O'Reilly: Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin
O'Reilly is worrying about the effect that pop culture is having on the younger folks. He wanted to know where his Ted Nugent is? If this is any indication, he'll be kept far away from our kids. He tells us that kids believe you're a geek if you're well informed.

I have to wonder how many of O'Reilly's viewers can pick Iraq out of a map of the Middle East. He attacked Jon Stewart's viewers as he commonly does, but didn't his crack research staff find out that TDS viewers are better informed than The O'Reilly Factor's faithful? Did he tell his peeps that a lot of FOX viewers might still believe Saddam had something to do with 9/11?

Then Bill proceeded to give us a history lesson in the '60's and '70's. He blamed Hendrix and Joplin for the drug days and..well you get the idea. By the way, how many people ever knew the name of the Speaker of the House? These "Talking Point Memo's" will continue down this path because he's leading his audience to buy his new book called "Culture Warrior." I wouldn't doubt that this is a passage out of the book itself.

Can you help us out?
