the dueling duo at 9:00. Someone on the cable news networks has a great sense of humor it would seem.
I confess, I actually watch Sean Hannity, usually his repeat show at midnight EST. I find that a really good laugh helps me sleep better but now I’m in a terrible quandary, do I watch Hannity or Behar? What is a poor TV watcher to do?
I have watched Joy Behar on the View a little but never cared for much for morning shows. They generally waste an hour of my life I can never get back so I pay little attention. Now that she has been given an hour on CNN I thought there might be something actually worth listening to so last night it was Hannity versus Behar at my place.
Sean Hannity was, as always, predictable but entertaining. He does his usual spin on facts and statistics, lines up guests that support his view and manages to fire up the extreme Right and annoy the Left. Having seen that Hannity was on his usual track I excitedly switched to CNN to gain enlightenment from Joy Behar and her guests. My disappointment was overwhelming, I was really hoping for the same kind of fact twisting fanaticism that I got from Hannity but it was not to be. Joy Behar did exactly what I have come to expect from the Left, throw around childish insults about people, big deal, back to Hannity.
I really enjoy a good discussion no matter what the subject and it’s always fun to play devil’s advocate should the opportunity arise. I suppose this is why I listen to people like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others on the extreme Right. I just wish there were folks like that on the Left which is why I had high hopes for Joy Behar on CNN. When I switched to Behar’s show the topic under discussion was Sarah Palin, which was no big surprise, she seems to be a favorite for discussions on the Left. I was so disappointed when the conversation was exactly what I have come to expect from the Left, just a bunch of insults. I really wish they would twist facts and statistics like their counterparts on the Right to make things more interesting. I heard comments like, “Sarah Palin is just promoting her book which is strange since she has never read a book”, and, “… George Bush who never read a book…”, which is just what I have come to expect from the Left. I was never a fan of George Bush and I’m always happy to debate his presidency and policies. From what I understand of the past President he was actually very well read, perhaps not the greatest speaker, but well read nonetheless which makes these kind of comments just insults and lies. Come on Joy, you can do better, I’m sure of it. Joy Behar really should try and learn more them Hannity and Limbaugh, if she did, people like me might actually watch her show once in a while.
Listening to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and other Right wing characters is annoyingly frustrating and you want to jump in and straighten out the facts. Listening to Joy Behar, Janeane Garofalo and other Left wingers just makes you want to change the channel. Twisting facts and statistics to make your point is one thing, just calling everyone stupid and racist is childish. I guess I’ll be watching Sean Hannity again tonight.
