Bill O’Reilly Mans Up, Apologizes for Being an Idiot

Bill O’Reilly might be many things, but at least he’s a man of his word. This time around, anyway. The controversial Republican boldly declared in March that he would “apologize for being an idiot” should the Supreme Court uphold Obama’s health care law. Following the ruling that Obamacare would, in fact, remain in place, O’Reilly was strangely quiet. Of course, he was “off” last week, which may explain why we didn’t hear much from ol’ Bill during that time.

On Monday, much to the surprise of his many detractors, O’Reilly stepped up to the plate and proclaimed himself to be an idiot. In a roundabout way, mind you. Of course, in order to protect his image, he then brought Bernie Goldberg onto his show to discuss what certain “far left smear sites” thought about his sort-of-apology. So much for being the bigger man.

“I’m not really sorry, but I am a man of my word, so I apologize for not factoring in the John Roberts situation,” O’Reilly said. “Truthfully, I never in a million years thought the chief justice would go beyond the scope of the Commerce Clause debate and into taxation. I may be an idiot for not considering that.”

What do Twitter users think about Bill O’Reilly’s sort-of apology? As always, you can sample their reactions to the news by taking a trip into the space below. It sort of goes without saying that O’Reilly apologists aren’t all that numerous on the micro-blogging site, so do take that into consideration before shaking your angry fist at the screen.

    HE is pretty vain but not any worse than the rest of the talking heads. (don’t know how any one 6′ 4” could brag about it and have a brain!!)

    So it wasn’t a PERFECT apology? When’s the last time you saw some liberal puke like Bill Mahr, Keith Olberman, or Rachael Madcow apologize for some of their despicable comments?

    Bill O Reilly is a sort of an Idiot like the Grand Canyon is a sort of a hole in the ground.

    He has admitted his is an Independant. He is not a Republican. The writer is WRONG and doesn’t know what he is talking about.
