Bill O'Reilly didn't wanna be a cowboy! But he was (allegedly) approached to be one, sort of. He claims he could have been a rough, tough, rugged, cigarette-smoking, cancer-peddling Marlboro Man.

Bill O'Reilly:

"While I was covering the News in Denver, I was approached by a modeling agency to be the Marlboro guy dressed as a cowboy! I'm from Long Island...

But smoking marijuana is quite the opposite. That’s on the rise, as pot use is considered cool in many circles, and above all it is political correct."

Who's kidding whom here? O'Reilly couldn't have been a Marlboro Man even if he wanted to. No cowboy hat would have ever fit over that big ego head of his.

H/t: Talking Points Memo.

    Oh Bill. Nice try. You near a horse with a cigarette? I'm still trying to imagine being a high school student listening to you explain history. I was laughing during the View yesterday when you called yourself 'a historian and a journalist' while promoting your latest book. Maybe you'd better read the reviews of your previous 'history' tomes...they aren't real impressed with your 'facts.'
