Message Steve mcqueen
(May 8, 2007) Yesterday, Bill O'Reilly was in a lather over a Rasmussen Poll that found 22% of American voters (35% of Democrats) who believe President Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened. 
It was "madness," I tellya. "Madness," declared the no-spinster.  How could this have happened? It could only be one thing.  Well, actually a couple things that are behind pretty much anything Bill finds an opposing point of view....
....or who Bill knows as George Soros, the bastard who funded dissidents fighting to end communist rule in the Soviet Union.  It is Soros, says Bill, who funds the hateful, smear-sites, which Bill knows as Mediamatters.org - the media oversight website which provides unedited transcripts and sound of many of Bill's comments for free.  Free and unedited, y'hear! How damn unAmerican can you get?! 
But the crime against America also sits at the feet of networks "in the pockets of the far-left," or what Bill knows as MSNBC, the network which has given shows to well-known far-lefters like Joe Scarborough, Tucker Carlson and Chris Matthews.
Bill contended that "nothing on the right comes close to the vitriol of the left."  
Which means: Not Michael Savage.  Not Freerepublic.com.  Not Mark Levine.  Not the Heritage Foundation.  Not Neal Boortz.  Not Rush Limbaugh.  Not Richard Mellon Scaife.  Not Glenn Beck.  Not Dick Morris. Not Anne Coulter. Not even Bill O'Reilly. 
These far left smear sites "wouldn't actually kill someone," admitted Bill.  "But they wouldn't mind if someone would die."  Proof of the pudding: comments on some left-handed sites that wished Tony Snow ill.  Not even Savage saying he wished a caller would get AIDs and die comes close to wishing someone would die.  Okay, bad example, but Bill doesn't spin, so I'm sure there was a loophole there.
But let's back to that 22% of Americans believing that Bush did something that bad, like ignoring the possibility of an Al Quada attack on America.  If it was the left that perpetrated that little bit of misinformation, then who or what was behind the fact that over a sh*tload % of Fox viewers and a full 100% of our Vice-President still believe that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11?
In fact, years after the fact, a Harris Poll found that reported...
-- Forty-one percent (41%) of U.S. adults still believed that Saddam Hussein had "strong links to Al Qaeda." -- Twenty-two percent (22%) of adults still believed that Saddam Hussein "helped plan and support the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11." -- Twenty-six percent (26%) of adults still believed that Iraq "had weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded." -- Twenty-four percent (24%) of all adults still believed that "several of the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11 were Iraqis."
Before Bill gets upset at my figures, let me say that I believe the person behind those delusional numbers is George Soros.  Only someone as devious and hate-Bush-minded as Soros, someone who just donated millions to support a South Africa project to fight disease, could devise a plan so cunning as to dupe Bush-supporters and a Vice-President with heads so clearly up their collective asses that they would believe something that even President Bush says he doesn't think true.
As Bill says, the moon-bats have not one iota of evidence to the Bush-9/11 story and that makes them loons.  Why just last week, Dennis Miller told Bill that he has no proof but will never stop believing that Saddam's WMD ended up in Syria.  As smart as Dennis is, you gotta know that Soros had his grimy altruistic billionaire, hate-America and/or Bush fingers all over making Miller a loon.  
As you said, Bill, you're "the only one"
watching out for this Soros contagion.  Keep fighting the good fight, my friend.  The faster we out Soros for all his incessant philanthropy and annoying exercise of his Democratic rights, the faster we will stop this infestation of misinformation and misinformers on America. Then only question will be left.
Who then will Fox replace you with?
