Bill O'Falafel puts his foot in it again

Bill O'Reilly, July 1, 2004

"... So no more brie for me. No more Evian, Air France, Provence and no more escargot, which I don't like anyway. As a free American, I am using my economic choice to send the French government a message. I am boycotting French goods and services and hope you will do the same."

Centers for Disease Control, October 12, 2004:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and [French pharmaceutical provider] Aventis Pasteur announced today the first phase of the plan to allocate influenza vaccine in response to the recently announced loss of half of the nation's expected flu vaccine supply for the 2004-2005 season. The plan, announced by CDC Director Dr. Julie Gerberding and Aventis Pasteur US President Damian Braga, calls for CDC to work closely with Aventis to distribute in phases 22.4 million doses of unshipped vaccine to identified areas of need throughout the country.

Whoops, that's gotta be awkward. Maybe we can just call it "freedom vaccine".
