Bill O'Reilly | Gay Marriage | Lawrence O'Donnell | Rush Limbaugh

Lawrence O'Donnell Relishes the Feud Between Limbaugh and O'Reilly on Marriage Equality: VIDEO


Rush Limbaugh took great offense to Bill O'Reilly's characterization this week of anti-gay marriage people as "Bible thumpers" and his evolution on marriage equality, so much so that he mentioned O'Reilly's name for the first time in ages.

Lawrence O'Donnell is eating it up.

"The really funny thing about Bill O'Reilly's conversion on marriage equality is that llke Rush, he hates people who change their minds about marriage equality. He hates Bill Clinton and he hates Barack Obama for doing exactly what Bill O'Reilly has done. In the very same segment last night where Bill O'Reilly announced his change of mind about marriage equality he actually attaced Bill Clinton and Bill O'Reilly for doing exactly the same thing."

    Oh, Rush. Look, he's in the same boat as folks like Huckabee - when his makes his living from appealing to a very specific target demo, it's devastatingly scary to see that that target demo's ranks are gonna be first ignored, and eventually thinned.

    who listens to Limbaugh? people even more stupid and bigoted than the people who listen to O'Reilly.

  2. Seriously though, you know your own ratings s*ck pretty bad when you resort to talking points referencing two other talk show hosts, or whatever they call themselves. MSNBC has been doing this in regards to Fox for a long time. They should be doing more to improve their own ratings. I don't think critiquing Fox is working.

  3. I do agree with that last point O'Reilly made about how none of this sudden "evolving" support seems genuine. These politicians aren't "evolving." They are either voicing what they have believed all along because the polls are now giving them permission, or they feel they have to say it in order to stay electable, because of recent polls. With that said, genuine or not, at least we are gaining more support.

  4. The "feud" between O'Reilly and Limbaugh is just a coordinated attempt to associate pro-SSM with people who insult "bible thumpers". O'Reilly is standing in for us, pretending we all hate "real America".

    Next month, he'll be pro-traditional marriage again. And in the meantime, people will have "gays hate religion" reinforced.

  5. I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that Elton John was a real turd for playing at Limbaugh's wedding.

    Yes he ended up donating that money to gay charities but that was only after people started protesting his playing for Limbaugh. Before that he was more than happy to pocket the dough.

  6. Lush Windbag is such old news I'm amazed anyone is paying attention to his ravings. That long intake of breath before each stunningly vile pronouncement, it's just bad theater gone rancid. Give the old fart the thundering silence he deserves. And give him a few more vicodan, he's clearly jonesing.
