1) I love it (as in completely hate it) how Mr. O'Reilly always bitches and moans about "The View" not having a sufficient number of conservatives on it. Not, mind you, that this is necessarily an unfair observation (this, in that, yes, Elizabeth Hassellbeck does seem a trifle lonely there). Shows like that probably SHOULD have a much more balanced presentation. But, come on here. Mr. O'Reilly works for frigging Fox. When we the last time that you've ever seen a completely well balanced panel on THAT network? I mean, just that idiotic morning program alone; three conservative bobble-heads, an agenda that literally always puts the Democrats on the defensive, etc.. Hell, even on Brett Baier's mostly well-respected (by Fox's standards) evening show, "Special Report", the panel on that show is almost always two conservatives and one (usually mushy) liberal/two conservatives and one non-partisan (mostly respected) journalist. You never see O'Reilly bitch and moan about any of this stuff - at least not on the air you don't.............2) As for those "liberals" on Fox, I don't know, folks - to me, it almost looks as if they're taking a dive at times. Just yesterday, for instance, Hannity made this utterly simplistic statement about the Iraqis being "much better off now than they were under Saddam Hussein".....and, yeah, the liberal just frigging sat there, "duh!". I mean, I was literally yelling at the screen, for Christ, "Tell him about the four million refugees, the persecution of Christians, the strengthening of Iran's hand, the largely destroyed infrastructure, ANYTHING!! Don't just frigging sit there!".....Oh well, hopefully the woman got a nice little check for her appearance.............3) It appears here that Vice President Biden has opened up his yapper and inserted his foot into it again. This, folks, in that, yes, according to Mr. Biden, the beleaguered Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, ISN'T a dictator....ISN'T A DICTATOR!! I mean, come on, if Mrs. Palin or Mrs. Bachmann had something that idiotic (and, yes, they do - frequently), would not those two have been pilloried, laughed out of the God-damned room, etc.?. I'm telling you here, there DOES seem to be a double-standard at times.
