O'Reilly vs Coulter

Ann and Bill squared off last night over the Iraq war.

Ann calls the bad new from Iraq "background noise." In Ann's world we shouldn't be carping about every casualty, every bombing, every death. Hey "War is Hell." Her reference to D-Day is a particularly "low-brow" analogy. Coulter wants to know how we know Iraq isn't going very well. After all she's no military expert. However, she doesn't believe FOX's own experts like "biblical justice" Hunt who is saying we're in trouble over there. Annie disputes that it's worse now than it was last year.

Bill and Ann then had a little spat about Vietnam:

COULTER: Yes, we kind of did. I think we did lose that one.

O’REILLY: I don’t. I disagree with you. But that’s a debate for another day.

COULTER: They’re living under communism, Bill.

Newshounds has more on the segment: She blamed broadcasters like Cronkite and Democrats in congress for our defeat in Vietnam because they said we were losing.

Ballon-Juice : Longtime readers know my feelings about Bill O’Reilly, and when O’Reilly and Coulter debate, it is sort of akin to a Cowboys/Browns Superbowl for me.

I root for injuries.
