Bill's Equivocation

It's so common that it really should be a drinking game: someone accuses FOX knuckle-dragger Bill O'Reilly of being a right-winger or a conservative, an accusation that's trivial and inarguable insofar as we're dealing with reality and using words according to their actual meaning.

In reply, O'Reilly (or in this case, his handlers at FOX) insists he's "an independent."

Note that Bill-O has replied with party affiliation to a charge about political philosophy.

The fact is, he is a creature of the right wing, regardless of his membership or non-membership in any political party. He seems ashamed to admit he holds right-wing views, and so would any decent person, but that's beside the point.
