O'Reilly: oh really?

Quotable phrase: "…several light bulbs short of a marquee..."
Countdown on MSNBC-TV, Nov. 15, 2005
Usage: Keith Olbermann describing
Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly’s reputation after 30 years in the news business; said in discussion with Chris Daly, supervisor of San Fransisco (California) Board of Supervisors, about O’Reilly’s offending remarks in which he welcomed Al Qaeda to attack San Francisco after voters in the city placed an initiative on their ballot to do away with military recruiting on campuses.
Comment: Great recast of clichés like “one brick short of a full load” or “one card short of a full deck”.
