(Newser) – Joy Behar broke out the big guns for the premiere of her new CNN interview show: Ann Coulter. The two sparred over the so-called “death panels” and Sarah Palin’s level of coherence before finding common ground: The UN should be moved to Libya. Highlights:

  • Sarah Palin “got audiences bigger than Obama,” Coulter said. “Well, she’s prettier,” Behar retorted. “She’s more coherent,” Coulter said, but Behar shut her down: “The woman cannot construct a sentence. Nobody understands what she’s talking about.”

  • “The government was paying doctors to have the ‘end of life discussion’ with old people,” Coulter said. “If you’re paying doctors, you’re giving them incentive to have the chit-chat. Democrats were embarrassed enough that they pulled it from the bill—and all because of one little Twitter by Sarah Palin. That’s a powerful woman.”
  • What about all those clothes Palin got during the campaign? “She never had them. She was wearing them on loan,” Coulter said, blaming the information leak on a jealous John McCain.
