Speaking of irony, Bill ...

Bill O'Reilly thought it was ironic that a man invaded the campaign offices of Hillary Clinton, who, he says, is "inaccessible," reports Media Matters.
In an interview with Greta Van Susteren, he said,

O'REILLY: Yes, and caused all kinds of things. Because nobody knows, you know, what these people are capable of doing. Some of them are just troubled. Some of them are violent.

But it's ironic because today in The Washington Post is an article that says that people can't get near Hillary Clinton. The press can't get near her, that she's so well protected by Secret Service, her staff, and everybody else that the press can't even ask her any questions. So I thought it was a little ironic that that appears today.

Ironic that a disturbed man invaded her campaign offices? Bill, how does your mind work?

Bill O'Reilly's phony war

In this clip from 2006, O'Reilly spouts off his misconception that people are trying to keep others from saying "Merry Christmas." But it was all a scam.

This week, Bill O'Reilly claimed he "won" his manufactured war on Christmas.

"If I had not done the campaign, then the forces of darkness would have won. There's no question about that. We were able to rally the Alliance Defense Fund in Phoenix, Arizona, to fight the ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] in court. We were able to convince the major retailers to not order their employees to not say 'Merry Christmas,' to stop that nonsense. We won that."

Problem is, Bill, there was no war. You made the whole thing up. You blustered and steamed off lies to your viewers. And you're still doing it.
Media Matters confirms that Crate and Barrel and Best Buy, two firms he cited as being the enemy in his phony war, both gave explanations other than what O'Reilly wanted to hear. They never stopped employees from saying "Merry Christmas." But like good business firms, they consider all holidays.
More clowning from O'Reilly. Happy holidays, everyone.

O'Reilly's advice for the young (and lovelorn)

Ah, the multifaceted O'Reilly. Now he's an advice columnist of sorts giving young people advice in a book.
Well, Tom Tomorrow took him to that, putting the advice in comic book form. You can see Keith Olbermann read it here.
Good work, Keith.
