how about this scenario: send franken and o'reilly over there at the same time. if franken kicks o'reilly's ass, the troops come home immediately. and if o'reilly takes franken, o'reilly names the withdrawal date. sounds fair to me.
 
2007-11-20 08:55:03 PM  
I always suspected the USO hated the troops. This confirms it.

They're both douchebags, but O'Reilly could take Franken easy. That's be like Penn vs. Teller, except with a whole lot of douchebaggery.

Franken was a wrestler in high school and has a reputation as a jock. O'Reilley, not so much.

They should duke it out on PPV as a USO benefit. I'll have my people call their people and put it together.

Oh, please, still pulling this "two sides of the same coin" shiat? As soon as Franken cuts someone's mic, yells at them to shut up, tells the son of a man that died in 9/11 that he is an embarrassment to his father, and generally lies about every single thing that he has ever said, then you can call Franken anywhere close to O'Reilly.

Until then, STFU.

All I said was that they're both douchebags. A little sensitive?
 
2007-11-20 09:59:43 PM  
I bet O'Reilly secretly fantasizes about rubbing falafel all over Franken's body and licking it off. He seems like a wide stance kinda guy.

I disagree. I think he's a whiny, obnoxious, partisan douchebag. O'Reilly is an bullying, obnoxious, partisan douchebag.

I'd say that sums up Al Franken-douche to a tee.
 
2007-11-20 10:18:07 PM  

I am not a fan of either. However O'Reilly said this year, the article said Franken was there in 2006.


If there were no others besides he and Toby Keith there in 2007 he is correct.



Not that I consider O'Reilly or Franken celebreties, Toby Keith perhaps; he sings -not my kind of music, but at least he has a talent that others do not. O'Reilly and Franken are just irritating. I have undershorts that are irritating.


I do however support the USO and I am working to open a branch in Central Florida.

Pssst, here's a secret: Al Franken has never done any of that. Bill O'Reilly has.

Son of God: Pssst, here's a secret: Al Franken has never done any of that.

That's because he's a different kind of douchebag. Though I will grant you he has a much better sense of humor.
 
2007-11-20 10:32:43 PM  
There are plenty of very entertaining and humorous conservatives, like ndotseth.

The only sad part is that they are generally trying to be serious, not funny.

If you want douchebag bookends, you should pair O'Reilly with Randi Rhodes. Ugh.

In that case, you would be wrong. He's definitely a douchebag.

bronyaur1: ... and people pay attention to Bill O'Reilly... um, why?

Don't you know? Because he's a VERY important person who has done important things in life. Like talk. And talk. And be a douche to some women. And then talk. And then yell a little bit because he's important. Then talk.

Hell, I've even been to Afghanistan this year. Bill O'Reilley is a douche.

Yeah, but Franken is a lying asshat. The troops would take Franken down.

Franken has called people buttboys, and a whole host of nasty things. And Minnesota can't stand him!

I've been to Afganistan this year so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.
 
2007-11-21 04:59:21 AM  
If I ever win the lottery I'm going to set up an endowment that pays $500 to any caller that can slip the word "luffa" into a live call to O'Reilley.

Stuff like that just pisses him off
 
2007-11-21 05:01:53 AM  
I heard that sometimes media figures say things that aren't true. What jerks.
 
2007-11-21 05:04:55 AM  
I'm in Kuwait, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

/due to the USO I've met: Charles Barkley, David Allen Grier, Bo Jackson, Drew Brees, Harlem Globe Trotters, Washington Redskin & Denver Bronco Cheerleaders (thank you God), Dave Attel, and about half a dozen other comedians or muscians

//but O'Reilly is right, noone ever comes here.

Holden C: If I ever win the lottery I'm going to set up an endowment that pays $500 to any caller that can slip the word "luffa" into a live call to O'Reilley.

You could thrown in "Olbermann", "falafel", and "Malmedy" just to round out the list.
 
2007-11-21 05:10:12 AM  
I think he meant the only celibate celebrities...cos really, are either of them getting any?

on that note, are any women attracted to bill?
 
2007-11-21 05:14:29 AM  
I think Al Franken is smug and self-righteous. He is still ten times the man that O'Reilly is. O'Reilly is an arrogant, condescending, hypocritical, lying toad.
 
2007-11-21 05:16:37 AM  
The douche awards this year is a two horse race. BO and this guy: img209.imageshack.us
 
2007-11-21 05:17:38 AM  
I agree with the notion of sending them both over there, but not to have it out with each other.

Entertainment tours bring out the best in professional entertainers regardless of their personal politics. Franken has been moved & humbled by the dedication & strength that our soldiers & sailors possess, and I am convinced that O'Reilly would embrace those same feelings as the emerge in him.

Send them both, simply because the troops would love it.

Why does anybody STILL listen to anything that comes out of bill o'reillys trap??
 
2007-11-21 05:30:10 AM  
I'm sure Kathy Griffin went over there this year?

Orallo
Why does anybody STILL listen to anything that comes out of bill o'reillys trap??

Seriously!

Can you believe, even after the harassment incident with those weird dildo tapes, they let him go on The View to hawk his crap book?

What self-respecting producer would allow that goober to be featured in the "hanging with the ladies" spot?

Ha ha!

yeziam You must not be from MN.

You would be wrong there. Grew up in Edina, currently live in Eden Prairie.

And Franken has extremely high negative ratings. I know a lot of die hard Democrats who will not vote for Franken if he's on the Democratic ticket for Senator.

Ummm...

The USO said it has sent seven entertainment tours to Afghanistan in 2007, after 12 tours - including one with O'Reilly nemesis Al Franken - went to the war-torn country in 2006.

Maybe, maybe not. But I sure as heck am, and I can't stand his politics. He was great as a comedian (well, not counting that Stuart movie), but I never liked him on the radio. He does have quite a bit of support up here - we'll know how much for sure when he goes up against Coleman.

Oh, and one more thing - everything written above about Bill O'Reilly is true. Grade-A douchebag all the way.
 
2007-11-21 05:51:48 AM  
Geeze, so many negative comments about Al Franken. Franken has been over to the war zone what, 3 or 4 times in past years? Franken once said the reason O'Reilly hasn't gone on USO tours is because he has no talent.
 
2007-11-21 05:57:15 AM  
O'Reilly? Franken? Entertainment?

My morale asplode.
 
2007-11-21 05:59:25 AM  
O'reilly's a liar? Who would have guessed it.

The year I spent at Abu Ghraib Al Franken led a USO tour to visit us. That douche o'liely never leaves the safety of major bases.
 
2007-11-21 06:01:39 AM  
Franken is certainly partisan and can definitely be irritating sometimes, but comparing him to O'Reilly is a pretty big stretch.


Randi Rhodes on the other hand...

Occasionally, O'Reilly actually seems to be a decent thoughtful guy. He even seems to have a sense of humor sometimes. Then, he starts screeching about how Media Matters is the moral equivalent of the Nazis for having the nerve to post quotes of the more ridiculous things he's said.
