Be prepared: The big "get" last night at the Democrat Convention was propagandist Michael Moore's appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor." For the past several months, O'Reilly has at times been woefully unprepared for some of his interviews. Just a week or two ago O'Reilly was railing against some judge's ruling in a case, but instead of quoting the exact language from the judge's decision, he was relying on (if I recall correctly) an editorial from the New York Daily News. Several months back he was interviewing a good friend of mine and he kept referring to "her children" and "her kids." Problem: She's only got one.
So it should really be no surprise that O'Reilly did a less than stellar job when Michael Moore appeared pretending to be the American soldier's best friend.
During the interview, Moore repeatedly pressed O'Reilly to answer whether or not he would sacrifice his own child in a battle for Fallujah. O'Reilly's lame, repeated response was that he would be willing to sacrifice his own life to do it.
Leave aside for a moment that "the children" -- who are all 18 years old or older -- chose to join the military on their own. The proper -- and devastating -- response O'Reilly should've given Moore would have been to quote Moore's own words.
The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.
For Moore's Minutemen to win, those American soldiers he's pretending to be so concerned about must die -- lots of them.
With a little research, O'Reilly could've exposed Moore for who he really is -- a traitor.
