View co-hosts Joy Behar and Barbara Walters on Monday immediately
politicized the killing of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. After
giving credit to Barack Obama for the successful strike, supposedly

Liberal comedienne Joy Behar played off a months-old comment by token conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Behar crowed, "As Elisabeth always says, they should just skip the next election."
As the crew sat next to guest Brian Ross, Hasselbeck refused to join in: "Wait a minute. I think it is insane to politicize this event right now and I refuse to partake in that."
