Bill O’Reilly returned to the Factor last night for the first time in a week and unleashed a torrent of pent-up anger over the Supreme Court decisions that dared to come down while he was gone. After dismissing arguments about Federalism — “no one knows what that is” — the Fox News host insisted, “This is very simple,” and claimed the Court “has put aside its mandate to uphold the Constitution” and has “morphed into a political organization.” It’s not that he’s against gay marriage, per se, but he just needed an opportunity to ignore legal specifics and yell “B.S.!”
Juan Williams, also not making much sense, said Justice Roberts, as in the Obamacare decision, ruled in the “political best interest of the court,” causing the host to blow a fuse. “That’s not his job!” he screamed. “That’s not his job, Juan!” It’s vintage O’Reilly, and it is beautiful.
