Dennis Miller Baselessly Paints Rep. Bob Etheridge As A Drunk

Reported by Ellen - June 17, 2010 -

During his regular Wednesday night gig on The O’Reilly Factor last night (6/16/10), Dennis Miller discussed the scuffle with Rep. Bob Etheridge by making a series of “jokes” about Etheridge’s alleged alcohol abuse - even though Miller acknowledged he had no actual knowledge about Etheridge’s drinking. Classy!

“That is the face that has launched a thousand two-martini lunches,” Miller “quipped.” He added, “Those aren’t bags under his eyes, they’re air bags, OK? You get a leather handle and a couple Louis Vuitton logos, you got yourself some nice carry-on there.”

“Look at that jerk,” Miller continued. “…Bob Etheridge, be honest with yourself. Did you ever think you’d get to the point where you were so loaded in the middle of the afternoon and your face was more blurred than the kids whose face they were electronically blurring?”

O’Reilly said that though he didn’t know what “set this guy off,” Miller “seem(ed) to think that he’d had a couple of cocktails.”

Miller replied by shouting, “He’s either drunk or drunk with power, Billy. Doesn’t matter. He’s drunk or he’s drunk with power.”

I can’t defend Etheridge, but Miller’s behavior left a lot to be desired, too.
