Bill O'Reilly's Sexist "Humor" (?)

Reported by Priscilla - November 17, 2010 -

During the last presidential campaign, the right wing was all in a tizzy about "sexist" remarks, being made by evil libruls, against Sarah Palin. In advancing this meme, Bill O'Reilly lied (I know, it's hard to believe) when he claimed that feminists didn't defend her. But interestingly, O'Reilly also "joked," on "The View," that Palin should come on his show because he "had an outfit she could wear." (Ewww) So it seems that Bill was being a bit hypocritical regarding sexism - or was he just being funny? Recently, during his interview with "body language" person Tanya Reiman, about Nancy Pelosi's post election body language, Bill "joked," at length" about Pelosi's "botox" interfering with her facial expressions - "with all due respect." Pelosi's botox does seem to be a staple of right wing "humor" so it's not surprising that Bill would join the fun. (Can you imagine the right wing outrage if Keith Olbermann "joked" about - ah - Michelle Bachman's cleavage!) But seriously, joking about the first female Speaker of the House, in terms of her appearance, is not respectful. Wonder if Bill would joke about John Boehner's strange orange skin or seriously nasty dead things atop the balding pates of GOP male legislators "with all due respect!"
