Bill O’Reilly, Mensch
No, we’re not indulging in April tomfoolery. On his show last night, Billo schooled Stinque Book Club favorite Jason Mattera on congressional etiquette — in this case, disrespecting the senator from the great state of Minnesota by calling him “Senator Smalley” to his face in a Capitol Hill ambush interview.
Not impressed? Try this:
No. 1 cable news host Bill O’Reilly said Tuesday that he will personally write a check to cover $16,500 in legal costs for the father of a fallen U.S. Marine who sued the members of a church who picketed his son’s funeral.
That would be the Westboro Baptist Clown Troupe, which won a lawsuit over their right to behave like assholes during a family’s grieving, then stuck the family with the legal bills.
We’re not about to forgive O’Reilly for his own crimes against humanity. But we’ll give the dude credit when he earns it.
