A caller tried to suggest that black racism directed at white people had risen over the last four decades. Hannity made a grand show of deflecting this caller's suggestions. He went on to say that racists are ignorant.
That sounds good, like Hannity actually used his position of influence for the good of mankind.
Well half-an-hour later Sean gave us a hint of the smear campaign he and his conservative co-hit men can be expected to use should Barrack Obama decide to run for president in '08.
He played a clip of Obama's last name severely edited so that it sounded like a skipping record, except an "s" sound was added in a strateg places.
To describe it linguistically, I will need your full creative participation: "Oba, ama, bama, o, os, ama, sama, o, sama, bama."
Yeah, that's as in Bin Laden. Hannity would denounce racism in one breath and then exploit the similarities in sounds between Obama's foreign-sounding name (he's ethnic) and Osama's, who is the world's most reviled terrorist and expect to get a free pass?
It's pure slander. To associate one of the most decent politicians in Washington with the world's most hated murderer....Hannity smiles the whole time. He knows damn well what he's doing. He knows how his audience thinks. He knows the dark racist corners of their minds.
F-er hates America. He was born in to the wrong country. Hates freedom of speech, hates the government (the best one in the world mind you, and the only one that's gonna keep your butt from the corporate wolves.) Hates freedom of religion. There are some countries in the Middle East that Hannity might want to check out.
In other news, Hannity is sounding like the broken record that is the Republican Party. The "Party" is in utter meltdown. No fresh ideas, no fresh talking points, no good news.
Hannity was out there today throwing around the "weak on terror" card. He's out there telling everyone that Iraqis are gonna come get us. Are we talking about the same poor Iraqis that don't have running water? What are they going to do? Paddle over on a piece of drift wood?
"How are other nations going to cooperate with us in the future if we just pull out because it's gotten politically dicey?" Hannity asked. If we just pulled out when it started getting politically dicey we would have left a long time ago. To stay there until doomsday might appease Hannity, but the guy's got no vision.
I mean what is Hannity seeing that we're not? What looks so damn rosy about staying in Iraq? He's clinging to his position beyond any allowance for rationality. Nobody's buying this boogeyman argument anymore. It just adds cause to doubt the sanity of these right wing hacks.
They're loosing it. And it's so fun to watch because we knew it all along.
