O'Reilly: If Clinton elected "the first thing [Osama] bin Laden and his killers are gonna do is say, would say 'Oh yeah, this is good,' "

On the April 3 edition of Bill O'Reilly's Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly, Bill O'Reilly had another go at potential Presidential candidate Senator Hilary Clinton (D-NY). He says that if Clinton was to be elected President, "the first thing bin Laden and his killers are gonna do is say, 'Oh yeah, this is good. We like this.'" He also said that "they'll test her, they'll test her. And then she's put in a very difficult position that she may have to overreact to prove herself, you see? Very complicated." He also said, "What she will have is, "OK, we have a weak person."

This to me looks like sexism. O'Reilly's just saying that she's "weak" because she's a woman. She's taken a very tough stance on the war. But O'Reilly doesn't care. He made further comments, proving that this is gender-based: "If you got a Giuliani or a McCain, these are tough guys, these are street fighters. Bin Laden and the crew, they're gonna know right away these guys mean business. Her they're gonna test."

Just ridiculous. Note how he says "these guys mean business", but "her they're gonna test." To me, he's clearly implying that Ms. Clinton would be unable to be a successful President because she's a woman. That's unacceptable.
