Donnybrook with Donahue

From what I caught last night, it sure looked like that old snowy-haired liberal daytime yakker Phil Donahue cleaned Bill O'Reilly's clock during their heated Fox News Channel faceoff this week over war mom Cindy Sheehan and the mess in Iraq. (The transcript speaks for itself.)

O'Reilly, as befits a classic bully of the microphone, usually knows when he's got a guest too formidable to mess with and backs off a bit. That doesn't happen often, but he was understandably wary during a show with Michael Moore during last year's Democratic National Convention.

But proving he innately understands how to dominate the airwaves, Donahue pretty much pounded O'Reilly into submission, compounding his assault by repeatedly referring to the host as "Billy." By the end of segment, Billy looked like he had inhaled about a half dozen lemons.

If you need a refresher course on Jeremy Glick's infamous encounter with O'Reilly, read this.
