Haunted By Falafel

Poor Bill O'Reilly can't even say mildly creepy things to his guests without the specter of a loofah rising up in our polluted minds and making them seem really uncomfortably creepy. Last night when he introduced Ann Coulter, he noted what he thought was a new outfit featured on the cover of Coulter's latest maniacal screed, now out in paperback, pictured above:
O'REILLY: Joining us now to talk about this and other news items, Ann Coulter, the author of a book "How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)," now out in paperback.

Did you change the color? I thought you were in black leather last time. That's blue leather here. Is that a different color?

ANN COULTER: Yes, I like...

O'REILLY: You have leather in every shape and every color. [Awkward pause.] OK. Just finished reading your column on Miers. You don't like her. Why?
