It has now been more than 4 ½ years since Sean Hannity offered to be waterboarded (or “dunked” as he sometimes calls it) to prove that it’s not torture. So has Hannity weaseled out because he’s afraid to under go such a supposedly benign procedure? Or is his word just generally no good? I’ll report and let you decide. But in the meanwhile, keep this broken promise in mind the next time Hannity sanctimoniously harps on President Obama’s supposedly broken promises about Obamacare.
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. In case you’re wondering, that’s 1646 days or 4 years, 6 months and 2 days ago. Olbermann's guest, Lawrence O'Donnell pointed out that Hannity owes this donation to the troops given that he was such a cheerleader for the Iraq war.
“When Are You Going To Waterboard Yourself For Our Troops?” Don’t add his name on the billboard for legal reasons. The masses will get the picture.
