Here's your Friday video fun. The other night, Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) appeared on the O'Reilly Factor to discuss O'Reilly's attacks on DailyKos and the YearlyKos convention. He practically wets himself in his self righteous fury, and ends up telling Dodd "you're a propagandist! I used to have respect for you! If I were Joseph Lieberman, I'd never speak to you again!"
Man, I wish I got paid a lot of money to just lose it on TV every night. How cathartic.
Another good nugget: While O'Reilly is going nuts about DailyKos and a couple of "vile" posts his interns found, Dodd reminds him that he has said some pretty vile things on his show. When O'Reilly demands an example, Dodd reminds him that in 2005, he said he hoped Al Qaeda blows up the Coit Tower in San Francisco. That's when Bill started going really apoplectic. Of course, he denied it, but Media Matters has the transcript:
O'REILLY: Hey, you know, if you want to ban military recruiting, fine, but I'm not going to give you another nickel of federal money. You know, if I'm the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium, and I say, "Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead."
And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.
What a colostomy bag that guy is.
