Okay, you know I’m not a Bill O’Reilly fan. And though I’ve got it linked here, I’m really not the biggest Kos forum fan either. The blog seems to be dominated by more ozone cases lately, and it gives the O’Reilly types more ammunition. The major right blogs such as Little Green Footballs avoid this with moderation, and still some of the rightward nut-cases shine through anyway. Imagine if I was to be judged by all of the posts here!
But give Kos credit. They do their homework.
No, Bill, of course that’s not over the top!
In case you’re keeping score, here’s the Bill O’Reilly “Daily Kos is just like…” checklist.
- David Duke — Check.
- Al Capone — Check.
- Benito Mussolini — Check.
- Nazis — Check. Double check. Triple Check.
- KKK — Check. Double check. Triple Check.
Nice list. And it’s highly convenient that rather than having to rummage through the cesspool of BillO’s officially unmonitored web site, he provides the hate speech straight from his own snarling lips.
However, the fact that O’Reilly has had to dip into the Nazi well three times, shows that his repertoire of nastiness is sadly limited. Having used up the KKK, World War II opponents, and dead Italians, Bill risks being a monotonous blowhard who just repeats the same mindless crap evening after evening without the slightest bit of thought or originality. And gee, who would watch that?
I saw some of the exchange on cable news the other night. I wonder how many hits O’Reilly’s rant has generated for Kos.
