The O'Reilly Enemies List

Not since Richard Nixon have we seen so comprehensive a list of people who need to be punished for their transgressions.

In fairness, this is technically not an "enemies" list. It is, Media Matters says, "the list of people he specifically attacks" in his new book, Culture Warrior. [It} "shows that among the dozens there appear to be only two clear conservatives -- Michael Savage and Ann Coulter." Don't you wish you were in this distinguished company?

Well... hmmm... other than the two conservatives, yeah... that is a good enemies list.

The two conservatives however expose Bill for what he is. Someone who is jealous of those that are better than he is.

Better at what, Jessica?

Better at being conservative, and for the record I don't think much of Paul Bucher so... that's a bad guess, badgervan.

xout: I stand corrected. You do seem to share the same mind and style of writing, though. Heck, conservs these days all sound exactly the same. Blind devotion to failed policies and the Decider and his enablers is getting quite old, especially as our country's global reputation continues to go down the crapper. We have never needed serious change in our national "leadership" more than now - November 7 cannot get here soon enough.
