Bill O’Reilly And The Grumpy Old Men

Ok, I just have to say it … Bill O’Reilly is a clueless misogynist dunce. Even my non-political husband noticed tonight that Bill invites on crochety old white men to sit around and belittle Sarah Palin while bringing on the brainy female commentators to discuss … yes, Weinergate. That’s not sexist … no sir.

Sarah Palin is the only female VP nominee in Republican party history, the first female governor of a rugged frontier state, a best-selling author and a news analyst who routinely brings huge ratings to FOX, a network that bills itself as “fair and balanced” and all Bill can do is create a monolithic echo chamber to trash her? Where’s the fairness and balance? How about bringing someone on who supports Palin or at least knows her record, a record that includes leaving her state with a $12 billion budget surplus? Bill wouldn’t know that. The only numbers he cares about are cooked polls that supposedly show Palin is beyond repair, and “toxic” to independents, the very independents who in a recent Ohio poll split evenly between Palin and Obama. Toxic? Hardly.

Here’s my response to Bill and his band of grumps, or as I like to call them, the Viagra Club.

Bill, you couldn’t handle Sarah when she was right in your face. On more than one occasion Sarah Palin has left you speechless, a modern miracle if ever there was one, shutting up the popinjay O’Reilly. She hurt your feelings last time when she told you in indirect terms to STFU. How dare she not allow you to interrupt her every utterance and spew your ignorance without being challenged!

And you would never dare to bring on Kate Obenshain or Tammy Bruce to counter your lame interviews with Brit (I voted for Hoover) Hume and Charles (I’m for all of Palin’s positions that she’s not smart enough to understand) Krauthammer. You couldn’t handle a strong,  intelligent, beautiful woman telling you the truth about Governor Palin — which is that she has more brains in her right pinkie toe than you have in your 6’4 inches of ego.

Bill … your time has past. Your “We’re looking out for you” schtick is not only stale, it’s non-sensical drivel. When you say “we” — who exactly is that? As you’re fond of asking others, do you have a mouse in your pocket? And do you even understand “the folks” you’re supposedly looking out for? Maybe instead of “looking out for the folks” you should try listening to them. They’re the ones fighting for this country in the Tea Party movement.

Moreover, when you say “Talking Points believes” what the FREAK are you talking about? A “Talking Points Memo” cannot believe anything. Are you suggesting to us that you have some kind of editorial board that comes up with the arrogant crap you spew? Are you comparing yourself to a freaking NEWSPAPER? And did no one inform you that there actually is another Talking Points Memo out there, and it’s a lefty website?

The O’Reilly Factor is past its prime. In a sane world Bill O’Reilly, his pet mouse, and the Viagra Club would be put out to pasture. Except he works for Fox, the network that has now become RINO central, leading the Stop Palin Express.

Oh, and one final thing … Might want to lay off harrassing Rep. Weiner for his sexual perversions, Bill. We younger folks who are not sliding into dementia actually remember when you yourself were accused of sexually harrassing a much younger staffer, and had to settle out of court. I’m not saying Weiner doesn’t deserve scrutiny, but are you the one to cast stones in his direction?

As a dirty old man, how about you  just stick to topics you understand … like 50s TV stars and Metamucil ads. Leave the heavy political lifting to people for whom the future is not just a talking point.
