Truly, is there anyone less logical and self-aware than Bill O'Reilly? Well, I guess anyone who watches Bill and believes him (as opposed to using him for comic relief).

Billo brings on former White House Spokesman Tony Snow to agree with him that the left and their media are completely out of touch with America. Actually, I just described EVERY O'Reilly Factor show, didn't I? However, in yesterday's edition of "When did I wake up on this side of the looking glass?" O'Reilly claims that it is the left wants the election to be all about Jesus so they don't have to deal with the areas in which they're weak:

O’REILLY: There have been more questions on religion than terrorism. If the media can keep the argument on Jesus, and not on terrorism, taxes, redistribution of income, all of these things that the Democrats might have a little problem with, then that’s a big win for the Democrats. Keep it on Jesus, keep it into the bible thumping ‘he’s a Baptist, he’s a Mormon, Giuliani married three times.’ Keep it there and you win, that’s a good strategy, Snow!

SNOW: Ah you know what? I don’t think they’re going to beat Jesus.

Um, yeah. That's why the Republican candidate Mitt Romney had to talk about faith equaling freedom--because the left wanted him to. And that's why Huckabee's website has a banner that says "Faith.Family.Freedom" in that order--because the left wanted him to. And why the right came to McCain's defense when he called the U.S. a "Christian nation"--because the left wanted him to.

And Bill, when did "redistribution of income" become a rallying cry of the right? Did you get your talking points mixed up?
