Bachmann's implication that liberals didn't care about terrorists beheading Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was too much for even O'Reilly. (It's unclear whether the "They don't think twice about that" line was meant refer to liberals not caring about it, or to the terrorists who don't think twice about doing it.)

"I don't know that that's fair though, Congressman (sic)," O'Reilly replied. "I think liberal people are very, very angered that Daniel Pearl and other Americans have been murdered."

"Oh, of course. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to suggest that," Bachmann replied. "But they're trying to find some sort of a defense here, because it seems that America is always wrong. America is always the bad guy in their scenario."
