Joy Behar hasn't been very nice to Sharron Angle—or has she? Though the View host clearly wasn't championing Angle when she called her a bitch two shows in a row, she seems to be doing wonders for Angle's coffers: Angle raked in $150,000 following Tuesday's show, sent flowers, got skewered again ... and raised more money, to the tune of $136,000 yesterday, reports the Washington Examiner.

Should that cash help propel Angle into office, she says she'll finally start chatting with the press. During an appearance on yesterday's Heidi Harris Show, Angle explained that she's been dodging the press because "the lamestream media or the left-leaning progressive press are really very much in Harry Reid's camp. They promote him as much as they can, and certainly that's not their intent when they come to interview me." When the radio host asked it it would be different after she got elected, Angle replied, "Well certainly. I'm hoping that as we get into this once I get elected senator that they will be much more civil and we will have a very civil discourse." Click here for more.
