Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Bill O'Reilly was shouting at Laura Ingraham in a locked cage match between two right-wingers over anti-gay tactics as Bill O'Reilly was trying to put Ingraham back in her place. But the real money quote was this one made by O'Reilly about Rush Limbaugh:

"There's no feud between me and Limbaugh," he responded. "I don't talk to Limbaugh."
In other words, "SCREW YOU!"

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Bill O'Reilly claims that other opponents of gay marriage were simply thumping the Bible and that they would claim the moral high ground if they would just use rational arguments. Laura Ingraham thought that he was being disrespectful:

Ingraham again underscored her point that O'Reilly did not need to use the phrase "thump the Bible." She explained that she felt that the left "loves to see conservatives fighting" and that O'Reilly had been "disrespectful" to "people who really try to live their lives according to the Bible." An exasperated O'Reilly noted that his argument was from a policy perspective and he didn't believe citing the Bible was permissible in a policy argument.

O'Reilly gave Ingraham time to explain herself but after hearing her out told her, "I'm disappointed in you."

In other words, screw you too.

The fact of the matter is that once gay marriages start to happen and once people start to see for themselves that the sky is not about to fall, then the scaremongering about it being a threat to the institution of marriage will get more and more ridiculous.

But this brawling is part of a larger danger -- the GOP is getting more and more divided. The Libertarians are brawling with the militarists, the evangelicals are starting to break from the GOP, and we have a pope that actually (gulp) cares for the poor. And given their belief that they are always right and given their unwillingness to change, it is only a matter of time before the cracks grow greater and greater.
