Common Tropes used in his work

  • Cultural Posturing: Crops up regularly when Bill delves into topics that reach beyond America's borders. A good example is his analysis of football (the non-American kind), during which he essentially concludes that it's inferior to American Football because it's a game for poor people and "petty tyrannies", and because he (and America) could care less about it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As a political commentator this is kind of his job.
  • Eagleland: He likes to emphasise just how Type 1 the US is (at least if it weren't for those damn liberals!), particularly compared to other countries. See also Cultural Posturing.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Andrew Klavan. It has gotten to the point of becoming a running gag to open every episode with Bill and Andrew insulting each other while laughing about it. When asked questions about Klavan in other venues he will often respond with “Why that no good lousy good for nothing…”

How well does it match the trope?
