It has now been four years and two months since Sean Hannity offered to be waterboarded (or "dunked" as he sometimes calls it) to prove that it is not torture. Yet he has not fulfilled his promise. After such a long time, I do not expect him to. But I feel this is an important issue to keep alive - not to ridicule Hannity (although it's tempting) - but to point out that his failure to follow through on his promise is an implicit acknowledgment that it is, indeed torture.
Below is a video (from our friends at Crooks and Liars) showing Hannity's promise to undergo waterboarding - plus Keith Olbermann's offer to add $1,000 to charity for every second Hannity tolerates the process - on April 22, 2009.
He’s a coward. The blacksheep of the family. A disgrace to his father’s and grandfather’s name. A embarrassment to his children and colleagues. An insult to Irish-Americans. A blackeye to the Roman Catholic church.
The only reason renown people associate with this useless old bog is for free publicity on his radio and television shows. Take away his shows and money, his so-called friends would disappear in a heartbeat, and he knows this for a fact.
The Stop Hannity Express says Hannocchio is a complicated man with serious self-esteem issues. He fears aging, losing his broadcasting career, ratings, money, and his reputation. He really fears losing everything. Hannocchio would waterboard himself if it meant saving his wealth and image.
Coming down the pipe:
A shocker! A real shocker
