Comments on: An Example of Why I Don’t Like Bill O’Reilly http://www.poliblogger.com/?p=8678 A rough draft of my thoughts...

I dunno, maybe the hurricane has me more focused on the "more important things in life" but I'm left wondering why this is such a big deal to anyone. Egads- someone used hyperbole to make a political point. That almost never happens. But what do I know?... I didn't think Gore making fund raising calls from the whitehouse was a big deal and I didn't think Lott's birthday party toast was a big deal either. Hey Steven, long time no type-

I wonder how much of it he truly believes or if he just knows how to keep his ratings up. O'Reilly's and Pat Robertson’s hyperbole cater to the fringe and less educated in society, then the media jump on this nonsense and we have a self perpetuating cycle.

Are you sure you aren't talking about Bush?? “I will add, what with his references to “the folks” (i.e., all those “normal” viewers out there), his attempt to paint himself as an outsider to power (which because laughbale, given that he has the highest rated program on cable news), and his doggedly certain rhetoric.”
