Rachel Maddow destroys Bill O’Reilly’s ratings strawman

| »

Urgent memo to right-wing TV pundits: Stop attacking Rachel Maddow. Seriously, just stop it. You can’t win. She is far too intelligent, savvy and clever to fall for your dishonest swipes, and any attempts at smearing or otherwise refuting her will inevitably result in her tearing you apart and picking her teeth with your splintered bones. Cue her schadenfreudelicious response to Bill O’Reilly’s foolish strawman where he attempts to rebuke Maddow’s criticism of Fox “News”’s role in the Shirley Sherrod affair by bragging, as though he were a schoolchild talking about how strong his daddy was, that his ratings are higher than Maddow’s. Seriously … that’s just ducking into the punch.

Now we must wonder how long before O’Reilly is able to sit without wincing.
