Bill O'Reilly: Socialist

Well well well! We liberals have caught Bill O'Reilly in another of his hypocritical lies! That conservative blowhard can't get away with announcing his... support of a government-backed public insurance option?

Huh. Here's the old "Worst Person In the World" chatting with a Heritage Foundation Hack about health care reform.

He, uh, he has just endorsed a public option, basically.

I want, not for personally for me, but for working Americans, to have a option, that if they don't like their health insurance, if it's too expensive, they can't afford it, if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks.

So there's that!

Bill is, of course, an avowed independent, beholden to no party, but what that usually means is that he will occasionally tell his audience that a certain Democrat it not necessarily a traitor. In the past, as far as we can remember, his independence has not led him to actually support any actual liberal policy proposal.
