I didn't think they'd be finding this level of Regressive Righteousness so handily, and at the deep end of decades of political fencing.

A month that appeared to hold a 'wild, wild west' extravaganza with badder-ass arms and bullets, a lynch flash-mob, military tanks and then by gawd shared a little whiskey to Boot at the golf club to unwind for an impossibly short time.

Deal. Done.

But uh oh - the president handling some new and massive idjitry … Bill O'Reilly had to shut his luxe vacation down and lumber back home. To talk some more smack about President Barack Obama

BLO'Reilly had to leave his vacation manse and demand that his driver proceed to to step on it … wheels up!

Billo O'Really(?)/ O'Reilly of Fvx Noise, Pontificates On the Wild, Wild Weird

Who but Bill O'Reilly in character would expound for an ear-bleeding amount of  Unfiltered Hate and its superbly derisive condescension?

O'Reilly … one of the most distasteful of the bitter dregs Fvx Nation busily crafts , it is a vergl cottage industry … I'ms sure the GOP ostentatious manner. It's rather certain  about to employ him at Walmart or something that would keep you on a more mellow frequency.

I fancy the suspect he does that smug 'Word of the Day' bit less for conservative sheeple and more of an Idjuts Hubris.

Apologies for the FVX,  but O'Reilly also brayed at length about his "Moral Instructions For Black People", from Media Matters:

Bill O'Reilly's proclivity for using tragedies and racial disparities to lecture the black community was on full display in the wake of the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager at the hands of police in Ferguson, Missouri.

The St. Louis suburb has erupted in demonstrations following the death of Michael Brown, a black, unarmed teenager allegedly gunned down by police while he tried to run away. The unrest has prompted Brown's parents and civil rights leaders to call for peaceful protests and justice over the wrongful death.

On the August 12 edition of The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly attributed Brown's father's calls for justice to "talking through an emotional prism," adding that "many, many African Americans believe" that Brown was murdered "without knowing the facts." He wondered if the black community deserves criticism for viewing Brown's death as an injustice.

Now they could do Monster Mash at The Factor … Billo and the inevitable Posse might be considering O'Reilly in the West Wing, after deciding to belly up to the bar like real men and throw back a cocktail or five -- then hurl his hat in the ring of presidential material …

Marc Lamont Hill on the Non-Existence of Post-Racism

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

who are these people
Fantastic group out in social media called "We survived Bush, You'll survive Obama". Brings a big grin every time I see them post a doozie, because it's something you'd image Socrates saying to an angst-ridden group of students at his feet … bemoaning the perfidy of leadership.

The folks that brought you Creationism also think we are in a Post Racial/Racist/Racism world. Not that the GOP wasn't full on taking advantage of race in politics already, the Tea Party and Citizens United and other SCROTUS Regressive decisions just upped their game in terms of legal camouflage.

Marc Lamont Hill is well aware that politics has become blood sport in 21st century America, not that it was ever a Cotillion. One look at John-John Kennedy Junior staunchly saluting the crowd as his Mama had told him he must, and we Dems recall precisely how high the stakes are for helping Everyman in the U.S.A.

screwedyouall

As Laffy so often points our here at the Carnival, the Regressive, ridiculous Right takes every chance, and 'creates' the ones that don't arrive honestly, to Blame the Black Guy. If you think that is liberal whining, allow us to disabuse you of that misunderstanding.

CNN had a panel on Newsroom that went at it directly: Is the President Always To Blame? The incredible Marc Lamont Hill was on hand to debate the role of race and the Tea Party with Ben Ferguson, as he has done in the past with Bill O'Reilly (vid below) and Hill's passion and reason led to a look at a remarkable address he just gave at NCORE.

I'd choose any five minutes you have to jump in, enjoy. It's a lot of wisdom from a youngish man, and he opened with sadness from Maya Angelou's recent passing. If you have to bookmark it for time constraints, come on back.

Lamont famously took on Ann Coulter about who is allowed to use the N Word on CNN, earlier this season.

And just because it is so fun to watch O'Reilly get hammered, Here's Marc Lamont Hill explaining Tea Party racism to BillO.

Bill O'Reilly Excoriates Fellow Fox News Boobs

Rivera OReilly

Bill O'Reilly of The O'Reilly Factor generally doesn't mince words. He misuses them. He misconstrues them. He even abuses them. I'll go so far as to accuse him of lying from time to time. So it's certainly amusing when he chooses to sum up his fellow blowhards on Fox News Network. He gave his assessment of his cohort noisemakers to Fox stalwart Geraldo Rivera last night and it was covered by The Daily Beast:

Answering a question from fellow Foxer Geraldo Rivera—does the right-leaning network cut President Obama enough slack? Does it treat him fairly?

To put it into perspective, here's how O'Reilly treats the President. He says President Obama is "clueless, feckless, insular, indifferent to facts that contradict his lefty belief system, and otherwise incompetent."

So someone who's so opinionated with his assessments of the President might be a bit more "conservative" with his co-workers. But after all, this is Bill O. :

If you watch Fox & Friends, [Steve] Doocy is an Obama-basher. He bashes Obama like clockwork. But the other two—Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] and Brian [Kilmeade]—they’d rather whip up a soufflé.”

Bill thinks morning hosts Bill Hemmer and Jenna Lee “have no ideology.”

When it comes to the on camera talent involved on, “Outnumbered or Outsmarted, Bill gave a dismissive shrug. Basically he's not a fan.

For the 3 PM offering, O'Reilly labels Shepard Smith as a liberal.” He added that Cavuto, hosted by Neal Cavuto, “is a business show…He’s not an Obama fan.”

Following that comes the Factor's assessment of the quintet of hosts on The Five -- "they don’t like the president so much"… At 6,there's Bret Baier. Big Bill says he’s not anti-Obama.

“Then you have Greta [van Susteren], who’s a liberal. At 8 you have me. I’m tough on everybody. At 9 you have Megyn [Kelly]. Again, not an ideologue…Then you have the Republican show, Hannity, at 10”

I sure would love to see the reception Bill gets today when he shows up to the studios. I'm confident he's going to get more cold shoulders than congratulatory pats. He might even get called into the principal's office (Roger Ailes) to caution him to tone it down a bit.

In baseball it was Manny being Manny. At Fox, it's Bill being Bill. No difference. Both are crazy. Perhaps I give Manny the advantage though. He hit a lot more home runs than Bill.

Bing, Bing, Bing -- America's Toast If Hillary Clinton Becomes President

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Hillary

We all know one of the most hysterical pieces of political satire came when Saturday Night Live had Tina Fey come out and read a speech as then Veep candidate Sarah Palin, exactly as delivered by the Alaska Governor. Fey didn't change a word and it brought the house down with laughter.

SNL, here's your next "exactly as is" moment -- only this time it's with Bill O'Reilly. He couldn't possibly be topped, not even with Stephen Colbert doing the narration. Just pure O'Reilly taking on women and Hillary Clinton in particular is priceless.

Take a look. You can't believe Bill with his "Bibbidy-Bobbidy-Boo mentality.

Bill O'Reilly: I could have been the Marlboro Man (VIDEO)

marlboro man

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.

Written by guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:

How to win back the liberal Liberal amorè of  '08 and  properly bitch-slap the Regressive Asshattery --- deliver one fell swoop of satire from Thirty Rock. Just picture it. A confident, relaxed Barack Obama takes the mic and croons a few bars of " I'm-m-m ... so fed up with you … killin' every damn thing the country needs me to do … it ain't nothin' but Boo-Hoo-Hoo … and not just from Bar-fly Bo(eh)ner ...

And is then joined by the dramatically back-lit, unprecedented musical host Fantasy Gaggle of Gaga, Bono, The Boss, Beyoncè,  Aretha, The (remaining) Beatles, Page & Plant, Jagger & Richards,  Madonna and Mister Wonder.

Web-snark gem 'Between Two Ferns' was a particular favorite of hipster Malia Obama, First Teen ... so when her Dad caved and delighted his daughters by being gamely swatted around by Zach Galifanekis, that whole 'Mom jeans' idiocy got returned to sender in A-lass-ka.

Cue Fvx News. Hair ablaze, the conservative punditry and media minions sang a scolding Greek chorus of 'The Dignity of the Office".  Are you effing kidding The Free World? You want to see undignified?  -- here you go --

The president is going to the wall to get the message to we hard-headed People that healthcare insurance reform IS underway and there's a REAL deadline at the end of this month to enroll via the ACA. Maybe Republicans can spend their days blocking unemployment insurance and debating the degree of Lindsey Graham's ambiguous gay-hood, but President Dude has a day job!

Enjoy Lizz Winstead et al on Up with Steve Kornacki  and their comedic convo on the topic.

This just in from Variety Thursday: President Obama Defends Doing Funny or Die’s ‘Between Two Ferns’

ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd on Thursday asked Obama about criticism that Abraham Lincoln would not have stooped to such humor. Obama replied that “if you read back on Lincoln, he loved telling the occasional bawdy joke and being out among regular folk.” He added that “one of the hardest things about being president is being in this bubble that is artificial and unless you make a conscious effort, you start sounding like some Washington stiff.”

The Grumpy Old Geezer Party and middle-schooler Lipton Brigade canonized Über-Con Ron Ron,  a B movie actor who did standup with (genuine talent) Bob Hope -- but damn and deride a man of principle going to the mat of self-embarrassment as a Dad and a leader. One who actually gives a phuque about The People to reach out to the generation that's literally our future. 

Keep right on that flight plan, Regressive Republicans of Yore. Your bloated hypocritical underbelly is about as attractive to the future Makers as the thought of reverting to dial-up.
