O’Reilly: Future Debate Moderator?

oreilly_10-3.jpgMarketwatch’s Jon Friedman has an idea to spice up the presidential debates — have Bill O’Reilly serve as moderator.

Friedman interviewed O’Reilly about the idea, and the FNC anchor enjoyed the prospect. “I’d love to host the debates,” O’Reilly said. “A lot of people would watch.”

O’Reilly said the current moderators were fine but “too nice,” Friedman writes: “He grinned and said with characteristic bluster, ‘I’d be, ‘What do you mean?!’”

Anyway, let’s get to last night’s debate. No, not the Biden/Palin match-up, the one on FNC 30 minutes earlier. It was O’Reilly vs. Rep. Barney Frank about the financial crisis, and it was…heated.

O’Reilly calls him a “coward.” Frank says O’Reilly is “too dumb to understand.”

Alright, enough talk. Just click continued to watch the whole thing…
