Bill "Sore Loser" O'Reilly 4: This is Bull--BLANK!

Article by Garrett Will
n Tuesday, March 5th, 2013, O'Reilly got into a spat for the books with frequent guest Alan Colmes. The talking points memo preceding that spat put forth the notion that President Obama isn't declaring any specific federal spending cuts and that this is hurting the country. Never mind that Medicare & Medicaid, both federal programs, are going to incur cutbacks as part of a bid to lower the deficit and all that noise. Those are, contrary to what the old man wants you to believe, specific programs, so you'd think a reasonable guy would accept them as answers.

Haha! Think again, bub, 'cause this is Bill O'Reilly we're talking about! You are bound to run into more heated spin and bullshit on The O'Reilly Factor than perhaps any other program on cable television.

A brief synopsis: Alan Colmes, former co-host of what used to be Hannity & Colmes (and now is the sole front of Sean Hannity's method of torturing his audience with B.S.), and Monica Crowley who is of little importance in any medium (also happens to be Colmes' sister-in-law, so their usual parity may be a coincidence) were guests to discuss the TPM. Since Colmes is, or at least was Fox News' resident Liberal, O'Reilly tasked Colmes with providing backup for the President. When O'Reilly alleged that Obama only cares about politics at this point, and doesn't care about making drastic changes to (possibly) point the country in the right direction, Colmes called him out. And then this exchange happens:

  O'Reilly: "Give me one damned program he said he'd cut."
Colmes: "He's offered cuts in Medicare and entitlements."
O'Reilly: "You are lying here!"
Colmes: "Don't call me a liar! We can have a disagreement without you calling me a liar."
O'Reilly: "This is why I'm calling you a liar - give me one program he said he'd cut."
Colmes: "He would cut Medicare and Medicaid."
O'Reilly: "That's not a specific program; you can't give me one example of any federal program he said he would cut. This is bull-blank! I apologize to you, Colmes, I shouldn't have used the word 'liar.' But you haven't put forth anything he would do. The guy you revere refuses to say anything specific, but you're buying the con."

Whoa! Such a passionate melee of loudness and thinly-veiled rage!

The next day, useless idiot Kirsten Powers (who had an infamous spat with Megyn Kelly on her program about the NBP Voter Intimidation issue a few years back) was on to talk about, you guessed it, that argument with Colmes the previous night. In a way, the discussion was a full-on resumption of that same flurry of faux righteous indignation on Tuesday.

Kirsten fired back with evidence of the federal spending cuts that Obama will be making (which Alan Colmes had touched upon, as much as he could when you consider the circumstances, the night previously), but O'Reilly's a living, breathing mirror and would not have it. The stubborn O'Reilly refused to listen to reason, and Powers said to Bill:

You need to admit you are wrong. You are wrong about this and now you're playing a game.

Hell, just watch the video below and you'll perhaps get a grasp of just how badly the old man needs R&R.

When presented with facts, O'Reilly is implacable. He'll interrupt you at every turn and if you push him so far, he'll threaten to cut your mike! Well, he doesn't quite do that anymore, but one could hope.

Take your meds, Bill, and relax. It's okay to be wrong here and there. It's a little thing called 'humility' that allows for enlightened introspection. I know, I know, you're not quite capable of any of that, but again, one could hope.

have your say
