CABE on January 31, 2008 at 3:32 PM

giving her the kiss of death, perhaps?

its vintage duh on January 31, 2008 at 3:33 PM

Ha, guy was being nice, she acts like she was being attacked by the Frankenstein monster.

Still…. dude.

John from OPFOR on January 31, 2008 at 3:34 PM

They all want Rush… They want his loyal listeners, they want his power, they wish they could hold a candle to him when it come to media.

cattekc on January 31, 2008 at 3:34 PM

Entertainers.. all the same…

bnelson44 on January 31, 2008 at 3:35 PM

Until it is confirmed indepently by multiple third parties I shall not believe!

srhoades on January 31, 2008 at 3:35 PM

Aaaah…. what a nice guy.

Mcguyver on January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

srhoades on January 31, 2008 at 3:35 PM

I do believe Rush confirmed it himself on his show today.

SouthernDem on January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

They wish they had Rush’s ability to surreptitiously place ads in his show for some water heater just when he gets a lot of publicity for hammering Johnny Mac.

LOL.

benrand on January 31, 2008 at 3:37 PM

It drive them nuts that Rush has more class and compassion than all of them combined……

subbottomfeeder on January 31, 2008 at 3:37 PM

Its like clucking chickens!

msipes on January 31, 2008 at 3:38 PM

If he’ll lower his standards enough to do that, I wonder if he’ll lower his standards to vote for McCain in Nov.

Hollowpoint on January 31, 2008 at 3:41 PM

SouthernDem on January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

Ah well, I haven’t listened to him yet. At least tell me that he was trying to bight her throat out ala Jack Baur.

srhoades on January 31, 2008 at 3:41 PM

My god, Rush class and compassion all in the same sentence.

DMeNTe on January 31, 2008 at 3:41 PM

Ok…so they used to work together and he “Gave me the best advise I have ever gotten”…..

So they were friendly….back then….

So, he should have believed that the friendliness was gone just because they don’t work together anymore?

Guess I’ll make sure I never nuzzle an old friend that may have gone far left whacko since I last saw them….

How juvenile….oh wait….thats redundant, she’s far left!!

Fuzzball on January 31, 2008 at 3:42 PM

A greeting. Not a crossing the aisle incident. Saying he supports her and will try to have his message reflect her’s as well would be crossing the aisle.

But greeting someone is awful? He is just being civil at best. I wouldn’t expect anything less.

geckomon on January 31, 2008 at 3:42 PM

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Dude. We’ve all seen his new chick. Is this the definition of going out for a hamburger when you’ve got a T-bone at home?

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on January 31, 2008 at 3:42 PM

I do believe Rush confirmed it himself on his show today.

SouthernDem on January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

Yes he did. Allah can you get the audio?

Brat on January 31, 2008 at 3:43 PM

SouthernDem on January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

He did. And he played Regis Philbin’s take as the third party witness to the event.

Apparently Joy Behar used to lead up to Rush back in the days when Rush did his show at WABC. They didn’t dig each other, he says, but he at least wanted to coexist peacefully.

eLarson on January 31, 2008 at 3:43 PM

Whatever, Rush is a RINO.

Vizzini on January 31, 2008 at 3:46 PM

Was there some place he could bathe after that?

Onager on January 31, 2008 at 3:47 PM

I must say this is disturbing to me. Behar is a lib psycho traitor, why would Rush go out of his way to be nice to her? This reminds me of the time he was shooting the shit with Bill Clinton at some restaurant. So are these huge issues we all discuss every day just talk.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU DO! FUCK THESE LIB TRAITORS! WE SHOULD NOT BE MAKING NICE WITH THEM. BEHAR’S ACCOUNT ON THE VIEW MAKES RUSH SOUND LIKE AN IDIOT!!

echosyst on January 31, 2008 at 3:54 PM

After she got fired (SHOCKA!) he told her to “be bold!”?

Rush…dude…why couldn’t you have just given her a fruitcake with a note that said “Hang in there!”

SuperCool on January 31, 2008 at 3:54 PM

He goes from Erin Burnett to Joy Behar?

Christ…

MadisonConservative on January 31, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Have you seen his lady-friend? He IS doing better.

AbaddonsReign on January 31, 2008 at 3:55 PM

echosyst on January 31, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Ah, civility.

SouthernDem on January 31, 2008 at 3:57 PM

Rush is a very tolerant person although liberals refuse to admit it.

Larraby on January 31, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Behar liked it. She admits he’s a nice guy at the end with the “best advice” part. She’s just mentioning it to get a rise out of her co-hosts and fill time, which is her job.

Weebork on January 31, 2008 at 3:59 PM

Imagine how Rush felt.

bloggless on January 31, 2008 at 4:03 PM

…a humungous person…

At first she thought it was her old pal Rosie comin’ for some sugar.

Brat on January 31, 2008 at 4:05 PM

I’ll bet that she was happy to run into Rush, as they worked together before and she complimented him by mentioning the advice thing.

She probably had goodbumps. The guy’s filthy rich, wouldn’t any woman feel tingles being near any guy with so much money? (Well… maybe that doesn’t always apply, e.g. George Soros, but I digress.)

Weebork on January 31, 2008 at 4:09 PM

It appears to me that Rush was practicing an old adage… “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!”

But then again Rush may have done this to get a rise out of these brain dead bimbos!

Confederate on January 31, 2008 at 4:17 PM

I wouldn’t nuzzle the crazy broads neck.Nope. No way.
Now, Liz Hasslebeck on the other hand…

Sefton on January 31, 2008 at 4:26 PM

Cackle Cackle.

Buttercup on January 31, 2008 at 4:34 PM

Ha, guy was being nice, she acts like she was being attacked by the Frankenstein monster.

If Rush went for her neck, he’s not Frankenstein’s monster, but (as I unleash my best East European accent) DRACULA!!

Bigfoot on January 31, 2008 at 4:34 PM

Hopefully, he passed on a virus

Kini on January 31, 2008 at 4:58 PM

They wish they had Rush’s ability to surreptitiously place ads in his show for some water heater just when he gets a lot of publicity for hammering Johnny Mac.

LOL.

benrand on January 31, 2008 at 3:37 PM

That’s been driving me nuts.

darii on January 31, 2008 at 5:14 PM

Was there some place he could bathe after that?

Onager on January 31, 2008 at 3:47 PM

If he were a cat, he might be licking something to get the taste out.

91Veteran on January 31, 2008 at 5:47 PM

Whatever, Rush is a RINO.
Vizzini on January 31, 2008 at 3:46 PM

Funny I’ve never heard Rush lay claim to being a Republican or affiliated with any party. I’ve just heard him say he’s conservative. Did I miss something?

Oldnuke on January 31, 2008 at 6:11 PM

I don’t have the sound clip but here is the transcript from Rush’s website.

Oldnuke on January 31, 2008 at 6:15 PM

Class as usual–separating the person, whom one can respect simply because he/she is a human, from the issue(s).

davidk on January 31, 2008 at 6:15 PM

WITH THEM. BEHAR’S ACCOUNT ON THE VIEW MAKES RUSH SOUND LIKE AN IDIOT!!
echosyst on January 31, 2008 at 3:54 PM

A lot of things make people look like fools. It’s one thing when someone else takes an event and distorts it to make someone look bad. Then there are those who do things that make themselves look foolish. Re-read your post above and reflect. If you actually heard Limbaugh’s account of his encounter with Bill Clinton I think you’d probably have a slightly different opinion. I repeat heard, you may have listened but you certainly didn’t hear. It’s obvious that you haven’t heard Limbaugh’s or for that matter Regis Philbin’s description of the event. You take the words of a self acknowleged

lib psycho traitor

and begin frothing at the mouth without haveing a clue as to what actually occurred. How mature.

Oldnuke on January 31, 2008 at 6:28 PM

Yest another example of how comfy people are on the right with those who disagree with them. Can you imagine Streisand doing that to Hannity!?… or Olby giving a big hug to Laura Ingraham, Tammy Bruce, or Ann Coulter??!!! HAHAHA. Lefties are such prissy hate-filled morons. Conservatives love everybody!

Gartrip on January 31, 2008 at 6:32 PM

Ahaha. Rush is a RINO? Based on what, his armored hide?

Seriously, that cracks me up.

If you want another take on this, Allah needs to dig up the clip from Regis’ show today. He says Joy was hot and bothered after Rush’s embrace.

NeoconNews.com on January 31, 2008 at 6:34 PM

Entertainers.. all the same…

bnelson44 on January 31, 2008 at 3:35 PM

Yup

dedalus on January 31, 2008 at 6:59 PM

I suppose me threatening the forfeiture of my free registration to HotAir isn’t enough to stop clips from The View, is it?

Chuck Schick on January 31, 2008 at 7:36 PM

I was kind of hoping Rush simply asked her to pull his finger. Hell, she’d probably do it!

radjah shelduck on January 31, 2008 at 7:52 PM

Lizzy! ::swoon::

Mallard T. Drake on January 31, 2008 at 8:29 PM

Oh for Pete’s sake! As if none of you have liberal friends. Get over yourselves! I have a feeling you people are reacting and not even watching the clip. She clearly says that they used to work together. Maybe she wasn’t a nasty left-wing pundit back in those days. None of us know the whole story. She’s obviously sensationalizing it a bit. Rush was prolly just doing it to be ironic. Can’t people have a personal life?

In other news…Joy Behar is in serious need of a larger mirror. Her “fat”, “huge” and “big guy” comments about Rush seem to be made without regard to her own size. She isn’t a spring chicken and she sure is no Elizabeth Hasselbeck (pre, post or even during pregnancy) figure-wise.

Levinite on February 1, 2008 at 12:27 AM

How does this piece of irrelevant fluff non-story deserve storage or bandwidth??
