Okay…so two blowhards walk onto a TV show….
You can’t make stuff like this up. The Savage Weiner on O’Reilly:
O’REILLY: You don’t go to church. You’re not a real strong God guy. So why are you so…
SAVAGE: Wait, wait. No, no. Bill — Bill — Bill, I’m a very strong God-believing man. I just don’t go to houses of worship, except maybe once or twice a year, because whether you — well, whether people accept it or not, I am in touch with God all day long.
O’REILLY: All right. That’s fine. That’s your belief.
SAVAGE: I talk to God.
O’REILLY: But, you know, very rarely do you get somebody like you who are — who was so angry — well, you’re an angry — you know, you do that anyway, I mean, just to get attention. I understand…
SAVAGE: Oh, no.
O’REILLY: Oh, no, no, no, no. Part of your schtick deal is to overstate. Look…
O’REILLY: You and I talked before. You’re not…
SAVAGE: It’s wrong. You’re wrong.
O’REILLY: You’re not a stupid man. You’ve got…
SAVAGE: Bill — there are things worthy of anger, Bill.
O’REILLY: … a Ph.D.
SAVAGE: Bill, Bill, Bill. There are things worthy of anger.
O’REILLY: But you overstate — you overstate to get attention, and that’s a legitimate technique.
SAVAGE: I disagree. I think you understate to get attention.
O’REILLY: Well, if you…
SAVAGE: That doesn’t mean that you’re doing it for effect.
O’REILLY: … think I’m understated, that just shows how overstated you are!
O’REILLY: Yes, I would. I mean the secularists don’t want any — look, why is Mel Gibson being, you know..
O’REILLY: Right. Pardon the pun. Because they don’t want this movie to be seen by millions of people to regenerate interest in Jesus who had a strict moral code. They don’t want any moral judgments. They want legalization of drugs, gay marriage. You go down the list, no moral judgments.
You want to have two guys making out in front of your 4-year-old? It’s OK with them. A guy smoking a joint, blowing the smoke into your little kid’s face? OK with them. And I’m not exaggerating here. This is exactly what the secular movement stands for.
SAVAGE: Bill, be careful. You’re overstating now, Bill.
O’REILLY: I’m not. I’ve seen both of those things happen, and…
SAVAGE: I have, too.
O’REILLY: … I’ve — and I’ve confronted the people who did that…
O’REILLY: … and I know how they’re thinking.
I have seen monkeys in a cage having a more intelligent conversation…
