What. An. Idiot!


Ford’s Theatre on O’Reilly ‘Lincoln’ book
The historical study of ‘Killing Lincoln’ by the deputy superintendent of Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site.

Seems to me that if you are going to write a book about an historical figure you would, at the very least, want to get the history correct.

O'Reilly is an idiot.
Why would anyone buy his book? Or listen to anything he has to say about anything? Wake up, people! Your brain is at stake here!

It's one of the great mysteries of the universe: How does this man stay on television? Or tie his shoes, for that matter?

Betsy! Wash your mouth out with soap!

I was thinking of you the other day when I saw a thing on 60 Minutes about autistic children doing incredibly well with an iPad. They were given an iPad and suddenly they were communicating - intelligently - for the first time ever. Their parents, as you can imagine, were just overwhelmed with emotion over this. If you didn't see it, perhaps you could Google it up - or look into an iPad for your boys. Anyway, I was thinking of you.

Hi Brian! Always great to see you!

Betsy - here is the link to the clip from 60 minutes. It's SO good!

Betsy said...

thanks Angel...I saw that 60 minutes and we did just get them an iPad for their birthday a couple of weeks ago!

AngelMay said...

Yay Betsy! I hope it works out like a charm for them!

We are on the same page regarding O'Reilly! I wasn't aware there were factual errors in his new book...very interesting, though not surprising.

Lo said...

Yay, Angel May.....you've got it right.

O'Reilly is not only an idiot, but a hideous disgrace to the human race.....but the worst thing is, he has a platform to influence other idiots and is very dangerous. Sob.

Well let it all out and rant and rave! Fortunately, he's unknown here but I'm sure we have equally stupid people. I heard a radio Jock the other day talking about Romulus and Remus as Greek mythology. *sigh*

I think you nailed it. Thanks for visiting and good luck with the implants.

O'Reilly is just one facepalm after another... Even when he had scientists explain it to him, he said "well how'd the moon get there?" and then wouldn't respond when they answered that too...

AngelMay said...

Sub-Radar... this is because the man is truly an idiot. He should be kept on a leash - in private - where no one can ever lay eyes on him or, mercifully, ever hear him run his mouth again.

Unfortunately, it's often those who yell the loudest who get the most attention. Doesn't matter if they're complete jackwagons.
