BillO mocks Helen Thomas, calls her "old lady", "wicked witch of the east"

During the last US election we were told that it was ageist to bring up the fact that electing McCain would actually be electing the oldest president in the history of the US.

And, for the most part, the subject was left alone.

But, now that the election is over, watch the way Billo attacks Helen Thomas for being old.

O'Reilly: The White House press corps looked intimidated to me... Except for that, what's her name? The old lady, Helen Thomas. [squawking sound]

Colmes: Is that your Helen Thomas impression?

O'Reilly: Yea! [squawking sound]

Colmes: I didn't know you did impersonations.

O'Reilly: It's like the wicked witch of the east! If I were Obama, I would've poured water on her, and she would dissolve!

Colmes: It's not nice to make fun of an old woman, Bill.

O'Reilly: It doesn't matter.

Billo doesn't seem to get it. Helen Thomas is a legend. To attack her for her age should be beneath even this crackpot.
