As Diane told us about here, the Nuns on a Bus tour kicked off in June and they already had Rep. Paul Ryan and his cruel budget on their agenda because of the harm it does to the poor. Now they've challenged presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to spend a day with them to learn about the plight of America's poor.

So naturally that meant their Network Executive Director, Sister Simone Campbell, was going to get attacked, talked over and bullied by Fox's Bill O'Reilly when she made an appearance on his show this Monday evening. O'Reilly was screaming about raising taxes on the rich doing damage to the economy, which it won't as the good sister rightfully pointed out, and he continually cut her off as she tried to explain why we need a living wage in America and why we should not be gutting off our social safety nets.

You're never going to get anywhere with O'Reilly arguing about this stuff because he's firmly rooted in the cult of I've got mine and the hell with the rest of you.

Can you help us out?
