jim gilliam has done it again.

but truth be told it sort of fell in his lap.

gilliam, the co-producer of the scandalous Outfoxed, the documentary about the alleged republican favoritism of Fox News Channel. Its best moments, in my opinion was when they were exposing FNC’s biggest draw, Bill O’Reilly.

since gilliam had access to more Factor than is probably good for ones mental health, he was able to put together a cleverly done quicktime fisking if the need came up.

When O’Reilly was slapped yesterday with a $60 million sexual harrasment lawsuit after forcing a producer to listen to his sexual advice exploits and exaggerations,

the last person he wanted to have some free time would be jim gilliam

internet superstar

coproducer of the doc aimed right at him

who just happens to be sitting on hours and hours and hours of o’reilly being o’reilly.

enjoy the majesty.

more debate coverage that you wont see

on the worlds most popular political blog

KERRY: When the president had an opportunity to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, he took his focus off of them, outsourced the job to Afghan warlords, and Osama bin Laden escaped.

Six months after he said Osama bin Laden must be caught dead or alive, this president was asked, “Where is Osama bin Laden?”

He said, “I don’t know. I don’t really think about him very much. I’m not that concerned.”

We need a president who stays deadly focused on the real war on terror.

SCHIEFFER: Mr. President?

BUSH: Gosh, I just don’t think I ever said I’m not worried about Osama bin Laden.

It’s kind of one of those exaggerations.

PIERCE: Mr. President, this video suggests otherwise.

sifry + saidy + paul frankenstein

o’reilly is in deep do do

not only is he being sued in a $60 million sexual harrasment case where he


invited a thirtysomething female producer of the Factor to purchase a vibrator, but used a battery-operated one shaped as a “cock” on himself as he talked to her

(as well as told her some interesting things that al franken can expect)

but now his arch enemy jim gilliam has dug up a video of o’reilly discussing sexual harrasment back in march of this year on the Factor where he says that men are “barbarians”:

O’REILLY: In the “Back of the Book” Segment tonight, you may remember a minor tiff was created by feminist Naomi Wolf a few weeks ago when she wrote an article saying one of her Yale professors rubbed her thigh while mentoring her at that college. That set off debate about sexual harassment, which is a problem the world over, no question.

With us now is Dr. Linda Mills, a professor of social work at NYU and author of the book “Insult to Injury: Rethinking Our Responses to Intimate Abuse.”

So you say that women — some of them are using this as a club, this sexual harassment deal sometimes, huh?

LINDA MILLS, PH.D., NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR: Yes, I mean I think what happens is that women are denying, in a sense, their own sexual beings, and this is an opportunity and a time in our culture for women to think about themselves as sexual beings and to use that, their — that identity.

O’REILLY: Yes, but it’s impossible and I’ll tell you why. Men — and I know men real well, being a manly man — are barbarians. They’re just barbarians, OK. They see a good-looking woman. It’s — they’re not respecting their intellect. They’re — you know? And if they get a come- on at all by the woman whom they feel is attractive, then they’re in. So, if you say women have got to be cognizant of their sexuality, that’s going to open doors for all kinds of things women may not be prepared for.

MILLS: Well, that’s absolutely right, and we need to educate women about that very fact, but it doesn’t mean that we need to hold them completely harmless, that they’re always victims, and that if we don’t see the relationship between men and women and what women bring to that relationship, somehow they’re — they never get to…

O’REILLY: But isn’t there a difference between social — socializing and trying to find a mate and trying to get a relationship going and in a workplace or in a college — you know, what Wolf’s contention was with this guy — Bloom, I guess, his name is — took advantage of her when she was a student, and that happens all the time.

MILLS: Absolutely.

O’REILLY: It happens all the time where powerful men see a good- looking student, and they try to make a move. Now, you know, this thing happened 30 years ago, whatever. I think maybe Naomi might have let it go, all right, but how does a woman protect herself against that kind of thing?

MILLS: Well, but what’s different about the Naomi Wolf case and many sexual harassment cases is that they did have a relationship and that right now we don’t recognize the relationship…

— later the conversation got even better —

O’REILLY: I still think the guy abused his position, if it happened, and I kind of believe Wolf. But, look, I think that the sexual harassment thing is used as a club, as I said, by many women, all right. It’s something they have against men, a threat to keep men at bay in a very competitive marketplace.

MILLS: Well, I think — I actually interpret it a little differently, and that is that they use their sexuality in certain ways, and then when they get nervous, they run behind the sort of legal shield of sexual harassment, and that’s the part that’s a problem because I think that women are these sexual beings, and we need to recognize that. That’s a feminist position.

O’REILLY: Some women are. Do you think all women are?

MILLS: Absolutely not.

O’REILLY: I don’t.

MILLS: I completely agree with you.

O’REILLY: You know, there are women who manipulate themselves and use their sexuality to get ahead, all right.

MILLS: Absolutely.

O’REILLY: And then these women will turn around and file a sexual harassment…

MILLS: But shouldn’t we account for that, just that?

O’REILLY: But how do you prove it? It’s very difficult to prove it.

MILLS: Well, it’s hard to prove sexual harassment now as it is, but why not…

O’REILLY: Well, if you grab somebody’s thigh, I mean — if somebody sees it or you…

Let me ask you one more thing. This is really dangerous. It used to be in the workplace that you could make a sexual joke or something. Not anymore, right? You’re crazy if you do that, right?

MILLS: Well, yes, but that’s on both sides. Men and women.

O’REILLY: Oh, I’ve never heard of a woman making a sexual joke and being charged with anything.

MILLS: Well, the irony is that the studies show that men don’t take it seriously, and so they’re less likely to make claims, right?

O’REILLY: Yes, right.

MILLS: But I think that’s true on both sides, and it’s — it has changed, in a sense, the dynamic at work.

O’REILLY: Well, it’s changed my life. I’ll tell you, when I was a thug coming up, I mean I would say almost anything around women, and now I don’t say anything, you know, that could be remotely taken — you know, because, obviously, I’m a big target, and any kind of a thing like that stigmatizes you, whether you’re guilty or not, doesn’t it?

MILLS: Absolutely.

O’REILLY: So it’s — women — that’s a big power source for them, and I think some women use it ruthlessly.

o’reilly appeared on Regis & Kelly this morning where he discussed the case, not once denying that he sexually harrassed his producer (who was a former Bush intern, and therefore probably not a Democrat trying to sling mud), instead said that the $60 million settlement offer was outrageous.

the host of the factor said, “not even the 9/11 victim families got that much.” he added that although he agreed with some of his cohorts who said that taking this on might be the end of his career he said, “enough is enough.”

and still he didnt deny the charges. the author of a new children’s book, o’reilly seemingly only had issues with the price of the settlement.

a cnn/gallup/usa today poll had kerry winning

the debate 52-39. msnbc’s online poll had kerry winning 71-29, cbs’s poll had kerry winning it 39-25 (36% had it as a draw).

but cbs cant be trusted, my gop friends say.

so we go to fox news since theyre fair n balanced

whose internet poll had kerry winning it 55-44.

so basically nobody thinks that bush won this debate


the instapundit

worlds greatest blogger

who says bush won it “hands down”.

and then finds three people who agree with him. and links to noone who disagrees with him.

im shocked.


the president gave his best performance last night. i like how he was emphasizing words in that wonderfully unique way of his.

harkens back to the days when dana carvey would imitate his pappy.

“wouldnt be prudent, wouldnt be prudent.”

its almost like a shatner


those key words on the down beat

and then letting it resonate out there with a confident pause for emphasis.

much like how a change machine has to load up again for a while, resetting, after its dispensed $5 in quarters.

tonight made me realize that i will miss my retarded president

who, the writing is on the wall, is doomed to continue his losing ways and have his ass handed to him in the election in three weeks,

because america isnt as lame as its current leader.


watching the debates tonight showed clearly that yes anyone could be president, but not everyone should be, because when just anyone becomes president, they can fuck shit up a little worse than we ever expected.

you dont have to be in iraq to know that shits fucked

here on the local abc tv station they featured this “undecided” voter who was grading each question.

before the debates he said he wasnt crazy about bush and was definately not crazy about kerry either.

but the thing that made him decide to vote for kerry was when bush looked in the camera and told middle class workers that they had more money today and they were doing better because of him.

Bush: You know, he talks to the workers. Let me talk to the workers.

You’ve got more money in your pocket as a result of the tax relief we passed and he opposed.

If you have a child, you got a $1,000 child credit. That’s money in your pocket.

If you’re married, we reduced the marriage penalty. The code ought to encourage marriage, not discourage marriage.

We created a 10 percent bracket to help lower-income Americans. A family of four making $40,000 received about $1,700 in tax relief.

It’s your money. The way my opponent talks, he said, We’re going to spend the government’s money. No, we’re spending your money.

the instantly decided voter told the abc reporter, “im not doing better, and if bush thinks things are better for people right now then he’s seriously out of touch.”

which is ironic since it seemed that bushies new strategy was to drive home the fact that kerry is “out of the mainstream.”

as if being out of the mainstream has ever hurt either man in their political careers.

who knew canadian drugs and health care would be such an achillies heel to the president when everyone thought kerry would be able to waltz right into the white house due to the quagmire in iraq, no wmd, no obl, and the record-breaking deficit?

but somehow health care was the sleeper hold, the secret weapon, the the tiny gspot of the death star and lynchpin to its destruction. witness:

KERRY: The reason health care costs are getting higher, one of the principal reasons is that this administration has stood in the way of common-sense efforts that would have reduced the costs. Let me give you a prime example.

In the Senate we passed the right of Americans to import drugs from Canada. But the president and his friends took it out in the House, and now you don’t have that right. The president blocked you from the right to have less expensive drugs from Canada.

We also wanted Medicare to be able to negotiate bulk purchasing. The VA does that. The VA provides lower-cost drugs to our veterans. We could have done that in Medicare.

Medicare is paid for by the American taxpayer. Medicare belongs to you. Medicare is for seniors, who many of them are on fixed income, to lift them out of poverty.

But rather than help you, the taxpayer, have lower cost, rather than help seniors have less expensive drugs, the president made it illegal – illegal – for Medicare to actually go out and bargain for lower prices.

Result: $139 billion windfall profit to the drug companies coming out of your pockets. That’s a large part of your 17 percent increase in Medicare premiums.

When I’m president, I’m sending that back to Congress and we’re going to get a real prescription drug benefit.

yes i liked the tony soprano analogy. if you missed it, the president was asked, “what do you say to someone in this country who has lost his job to someone overseas who’s being paid a fraction of what that job paid here in the United States?”

to which dubya said he would tell him to go back to junior college.

Bush: “… education is how to help the person who’s lost a job. Education is how to make sure we’ve got a workforce that’s productive and competitive.

Got four more years, I’ve got more to do to continue to raise standards, to continue to reward teachers and school districts that are working, to emphasize math and science in the classrooms, to continue to expand Pell Grants to make sure that people have an opportunity to start their career with a college diploma.

And so the person you talked to, I say, here’s some help, here’s some trade adjustment assistance money for you to go a community college in your neighborhood, a community college which is providing the skills necessary to fill the jobs of the 21st century. And that’s what I would say to that person.”

to which sen. kerry said

KERRY:I want you to notice how the president switched away from jobs and started talking about education principally.

Let me come back in one moment to that, but I want to speak for a second, if I can, to what the president said about fiscal responsibility.

Being lectured by the president on fiscal responsibility is a little bit like Tony Soprano talking to me about law and order in this country.


This president has taken a $5.6 trillion surplus and turned it into deficits as far as the eye can see. Health-care costs for the average American have gone up 64 percent; tuitions have gone up 35 percent; gasoline prices up 30 percent; Medicare premiums went up 17 percent a few days ago; prescription drugs are up 12 percent a year.

But guess what, America? The wages of Americans have gone down. The jobs that are being created in Arizona right now are paying about $13,700 less than the jobs that we’re losing.

so much more to say, so please feel free to leave your opinions in the comments.
