Bill O'Reilly is an asshole (But you knew that...)

Bill O'Reilly said he would like to murder bloggers because he agrees with political strategist Larry Sabato that the blogs are filled with vitriol (see video clip and transcript at Think Progress). Has he never heard the saying, "Grenades and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me?" Also laughable is O'Reilly's comment that he "knows for a fact" that Bush is unaware of" what's going on in the internet" because he has "asked around." The last time I heard O'Reilly talking about "facts" was when he was explaining why evolution is not science: "There's 24 hours in a day--that's science." O'Reilly has been just plain wrong so many times that he retains no credibility whatsoever.

Now, when the Big O stated that he would go "into" the internet with a hand grenade, perhaps he meant that he did not wish to murder bloggers, but only to eliminate their voices. Eh? I thought this guy was supposed to be a conservative, and I thought conservatives respected the constitution. (Just kidding--I know the modern-day conservative has a strong dislike for the constitution, especially the Bill of Rights and any claims of freedom to do things that conservatives don't like.)

(I learned of this further example of O'Reilly lunacy from Dispatches from the Culture Wars.)
