Giving the Devil His Due
If you’re familiar with this site, you know that Bill O’Reilly is not one of my favorite people (scroll down). I think he’s full of it and, on a personal level, he really creeps me out. However, to his credit--unlike Fox News colleague Sean Hannity and others--he didn’t demagogue Ted Kennedy’s “neanderthal” comment; on today's Radio Factor, he simply told the truth; O’Reilly simply said the obvious: that Kennedy used the term to refer to judicial nominees’ philosophy and that it was not a racial slur directed at any particular person. Spinsanity has a good post on the matter.
