Joy Behar Pursues Sarah Palin
Comic and "The View" co-host Joy Behar wants Sarah Palin on her new HLN talk show.
"I can understand why you would want Sarah Palin on. Why would Sarah Palin want to come on your show?" One critic asked her at Summer TV Press Tour 2009.
"Well, I don't know. I'll ask you. Why do you think?" Behar responded. The old answer-a- question-you -don't- want- to- answer- with- a -question.
Always a bad idea at the press tour.
"But seriously, why would she want to come on to your show as opposed to somebody else's?" the critic persevered.
"Well, I think what you're driving at is that she would see me as an adversary, yes?
Another question answered with a question! Did someone explain to Behar the idea here is to get the press to write positive things about her new show?
"Do you think you would be offering her something that she couldn't get somewhere else?" the critic tried one more time.
"She might get a real conversation from another woman out of me," Behar finally answered. "You know, I'm not out to get her. I'm not trying to trap her," Behar said.
Nobody bought it. Here's why. Behar continued:
"I would like to ask the question, you know, 'When Katie Couric said to you "What do you read?" Why you couldn't come up with an answer?' The Moose Gazette ? Something! The woman couldn't come up with an answer....'I want to know why you couldn't think of something.' No one has asked her that. ....So I think what she would get is a real conversation from somebody who is generally interested in getting some answers out of her. And if she doesn't want to come, well, then we'll get her maid or something, or her babysitter."
