Bill O'Reilly Sends Flowers to Helen Thomas
mediabistro.com ^ | Feb. 13, 2009 | Chris

Posted on 02/13/2009 12:02:00 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

No, Fox News's Bill O'Reilly doesn't have a secret Valentine's Day crush on the dean of the White House Press Corps. It's an apology bouquet, of sorts.

O'Reilly called Thomas, the "wicked witch of the east" earlier this week on his show. SoupCans talked with Thomas who got the flowers today. Her only response: "I'd like to thank Bill O'Reilly for the flowers."

Way to take the high road Helen. Will you be our Valentine?

What a wimp! I hope he laced them with something....this lady has destroyed a lot of good and good people. As far as I am concerned she is “the Terrorist”!

I’d have send her a bouquet of poison ivy.

With a few nettles mixed in.

Random question: is O’Reilly generally considered a RINO?

‘O’Reilly called Thomas, the “wicked witch of the east” earlier this week on his show;’

This is simply FALSE. He did no such thing, I watched it live, then again on the repeat that night, then AGAIN last night.

He said ‘her voice sounds like the wicked witch of the east’.

The only thing incorrect is BOR mixed up his ‘witches’ from Wizard of Oz. Dorothy killed the Wicked Witch of the East with her falling house.

BOR NEVER SAID whats stated up above, folks.

There was a danve scene in Saturday Night Fever where a girl is trying to get John Travolta to have sex with her. She said the last guy she had sex with sent her flowers. Travolta said, “maybe he thought you were dead.”

Now, now. Sometimes we have to send flowers for people who died. Helen just happens to keep resurrecting after being Satan’s whore.

Sure, the story says he sent her flowers, but they neglect to state which kind. My guess......

Poppies... Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep. Sleep. Now they'll sleep!

High road?!!!

She called the cowardly, murderous Islamofascists of Pakistan and Afghanistan "so-called terrorists."

If that's the high road, what's the low road?

Oh good grief! He claims he actually said that her voice “sounds” like that. He didn’t call her a witch. Of course, I didn’t see that program. Just reporting what I heard last night. Only reason I watched it was because Laura Ingraham was on.

O’Reilly needs to get over himself.

I watched him last night and he started up again. I supposed I'll catch flack about this but I really don't care. I don't like any of Helen's political stances but I didn't like what BO said either. She's misguided but still an old lady and yes I think he should have apologized and sent her the flowers.

"A hag (or crone) is a wizened old woman, or a kind of fairy or goddess having the appearance of such a woman, often found in folklore and children's tales such as Hansel and Gretel.Hags are often seen as malevolent, but may also be one of the chosen forms of shapeshifting deities, such as the Morrígan or Badb, who are seen as neither wholly beneficent nor malevolent.The term appears in Middle English, and might be short for hægtesse, an Old English term for witch."

You want to see something hysterical, watch this. It’s Dennis Miller’s response to the dustup.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxf3XUV5UO8

The clip has some other stuff first, so just move the button to 4:45.

Hilarious!

She’s a vicious anti semite, a political hack, and lies in print weekly.

I don’t give bonus points for aging, sorry.

Turns out Meghan Kelly set him straight last night, Wicked Witch of the East was the good witch, Wicked Witch of the West was the bad witch.

My dad say’s the same. I have never listened to him...too little time and too many kids. I like Beck and Ingraham...also Hannity and Greta. But like I said, I may watch them 2-3 nights in a row then go 3 weeks without watching them.

O’Reilly has repeated over and over and over that he is an Independent...I think that disallows him being a RINO.

He’d have to be a Republican before he would be considered a RINO...he has ALWAYS said time and time again that he is an Independent.

Good grief...he just said her voice sounded like a witch's, he did not insult her looks or intelligence. I would say that Helen just needs to grow some skin so she can let these kind of things roll off her back, but she has too much skin hanging loose on her now ; )

How's that for a real insult?

And no I won't apologize!

Once again the media edits a quote. I believe it should have been:

Her only response: "I'd like to thank Bill O'Reilly for the flowers- they were delicious."
