Just when you thought he couldn't sink any lower...

...Bill O'Reilly goes ahead and attacks a teenage kidnap victim.

Here's Loofahman talking about Shawn Hornbeck, who was kidnapped four years ago from his Missouri hometown and rescued last Friday. It is worth noting that Hornbeck's parents believe that their son was sexually abused by his kidnapper.

And the question is, why didn't he escape when he could have? There are all kinds of theories about that....

All right, you know, the Stockholm syndrome thing, I don't buy it. I've never bought it. I didn't think it happened in the Patty Hearst case. I don't think it happened here.

If you're 11 years old or 12 years old, 13, and you have a strong bond with your family, OK, even if the guy threatens you, this and that, you're riding your bike around, you got friends. The kid didn't go to school. There's all kinds of stuff. If you can get away, you get away. All right? If you're 11....

The parents of Polly Klaas might beg to differ with the Falafel Fool. But let's continue:

The situation here for this kid looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his old parents. He didn't have to go to school. He could run around and do whatever he wanted....

With a mentally ill child predator who's been linked in the disappearance of another boy who was never found? Uh-uh. No way.

And I think when it all comes down, what's going to happen is, there was an element here that this kid liked about his circumstances.

Ugh. Either O'Reilly is seriously mentally ill--as in Michael Savage mentally ill--or he's made it his life's goal to make Keith Olbermann's job easier.

Or maybe both.

Is there any reason why this scumbag is taken seriously anymore?
