O'Reilly Self Parody Alert

This sounds like something from the Onion, but no, it's true (via TNR, Andrew Sullivan, and MediaMatters):

Discussing his recent dinner with Rev. Al Sharpton at the Harlem restaurant Sylvia's, Bill O'Reilly reported that he "couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship." O'Reilly added: "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.' "
You can almost hear Bill channeling Huckleberry Finn- "it's almost like the restaurant was white inside."
