“Great American” Hannity Again Delighted That Limbaugh's Operation Chaos Disrupted Primary Process

Reported by Ellen - May 21, 2008 -

Once again, FOX News, the network that Roger Ailes claims “likes America,” aired its approval of Rush Limbaugh's malicious interference with that most sacred of democratic institutions, the voting process. With video.

As I have previously reported, self-styled “Great American” Sean Hannity was full of bullyboy glee that Limbaugh's Operation Chaos (Limbaugh's plan to prolong the primary process and bloody Obama by urging Republicans to cross over and vote for Clinton) may have adversely affected the primary process in Indiana. On last night's (5/20/08) Hannity & Colmes, Hannity repeated his approval and made it clear that he admired such undemocratic mischief.

Last night, Hannity told a panel of pundits discussing the results of the Kentucky primary, “I am a big supporter of Rush's Operation Chaos, which I thought was brilliant radio and very entertaining, and I think it's actually played an impact on some of these races.”

As chrish reported, when DailyKos' Markos Moulitsas suggested Democrats cross over and and vote for Mitt Romney in Michigan (back in January) FOXNews.com called it "a classic dirty trick" and a "Machiavellian political ploy." But coming from Limbaugh, FOX News presented it as brilliant, entertaining and praiseworthy.
