fuck it! we'll do it live!!!

The American political commentary landscape is littered with a vast plethora of huge fucking assholes. Between guys like Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, and Rush Limbaugh, it seems like the main thing big media corporations look for when hiring someone for insane amounts of money to talk about their completely retarded worldview on television or radio is that they be a massive douchebag. But of all the giant douches working in political punditry today, there is perhaps no bigger a douche than Bill O'Reilly.

A few weeks ago, footage surfaced of a younger O'Reilly, then the host of Inside Edition, freaking out and having an insane hissy fit while the cameras were still rolling. Apparently he was dismayed that his producers felt that, as a man who is paid to talk on television, he should be able to improvise a short outro blurb at the end of the show instead of reading the exact words off of a teleprompter. Check out the hilarity for yourself:

Obviously, this has become a massive internet sensation, and earlier today I stumbled upon this site which features a bunch of music that various people have made by remixing sound bites from O'Reilly's temper tantrum. I particularly enjoyed the Scatman remix.

So again, just to reiterate, Bill O'Reilly is a douche. That is all.
