The Meeting of the Minds

Editor & Publisher provides the transcript of the intellectual discussion that took place earlier this week between Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter. Presented without further comment, because, just…there’s really nothing more to add:

O’Reilly: Bernie Goldberg has some advice for you. Should I not go there?

Coulter: Uh, my general policy is to take advice from people who sell MORE books than I do, not fewer books than I do.

O’Reilly: Oh. You take advice from me then.

Coulter: No! No! I said more books.

O’Reilly: Yeah, I sell more books than you do.

Coulter: No you don’t.

O’Reilly: Yes I do.

Coulter: No you don’t.

O’Reilly: But we don’t want to get in an argument about that.
