"We're going to get the governor," O'Reilly said, "whether she comes in or she doesn't. Well ask her directly."
What will he ask? He'll ask why she allowed the atheist sign in the Capitol alongside Xmas displays.
We know what that means: O'Reilly will send one of his pencil-dicked producers to stick a microphone in the governor's schnoz shouting do-you-still-beat-your-wife questions.
He does it to attempt to embarrass or frighten politicians or bureaucrats, or personal enemies into a mea culpa, or changing a policy he disagrees with for which he can later take credit.
Publisher Arianna Huffington and PBS' Bill Moyers, got jumped and both handed him his ass.
We knew Washington would be the scene of a battle in the War On Xmas, but little did we know it would be The Battle of the Bulge.
The atheist sign has pumped up the volume to eleven.
On tonight's show, O'Reilly grilled Seattle blogger/activist David Goldstein who doesn't have cable and does not know to be very, very afraid of the blustering bilge pump. He looked stiff like they'd bolted him to the back of the chair, but he was actually relaxed, and gave what arguments were allowed in the O'Reilly-controlled atmosphere which is more lecture-series than debate.
Goldy laughed in Billo's face, more than once as Washington was accused of being "worse than California." That is the worst insult a state can get on the Fox News Channel.
(That, despite Billo referred to him has "Mr. Goldman" -- Goldberg, Goldblatt, those damn Jew-names are all the same anyway, Mr. O'Brien -- Goldstein did well for himself and "the far-left" out here in The People's Republic).
We expected Goldy to do well, but were disappointed that Seattle trial lawyer, Anne Bremner who made herself available to Fox News once again to fellate Billo, and diss the city, and try to separate herself on national teevee from the community that's given her so much. Bremner said that despite saying she knows and respects the governor, she lamely distilled Washington to an embarrassing place of "sea turtle protests" and "naked bicyclists," and helped feed the beginnings of another of O'Reilly's intra-coastal for-entertainment-only feuds.
She might have stuck up for Gregoire who's ultimately responsible with what happens at GA, but probably hasn't spent much time reviewing the grounds policies, what with the dire economics of state government. There is a history of Jews and Christians fighting over these spaces, so there is a First Amendment case to be made. (What is it about blonde lawyers from Seattle? Lise Wiehl, another former Seattle attorney has yes-ed (or whatever) to fame and marriage to celebrity lawyer Mickey Sherman doing O'Reilly as a Fox legal anaylst).
If Governor Gregoire doesn't eventually take O'Reilly's call, she can expect a visit. In the small town of Olympia, the governor can be approached. O'Reilly's boys don't care if they're ignored -- they're satisfied with a shot of a victim's back as they catcall what they presume to be embarrassing questions.
Governor Gregoire, who is a world class scrapper, can handle Bill O'Reilly.
