Ah, Bill, that’s gotta hurt!

Townhall.com, an enormously influential righty website, has posted its list of the 25 most influential conservatives. AND 32 runners-up.  The runners-up are:


At number 41, not only doesn’t Bill O’Reilly make their top 25, but he ranks behind trickster James O’Keefe. Methinks this will rouse Papa Bear (as Steven Colbert calls him) to new heights of retribution – an O’Reilly staple. He is, like Rush Limbaugh,, remarkably thin-skinned for someone who’s been in the public eye for so long.

Bill O’Reilly went to Iceland?

Disagree with me? I’ll cut your mic.

He did indeed. And he had a few things to say about that gorgeous nation – actually, I don’t think he noticed the gorgeous part –  in an article on his website (forget trying to find it; the site is one of those Rush-style ‘premium membership’ places . There is, after all, money to be made.)

 It seems O’Reilly isn’t impressed with Iceland. He did note, however, that “they dress neatly and speak English.” Which I think he considers a good thing. I’m reminded that a few years back O’Reilly wrote about his first time going out to dinner in Harlem. He was quite pleased to discover that in the restaurant people ‘acted normally’ and there were tablecloths. Or something.

Anyway, Icelanders are not thrilled. Some of them even wrote about it.

In my personal opinion Bill O’Reilly’s article is . . . nothing but a collection of unverified statements and foolish assumptions spiced up with arrogance and ignorance.

I’m tempted to assume Bill hasn’t done his research. . . Simply consulting Wikipedia . . . would have been better than nothing.

Thanks for nothing, Bill. Please don’t come back to Iceland.

What was O’Reilly doing in Iceland? 

Oh, I meant to say earlier . . .

. . . that, for the second year, the War on Christmas has been called off because the soldiers failed to show up, which left poor Bill O’Reilly starved of targets. Anyway, those of you who did stand at the ready, you may now return home. Nice try.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure . . .

. . . I present this, in which Mr. Bill O’Reilly shines as the voice of reason. Thin on facts but no matter – still the voice of reason.

Tivo alert

Jon Stewart on O’Reilly Factor tonight. Oh my goodness this will be entertaining. 8pm Fox News channel.

UPDATE: Whoops – tomorrow night, not tonight.

Rings true for me

New York Magazine has a lenghty piece about Jon Stewart in the current issue. From it:

“Jon is exactly the same guy he’s always been, only with money,” says Denis Leary, a friend since 1986. “He knows that the moment he really believes he’s important, the funny goes away and he becomes Bill O’Reilly, except shorter and Jewish.”

That sounds about right.
