Line of the Night goes to Letterman without a doubt.
Letterman: I wanna tell ya, and this book is a crazy best seller how many weeks has it been on the best sellers list?
O’Reilly: 6 months on the best seller list
Letterman: See here’s what breaks my heart about this because in my mind I think of you as a goon. But when you look at this picture look at how sweet (Letterman is pointing to picture of Bill as a child on the cover of his book) and adorable that kids is and it breaks my heart because I have a sweet and adorable kid like that at home and I think of great what if he too becomes a goon, ya know
O’Reilly: Do you want me to respond to any of this?
This of course was the first of many wonderfully barbed comments sent O’Reilly’s way. I do believe that Dave earned a canned ham for this one.
