Chris Dodd to Appear on O'Reilly Tonight


So I get my usual e-mail from the Dodd campaign (or is that non-campaign?):

Dear Pam,

This Saturday, Senator Dodd will join other Democratic primary candidates at the Yearly Kos Presidential Forum -- an event being broadcast on CNN and DTV. [DTV stands for Dodd TV -- ed.]

A Presidential forum put together wholly by grassroots activists; you would think that is an encouraging sign for our Party, and our democracy.

It is, of course, unless you work at Fox News and your name is Bill O'Reilly.

O'Reilly has gone on a tirade against the netroots for the past two weeks, essentially declaring war on Yearly Kos, its sponsors, and participants ... and that includes Senator Dodd.

He tried to get our campaign to distance itself from the event -- we pushed back. I don't think he expected that.

He invited us on the show -- we accepted. I don't think he expected that either.

Will you stand with Senator Dodd as he faces Bill O'Reilly tonight on "The O'Reilly Factor" at 8 P.M. Eastern?

Bill O'Reilly's weapon of choice in this battle is to pick a handful of the millions of comments posted on DailyKos and attempt to pass them off as representative of the community.

This is not a new trick for him, and we called him out on it.

Will you stand with Senator Dodd tonight as he goes face to face with Bill O'Reilly?

Bill O'Reilly is not used to people standing up to him and his unfair attacks.

You won't want to miss this,

Internet Director, Chris Dodd for President

First of all, I don't think Bill O'Reilly is too worried about getting smacked down by Chris Dodd. And as for the assertion that he's "not used to people standing up to him and his unfair attacks," that in and of itself is a joke. If you've ever watched his show, you know he thrives on controversy and opposition. I'm sure he's going to enjoy having Dodd on his program to argue with.

Now, I've seen some of Bill O'Reilly's taking down of Daily Kos, and while I agree with him that the site spews quite a bit of hateful rhetoric, I think he's going about it the wrong way, as Michelle Malkin has said on some of her guest appearances.

Unfortunately, when I went to watch it this morning from my DVR, it was all bridge news.

I feel horrible about this. I am glad that the loss of life is low, but this is going to hit the Twin Cities economy pretty heavily.

What happened to Dems avoiding FNC?

I was shocked too...I was all set to watch O'Reilly over at my mother's house, when she told me that regular programming was pre-empted for the bridge coverage. What a terrible thing...

To answer your question, though, Dodd is polling so low (0%-1%) and gets so little time to speak during the debates, that I would say he's desperate for any airtime he can get. We'll see if he's on Thursday night's show.
