O'REILLY: I'll tell you why [religion's] not a scam, in my opinion: tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can't explain that.

SILVERMAN: Tide goes in, tide goes out?

O'REILLY: See, the water, the tide comes in and it goes out, Mr. Silverman. It always comes in, and always goes out. You can't explain that.

Crooks and Liars' comment: "The sun rises and the sun sets. The clock strikes twelve at noon and midnight. Neither of these prove the existence of God, but don't tell BillO. He'd be crushed under the weight of the moon's gravity."

Because those that own the cameras know there's $$$ to be made by appealing to the lowest common denominator. And, once you've got the hook in the fish, it's easy to lower the bar even farther. There's money to be made in fear, ignorance, hatred, and demonizing others. How to keep the great unwashed masses as their allies who will pay for more? Infantile and  sophomoric comments like "surrender monkeys" and "freedom fries" to describe a NATO ally who refused to engage in W's war of aggression in Iraq. If the mob will grunt in approbation to that, selling the idea that atheists, LGBTQ community, scientists and intellectuals are less than normal humans becomes easy.

Probably because of the reasons you have just stated. He works for a "news service" awash with ignorance and it fit's him like a glove
