Unlike a lot of denizens of Blogtopia (tm Skippy), I don’t dislike Bill O’Reilly because he’s a right-wing gasbag. If I disqualified people from the My Boyfriend list because of that, well, it would be a pretty short list, consisting mainly of John Kerry and Denis Leary.
I dislike Bill O’Reilly because he’s just so unbelievably vain.
He has NPR’s Terry Gross on, right, and we can all see coming that he’d be a real dick to her, so that’s not surprising. What is surprising is his willingness to demonstrate that no matter how much love conservatives get, they’re always concerned that you just don’t realize how unbelievably large and powerful their cocks are:
O’REILLY: That’s the only interview in my whole life I’ve ever terminated. With us now is Terry Gross, the author of the book “All I Did Was Ask: Conversations with Writers, Actors, Musicians and Artists.” Well, you can’t say I didn’t make you famous.
O’REILLY: But that’s not true. We’ve put the whole interview on our Web site…
GROSS: On your Web site. But the part…
O’REILLY: … and gotten over a million hits.
O’REILLY: Yeah, well, I don’t know you, but I’ve listened to your program and I’ve read your book now, looked at your book. I don’t think you’re a bad person, but I think you’re the victim of a mindset, the NPR mindset, OK, where you look at guys like me as a barbarian and it’s your job…
GROSS: Bill, look…
O’REILLY: … to preach to your choir about how bad I am. Look, that interview, you know that wasn’t about my book. That was about me.
GROSS: I appreciate you having me.
O’REILLY: A lot of people would not have come in, in your position. You came in, and you’re a lot smaller than I am.
Yes, Bill. You’re huge, you’re immense, we have no idea how huge you are.
