O'Reilly vs Olbermann: A Punchless Brawl

On Bill O'Reilly's TV Factor last Wednesday, the No-spinster kept trying to get his opponent into a clinch, interrupting nearly every sentence columnist and Fox News contributor, Ellis Henican threw that wasn't going the way Bill wanted -- which was pretty much every one of them. Body-blow, body-blow, body-blow. O'Reilly was bloodied to the point he had to be bleeped -- "Torture, my ass" -- though I'm not really sure why. We're talking cable.

Bill kept hitting the canvas more than Michaelangelo. The only thing that saved O'Reilly was the commercial bell. Maybe that's part of the reason he spews senselessness like spittle from stroke-ridden ex-fighter. He's punchdrunk.

Still, you have to give O'Reilly credit. He regularly books Henican, as well as Temple University's Professor Marc Hill, both of whom are lefties who consistently pummel Bill with flurries of facts and clear-thinking logic. On the other hand, and network -- Countdown/MSNBC -- Keith Olbermann, who although he has the facts on his side, rarely (ever?) brings on anyone from the other side who disagrees with him.

At 6'4" and both weighing in at well over 200 pounds, the heavyweights are imposing figures, but READ THE REST OF THE BATTLE ROYAL HERE
