He was dismissive in tone, with a smirk.Asked what the difference was between an "elitist gasbag" versus a "regular gasbag".

Bill, an elitist gasbag is a pompous insecure fool... who molests women.

Of course it is easy to moderate since no one visits it.

"Laura Ingram does a much better job substituting than OR."

I have a lot less respect for Ingraham since she apparently has no respect for herself as demonstrated by hanging out with the all-spin-zone meister, BOR.

Why would conservatives watch this egomaniac anyway? Turn his shallow program off and let his ratings tank.

you should really read the post correctly. I never said that he had no class. I stated he did not show much class by reverting to name calling.

I read Jim’s post and my first response was, “What’s this O’Reely thing he’s talking about?”

I didn’t watch the BORe when he was on some salacious teevee tabloid scandal show and I haven’t ever watched him since.

Then my next thought was, “Jim, after running this forum for so many years, you - especially YOU - should know the primary rule: DON’T FEED the TROLLS!”

I know it’s hard and I’ve held myself back many time from posting something in response to someone who is obviously standing, jumping up and down, waving his arms in the air, wetting his lacy pink panties and literally shouting, “Look at me, everybody, look at meeeeeeee!” It IS hard to resist.

But all Jim and Michelle Malkin have done is increase the BORe’s viewership and given him more ammunition. Everyone who knows what he is takes none of your energy to describe him; they already know and very likely have the same opinion.

Those who don’t know who he is - and the numbers must be legion - don’t deserve to have him called to their attention. Why inflict a worthless gasbag on some unknowing innocent who sees your response and goes to look and find out who this mental midjet is... thus resulting in another stultified, repulsed brain - at best - or a new unimaginably stupid (typically liberal) convert to his teevee drivel and scandal based idiology.

Jim, you of all people, should know that no matter what you write and no matter how cogent and coherent your response is to him, it will be taken out of context, twisted and maliciously lied about... all to win a few more viewers and ratings points.

If virtually no one ever tuned in to mr single-digit-IQ’s tabloid exercise in ego pumping, he’d fade quickly away. Thus the old BBS and forum adage: DON’T FEED THE TROLLS. (But to be honest, FR seems to have much more intelligent, higher IQ, and better looking trolls than BOR could ever hope to rise up to. And as you know, that’s saying a LOT!)

No matter how much I agree with what Jim wrote, making him irrelevant is more powerful than responding to his moronic rants.

Just my moronic 2 one hundreths of a buck.

The central point of O'Rielly's fatuous comments about Jim Robinson, Free Republic and Michelle Malkin is actually rather dangerous, particularly under the current Administration with their love of "Hate Crimes" and "Hate Speech".

How closely should a web sight be monitored?? How politically correct should the sight administrators be? Jim Robinson has always brought people up short when the strayed too far off of the Conservative range. Likewise he has limited posts that go the the the Skinhead side of the spectrum. As a result most of the posters, at least the long term posters, kind of, sort of mostly agree and if they don't, there are plenty of other sites they can gravitate toward. That is a long ways from Robinson assuming responsibility and being answerable for each and every comment.

Holding Jim Robinson responsible for my comments on a political discussion web site is beyond ludicrous to the point of being Orwellian.

The sad fact is that truth or unpopular opinions aren’t always appreciated nor welcomed. And no matter how hard you may try to explain yourself, it won’t matter. Either play follow the leader or drink lots of coffee because there’s a pissin’ match headin’ your way. ;)

I’m really starting to question O’Reilly’s impartiality. He gives Al Sharpton tons of free air time to legitimize his odious and racist ideology. You can find screwball stuff on any blog. He picked Malkin and Free Republic because he does not like conservatives. Ever since O’Reilly gave Geraldo a platform to smear Malkin, and she called him on it, he has it in for her.

“I want to like Glenn Beck. I do like Glenn Beck. But there comes a time when I can’t stand any more of him. He’s just too much. He needs to back away from the edge because he’s way too close.”

I don't agree with everything Glenn Beck says. He's a libertarian, I'm a conservative. But I find him entertaining and he has more substance on his show than the others. He interviews real people not just Fox's stable of talking heads. The Acorn stuff O’Reilly has, is directly from Glenn Beck’s show. I wish Glenn Beck had continued to run with it. I want to know why the FBI isn't investigating the money trail.

O'Reilly stands behind his statement money.

Playing both sides of the fence has made him very rich... and all he worries about now is staying that way.

In his bloated head we are ALL pinheads...and he is the patriot(or is that patriarch?).

The mere fact that he gets the ratings he gets is more a testament to the quality of his competition(and television in general), which fortunately for him is even more weak and pathetic than he and his program.

What gives O’Reilly the authority to “hold accountable” people exercising their right of free speech? I don’t play cop for the idiots expressing their views at the DU or DailyKOS. I don’t really care what O’Reilly says on his show. Why is it his job to police people at FR?

Unfortunately here along with any site or organization there are those who post or say comments that are no better then the people and views they claim to be.

In my opinion, it is people like you who are primarily responsible for the failure of the Right to gain any ground in the last few decades. You would apply some ambiguous standard of "goodness" to the behavior of people who are engaged in a war for the very soul of this country. For some reason, people like you would rather lose that war than say anything that might make the anti-American Left dislike you. You are no different from those who send our soldiers into combat, then turn right around and prosecute them every time they even look at a terrorist the wrong way. Self-censorship because you don't want to appear mean when your enemy has no restraints whatsoever is the surest recipe for failure ever devised.

The words “Elitist Gasbag” might not scare BOR as much as the words “Glenn Beck” do, but both explain the reason for his falling popularity.

Fore-warned is fore-armed.

Actually, to my way of looking at it, some folks just seem to go out of their way to find things to get all high & mighty about. Weird cranky people they are.

Check out his job with the ACORN bots tonight.

BOR's powder puff line of questioning was too much for me to stomach after about 3 minutes. Softball city. Thankfully Glenn Beck is conducting real and ongoing investigation of that criminal enterprise.

You're not missing anything. I've watched a few segments here and there. I heard about the Acorn segment being advertised, but he didn't really have anything the first night, so I figured he probably didn't have much the second night either and didn't watch it. I've probably watched less than an hour of his show in the last six months. I don't know where he gets the ratings. I can only stand him for a few minutes. This fight with Jim and Michelle is enough to make sure I don't waste my time. I remember the last time he singled out Free Republic as a hate site.

You know what probably really frosts Bill O'Reilly about FR?

FR covers the news; and BO covers body language and Bill's latest books and interests.

Deep down maybe he really yearns to be a newsman.

His ACORN interview was a joke. He was softer on them than he was on Obama. Complete waste of time. Frank Luntz even called him out on it.

Yes, but his last question salvaged the interview. He asked them if they would open their books, and their answer was "no."

O'Reilly said that, as taxpayers, we're entitled to know where our money is going.

He's right. But he was very, very soft on them. The most embarrassing segment was when he glossed over the fact that 200 different organizations use the New Orleans address. The ACORN CEO said that it was their "former headquarters," and O'Reilly just let it go.

I can't think of a one good reason why 200 organizations would use a single physical address as a mail drop.

Saying BOR is an “elitest gasbag” is an observation, not name calling. It happens to be an accurate description of the man.

Frankly, I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone - be they left leaning or right leaning - would listen to the blowhard. (again, a description based on observation, not name calling)

I tried numerous times to listen to BOR, but just couldn’t stand it. He is positively boring and infuriating at the same time and I didn’t think that was even possible.

The real damage caused by Mr. Blowhard O. Gasbag (yes that IS name calling) is that the leftist media successfully holds him up as a typical example of a conservative, which he of course is not. He is a useful idiot for the left as he is easily used by them for propaganda purposes.

And just in case BOR happens upon this: Listen up you self important puffed up bag of wind - this is MY opinion and Jim Robinson isn’t responsible for it.

No the problem are those on the right here on this site and elsewhere that talk about how the tactics of the left are wrong and they should act better, but these same conservatives that denounce the tactics of the left go around and pull the same tactics in the name of conservatism. If they are going to be holier then though and decry the tactics of the opposing group then they should ‘t be pulling the same tactics themselves.
