Bill O'Reilly: If the government can cobble together cheaper insurance, I see that as a plus

The weirdest and most unexpected thing about Glenn Beck is that every time I watch him get interviewed by Bill O'Reilly, Beck seems crazier and O'Reilly seems... well... almost sane. And this video isn't helping! From Jed Lewison at Daily Kos: Does Bill O'Reilly support the public option?
Who knows if O'Reilly was endorsing exchanges, or a public option, or even if he had any clue what he was talking about. At the very least, though, it's a recognition from him that he thinks the basic argument for a public option is compelling.
I'll spew as much venom as the next guy over Bill O'Reilly, even if the next guy is Keith Olbermann. BUT, any day you can get a ray of rationalism through to the Fox News prime time audience is a good day.
