Video: The O’Reilly Factor, so easy a caveman could host it!

posted at 12:55 pm on March 9, 2007 by Ian

O’Reilly received an email from a watcher who wrote: “Hosting the O’Reilly Factor is so easy, a caveman could do it.”

How about a cavewoman?

Heh.

Update: It’s a joke, as in not to be taken seriously in the least bit.

Ian, are you suggesting the Boss is a cavewoman?

rightside on March 9, 2007 at 1:01 PM

Doesn’t geico just love free press like that? Wonder if the writer was a geico employee?

the green room will be serving Roast Duck with mango salsa

Defector01 on March 9, 2007 at 1:06 PM

If the Boss is a cavewomen, y’all hang on til I can get my club!!!!!!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on March 9, 2007 at 1:08 PM

Is that Fred Flintstone next to Michelle?

(I took that from another commenter)

Theworldisnotenough on March 9, 2007 at 1:08 PM

Michelle can’t be a cave-woman… she doesn’t have enough Arab genes or any facial hair.

The Geico metrosexual Neanderthals are prime suspects for the reason for their extintion.

Did Ian win the lottery?

PS. They are producing a pilot for a cavemen series based on the Geico characters. We’ll see. BYW, check out

Those cavemen have some nice digs.

I’m sure there will be an episode where Ann Coulter uses the word “troglidyte” in reference to a presidential candidate and a firestorm ensues.

thirteen28 on March 9, 2007 at 1:34 PM

Yeah, are you suggesting Michelle is a cavewoman? Them’s fighting words, you know…

jaleach on March 9, 2007 at 1:37 PM

Helen Thomas… now there is a cave woman… or at least she’s old enough to remember them.

VIVA CAVEMEN!

On the other hand, you could go with Progressive Insurance. Peter B. Lewis needs some more money so he can match George Soros’s Americans Coming Together and MoveOn.org donations. And with whatever’s left over he can build some more Jetsons nightmares in town to scare the cavemen.

saint kansas on March 9, 2007 at 1:40 PM

IAN, i hate to be part of the “i am offended police” but please could you explain your reference to cavewoman in this post?

mainmann on March 9, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Michelle as cavewoman .. got me thinkin’ about Betty Rubble .. but then I remembered that Rosie played Betty in the Flintsones movie. What a crime that was.

Somebody at Progressive just got fired.

Nice.

billy on March 9, 2007 at 1:55 PM

I must be a cavewoman, because I don’t get the joke.

Michelle on March 9, 2007 at 2:08 PM

Perhaps Michelle already gave Ian the club.

Hosting the Countdown, with Keith Olbermann, is so easy a caveman is doing it.

WANTED:: Job at very successful high-traffic conservative blog. Employer with a similar sense of humor preferred. Call 555-5555 and ask for “Ian”…

Bob Owens on March 9, 2007 at 2:15 PM

Of course Michelle is not a cavewoman. You can argue she is a better host than he is.

Ian on March 9, 2007 at 2:34 PM

Mmmmmmmmmmm………… Helen Thomas in a cave….. naked…… tastes like Mango Salsa!

MMMmmmmmmm Mmmmmmmm MMmmmmmmm!

Few people realize that Michelle was a model back in the caveman days.

Bye Ian…

Lovely. Thanks.

Did someone say, “Yabba Dabba Doo!!!”

BigOrangeAxe on March 9, 2007 at 2:56 PM

Me, I’m waiting to see if “they” will make a sitcom for “Smilin’ Bob” from the Enzyte.com commercials.

kevcad on March 9, 2007 at 3:05 PM

Actually, that’s “Yabba Dabba Drool !!!!

(I apologize for objectifying women and will be checking into rehab shortly)

omnipotent on March 9, 2007 at 3:11 PM

Ian, I have really enjoyed your posts. You will be missed. I think the still capture on the O’Reilly video should be enough to salvage your job.

Valiant on March 9, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Ian, I hear CNN is hiring.

Maxx on March 9, 2007 at 3:47 PM

I’ve seen enough Yakuza movies to know that at a time like this, it’s best to chop off a finger and give it to the boss.

rw on March 9, 2007 at 4:01 PM

Michelle on March 9, 2007 at 2:08 PM

That was a very modernist statement of you to say; I’m offended!

Wow…that may have been the mother of all bad ideas dude.

Malpaso on March 9, 2007 at 4:17 PM

Hey Ian. Like you, I directed an insanely clever (in my opinion) gibe at my boss recently. He didn’t get it either.

Here’s a tip. Food Lion has soup on sale, 10 cans for $5. Remember though, unemployment payments don’t last forever.

BacaDog on March 9, 2007 at 4:23 PM

you had to post an update… I feel for you Ian. Some people will always be a little slow.

You might have to watch it a few times to get it. Focus on the person who sent the viewer mail.

Oh man is that funny!

HAHA – I want someone to write into oreilly as:

Seymour Butts
Mike Rotch

Lots of other ideas from Bart Simpson!

Whaddya mean a caveman could do it?!?!?

A caveman does do it!!

urbancenturion on March 9, 2007 at 5:28 PM

Is that Fred Flintstone next to Michelle?

(I took that from another commenter)

Theworldisnotenough on March 9, 2007 at 1:08 PM

Indeed. I was the original poster that compared Enrique to Fred Flintstone. (The resemblance IS uncanny.)

I guess maybe Ian figured that since she (Michelle) was interviewing a cave-man (Enrique, the Fred Flinstone look alike), that this makes her a cave-woman (as well). NOTHING could be FURTHER from the TRUTH (BTW, you can count on me to defend you Michelle). If anything, the whole episode was more reminiscent of the “The Jetsons meet the Flintstones” feature film. If fact, Michelle is far more advanced than most of you schmucks that are reading this blog right now.

Go ahead. Say something nasty to me now. As the Monty Python frenchmen would say:
“I fart in your general direction!”

CyberCipher on March 9, 2007 at 6:18 PM

Michelle’s no cavewoman – too much class.

But whenever I see her on O’Reilly’s show, I can feel myself devolving into a caveman

Spurius Ligustinus on March 9, 2007 at 6:39 PM

The fact that people were actually taking this seriously makes me question the humor of many of the posters here.

Nonfactor on March 9, 2007 at 8:11 PM

If the cavewoman is Michelle, she could certainly do it!

By the way Michelle, I’m a talkradio-junkie and the airwaves needs a daily dose of 3 steady hours of Malkin!!!!

Joshua P. Allem on March 9, 2007 at 8:18 PM

There never were any cavemen or cavewomen. Unless you count bigfoot.

Mojave Mark on March 10, 2007 at 12:09 AM

I don’t know. . .Does Usama count as a caveman?

Of course Michelle is not a cavewoman. You can argue she is a better host than he is.

Ian on March 9, 2007 at 2:34 PM

Ah! Ian takes the “Factor” viewer’s e-mail suggestion to mean that anyone who hosts the show is a caveman. He then posts video of Michelle subbing as host on “The Factor.”

Ergo, she is a cavewoman.

Ian: Keep practicing the Allah-esque snark. Eventually you’ll get it right.

Ali-Bubba on March 10, 2007 at 9:00 AM

The O’Reilly Factor, so easy a caveman could host it!

No one has said it yet, so I will:
That is so condescending! I think someone woke up on the wrong side of the rock!

Ian, are you suggesting the Boss is a cavewoman?

NOT that there’s anything WRONG with that!!!!!

jjjen on March 11, 2007 at 7:03 AM

Well… she DOES tend to club people… verbally I mean.

The Bible describes the truth as a sword. I think with MM it’s a club. Why a club? Cuz it’s dull… it’ll hurt more.
