O’Reilly And Beck, Tweedledee And Tweedledum Of Fox News
What’s becoming a nightly tradition for Fox News is O’Reilly interviewing Glenn Beck, and they were at it again last night.
As I watched in amazement, all I could think about was the 19th century poem which stated:
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.
Of course these characters are based on the Lewis Carroll story, Alice Through the Looking Glass (Alice in Wonderland).
Though Beck and O’Reilly weren’t quarreling among themselves, in fact so much “love” gushed between the two that it was a wonder they didn’t come out for gay marriages, but they sure have a quarrel with the rest of the world.
I roared in laughter as O’Reilly called the “left bitter and unhappy people” with Tweedledum Beck looking like a bobblehead doll nodding and agreeing his teary eyed approval.
I always thought that “bitter people” were the ones who maligned others while they promoted themselves and their own delusions of grandeur, like, let say, Beck and O’Reilly.
When reading “Wonderland”, one has to suspend belief in reality as the characters interact with Alice. So it is with Beck and O’Reilly, for reality is not part of the Factor.
