Last night, I saw the Bill O'Reilly-Paul Krugman showdown on Tim Russert's show. I swear, O'Reilly is becoming more and more unhinged every day. He really looks like he's going to lose it. Here's why:
He went "all in" with Bush. You've seen those Texas Hold 'Em poker tournaments, right? "All in" is when you bet everything you have. That's what O'Reilly and a bunch of other conservatives did. Now, they're screwed because they're stuck with Bush and his terrible record.
Krugman is a NY Times columnist who is an economics professor at Princeton. O'Reilly couldn't win with the facts so he did his usual number: interrupted, pointed his finger, and said things like Krugman quoting mediamatters.org would be comparable to O'Reilly quoting the KKK.
Honest, that's what he said.
Ever notice that people, when they know they're right, don't feel the need to scream, interrupt and insult like they're a member of Hulk Hogan's entourage.
Then, think about the O'Reilly and Hannity's of the world.
