It’s come to this: Mary Katharine Ham talks MILFs on O’Reilly

posted at 9:28 pm on December 5, 2007 by Allahpundit

Whatever else the Factor may be, it’s never dull.

Anyone believe him when he says he doesn’t know what “MILF” stands for?

To answer your question.

No. I don’t.

CrimsonFisted on December 5, 2007 at 9:36 PM

One would think that someone of MKH’s investigative capability could find something legitimate to talk about concerning the internet rather than high school boys and their fantasies and a movie acronym! How about Al Qaeda and their proliferation on the world wide web? MKH bills herself the “internet cop” and this is the best she can do?

IntheNet on December 5, 2007 at 9:36 PM

MILFs on O’Reilly

He wishes! (rimshot)

Seriously though, he claims American Pie invented that term… Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it’s been around much longer.

Don’t blame MKH.

Are you drunk? It’s O’Reilly’s show. He decides the subjects for discussion. She has no choice.

Blarney spoken in the No Spine Zone. I’d rather watch Megyn Kelly

MrC_5150 on December 5, 2007 at 9:40 PM

He decides the subjects for discussion.

Sorry… I did not know that… it certainly doesn’t come across that way!!!

IntheNet on December 5, 2007 at 9:40 PM

Every time you post a pic of MKH on O’Reilly, I think it reads “Communist and Editor of Townhall.com” I need a new prescription!

robblefarian on December 5, 2007 at 9:41 PM

Don’t blame MKH.

Michelle on December 5, 2007 at 9:37 PM

Yes, he didn’t use my pithy letter than whenever the Zone started to wobble like a tired top, he gave it a spin with something salacious. Maybe it was the word ‘salacious’ that got it tossed.

IntheNet on December 5, 2007 at 9:36 PM

If I’m not mistaken, Fox or O’R picks the topics.

amerpundit on December 5, 2007 at 9:44 PM

Wait O reily brings up a subject and doesnt even know what that subject is ?

Why even mention it if your not even sure what “it” is ?

William Amos on December 5, 2007 at 9:46 PM

If I’m not mistaken, Fox or O’R picks the topics

I guess I was mistaken.. with MKH I always assumed she picked the topics; if Bill is picking the topics now I understand the hesitancy. There’s quite a bit to report on concerning the net that is above obscene acronyms. Perhaps Bill needs a reminder….

IntheNet on December 5, 2007 at 9:48 PM

Justbe glad O Reilly didnt get his hands on some Planned Parenthood material he could have been asking her about “Golden Showers”

William Amos on December 5, 2007 at 9:50 PM

Well, remember this is the guy who wanted to give a massage to a woman with a falafel (he got confused with loofah). On the other hand, yeah I bet he likies his porn. I’m putting him in the “gonzo” camp.

RW Wacko on December 5, 2007 at 9:51 PM

I want to see O’Reilly on RedEye…on the episode after Brit Hume. FUN!

SouthernGent on December 5, 2007 at 9:52 PM

haha i was watching and laughing the whole time.

trailortrash on December 5, 2007 at 9:57 PM

They work for the MSM O’Reilly. Most of them for your Boss Bill.

TheBigOldDog on December 5, 2007 at 10:02 PM

In Seaside Heights New Jersey, on the boardwalk, you can find some of the shops with t-shirts, underpants, and children clothing with this print. Kind of a shame, it used to be a great family place to go.

But since they started busing in the New Yorkers, [no offense AP], but Down the Shore has gone downhill fast. Just like Corny Island. I say it’s a problem due to this.

Kini on December 5, 2007 at 10:04 PM

I don’t think she has much to worry about from the paparazzi if she goes on vacation, I’m sure she looks just fine in a bathing suit.

striper1 on December 5, 2007 at 10:12 PM

I think that MKH was a little annoyed at the beginning or her spot on BOR, tonight. Also, he ended the show tonight stating that she was famous now, as if he was the reason. Could be, MKH may decide she don’t need no stinkin’ BOR.

d1carter on December 5, 2007 at 10:17 PM

MKH and Dennis Miller are the only reasons to watch Bill’s show on Wednesday. While I still miss MM on the Factor, there are still plenty of places in which to catch her brilliance.

Of course Bill knew what MILF stood for prior to doing this edition of the show. Why he would say otherwise mystifies me. For a smart man, that was sure mighty dumb.

itzWicks on December 5, 2007 at 10:18 PM

No, and wow. What a bad idea for an ad campaign.

Jaibones on December 5, 2007 at 10:21 PM

This segment is beginning to border on pop culture propaganda. But MKH is always a treat I’m not willing to do without. Mary is becoming a big star. And that’s cool.

The acronym MILF is popular for only one reason… because certain MILFs and MILF wanna-bees are very proud to bear that cross. 4yr olds with “my mom’s a milf” t-shirts are as thick as bees on honey in certain digs so-to-speak.

Griz on December 5, 2007 at 10:21 PM

BOR was right about only one thing in this segment:

Mary Katharine IS a big star.

Brains and beauty too; plus the everlasting patience to put up with O’Reilly’s constant pomposity and boorishness.

And, YES, he absolutely positively knew what it meant.

Always Right on December 5, 2007 at 10:24 PM

Sometimes I think O’Reilly just plays dumb to fortify his reputation as a square. You know, to protect his “street-cred” with the AARP.

forest on December 5, 2007 at 10:31 PM

protect his “street-cred” with the AARP.

forest on December 5, 2007 at 10:31 PM

ROFLMAO! That’s great!

TheBigOldDog on December 5, 2007 at 10:41 PM

… my newspaper column about the loss of privacy, which is a constitutional right…

I believe ‘the right to privacy ‘ was ‘found’ in the constitution. I’m no legal scholar, but I would guess BOR is not a strict constructionist. I don’t believe Bill could be a GOP pick for SCOTUS.

Heh… the thought.

silverfox on December 5, 2007 at 11:00 PM

True, but then again, O’Reilly was talking about privacy rights being violated by individuals, not government. Strict constructionist or no, just about everyone who’s made it through at least one year of law school without flunking out can agree that even the rights that are expressly guaranteed in the Constitution (save the rare exceptions of every citizen’s 13th Amendment right not to be enslaved and every bottle of liquor’s 21st Amendment right not to bootlegged) are good only against government, not individuals. I don’t believe Bill could be anybody’s pick for SCOTUS.

Xrlq on December 5, 2007 at 11:17 PM

Well, he obviously didn’t know what falafel meant…so maybe it’s plausible…

dont taze me bro on December 5, 2007 at 11:21 PM

O’Reilly is now talking MILFS.

Take that man, kick him out, and put a solid, decent woman in his place. Preferably a mother with some self-respect, experience, and a decorum. And, preferably, the last name “Malkin.”

BKennedy on December 5, 2007 at 11:26 PM

At the end O’R tells MKH to be careful of cameras while she’s on vacation.
Is that dolt calling MKH some kind of fatass?
Dolt.

Stephen M on December 6, 2007 at 12:17 AM

All I know is that fans of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front must get awfully frustrated – and distracted – when they google for news updates…

Hannibal Smith on December 6, 2007 at 12:17 AM

Anyone believe him when he says he doesn’t know what “MILF” stands for?

Ummm…I didn’t know.

Connie on December 6, 2007 at 12:52 AM

I believe him.
Bill’s older than my dad but I had to Google it just a few months ago when it came up on, if I’m not mistaken, this very site. That was a traumatic search-engine experience. Not everyone is up on the Web lingo, esp the more salty acronyms.

inviolet on December 6, 2007 at 12:56 AM

This is your random and somewhat ironic factoid for the day – did you know there is a Muslim rebel group in the Philippines called MILF – the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

CP on December 6, 2007 at 2:36 AM

I imagine there are a lot of things BOR doesn’t know.

I just wish terryannonline were here to hotten up this thread with her mad writing skillz!

saint kansas on December 6, 2007 at 5:12 AM

I actually had to look up ‘MILF’. It stands for Hillary Clinton: “Massively Incompetent Lady Fool.”

MaiDee on December 6, 2007 at 6:17 AM

My job title is HMIC which is Head Mother F@#$%^ In Charge. So what is so wrong with MILF?

We can spend hours coming up with responses to acronyms.

TSA Thousand Standing Around Taking Stuff Away

Let’s have more fun than trying to chastise someone for using and acronym to get the attention they need to make people notice their new program-Iamus alright with it.

MSGTAS on December 6, 2007 at 8:09 AM

Maybe, like Bill, I am at heart an old-fashioned prude, but I agree that ad campaigns sporting logos like MILF are low brow and vulgar. I don’t have kids, but I’d hate to be a father with a daughter or son who sees and hears this stuff and says to me, “Daddy, what’s a [pick a term]?”

It’s everywhere. It denies children the right to be innocent for the time of their lives when they need to be children. It demeans men and women who refute this kind of lifestyle, for whatever reason.

As re the invasion of privacy angle, you can take the “Well, you’re a big star who flashes her boobs in films, yet you take exception to a few bikini shots?!” Or, you can take the Carol Burnett/Tom Selleck point-of-view and go after these stalkers (which is what paparazzi are). I am with the latter group.

The bottom line is that social dignity is no longer in the back seat of contemporary society…it’s bound and gagged in the trunk, and everyone loses because of this.

That’s why some societies have red-light districts: they’re no more or less smutty than any other, they just keep it cordoned off so it can be readily avoided if desired.

I have enough problems with TV; if I had a kid, they would be nowhere near the internet unless I was sitting next to them.

Here is the response from Spirit when I brought to there attention

(Binal Thaker) – 12/03/2007 02:47 PM
Dear xxxxxx xxxxxxxx,

Thank you for writing in and letting us know your feelings and thoughts about one of our new marketing campaigns. I apologize that you find this campaign of concern. There are a lot of edgier campaigns out in the marketplace and in popular culture today. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback and people are taking advantage of our low fares for our many destinations across the Caribbean.

Thank you again for taking the time to write us and we look forward to serving you on a future flight.

Sincerely,

Binal Thaker
Corporate Consumer Relations
Spirit Airlines

So it looks like an intentional reference

tmitsss on December 6, 2007 at 8:31 AM

I don’t doubt that o’Reilly didn’t know the meaning of the acronym, except… after the clip from American Pie aired, he’d have to know what it means, right? Surely he knew he’d be getting its meaning on the clip? If he saw the clip beforehand, then he’s a liar. Of course, I have no way of knowing if he pre-screened it himself or if he even heard the clip while he was on the set, so I can’t come right out and say that he definitely lied.

I didn’t know its meaning until our last post on said term a month or two back, the one with the video showing toddlers’ t-shirts with “My mommy’s a (-)” emblazoned on them. I still bemoan my loss of innocence from subsequently Googling the term… barf.

flutejpl on December 6, 2007 at 9:27 AM

As for Jennifer Love Hewitt, the press need to get a life. So she’s got cheek rolls or perhaps her bikini’s a bit too tight. Of course anyone, especially a star, would want to err in that direction when it comes to sizing swimwear; the idea is that it will stay on while splashing in the water.

She’s still a beautiful woman. End of story. The world would be a better place if the paparazzi would report the good news out of Iraq for a change. Fat chance, I know.

flutejpl on December 6, 2007 at 9:31 AM

MILF: Mark Levin Is Fantastic!

BOR, FYI, the right to privacy is not in the Constitution.

Sensei Ern on December 6, 2007 at 9:45 AM

I don’t find it difficult to believe Bill didn’t know what MILF meant when the story first came to his attention. He must have known it’s meaning when the segment aired and he likely played the role of interviewer and let MKH handle the explanation for the viewers.

Diego on December 6, 2007 at 9:46 AM

HILARIOUS!

Almost as funny as the time when we tried to explain to my grandmom the meaning of “morning wood”.

budorob on December 6, 2007 at 10:41 AM

Ah, you kids and your stupid slang.

RobCon on December 6, 2007 at 1:43 PM

forest on December 5, 2007 at 10:31 PM

Me too. Every now and then he’ll slip and mention how some MSM outlet messed up when all they had to do was a little internet research. In the next breath he’ll play the fool and act like he’s never even been online.

Hannibal Smith on December 6,

That’s what pops into MY mind each and every time I see or recall the acronym MILF.Just before the bad taste in my mouth reminds me of the unrespectable women who proudly bear the cross. Guess a few months in Zamboanga or Cotabato has that effect on everyone, eh…?
