Sean Hannity Makes Fool of Himself Responding to Jon Stewart About Cliven Bundy (Video)

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 3.18.06 AMBy now most people have heard about the Cliven Bundy situation in Nevada.  Bundy’s only “reason” for not paying the fees that he owes is that he doesn’t recognize the federal government.  Imagine if everyone who violated a federal law got away with it simply because they claimed, “I don’t recognize the federal government.”  Luckily laws are laws, whether someone wants to recognize them or not.  In the instance where someone decides not to recognize them, that’s when they become criminals.

Well, Jon Stewart took Sean Hannity’s defense of Bundy’s criminal behavior to task by pointing out several of Hannity’s hypocrisies when it came to other issues such as immigration or the separation of church and state.  In the past, Hannity’s accused immigrants of “picking and choosing” which laws they want to follow, and in the case involving separation of church and state he mocked an atheist group who had lost a court battle in Utah over the public display of crosses.

Hannity thought he would be clever by showing parts of Stewart’s clip from the night before (though he edited out the clips where Stewart showed what an absolute hypocrite he is) in a pathetic attempt to try to slam Stewart for attacking his position on Bundy’s fees.

Basically, Sean Hannity’s entire argument rests on his belief that it’s just “cattle eating government grass.”  Essentially he doesn’t see what the big deal is, so he doesn’t understand why the government is trying to make Bundy pay these fees.

For those of us who understand how laws work, he has to pay those fees because he’s breaking the law.  Talk like this is ironic coming from someone like Hannity who often says people should take “personal responsibility” for their actions, and often slams people on welfare. Yet here he’s defending Bundy who’s feeding his cattle on land he doesn’t own.  Which, again, is against the law.  He’s basically defending a moocher who doesn’t want to take personal responsibility.

He also tried to emphasize the armed federal officers who converged on the Bundy ranch – without once mentioning the numerous Bundy supporters who showed up brazenly displaying their firearms.  One of his supporters even admitted that they had planned to use women as human shields.

Maybe that’s why the government officials showed up armed?  Just a hunch.

He also asked what Jon Stewart’s “real” feelings were about Bundy, though he made them pretty clear the other night when he mocked the validity of Bundy’s “patriotism” by saying, “Dude, you’re a welfare rancher trying to pull off the world’s largest cattle dine and dash.”

But Hannity made an absolute fool out of himself trying desperately to slam Stewart (someone who’s far more intelligent and educated than he is) by “cleverly” editing out the part where Stewart showed Hannity proving himself to be an absolute hypocrite.  He repeatedly left out fact after fact about the issue the federal government has had with Cliven Bundy, while essentially basing his argument on the premise of, “It’s just grass, who cares about the law?”

Hannity is by far one of the biggest blowhards in all of right-wing media.  His shtick is so worn out and blatantly lazy that I’ve moved past the point of feeling angry when I watch his show.  I just laugh most of the time because of how ridiculous he is.

But in this case of Hannity trying to “one up” Jon Stewart, all he did was showcase what an absolute hypocrite he really is.

    Hannity came to the battle of wits only half ready, making him a half wit.

    • mmdccbslm

      He’d need another half-a-brain for that!!! LOL
      ;<[)

      • Why5ks

        Hannity, Doochie, O’Lielly, Limpbaugh, and Bleck combined don’t have the brain power to take on Stewart.

  • Cemetery Girl

    I adore Jon Stewart, I really do. I admit, I was a slow convert. I watched Daily Show prior to Jon (I won’t mention his name), and didn’t believe it could be so good. It is better. And sadly (and I think Jon would agree) it is better because it is better than the news. Jon doesn’t pull punched. Yes, he has a liberal bias, but if a liberal messes up they are just as equally up for mocking as a conservative. That is the marvelous thing about Jon, your political position makes no difference, if you F up then you F’d up and he will make fun of you. It is a sad day when our “news” comes from a comedy/satire show. I get annoyed when the “real” news channels call him biased. Do they not relative that a comedian on a satirical show is less biased than them?? This is where journalism is now? We have reached a point where our jesters are our greatest source of truth? Have we returned to the dark ages?

    • Andrew Scott

      That’s what happens when fox news, which is a right wing news journal, claims to be fair and balanced. They see everyone with views that are either moderate or center-left and call them both biased.

      • Paul Robinson

        And they are. So what Fox is biased as well – its the nature of humans. The issue is which is the more rational bias to be biased by? There Fox wins, hands down.

      • Charles Campagna

        But its not. Name a republican president who has balanced the budget in the last 50 years. Explain how supply economics has benefited the US economy. Detail the job growth under a republican presidency. Show how life is better in any way, shape, or form under the values Fox champions. You absolutely can’t. The current gop is a miserable failure by every possible measure. They have lost the popular vote in 7 of the last 8 elections. More votes were cats for dems period in 2012. In a generation you will be a museum artifact of a time when things sucked.

        Dumbya as president, combined with the lack of WMD, says otherwise.

    • Chris Watson

      You first would have to consider Fox as real news?

      • JJ

        It’s the ONLY real news. MSNBC is just a place for liberals to make up stories. All you baby killers and Obonzo worshipers will understand soon!! Come on 2016

      • Skyhollower

        Stop trolling, it is unbecoming, but seriously, fox news is the only real news? Seriously? If you don’t care about facts then I suppose it would be the only real news, Look at Factcheck and Politico Fact Check and you can see where Fox News just makes sh&^ up. If you want unbiased news show go watch a foreign based news agency on American affairs, they could care less they just report it. As far as Jon Stewart is concerned his brilliance is his satire, no matter what political party.

      • Paul Robinson

        Example? I have NEVER found Fox accused of making up anything, unlike the others

      • Charles Campagna

        Here is more of Fox admitting they lie

        In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

        Back in December of 1996, Jane Akre and her husband, Steve Wilson, were hired by FOX as a part of the Fox “Investigators” team at WTVT in Tampa Bay, Florida. In 1997 the team began work on a story about bovine growth hormone (BGH), a controversial substance manufactured by Monsanto Corporation. The couple produced a four-part series revealing that there were many health risks related to BGH and that Florida supermarket chains did little to avoid selling milk from cows treated with the hormone, despite assuring customers otherwise.

        According to Akre and Wilson, the station was initially very excited about the series. But within a week, Fox executives and their attorneys wanted the reporters to use statements from Monsanto representatives that the reporters knew were false and to make other revisions to the story that were in direct conflict with the facts. Fox editors then tried to force Akre and Wilson to continue to produce the distorted story. When they refused and threatened to report Fox’s actions to the FCC, they were both fired.(Project Censored #12 1997)

        Akre and Wilson sued the Fox station and on August 18, 2000, a Florida jury unanimously decided that Akre was wrongfully fired by Fox Television when she refused to broadcast (in the jury’s words) “a false, distorted or slanted story” about the widespread use of BGH in dairy cows. They further maintained that she deserved protection under Florida’s whistle blower law. Akre was awarded a $425,000 settlement. Inexplicably, however, the court decided that Steve Wilson, her partner in the case, was ruled not wronged by the same actions taken by FOX.

        FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation.” In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a “law, rule, or regulation,” it was simply a “policy.” Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly. (Anybody surprised this happened in Florida?)

        During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Fox attorneys did not dispute Akre’s claim that they pressured her to broadcast a false story, they simply maintained that it was their right to do so.

      • lindylou

        Did some fact checking, eh? Show the research. I expect that for you “facts” are those that back up your narrow viewpoint of uppity blacks faking a Harvard degree.

        I guess you are too full of yourself to realize I am poking fun at Paul Robinson. Snarks and giggles.

      • Farrago A’gitprop

        The Project on Excellence in Journalism report in 2006 showed that 68 percent of Fox cable stories contained personal opinions, as compared to MSNBC at 27 percent and CNN at 4 percent.

        Jon Stewart reported on his November 10, 2009, broadcast of The Daily Show that Fox News pundit Sean Hannity misrepresented video footage purportedly showing large crowds on a health-care protest orchestrated by Rep. Michele Bachmann. Stewart showed inconsistencies in alternating shots according to the color of the sky and tree leaves, showing that spliced in the shots was footage from Glenn Beck’s much larger 9/12 rally which had occurred two months earlier.

        Hannity’s lies over Obamacare are legend. In a country with truth-in-reporting laws (like most of the world has) Fox wouldn’t even be allowed on the air – as happened in Canada. They were prevented from gaining a broadcasting license as a news channel and would only be allowed one as an entertainment company, because Canadians aren’t as stupid as Fox viewers are, clearly.

      • specialsammy

        You’re an idiot.

      • George Griffin

        real news????real morons talking to idiots!!!!

      • Farrago A’gitprop

        Im not a liberal but the stuff that passes for news on Fox is strictly for retards.

        They’ve done scientific studies that show Fox viewers are less well informed than people that don’t watch any news at all… what does that say about your “the ONLY real news” channel?

        While there’s no doubt CNN and MSNBC have a bias, if you go into it knowing to take their editorials with a pinch of salt, you will get a reasonable news show. With Fox, you are being lied to, more often than not.

      • Paul Robinson

        They’ve NEVER been caught making up the news.

      • CE Lee

        The terrorist fist bump between mr. and mrs. Obama? Sure. You’re right because they don’t report news. They’re a propaganda machine.

    • estfar

      The jesters have historically been the ones who told the truth, and got away with it when the king would have taken the head of any other. So it stands to reason that when lies and invented non-facts are passed off as fair and balanced reporting, and the idiots reporting said lies think they can go up against the truth, that our jesters respond by beating the crap out of them…and so Hannity spent his whole show trying to undo what he never will – he is a joke and Stewart’s bitch.

      • Dedge

    It certainly has taken way too long for way too many people to see how bottom-feeder stupid Hannity is, then throw in all the lying and missing the real point. He’s worthless, except to make fun of.

    LMFAO, Hannity’s rating took a dive this week already. Fox News doesn’t want to admit it but they are well aware that they would be better off without Hannity and his not so real hair.

  • Chris Watson

    I love how he makes fun of Stewart for having writers and using a TelePrompTer, especially when Stewart himself makes it known all the time that that is a fact on his show. We all know no other news or non news shows use TelePrompTer’s, right? I suppose he can sell that to the audience that watches Fox because we all know they’re the only ones in tune with what’s really going on. Laughable

    • TripleMoon

      What’s up with the Right bashing the use of a TelePrompTer? That’s a pretty lame thing to criticize over.

      • Paul Robinson

        It means you have had your text approved. IF you are talking from the heart, you don’t need a teleprompter. IF you know your facts, you don’t need a teleprompter

      • Pipercat

        Looks like you need a teleprompter with this “logic.”

      • CE Lee

        Jon Stewart is an entertainer not a journalist. Journalists should be sure their facts are straight and use notes or whatever ensures that that happens.

      • Arthur Jackson

        Like when Reagan started the whole use of teleprompters for politicians.

  • Jimmy Chancellor

    Cries from a drowning man

    • CE Lee

      You mean Mr. Water boarding is no big deal?

  • Sunnysmom

    The hilarity of this response is that it only suffices his narcissism. If he’s trying to clear his “good” name with his viewers, no need; most of them, nay, probably all of them don’t watch Stewart and even if they did wouldn’t see it from his view anyway. All this is a poopy-pants rant to make himself feel better and pump up the base. So, mission accomplished. lol

    • Dennisdread_2000

      Truth isn’t relevant to them anyway. They don’t live in a world of right vs wrong. They live in a world of your side/my side.

  • Sandy Greer

    LOL I never thought I would say this – but I’m beginning to enjoy Hannity.

      He just needs a red nose, over sized red shoes and a mini bowler!

    Doesn’t Hannity know the definition of domestic terrorist?
    it means they were born here, and live here.

  • John Jackson

    Hanky blows his show out his ass as a bowel movement.

  • Bluesgun

    what the fuck is “proportionality” ?

    oh… and yes we need to send 200 armed agents when bundy has 200+ armed terrorists in his camp.

    • Eg Kbbs

      Or I’d also agree that when the charges and fines add up to over a million, after ignoring court judgements, and refusing law enforcement for well over a decade, that sending armed agents seems prudent.

      • commercialshortsales

        Eg, make sure you pay all your traffic fines buddy.

      • Paul Robinson

        And illegal.

      • Charles Campagna

        He and his toothless wife made threats of violence against us agents. For an officer or agent to show up there without proper protection would be imprudent at best and flat out stupid at worst.
        [T]he rancher insists his cattle aren’t going anywhere. He acknowledges that he keeps firearms at his ranch and has vowed to “do whatever it takes” to defend his animals from seizure.

        “I’ve got to protect my property,” Bundy said as Arden steered several cattle inside an elongated pen. “If people come to monkey with what’s mine, I’ll call the county sheriff. If that don’t work, I’ll gather my friends and kids and we’ll try to stop it. I abide by all state laws. But I abide by almost zero federal laws.”Bundy’s wife Carol told the Sun that she owns a shotgun and is prepared to use it:

        Carol Bundy said her husband is not a violent man, just a person who will protect what he owns. For that matter, so is she.

        “I’ve got a shotgun,” she said. “It’s loaded and I know how to use it. We’re ready to do what we have to do, but we’d rather win this in the court of public opinion.” [Las Vegas Sun, 9/23/13]

    • therain

      I don’t believe Bundy had “terrorists”.

      • Paul Robinson

        Of course you are right. They were patriots coming to the defense of someone suffering from an out of control and illegal occupation of their land by a corrupt government. The turtles were a cover story – Reid got an exemption for his buddy’s solar farm just 35 miles away to ignore the turtle habitat, and the government euthanized half the turtles they had in captivity – some endangered species!

      • Charles Campagna

        He’s a welfare thief who is responsible for everything that happens there. If he obeys the law instead of stealing then there are no federal agents at his door. Bundy and his hillbilly wife made specific violent threats prior to the arrival of the agents.
        And you are being Hannity incarnate pretending to care about wildlife. You Tea Party rednecks couldn’t care less about animals. Hilarious!!!

      • Dennisdread_2000

        They don’t really care about half of the things they say they care about anyway. They are wholly insincere. As this clip shows they, like Sean Hannity went from a stance of “the law is the law!” to one of “fug the law!” almost overnight.

    • therain

      What about the almost $2 million al sharpton owes? Yet he gets to pal around with the pResident.

    • commercialshortsales

      EXcept for one thing…hate to confuse you with the facts. The patriots came after the 200 BLM and the 3 hired snipers took aim on private, peaceful American Citizens.

      • Gerard Simon

        No, not peaceful Americans but violent armed welfare cheats… plain & simple – who by the way, although carrying the American flag deny the country’s existence.

    • Paul Robinson

      The 200 armed patriots were NOT there when the 200 armed fed agents arrived, began killing cattle, destroying private property, damaging turtle burrows and tasering the family. They came to the Bundy’s defense. Timing matters. You seem oblivious to reality

      • Charles Campagna

        Patriots, criminals. I am not sure how you got those confused. But as a conservative you must be waiting on Hannity to tell you what to think. Nice try, but “tasering” isn’t a word. I have watched a lot of video shot by the alleged patriots and the picture pretty much shows your description of the events as lacking in detail at best and just an outright lie at its worst. These were not simple protestors sitting quietly like the occupy movements. What is happening is a bunch of inbreds are extremely aggressive (many had to be restrained by other inbreds) towards law enforcement. I saw a man kick and assault a police officer in the line of duty. A police dog is considered an officer. I have looked for your post on your outrage at this since you are such an animal lover but I don’t see it. You are probably saving that for later. The officers instructed the inbreds to back down but they continue to come at the officers. Here is a stone cold fact: if a police officer has a taser in his hand and he tells you to back off or you will get tasered, if you go back at him then you should expect to be tasered.
        And here is the crazy part, I saw NO ONE get tasered!!! Not one!! Instead, the officers leave rather than engage and hurt a lot of people. Those evil doers!!!
        Your fatasy analysis aside, the picture reveals an incident far different than the one Hannty told you about.

      • Chris

        Yeah but the government has been trying to collect the fees for a decade, had four court-ordered rulings ignored by Bundy, and then he and his wife threatened gun violence if anyone came to collect the fees or their cattle. That sounds like grounds for the government to show up the way they did. But hey, Bundy doesn’t recognize the government so he doesn’t have to follow the law, right?

    Hannity wants proportionality? He wants the government to go to court? Didn’t the government go to court back in 1993? And many times since.

    Government grass? Actually it is Native American grass, and the Bundy family got access thanks to federal violence removing the natives. Hannity is concerned about removing cattle? Let the natives take the cattle and enforce limits of Bundy’s access.

    • Paul Robinson

      I think you need a lesson in US history. And the constitution

      • poppaDavid

        History:

        1864 Northern Nevada becomes a state, the Virgin valley was part of Arizona territory and occupied by Paiute natives.
        1867 Southern tip of Nevada transferred from Arizona Territory to Nevada and the Virgin valley was still occupied by Paiute natives.
        1875 United States Army forcibly relocates Paiute natives to reservation and takes possession of their land.
        1877 Bundy family moves into valley.
        1946 BLM established to manage federal land
        1948 Bundy’s parents buy ranch from Raoul and Ruth Leavitt.
        1954 Bundy starts grazing cattle on federal land.
        1993 federal government revokes grazing permit.

        Constitution:
        Article III, Section 2. “The judicial Power shall extend … to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;”

        Basically, the U.S. Army stole the land for the federal government, and the federal courts have jurisdiction to resolve any controversy over ownership or use. If you want to provide a lesson in History or the Constitution, I suggest that you read them first.

    Hannity is one of the dimmer bulbs in a huge pack of dim bulbs on Fox. Watching him flail around and try and deflect what a phoney he is makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Fox has no credibility.

  • Eg Kbbs

    In complaining that Stewart took him out of context, Hannity took some clips out of context and suppressed other parts. Also made sure to use the long existing technique of painting the situation as a matter of a pure hero (Hannity, Faux News, etc) versus evil (Stewart who interviews Obama and Stevens who is a representative of the evil Islam). Unfortunately, a technique almost necessary for good drama but for centuries leading to disaster in politics.

    What an ass!! He has his own spin on his spin. One day his head is going to explode. That will be fun to watch.

  • therain

    I guess I missed that part where stewart had a good comeback. Seems to me Hannity walked all over stewart and his third-rate “comedy” show.

    • Charles Campagna

      I bet it is kinda hard for you to hear with your head so far up your bum, huh? I will let my prayer circle know.

    • CE Lee

      If his show is third rate and Hannity is confident of his story why did he waste time responding and defending himself? Especially because 99.99% his loyal viewers don’t watch Stewart or wouldn’t agree with him if they did. Hannity got caught being a hypocrite.lol.and you are defending this mess.

    • Pork N. Bean

      Obvious you’re a conservative troll. You vote against your own best interest, bet you profess to be a patriot (but know just one sentence of the Constitution, verbatim, from the 2nd Ammendment) and probably believe old Cliven and his band of Tea Party Taliban teahadists have a right to use women as human shields. A real bunch of macho guys alright!

    • Dennisdread_2000

      Hahahahahahaha!

      Hannity walks over everyone shallow and ignorant enough to believe anything he says.

  • Peter Bartlett

    Google Bud Purdy!

  • Pam Barone

    Ummm….does Sean Hannity understand that The Daily Show is a comedy show?

    • CE Lee

      No. He doesn’t know that his show is entertainment and not news either.

  • therain

    One thing I will say, I think ALL of those resources should have been on our border, protecting our country.

  • Paul Robinson

    To any one with half a brain – there was NO possibility that Hannity ever lost anything to Stewart. This article is masterful (well, maybe NOT so masterful) deception. The issue isn’t that Bundy doesn’t recognize the government – it is that he KNOWS the Fed has NO right to cancel his 100 year old agreement with the state, payment for which he made every year, until they refused to accept it. We are a nation of laws – depending on what mood potus is in any any given time. BUT the way the govt attempted to drive Bunby from his land was NOT according to law. Nor did it make any sense to pay 900,000 dollars to roundup, transport and sell cattle to collect a one million dollar debt. This was a land-grab, and nothing more.

    • Charles Campagna

      No Hanity got owned. And Stewart ‘doubled down” on him tonight. Hannity failed to explain the hypocrisies that Stewart pointed out. He has ample opportunity to explain why he says one thing when it is in his best interest and then says the opposite when that suits him. He praised the use of force against the occupy protesters as he watched quiet, peaceful people being painted with pepper spray. Yet he decries armed agents showing up to enforce the law on the property of a man who has made public threats of gun violence against them. Did he tell us why what are obviously conflicting opinions can be congruent? No.Instead he edited them out of the piece. Rationalize that.
      And while you are it think about how Stewart used his own words against him. He did it again tonight. Stewart has done it over and over. Someone at Fox news needs to start keeping their positions straight and Stewart won’t have any ammo. Or they could leave politics up to people who are intelligent and quit pandering to the lowest common denominator like yourself.

      • CE Lee

        Problem is the folks who need to see the hypocrisy only watch one channel and don’t read anything. Fox has no reason to change.

      • Dennisdread_2000

        Hannity got owned and exposed being the conservative hypocrite that he is, hence he felt he needed to respond(with more garbage as it were).

        To anyone who isn’t completely brainwashed, full of elephant dung, or just a moron, he and his ‘news’ station have zero credibility.

    • Kenneth Browning

      God damn. Tired of hearing it called a land grab. You can’t “land grab” land you own. The federal government has owned that land since 1848 from the Mexican Cession, currently and have always held the deed to the land and court documents show this.

  • Ronald Hogue

    Bundy is a deadbeat. He is the only cattle rancher not paying the fees when all other are. And… how dare they try to compair this guy to Rosa Parks. Remember, Rosa Parks paid to ride the bus. Unlike Bundy.

    • Dennisdread_2000

      She threatened no violence either. The comparison to Rosa Parks was a dog whistle to the other racists.

  • Bruce Linton

    Hannity (long sigh)
    Nothing more needs to be said.
    It’s a new meme for the normally intelligent too Koched up to be able to think for themselves.

  • annicka

    Since people like Hannity love to support “privatization”, the BLM should “privatize” government land management. Couldn’t you imagine what the Donald would do if someone trespassed on his lands or didn’t pay his “for profit” grazing fee?

  • S L Moore

    Hannity is so lame. He will never, never–get it.

  • Michael Klein

    Mr Williamson seems to like to start a discussion by insulting the people he disagrees with. Is that the style that the National review preferrers? To insult somebody as smart as Stewart is really stupid even if you disagree with him.

  • Smedley N

    ‘Cows eating free government grass’
    Uh, Mr. Hannity, why then do you get on people getting ‘Free government welfare’ ??? It’s the same thing.
    This Bundy guy is a government moocher plain and simple.

  • Chloe Rowles

    “He also tried to emphasize the armed federal officers who converged on the Bundy ranch – without once mentioning the numerous Bundy supporters who showed up brazenly displaying their firearms. One of his supporters even admitted that they had planned to use women as human shields.”

    Let’s set the record straight on this….the first handful of protestors were NOT armed, and they were Tasered, thrown to the ground, and had the dogs sicked on them. Because they saw back hoes and dump trucks on the property, the Bundy’s were afraid they were killing and burying some of their cattle. (which turned out to be true) The videos showing this abuse of power went viral and THAT is why so many people showed up armed to protect the Bundy side.

  • Chloe Rowles

    I don’t get why no one is talking about, or asking questions about who ordered the ‘no fly zone’ over the Bundy Ranch, which kept news helicopters from reporting, and who ordered the shut down of the cell phones in the area(which I understand didn’t last long)!!! To me this is very important! The only people in this country who have the authority to do that are the president and the heads of FCC and FAA. DID THEY DO THAT? Trying to keep the public from knowing what is going on, or what the government is doing, should scare every one of us. In an declared emergency, only the government will be able to disseminate information. Freedom of the press goes out the window and along with it goes the people’s right to know..

  • Donald Kjenstad

    Lets see,,,, Hannity’s audience( THE OVER 70 ) is going down at a fast rate, while Jon’s audience is growing. What does that tell you.

  • Anne

    Does Hannity or Faux News EVER do research? The Federal Government has taken Bundy to court numerous times…and won. This has been done over a 20 year period. What part of that is not proportionality?? The protestors had a right to show up; they did not have a right to show up with guns. The militia was 100% wrong. Bundy is 100% wrong. The Conservatives are trying to make things like this happen. They are a lawless bunch.

  • Sean Hannity was never the greatest at promos, often repetitive and relying on name calling without strong arguments. “Comedic hack with his 50 writers” is one of the more perplexing critiques as unlike a TalkRadio program the Daily Show doesn’t claim to be driven by a singular voice. Comedic programs in general are known for having plenty of writers from (Late Night, Award shows) despite the appearance of one driving force.
    This is shaping up to be a good feud.

    So tell me, how does a fool go about making a fool of himself?
