Yesterday Chris Dodd went on The O'Reilly Factor to talk about his attendence t the Yearly Kos convention. The segment is going to air on tonight's program, but O'Reilly teased it on his radio show earlier today. AUDIO AVAILABLE ON MyDD

This is some really great stuff. Dodd goes directly at O'Reilly in a way that few have been able to in a long time, not only strenuously defending the netroots from O'Reilly's scurrilous attacks but also going after O'Reilly for his own extremist language (for instance, Dodd brings up O'Reilly's comments from 2005 about Al Qaeda bombing San Francisco). You can hear O'Reilly get really frustrated in the clip -- particularly when he scolds Dodd for not being enough like his fellow Connecticut Senator, Joe Lieberman -- which is a testament to the solid job Dodd did during the interview.So go and reward the good behavior over at Dodd's website, where he is hosting a petition supporting the netroots

Unfortunately, the broadcast was pre-empted last night for coverage of the MN bridge collapse.  However, FOX did say that they would run the interview tonight.  Whether the interview will be edited, it's hard to say, so I wanted you to hear it as it would have ran last night.
