I didn't watch last night's O'Reilly Factor, but Protein Wisdom pointed out that Bill was going after bloggers last night. I decided just for grins to look at the transcript of last night's show to see what on Earth Bill might say now about blogging. These days he seems to bug me more often than not, so I wasn't too surprised when he went off into la la land. First of all... the title of the transcript is "Unresolved Problem: Political Smear Sites". That is the very first thing he thinks about... well... me. I'm not a blogger... I run a smear site.
That's right... that's pretty much all we do is throw dirt. But be mindful of where he's going with this. We'll do "pretty much anything to harm people". Of course... the only real tool at the disposal of a blogger... is well... our blog. The only thing we can do to harm people is post words on a website. But I'll keep going through the transcript.
Oh my god! Call the police! They sent him emails! Were you traumatized by this sir? Were they that much harder to filter out of your inbox then all those viagra and mortgage spam emails?
Little boys indeed. You guys sound like little boys complaining to the teacher because some other nasty kids on the playground were saying mean things to you. Should I pat your head Bill and remind you that "Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you"?
And what's with he assassins bit? Who's the crazy one now Bill? Did any of those emails contain threats to shoot you in the head with a high powered rifle? Because that is what assassins do. Assassins don't sit in front of a computer in their pajamas (or boxers in my case) typing words to go onto a webpage.
Bill O'Reilly is afraid of me? You mean if I keep blogging about him, I can control what he is going to talk about on his show? I can finally take him off the air if I want? In my dreams. Get over yourself Bill. Just like you don't have nearly the amount of influence you brag about on your show (and you brag way to much about it), bloggers don't have nearly the power you attribute to us. Calling us assassins is pretty out there too. That's about equivalent to calling George Bush a terrorist. Give it a rest.
Anytime Bill needs someone to come on his show I'm ready. I'll put up with the "internet crazies." Heck, I haven't had any good hate mail in a long, long time.Post a Comment
