Sharron Angle Winning Nevada Race With Joy Behar's Help

Joy Behar Insults Sharron Angle; Angle Sends Flowers (Updated)

Joy Behar has apologized. "The View" regular said she "really shouldn't have" insulted Sharron Angle, the Nevada GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, and went on to say that she meant the insult as a term of endearment. "I reserve that word for people that I know and love," said Behar, after which point she proceeded to call all of her co-hosts her word-that-rhymes-with-itches.

Joy Behar, CNN host and a regular on "The View," called Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle a word that rhymes with "itch" on "The View" on Tuesday and said that Angle could "go to Hell."

On Wednesday, the ladies of "The View" reconvened, except this time Behar announced that the Senate challenger from Nevada had taken a dig at her. "This morning, I get these flowers from Sharron Angle," says Behar before pulling the card from her bra. "It says, 'Joy, raised $150,000 online yesterday. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Sharron Angle." Behar went on, claiming that the flowers were picked by illegal immigrants, and "they're not voting for you, [expletive]."

"You were so offensive to many people that they will raise money to whomever you disapprove of," host Barbara Walters responded. Walters admonished Behar, saying, "You can criticize as you do, it's your right...but I don't think you should tell anybody to go to Hell."

Behar walked her comments back slightly, but eventually took a final swipe at Angle: "Don't send me flowers, Sharron Angle. Put your money where your mouth is."
