Bill O'Reilly to 'retire' from this cruel world
Bring out the tiny violin for the blowhard: “Now it’s so bad that I spend an enormous amount of money protecting myself against evil.”
Bill O’Reilly had a sit-down with Newsday‘s Verne Gay (excerpts here are from NewsMax), and he poured his heart out about the liberal media and the public persecuting him. Waaaaah, poor baby.
The Faux News gnome, after settling the “loofah” sexual harassment suit brought by former Fox News producer Andrea Mackris, now appears to have lost whatever tenuous grip he had on reality.
O’Reilly told Newsday that he receives death threats and has to hire bodyguards. He can’t check into hotels with his family. People on the street take his picture with their cell phones and then post it on the Web. “Who wants to live like that?” he complains.
As a result of the lawsuit settlement, O’Reilly must have a third person present whenever he conducts an interview or speaks to someone on the phone. “Anyone can accuse me of anything and it’s on a Web site,” he said in the interview.
Gay writes: “So little wonder that when Bill O’Reilly is asked about his future after his current contract ends a little more than two years from now, he blurts out one word even as the question is asked: ‘Retirement.'”
But then O’Reilly backpedaled somewhat: “I might. I might. There’s only so much aggression you can absorb.”
Good lord, talk about aggression. O’Lielly has to be one of the nastiest, rudest, most abusive talking heads out there. I can’t believe those words emitted from his pie hole. The paranoia truly has set in. All the better — I hope he can put us out of our misery and get the hell off of the air before his two years are up.
The only sad thing is that Al Franken won’t have him to kick around anymore.
I decided to visit the swamps of Freeperland, to see whether the knuckle-draggers are still defending the nasty pr*ck. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they are in full revolt mode, even trashing former lovefest wingers Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Special fun is provided as they present their picks for a replacement for Mr. Loofah.
“I believe the shark has bitten Mr. O’Reily.”
“O’Reilly has always been good at playing the victim. He’s a very insecure person.”
“People on the street take his picture with their cell phones and then post it on the Web.“
“Seems kinda thin-skinned. He’s a public figure for gosh sakes. What does he expect? Bush has his picture taken every 15 seconds on a slow day. You don’t hear him complaining.”
“Hey Bill, move to Florida (I’m sure Fox can let you broadcast from there), fire your bodyguards, get yourself a concealed carry permit and announce on air that you have it and will use it – end of problem!!!!”
“What do you mean? He’s looking out for us. LOL. See ya, Bill. Don’t let the door hit ya in the ass…”
“Retire Mr. O’Reilly. The new 8pm Fox show will be The Rush Rules. We just have to find the right host.”
“Bill O’Reilly is hardly the conservative stalwart that the political Left makes him out to be. The Left just cannot stand a World where there are people who disagree with them.”
“I’d love to see Rush as his replacement. Runners up either Dennis Preger, Michael Medved or Hugh Hewett.”
“Listening to O’Riley is like listening to paint dry.”
“loofah + goofball = falafel”
“He has also hired bodyguards to protect himself. Phone sex with the wrong woman.?”
“Oh please don’t retire Bill.(/sarcasm)”
“Used to watch him when he first started but like many he’s become so full of himself he thinks he’s more important than the stories he covers. No loss here. Have a happy retirement.”
“Bill carefully crafts his spectrum of positions on issues so that he is able to please all of the people some of the time. It is a marketing strategy, purely and simply, based upon boundless greed and ambition and a total lack of personal integrity.”
“I hope he quits… give Ann Coulter or Laura Ingraham his slot.”
“If he retires, he’s just giving in to their smear attacks. I’ll say one thing about Bill O’Reilly, he does more to protect America’s children than most anyone in government.”
“Prager will never have a prime time show, too thought provoking.”
“How many bodyguards does a Leprechaun need?”
“e-mail the link to this thread to weeWilly at FNC: email@example.com”
“Well, The Leprechaun (Savage’s term) is good for one thing. And as soon as I figure out what it is, I’ll get back to you………..”
“Fox might be watchable again once they get rid of ORiley and Hannity. the 2 most over rated, pompous a$$es on TV. Legends in their own minds. Alan Colmes may be an idiot, but at least he is a gentleman.”
“Both Laura and Ann have become so shrill and condescending the last year. I canceled my Laura 24/7 membership yesterday because I can not listen any more with out screaming! (and it is not over the Harriett nomination). BO was tuned out a long time ago over the same reasons.”
“No, Bill, no! Don’t retire! Because …Huh. Can’t think of a reason. Go ahead, then.”
