You can’t fix stupid. Seriously. O’Reilly is Irish. And as Paddys Lamentation points out, it wasn’t all that for the Irish back in the day.
“I’m tired now of the elections, People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly. They are going to have to compromise, It’s not a dirty word.” – Former First Lady Barbara Bush
Compromise is not a dirty word. Maybe the former First Lady should have a sit down about that with Bill O’Reilly.

“Jerry, something’s wrong here. You just became President of the United States and I’m still cooking.”

You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive. You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people, and play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors.”
