So don’t watch her show. Problem solved. JC Penney isn’t hiring her to talk about her personal life.

I honestly don’t get these people. And O’Reilly is right about a few things, IMHO. The light sentencing for child sex offenders and the fact that the big oil companies are simply gouging the consumer are two of them. His whole “war on Christmas/Christians” thing is beyond stupid, of course. How sad that that’s the issue championed by this year’s crop of GOP candidates…big oil is a more intelligent target. Oh well.

When ever anyone calls their group Million Man or Million Woman you can be fairly certain they’ve nowhere near that amount of people. It’s like calling yourself Fair and Balanced which you wouldn’t have to do if you actually WERE fair and balanced, or a million women, etc etc.

O’Reilly’s not as right wing as Hannity, Beck, etc. He can occasionally be reasonable and he’s being right on here. So kudos Bill even if you are often a jerk.

Not much I can add here except to thank Bill O’Reilly for calling a spade a spade. Tailgunner Joe is dead and gone, and blacklists too should be dead and gone.

There was a time, actually not all that long ago, when it was possible to find people on the Right offering rational opinions with some frequency. The decline appears to have coincided with Rush Limbaugh’s rise in popularity.

I remember how shocked I was when I first heard Rush. I had been a Republican since before I could vote. Despised Carter. Proudly voted for Ronald Reagan’s re-election (and voted for GB after that). In 1988 though, I decided to cast my vote for Clinton, because I felt we needed a fresh approach to leadership in the post Cold War world.

Of course I didn’t expect all other Republicans to feel the same way, but I was still stunned by the venomous, near-incoherent rage being directed at Clinton, and even his family, before he even took office, by my erstwhile political compatriots. And at the forefront of that tidal wave of hatred was Rush.

I was probably still pretty young and naive, but it seemed bizarre to me to see conservatives behaving this way. I associated conservatives with Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley Jr., George Will, and of course Reagan and Bush Sr., all gentlemen whether you agreed with their politics or not. But here was Rush throwing tantrums like an ill-mannered, spoiled, overgrown child who’d just soiled his diaper and had his candy taken away. It repelled me. Even when I turned pretty strongly back toward conservatism in the wake of 9/11 I would have nothing to do with Rush.

It’s pretty sad state of affairs when Bill O’Reilly is considered a step up in rational conservative discourse.
