Sean Hannity hits a new low...

I mean, totally discredited "Swiftboater" John O'Neill?

Sean Hannity hosted Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (SBVT) founder John O'Neill and praised his 2004 ad campaign attacking Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign. But the ad campaign praised by Hannity as "powerful" and "effective" was based on lies and distortions of Kerry's war record.

5. They were just patriots

My favorite fairy tale about the "Swiftboaters" is that they were fellow vets who contributed to the cause for honor and country. It was a grassroots organization.


Mmmm not so much.

8. Reminds me of a funny Hannity story...

His show is a safe house for any racist du jour to use as a base to explain themselves. From Imus to the "macaca" guy, they've all been on his show asap after the offense.

I was watching the week Dog The Bounty Hunter was caught on tape referring to his Son's black girlfriend in predicable terms. He either gave Colmes the night off or sent him out for coffee as he helped Dog do damage control.

Chapman, decked out in all his regalia and dangling jewelry, was very contrite and set out to prove there wasn't a prejudiced bone in his body when Hannity asked him what he'd like to tell the American people.

I imagine he had Hannity's help in writing the story that he visited Thomas Jefferson's home earlier that day, and he saw the cemetery where all the slaves were buried. He said he wanted to be buried up there at the top of the hill at that very cemetery, and when school children came on field trips they'd ask the teacher: "Why is Dog The Bounty Hunter buried up there?"

At this point I'm picturing Chapman's not so modest memorial with a statue of himself and a couple German Shepherds on leashes looking over the countless plots of the blacks who died in servitude, and I began to wonder where he was going with this. He then continued with a super serious face that the teacher would say "Because Dog did a bad thing", as Hannity sat there solemnly nodding his head at the prepared statement.

By now I was laughing out loud that that ignorant jackass was pretty much saying that he considered being eternally buried among black people was the most severe punishment he could think of for a stupid (non)racist like himself, and he thought all should be forgiven.

Sean Hannity is a blight on civil society, and I'm not for censorship, but if I could pick one person....
