This little op-ed piece by Bill O’Relly in the NY Daily News made me laugh: High-level dodge ball (Pols shop around for shows that ask only easy questions).
It’s funny because he’s shocked… SHOCKED! that Rumsfeld won’t come on his show and answer his questions:
Why didn’t your Defense Department warn the country that the aftermath of the war in Iraq could be very bloody? Was it another intelligence failure?
Suddenly, it looks like O’Reilly is coming out swinging for the Bush administration. What happened? Did Bill get kidnapped by feminists who fed him the Liberal Kool-Aid?
No, this is easily explained, you see, O’Reilly is an opportunist Republican, and he can see that their ship is sinking as the flow of truth is coming over the stern faster than they can haul it out with buckets full of lies. An apt anology, considering Bill is merely a rat deserting early.
He likes to abuse his moniker as head of the “No Spin Zone”, but in fact he’s spinning himself, lauding the invasion a year ago, then coming to terms with the absense of WMDs. It’s no suprise many reasonable people find him to be little more than a big blubbering vagina (humorous and completely safe for work).
Oh well, he’ll probably become another born-again Libertarian like Niel Boortz. Another slobbering sycophant who sucks up to the current leaders when the shift is in their favor, then slithers off when it becomes obvious that the shit has hit the fan. Selah!
