Bill O'Reilly isn't gloating about the passage of an "about certain" tax cut compromise. He's just wondering about the fate of the left after it's all said and done: "With yet another crushing defeat, the question is, can George Soros, Ariana Huffington, The New York Times, and MSNBC even survive much longer as credible enterprises?" he pointedly asks.
