Mackris vs. O'Reilly: the opera.

"The piece is a setting of the sexual harassment complaint lodged against Fox News pundit, Bill O’Reilly, by staff producer, Andrea Mackris, in October 2004 and recorded at its world premiere in January 2007. It includes all memorable moments from the original complaint and more – paranoid rants, clumsy sexual innuendo, and the famous falafel fantasy. Composer Igor Keller has produced this concert-length work in the form of a baroque oratorio, in the style of an updated Handel’s Messiah, for 28-piece chamber orchestra, 26-voice chorus and three soloists. It’s an oratorio for the 21st century!"

Now the douchebaggery of one William James "Bill" O'Reilly, Jr., tv host and gentle caresser of falafel, will be available in high culture format for all future mankind.

Gasbaggery for a gasbag.

So this looks like an attempt to elevate 'trash' to a 'higher level.'

Kinda like Jerry Springer: The Opera [previously].

I had almost forgotten what a rotten cunt that O'Reilly is. So thanks for that.
