If you had this turd barking at you from behind the camera, you’d be crabby too. Content warning.

That’s evil. And really funny.

Jaibones on May 19, 2008 at 10:52 AM

Let’s do this! C’mon!

saltydogg14 on May 19, 2008 at 10:56 AM

Could have been funnier.

echosyst on May 19, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Genius…

Hoodlumman on May 19, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Fun-nee

Lance Murdock on May 19, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Why did he have to keep insulting morons, troglidytes, baboons, the mentally handicapped, and nonhumans like that?

CrazyFool on May 19, 2008 at 11:05 AM

That was great. O’Reilly is an above average entertainer and has the ability to book decent guests, but it would help if he learned a little about basic economics. I also think he’s tied with Chris Matthews in being rude and interrupting people who are smarter than they are.

perroviejo on May 19, 2008 at 11:06 AM

troglodyte hermunculis!

LOL!!

max1 on May 19, 2008 at 11:07 AM

“Troglodyte homunculus” is now added to my quiver of potential insults.

Slublog on May 19, 2008 at 11:08 AM

Let’s see if he covers this on his next Policing segment. Maybe Tanya Reiman can do a workup on Bill-O.

The Race Card on May 19, 2008 at 11:08 AM

I knew those guys behind the camera were up to something.

manwithblackhat on May 19, 2008 at 11:09 AM

You guys do know that is fake right? The guy yelling back at him is added.

zerodamage on May 19, 2008 at 11:17 AM

Who WAS that guy behind the camera?

My collie says:

Flenser? Is that you?

CyberCipher on May 19, 2008 at 11:19 AM

Not funny at all. Haven’t we had enough of this Allah?

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 11:19 AM

It should have been Obama Girl behind the camera.

Vatican Watcher on May 19, 2008 at 11:20 AM

“Screw this up again, pal, we’ll send you over to Fox News!”

Golden.

MadisonConservative on May 19, 2008 at 11:26 AM

I refused to watch the original but loved the parody. Good content discretion, AP.

Vizzini on May 19, 2008 at 11:27 AM

Funny, funny stuff.

29Victor on May 19, 2008 at 11:29 AM

You guys do know that is fake right? The guy yelling back at him is added.

zerodamage on May 19, 2008 at 11:17 AM

Nah, he was just edited out of the first clip and then reinserted for Allahpundit’s pleasure.

Thirty years in the business, and now this will forever be O’Reilly’s calling card. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloviator.

fogw on May 19, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Troglodyte humunculus.

Friggin’ hilarious!

Valiant on May 19, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Could have been funnier.

I laughed more at the original…

benrand on May 19, 2008 at 11:30 AM

LOL

O’Reilly’s awesome.

bridgetown on May 19, 2008 at 11:32 AM

Not funny at all. Haven’t we had enough of this Allah?
Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 11:19 AM

Nowhere near being done with this, would be my guess. Oh, and the participants here who actually like him and don’t appreciate it when a conservative site helps to mock other conservatives? Screw them, huh?

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AM

From yourDictionary.com:

homunculus Definition
ho·mun·cu·lus (hō muŋ′kyo̵̅o̅ ləs)
noun pl. -·li′-lī′
a little man; dwarf; manikin

CyberCipher on May 19, 2008 at 11:37 AM

My collie says:

Homunculus? I don’t get it. O’Reilly is well over 6 feet tall.

But the “manikin” part fits, donchathink?

CyberCipher on May 19, 2008 at 11:39 AM

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AM

I don’t like O’Reilly very much but I agree, he’s still one of us and we shouldn’t be helping what’s obviously a liberal ***** make fun of him. Aren’t there some Olbermann or Chris Matthews clips out there?

Darth Executor on May 19, 2008 at 11:43 AM

Nowhere near being done with this, would be my guess. Oh, and the participants here who actually like him and don’t appreciate it when a conservative site helps to mock other conservatives? Screw them, huh?

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AM

I don’t have any problem with a poke or two at O’Reilly and I’m not sure he is anything near being conservative. But this post is kind of like a person telling you the same joke three times. The first time maybe it’s funny, it’s not funny the second time and by the third time you start to question the person’s sanity. Isn’t there something else out there?

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 11:47 AM

This video mash up was even funnier

o’reilly is nuts

wildweasel on May 19, 2008 at 11:53 AM

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AM

First of all, he’s not a conservative. He’s stated that.

Second of all, where does it say that conservatives are above criticism?

Third of all, this RICH coming from someone who insults any conservative who does not plan to vote for McCain.

MadisonConservative on May 19, 2008 at 12:00 PM

While it’s clear it’s a parody (the techno remix –CONTENT WARNING--was a lot funnier), all I could think about the whole video was: be cautious about believing anything you see on video about people behaving badly. You never know if there’s another side, or an earlier encounter you missed, that makes the person’s behavior completely understandable.

IOW If this had really happened, O’Reilly woulda been showing restraint, not throwing a tantrum. Unfortunately it didn’t; his temper apparently just got the best of him. Live and (we hope) learn, Bill.

inviolet on May 19, 2008 at 12:08 PM

“Screw this up again, pal, we’ll send you over to Fox News!”

MadisonConservative on May 19, 2008 at 11:26 AM

My favorite part too! (That and homunculus.)

Third of all, kindly don’t lie about me and keep your comments on topic.

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 12:26 PM

Yay!!!

a non-redlasso video!

way funny.

5, 4, 3, 2, haha.

mattshu on May 19, 2008 at 12:41 PM

You guys do know that is fake right? The guy yelling back at him is added.

zerodamage on May 19, 2008 at 11:17 AM

He was?!? Oh my gosh!?!

I like O’Reilly, but it’s still ok to poke fun at him. And I agree with OldDog that he needs to bone up on basic economics a bit.

BadgerHawk on May 19, 2008 at 12:50 PM

“Come on! Let’s do this!”

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

socalconservative on May 19, 2008 at 1:21 PM

Ignorant and childish attempt at humor.

Onager on May 19, 2008 at 1:22 PM

Oh, and the participants here who actually like him and don’t appreciate it when a conservative site helps to mock other conservatives?

Which one’s the line for the loyalty oath?

Isn’t there something else out there?

There’s a whole Internet out there. Nobody’s forcing you to read or watch anything.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 1:24 PM

Stop destroying conservatism, Jim.

BadgerHawk on May 19, 2008 at 1:30 PM

Yawn.

JFS61 on May 19, 2008 at 1:45 PM

turd
NOUN: Vulgar

1. A piece of excrement.
2. Slang: A contemptible person.

Every time you write the word, I visualize the first definition and find it very offensive.

Please delete the word from your on line vocabulary.

slp on May 19, 2008 at 2:05 PM

O’Reilly is one of the best things on T.V. and this is funny.

kahall on May 19, 2008 at 2:07 PM

A little too much redundant insult-hurling in the mid-section, but hilarious at the beginning & end!

RD on May 19, 2008 at 2:08 PM

Because, of course, O’Reilly is someone who needs defending. Because he just can’t do it himself.

Bunch of sooks. Bill can handle it, why can’t you?

Reaps on May 19, 2008 at 2:09 PM

And yes, it dipped in the middle, but was still worth it.

Reaps on May 19, 2008 at 2:09 PM

Turd, turd, turd, turd, turd.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 2:15 PM

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 1:24 PM

I don’t recall saying that I was forced.

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 2:22 PM

not funny, then again others might find it so

mainmann on May 19, 2008 at 2:24 PM

I don’t recall saying that I was forced.

Apparently you are, if there’s nothing else on the whole Internet that you can choose to click on.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 2:49 PM

Fun stuff.

Splashman on May 19, 2008 at 3:00 PM

Apparently you are, if there’s nothing else on the whole Internet that you can choose to click on.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 2:49 PM

Well I don’t recall saying anything of that sort either Jim, so that’s two shabby attempts to put words in my mouth, are you going to go for three?

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 3:04 PM

Isn’t there something else out there?

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 11:47 AM

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 3:07 PM

Maxx never claimed to have been forced to watch this. It was a simple question that you seem to be compelled to act like a jerk in response to, Jim.

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 3:16 PM

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 3:07 PM

That’s better, that’s what I said. Don’t know where you came up with all that other jazz, vivid imagination I guess.

Maxx on May 19, 2008 at 3:16 PM

wildweasel on May 19, 2008 at 11:53 AM

I sat through the entire video…again.

jaime on May 19, 2008 at 3:27 PM

Don’t know where you came up with all that other jazz

By reading what you wrote. The answer is yes, there is something else out there. It’s not at all difficult to find.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 3:28 PM

By reading what you wrote. The answer is yes, there is something else out there. It’s not at all difficult to find.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 3:28 PM

Well thank you for clearing that up Jim.

Jim Treacher

You don’t post enough.

Krydor on May 19, 2008 at 3:36 PM

Well thank you for clearing that up Jim.

You’re welcome.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 3:40 PM

That’s very funny.

O’Reilly has not aged well.

Hening on May 19, 2008 at 3:40 PM

sticks need to be removed apparently.

funny stuff.

rick roll was cleverly done.

turd turd turdy turd turd.

Sammy316 on May 19, 2008 at 4:51 PM

Allah:

See what you started.

You three learned “turd” was a bad word when you were three years old and have not grown up.

I don’t think that there is much demand at Comedy Central for comics whose best line is

Turd, turd, turd, turd, turd.

Jim Treacher on May 19, 2008 at 2:15 PM

or

turd turd turdy turd turd.

Jockolantern on May 19, 2008 at 5:51 PM

It was your whining that started it, not Big “A”.

wise_man on May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AM

Exactly, get over yourself and then go get a sense of humor. O’Reilly loves every minute of the exposure.
