    Default Letterman to Bill O'Reilly: 60% of your act is crap

    from Hammer of Truth

    Letterman: Yeah, so why are we there in the first place? I agree to you,
    with you that we have to support the troops. They are there, they are the
    best and the brightest of this country. [audience applause] Theres no doubt
    about that. And I also agree that now were in it its going to take a long,
    long time. People who expect its going to be solved and wrapped up in a
    couple of years, unrealistic, its not going to happen. However, however, that
    does not eliminate the legitimate speculation and concern and questioning
    of Why the Hell are we there to begin with?


    OReilly: If you want to question that, and then revamp an intelligence
    agency thats obviously flawed, the CIA, okay. But remember, MI-6 in Britain
    said the same thing. Putins people in Russia said the same thing, and so did
    Mubaraks intelligence agency in Egypt.

    Letterman: Well then that makes it all right?

    OReilly: No it doesnt make it right.

    Letterman: That intelligence agencies across the board makes it alright
    that were there?

    OReilly: It doesnt make it right.

    Letterman: Im not smart enough to debate you point to point on this,
    but I have the feeling, I have the feeling about 60 percent of what you
    say is crap. [audience laughter] But I dont know that for a fact.
    [more audience applause]

    Paul Shafer: 60 percent.

    Letterman: 60 percent. Im just spit-balling here.

    Some of the commenters claim that O'Reilly kept his cool and came off
    looking nonplussed at Letterman's remarks, and that the host was
    somewhat out of his league.

    I will be honest and say that I USE to like Fox, everyone one it, and O'Reilly as well. I say USE to. I can't stand it now. Everyone on there has something to sell the rest of us. The rest of us who, I feel they feel, are fat and dumb. Thank you.

    Default Letterman vs. O'Reilly

    Bill O'Reilly vs. David Letterman?


    Not since Godzilla took on King Kong has there been such a battle. Okay, maybe not.


    But it was still - as Letterman band leader Paul Shaffer opined after O'Reilly left the CBS "Late Show" stage Tuesday night - "Good TV, wouldn't you say?"


    The fireworks began when the normally apolitical Letterman mocked the very political Fox News Channel star for his recent warnings against "secular" bureaucrats who allegedly are removing the word "Christmas" from American culture.


    "Isn't this the kind of thing," Letterman smirked, "that once or twice every 20 years, somebody gets outraged and says, 'Oh my God, we gotta put diapers on horses'?"


    O'Reilly countered: "You think I'm making this up?"


    Letterman: "Yes, I think you're making it up."


    Then the two hugely rich television personalities argued about President Bush, the U.S. military operation in Iraq and especially peace protester Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier-son was killed in the war.


    Letterman: "How can you possibly take exception with the motivation and the position of someone like Cindy Sheehan?" O'Reilly: "Because I think she's run by far-left elements in this country. I feel bad for the woman."


    Finally Letterman declared: "I'm not smart enough to debate you point to point on this, but I have the feeling about 60% of what you say is crap."


    O'Reilly: "You're going to have to give me an example if you're going to make those claims."


    Letterman: "Well I don't watch your show, so that would be impossible."


    Yesterday, Letterman was mum on the subject, but O'Reilly said on his radio show: "I have to give Letterman credit for at least acknowledging that he didn't have the facts and, you know, saying that he was going from his emotion."

    Oh man, I heard the audio yesterday. It was hilarious. O'Reilly is a nasty, self-important weasel. I was so proud of Dave, especially when he defended Cindy Sheehan. Go, Dave, go!!!
