LOL!- Ed Asner Offers To ‘PISS ON’ Fox News Producer To Demonstrate Trickle-Down Economics
Emmy Award-winning The Mary Tyler Show actor Ed Asner recently asked a Fox News producer if he could “piss on” him after he was confronted about a California Federation of Teachers video that showed cartoon rich people urinating on poor people.
Fox News host Sean Hannity and other conservative pundits first began attacking Asner on Tuesday after the animated ad that he narrated appeared on the federation’s website to explain how rich people used tax evasion, tax loopholes and tax cuts to become even richer.
On Wednesday, Hannity announced that he had sent an ambush producer out to confront the “left-wing Hollywood actor” outside his job at a New York City theater over the “disgusting hit piece.”
“I don’t remember a thing I said on it or a word I said on it,” Asner told the producer. “But I agreed to do it for California teachers. I approve this message.”
“There’s a part of it where talking about things trickling down and they have like rich people peeing on poor people,” the producer explained.
“How disgusting,” the actor snarked. “It should be reversed.”
“So you don’t remember that?” the producer pressed.
“Do you have any money?” Asner later asked.
“Ah, yeah,” the producer replied.
“Can I piss on you?” the actor quipped.
Hannity sarcastically concluded that Asner’s comments were “pretty classy.”
“I guess it’s true there’s really no business like show business,” he added.

4. I marched in a parade with him once
We had an anti-Iraq War protest unit in the Studio City Holiday Parade one year, and Asner and his grandson rode in a convertible with our protest. Just before the parade, DUer kerrygoddess introduced us and Asner posed for a pic with me. One of these days I probably should find that old disposable camera and get it developed...

6. S, slant-head Hannity had to send in a hit-crew
to do his dirty work. In the studio, he has protection when he wants to pretend to have courage. On the street, he'd actually have to be a man.

13. Both he and O'Reilly send out their little lackey producers in an effort
to nail down the perfect "ambush interview".
I loved it years back when Keith actually did a demonstration of how he would handle just such an interview attempt from that little stooge "Jesse" that works for O'Reilly - he would just immediately start mentioning Andrea Mackris, falafels, and loofahs, and thus render the footage completely unusable for the show!

14. That's What I Thought Too
If it's so disgusting, why didn't Sean ambush Asner himself. Too afraid he'd expose the fact that he's ambushing someone who is a far bigger big-shot then little Sean.
