“Geraldo To O’Reilly: Isn’t Rush Jealous Of Your Success?”
Geraldo and his aging mustache, Bernie, fluff Bill O’Reilly on Geraldo’s show, and O’Reilly, in typical self-serving fashion, responds by fluffing himself, arguing that the left is after him because he’s so damn effective at crushing them, while the right is after him because they’re jealous of his greatness and influence, of his “best-selling books” and his prime slot on FOX.
Also, his documented success with the ladies, where loofahs are concerned…
Look: O’Reilly and FOX have become in large part a joke to serious movement conservatives. FOX found a niche after 911 and it plays to that niche; and, largely because its the only game in town, many of its hosts have grown rich off the needs of half the population to hear at least some conservative opinion not routinely demonized..
And yet, that’s what FOX is more and more about: the Rove / RINO wing of the GOP is proclaiming itself the new, less strident “conservatives” and marking anyone to their right — which 50 years ago would have included JFK — extremists, fringe players, and Hobbits, unserious people who need to get out of the way and let the big boys run the party until such time as they’re told to go to the polls and vote for the latest “inevitable” candidate.
To which I say this, to O’Reilly, to Rove, to Geraldo, et al.: you’re over. That you don’t yet know it just speaks to your insulated arrogance.
Honestly, if Bill O’Reilly was on fire I wouldn’t piss on him. Though if there was a Bible about, I might try to put out the flames by thumping him with it. Just because I’d enjoy the irony.
Oh. And blah blah blah BIG OIL PROFITEERING!
