1. His self-loathing is getting the better of him?

3. He said he is considering it last night on the Daily Show.
He said he is "tired" of fighting. LOL!

4. Don't know for sure...

But I could see him bugging out rather than having to defend Rove and company night after night if they're indicted. Not because of any kind of conscience on O'Reilly's part, of course. He just won't play unless he can rig it for himself.

5. Keith Olbermann read a quote from him
saying that he would not renew his contract in two years. Keith did the "ding dong the witch is dead" dance. Pretty funny.

12. That was the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" dance.
Please get your pop culture references straight.

6. Bill Suck!
He should go and wallow in his own filth. He doesn't speak for anyone anymore.

8. He never did
He's always been a crybaby, even when people still believed in the crap he spews. Now that his 'boy' is toast, you won't have BO to kick around anymore.

14. He calls his show "the factor"...
The only facts he supported was that he was rude, a bully and ignorant. He only brings on the people he can intimidate. You never see him getting his hands dirty.

9. IMHO, he has a contract, or he would have been gone after
Falafelgate. (Sorry about the -gate. On Bill, it just looks right.)

11. Newsday said the sorry bastard was gonna retire when his contract
was up. More likely, FAUX has seen his ratings slide, they have projected it out, and they are not gonna renew him. http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/tv/nyc-etlede44732...

13. He's Weaseling-out, But He Sure Looks Beaten
In the original Newsday article below, the contract runs for a little more than two years, but first he said "retirement" then weaseled on into "maybe".

But all his whining, denial, paranoia, delusions in the article and his hunched shoulders on TDS sure look like he's beaten.

15. He suggested it on the Daily Show last night.
But what can you believe that comes out of the mouth of O'Lielly?
