Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Stupid White Man of the Week: Bill O'Reilly

The terminally obtuse O'Reilly gets this week's coveted Stupid White Man award not just for his casual use of the term "lynching party" when referring to Michelle Obama; no, here at SWMOTW, we know using loaded racist language is easy (especially on FOX). Bill gets the nod for his clumsy, "I'm sorry if anyone was offended" non-apology. Congratulations, Bill!

I haven't paid much attention to O'Reilly for years, but I tuned in a night or two aftet this happened. He was going on about how the "context" of the comment made it OK.

I'm not sure if others agree, but this comment is far worse than Don Imus' dumb "nappy" joke. And Imus actually sincerely apologized. O'Reilly did not, and likely never will.

Yeah, and Falafal O'Reilly will get away with it because FOX is shameless.
