ. She is a madwoman in need of a good………………………………

Please do not subject us to that barrage of unrelenting venom or I will have no choice but to hurl my shoe at the TV before turning CNN off.

I am going to stake out a bookstore to see what kinds of lunatics are buying her books. They obviously are only doing so because they do not have an original thought of their own and are therefore, unwitting victims of the publishing company that publishes her drivel.


cONNIE   February 20th, 2009 12:39 am ET

She was asked, do people HATE you. She did not say that people LOVE her because she is a best-selling writer. However, if people who hate her are buying her books, good for her!

It's nice to hear her speak her opinion without trying to be politically correct or hide behind her words. How nice it would be if our politicians were truthful and kept the public up-to-date with what was going on, instead of pretending that things were going great. For example, prospective home-buyers should have been hearing on the news every single day that the housing market was incredibly inflated and warned against buying houses in 2005, 2006, and 2007. Instead, they kept quiet until just before the market crashed.

In addition, she does make a distinction between SINGLE moms and divorced or widowed mothers. I was a cop and it is true that the majority of juveniles I ran into, who were doing crimes were from SINGLE (never married women). Yes, the man is a vital part of the equation, but all the woman has to do is take a pill every day and take some responsibility for herself. It's so frustrating to hear people pass off the responsibility to someone else and blame the guy. Use some birth control if you are going to be sleeping around.


bbalex   February 20th, 2009 12:39 am ET

I thought I had some important things to say about Ann Coulter until I decided to read what others were saying, Russ is not married and have no children as well as Ann, They should hook up and have a family together. This could fill the gaps in their mouths.


Martin Sullivan   February 20th, 2009 12:39 am ET

It was with great pleasure that I watched Ann Coulter completely outclass the mean spirited Joy Behar on the Larry King show. This is the first time I've actually stopped channel surfing to watch it.
All hail Ann Coulter!


Smitty9400   February 20th, 2009 12:40 am ET

Why is the octuplet mom so reviled and hated when Mrs. Dugger is celebrated? Is it because the Dugger's are married? That could change at any time. I think the Dugger's are weird and in some way I think they are disgusting.

Ann Coulter tells it like it is....Joy did a terrible interview and should not have filled in for Larry if she cannot do a professional interview.


Maria   February 20th, 2009 12:40 am ET

I'm a single mother, who raised 7 children. I have never been on Welfare. My children, who are now adults, have never been in jail or on drugs... Ann Coulter should really investigate her facts before opening her mouth.


David   February 20th, 2009 12:40 am ET

Ann drastically confuses the issues – specifically she confuses "causation" vs. "correlation. She states that single motherhood is a "cause" of the 80% of the prison population. However the two are simply corrlelated such as the correlation with socioeconomic status, race, urban background. They are all factors.


CeeCee   February 20th, 2009 12:40 am ET

First off, I can't believe Ms. Coulter actually said she didn't have a job so she could watch TV during the day. Pretty unfeeling.

When she said she didn't believe people hated her I went to her website to send an email letting her know that though I didn't actually hate her, I felt she was a self-important statistics manipulating person. But I couldn't send her an email because apparently she's had the forsight to not have a "contact me" option on her home page. Oh, there is a chat area where one may disagree with her but only in the most respectful of ways. Any posting with "freemail" accounts will be automatically deleted. Moderators will determine what they find offensive.

Hmmmm.. no wonder Ms. Coulter thinks she is so popular. She's pretty much guarenteed she won't hear anything but rave reviews and affirmations of her sometimes bizarre and out of touch take on the world.


Nancy   February 20th, 2009 12:40 am ET

I agree with Ann Coulter on a lot of subjects, not all things. On Nayda Sulenman the babies should be taken away from her, I go a step further, I think she should be sterilized, so she can't pull this stunt again. On the Dugger family, the parents are married. There is a big difference. All children should be born to a mother and father.

I think Obama has already back tracked on his statement that he would have no lobbyist in his White House, He already has two,
one in the Treasury Dept the other from Raytheon in Defense Dept.

What a liar!!


jeff (Atlanta GA)   February 20th, 2009 12:41 am ET

I thibk its so sad and to a degree so dangerous the way "republicans" thinks....It reminds me of a hitler (mentaliity) I was watching Joy and her 1st guest...Ann and so disappointed on the mindframe of the republicans......Democrats dont have this way ..........blacks dont hate this way....why white republicans have such hatred ....where is the unity behind this administration and this country


California young republican   February 20th, 2009 12:41 am ET

why is joy behar on tv?


Julie   February 20th, 2009 12:41 am ET

Ann Coulter is right on the money about unwed moms and their kids winding up in jail!!!! (And again, we are talking about women OTHER than widows or divorcees.) I work in a prison system and am amazed at how many inmates have not even met their fathers. As for Bristol Palin...I am an Alaskan who is incredibly ashamed that a pregnant Bristol was featured during her (entirely unqualified ) mother's campaign. Bristol SHOULD have given up the baby for adoption. She is a clueless child...her mother is squarely to blame for that one. Nice that Sarah was charging the state of Alaska per diem for nights she spent at her home in Wasilla NOT monitoring her daughter. With a role model like this, Bristol's kid stands no chance at all.


Frank   February 20th, 2009 12:42 am ET

I love Joy on the view.. but why is she on Cnn?
As far as octuplet mom... just like everything else we do here in the US. it is what it is, so just fix it and move on.. If she needs medical, financial,daycare give it her, becasue that is what is going to happen anyway. since when do the taxpayers acutally have any say where the money goes.. who are we kidding


Ben Fichter   February 20th, 2009 12:42 am ET

The only thing wrong with republicans is that they believe the lies that the republicans in office tell them. Bush had a surplus that was only on paper? Please! The only reason Ann talks so fast is that she's afraid the opposition will actually come back with something that she can't spin. Why don't you explain why Bush's approval rating was so low? People like you are either told the wrong stuff and believe it, or you know you're lying but love the attention.


Terry Roemmelt   February 20th, 2009 12:42 am ET

I love Ann Coulter ........ and if Joy B is going to ask a question she should be a little more willing to listen to the answer.


Gladys   February 20th, 2009 12:42 am ET

Larry, please do not have Joy Behar on your show anymore, her constant interrupting (which she does on the view) is so irratating that I feel like changing channels. No meaningful dialogue is viewed because she interrupts when Her views are not matched. Her views are so askewed due to her self righteous attitude that she is like a mad hatter.


Frances Stearns   February 20th, 2009 12:43 am ET

Ann Coulter is everything we would never want our children to be. She is beyond reprehensible. Aren't there laws against hate mongers? Would she not qualify as a hate monger? I thought Joy was amazing. I don't know how she did not lose her cool with someone so horrid in their intolerance and self righteousness.


Charles Max   February 20th, 2009 12:43 am ET

Ms. Coulter's interview with Joy Behar demonstrates again that Ms. Coulter does not merit air time. Her thoughts are largely undeveloped, and she risks alienating most American social groups for the sake of shock-value. We hope that she may find a wonderful charity to devote herself to completely so that she may have a constructive life as opposed to the one she exhibits now.


ANN   February 20th, 2009 12:43 am ET

Probably and more than likely, the people who can't stand Ann Coulter are the ones who refinanced their houses that they couldn't afford in the first place and now want bailed out!! You go Ann Coulter!!! She is one lady that calls an ace an ace!!


Susan Harris   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

The tock bottom of talk shows, Joy Behar and her sneering and shrieking and not a smile on her face for anything, she is so miserable and full of herself and her delusion of superiority, and her intolerance for other points of view, she is just repulsive, she was vindictive to Ann Coulter because of things that happened on The View, has it come to this, Larry? Joy has no talent whatsoever, what is her claim to all these insights and opinions? did the child she so famously rear by herself find the cure for cancer? what is Joy's claim to fame to look down on anyone that disagrees with her. "ok we're back", I mean, Joy needs a break from tv, she is toast.

I wont be back, Fox is more polished, more interesting, more personality, more fun people, this is too rugged for me. Good Luck with all this negativism, people are sick of it and I mean the attitude, and the sourpusses. Everyone is smiling and open and friendly at Fox and well groomed. Joy is a mess.


Perceptive   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

Hi Joy, love you on the view and larry King Live. Love the way you think it's nice to hear a sensible woman it today's society.


Jack Fauntleroy   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

Anne is a fascist. You should support who the "People" elected. If it's not your way, it's wrong? That's a dictatorship. You are the typical fascist. Just like "Rush", you are a joke, that's why I watched tonight and that's why a lot of people listen to him. Not b/c I "Like" you or care about the hate you speak, but b/c your a nazi joke. Why don't you shave your head and join the KKK and get it over with. Your so close now, I know you can taste it. You are not an American.You may have been born here, but you don't stand for what is American. "Winners" win and the losers "bow out". You are a "shock jock" and nothing more. Support the president. That's what a democracy does. Even the side that lost should respect the "winner" until he is proven wrong. Nothing has been proven yet. Just your opinion is running your mouth with no facts to back it up. If you like Sarah Palin so much, ( by the way, she lost ) then go live with her in the great white north and let the rest of us try to get back on track. You make me want to puke.


Frank wempa   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

CNN and Behar should be ashamed. I fell for the bait and tuned in after seeing ad earlier ad. I wAs disappointed to find not an interview, but a berating. If you watch your own tape you'll see Joy hit the ground running with an adrenaline pumping attack on Ann. The two follow-up panels were treated with respect. It was as if Joy is bilateral. Ann's first response was heated and sarcastic in response to the tone of the disrespectful question. I keep trying to give CNN a chance, but continue going elsewhere for my news entertainment.


ralph - lexington   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

i saw her on another show a few months ago and was like whois this woman? i turned to lkl and here she is again!!! i am an avid reader and have never read any of her books, or heard of her, and i'm glad!!! this woman is CRAZY!!! her views are extremely distorted!! when it comes to her books, she has delusions of grandeur of her popularity; and if that many people suscribe to her school of though, we need to watch out for the person on the bus next to us, or in the store, or resturaunt next to us!! she is certiifiable for real!! can you say diagnostic statistical manual for behavioral disorders?


Carol   February 20th, 2009 12:44 am ET

Wow, now I know why I don't and won't watch The View. Joy Behar was so over her heard interviewing Ann Coulter it was ridiculous. Joy asked such stupid low class questions and when one or two questions of substance were asked, Joy was so flustered and in the words of Jack, "couldn't handle the truth". Nice going Ann, you were awesome. Joy, I think you would be great at dishwashing soap commercials.


Jer   February 20th, 2009 12:45 am ET

Joy is right she certainly does not know politics, she needs to go back to her day job..... no please don't do that either the View is just as painful to watch. Joy always blabs here mouth off, it great to see someone shut her up. I agree with most of Ann's views I only wish she could do it with a little more dignity.


Diamond   February 20th, 2009 12:45 am ET

What you were basically saying is that it was OK for Bush to bend us over with no ky-jelly Dame!!!!!!!!!


Frank   February 20th, 2009 12:45 am ET

the women need psych help.. give it to her, take her kids and give them the medical help she needs, and slowly at the guidance of the law, give her children back to her with assistance.. the dr should be under investagation..


Sarah   February 20th, 2009 12:45 am ET

The entire octo-mom controversy is pure misogyny.


Terry   February 20th, 2009 12:46 am ET

Round 1 ...Ann Coulter. Love how she keeps her cool. She's brilliant!


jim   February 20th, 2009 12:46 am ET

Coulter is the most brainwashed ignorant person ever to be on your show. Everything she says about liberals and democrats is absolutely false and speculative. I cant believe any reporter or talk show host every takes her serious, her public life is nothing but a circus and she is the self appointed ring master. Clinton claimed the surplus because he created it, the republicans fought everything he tried to do, There has never been anything but a deficit during any republican administration, they dont know how to create a surplus. Trickle down does not work, giving money to the rich does not work, they dont invest is in this country, they either bank it for interest, or invest it in other countries for cheap labor, they dont care about this country at all, only their profit, no matter where it comes from. As far as "socialism" a nice blend of socialism and freemarket economy is a good thing. Every industrialized country in the world has national healthcare for its people, we can have that here with the current tax base we have, if we stop wasting tax money in other countries. We deserve to have the same healthcare that we give the polliticians for free. Ann coulter is nothing but a sensationalist , she is contraversial to sell her books, her bottom line is personal wealth, she doesnt care a thing about the american people.

I love the LK show, but tonight I'm dissappointed. I wasn't too familiar with who Ann Coulter was, and no matter what her views, she is entitled to them – we don't have to agree with them. However, I felt sorry for her being attacked by Joy – she was very antagonistic – not a good trait for an interviewer.


cONNIE   February 20th, 2009 12:47 am ET

HEY LARRY.....PLEASE DON'T HAVE JOY BEHAR "INTERVIEW" ANYONE AGAIN!!

IF YOU ASK A QUESTION, listen TO THE ANSWER.

GOES JOY...WHAT AN ILL-INFORMED MORON!!


Angell Silye   February 20th, 2009 12:47 am ET

Ann needs to get in touch with reality. The only way she gets any attention is by creating conflict.
This is a woman who is against abortion but then she criticizes single mothers, but is also against sex education for the young adults.
Does this woman have any common sence? Or is she so short sighted?
What planet is she living on?


Che from Hawaii   February 20th, 2009 12:47 am ET

I'd like to share that I am an only child and son of a hard working single mother who gave me the best "lottery ticket" one could ever need, genuine love, respect, and compassion for human kind. Thanks Ann!!


Val Jackson   February 20th, 2009 12:47 am ET

I would like to congratulate Ann Coulter on keeping her cool when interviewed by the woman from the view. I like to hear a strong woman make the comments about hard issues and not back down.

We have serious issues in this country and Ann is a refreshing voice that lays the blame for social problems on the persons responsible for them i.e., single mothers and their children who waste away their lives in prison, silly people who purchased homes way over their head and now I am going to have to support them in their purchase as no one has had to do for me, and people who forget that there is a group of people who would like nothing better than to bring down America.

I can only hope that we, the people of the US, wake up to these problems and not blame their government, but blame themselves for their situation. I am a responsible person who raised four great kids who have all done well with their lot in life, working hard, not asking for hand outs and being strong during this time of weakness.

America, wake up. Our forefathers did not expect the country to take care of them, it was the people who made our country great and not the bought politicians and paid personalities that continue to blame any problem on someone else.

Please do not have this woman interview again as her intelligence is not up to the task to face Ann Coulter. And, by the way, I did not buy the OBAMA book or the Coulter book, but people that do spend their money on books usually buy them because they enjoy the difference of opinion of respected individuals. Something that the democrats should try doing instead of sticking their heads in the sand when another opinion not like theirs is brought up.

Also, I bet the Duggar family have always been married, always taken care of their kids, and never asked for help from Washington because of their choice to have so many kids. Unlike the unwed mother of 14 kids who only did this to gain fame and fortune, more food stamps and welfare and just being a burden on our society. I hope that none of my taxpayer money goes to supporting this woman who has made the exceedingly bad decisions that she made with the help of a stupid doctor.


zman   February 20th, 2009 12:47 am ET

We are in a state of crisis socially and financially. We are bankrupt as a country by and large in both of the above stated areas. There is a total lack of accountability on all levels. We have taken our opportunity for freedom on all levels political, social, and financial. This freedom has caused us dire circumstances and all we can do is point fingers at one another while the house is burning down. We have run into total moral collapse. Some of us are hoping that maybe president Obama can rescue us and some of us are listening for hope from Ann and Rush. God help us!!


Linda Petty   February 20th, 2009 12:48 am ET

Ann, you're awesome.
Joy, I don't get you.


Ihsan   February 20th, 2009 12:48 am ET

Are you kidding me, this Anne lady is horrible. Can she say the word me me me just a little bit more. Have a little self respect lady, not to mention some respect for the people. And you say that no one hates you. Try reading 90% of this blog and then check your love hate statues.

Some people say its good that she speaks her mind, but there's a difference in speaking your mind and just being plane rude and disrespectful.


BRIDGIT DAVIS-YOUNG   February 20th, 2009 12:48 am ET

JOY, YOU ARE AWESOME! ANN HAS MET HER MATCH. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR THE OPINON OF A BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT CRITIC ANN'S BODY LANGUAGE. SHE WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. SHE DODGED YOUR QUESTIONS.


Roma Sysyn   February 20th, 2009 12:48 am ET

Again, Ann Coulter misses the point. Joy asked about the widows of 911 and Ann Coulter said, "Why are we still speaking about them?" Joy didn't bring them up to discuss them, she brought them up to make a point, that the comment was mean and why say something mean about women who lost their husbands in a heinous act. The women doesn't get it at all.


Rhythmz   February 20th, 2009 12:49 am ET

You go girl! Tell it like it is. The very people who disagree with Ann either stand to recieve a free handout or spout the same sentiments in the privacy of their own homes. Democrats can say that Bush gave us a $5 trillion deficit in 8 years (that democrats helped appropriate) but Obama is up to over $2 trilllion in his first 100 days and it shows no sign of slowing. When the Obama high wears off, the honeymoon is over, BO fans will realize that Congress just spent $1 trillion, we don't even have, without even reading the bill. Call Coulter a racist of a liar. At least she has a pair to put the truth in your face and not run from the likes of an opportunistic race baiter like Sharpton, the media's own favorite "black leader". I guess Cosby is a racist too for his well-stated comments in Atlanta, huh?


Shawn S.   February 20th, 2009 12:49 am ET

Praise the Lord for Ann and all those like her that shine a bright light on those who manipulate their views to suit themselves, their causes/ agendas and betterment of their own careers. If you don't show the actual item being spoken of...(Barbara Walters reading from Ann's book for instance) your words that follow are MEANINGLESS! We (avg. Americans) are not going to accept this manipulation of information anymore...period. This media manipulation is just as disgusting and unacceptable as those stealing the taxpayer's relief with total disregard for our nation! Ann is a breath of fresh air! Shine the light! Great job as always handling Joy's attacks and demonstrating why you, Ann, are a true patriot!. Once again, Ann proves to be a modern day heroine calling things as they truly are!


angela   February 20th, 2009 12:49 am ET

Joy should learn to hide her distaste a little better, but then again, Ann knew the lions den she was entering. Round 1,2, and 3 go to Ann. Ann was right to laugh – Joy, you are a joke.

What a dumb comment – that Ann wants the legislation to fail so that the Republicans can get back into office. Most people want to make sure the stimulus money is used for only recovery items – not abortions overseas and other pork projects hidden in the pages of this bill. (And certainly not to reward those people who bought houses they couldn't afford!) I'm with you, Ann!


Cathy Ross   February 20th, 2009 12:49 am ET

Ann Coulter is absolutely sarcastic, abrasive, and venomous. She is in great need of a heavy dose of being human and kind. She was talking so fast to prove her extreme olitics that Joy could not even have a reasonable conversation. She's a female Rush Limbaugh..Please don't have her as a guest again. Obnoxious


Caitlin Wright   February 20th, 2009 12:50 am ET

It is very easy to judge people like the octuplet's mother. She is a single mother, hasn't had a picture perfect life, and has made herself an easy target with her lack of awareness of the media. She has made several mistakes obviously, but doesn't someone talk about casting the first stone somewhere? Why aren't people helping her? Can you see anyone else in the media right now that needs as much help? Why aren't the companies helping the children? It is about the children and I would suggest that removing children from there mother does nothing to help the child in the long run. It makes more sense and will serve the FAMILY more if the criticism would stop and support would start. Kids need to be with there parents and parents need to be healthy. This could be something very positive why don't we try that for a change?


charlie rodrigues   February 20th, 2009 12:50 am ET

Maybe Ann Coulter is on the same drugs that

Maybe Ann Coulter is on the same drugs that Rush took. We had eight years of Bush and the other guy which I call the shadow (not so tricky dick). The economy went south in the Bush presidency and Ann put a sack over that head or a burka. Like the song says YOUR SO VAIN


patti   February 20th, 2009 12:51 am ET

ann coulter is a lot smarter and a lot funnier than joy behar....I think she is way out of joy's league....fun interview though


Mary Dabe   February 20th, 2009 12:51 am ET

I am appalled at Joy, that was not interviewing Ann Coulture but an attack on her. She had to defend herself, against the ranting of Joy, she did not allow her to talk about her book or herself. What don't you understand about "interviewing" a famous, quick-witted and highly intelligent author? Its not all about you, your opinions & sarcasm Joy.


Alexia Fierros   February 20th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Paul, you sound too angry, totally intolerant and radical. Who are you to say that this or that person does not deserve God's mercy. You are falling into blasphemy. Are you a true believer? Please do not take over God's job judging people…You're scary. So I ask you: How dare you???
To Stephanie Hrabe's commentary above. Totally agree with you. Joy is an angry- frustrated comedian turned into a journalist by a stroke of luck, who uses shallow statements and “word” traps to look smart. Ann is an astute, well cultured woman that shouldn't expose herself to be interviewed by no other than Larry, who at least can conduct a more objective and respectful interview.


Tayesha   February 20th, 2009 12:51 am ET

I find it hard to understand why anyone would think it is better to have a child, that is not being neglected, put up for adoption because they are being raised by a single mom!! For one, I know PLENTY of people who were raised by single moms and their mothers did a DAMN GOOD JOB!!! Some of them were better off without their fathers because the fathers were abusive or drunks or just overall a piece of trash. I hear you same something about shot gun weddings. What about those couples that were together for a couple of years before that got married?? Stayed married for 15 years and things still didn't work out? What about women or sometimes men, that get physically, mentally, or emotionally abused by their spouse?? Should they stay for fear of being a single parent?? That sounds pretty ridiculous to me! It almost sounds like the same mentality from many years ago that made women believe it was okay to stay with a man that wasn't treating them right or was abusive, to stay in the marriage or relationship for fear of being a "single mother" and being scrutinized because she left the relationship or marriage. Also, with so many kids being in foster care and so many put up for adoption, do we really need anymore children put in that situation? Do you know how many children would be in these systems if we had EVERY SINGLE MOTHER IN AMERICA put their child(ren) up for adoption? Sounds ludacris doesn't it??? So many more children we live in the system without being adopted, as so many are now.

What we should be talking about is trying to teach, educate and provide knowledge so that even if a relationship or marriage doesn't work out, men will know that they can and should STILL BE FATHERS TO THEIR CHILDREN!! There is no excuse for that!!! You are making it easier for MEN and even some women, not to take responsibility for raising the kids they have brought into this world by saying that they can just put the child(ren) up for adoption, if it is not going to be a two parent home. Where is the responsibility in that? Your intentions to speak out on single mothers I think is being misdirected. You might have an interest to protect the children, but the solution that you provide is not logical. But I guess that is how you get your ratings and get your books to sell!!


Neil   February 20th, 2009 12:51 am ET

A conservative woman asked to field a bizarre question on national TV like "who has more orgasms, liberal women or conservative women?" and not miss a beat, deserves respect. Go Ann!


Perceptive   February 20th, 2009 12:52 am ET

When Ann Coulter speaks, she reminds me of the books I read about the people in the Apartheid movement, Hitler in Germany and the Slave masters in America. With people like her living on earth I know I am in Hell.


Tes Zere   February 20th, 2009 12:52 am ET

No wonder the Republicans lost last election. Ann Coulter is their spokesperson and thus helped them to look stupid and arrogant once again. She thinks that she knows it all and that she is that Republican Goddess. Seeing her on Larry King and listening to her answers to the questions she was asked clearly proved to me once more the reason why we went through the past eight years of lies, greed and stupidity under the Bush Administration. I was also reminded why we find ourselves today in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Way to go Ann, are you still in the Bush's payroll?


Michelle   February 20th, 2009 12:53 am ET

Is Joy ever sensitive with her topics? She is so vulgar in front of young kids...It will be a sad day when she replaces Larry King who is an objective journalist not biased...


Casey   February 20th, 2009 12:54 am ET

are the duggers different from the octuplet mom...YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! they are happy..they dont ask for public assistance....they work their asses off, are nice people, built their own house, and are great parents. oh, and they're not delusional. Can joy behar get any more nasty toward them.....??????? jealous??????


sed   February 20th, 2009 12:54 am ET

We love ann coulter. i agree with all of her point of views. she is very smart. she nailed down that lady.


Tim   February 20th, 2009 12:56 am ET

Ask the Duggars where they get their money. Word in our region is they are supported by their church. It may not ne public assistance, but it is assistance!!!!! Not quite the self-supporting Republicans that they pass themselves off as.


sue   February 20th, 2009 12:57 am ET

Who was the guest Ann Coulter or Joy Behar? I couldn't tell Behar talked more than the guest. I don't like either one of them one is so far left and the other is so far right you can't believe either one of them. I hope the don't have Behar on anymore she is nails on a chalkboard when she speaks and won't shut up. I just hope that this show is not going to let her take over or I will have to stop watching.


Frank   February 20th, 2009 12:57 am ET

After reading all the comments I have to say I don't understand why CNN put Joy on the Air. I watch CNN all day at work and home and I watch it because I trust the network and the people delivering. JOY is not CNN material, if I want to hear JOY I would watch the view during daytime. She is a soap girl and extremly good at that.. But not for CNN. I am very dissapointed in the network. You guys lost your class tonight.


Jeff Warden   February 20th, 2009 12:58 am ET

Shame on you Joy, you kept attacking Ann Coulter trying to make her
respond in kind, She made you look totally unprofessional. Ann kept her cool and answered all of your questions cooly and with a keen sense of intelligence. Ann should be given of medal for putting up with your obvious negative vibe. Larry certainly slipped when he asked you to host his show.


Michelle   February 20th, 2009 12:58 am ET

Joy needs to take some classes on how to interview people, not attack them when they do not agree with her. There are about 50 million who did not vote for Obama and are conservative, everyone does not have liberal views like you Joy.


nichol   February 20th, 2009 12:58 am ET

i have to say this episode really upsets me. just who does this woman think she really is GOD i don't think so. i think if more people minded their own business we wouldn't be in all this trouble. as for what she said about single woman raising children on their own and them ending up in prison. i want to know where she is getting her information. because that is the most stupid thing i have ever heard. i myself and a single mom of two great boys. one is 8 and the other is 6. so by what she is saying no matter the situation in the relationship the woman needs to stay. well about a dad who beats the mom? should she say and let the kids think that is how you treat a female? i don't thin so. and i have you know my kids and i have gone through a lot of things in our lives but i would not have it any other way. who does she think she is telling single moms they don't have the right to the American dream? i think she is just has to much time on her hands and needs to find another hobby. as for the lady in California i think everyone needs to get off their high horses and leave her alone. we are busy destroying a country killing father and mothers every minute of everyday and yet there we are paying for their actions. what kind of person would truly go in and take multiple babies away and split them up? REALLY do you think in the long run that will be mentally right. i mean think what these poor children will think. that is heartless as you can get. all i have to say is get a new hobby and leave defenseless people alone.


Casey   February 20th, 2009 12:58 am ET

SHAWN ONEAL...I LOVE YOUR COMMENT.


Terry   February 20th, 2009 12:58 am ET

Joy didn't give Ann a chance to fully explain her view on single mothers. You may want to buy the book ....her answer makes complete sense.
You can't argue with statistics.


Marcia   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

...immediately after 911, I looked for TV news station that gave the best coverage and I was very impressed with FOX News, consequently, my TV had been fixed to FOX News until the election campaign. Their complete right wing bias coupled with Ann Coulter's regular appearances on Hannity (formerly Hannity and Colmes) was too much. I guess Alan Colmes couldn't take it anymore either, he left. Anyway, CNN became my news channel during the campaign and has been since. Please don't make me look for another. I CANNOT stand that woman. She no longer tries to be subtle about her racism. Her blatantly comparing the manner in which Barbara Walters (Jewish) read her vitriolic piece of literature to that of Hitler's Mein Kampf is absolutely nauseating.


Barbara Sherrill   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Ann Coulter's statements about single Mothers is very stereotyped. I ended up raising my daughters single because their Father who is educated and an attorney failed the relationship and the promises of marriage many times. He planned every child because I used natural birth control, and being the trickster he is took advantage of it. He gave excuses for the first one, that he was told he couldn't have children, but whats his excuse for the other two? He provided good support for a few years after I finally had to prosecute him myself when the government was failing to, but then illegally set up to take it away when for a fourth time he was trying to get me to have another with him, even though he was married to another woman. He was angry because I wanted no part of it after he had failed to be any sort of definition of a Father to our already three beautiful daughters. On the whole my children were much better behaved than many of those with two parents, although it has always been emotionally upsetting to them that their Father has never been there for them. It is being even harder for them now that they are older, and he still doesn't play a Father role, even when they are successful college students. I think my children raised by a single parent would spoil Ann Coulter's stereotypes about children raised by single parents, because also don't forget Ann, there are Grandparents etc. Just like my Mother was rasied by her Mother and her Mother's sister and brother. So Ann you are a right wing stereotype, because in my situation it was the educated male gender (Republican) that was the problem, and even an attorney of all people.


angela   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

the Duggars seem fake to me & the older kids raise the smaller ones,thats why they can take care of so many.if given the choice I wonder if the older kids would want any more. older children should not have to parent when it was'nt their choice to bring them into the world.


Maggie, IL   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Even though I've always liked Joy, I have to say that tonight she's been very unprofessional in the way she's interviewed Ann Coulter. Now, Coulter is another story. I haven't read any of her books and I don't think I'd like them. What struck me though, as a mother of 2 kids, was her rude words about single mothers. I don't think that she's a mother, and therefore she has no right to even express an opinion about motherhood. And for her to say that it's better for a child to be given up for adoption or in foster care than to be raised by a single mother?!!! She obviously doesn't know what she's talking about. If she's so positive that single mothers are the root of our problems, I wonder what she has to say about abortion. Overall, I think that the interview was quite exciting to watch, but only on a "cat-fight" entertainment level. I truly prefer the Larry King style of converation. At least you can really learn something about the guest on the show when Larry is doing it his way.


Judith   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Many love you Joy on the View and when you come on Larry King.
Your not afraid to ask questions.
Thank you Larry for letting Joy interview when your not on.


Karen   February 20th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Great Job Joy!


Rhythmz   February 20th, 2009 1:01 am ET

I can promise you Ihsan that Ann could not use 'mem' nearly as much as Obama uses 'crisis' in one speech. His stimulus got passed, no surprise, so stop talking about CRISIS and then expect consumer confidence to increase. BO used 'crisis' 25 times in under 15 mins the other day. For those of you that are still on an Obama high, wait till the summer when the layoffs continue and you start to really feel punked! Sooner or later you will wake up and realize that 'CHANGE" doesn't actually apply to you but 'HOPE' certainly will. Coulter takes no prisoners and her views sting just like anyones who tells you the truth. If you don't believe that 80% of convicts are raised in single parent homes, then you must prefer to look at the 10% who are dropouts or the last 10% who actually succeed. It's no wonder we are in the place we are and Bush cannot get blamed for it.


Linda W Matthews   February 20th, 2009 1:04 am ET

Not only have I removed The View from my "viewing" list, but now the Larry King Show will be stricken each and every time that Joy Behar is hosting.


Casey   February 20th, 2009 1:04 am ET

BARBARA....SOUNDS LIKE YOU MARRIED A LOSER.


Jeannie   February 20th, 2009 1:06 am ET

Supposedly Nadya Suleman was spotted on Thursday looking at a possible new home worth $1.195 million (with only four bedrooms). Great. Everyone out there, all you have to do is lay a litter and you too can become a self-centered millionaire celebrity with a jacuzzi! Those children, all 14 of them, should be taken away and Nadya forced to work in order to provide support for them . Even her mom has said she's not sticking around to help, rather Angela wants to take the cash she has since made from her interviews and go back to Europe. Nothing has been about these children, and nothing ever will be.


Nicole   February 20th, 2009 1:07 am ET

Why is this woman so blind to the truth? Its seems that all so called conservative see things the way they want to. They are never flexible or cognisent of the fact that live changes and things change. There perceptions of live is not neccesarily reality and that the opinions of others are just as important as their own. Why can they just see the truth instead of seeing things through biased eyes of lies. I just want to meet one conservative with a common sensibility. btw Rush Linbaugh should not be anyone's leader. He cannot maintain himself and it is obvious if you look at his life. He does not maintain a household with a wife and child. He cannot control his health, he is overweight. and he cannot control his mind thus his need for prescription pills. Wake up people. Find a better leader like God or his son Jesus. Please erase the hate and put a little love in your heart.


Cindy   February 20th, 2009 1:08 am ET

Joy is terrible. She was attacking the entire time and is NOT representing the women of America. Thats why I hate THE VIEW – And while Ann speaks her mind – the fact is that there is mass illusion out there in that this spending thing and welfare bailout is absolutely the wrong thing.

Democracy always fails soon after as the people realize they can vote themselves benefits from the public treasury. You people are treading on the very viability of our country and freedom. Should we lose it all... I hope you feel the shame.


Rhythmz   February 20th, 2009 1:10 am ET

Of course the only conclusion about Coulter's single mother comment that can be drawn is disrespect to single mothers...not to the proven issue itself that men are more to blame for. The fact is that the issue exists, her conclusions are proven and well documented but simply stinging to hear just as Bill Cosby stated about his own people. Yeah, the "oreo' guy that used to be a pillar of the black community until his comments. Here is an idea for the black community. STOP ALLOWING THE MEDIA TO USE SHARPTON AS YOUR MOUTHPIECE!!! Race baiting instead of admitting to a cultural virus is not solving the issue neither is Coulter's comments a cause for it.


Gaby   February 20th, 2009 1:10 am ET

The animosity the American people have toward the octoplets' mom was ignited by the angle given to the news story by the major networks. The business of the Media is reaching its limit regarding the invasion of privacy. Sulema is not a public figure, like a political actors, yet she is being scrutinized more severely than the politicians Maddof. I believe the Media needs to begin to change the tone on this story to prevent any physical danger on this lady and her children. The news stories that damage a person's life or reputation (libel or slander) are not protected by the 1st Amendment. I think the media is walking on thin ice. It will not take long for the American people to realize that the profit lines are more important than true investigative reporting.


Terry   February 20th, 2009 1:12 am ET

Joy should stick with Comedy ... she sucks as an interviewer.

I used to look forward to her witty comments on the View, but ever since the presidential campaign she seems more interested in bashing people than entertaining them.


John   February 20th, 2009 1:12 am ET

What is wrong with anne? Come on! she said republicans were aware that the banks were doing crooked deals. But didn't do anythign because too much money was being made. What is she saying? That republicans didn't prevent this recession because they were making too much money. Is anne a republican? Because shes sure making the republicans look like a bunch of self-centered, money craving crooks.


Tere   February 20th, 2009 1:12 am ET

love Ann!!!! I'm a 30 year old hispanic woman... and I agree WITH EVERY WORD SHE SAYS!!!!


Charles S. of Winchester, VA   February 20th, 2009 1:13 am ET

Joy Behar really made me want to turn my television off. Her constant attacks and lack of listening to Ann's responses was just annoying. She truly represented how the left wing media hears what they want, and manipulate what they want to release to the public.

Guilty was a good read!!!


jim   February 20th, 2009 1:13 am ET

rhymthz, 89% of convicts also consider themselves christians, does that mean that christianity creates more criminals, like coulter is stating about single moms. What nonesense. Just a lame excuse to prove her point. Something else coulter failed to mention, no surprise, is that over 60% of american marriages end in divorce, in most cases due to abuse, so much for the so called "family values". Teaching children how to be good adults can be done by one single parent or by two who show love to their children. Children who must live with parents who hate each other and fight and argue all the time is far more detrimental to the childs upbringing than living with a single parent in a peaceful enviroment. People like coulter and her self righteous attitude would rather see parents stay together dispite the disruptive enviroment, just so they can claim the santity of marriage. This is ignorance at it's best.


CR   February 20th, 2009 1:15 am ET

why not take marriage more seriously first. let's promote the sanctity of marriage rather than scorn it, jim.


Jenn S   February 20th, 2009 1:16 am ET

Ann is one of the most miserable people I have ever heard of. Your statements have holes and your personality is fake and raunchy. Ann I hope you do not breed. Everyone will pray for those children for having a mother as fility as you. I love Larry King but will not continue to watch if he has Ann C on the show again.


Jeannie   February 20th, 2009 1:16 am ET

Oh I forgot...I don't hate you Ann Coulter. I cant take you seriously enough for that. You're just an errant brat.


jon   February 20th, 2009 1:17 am ET

i agree, i think we need to have more faith in marriage. why are we so negative about marriage....let's promote the family structure rather than destroy it


Caitlin Wright   February 20th, 2009 1:18 am ET

Nice Jeannie.


Mike   February 20th, 2009 1:19 am ET

Does Ann Coulter think her attitude is funny? She's so offensive I'm glad Joy had the sense to ask her to explain herself. What's with these weirdos?


ray   February 20th, 2009 1:22 am ET

i am so amazed to know that people like ann coulter so uninformed and so ugly could become role model and have a fan base. it shows how uneducated and backward thinking most americans are. this is the 21st century and she should grow up and have a life because she look miserable. wonder whose going to give her the so called orgasm shes talking about.


Mary from California   February 20th, 2009 1:30 am ET

I was appalled at Joy Behar's interview of Ann Coulture. What part of "interviewing" a famous author, best-selling author, highly intelligent and a beautiful person did you not understand ? Its not about you, your opinions and how threatened you are. You live in a very small world of self. Larry should invite Ann back for a "interview" about her book.


Cindy   February 20th, 2009 1:58 am ET

LARRY:

HAVING THAT LOUD MOUTH BEHAR ON YOUR SHOW WAS A BAD BAD THING...

WORSE THAN WATCHING CONAN INSTEAD OF LENO....BOO!

Joy you lived up to your reputation- just like on the View. You ask a question and then do not let the person answer. You also have a bad habit of saying something and when the audiece doesn't agree with you, you say That was a joke. You are not that funny and should take a tip from Whoopi listen to people and then in a NORMAL VOICE (without your silly smirks) give your opinion.

Barb   February 20th, 2009 2:14 am ET

Ann craves attention and is getting it through "negative attention seeking behaviour", like a child with behaviour problems. It's disappointing that anyone rewards her dysfunctional behaviour by giving her air time. She is "acting out" and this behaviour should be ignored.


Jess   February 20th, 2009 2:26 am ET

Ann C. should not be given any air time on any type of media. I believe she is putting on an act to annoy and anger people in order to sell more books. Let's not humor her... ignore and forget about her...don't buy her books!!


Sarah   February 20th, 2009 2:29 am ET

I am a fan of Joys. I watched the whole interview with Ann Coulter, who is very easy to dislike for a large # of reasons. Joy just did a poor job in interviewing her. If it would have been a formal debate Joy lost. Joy is more about the emotion and less about real facts.

I do not think that Ann Coulter is anyone's fav but Joy really dummied herself down. Why have someone on a show (view) if you just want to spear them?


Sarah   February 20th, 2009 2:38 am ET

Just read the comments about Behar- Coulter. The real complainers and objectionists to Ann Coulter are the single moms. They have every right. Ann is clearly a lightning rod to sell her book. Does not take away from Joy's stupid, emotionally driven interview. She is suppose to be filling in for Larry King. Where is the bar? LK should re-think having her in his seat. She sounds emotional. She errs on the side of emotional anger rather than good, intellectual dialogur that is much more productive to both sides


john r   February 20th, 2009 2:57 am ET

How can that woman say that no tax dolars are used to profide for the octamoms kids. Directly that may be ture. Where is the funding coming from. IF its from grants then taxes pay for the grants. If donations then donations lower tax debt. Someone has to make up the difference. It will eventually fall on the tax payer either indirectly or directly. How can this agency make such a claim....


Kiya   February 20th, 2009 2:58 am ET

Joy did a wonderful job tonite even if she had to listen to ANN!!! I really think Ann can have her option on politics and the war and government but the fact that she said that children raies my single parents are better off being adopted???>>>>!!!! Has she even checked the foster care system??? what about the type of children that are in demand for private adoption??? Yeah .... um ANN you really think that waiting in the system for some one to come and adopt you instead of being with a bio parent or family member is better???? Ask the kids in the system what they think??? unless she has lived both ways and has first hand knowledge.... yeah really ANN... get a clue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


j king   February 20th, 2009 3:04 am ET

Larry, larry, larry........

I know you love comedians, know you really think Joy B is funny, but really! Wrong choice for tonights interview. I do not like Ann C. But I cannot stand this Joy B. So immature, so shrill, so nasty, so so ugh! so embarassing! I was embarassed and I was alone watching her.


j king   February 20th, 2009 3:04 am ET

Larry, larry, larry........

I know you love comedians, know you really think Joy B is funny, but really! Wrong choice for tonights interview. I do not like Ann C. But I cannot stand this Joy B. So immature, so shrill, so nasty, so so ugh! so embarassing! I was embarassed and I was alone watching her.


j king   February 20th, 2009 3:10 am ET

and the worst part was when Ann C was trying to answer one of Joy's questions, Joy says to Ann, "take a breath".... (I'm shirking with disbelief!)


Charles in Tallahassee   February 20th, 2009 3:10 am ET

Ann, rest assured. People hate you. People definitely hate you. Don't fool yourself.


jackie   February 20th, 2009 3:14 am ET

this woman is so stupid. YES ANN I HATE YOU. theres 1. anyone else?


Ehren   February 20th, 2009 3:21 am ET

This was an amazing interview because Ann Coulter is so delusional. This is a women that thinks she is always right but yet try's to manipulate people to think that they are absolutely wrong. This woman needs to grab a clue no matter what if your a democrat or a republican there are a lot of people that hate her. Some people read her book because she's a joke and even though her books are bestsellers you'd be hard pressed to find anyone that takes it as fact. This is a Conservative that disgraces her party and will never change no matter what anyone says.


ARK   February 20th, 2009 3:23 am ET

Who is this disgusting woman Joy Behar?
I wouldn't want to meet her in an alley!
Probably the only place you would find her!


ARK   February 20th, 2009 3:26 am ET

I think I know why "Joy" is a single mother, no self respecting man would have her.


Gocachi   February 20th, 2009 3:29 am ET

If you put that woman (code name) Bich. I will never watch this show again.
Gocachi


Maria Shagena   February 20th, 2009 3:31 am ET

Ann Coulter thinks no one hates her. I won't use the word hate, but I detest her and Rush Limbaugh. They are the two most dispicable people I have listened tonext to Sean Hannity and Bill O' Reiley I've heard of in ages. She really thinks she is popular like the 20 million listeners Rush Limbaugh has. No wonder there are so many hateful people in this USA. Hate Mongers. Thank God she does not breed, as it would certainly be a baby Satan.


Ryan McCarter   February 20th, 2009 3:31 am ET

Joy, great to see you on the show! I think you do a great job handling Ann, staying calm while she hangs herself.


ARK   February 20th, 2009 3:32 am ET

How long can CNN survive with people like the "Joy" interviewing people; that woman is a disaster. She reminds me of the chimp that tried to eat the woman out east!

I bet she takes an "ugly pill" six times a day.


Mike   February 20th, 2009 3:32 am ET

No offense LK and and Joy but when the hell is Maher getting ahold of this clown!?!?!


Jorge   February 20th, 2009 3:32 am ET

Great idea to invite Ann Coulter! Your show is helping put her ignorance on the spotlight! Cheers to all single mothers!


jackie   February 20th, 2009 3:32 am ET

Where did this Ann person come from?, one would think she came from out of space.

This woman is a pour excuse for a woman.
I will have to stop right there, if I go any futher with the words i would like to use for her, I may get charged with some sort of crime.

Thank You
Larry King


EvaLena   February 20th, 2009 3:33 am ET

Thank you Ann, You are 100 % correct. More people need to speak up. I love your book, it has so many great points.

Also people need to THINK before having children. Single moms are a HUGE reason the society is the way it is today.


Kelsey Kaiser   February 20th, 2009 3:34 am ET

I love Ann. Single mothers need to stop having sex and having babies. Why do you think African countries are some of the poorest in the world?


Kelsey   February 20th, 2009 3:34 am ET

I'm not afraid to say it, Ann is fantastic! I saw her book in Borders the other day and considered buying it, after watching Larry King Live, I'm going to order it right now!


William Woods   February 20th, 2009 3:34 am ET

I do not understand how someone so crude, and pompous can be praised by people. I understand expressing your opinion in this country is one of our fundamental rights, but to verbally attack people for believing things that they do is utterly ridiculous. Ann Coulter is a joke. Her views are completely one sided, and she refuses to see anyone else's opinion without a prude smirk on her face. She looks down upon single mothers, but I can see why she has never been married (even after being engaged several times), or does not have any children of her own; nobody could stand her long enough to wed her or allow her to bear their children. I am pretty sure that is why she is such a grump. Good luck Ann, may God bless you, we can all see that you need it.


Vivian Goldberg   February 20th, 2009 3:34 am ET

I respect Ann Cooulter for her ability to stand her ground; she would not allow Joy Behar to minipulate her words. Bravo!


Laura Arrendell   February 20th, 2009 3:35 am ET

Ann is still the same mean-spirited pseudo-intellectual she aways has been. She says nothing of any real truth or value. And some of us single mothers have done a fine job with our children. There is nothing magical about marriage. Two wrongs definitely don't make a right. If we made a mistake so be it and there is a reason we did not marry. And adoption, Ann? Who knows what serial killer or child abuser might get the child? I'm not willing to take that chance. I have choices. I can choose abortion or I can choose to raise my child. I chose to raise mine and she graduated from a major university and is doing quite well! How Ann's books ever get to be best sellers is a mystery to me. I wouldn't read one of them on a bet!


KEN BRILEY   February 20th, 2009 3:36 am ET

WHEN. WILL SOMEONE END YOUR FITHTEEN MINUTES OF FAME.


Larry   February 20th, 2009 3:37 am ET

Joy Behar sure showed again what an idiot she really is. The only way she knows how to try to get her point across is to talk over anyone she disagrees with. Another brainless liberal. She cannot even make a valid point. It would be nice if she could shut up for a moment to try to look fair but we know she is not, and thinks her opinion is the only correct one. She figures if she just keeps talking she will sway opinion. She should stick to her worthless show the view.


pablo sigurdude   February 20th, 2009 3:37 am ET

Ann C is the most terrifying person I have ever watched on TV. Please don't ever bring her back.


Marietta   February 20th, 2009 3:37 am ET

I think that someone should investigate where Rush Limbaugh is when Ann Coulture is visable.

I would bet that the two of them can't be seen together because they are the same person,

Rush must have a long blond wig and fake eyelashes, and can do another really obnoxious voice. And he gets a chance to throw his hair around at an attempt to look sexy – yikes, nice try.

Actually, take a look at Ann's Adam's appple. Woah! That is one male looking adam's apple!

And of course the Republicans are having more orgasms – they're screwing more people! Hello!

And for the record, I hate you Ann Coulture/Rush Limbaugh.

No offese to the transgender/crossdressing population who probably hates you as well.


Diana MacKenzie   February 20th, 2009 3:38 am ET

Loved Ann Coulter as opposed to Joy Behar who thought she was on The View where the usual procedure is to shout out utter gibberish. It was an unfair "contest" because poor Joy is not mentally equipped to have a battle of wits with the eloquent Ms. Coulter


Bird   February 20th, 2009 3:38 am ET

Joy, you got your - handed to you tonight. Try to slow down relax and just say....I don't know. Because you don't. Just like most of the left and liberal democrats in government.


Mike   February 20th, 2009 3:41 am ET

I think we need to focus on the larger issue than labeling single mothers. I think that we need to come to a conclusion that whether your single married divorced widow whatever we have a population problem. There are no jobs and we still continue to have children we are running out of food and water and fuel worldwide but lets have more children. It should not be on the single mother that we focus but should be on society. Do people not understand that when they have that child that they may not have ea job enough food water in the future. Ann is hitting on the issue but not delving enough into it. Does she know why crime is so high not from a single mother but from lack of opportunity for growth in the future. We have to look beyond blaming a parent and address population control to effectuvely correct this problem.


Teresa   February 20th, 2009 3:42 am ET

I really like Ann. She says openly what so many of us have been conditioned that we should not say. Most of the time the cold hard truth is very uncomfortable, but bottom line it is the truth. We all need to get back to "right is right and wrong is wrong"; stop with this wishy washy thought processing....no wonder our kids are so confused.


James Carlisle   February 20th, 2009 3:43 am ET

Joy Behar

Great show! Boy is it refreshing to see you stand up to Anne Coulter!

I hope you fill in for Larry King more...In fact, you should have your own show. And don't be any less sassy. There are so few liberals who can talk back to those mouth right wing terrorists.

Jim


William Thornton   February 20th, 2009 3:44 am ET

I think that Ms. Coulter is out of touch with the general American population. Ms. Coulter is wealthy and promotes herself she does not relate to the majority of hard working Americans struggling to maintain their jobs and homes. Personally, I am sick and tired of her attacks against President Obama. As soon as the public realizes Ms. Coulter is using her ridiculous views to get rich she will go away. It's just a matter of time.


Deborah   February 20th, 2009 3:45 am ET

Ann,

Until you have pushed a child of your own out of your body and given he or she up for adoption, keep your mouth shut regarding women giving their children up for adoption in such a flippant way.

Deborah


temmy   February 20th, 2009 3:46 am ET

I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT LARRY ASSUALY HAD JOY TO FILL IN TODAY TO ASK MORE OF THIS TOUGH QUESTIONS FROM THIS ANN WHO IS FULL OF HATE. GO JOY!!! AND YOU ANN YOU ARE JUST FULL OF HATE, I WONDER IF YOU ARE HAPPY WITHIN YOURSELF. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THOSE BUYING OUR BOOKS IDIOT.


marlene ormesher   February 20th, 2009 3:47 am ET

I dont think there are any excuse for her she has done this for money only She new her financial situation She was also aware of the birth defects from her previous children and she care nothing for the health or welfare this is nothing short of a crime she shoukd be steralized and have all the children taken from her


Enoch   February 20th, 2009 3:47 am ET

This is very offensive, I watch the Larry King show for serious discussions of issues, Ann Coulter's appearance tonight is very offensive, this offends the intelligence of the viewers.
I don't mind people expressing contrary views, that's what our democracy is about, but to bring some on air to haul insults at people and make ridiculous and unsubstiated comments denigrates this show. There's already one Jerry Springer show, there's no need for another.


ARK   February 20th, 2009 3:48 am ET

Tonight is the first time I have heard of Ann Behar.

Her mouth is full of vomit, she is an alley cat.


Diana MacKenzie   February 20th, 2009 3:50 am ET

Joy Behar is not mentally equipped to have a battle of wits with the eloquent Ann Coulter. The View is better suited for her incoherent ranting and raving.


ARK   February 20th, 2009 3:53 am ET

Very interesting! I am wasting my time, I notice that you only post comments that favor your cause! Good night, I will not tune in your show again. Bye Bye Larry! You were a true professional.


Bruce Hibbert   February 20th, 2009 4:14 am ET

Ann speaks the truth, sometimes with no tact, but the truth nonetheless. It seems that those idealistic, under-25, blinded by Obama folks have a hard time accepting the harsh facts of life. It would be nice if good intentions always netted good results, but the billions of dollars in the Socialist Stimulus Bill will be wasted through bureaucracy and greed.

Thank you, Ann, for speaking the truth.....and, Joy, you did a fairly good job interviewing her, given the liberal restraints of CNN. Let"s see if my blog gets posted.....copy and paste for later.


Alice   February 20th, 2009 4:18 am ET

Regarding Ann Coulter and the octomom... how did people get so hateful? I'm guessing that it's just about making money for Ann Coulter – being rude, shocking, irreverent are just ways of attracting attention whether she says anything that makes sense or not. Salesmen know that it's not what you say, but how you say it that gets people to buy your product.

It's alarming though, to see such outright aggression and lack of empathy for her fellow human beings. Sure, she's pretty and she plays with her hair which makes her sexually attractive to men (it's been studied – men are turned on when women play with their hair and touch their own faces), but she just talked mean spirited nonsense and acted like a red-neck! How did hatefulness and ignorance become accepted as political dialog or even entertainment? She even said she believes her value lies in the number of books she can sell. Deeply disturbing to hear her say that the republicans are upholders of the Constitution when we've just endured 8 years of Bush's continuous attacks against the Constitution.

Also disturbing to hear the contempt, the willingness to attack the octomom – someone who is obviously not in her right mind. I think we are moving toward a very dangerous group lynch mob mentality in this country if a group of self righteous and obviously angry people are allowed to use the law to attack a woman and her 14 children with no real intention of helping – to steal the children and only take care of them for 6 months will leave them in a worse situation than they face without their "help." They're obviously not doing this to actually help those children, but merely to express their hatefulness and even to somehow punish the mom and her children for what is just an unfortunate situation. Personally, I do think the children should be given up for adoption to families who can actually take care of them and raise them in loving homes – and octomom should get the psych help she obviously needs. She also needs the kind of support we believe her children deserve.


Yaz   February 20th, 2009 4:28 am ET

To whom it may concern at CNN
Having People like Annn Coulter & Rush Limbaugh on the show
Is the reason why people hate Americans...
These two are a waste of time, so called adults who have gone to university but learnt nothing.
At this time when the whole world is going thru a recession caused by
the repulicans, if you cant help, Shut the hell up........
Ann is just trying to sell her book & wants the lime light.
Rush..well this fellow should be locked in a insane ward & throw away the keys...
People have to give President Obama a chance he has been given
such a bad hand.. & the whole world is rooting for him..


robert   February 20th, 2009 4:35 am ET

Wow. It amazes me that this grown woman speaks with such confidence...and yet says some of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. How can Ann sit there....with her condescending little laughter, and make such ridiculous points? Does she honestly think she is right? She is making such a fool of herself. Very few people are willing to believe in this garbage, especially at a time like this. News Flash to the Republicans: You lost almost every possible vote by a landslide. Nobody is happy with the mess you have created in this country. So now, one month into Obama's presidency, what gives you the right to start yapping and criticizing? Be quiet. You were voted out for a reason.


Dawn Mason   February 20th, 2009 5:07 am ET

I am disturbed by America's response to the the birth of 8 children and their 6 siblings. There has to be some way to get these children raised in America to become normal contributing adults. As Americans we are such hypocrites, we have hundreds of thousand uncared from children in our nation, do we really care about 14 more? Not really. Likewise there are families with one child they can not take care of and families with many who do a great job. I am the godparent to 13 now adults whose mother gave natural birth to 11 of them (no twins) and adopted another 2 into the family. She died of breast cancer when the youngest was 16 years old and left them to my husband and I as their godparents. I could never understand why she had so many children, but I can say she took care of each of them, they had good educations, and are adults who are taking care of theirselves. I do not Nadia can raise these children, in fact because of their births all together and within 8 years of each other, we know she can not. Since we know this, we as a nation need a plan. I am going to Kenya in a couple of weeks, I will see more children then can be imagined here in this country, beautiful children, loved by their families and caregivers. I meet women who take care of 20 children, most not their own due to AIDS taking too many lives of young parents. We see the images of African children on television and we respond emotionally to a bid for money to care for them. (an aside these people collecting money through television should be investigated – there are no flies in eyes babies and there is little evidence that the billions of dollars they have collected is being used well) back on topic.

If World Vision (their presence is evident in Kenya) saw these children as vulnerable and in need of America's care we could as a nation get them what they need. They need a home, their mother and grandmother need a team of mothers and fathers to help them raise these children. Nadia is who she is and obviously not well. Who cares what she says and does, the children need to be raised together as siblings and we do not need to wait for her to mess up, w know she will. I will ask World Vision to help,, and see if they care about the children at home as well as abroad.

CNN can make a difference here, by changing the focus from attacking the mom to being advocates for the children. Keep them with mom, and recruit an army. I raised three children and it almost killed me. Getting any child from the cradle to college on time and within budget was the most difficult project that any will have to manage.

So while as Americans we sit in front of televisions see "exotic" children and respond, we can respond to these 14 children. I am bothered by the fact that CNN is being irresponsible i this issue. Joye Behar and Larry King can make the difference. You do not have to make money for CNN on the backs of these children. And really your viewers will love you as much or more if you asked the collective America to make sure these children who are here for whatever reason born to an idiot, get what they need to be safe and whole. We will take care of them now or later. So let's invest now.

Do not, please do not push the state's hand to parcel out these children, that is where CNN is headed. These are children that I am sure midlle class white families are chomping at the bit to get their hands on. Bring the help to the children, not let the otherwise barren pick over them as in I'll take that one,, oh isn't she cute, I want that one. No, they are brothers and sisters and belong together. Habitat for Humanity can build a house for them, and World vision can ask us to help feed them, and move in an army of nannies to help Nadia and her own mother.

Come on America we can do better than pick on Nadia, we already know she is clueless. Let's rise to a greater place as humans.


will pattison   February 20th, 2009 5:12 am ET

wow. joy behar really can't stand it that someone doesn't see things the way she does. hilarious!


Dr. Neil   February 20th, 2009 5:19 am ET

Don't ever let Joy Behar ever interview again...The problem is she thinks she's the one being interviewed and talks too much. I had to turn this interview off half way because it was so bad. I'm sorry Larry was off that night as his interview with Coulter would have been worth watching....


John   February 20th, 2009 5:29 am ET

I hyst think this woman is from another planet and probably sick. Can I ask: When was the last time, ann, that you checked into an hospital?

You talk trash!


Debbie   February 20th, 2009 5:29 am ET

I like Ann. She is smart.


ulf gjerdingen   February 20th, 2009 5:30 am ET

watching LK right now. coulter’s is getting her ass spanked. it's so funny. she's the new republicans young girls recruiter? hillarious and quite scary.


Martin Thomas   February 20th, 2009 5:31 am ET

Ann Coulter is right an almost every issues. She stays focused on the true issues. We need more people supporting her positions.


farshad   February 20th, 2009 5:32 am ET

joy behar was an AMAZING guest host tonight. she asked really great questions. please bring her back.


Vesela   February 20th, 2009 5:33 am ET

Oh my god, 98% of prison inmates shop at Wall-Mart! Let's burn it!!


eskimo   February 20th, 2009 5:35 am ET

DUDE.....

Ann coulter please it would help the world if you just

KEPT quiet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its realy sad that people like Ann coulter and her fellow supporters feel its good for them to criticize innocent women who lost there husbands and wont see there fathers anymore....
Its sad that she would Even blame those single mothers who are trying to make a living for there children.

Ann Coulter PLEASE SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!


Brenda Stander   February 20th, 2009 5:36 am ET

I totally agree with Mary from California. I can't believe how rude and aggressive the interviewer was! Shocking! Ann did not get a chance to answer questions properly or discuss her book, but behaved herself like the real lady. She is. very stylish and beautiful too! I have never heard about her as I'm not American, but I will buy her book out of principle. Larry should never allow such rude and foul moth people to sit in for him again.


Polly Scott   February 20th, 2009 5:39 am ET

I "know" about Ann Coulter, but haven't really spent any time listening to her before. I thumbed through her books and read a few things from her, but I never saw her "live." She comes across as a phony, who is pulling info from her very biased brain, rather than truly giving thought and weight to real issues. She even said as much, when discussing the single mom issue, but stating " that's looking at it from the other side." Yes! There are always at least 2 sides to every story or problem. As long as she, and others like her, fail to look at all the dimensions of a problem, it won't get solved. Sometimes, you have to try things you don't necessarily entirely agree with in order to solve a problem. We single moms know that all too well!! You don't catch any flies with honey and you don't solve any problems by being stubbornly tied to old ideas or ideas that haven't worked.

Finally, I raised 2 children as a single mom–one with Autism. My children are grown now and working hard to participate in their communities and their world. My daughter is a 2nd Lt. in the US Air Force. My son is finished post-high school. We don't have any electric cars or preconceived notions about the world, but one thing I think we could probably all agree on is that Ann Coulter is an ungly person–specifically on the inside. She lacks humility, grace and the ability to compromise, all things I taught (by myself) to my children. I'm sure by her body language, she thinks she's pretty hot–in fact she indicated as much on the show ("I'm very popular") and the hair flips and giggles after she insults groups of people indicate she thinks a lot of herself (not to mention the low cut dresses on her book covers???) She's attractive on the outside. Too bad the minute she opens her mouth, she comes off as a rough, defensive, angry, unsatisfied and miserable critic with nothing to add in terms of becoming part of the solution.


farshad   February 20th, 2009 5:42 am ET

correction on another one of ann coulter's untruths: japan has been in an economic mess for over a decade precisely because they did not have the political guts to implement a stimulus package like the obama administration is doing.

ann: do not lie!


adam   February 20th, 2009 5:46 am ET

Hello,
I am very prouf of Joy Behar. I think Larry must do the same. I spend for the forst time ONE HOUR to look the show. She was excellent!!!

Thanks Joy Behar.


will pattison   February 20th, 2009 5:56 am ET

i think the duggars are a great example of financial discipline and responsibility, and they should be an inspiration to all the idiots who've gotten themselves into a bad fix by stupid spending.

having said that, anyone who has more than 3 or 4 kids is just plain selfish. the fact they did it one at a time instead of 8 at once doesn't absolve them of that fact. seriously, people...adding more people to the population isn't helping!


Donald   February 20th, 2009 6:04 am ET

I can only take a few minutes of Ms. Coulter without shutting her off. She probably was never taught basic manners and courtesy as a child. I can't understand her being on the same tour with Bill Maher or how they could be friends. Joy Behar knows a witch when she sees one.


Prof Bob   February 20th, 2009 6:09 am ET

The Duans praise God for their 18 children. That is God based morality. I haven't seen anything on society based morality which requires fewer children to reduce global warming, poverty, the scarcity of fresh water, etc. Dr. Pimintel, who has done more academic work on this subject than anyone. He says if we want maximum population living at European-American technology levels the max is 1 to 2 billion, not the 7 billion we have now.
Some academics who are aware of the population crisis should be guests.


Claudia   February 20th, 2009 7:07 am ET

Just wanted to say that when I found out that Ann Coulter was going to be on the show I started to turn it off, but then I saw that Joy was interviewing her and decided to watch. Joy did a GREAT job of showing the unreasonable, "right wing" egotist for what she really is. How people can buy her books is beyond me, but then she pointed out that Rush has millions of listeners so.........


shems   February 20th, 2009 7:19 am ET

I don't like Ann Coulter, but... Who is this Joy Behar person, and why is she doing interviews? She is DREADFUL – Coulter at the other end of the spectrum. What a complete waste of time.


Alexis   February 20th, 2009 7:40 am ET

I think Ann Coulter is anti-American & wouldn't give her the time of day. However one suggestion: how about limiting the number of comments from each person? Ryan from Texas taxed my patience more than Ann! Isn't anyone monitoring the emails? He's not the only one w/an opinion. Please! Shut him off.

Ann Coulter brags her books are on the best sellers lists, please!!! Probably the Republican party are buying up 3/4's of her books and then writing them off in taxes and then using it in place of firewood. She wants to be controversial what a surprise!!! More controversial more attention you draw with the hungry blood thirsty entertainment media looking for a quick story for ratings, instead of giving attention to those who are true experts and real talents.

As for the Duggars here's a plan, Jim Bob get a vasectomy, or MIchelle you can get your tubes tide. Birth control what an idea!!!!God will forgive you at this point. Come on get real and stop thinking God wants you to have all those children, that's delusional!!! So not far off from Suleman in that regard. I think they the Duggars need psychiatric evaluation as well. If God didn't want us to come up with birth control methods he would of stopped us from developing the idea. You're living in the dark ages to think otherwise!!! That should be considered wife abuse to have that many children.

Loved the interview between Joy Bayheart and Ann Whatshername.... Please have Joy on again she was excellent... I loved it when Joy said more then once to Ann Whatshername "what does that mean"... It was prefection, Joy was Great, because as a person with a brain Ann Whatshername doesn't make any logical sense and her facts are beyond understanding.


DeeAnn   February 20th, 2009 8:08 am ET

I saw the Behar and Coulter interview??? Behar was rude, twisted Ann's words and looked like the vicious and uniformed woman that she is.


myra   February 20th, 2009 8:14 am ET

I tried to post a response to Ann Coulter from your neighbour nation, Canada. I surmise it was not appropriate in content because it's not posted. When I heard her use the statistic that 80 per cent of incarcerated people were the offspring of single mothers, as a single mother, I listened. She did not address the fact that the majority of inmates in the U.S. are black or that many fathers abdicate their responsibilities and she did not address gender wage and salary inequities, probably because she's fortunate enough to have qualified as a lawyer. She sells simple solutions to complex issues and capitalizes on fear, bigotry and ethnocentricism. Even responding on this blog adds to her commerce. I can't believe people pay for this person's opinion.


Blinders Removed   February 20th, 2009 8:36 am ET

Please, Larry. I've watched your show for years but please stop with the Joy Behar. This woman is so hateful the hate shows thru every word she speaks and every expression on her face. Can't you find a more interesting and charming sub?


Enough   February 20th, 2009 8:40 am ET

Enough already with calling the octuplet mom "Octomom." This is disgusting "reporting."

Why aren't we placing the blame for her situation where it truly belongs–with the doctor. Just how did she pay for all these extremely expensive procedures? At all my doctor and dentist offices there is a sign clearly posted: "Payment Required At Time Of Service."

What's really going on with this doctor?


karen schellenberg   February 20th, 2009 8:42 am ET

I watched Joy spar with Anne Coulter tonite. Larry please please do not have Joy sit in for you again. I thought that guests were invited to express their opinion. Why invite as them on if you are going to interrupt them, berate them, and not let them speak? Joy was bad. I do not especially like Anne or agree with her views, but she conducted herself with some semblance of class. Joy was left looking like a rebellious teenager arguing something she wasn't comfortable with. I'm surprised she wasn't chewing gum. She does better on The View when she has Whoopi, Sherry, and Barbara to back her up. Joy – were the interruptions and shrill voice a result of your fear of Anne? I don't agree with her on much, but she certainly is a lot more intelligent than Joy, which was obvious tonite. If Joy hosts again I will not be watching. Too painful to watch.


kim   February 20th, 2009 9:19 am ET

Why does it seem like alot of right wingers have ADHD? I really didn't know anything about Ann Coulter before tonight. I am a writer and a reader but I have never read anything by this woman. I don't think it is single mothers that have ruined this country, this country is reaping the effects of karma because this country was founded on greed.
This woman and her uneducated, obnoxious and heartless statements are why other countries continue to laugh at us.
I think her problem is that she speaks without thinking first.......again maybe ritalin?

Grant Butler   February 20th, 2009 9:26 am ET

I agree with the comments that Joy is negative towards any show she shows up on. Why would CNN let her walk on to Larrys show and act like the idiot she does on the view?

I too skip any show that Joy will be on in the future unless she learns to keep her attitude in check.


Steven Wagner   February 20th, 2009 9:27 am ET

I think Joy was extremenly unprofessional and rude to Ann Colter. However, Ann handled her well. It is amazaing how bias and closed mined Joy is. She needs to get out of New York more because there is a world out there that does not agreen with her politics. Thank goodness for Ann Colter and others like her. And yes, It is painful to accept, but Ann tells it like it is. She is not politically correct and Joy just can't handle it. I'm sure Larry would have done a much more professional interview. Keep up the good work Ann!!!


Mike, FL   February 20th, 2009 9:36 am ET

Larry, who was that lady in your chair last night? Obviously she didn’t want the job. That is the kind of help you get when take out an ad in a newspaper. I was embarrassed for her and your show.


jackie   February 20th, 2009 9:44 am ET

Larry-If you must take a vacation, PLEASE find someone else to fill in as host!! What an embarrassing "interview" with Ann Coulter...sounded more like a catfight. Joy, the only thing worse that a fool is an angry fool-check yourself-you looked like an idiot last night.


Renae   February 20th, 2009 9:49 am ET

I don't know why anyone would even bother to interview her. She has no substance to anything she's saying on any interview I've seen. She's off the mark, smart-alecky, self absorbed and full of antics. Where's the substance? She thinks she's loved because her books sells .. maybe popular, but, that's not loved. And furthermore, Limbaugh's 20 million listeners is nothing compared to the number of people who's not listening just like the numbers of those who will haven't and will not buy her books. To compare him to Oprah is like comparing apples and coconuts. Give me a break!!


Allison, AL   February 20th, 2009 10:11 am ET

we love you joy! great job last night. how did you manage to sit so close to coulter and not strangler her??? thats remarkable!!!!! hope to see joy subbing for larry more often.


Rio Rancho, NM   February 20th, 2009 10:27 am ET

Why have Coulter on? She's pathetic. She's unAmerican and close enough for me to be a "dictator" type conservative. Joy, as usual, you did great even though I did notice you tapping your pencil a few times.


Sharon Dietz   February 20th, 2009 10:29 am ET

Joy Behar is a hateful woman, she has said offensive things against catholics, Christians, and the United States. I can't understand why she would be asked to host for Larry King. CNN has always been liberal but to elevate a person like Behar to such a platform is a disgrace.


jmcdermott   February 20th, 2009 10:39 am ET

Anne how about the guys that threw the pie into yr face, think they hate you.


vicki   February 20th, 2009 11:34 am ET

Larry,

There are millions of people out there better suited to fill your chair. Please don't ask Joy to do it again! I am not a fan of Ann C. either but Joy acted like a spoiled teenage brat that wasn't getting her way. The way she talked was a discrace to your show. To talk about sex and vibrators the way she did was wrong, rude and CLASSLESS. Maybe next time invite Miss Piggy to fill your chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.


Mike, FL   February 20th, 2009 11:57 am ET

Ohhhhhh, she is from The View. An infomercial that airs while most of America is at work. Not quite ready for prime time.


Linda Witwer   February 20th, 2009 12:19 pm ET

Was this an interview or a debate?Joy B. interrupted Ann C. continually and criticized almost every answer Ann contributed! This is why I and all my friends stopped watching "The View". I was interested in hearing all about Ann's new book and her opinions on various issues facing our country, but all I heard were Joy's infamous remarks and her ridiculous outbursts. Please allow your guests to express their views without slamming them on T.V. and being disrespectful. This was not your interview, Joy, and all of America has heard your opinions too many times already.I have always enjoyed your jokes and comments, but you went too far AGAIN.
Thank you,
L. Witwer


socal jim   February 20th, 2009 2:40 pm ET

Joy Behar was embarrassing last night, she was completely out-matched, overwhelmed and unprofessional. She turned an interview into a personal attack based upon her own beliefs, and was made to look incredibly inept by Ann Coulter.

Why does Joy Behar think she can ask a question, then put words into the interviewee's mouth, and then smirk/frown/laugh the response off in a smug way?

It was CLEAR to anyone with eyes and ears last night that Joy Behar got completely schooled. She seemed unprepared, unintelligent and completely over matched.


Barbara   February 20th, 2009 3:17 pm ET

Joy! I love you! You did great with that MEAN Ann Coulter...Thanks Larry for letting Joy have a go at Coulter. Ann had to say she had sold several books...hmmm...as if she doesn't know Mr. Rupert bought up a few million to make her LOOK like she was a book seller.. phttttttt


Tom Heim   February 20th, 2009 4:23 pm ET

I realize that CNN leans left and embraces socialism for America. Larry King is also one that sides to the left. But to have pitbull (yes the dog reference is accurate) Behar filling in for the even keeled King destroys credibility & quite frankly drives viewers away.

Behar condems those she views as right-wing. Problem is she is as left as one can get. Her demeanor is an attacking, righteous one that demeans her guests – simply because the guest has a different viewpoint. (Hey Joy – if you are going to ask a question, let the guest answer – even if you do not agree with it.) Funny how Behar & other liberals scream about diversity – when they exhibit NONE towards those that disagree with them.

Yes that makes Behar a VERY unattractive, gravity challenged hypocrit, who was certainly put in her place by a more intelligent Coulter.

CNN & Larry – if you want higher ratings – get rid of Behar & other INTOLERANT liberals on CNN.


Lisa W AR   February 20th, 2009 4:43 pm ET

Larry,
I love your show, but please never allow Joy to host it again. She was rude and unprofessional to Ann Coulter. I wanted to hear what Ann had to say, but Joy was venemous and talked to much. Joy is such an superficial person with no depth and definitely not prime time material. For example, she asked Ann if she would go out the George Clooney. When Ann said no, Joy acted like Ann was in disbelief. Joy, there is more to someone that their physical appearance. (I agree with Ann and would not date George Clooney, based on who he is and his politics.) Also, Ann is not "politically correct", but does tell it like it is on many issues. To be honest with you I am really sick of politically correctness anyway. You know many people can justify their sins because sin is the "status Quo". When Ann points out their sin, she makes many people uncomfortable, including Joy. Joy wanted to go after Ann's jugular view, but Ann was ready for her. Good Job Ann!!!


m. walnite   February 20th, 2009 5:58 pm ET

JOYLESS behar is truly ignorant of any facts. she clearly did not listen to anything that Ann said.she just spews her hatespeech as she uses the view to do. she is a useful idiot for the left who do not really care about anyone but themselves. she had the gaul to chide an invited guest with another best selling book to hurry up, it's only an hour show!! joy was the one who monopolized the airtime with inappropriate insults and irrational responses. she can't even keep track of her own silly questions. please don't have her on again. it is a good thing ann speaks fast or we would have only heard shrill behar rants.


Philip Johnson   February 20th, 2009 6:25 pm ET

Regarding the heated interview with Ann Coulter the Venomous Right Wing sound box.... She absolutely went off on Single Moms, yesterday during her visit with Joy. I am assuming that she is anti-abortion.
If she doesn't like abortions and she is against single mom's, aren't these two beliefs at odds with one another?
I really wish Joy had brought this up. It would have been amusing at best to see Ann give us some Sarah Palin jiberish to justify how she justifies both.
Comments Please


Mary Ann   February 20th, 2009 7:13 pm ET

Joy Behar is no mental match for Ann Coulter. Behar attempted to put Coutler on the defensive over and over unsuccessfully. Behar interrupted the guest every few seconds and used this as a ploy to cover her lack of knowledge in the areas "being discussed." Behar kept looking down at her notes and it was obvious to the viewer that she was out of Ann Coulter's intellectual league. This interview was erratic in its approach and seemed like a personal attack on the guest and her views. Whether or not an individual is an Ann Coulter fan does not matter. The viewer was ill-served by the host last night. Behar did not have a command of the topics, was extremely rude and delivered nothing of value. This so-called interview was a disservice to Ann Coulter and a disappointment to Lary King's viewers.


Jeannie   February 21st, 2009 2:45 am ET

Mary Ann: "Joy Behar is no mental match for Ann Coulter." You are right. Ann Coulter seems to be fixated on Hitler. Everywhere she goes she mentions Mein Kampf. Her continual use of pro-Aryan and anti-Semitic language makes one wonder whether she feels that she's fighting her own internal Mein Kampf (translated as "My Battle") as an outsider American. Rather than spew hate at people, perhaps she should unburden herself on the couch with a psychoanalysis of the Freudian school.


Jeannie   February 21st, 2009 5:32 am ET

will pattison: "i think the duggars are a great example of financial discipline and responsibility,..." Because women's role are that of breeders and bankers are of God.


Jeannie   February 21st, 2009 5:46 am ET

"...she was out of Ann Coulter’s intellectual league" You are right. Joy is an Italian Brooklynite, Ann is a privileged dilettante from Connecticut and who was a member of the Delta Gamma national women's fraternity. The last thing she had to defend was the choice of designer she wore to her debutante ball. Tha'ts her true Mein Kampf.


Rob C.   February 21st, 2009 5:54 am ET

I cant stand Ann Coulter, She is a hate filled closet case that by the looks of that picture up there like to party Whitney style!


Rob C.   February 21st, 2009 6:00 am ET

Ann Coulter says way worse than what I just said. cmon moderator


nora   February 21st, 2009 8:47 am ET

Jeannie, I wonder what is great about spending your life, looong life, deciding between meatballs or lasagna for dinner and writing about poopoo ca-ca (something like that?). I believe that is Joy's contribution to this world. Interesting that now she convinced you she can do better than that. I like Joy's sense of humor, she always makes me laugh, even when pretending to be an interviewer. She should stay in comedy.


G-Mom   February 21st, 2009 9:34 am ET

Ann says 20 million people listen to her man, Rush. On the View they said that 20 million people report living in sexless marriages. Coincidence, I think not... lol

Watching Ann Coulter is like watching a train wreck. It's gross, it's messy, it makes you want to lose your cookies, but you can't turn away. You simply can't believe that much brain damage can get that much attention.

Joy, I couldn't believe it when you ladies had her on the View. You're tongue must be hurting from biting it during the interviews.


Davina Lady   February 21st, 2009 10:49 am ET

Once again I am never suprised by the "peace loving" liberal response with their hateful words. I am a conservative who watches Larry King so that I can be objective and informed by trying to understsand both sides. I too was appalled by the interview with Ann but I was appalled at the lack of class shown by Joy during the interview. She was not interviewing, she was twisting words to suit her own agenda. Unfortunately, this very interview and the response to it has made it so that I will not watch Larry King anymore. Larry, I am sorry, but if this blog represents your viewers then I cant support that. Joy looked unprepared. As someone who spends a great deal of time reading about current events, it was obvious that Joy has no knowledge about the topics in which she was trying to conduct an interview. Like the "peace loving' liberals, I found myself getting angry as well. This is what is wrong with the country. You can't have a different opinion about President Obama without being attacked by a "peace loving" liberal. Freedom is lost and I am disappointed in the American people and their willingness to speak out about issues they obviously know nothing about. The liberals are one sided and have the nerve to call conservatives hypocrites and hate mongers. Joy is a great example of an angry, uninformed and one sided hate monger. This was not a discussion or an iinterview. This was appalling. Joy is at the top of my list of people that I disrespect. Ann Coulter, I want you to know that you killed Joy in this interview. Unlike the majority of the people responding to this blog, I know what is going on and it was obvious that you won this DEBATE. I will buy the book and unlike Joy, I will read it. Larry, I am disappointed and maybe if you take Joy off of your "fill in" list, I may continue watching. But for now, you just lost a viewer.


Dragon7   February 21st, 2009 5:13 pm ET

I was amazed at Ms Coutler's response to the single mom issue...Why not blame the men who impregnate them..and she says..they are not celebrated. What kind of lame answer is that. It takes two to make a baby and to just blame the woman smacks of sexism and is all the more repulsive coming from a woman. Last i saw the only two teen single moms I have seen being celebrated are jamie Lynn Spears and Bristol Palin...Both teens and given unfair treatment by the conservative media..Bill O'reilly blasted Jamie Spears parents for being irresponsible in raising their daughter, while Bristol its a private family matter and the media should leave them alone..both 17 and pregnant..what is the difference.
The other thing that appalled me was your inclusion of the Duggars as models for large families. These people are so socially irresponsible. They may shop second hand, but they still operate 7 vehicles. Their huge family takes up precious resources and polutes period. Two biological children in this day and age should be enough.. Want more, than adopt. These people are no model of family values. As so called stewards of god's planet they fail miserably.. they just like to have sex with not birth control and say its god's will.They selfishly satisfy their wants and cloak it in religion. Shame on them and shame on you for giving them more publicity


Ratu   February 22nd, 2009 6:47 am ET

well done Joy. Next time loonies ask you they have 20 mill listeners, just them THEN WHY DID THEY LOSE THE ELECTION IN A LANDSLIDE? what their listeners turned around and voted for Obama and the Dems. Truth is they are in the minority as majority of the Amercicans choose to get their news from non-biased sources unlike the reublican news channel (Limpball + Fox). They are in the minority and if they behave like did last 8 and keep listening to their leader Limpball, they will die.


Sheryl   February 23rd, 2009 3:30 am ET

I will not be watching Larry King anymore. I can't stand his phony laugh and the way he kisses up to liberals. If Joy Behar is the best he can come up with as a substitute host – forget it. I can't stand to watch the View either. I don't know who is more obnoxious – Joy, Whoopi, or Barbara. I saw excerpts from the View and how disrespectful they were to the McCains and how they kissed up to the Obamas. The disrespect Joy showed Ann was exactly what I expected. Maybe if Joy shut her mouth long enough and listened to someone else's point of view, she wouldn't be so ignorant.


G.Kincheloe   March 1st, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I recently blogged a well written comment concerning the interview with Ann Coulter and was immediately told that my comment was "under review." A week plus later, my comment still does not appear on the blog and is probably one of the few that does not, because of what I said about Coulter, Limbaugh and the conservative views portrayed in the media. Apparently I hit the nail on the head with my commentary and have figured out what the powers that be don't want the listenership to know and that is that Coulter and the rest of the pack, are commodities...That's right, Dorothy!... They are for sale. And where there is a sale, some one has to lose money in order for someone to make money.This includes the commodity of saying absolutely anything and then packaging it for sale, regardless of the damage it causes. Commentary is a business and where Coulter's following is concerned, they have been scammed by a well crafted illusion of conservativism. Step back, analyze carefully and then consider what she is saying and how she is saying it. Then add up the dollars the listenerdhip is losing by buying into the illusion.


G.Kincheloe   March 1st, 2009 11:50 pm ET

...You see, Dorothy...It doesn't matter what you sell... or how and why you sell it ... just that you sell it... and that, at the end of the day.... you laugh orgasmically at the financial reports and the thought of packaging and selling people what they want to hear anyway. Someone has gotta do it...So it might as well be you...There is a buyer for everything... They have just gotta be made to believe...It doesn't matter what you believe in...only that other people believe that you believe...Do not waste time reinventing the wheel...or the horrific squeaking noise that occurs in its history. But know this fact, it always gets oiled...even if it oils itself.


Betty from NJ   March 2nd, 2009 1:14 am ET

I wish people would listen and not jump all over Ann for saying that single mothers are a problem in America. Ann stated that she is not talking about divorcees or widows or responsible people who work and take good care of their children.. There are too many women who have children only to fatten their welfare check and take these poor little babies home to the ghettos where they will face a hopeless future. They will be subjected to gangs, drugs, shootings, etc. It just perpetuates the cycle and soon there will be more people on welfare than ever before. Welfare recipients should be encouraged to limit their number of children just like responsible working people do. We cannot afford to raise more than two children and provide for their needs because we are working to support the non-working who take advantage of the welfare and social security system!

Joy is obnoxious and a terrible host! I read most of the posts and it appears that at least 90 percent of the writers do not want Joy to sub for Larry again! There must be someone else that can fill in and do a more intelligent interview!


Judith Smith   May 1st, 2009 9:44 pm ET

it is apparent that some people like to hear and smell their own farts... ann coulter is the butt-hole and the crap that shoots/seeps/oozes/exits out of her mouth is the king of all farts...


Betty from NJ   May 1st, 2009 10:03 pm ET

When Larry announced last night that Joy would be on, I didn't even turn the show on tonight. Joy is so obnoxious, she doesn't listen to anyone else's opionion. Why would Larry have her as an interviewer? She only wants to spout her own opinions and feels that anyone who doesn't agree must be stupid! Please, no more Joy!!
