If you missed Sean Hannity’s special” Friday night, you probably had a better night’s sleep not having to worry about how many of the neocons Hannity slobbered over as “the best” minds on military and national security issues might actually have positions of power if Mitt Romney wins the election. As always with Hannity, the real point of the special was not to enlighten but to inflame and enrage his audience against President Obama. And for two of Hannity’s pet causes, torture and war against Iran.
I’d been struggling over how to sum up this hour-long fright-fest but before I had a chance to put pen to paper fingers to computer keys, Karoli, over at Crooks and Liars, did a fabulous job that can’t be improved upon. Plus, she caught something I missed during my watch: birther General Thomas McInerney saying, “The Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House.”
Here are some more of her insights:
I realize these folks only understand “kill, maim, and destroy” as a solution, but they are shouting into a void, unless one is a Romney supporter. Romney definitely agrees with their fearmongering ways, but by a clear and concrete margin, Americans do not. Roger Ailes and Sean Hannity can keep flogging the fear and hoping they get some ears to hear, but what I know is that this country is tired of war, tired of losing our best and brightest to death by IED, and tired of going broke doing it. When only 17% of the country supports military action with Iran, no amount of Hannity and Associated Neocon Bloviation is going to move that needle.
If ever there was a case to be made that Rupert Murdoch and Associates are not competent to run a news network, Sean Hannity and his Gang of Neocons should be the closing argument. Disgusting.
The entire piece is well worth a read. Video below via C&L.
Well, in a perfectly sane country that may be true. Unfortunately, our once-fine nation has lost it’s fucking tea-bagging mind. If Obama loses in November, Iran will just be the start of gleeful hostilities.
At some point normal America must realize that its been listening to a bunch of emotionally retarded children-in-adult-bodies at Fox and in the Repub party and turn away from the dangerous policies of self-destruction this group wants to bring home.
Did no one tell these people that the USA is ‘broke’ and can’t afford their fancy wars any more?
