Having just gotten a Twitter account this weekend, Elisabeth Hasselbeck was offended by his comment that people updating their friends, via the internet, on mundane aspects of their lives, isn't contributing to their own mental advancement. (But somehow talk radio does?) Anyway, Hasselbeck went after him, but really, I think she was just annoyed at him because she thought she had a conservative ally in O'Reilly, and wanted him to agree with her that President Obama's "Special Olympics" comment on The Tonight Show was glossed over by the liberal media. But Bill said that it's not an important political issue and he doesn't care.
Elisabeth strikes me as the type that gets personally offended if she personally participates in an activity that someone else doesn't like. She gets mad at the disliker, because she considers it a personal affront directed at her.
I cannot stand to be around that kind of person.
