Given that I gave Kevin Drum (aka CalPundit) a hard time over taxation earlier in the week, it seems only fair to link to something that we agree on. Kevin provides a link to this amusing (at least I find it amusing) analyis at the Progressive Review of Bill O’Reilly’s recent interview with Jacob Sullum. While I can tolerate O’Reill on occasion, I have long found his “No Spin Zone” bit to be tiresome, and he is, shall we say, an agressive interviewer (I love the very representative quote in the piece about giving “the last word”). Further, he really isn’t, contrary to popular perception, a conservative. His rhetoric tends to be pretty populistic, and indeed isn’t so much ideological, as opinionated.

    Was this the “discussion” about drug use? I usually like O’Reilly because he puts people’s feet to the fire, but he was way out of line with Sullum. He is entirely irrational when it comes to ANY drug discussion. He was so beside himself that he called Sullum a “libertine”, which prompted Sullum to coolly point out that he was not a libertine.

    Oh, and O’Reilly is definitely not conservative. His constant bleating for more federal ovesight of various programs and for the electric crap puts him right on par with Bill Maher.
