Did you know that O'Reilly sucks?
Yesterday I was trying to find my local am public radio station on an old radio whose dial bears little resemblance to reality. I paused on a station for a mere ten seconds and caught this exchange:
[Little old lady, obvious concern in her voice] But what I want to know is, is it true that Obama was sworn into the congress on the (gasp) Koran?
[Radio guy] Oh, I think there's some islamic in him somewhere back. But you know this is the kind of smear job the left likes to do. Likes to bring up these things and spread things.
[Me, realizing the asshat is O'Reilly] *click*
I don't know how people can listen to any of these frightwingers for any length of time at all. A mere ten seconds and I was steamed. First - O'Reilly knows full well that Barack Obama is a practicing christian and that it was Mike Ellison from Minnesota who considered using a Koran in his swearing-in picture - but not for his swearing in because no congressperson is sworn in on anything. And second, somehow O'Reilly manages to make a frightie trope all the fault of the left when it bears no relation to anything the left has ever done to any candidate on any side of the aisle ever.
You know when people say they don't wish any ill on someone with whom they disagree? I am not one of those people. I hope Bill O'Reilly is found expired in a two bit whore house with a falafel in his nethers.
