Bill O'Reilly to Kucinich: 'I'm Your Best Friend'

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) are the latest odd couple. The conservative pundit and former anti-war presidential candidiate are blaming high gas prices partly on price gouging.

Kucinich appeared on O'Reilly's show Wednesday to talk about his call for the impeachment of President Bush and for an investigation into oil companies' price manipulation. While O'Reilly disagreed with Kucinich over an impeachment, the pundit said he backs the congressman's efforts to look into price gouging.

"Bill O'Reilly and Kucinich, together at last," Kucinich said.

KUCINICH: Well, you know what [oil companies are] doing? They're actually standing back while all the speculation is going. It has nothing to do with supply and demand.

O'REILLY: Absolutely.

KUCINICH: Driving the price of oil.

O'REILLY: Get them. Look.

KUCINICH: And.

O'REILLY: ... Congressman..

KUCINICH: You know what?

O'REILLY: ... I'm your best friend on that issue.

KUCINICH: (inaudible) something.

KUCINICH: No.

O'REILLY: It's ridiculous.
