So, will O'Reilly put up or shut up?
We all know he's gonna spin the Clooney challenge to his favor. However, will he actually take part? I remember O'Reilly bitching about Clooney with the 911 fundrasier. My take was, 'Look, Clooney is ATLEAST donating Bill. How much have you donated to 911?' I swear, these people are NEVER happy & will bitch at ANYTHING! I really hope Clooney doesn't let this go anytime soon.

2. He'll weasle out. He's already given himself some wiggle room.
He's no different from any other bully. He's a coward at heart.

3. I think Bill
will accept the challenge. His head may be screwed on wrong, but he has a lot of guts. Verbally anyway.

We'll have to see.

5. He doesn't have any guts at all.
Once he loses control of the microphone, he loses control altogether.

12. Really? So then why did
he talk tough and then very quickly pay off the woman who was claiming sexual harrassment? He folded like a cheap lawn chair. He's all talk. He, like Rush, can only participate in a fixed fight. His show is taped and edited. It's rigged. He likes to play the tough Irish street kid. In reality, he grew up in upper middle-class comfort and is about as street-wise as Jenna Bush. He's a world-class phony. "A lot of guts"? What, exactly, are you basing that on? Where and when was that demonstrated? (not Viet Nam...O'Reilly had other priorities, just like Cheney). Please name your examples of O'Reilly's fortitude.

8. Clooney calling out O'Reilly is great
at least it shows there are some Irish that will speak their mind without being prompted. I hope O'Reilly accepts. He is a pompous arrogant jerk. After hearing the comments made by Savage last week and no mention of them by O'Reilly or any of those so called "journalists" at Fox I am hoping to see some of these people squirm.

Just imagine, they find fault with people trying to help others but whine , bitch and moan about the Christmas. Unreal.

He'll say it's not "organized" enough for him. WEASEL.

11. I'm a late comer to this...
What was O'Reily's problem with Clooney and the 911 fundraiser?

13. I would think that donations would drop if O"reilly' showed up
would you really want to donate money to something he's involved with?
