Joy Behar, Narnia Numbskull

On Thursday’s edition of The View, Joy Behar displayed how little she knows Sarah Palin’s favorite authors. As they discussed Palin’s answer to Barbara Walters asking what she reads, and Walters said Palin reads C.S. Lewis for “divine inspiration,” Behar asked “Aren’t those children’s books?”
She wasn’t joking, but she obviously liked the idea that Palin wasn’t smart enough to read “adult books.” The Narnia books aren’t exactly Dr. Seuss. Behar isn’t educated enough to know about his classic works of nonfiction in Christian apologetics, like Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters. She can tell you all about Jersey Shore, but theology is not one of her hobbies:
Wait! Isn’t former Gov. Palin supposed to be the dumb one and Behar one of the smart ones? Even Whoopi Goldberg set Behar straight … puh-THEH-tic!
