He has lost his mind. What I find interesting about their dispute is that Al Franken uses facts, video and audio clips to prove O'Reilly's deceptions. Bill on the other hand just resorts to name calling. No proof of inaccuracies, just kindergarten rhetoric. The kind I heard in the schoolyards growing up as a kid. The kind used by little boys who knew they were going to get beat up again.

Newshounds has the transcripts. They also have the real deal on Franken's speech, including O'Reilly attacking Howard Kurtz as well.

He often cries foul when people will not appear on his show, yet refuses to let anyone from Media Matters or Air America defend themselves against his blather. He's so interested in where Jolie and the Tsunami donations are going, but refuses to try and find out what happened to the almost 9 billion dollars that was lost in Iraq. Oh and he called FNC a pro-American network.

Can you help us out?
