I hate to admit it but I enjoy occasionally watching Bill O' Reilly because, despite his impeccable Ivy League credentials, he comes off as a pompous blow-hard with a wink in his eye. It's like he knows he's playing a blow-hard and he wants us to know it's all just a Fox News act. But he also has an admittedly thin ego. One thing I get a kick out of is that O' Reilly at 6' 4" just hates to stand or be near celebrities or everyday people taller than he. This pretty much eliminates most all of the NBA appearing on The O' Reilly Factor or most NFL lineman or other athletes that make the 58 year-old look small and decrepit. Which brings us to Marvin Nicholson, 6' 8" aide to Democrat Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Though accounts vary it appears that O' Reilly tried to push through a greeting line by telling all those near him who he was (and why they should care) and attempted to plant a Republican Fox News camera in a very optimal photographic position. To his amazement, the overwhelmingly Democrat crowd started protesting his presence and began calling out "felafel" much to O' Reilly's embarrassment. In seconds he was also eye-to-chin with Mr. Nicholson, an aide to Mr. Obama's campaign. As things are ought to do in situations like that, accounts vary as to what exactly happened. Bill O' called in to Fox News Brian Wilson (at 6' 5" also taller than Bill) to report that he had single-handedly staved-off an attack by a left-wing fringe lunatic on News Corp/Fox News cameras and personnel. However, a photograph by the New York Times clearly shows O' Reilly making out like the late Ohio State coach Woody Hayes, his face contorted, and the much taller and stronger Nicholson smiling and looking bemused. Watch out Bill; Woody Hayes met his demise trying to punch and strip a football out of the hands of a younger and stronger man who just intercepted a pass from his quarterback, Art Schlicter. When asked how it felt, the opposing player said he was unaware that Woody was punching him; the OSU coach was too old and small to pay attention to in the heat of battle. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/06/us/politics/06bill.html P.S. I am also taller than Bill O' Reilly.
