Roy Sekoff Compares VP F-Bombs: Biden's 'A Lot Better' Than Cheney's

Huffpost editor Roy Sekoff joined David Frum, a former Bush speechwriter, on "The Joy Behar Show" Tuesday to discuss consequences for Democrats and Republicans in the wake of health care reform's passage.

Sekoff began by telling Joy that Vice President Joe Biden's use of the word "fuck" Tuesday was "a lot better" than former Vice President Dick Cheney's use of the word. In 2004 in the Senate, Cheney swore at Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).

Sekoff told Behar that he believes that Republicans' anti-reform stance might hurt the party in November elections. "You know, i think there's going to definitely be some blowback when people go 'Wait a minute. This isn't socialism. This isn't the govenrnment taking over my health care and in fact, I kind of like some elements of this."

Sekoff said that the GOP's embrace of tea party protesters could also hurt the party. "There's always been a fringe element in any party. But the lunatics have now taken over the asylum. We're seeing this kind of inflammatory rhetoric coming from the leaders. We have John Boehner saying that it's gonna be armageddon. I mean, that's like the little boy who cried Wolf Blitzer."
