Paying less for gas? Thank Bill O'Reilly!

  1. Wait a minute. I thought he wanted to know who the one guy was who set the price of gas? How can he have all these well positioned insiders and not know who Mr. Oil Price is?

    What a tool.

  2. The H&R Curve: I think oil execs should raise prices to wean the world from its dependence on fossil fuels.

    So, everyone, when oil goes back up, you know who to thank.

  3. Okay, so backing up a few years…
    I guess this means Al Gore DID invent the internet.

  4. Ha ha ha.

  5. Jason-

    The answer was inside him all along.
    Mr. Oil Price is him.

  6. Truly a giant among men. He probably did that in his spare time while fighting the war against the War Against Christmas. If only they could harness his hot air to generate electricity.

    Gas is cheaper because we’re still releasing oil from the SPR and we’ve been importing a lot of gas and heating oil from perfidious Europe. France especially (gasp!)

    This idea that some secret cabal sets energy prices allows the denial to go on a little longer.

  7. Amazing. What’s even better is the folks who hate Bill the most think exactly the same way.

  8. I think we should all be glad that Bill O’Reilly is protecting us from being ripped off.

    On an unrelated note, you can buy a No Spin Varsity Jacket from billoreilly.com for a hundred fifty bucks.

  9. Since Bill solved the high gas-price thing, I wonder if he could do something about the filthy water in those squeegee buckets at the self-serve pumps.

  10. O’Reilly is intentionally and unintentionally hilarious.

    I want to see him and Chris Matthews across a table for 30 minutes and the winner is the one who has not lost his voice.

  11. O RLY?

    lol. I can’t believe that owl infected you. I didn’t realize it was contagious.

  12. I want to see him and Chris Matthews across a table for 30 minutes and the winner is the one who has not lost his voice.

    Yeah, but then everyone else still loses.

  13. Personally, I think he’s insane. He can’t really believe the things that come out of his mouth.

  14. Greg-Of course he doesn’t. None of his ilk do. Say it with me: demagoguery for profit.

  15. The problem is, I’m forced to watch this guy because the evil cable and satellite companies give me Fox News bundled with everything else. I wish there was something we could about that.

  16. smalls
    HAHAHAHA good one

  17. MP,

    Well, O’Reilly and O RLY seem meant for each other.

  18. So he went looking for the number one man who sets oil prices, and found out that HE was number one all along. How very Prisoner of him.

    Greg–
    He’d be crazy if he DID believe everything he says. That he doesn’t makes him, like most others in his league (Coulter, etc) less crazy, and more just opportunistic and crafty. They knw what will get them attention and make them money, and they say it.

    Personally, I find the O’Reilly Factor to be just as funny as the Daily Show. The Colbert Report is uneccesary, because O’Reilly is already a satire of himself. And I always like to go back to my favorite example: who else, itwo9/11 (so tired of typing “in the wake of”), had the courage to sit in front of a national audience and threaten to beat up a kid who’s dad had died in the WTC attack?

    -K

  19. Since Bill solved the high gas-price thing, I wonder if he could do something about the filthy water in those squeegee buckets at the self-serve pumps.

    I hear he has a loofah that is absolute magic…

    Isn’t his 15 minutes up yet?

  20. Oh, hell, let him try to take credit for his jawboning. Better than his other rants.

  21. Remember when Trump said that he could negotiate a better gasoline price? Maybe he and O’Reilly should team up.

  22. “O RLY ”

    hahahahahahah!

    brilliant!

    you da man!

    pigskin bus to tuna town!

    noam chomsky blow up dolls for everyone!!!!!

  23. It’s been done, GG.

    No stealing my schtick. If anyone here is going to do any owl-ing, it’s me.

    srsly.

    😀

  24. Let’s not forget that he also claims to have brought down the french economy singlehandedly.

  25. O RLY?

    Never could I have thought that four letters and a question mark would throw me into a hysterical fit of laughing.

    *golf clap*

  26. The answer was inside him all along.

    Then let me be the first to propose that we open him up and see what else is in there.

    Ah, but if Matthews and O’Reilly are in a sealed, air-tight room for the argument, then, well, everyone else wins!
