Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly and Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert appeared on each other's shows last night. According to the AP:
Once inside Colbert's studio decorated for the occasion with a large "Mission Accomplished" banner and a portrait of O'Reilly placed fireside — O'Reilly seemed to be regretting the decision.Colbert's appearance on Fox's "The O'Reilly Factor" was more amusing to watch. At one point, Colbert heaped praise on O'Reilly's boundless energy, managing to host both a radio and TV show each weekday. Then Colbert asked:
"This was a huge mistake, me coming on here," he muttered.
It may have been a greater error allowing Colbert into the Fox News headquarters, located near the "Colbert Report" studios in Manhattan. There, Colbert smuggled a microwave out of the green room, a bounty which he proudly displayed at the conclusion of his show.
"Where do you get your strength, Bill — Jesus Christ or Pat Robertson's protein shake?"
