Bill O'Reilly is sparring with Jon Stewart again.
On Monday, the "O'Reilly Factor" host stood by his election-night comments that President Obama's win reflected an end to "traditional America." He was responding to digs by Stewart on "The Daily Show."
Stewart mocked O'Reilly for "lamenting" that "traditional Americans" did not vote for Obama and deducing that "traditional America as we know it is gone." Stewart suggested O'Reilly longed for an America populated by the cast of "Leave it to Beaver."
"Bill O'Reilly, what are you talking about?" Stewart asked last week.
"Well, here's what I'm talking about Mr. Obtuse," O'Reilly said. "[Voters] wanted equality for gays in the marriage arena. They want unfettered abortion with no parental notification for minors. They want a one world foreign policy that gives other nations equal status to America. Here's a bulletin to those pinheads at Comedy Central: 'Those are not traditional positions.' Clear about this?"
O'Reilly and Stewart have a history of affable debate. Last month, the two faced off in what was called "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium."
Is it already time for another climate-controlled rumble?
