Hannity, Bully Boy Clown for FNC

Reported by Deborah - March 1, 2005

Avi Cover appeared on H&C tonight to discuss a recent lawsuit against Donald Rumsfeld for serious allegations of abuse and torture of prisoners. After a rational and informative discussion between Cover and Colmes, Hannity's response was certainly no surprise but that didn't make it less nauseating or embarrassing to watch.

Some of the charges in this lawsuit brought against Rumseld by Human Rights First and ACLU were beatings; urinating on detainees; electric shocks; and death threats. The detainees in the lawsuit were never charged with any crime. Colmes and Avi Cover discussed the danger that this behavior brings to our own soldiers who face similar treatment if the Geneva rules are not followed.They also explored the idea that torture produces poor intelligence and mentioned John McCain's support of maintaining the Geneva Convention rules. The discussion between Cover and Colmes was sane, reasonable and supportive of the true values expressed by most Americans.

Hannity then entered like a wailing man child claiming that it never happened. Then he lapsed into a vile falsetto voice. "Please , Mr Terrorist, please tell me where my sister is. Please sir, please be nice." Then Hannity proclaimed, "Evil exists."

comment: Hannity has used this ridiculous voice before but tonight it was so inappropriate that he looked like a complete loser and fool. These horrific behaviors in military prisons are happening and can no longer be swept away by the bully tactics of Hannity and his team. Tonight Hannity looked totally unhinged. Looks like those street corner antics just aren't enough anymore.
