Bilious Bill O’Reilly: Come on, a lady president?

Bill O’Reilly may have studied at BU, but it’s clear that he didn’t show up for class the day the faculty explained that women are not fragile thin-skinned creatures made of porcelain, entirely unsuited to the mead-hall environment of high political office.

(What? You didn’t know Ill Bill was a BU alum? He earned a master of arts in broadcast journalism from COM, in the 70s. He was on campus at the same time as Howard Stern. One supposes they didn’t work together to co-found the BU Society Against Misogyny.)

Speaking on air with Fox analyst Kristen Powers and GOP strategist Kate Obenshain last week, O’Reilly asks: “There has got to be some downside to having a woman president, right?”

There haven’t been that many strong women leaders throughout history. But when you’re president of the United States you have to deal with people like Putin, you have got to deal with the real ornery Mullahs in Iran. Look, the Mullahs in Iran, they think women are like subspecies.

Actually, I can think of a downside! when we elect a female POTUS, we’ll have to listen to big-headed gascons spend four years pissing and moaning that there’s a uterus in the Oval Office.

The up-side to that scenario? It could be eight years instead of four 🙂
