Not Getting It



The cool thing about this video is that Bill O'Reilly - in the course of misunderstanding why he hasn't been libeled - makes a crystal-clear case for Bill O'Reilly being a stupid bigoted asshole.

Maybe there are RD Laing-like steps here.

B says something stupid.
"B is stupid."
"That's libel!"
"No it's not."
"Yes it is!"
"That's stupid. I must conclude you are stupid."
"That's libel!"

B says something assholish.
"B is an asshole."
"That's libel!"
"No it's not."
"Yes it is and SHUT UP!"
"I must conclude you are an asshole."
"That's libel!"

B says something bigoted.
"B is a bigot."
"That's libel!"
"No it's not."
"Yes it is and you're siding with C because she's a woman!"
"I must conclude you are a bigot."
"That's libel!"

Bill's right to feel sanctimonious about his big fat butthurt was violated!

Why can't you see this, RB!

WHY?!!!

Oh, you're slick, Bubba, you're REAL slick. You dangle that embedded video out there where it tempts me to watch it. It would be so easy, just one click and sit back, to be enlightened, to understand the joke.

Do you think you're playing with KIDS here? More accomplished tricksters than you have tried to coerce or mislead me into watching the likes of O'Reilly, Hannity and Limbaugh. It cannot be done. Oh, I'll read the transcripts. I just can't watch the actual performances. I live alone, and I have used the Comcast parental controls to block Fox news - FROM MYSELF.

Bill O will simply have to blunder through life with his loofa and his millions without me...

"…and legions of other people."

Beware the liberal libel legion. It is legion.

O'Reilly really gets ticked off when Floyd tells if you dish it out, you better be able to take it. Pretty amusing.

mikey, would you be tempted to watch the video if I told O'Reilly was actually a Stasi agent?

Damn you Prelutsky with your so called advice.

I live alone, and I have used the Comcast parental controls to block Fox news - FROM MYSELF.I have hidden the friggin' remote from myself. But we wait for him to make a mistake, don't we my precious, oh yes!!

Capcha is just making nonsense, xnfieses!!??

Good lord. The poster child for WATB.

Are you really certain the the cool thing about this video is before you click da button the square "play" button in the center of the image appears to give ol' Bill a weird square goatee with a "play" icon in them middle right over the lower third of Bill's pie hole?

Because that's the thing from which I simply cannot look away...

mikey

and while I'll wear my yalmu with pride, these settlements have got to stop....

As an American, Bill O'Reilly has the right to stick his fingers in his ears & say "La la la la la" at the top of his voice until the nasty mean people go away & stop talking about him.

Oh, I'll read the transcripts. I just can't watch the actual performances.

This one's actually funny. Fairly quickly on a lawyer informs him that he was not libeled and then for the rest of it he's just this far away from being drawn by Tom Tomorrow.

A few threads ago it was all Borges and Ficciones. Now you're quoting 'Knots'. I do not log on to the Internet expecting to think, damnit.

J— said...

This one is also a good example of the wingnut lament/celebration of permanent worldly victimhood. O'Reilly dismisses the lawyer's explanation that under the law he was not libeled because he knows there is another, higher system that recognizes the legitimacy of his grievance. If the law in its strict definition of wrong does not help him, that's just proof that it too is out to get him.

J— said...

More briefly, and in keeping with the literary references, he knew he was right.

Although I seriously doubt the cover of Trollope's book could match the cover of Knots.

Jeffrey Rosen shan't be back.

Do you think I missed any labels?

P.S. RB said I must blog, so that's my excuse.

Paging doctor Mcluhan, your media message is here!

You chose that super-nasty comment form! It hates me!

On the one hand I'd like to be able to say that O'Reilly can eat my asshole, because I'd like for him to have some of my shit and ass sweat in his mouth. On the other hand I don't want his tongue near my naked asshole. It's a dilemma.

Another Kiwi said...

So true, Rusty Shackleford. The overwhelming desire to glue Billos lips to the anus of a syphilitic camel is countered by the concern for the camel's welfare.

mikey said...

Gimme the goddam glue and get outta the way.

That camel means nothing to me...

mikey

Righteous Bubba said...

I walked a mile for that camel.

herr doktor bimler said...

Never criticise a camel until you have walked a mile carrying its straw on your back.

fish said...

Rusty has a problem.

I have a solution.

Rusty Shackleford said...

Fish's beer bong solution could work. It is quite warm and humid here in Mississippi so I think I could work up the necessary hydraulic head just with my ass sweat. If not I'll go out for some illegal alien food and that should do the trick.

This has been another ilism.

Righteous Bubba said...

Billos lips

THAT'S LABIAL!

herr doktor bimler said...

Bill is a voiced bi-libelled fricative.

Another Kiwi said...

Goddam socialist labials!!!


Was that you capcha? Who made the parpt noise?
