Despicable argumentation

These pinheads running around going, "Get out of Iraq now," don't know what they're talking about. These are the same people before Hitler invaded in World War II that were saying, "Ah, he's not such a bad guy." They don't get it. - Bill O'Reilly, Nov. 30 2005

Now, it's a small little thing, but I picked up on it, because here is the essential problem in Iraq. There are so many nuts in the country -- so many crazies -- that we can't control them. And I don't -- we're never gonna be able to control them. So the only solution to this is to hand over everything to the Iraqis as fast as humanly possible. Because we just can't control these crazy people. This is all over the place. And that was the big mistake about America: They didn't -- it was the crazy-people underestimation. We did not know how to deal with them -- still don't. But they're just all over the place. - Bill O'Reilly, Feb. 20 2006

Cognitive dissonance much Bill? Hm? See, maybe those people who thought we should withdraw from Iraq weren't like apologists for Hitler after all, or is it that they are but you are not?Does this suggest anything to you? Do you think maybe you should not be so cavalier about denigrating the character of people whom you disagree with in the future?

Scientists have expressed puzzlment over what appears to be an epidemic of spontaneously exploding heads.

Yeah, but Bill-O was against withdrawal before he was for it, so it's okay. Or something.

Someone should feed him that Emerson line about consistency being the hobgoblin of small minds and see how much mileage he gets out of that one.
