I completely forgot that Bill O'Reilly was on "The View" this morning. I can't believe I blanked on that.

I never knew he was going to be on.

He promoted it a few times during the week, but I filled in on a radio show last night and was very tired when I got home. I woke up this morning and watched "The Factor" on DVR. I didn't catch his pre-viewer e-mail promotion of his "View" appearance until shortly an hour and a half ago. Based on Hal Boedeker's recap, I'm glad I missed it. It sounded like all the ladies (except Elisabeth, of course) hated Bill and never want to see his rear again.

I always thought Barbara Walters liked him. She is on his show fairly often.

It sounded like BOR enjoyed himself on the view. Saying that Whoopi was jealous seems like a classic! Looking forward to seeing the vid.

It's just the way Hal B. wrote two things:
1) "'Excuse me, what would I be jealous of, Bill?' Goldberg snapped. 'I've been a movie star for 25 years, baby.'"
2) "A fed-up Barbara Walters handed the book to O'Reilly and said, "Plug your own book.'"

It was obvious O'Reilly rubbed Whoopie's rhubarb from the minute he stepped onto the set. She needs to lighten up.

Sounds like the ladies of "The View" can dish it out but they can't take it. Did O'Reilly criticize Joy for not takiing Gore Vidal to task on her HLN show when Vidal said the other night that his biggest regret was not murdering George W. Bush?

Johnny or anyone, what in the world is this about? I linked to it from the left rail at NH.  
I do understand that he thinks Murdoch is pirating work that he should either stop or pay for and that he is planning some type of assault that is supposed to create problems/out him. But what is the something that is giving this guy the vapors?

The show was taped either Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. So, the Gore Vidal interview/Bush death fantasy revelation didn't come up.
I just finished watching Bill's "View" segment here on the show's website. It wasn't as bad as Hal B. made it out to be. A good time was had by all...except Joy, of course.

I keep forgetting to comment on Bill George's flip flop (re: George disavows Olbermann post). So, I'll do that now: shame on him for giving in, like Ken Rudin did last week after making the Obama-Nixon comparison over the one-sided fight with FNC. A thought occurs: Guess who else engages in one-sided fights with FNC or its personalities? The guy Bill George initially criticized: the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann; the ultimate bully.

Grammie I checked it out but video streams of anime? Sorry but the topic just makes my hair hurt. Spare me. I couldn't get beyond that.
By the way, My Left Wing is not a guy, it's a gal. She's been on with John Gibson a number of times.

I have patience but tonight, it ran out.
