If you want to know what it's like to be a Philadelphia Sixers fan, hating Celtic legend Larry Bird, only to wake up one glorious morning to find he's been traded to the Sixers, yesterday was your day.
The morning began with Bill O'Reilly ripping into Right wing talk show hosts...ALL OF THEM, saving a special condemnation for Rush Limbaugh.
Some of his comments included...
"Kool-aid drinking idiots"
"Right wing liars."
"They don't care if you suffer."
There was more, but that wasn't the best.
That came last night when Mark Levin, perhaps the loudest of the Lords of Loud, who took on Big Bad Bully Bill. Keith Olbermann could not have done it better.
Some of Dr. Levin's choice "what he thinks of Bill include...
"Paid to be arrogant and stupid."
"Your ratings suck."
But the best...
"You paid more in hush money for your little phone sex than I've ever earned."
For this I can only one thing that I never thought I would ever say...
Thank you, Dr. Levin. I owe you one.
