Bill O’Reilly must think America is
made up mostly of loons.
As Andrew Kirell of Mediaite points out, O’Reilly said yesterday during his show that bombing Syria was the only course of action left for America, and that any person in Congress unwilling to vote for that course of action must be a loon.
“Who’s going to vote against that besides the loons?” the Factor host asked Karl Rove, who appeared on the show. “It’s got to be done quickly. Bang, boom. And then let the chips fall where they may. But no more dead kids breathing poison gas.”
Max Fisher of the Washington Post notes that the only thing less popular than Congress is Congress voting to attack Syria.
And it likely won’t be “bang, boom … done quickly,” former Marine General James Mattis said last month at a conference in Aspen that escalated involvement in Syria by the U.S. military would lead to “a full-throated, very, very serious war.”
