    During a segment of today’s Imus in the Morning, the two had a little fun at O’Reilly’s expense, mocking his bombastic persona and his forthcoming book Killing Jesus.

    “I don’t like O’Reilly that much. He’s a jerk,” Imus told Beckel. “But I can say that because we’ve been friends for 30 years. Sometimes he can be okay, but his show is great. That’s a great television program.”

    “You can argue all you want about O’Reilly’s personality,” Beckel said of his absent colleague, “but he does know how to do a TV show.”

    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse.

    Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Walmart

    Dear Mrs. Woolf,

    Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Woolf, are listed below and are “documented by our video surveillance cameras”:

    1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-
    minute intervals.

    3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the
    women’s restroom.

    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official
    voice, ‘Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away’. This caused the
    employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted in management getting involved causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

    5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to reserve a bag of
    chips.

    6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

    7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the
    children shoppers they could come in if they would bring pillows and
    blankets from the bedding department – to which twenty children
    obliged.

    8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began
    crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’
    Emergency Medics were called.

    9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

    10. September 10: While handling guns in the Sports department, he
    asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

    11. October 3: Darted around the Store suspiciously while loudly
    humming the ‘ Mission Impossible’ theme.

    12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.

    13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed
    through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

    14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!

    15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where the fitting room was.

    And last, but not least:

    16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited
    awhile, and then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in
    here.’ One of the Staff passed out.

    I wonder if I’ll have to go along on many more shopping trips?

  • AppleStinx

    Speaking of Walmart, those “merchandise fees (recycling and environmental disposal fees)” reared their ugly head again. I had forgotten about them as I was ready to buy a new monitor. I canceled the purchase. Does anyone know whether these “merchandise fees” are particular to Walmart, or are they built into the price of certain electronics and Walmart simply charges them at checkout?

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–all the hundreds of millions of dollars of false advertising the right wing GOP did to defeat Obama and the dems FAILED–because it was FALSE ADVERTISING and the American people got it. And all the GOP effort to ruin the US economy FAILED. If the GOP can’t win given this, they’ll NEVER win and all Chriscee’s lunatic babblings won’t help……

  • usa8888

    THe right wing GOP wants to eliminate Medicare (with Vouchercare) and Social Security….what do you think of that, Seniors????

  • usa8888

    Here are the right wing priorities, which Chriscee agrees with:
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • usa8888

    And here’s the thing, the low education right wing types on this blog can not state the right wing GOP accomplishments during Obama’s term–talk about embarrassing! Rat’s had 2 months to do it and has come up empty…….I’ll start you out—1)Obstruction and 2) support of legitimate rape right wing GOP old white guys…..take it from here

  • Chriscee

    2 CAN PLAY THIS GAME!!

    LEFT wing priorities that USA AGREES WITH.
    1) Support Ab.ortionists like Kermit Gosnell and say Planned Parenthood makes you blush.
    2) Make it so that NO ONE in the USA can own a gun.
    3) PROTECT private jet owners from beings TAXED.
    4) Make sure that no one can believe in God and the Bible.
    5) RAID Social Security, Medicare and medicaid to make it look like they have a surplus. When in fact there was NO SURPLUS.
    6)Taking 716 BILLION dollars from MEDICARE and then lying about it.
    7) promote racism TO THE MAX, along with bigotry and general backward thinking
    8) worship lunatics like Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow and then send them all money as well.
    9) Attend the DNC Comedy Convention where GOD IS TAKEN OUT THEIR PLATFORM.
    10) watch msnBS–the propaganda arm of the left wing (bias 24/7)
    11) ruin the economy by spending big, implementing massive taxes and regulations some that should NEVER BE DONE IN OBAMA INDUCED recession or depression.
    12) PROTECTING ISLAMIC JIHAD TERRORISTS AND THEIR AL QUEDA BACKERS.
    13) Pretending that HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT is good for the economy.
    14) Ignoring the fact that 1 in 5 households is now on FOOD STAMPS.
    15) Tax Hard Working Americans out the wazoo
    16) Spend like drunken sailors
    17) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • usa8888

    His is for the uneducated right wing like Chriscee and RAt:
    The key point is that austerity practices by a government during a fragile economy or recession is a recipe for DISASTER—Europe is a perfect example. After their austerity practices, they have massive unemployment and negative economic growth. You don’t cut spending to grow an economy and jobs! The right wing uneducated can’t grasp this because they have no education. Obama is setting a course to control the sale and use of mass murder weapons (which 90% of the country agrees with); he is addressing global warming (but the creationist right wing doesn’t believe the earth is more than 10,000 years old so they have trouble understanding global warming); America is the global leader now is oil and natural gas production; Obama has made more money available for college education over the objections of right wingers; and he is trying to reduce health costs which the GOP is content to see increase 100% every 10 years.

  • Chriscee

    Medicare has already been decimated by Obama. He took 716 billion dollars from medicare to fund his FAILED OBAMAIDON’TCARE…

    Paul Ryan had a plan to FIX medicare and Obama laughed it off…but then Obama comes back with his OWN SIMILAR PLAN. Hilarious!!

    Ryan’s plan would NOT have affected anyone under the age of 55.

    Change the medicare age to 70.

    Let’s do Obama’s thing…if you make over 5 Million dollars a year…YOU DON’T QUALIFY FOR MEDICARE OR MEDICAID.

    How’s that?

    Why does Warren Buffett get Medicare…when he touts Obama..who ROBBED MEDICARE OF 716 BILLION DOLLARS.????

    Just more money laundering for Obama.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee has just succinctly stated the reasons why the American people favored Obama and rejected the lunatic right wing ideology. See her comment above. Chris’s comments might work with right wing uneducated fools but they didn’t work with the American people…

  • Chriscee

    USA you seriously need to study economics. You don’t know your head from your a$$hole. Please educate yourself..and stop posting BS from thinkprogress or moveon…it’s OLD BORING AND TIRESOME.

    Do you EVER come up with a thought of your own? Are you capable?

  • Chriscee

    Kathleen Sebelius ADMITTED under OATH….That Obama took 716 BILLION from Medicare to pay for Obama DO NOTHING care!!

  • usa8888

    Obama took NO money from Medicare–that’s the lie that Robme tried last November–it didn’t work then and it won’t work now. Obama is expanding Medicare and making it self sufficient for 50 more years. The right wing wants to ELIMINATE Medicare and replace it with Vouchercare, costing seniors billions…..

  • usa8888

    Chirs invents information just like she makes up poll results–the American people know right wing lies when they see them…..
