As far as Bill O’Reilly and his “comedian” pal Dennis Miller are concerned we could all be locked into jobs we hate just because we need the health insurance. Better the rest of us should all suffer than those two one percenters should pay a little more in taxes. Or thnk they might have to. That alone, speaks volumes about their (lack of) character. But not content to leave it there, Miller embarked on a series of childishly personal and sexist attacks on Nancy Pelosi and Sandra Fluke.
The discussion started with O’Reilly playing a clip of Pelosi talking about the importance of relieving American workers of “job lock.” As Media Matters has noted:
Economists are encouraged by reports that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will increase job flexibility by allowing workers to maintain health coverage outside employment, calling the impact good for workers and the economy. But to Fox News, increased flexibility just means increased laziness.
To Dennis Miller, it’s just an excuse to make “jokes” about Pelosi’s looks, her intelligence and Sandra Fluke’s sexuality.
Miller said about the Pelosi clip, “Pelosi’s a tough one for me. I can’t tell if she’s a creep or a moron but I’ll say moron today after watching that.”
O’Reilly's voice dripped with sarcasm as he sneered, “We have to pay for the other people’s passions, Miller, because they may not want to be in a job that’s hard, so we’ll give ‘em the health insurance and entitlements and maybe make a little money under the table and they can pursue their passion.”
Miller added, “It’s rich that the queen of forehead lock would lecture me on job lock. … This woman is a karma compromiser. She’s a creepy dame who’s done poorly by this country”
Believe it or not, O’Reilly also complained in this segment that he can’t understand why Pelosi does not want to do an interview with him.
O’Reilly moved on to discuss Sandra Fluke who is now running for the California state Senate. Obviously, O’Reilly has some kind of weird fixation on her. He has obsessively obsessively maligned Fluke as some kind of sex-crazed slut ever since she made a name for herself advocating for contraception coverage in health insurance.
Miller seems happy to carry on The O’Reilly Factor tradition. He said:
There’s another genius coming down the road. …She can take the torch from Pelosi. You know what, Sandra? There are women who work two jobs. You know what their birth control is? They’re too tired to do it when they get home. Alright?
Now, we’ve come to a point where… now women choose to be helpless single women. She’s the next Pelosi in my book.
And they wonder why people say Republicans are waging a war on women.
Remember in those “good old days” (that you and BillO love reminiscing about), a woman’s “job” when it came to sex was “just lay back and think about the laundry” while the husband/boyfriend was putting in his 30-60 seconds worth of work. Just because a woman’s “too tired” isn’t going to cut it with a horned-up hound who “wants it now” or he’ll find someone who does want it (in other words, the FoxNoise desired male demographic—as opposed to their actual male demographic, most of whom are themselves too tired to do it).
