O'Reilly: Your Enlistment Papers Are In The Mail

Imagine if Al Franken or anyone else on the left had said this:
[I]f I'm the president of the United States ... I say, 'Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds.' Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead. And if al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.
The wingnuts loonies would be having a field day, accusing the speaker of treason, of inciting an attack on American soil. (Telling terrorists to "Bring it on!" in other words.)

When pressed, Falafel Boy stands strong and makes shit up up:
I'm from New York. There are dozens of people in my neighborhood, on Long Island, who are dead because of 9/11, and you people are telling me you're not going to allow military recruiting out there. Hey, it's serious, and I think you guys need a wake-up call.
Since he's so supportive of recruiting, I wonder if O'Reilly has ever served in the armed forces? ... I'll bet I know the answer to that one.

Actually, a poster at Democratic Underground says that O'Reilly has spoken in the past of his experience "in combat". It turns out that he was a reporter stationed in Buenos Aires during the Falklands War. ... Cannonfire also has some good comments.

Elsewhere, Bruce Willis is offering $1 million cash to any civilian who captures Osama bin Forgotten. I guess the $25 million reward that already exists needed to be sweetened a little bit. I love this: Willis is referred to in the article as the "hairless Hollywood he-man".
