Bill O'Reilly gets it

Every time I watch Bill O'Reilly on the Fox News Channel, I'm reminded of how terrific he is.  Last night, he brilliantly compared the two huge news stories of the new year:  the death of President Gerald Ford and the hanging of Saddam Hussein. 

Bill pointed out that these two stories are a perfect illustration of the ongoing battle in our world between good and evil.  We said good-bye to a kind, decent, patriotic American President.  And we bid good riddance to a brutal, evil dictator who thought nothing of having innocent human beings slaughtered.

In a way, the deaths of Gerald Ford and Saddam Hussein are a metaphor for the war on terror.  We have good, decent, freedom-loving people who completely understand why we fight.  And we have another side that only wants to tear down the Bush Administration, attack the military effort, and complain every step of the way.

Once more, O'Reilly's "No Spin Zone" does a masterful job in putting difficult topics in a form and style we can all relate to.

Way to go, O'Reilly!
