"Independent" Bill O’Reilly Calls Cher Is A Pinhead? Oh, No He Didn’t? Oh, Yes He Did!

Reported by Priscilla - February 10, 2009 -

And what did Cher say or do to deserve the “honor?" On Bill’s video she told a reporter that “I just don’t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican. I just can’t figure it. I don’t understand.” If you’re poor, if you’re any kind of minority – gay, black, Latino, anything. If you’re not a rich – I don’t know. If you’re not a rich born-again-Christian, I don’t get it.” Bill said that “we like Cher” because she does good things and “she seems like a nice person.” Bill snickered while he “broke it gently” to Cher that “there are good people in both parties who love their country like you do. Don’t be a pinhead. Be independent, LIKE ME.” (Cue the blurting of the coffee on the TV!). Course Bill edited the video so Cher’s preceding sentence was cut: “You know what? I have so – I try to be charitable and there are some really good Republicans..” So who is really the “pinhead” here?

Update: The Fox News website has this article: "Cher Dismisses GOP as Party of 'Rich, Born-Again Christians." The article then summarily dismisses Cher's career in 5 sentences beginning with "don't remember who Cher is?" Looks like Fox is waging a "war on Cher."

Bill’s “Pinheads and Patriots” video and the extended Cher commentary video after the fold.

Cher referenced all the groups that are the frequent target of "America's Daddy" - groups that are not exactly embraced by today's republican party. Why would they want to be part of the "white, Christian, male power structure that O'Reilly is clinging to? And it's the very maligning of those who aren't part of this "power structure," particularly on Fox News, that put the groups that Cher referenced squarely into the Democratic fold in the last election. And memo to Bill: There's a reason why Cher is a Diva and you're not! And Bill O'Reilly as "independent" - ROFLMAO!!!!
