Gawker‘s Fox News scoop is up this morning and it’s about Bill “Loofah Boy” O’Reilly. When O’Reilly thought his wife was having an affair with a Nassau County police detective, he used his power to try to get the guy in trouble because of his personal life, not his official conduct. I guess he thinks of Nassau County as his own little “police state.” How cool would it have been if Bill had strangled the guy with a loofah?!
If you’re perplexed by the loofah references, just Google “Bill O’Reilly, Andrea Macris” and enjoy.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) quite properly criticizes Rick Perry for calling Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke “treasonous” for using standard monetary policy. King says that Perry won’t do well unless “he tones down.” Excellent advice, but King’s stone comes postmarked “Glass House, Long Island.” King has been holding fear-mongering hearings on what he terms “Radicalization in the American Muslim Community” to promote his Islamophobia. Like Perry, King sees treason where it doesn’t exist. Both men need to tone it down, way down.
