A Peep Into The Mind of O'Reilly

We don't give a rat's patoot about who said "Nigger, nigger, nigger." But there is something interesting in Bill O'Reilly's statement.
On Wednesday, O'Reilly said he had withheld the N-word remark because "I'm not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that's not relevant to the general subject -- one civil rights leader disparaging another over policy. As for how the N-word comment got out, O'Reilly said "some weasel leaked it to the Internet."
You got it. To Mr. O'Reilly, Sen. Obama is not the presumptive presidential candidate of the majority party. He's "another civil rights leader." Which should make Sen. McCain an ex-POW involved in banking fraud. And wasn't it probably a "Fox," rather than a "weasel," who leaked it? P. S.: Should the Times be capitalizing the "n" in "N-word?" What's the style book say?

Whatsamatter, you can't actually say "nigger" in the Times? I think that Quentin Tarantino has the best take on the word "nigger".

Nope, it's strictly "N-word" in Timesville. If Nixon says "shit," that'll get printed in its entirety. But that's about it. Although if memory serves, The Times printed "cut his nuts off," but that exact phrase wasn't heard on the radio.

"Jesse Jackson threatened to castrate Barack Obama." That sort of thing.
