If not, lets take up a collection for Bill O’Lie-ly.
And, irrespective of that, lets take up a collection to send a huuuuuge bouquet of roses to Jessica Alba.
The details are at Crooks and Liars, but Alba has gotten on the bad side of Mr. Not-a-Peabody-Winner…Really of late. Some of his thugs ambushed her with a camera – and she turned the tables on them.
When he refused to answer because he’s a “journalist” (note: this is a fake excuse) she asked, “Why not? Be neutral. Be Sweden about it.”
O’Reilly: Be Sweden about it? Ah, that’s Switzerland, Jessica. Sweden is a very nice country but Switzerland is the land of neutrality.
The problem is that Sweden is more than the home of ABBA – it was also neutral during WWII.
As Alba put it at her MySpace page:
I want to clear some things up that have been bothering me lately. I find it depressing that in the midst of perhaps the most salient time in our country’s history, individuals are taking it upon themselves to encourage negativity and stupidity. Last week, Mr. Bill O’Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e.TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country. I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people…it’s so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweden_during_World_War_II if you want to see what I was referring to. I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!!
Who’da thunk it? Of the Fantastic Four, I thought that Reed Richards was the braniac. Way to go, Jessica.
As C&L sums it up:
If Alba’s an airhead/pinhead, what does that make O’Reilly?
I bet that, in his own heart, Bill O’Lie-ly knows what he is. More and more, I think there’s something to what I heard Keith Olbermann muse about on Al Franken’s Air America show a few years back. KO suspected that Billeaux doesn’t go after KO the same way that he does Franken because of height. KO is pretty tall and, for whatever else you might be able to say about Billeaux, he’s fairly tall too.
Franken? Not so much.
Jessica Alba? Also not so much.
And lets not discount Billeaux being able to pick on a woman…
thinking he could get away with it.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
