The Friday edition of Hannity was packed with excitement. It was “Obamacare Panel” time again, and Hannity filled the room with what he thought was the typical mouth-breathing squad of right wing “yes-men” ready to rail against the evils of providing millions with the opportunity to obtain affordable healthcare. Unfortunately for Hannity, he met with a strange circumstance: somebody was using facts on his show!
Two of Hannity’s guests schooled him on the high points of the law and the hypocrisy of Republicans who oppose it. Hannity’s response was predictable: he didn’t enjoy the perpetuation of real, live information on his show–but no one could have guessed what would happen next…unless they have watched Hannity. His response was a simple “I gotta go.”
Of course, Sean has to find something to offset the damage done by the well-informed individual who poisoned his followers’ minds with the idea that “Obamacare” might not be so bad, after all. Hannity, in an attempt to reinforce the idea that group-think is important, posed one last question to his gathered mass of idiots: “Who here thinks this [law] is wildly popular?” Of course, his largely conservative audience did not respond favorably to that question.
FOX News commentator Alan Colmes intervened with a list of the popular reforms the law affords to the citizenry, but Hannity was ready with a scathing rebuttal that floored Colmes and proved once and for all that “Obamacare” is the most horrible thing since Rand Paul’s Jheri Curl: “Coming up next…”
Hannity has shown us a textbook example of the typical conservative response: if the facts get in the way, lie. If lies don’t work, use peer pressure. If even that fails, cut and run!
