Another Night Of Punishment For Alabama Teacher On Hannity & Colmes
Reported by Deborah - April 13, 2006
Last night on H&C, a teacher from Alabama, Steve White got the FOX treatment for showing his 8th grade a questionable video. Chrish posted about the segment and it seems that both Hannity & Colmes were calling for him to be fired. White was running for a House seat in AL. and last night his Republican challenger was the guest on H&C denying political motivation. Despite the fact that Democrats asked White to withdraw from the race on 4/12 and he is on leave from his job and under investigation, the lynching continued tonight. 4/13/06
The Chairman of the Alabama GOP, Twinkle Cavanaugh, was on hand to continue the non-political condemnation of White. Cavanaugh began with a non political observation that Democrats are out of touch with reality. Calling it a right/wrong issue and not a political one, Ms. Twinkle Cavanaugh complained that there were 23 profanities in a 3 minute video.
Of course the video was shown with the offensive words blacked out so Cheney was shown with the word "hole" under him but a little to the right of center so viewers needed to visualize the "ass". Hannity bragged that he was in the video referring to himself as "little old me". Viewers didn't get to see if he had "hole" under his face.
Hannity with his commanding tone proclaimed, "This Teacher needs to be fired!" Then he asked Cavanaugh what steps had been taken. Of course, Chairman Cavanaugh, keeping her word about being non political offered some inside dope on the Democratic Chairman revealing that he was the head of the Teacher's Union and a "very powerful man" adding that he doesn't look out for the children.
Colmes didn't seem to have much patience for Twinkle Cavanaugh asking her bluntly in a slightly irritated tone why she was politicizing the issue reminding her that the Democrats had asked White to withdraw. In her most innocent voice, she denied politicizing and complained that the Democrats " took a little time". Colmes, appeared exasperated, that she wasn't going to admit to having political motives . Cavanaugh, like a good Republican, stuck to her talking points which, please don't forget, were not political.
