I was flipping around last night and stopped on Fox News when I saw Sean Hannity's luggage-sized head. (It's literally the size of the heads sculpted into Mt. Rushmore, but with slightly more granite.) He was talking to a black minister from NH, who was criticizing Howard Dean. The minister said Dean stopped by the church to address his congregation but didn't bother to hang around to talk to them after service. Hannity dismissed Dean as a phony who was just using the church as a photo-op. He neglected to mention President Bush, who uses black kids as a prop at every school he visits.
Then, Hannity told the minister he'd like to visit the church during a service. I would pay big bucks to see that. I saw Hannity once on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He was with his Fox punching bag Alan Colmes, but unlike on the "Fair and Balanced" network, Colmes did most of the talking. Hannity looked really uncomfortable to be out of the safe environs of Fox or his radio studio. He just looked tiny, even with his big head. (It really is huge.)
It made me long even more for the sight of him clapping and singing in a black church. The image that comes to mind for me is Steve Martin as Navin Johnson in "The Jerk."
