In Depth: How ICN can be gullible enough to fall for an April Fool’s joke…
Steve Young blogs about Bill O’Reilly’s plans to boycott Minnesota…
With most every legal option exhausted by Norm Coleman and Al Franken about ready to take his U.S Senate seat, Bill O’Reilly has made his position quite clear. Until Franken leaves the US Senate, he will be boycotting Minnesota.
Last night on The O’Reilly Factor…
Hi. I’m Bill O’Reilly. Thank you for watching tonight.
Tonight I will be doing something I never thought I would have to, but that’s only because the unimaginable has happened. Al Franken, the despicable smear merchant who I have cleverly referred to for years as Stuart Smiley will be officially seated in the U.S. Senate.
That is the subject of tonight’s Talking Point.
First of all, it’s important to know that I am a objective observer who has no dog in this fight, but when I see this great country being brought down to such a level that a vile gutternipe can be elected to the U.S. Senate, I can no longer sit on the sidelines.
COUGH COUGH COUGH…HURL!
Sorry…but I just couldn’t swallow that last paragraph. I tried…but it wouldn’t stay down.
“I am a objective observer who has no dog in this fight”…
Yeah…as objective as Lou Dobbs at an Hispanic Immigrants conference. The gall of some people. Say you’re objective while trashing Franken both above and below that sentence. Say you don’t have a dog in that fight when you tried to take Franken to court once for his book that was partly about you.
I don’t care whether Franken was right or O’Reilly was right in that feud. But let’s be honest here and call a spade a spade. O’Reilly hates Franken and he can’t be objective. This Minnesota boycott is as inane as the Donahue petition. And will be about as successful.
Update: Ok, it’s an April Fool’s joke. And I’m a fool. I should probably go on O’Reilly’s Pinheads list and deservedly so. Can anyone lend me a sword to fall on?
