The Bad Guy

Rocky Anderson lives up to his name (now with VIDEO).

I do not know much about Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, but I have to give the man some respect at this moment. You see, he was just on “the O’Reilly Factor” and he more than held his own against Bill.

Remember all those tips I gave about how to deal with Hannity? Well Rocky proved that I was (somewhat) right…And that those same strategies work against O’Reilly. The man does not wait his turn, he attacks. It is a shame that he does not speak in depth about his arguments, but he knows there is no time for that on O’Reilly. All he has time for is punching and blocking and scaring Bill into going to commercial.

What he did right:

-Shut Bill down for name calling (for the record O’Reilly called Anderson a “nut,” “kook” and “foolish”).

-Talked over Bill whenever interrupted.

-Would not take the bait when Bill mentioned Anderson’s involvement in Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

-Treated Bill like a child while at the same time remaining polite (a difficult task, to be sure).

-Stood his ground at all times.

What he did wrong:


Here’s a video of the segment. I would like to thank OneGoodMove for posting it first (well, that’s where I got it from anyway):

And here is another clip from two weeks ago about the man:

  1. You think Rocky the Flying Squirrel held his own against O’Reilly? Rocky looked more foolish than ever!
    The proof of that was in Bill’s final question. Rocky has been very vocal against the war. And yet he admitted that he would go to war over Iran getting nuclear weapons. In 2001, everyone on both sides of the aisle thought Iraq did. Rocky was caught in his own trap.
    I am a resident of Utah, but not Salt Lake City proper.
    I’m embarrassed that Rocky takes it upon himself to speak for the entire state – he doesn’t.

  2. Rocky Nailed O’Reilly!!

    Only Rocky would have the good common sense to go to war with absolute truth and not mis-directed lies by the Dictator Bush! So Would anyone go to war w/ Iran ..maybe we would if we had concrete proof ..but what you don’t know and Rocky implied was that would be after lengthy negotiations!!!

  3. I would like to ask everyone to please refrain from name calling each other in the comments. Any more outbursts like the one above and I will delete your messages…Even if I do agree with you (so to answer your question, yes I did edit your comment).

    I start the fights around here, no one else.
