Stop Competing With Me!

Oh, this is too funny. O'Reilly shows concern for MSNBC:

Dear Chairman Wright:

We, the undersigned, are becoming increasingly concerned about the well-being of MSNBC and, in particular, note the continuing ratings failure of the program currently airing weeknights on that network at 8:00 PM EST.

It is now apparent to everyone that a grave injustice has been done to the previous host for that time slot, Phil Donahue, whose ratings, at the time of his show's cancellation three years ago, were demonstrably stronger than those of the current host.

Therefore, in an effort to rescue MSNBC from the ratings basement and to restore the honor and dignity of Mr. Donahue, who was ignobly removed as host three years ago, we ask that you immediately bring Phil Donahue's show back at 8:00 PM EST before any more damage is done.

I guess Mr. Olbermann has been getting under Mr. Loofah's skin. Shouldn't O'Reilly be doing his own show at 8:00? Is he TiVo-ing the competition?

This reminds me of any time a Republican shows his "concern" for the Democrats by explaining very patiently what they should be doing to return to political prominence. Somehow I don't think they have the best interests of their opponents at heart.
