Hannity Whines About Being Snubbed By Joy Behar
Reported by Ellen - May 5, 2009 -
Sean Hannity spent a lot of time during last night's show whining about liberal Joy Behar, of The View, snubbing him and calling him “dangerous.” In his innocent voice, Hannity claimed he merely has policy differences with President Obama and holds nothing against him personally. But in a later segment, Hannity ranted that Obama is a “radical activist” who won't select a qualified Supreme Court justice who will follow the rule of law and the Constitution. Earth to Hannity: Statements like that are a good example of why Behar feels that way about you. With video.
Early in the show, near the end of his interview with The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Hannity said, “I try to reach out to Joy (Behar)... I don't understand why Joy's calling me dangerous, attacking me all the time. I've always liked Joy. She's funny.”
Hasselbeck either disingenuously or cluelessly said she thought it was because Hannity's conservative. “You can't be conservative right now.” (Hasselbeck, whom I've always felt is living proof that you don't need to be intelligent to succeed on television, must have forgotten that Behar puts up with her every working day. So, gee whiz, Elisabeth, do you think just being conservative might not be the problem?)
Hannity continuing, said with his sincere voice, “But to call me dangerous because I don't like Barack Obama's policies? I have nothing against the Obamas personally.”
Maybe not personally but Hannity's hate-mongering toward Obama remains as inflamed as ever. During the Great American Panel, guest and Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle said that while she'd like to see Obama nominate a woman and/or Latina for the Supreme Court, the most important thing is that he selects someone “who's qualified and who's actually going to follow the rule of law and the Constitution.”
“The chances of that are zero,” “Great American” Hannity said. When challenged by Democratic panelist Alicia Menendez, he “explained,” “Because Barack Obama is a radical activist. His whole life has been about radicalism. His whole agenda in the first hundred-plus days has been a radical left agenda. A socialist economy and a weakening of our national defenses."
Memo to Hannity: That's why Behar thinks you're dangerous. And she's not the only one who thinks so.
