Bill O’Reilly was on The View this morning where heated discussions on the “terror mosque” are apparently still happening. I’ve already made my views known on the subject, so I’m basically going to stick to how everyone looked like asshats in this whole ordeal because television punditry is entirely theater. Via Popeater:
“Listen to me because you’ll learn,” he exclaimed, adding that he believes President Obama’s numbers are falling because of his unwillingness to comment on “the wisdom of” building the community center.
“You’re saying that Americans are not smart enough to recognize that while it is part of our Constitution to say freedom of religion and freedom to worship and there were 70 families who are Muslim who also died in that building. So you’re saying that his saying that they have the right to do it and not saying anymore is why his approval ratings have gone down?” Goldberg questioned.
At that point, O’Reilly responded “Muslims killed us on 9/11,” prompting Joy and Whoopi to storm off set because that’s how rational adults handle arguments. Granted, I agree with them, you’re not doing anybody any favors by leaving poor Barbara Walters sitting there like the confused grandmother at the bus station you forgot to pick up. And to her credit, Barbara scolded everyone for acting like children before demanding more Vaseline on the camera lens. “I said, make me look like Vivian Leigh not Janet Leigh, you nincompoops. I had tea with Ghandi!”
NOTE: For those of you on the right enjoying the sampling of red meat, here’s more liberals acting like idiots when Chez Pazienza tries to make a rational argument about abortion that doesn’t involve zygotes raping women from the inside because they’re chauvinist aliens from the planet You Deserve Less Wages-Tron. (Full Disclosure: This is what happens when I’m reminded Jane Hamsher exists.)
