Dumb and Dumber : The Bill O'Reilly Edition

Reported by Deborah - April 4, 2008 -

Bill O'Reilly introduced a new segment tonight called "Dumb and Dumber" showing clips of the dumbest things, in his eyes, people have said in the last three months.(Of course, all the comments he chose came from mostly Democrats) He claims he'll do this segment quarterly adding that he's not including himself for modesty reasons. News Hounds is more than happy to help BOR out with his modesty issue by sharing some of the dumb things he's said in the first quarter of 2008.
Updated with video.

This sampling of Bill O'Reilly gems were compiled and posted by News Hound Chrish for our weekly Outrageous Quote poll.

"Moyers puts himself up, at our tax expense, as a fair and objective guy. And here he is at the biggest left-loon conference in the world mocking me. He's a charlatan who epitomizes the left-wing media in this country and doesn't even pay his employees' health insurance." Bill O'Reilly, O'Reilly Factor, 3/19/08

"Notorious race-baiting columnists Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post and Mary Mitchell of the Chicago Sun-Times couldn't wait to viciously attack Ms. Ferraro. These people you are looking at right now are the American media at its worst." Bill O'Reilly smearing two black journalists with zero context or detail, O'Reilly Factor,3/13/08

"I don't want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there's evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels. If that's how she really feels -- that America is a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever -- then that's legit. We'll track it down." Bill O'Reilly, The Radio Factor, 2/19/08

"Twenty-eight Democratic senators voted against coerced interrogation of captured terror suspects and warrantless surveillance of overseas phone calls made to suspected terrorist locations. " ... "And in this high-tech world, if U.S. intel cannot zero in on communications immediately, then crucial information will be lost. Everybody knows that." ... "But reasonable people understand that fighting fanatical terror killers requires speed and resolve. So why are these senators so opposed? All of them are liberal thinkers." Bill O'Reilly misreprsenting facts, O'Reilly Factor, 2/14/08

"Media Matters is run by liars and defamers. They are far worse than pinheads." Bill "I don't do personal attacks here, mister" O'Reilly. The Factor, 1/30/08

" The hard left is happy this evening because the economy is wobbling. For years, these people have been wishing economic disaster on America because they despise President Bush. " Bill O'Reilly, TPM The Factor, 1/22/08

"I had no choice but to uphold the Constitution." Bill O'Reilly, smugly, defending his shoving, shouting, and swearing at Obama bodyguard Marvin Nicholson at New Hampshire rally, Talking Points Memo 1/7/08.

"Should You Care About the Iowa Vote? The answer is not really. It's interesting. Some of the candidates will be helped by it, some of the weaker ones will be weeded out, but it's only a very small activist snapshot. It doesn't reflect how the majority of Americans really feel. [snip] All this is interesting, but does it do America any good? The answer is not really." Bill O'Reilly fomenting disinterest in the American electoral process, O'Reilly Factor, 1/3/08

These are definitely not all the dumb things O'Reilly has said this year. Who has the time or energy to compile that list? At least, BOR can join the other people he smeared tonight like Jane Fonda, Ted Turner, Joy Behar, Chris Matthews, Willie Nelson, John Edwards, Diane Keaton, Jeremiah Wright, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama. Bill, you asked for it!
