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.

My world does not make sense anymore.

If Time (People Mag for the semi literate) made Lady Gaga their most influential person of their Time 100 then… uh oh too late.

It was the wrong time to quit hospital morphine.

Dogs and cats, living together, without benefit of matrimony, the oceans overflowing, O’Reilly defending Franken, no, this is a sign. Think of the most harmless thing you can.

OK, here it is:

Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
Winston Zeddmore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!
Mayor: Enough! I get the point! And what if you’re wrong?
Dr. Peter Venkman: If we’re wrong, then nothing happens. We go to jail. Peacefully. Quietly. We’ll enjoy it. But if we’re right, and we can stop this thing, Lenny… [The mayor looks at him incredulously.] you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters.

Is that a pig I see flying in the sky?

I think we have our next Nobel Peace Prize winner.

No, sorry, O’Reilly gets no credit for this. This gentle scolding is being banked to show how “fair and balanced” he is.

I have to say, if Mattera graduated summa cum laude, as he
, Roger Williams University’s standards are pretty low.

@karen marie: RWU is a joke. It’s easier to get into than Johnson & Wales, and they’ll admit any idiot.
