Joy Behar flipped out on The View yesterday, frothing over a Sharron Angle immigration ad that played during the break. Behar called the ad a “Hitler Youth commercial,” and things went downhill from there, according to Politics Daily. “I’d like to see her do this ad in the South Bronx,” Behar said. “‘Come here, bitch! Come to New York and do it!”

When Elisabeth Hasselbeck said that the girls would all be praying for Angle, Behar cried, “I’m not praying for her! She’s going to hell, this bitch!” You can see the ad that set Behar off above. It is “a visual anthology of every stereotype of Mexican youth,” writes Adam Hanft of Salon, and “so over-the-top that it crashes into parody.” But he notes that Angle, like Behar, is an entertainer, and that she, like Behar, used shock and stereotypes to make her point.
