On his show tonight, Bill O'Reilly responded to last Thursday night's episode of The Daily Show, in which Jon Stewart attacked O'Reilly's claims that "traditional America" is over. O'Reilly's explanation raises at least as many questions as his original comments did. He lists off a bunch of positions associated with Obama voters according to exit polls, including equal rights for gays, women and the general notion that countries outside of the U.S. deserve our respect. Then he screamed at the "pinheads at Comedy Central" that "those are not traditional positions." O'Reilly is lamenting the loss of a time in America that hasn't exists for generations, if it ever really existed at all. Unfortunately, with Jon Stewart taking this week off for Thanksgiving, we'll have to wait until after the holiday to see if and how he responds.
Last night, Anderson Cooper's report from Gaza City was interrupted by a large explosion nearby. Then today, Wolf Blitzer had to run into a shelter in Ashkelon, Israel after the air raid sirens started going off. Stay safe, CNN!
If I had to guess, I would say that this sketch didn't make the live show Saturday night because it was a back-up in case Chris Christie didn't come through. It's a shame that more people didn't get to see Bobby Moynihan's Guy Fieri react to his terrible New York Times review.
Just because the election's over, doesn't mean Joe Biden is going to stop saying ridiculously inappropriate things about President Obama. ᔥ BuzzFeed
