Math Challenged

(via Crooks and Liars) O’Reilly: That’s not a bad theory. But from dealing with the Obama White House, now, for almost, more than a year, I will tell you they are, uh, as every White House I’ve ever experienced, they’re arrogant, they’re arrogant. And they’re saying to themselves, ‘We’re not gonna let Lou Dobbs tell … Continue reading “Math Challenged”

Fscking Stupid

(via email)

Bill O’Reilly tries to explain why the life expectancy in Canada is higher than in the US:

Peter from Victoria, BC: “Has anyone noticed that life expectancy in Canada under our health system is higher than the USA?”

Bill O’Reilly: ” Well, that’s to be expected Peter, because we have 10 times as many people as you do. That translates to 10 times as many accidents, crimes, down the line.”

Liar or just stupid?

I say both.

O’Reilly falsely claimed Nixon never met with Mao

From the April 22 edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor:

O’REILLY: Ok, so the best thing that the president did in the past weekend?

COLMES: Well, he certainly had a wonderful moment with Hugo Chavez.

O’REILLY: That was wonderful.

COLMES: And now, I know that you people often think you — when I say “you people,” I mean, you — probably think that dictator DNA got off on him, and he’s going to come back and infect the United States because, look, he touched the guy.

O’REILLY: You like this thing?

COLMES: Do I like it?

O’REILLY: No, Miller didn’t like this whole thing.

COLMES: Oh, what a shock. What a shock that Miller didn’t like that.

O’REILLY: But you — you — what did you find worthy about it?

COLMES: Well, first of all, this shows — first of all, what do you, ignore the guy? When George W. Bush was at the UN and asked, “Will you ever — will you talk to Ahmadinejad if you’re in the same room?” “No, I won’t talk to him” — like a 5-year-old.

What do you, ignore somebody standing right next to you? Do we — because he touched him, put his hand on his shoulder, shook his hand? Do these people have a problem with Mao and Nixon? And of course, you worked for Richard Nixon. I mean, Nixon goes to China, do you have a problem with —

O’REILLY: It was Zhou and Nixon. Mao was not involved.

COLMES: There was —

O’REILLY: Yeah, Zhou.

COLMES: Did you have a problem with looking into Putin’s eyes and seeing his soul? Did you have a problem with any of the other —

O’REILLY: All right, but — OK, all of those are valid points, as long as you realize it was Zhou Enlai, not Mao Zedong.

COLMES: Zhou Enlai, OK.

O’REILLY: OK. Yeah, I don’t want to confuse you — the high school thing. But —

COLMES: Talk slowly and I think I’ll be OK.

Definitely not a picture of Nixon shaking hands with Mao

I find myself actually agreeing with Rush Limbaugh…

(via This Modern World) NYT Magazine puff piece on Limbaugh: At dinner the night before, Bill O’Reilly’s name came up, and Limbaugh expressed his opinion of the Fox cable king. He hadn’t been sure at the time that he wanted it on the record. But on second thought, “somebody’s got to say it,” he told … Continue reading “I find myself actually agreeing with Rush Limbaugh…”

Nexus of Assholery

(via War Room) Meanwhile, Fox’s Bill O’Reilly says he hopes to have Limbaugh on his show tonight to help him fight back against Media Matters and other “far-left media assassins” pushing the “phony soldiers” story. “We need to go on the counterattack to knock these people out,” he said. Nexus of Assholery: Rush Limbaugh and … Continue reading “Nexus of Assholery”
