Maybe MoveOn And Hillary Clinton Should Have Just Joked About Beating Up Petraeus

Reported by Ellen - September 22, 2007 -

In Sean Hannity's world, it's an outrage to question a general's veracity but joking about beating people up or shooting them is amusing.

Hannity has been so full of melodramatic Hanctimony over the MoveOn ad asking if General Petraeus would "betray us" by not telling the truth, so much so that the "debate" has gone on ad nauseum on Hannity & Colmes as well as on FOX News.

But joking about beating people up and murdering them? No problem! Besides the warm welcome Ann "Let's poison Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens" Coulter regularly receives on Hannity & Colmes, Hannity laughed ostentatiously at Ted Nugent's "joke" that Barack Obama should "suck my machine gun."

Now, thanks to Google Alerts, I learned that Hannity tells jokes about beating up Alan Colmes.

According to today's Charlotte Observer:

Name-dropping, even without names

The number of times the name of former President Ronald Reagan was invoked by conservative pundit Sean Hannity or another speaker at an appearance this week in Charlotte: 13.

The number of times, during his talk, that Hannity joked about beating up his liberal "Hannity & Colmes" co-host, Alan Colmes: 3.

We didn't count how many times Hannity referenced Hillary Clinton. It was a lot, 10 or so, including once in which the New York senator and former first lady didn't even need to be named. Hannity said he never wanted to turn on the radio and find out "that she has been elected president.
