Rotten Tomato Alert: Gillespie, O'Reilly get their Irish up


Reason editor Nick Gillespie will be entering the No Spin Zone tonight, with an appearance on Fox's The O'Reilly Factor.

The show airs at 8:00 and 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time, on the Fox News Channel.

The daily teaser on O'Reilly's site promises, "Dishing sexual dirt on the rap world!" but Reason's Man In Black will unfortunately be dishing about another topic. Gillespie, so mean he once shot a man just for snoring, will go head to head with O'Reilly on the subject of pre-emptive attacks.

  1. [Insert Obligatory Irish Joke Here]

  2. The leather jacketed one should begin the interview by punching O’Reilley in the nose. You know, to demonstrate how pre-emptive attacks work.

    In fact, I’ll buy 10 more subscriptions if he does.

  3. Gillespie, so mean he once shot a man just for snoring…

    Aaah! H&R-induced Time-Life Books commercial flashbacks! You’ll be hearing from my lawyer!

  4. Nick Gillespie, with the look and feel of hand-tooled leather.

  5. Damn, #6 beat me to it.

    I recently saw Drew Carey on O’Reilly. Bill seemed to want him to talk about libertarianism, but Drew was obviously there to drum up support for the American national soccer team. He had kind of a hard time getting Bill on topic.

    It was a bit awkward actually.

  6. I need a Guinness.

  7. Beer Douching is not an effective form of birth control, lass.

  8. That’s not what the nuns told me!

  9. Nuns lie. It’s all they’re good at.

  10. Anyone want to make an over/under on the total time of the segment versus the amount of time O’Reilly actually lets Nick speak?

  11. You mean, Plan B doesn’t work?

  12. You mean, Plan B doesn’t work?

  13. You mean, Plan B doesn’t work?

    Who can say? Let’s find out!


  14. Congratulations, Hambone! You have actually posted the all-time least mature comment here on Hit and Run, a devastatingly difficult feat considering the contenders. I think I speak for everyone here when I say, I commend you.

  15. Strong work, Hambone.

  16. I find hambone’s arguments intriguing, and I wish to subscribe to his newsletter.

  17. smacky (aka oo=D)!

    Being a results-driven person, I find this to be wonderful news!

    Thanks for the recognition!

  18. Hambone, is that a string of nonsense at the bottom of your post, or are you happy to see me?

  19. Since we’re off-topic, is it just me, or does the Reason Shamrock Girl look like she heard the photographer cut the cheese right before snapping that pic?

  21. Why are you guys always picking on me? I’m hot, admit it!

  22. Anyway I thought it was Nick Gillespie who was supposed to get it up?

  23. Shut up. Shut UP! …Turn his mic off. Get him out of here. Shut the hell up.

  24. Actually, he should tell Bill O’Reilly that he’s heard Bill has WMD at his house and ask him to prove that he doesn’t.

  25. Hambone,

    Your welcome. For the record, I don’t have a penis. Can you also do an ASCII vagina? That would be over the top.

    1. \`\““`||||““/`/

  26. A google search for ‘ascii vagina’ did bring up the following limerick:

    A musical lady from China
    Stretched catgut across her vagina
    The result of this trick
    (With a well-rosined prick)
    Was _Toccata and Fugue in D minor_

    I am so sorry…

  27. Just saw the clip. Good job Nick! Despite Blubbering Bill’s best attempts at shouting you down, you managed to get your point across well.

  28. Since I couldn’t avoid missing it, could anyone actually give me some real info?

  29. ***

  30. Nice toupe, Nick! It took balls to go on the no-fact zone and try to get a word in edgewise. Bit quixotic, but what are L-types if not that?

    The Shamrock Girl is your wife, right? Doesn’t weird you out to know that thousands of your readers are jerking off to her on a daily basis?
