Who’s the Liberal: Hannity or Coulter?

Posted on | June 14, 2013 | 52 Comments

Sean Hannity has a bad habit of interrupting and hectoring guests he disagrees with and, in the case of the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, Hannity has evidently decided that criticism of Marco Rubio is impermissible. This led to an interesting exchange Wednesday night:

Hannity asked [Ann Coulter] what she would do about the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are already in the United States.
“This is a total fraud and a fig leaf that the American people can’t sleep at night,” Coulter responded, “because the situation is exactly the same today as it was –”
“You’re not answering my question,” Hannity interrupted. “You’re like a liberal.”
Ooh! That got a reaction.
“No, you are like a liberal, making a silly argument,” Coulter retorted. “It’s a straw man argument. Nobody cares. This idea that it’s an emergency, it’s a crisis — it’s preposterous. The same thing will happen as is happening now.”

You can watch the video at ViralRead. And obviously, Coulter is right: Hannity is “like a liberal,” because he is letting his emotional empathy with Marco Rubio overwhelm facts and logic. Also, he’s “like a liberal,” interrupting and hectoring his guest.

    This hits a point I’ve tried to ‘splain to folks on the right for years. To this day, they still think you do a “rally” by renting a portable PA from some party rental place, and have a guy who claims he knows about PA’s and stereos mixing it from the stage.

    Then the vidographer is always some guy in the back with a consumer-brand video camera on a wobbly stand, with one-size-fits-all lenses and instead of blending the stage feed with a separate audience mic, he just records it with the camera’s built in.

    Mind you, this isn’t for somebody running for town council, this is for Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz at a rally that features tens of thousands of people.

    The Dems beat us on wattage alone, every single time.
