O’Reilly gets beat up by a girl
The Long Island Loofah Lover goes all fanboy and gets smacked down:
At the Time 100 party a few days before this interview, the Dixie Chicks performed “Not Ready to Make Nice.” Afterward Ms. Maines recounted, the Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly â€” who has regularly denounced her, and whom she pointedly calls “despicable” â€” rushed over to greet them. “It’s like, ‘Just want to say that was great!’ ” Ms. Maines said. ” ‘I really like that new song.’ “
“And I go, ‘But two million tops, right?’ And he goes, ‘What?’ And I said, ‘I saw your show when you said we wouldn’t sell more than two million, tops.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, ah, well, two million’s pretty good these days, right?’ And I was just like, ‘Right, yeah. You were saying it in a positive way.’ “
Ms. Robison interrupted, laughing. “That’s what you call a no-spin zone.”
“So then he was just backtracking,” Ms. Maines continued. “He says: ‘We really respect what you did. And we really respect that you stand up for yourself and blah blah blah. We just wish you would say it over here.’ And I said, ‘I’ll say it over here.’ “
Too bad. I bet Bill was just getting up the courage to tell Maines that she had really nice breasts.
