Clooney calls out O'Reilly!
George Clooney came out throwing right hands at Bill O'Reilly's vain attempts at criticizing Hollywood's effort in raising money for the Tsunami victims. Only O'Reilly can put a damper on a good function and try to turn it into a controversy before the fact. Clooney invited Bill to appear on the show and:

Clooney:" ..put your considerable money where your considerable mouth is." That's no small feat.

O'Reilly's response:" I have to see what the format is," was a disgrace for two reasons. The first is that it showed how unprepared Bill was for Clooney to stand up to him; and second because it would probably force O'Reilly to align himself with the Hollywood that he so often attacks.

1. I heard about this on AAR LOL
O'Liely is gonna have to wiggle fast and bend like a pretzel. I do believe as we used to say in Oklahoma - old Bill let his mouth outweigh his ass!

2. O'Reilly's ego has no limit.
Such a royal jerk.
I'd like to see him show up at the fundraiser and have Clooney knock his damn teeth out.

12. It would be far better if the entire audience
...simply stood up, pulled vibrators out of their pockets, turned them on and waved them at him in unison. No need for violence, when ridicule and shame are far better gifts, that keep on giving!

For the life of me, anyone who goes on that toad's show without a good loofah, falafel, or vibrator retort prepared in the back of their mind is missing a tremendous opportunity. Even just a simple "Oh, Bill, stick a falafel in it!" would discombobulate him, and remind his audience that he is a harassing perv...!

Keith Olberman will be doing a bit on Dildo tonight, btw.

5. Did you hear O'Liely's comment that if he could 'make a pitch'
"would depend on how organized they were over there" obviously making his case in advance that if they tell him to hit the road (as they well should) means they are unorganized. This implies that if he chooses not to speak or is not allowed to speak, it is the actors' fault in being "unorganized", and casts doubt on whether or not the victims will get the money.

O'Lielly is a first-class jerk who feels this need to punch a group of people trying to use their celebrity to help others.

Clooney was dead on when he said Bill makes more money than and is a bigger celeb than George. Hence the "put his money where is mouth is" comment.

Go George!!

6. Go George Go. He's the Fucking man.
I hate noone more than Bill O'Reilly in the whoreosphere, and Clooney is just the kind of good democrat who O'Reilly doesn't think should be allowed anything. Success, happiness, and most importantly the right to speak his voice.

10. " I have to see what the format is"? What a wimp.
Should they let you run the show Bill? Will you feel safe then?

15. Clooney's got more class in his little finger
...than O'liely has in his whole body.

I wish BO would just shut the fuck up!
