Poor Sean Hannity. Undoubtedly aware of the dismal new polling numbers for Mitt Romney from Fox News, Hannity tried to take out his frustration on Democrat Bernard Whitman last night. But Seanie-Pooh’s bad luck just kept with him. Because after several minutes of bullyboy Hanctimony, Whitman let him have it, no holds barred.
Hannity and his like-minded guest, Kerry Picket, did their best to present Obama as an incompetent and ineffectual president for much of the segment. When he failed to flummox or outmaneuver Whitman, Hannity shouted, at about 4:30 into the video, “You are like a brain-dead, lobotomized, walking talking-point zombie! Stop giving me that garbage!”
Whitman, who seemed perfectly unruffled, replied,
“You know why you’re so upset, Sean? Because Mitt Romney has turned into the American Borat. Every single time he opens his mouth (Hannity kept yelling but again failed to rattle Whitman) …he either insults the Americans - half the country - he insults the Brits or he tells Iran that they should launch a dirty bomb. I mean, this guy is not serious. And he basically has now contributed to your losing the Senate as well as the presidency. It’s sort of shocking. I’d be upset if I were you, too.”
Although Hannity had interrupted and argued with everything else Whitman said, all Hannity said now was, “You gotta stop lighting candles at the picture of Obama every night.”
For keeping his cool and giving Hannity some straight talk he couldn’t deny, Bernard Whitman is our latest Top Dog.
Well, not quite, Bernard: Borat was genuinely funny — rightwingers like Mittens usually aren’t, except when unintentionally so.
Hannity said now was, âYou gotta stop lighting candles at the picture of Obama every night.â
And Seannie Poo, you’ve gotta do something about your Obama Derangement Syndrome . . .
Christ, this guy is boring.
IMO, that introduction by Sean was a masterpiece of unfair and unbalanced rhetoric. Antoinette: is that par for his course or has he been increasingly losing his cool? And thanks for the tips on how to get under his skin.
The Stop Hannity Express encourages all the masses to fight back if insulted by Hannocchio. Some of our suggestions include calling him Hannipie the Tin Man, a nickname he despised during his WGST days in Atlanta. #Hannipiethetinman.
Ask him about his brief appearance on that 2008 documentary film, “Don’t Tell Me What To Think” or his tiny, tiny role in the film, “The Siege.”
Bring up his felon buddies: Hal Turner, Robert Allen Stanford, Bernie Kerik, Ollie North, and others who had brushes with the law like Limbaugh and Lil’ Annie.
Get details of his bad business deal with a couple of developers in Georgia that resulted in a lengthy lawsuit over money owed.
Ask where the money went during the Freedom Concert.
And last, but not least. Ask Hannocchio why he chickened out on waterboarding. If he really supports the troops, he owes it to them to waterboard himself for charity.
That’s how you deal with this Franklin Square street hustler.
NOTE TO HANNITY
Based on your selection of friends, associates and other failed adventures, you are the one who is brain-dead.
