MSNBC’s Shuster: Bill O’Reilly 'Hates Gay and Lesbians' or Has Hit 'Cuckooland'

As if showing his true colors and how he really felt about Miss California, Carrie Prejean being allowed to keep her crown on air and on Twitter multiple times weren't enough, MSNBC's David Shuster wanted to go for the hat-trick by going after Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly.

Shuster, filling in for anchor Chris Matthews on the MSNBC's May 12 broadcast of "Hardball" took aim at "The O'Reilly Factor" host for his opposition of same-sex marriage.

"Next stop, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly - who was at it again last night gripping his usual five-alarm bell over gay marriage," Shuster said.

Shuster, off a story from his usual array of left-wing storefronts he uses as sources, played a clip from the May 11 "The O'Reilly Factor," which O'Reilly warned of the slippery slope that might be created if same-sex marriage were legalized. O'Reilly asked his guest Margaret Hoover if that could lead to marrying a turtle if one wanted to.

Shuster's conclusion from O'Reilly's questions - he hates gay and lesbians or his mental health is in question.

"Marry a turtle? That argument is so ridiculous, so illogical and so stupid one can only presume Bill O'Reilly really hates gay and lesbians and doesn't want to talk about it or his cognitive reasoning skills have hit cuckooland, if you know what I mean."
