Wanna Bet This Will Be The Focus of Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo Tomorrow?

In his zeal to discredit Sarah Palin for having the guts to put Bill in his place in order to fully articulate her answer to his question in what turned out to be her last appearance on The Factor, I suspect the ol’ blowhard will lead off his Talking Points Memo with this story:

Dick Cheney has some advice for Mitt Romney on choosing a running mate: Don’t pick another Sarah Palin.
In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News, that John McCain’s decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008 was “a mistake” — one that it is important from Romney not to repeat.
It’s subject on which Cheney has some unique experience. He helped Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush lead their vice presidential searches and, of course, served as vice president for eight years. He’s also privately offered some advice to both

Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney’s search for a runningmate, on the process.

Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was harsh in his assessment of McCain’s decision to pick Palin.
“That one,” Cheney said, “I don’t think was well handled.”

“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?’”
Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.

“I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. She – attractive candidate. But based on her background, she’d only been governor for, what, two years. I don’t think she passed that test…of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.”

Never mind that prior to becoming a governor, Sarah Palin was an oil and gas commissioner, two-term mayor, member of city council and small business owner; in Dick Cheney’s mind, she was “unqualified” to be VP. He’s certainly entitled to his opinion, but it’s disappointing that 1.) he omitted significant portions of Palin’s accomplished resume, 2.) he purposely chose to give unnecessary ammunition to the left, and 3.) he further alienated the conservative base of the GOP, who are already rightfully fuming that Palin has yet to receive an invitation to speak at the Republican convention.

But in addition to the Obama Lapdog media that’s certainly “lapping up” this latest slam against Palin by another popular conservative within the party, it’s a sure bet that Palin detractor Bill O’Reilly will further ignite the situation by making this a prominent feature on the next broadcast.

I am so sick of these baseless attacks against a woman who went on to energize the tea party; assist with the takeover of the US House with an impressive record of endorsements; redefine the debate against Obamacare in 2009 with one phrase, “death panels”; take the fight to left relentlessly on their own turf (e.g. her rallying speech in Madison, Wisconsin last year), and travel the country supporting strong, principled and constitutionally conservative candidates — all while dealing with the most repulsive attacks and frightening death threats against her family, including her youngest child.

Could any of the GOP pansies face such adversity with the same courage, grace and humor?

Yeah, the question answers itself.

Will Bill O’Reilly run with this story which was also in the news cycle this weekend? If he really is “fair and balanced” he should:

Not sure what kind of psychosis people like Kathy Griffin suffer from, but for a grown woman to launch such a despicable, vulgar and tasteless tirade against an 18 year-old girl says a helluva lot more about her than it does about the Palins. Perhaps has-been Griffin is just jealous because on her best day even in her youth she never looked as good as Willow Palin on her worst day. And for any member of her audience to find her particular brand of “comedy” funny proves just how far we’ve fallen as a culture. To smear an innocent teenager simply because you dislike her mother’s politics is about as low as you can go….of course, when a little boy like Trig Palin isn’t even off-limits to lefty scum, it’s a validation that we really are engaged in a battle between good and evil. It’s also more proof that liberalism really is a mental disorder.

What say you Bill?
