    You think I watched the video? LOL. I'm angry enough without listening to him speak ever again.

    Let me compare O'Reilly to Olberman. O'Reilly, like Coulter, often starts with some bogus foundation, but his conclusions based on that are logical. Olberman never presents a logical argument (they are emotional "anti-this/that" statements). He never provides a feasible alternative, only "What a Republican idiot like usual HA HA."

    I found it annoying that he called 9/11 sacrosanct. And emotional appeals, which his rant was loaded with, get under my skin. He is correct that Republicans have used 9/11 as a political tool. Duh.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

I'm sorry but this is the kind of action that is needed to counteract the horseshit that is being fed to us from conservative newscasters.
    He's a dominant feeler.

    He was doing the same thing in reverse, though. What would have people thought if Republicans, during their quadrennial convention in early September, didn't mention 9/11 or show images from it? God, I am so pissed that this is making me defend Republicans.
