That's what Bill O'Reilly says about anyone who chooses not to come on to face his objective interviewing technique.
But my guess is that if John Edwards may make a decision based on not whether he has the gonads to sit opposite the no-spinster, but on whether he wants to give the time to someone who demeans him to the point of insult so egregious, that if true, Edwards would be rode out of town on a rail.
Bill's astute opine of Edwards today included his belief that the Democratic Presidential candidate "doesn't have a clue and doesn't care about terrorism."
If Edwards - Bill's "least favorite" candidate - were elected, O'Reilly said, "I would build my own fallout shelter."
Now, why in the world wouldn't Edwards want to visit Fox studios with that kind of welcoming committee waiting for him? Why wouldn't he want to spend time with the man who also told the Folks today that he had "no confidence" in our attaining success in Iraq. "No confidence" from the guy who has been supporting Bush sending more of our troops into harm's way to supply the Surge? Sending more troops into a war with a strategy he has "no confidence" in. Wow. With O'Reilly so busy looking out for the Folks over here it sounds like he doesn't have the time to look out for our Folks over there.
It almost makes you think that Bill doesn't have a clue...or is it that he just doesn't care?
Steve Young is the author of "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" (www.greatfailure.com) and his column appears in the LA Daily News Sunday Opinion page...to the left of O'Reilly's...really.
