Hannity and Swiftie O'Neill: A slimy marriage made in heaven
On the heels of Senator John Kerry finally getting to confront one of the cretins who helped finance the Swift Boat Liars in their 2004 quest to smear his Vietnam service, Swift Boat founder John O'Neill went on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes last night to keep his 15 minutes of dubious fame going.
Despite the fact that the men who actually served with Kerry in Vietnam were not only behind him, but participated in his presidential campaign, despite the truth that the Swift Boat Liars' claims have long since been debunked and despite the likes of John McCain, John Warner and other prominent Republicans calling the allegations pure trash, O'Neill always has a home whenever he can slither into the Fox News studios.
The ultraconservative Sean Hannity began by taking Kerry's questions on whether someone with Sam Fox's clear ethical shortcomings should be the new U.S. Ambassador to a Club Med, much less an important ally, and turning them into evidence that Kerry is "bitter and angry over his defeat."
Hannity, who accused Kerry of "badgering" Fox by actually asking questions in a Senate hearing -- I think Sean got a little spoiled by the do-nothing Republican Congress -- is, of course, full of crap.
