I saw Sean Hannity screaming last night that the Democrats were evil for politicizing the war on terror. Of course, Alan Colmes whimpered something about extremists on both sides of the aisle before wetting himself and them leaving to wash Hannity's car.
I almost fell out of my chair when I heard old Luggage Head Hannity. Politicizing the war on terror? Who would do that? Why, that's downright sleazy and un-American. That would be like a political party holding its nominating convention in New York and moving the date as close to 9/11 as possible to capitalize on that national tragedy. Whoops. That's what the Republicans did. Hmmm.
I was thinking that last night, then this morning I read www.democraticunderground.com. Every Monday, they have their top ten conservative idiots of the week. In today's list, they make reference to the 9-11 hypocrisy. This week's list is especially good, although it might make you a little sick to your stomach.
Bill O'Reilly is on the list, but it's not for the reason I anticipated. O'Reilly, who uses the word "secular" in every sentence he spits out, is acting as point man for Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion." He was on a bunch of shows last week, including "The View", and he was slamming anyone who dared question "The Passion."
On some of those appearances, he did mention the minor fact that Gibson's production company has optioned a fictional book that O'Reilly once wrote. That disclaimer isn't enough; it should run as a crawl underneath O'Reilly's image everytime he goes nuts defending Gibson.
This isn't about Mel Gibson. He has the right to make whatever kind of movie he wants. It's about O'Reilly's righteousness, which appears to be driven only by his desire to see his book end up on the big screen.
Next thing you know they'll make a movie called "Who's Looking Out For You?" Who could they get to play O'Reilly? Maybe Joe Don Baker or Fred Thompson. I can only imagine the Dirty Harry fantasies O'Reilly has when he puts on his jammies at night.
