Wow. Didn't take long, did it?

Obama hasn't taken office yet and Bill O'Reilly has already thrown down the "he's going to kill us all" gauntlet.

Since he's been back from holiday vacation, Bill's been working overtime basically covering two subjects. Al Franken's "stealing the Minnesota Senate seat." Bill couldn't help but go there. Other than Franken murdering Coleman, the theft card was about the only one in the deck he could wrap his embittered fair and balanced fingers around.

The other one took a wee bit of cajoling. Like about two days worth. The president-elect doesn't want the U.S. to torture or send prisoners to other countries where they will be tortured. That, combined with the selection of former Clinton Chief of Staff, Leon Panetta, to head the CIA set up the O'Reilly declaration this week that our new president is a sociopath.

Speaking of Obama and his administration, O'Reilly stated, "We don't care if people die." He may try to wrangle out of it (see: I never said that there was something that the 15 year-old kidnapping victim enjoyed about his years of sexual abuse.). But backed by any number of F&B contributors like Karl Rove, Dick Morris, et al, Bill made it clear that Barack Obama had a reckless disregard for safety of self or others and a lack of and remorse of anyone, including Americans, being killed by terrorists. That, Mr. Cavett, is a sociopath.

Why hadn't Bill warned us prior to the election that we were electing a president with a severe anti-social disorder? How many kitties did Obama drown? How many houses did he burn down? Does the White House have a good fire-detection system?

Bill then put on his Kreskin hat -- you know, the one he wore when he predicted that Franken had no chance of winning -- and told the Folks that in no uncertain terms that if we are attacked, the Obama administration is "Over!" He said it a number of times, I guess so making sure to lay the groundwork that if the Folks weren't already scared out of their bloomers with the fact that their president doesn't care if they die, at least they would be ready to impeach him if we are attacked. You know, like Bill declared the Bush administration "Over!" when he ignored the warning in an intelligence briefing on Aug. 6, 2001, that terrorists had plans for plane-jackings as well as bin Laden's intent to attack the U.S..

Seriously, Folks. Bill O'Reilly is spreading the news to the most watched cable talk show that Barack Obama has a psychopathic personality disorder. If it's true, thank God Bill got to us before Barack is able to get his finger close to the button. If it's not true, then perhaps Bill needs to be stuffed down with Michael Savage in the "autistic kids are just brats" bottom of the broadcast barrel where legitimacy never finds itself.

Can't wait for Obama's next interview on the Factor.
