Flashback: November 15, 2007

Bill O'Reilly's not above using blackmail to get guests on the O'Reilly Factor. He's just threatened to do it to Christine O'Donnell. You see, O'Reilly's massive ego is still bruised by O'Donnell recently canceling an appearance on Fox.

Ever the company man, O'Reilly's not the voice of reason that he sounds. He still keeps insisting on feigning confusion about the insistence of "the left" to ridicule her for making several flaky comments that just make her sound like Sarah Palin-lite (which is scary enough, since Palin's an intellectual flyweight to begin with). However, O'Reilly did remind his viewers that Bill Maher's not the only guy who can dip into his video vaults to show O'Donnell in a less than flattering light. On his show last night, O'Reilly seemed to briefly threaten to drag out these clips.

This is probably what he was thinking about when Fox, inexplicably, brought O'Donnell in as a guest on O'Reilly Factor to weigh in as the conservative viewpoint on stem cell research and cloning, a highly technical and complicated topic that's perhaps best discussed among experts and truly informed pundits.

Toward the end of this video, O'Donnell said, "American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they’re already into this experiment."

Sorta like this. Which was the same weird, Island of Dr. Moreau shit that Bush was blathering on about almost two years before that during his 2006 State of the Union Address when he pleaded with Congress,
Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids...

This, as with all rumors, lies and innuendos, starts out with a grain of truth. Back in January 2005, National Geographic created quite a stir in Fundie Land when they announced that Chinese scientists "at the Shanghai Second Medical University in 2003 successfully fused human cells with rabbit eggs." And scientists at Stanford University were doing experiments involving injecting human brain cells into the brains of mice.

Both Bush and O'Donnell had years and years to think about what was actually done yet in their reptilian, reactionary brains, somehow this morphed into ten foot tall chimeras and mice with "fully developed human brains." Bush got to leave office on his own terms after eight plastic bubblicious years comfortably shielded from the truth. It's like playing Telephone only with higher stakes.

But the intellectual trogs are still winning elections and primaries. Christine O'Donnell is proof of that. By winning Delaware's GOP senate primary earlier this month, she already has more pure political capital than Sarah Palin and the last fucking we need is another Sarah Palin.

So O'Falafelly has to mimic Maher. And this twat -- I mean twit -- no I don't, I mean twat for real -- won't even appear on a Fux show. Listen, O'Diddle -- if you want to milk this "I'm running for office" scam for some decent money, you have to fucking well show up for shit.

I think what a lot of Teabag-endorsed candidates will wind up doing is campaigning on a platform of "Intelligent people don't like me -- so vote for me to spite those smarty-pants!" And with the sad state of the Red States, that's probably good for 33% of the vote right off the bat. Batshit insane, that is.
