Sarah Palin Sounds Off on Julianne Moore Playing Her in 'Game Change' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 11th 2011 4:10PM
Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in 'Game Change,' an upcoming HBO movie about the 2008 election.

Palin stopped by 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.

"Well, I'm all about job creation, and I guess I could provide some of the gals who pretend like they're me some job security," Palin said. "I would ask, though, if they're of the mind of spreading the wealth around that perhaps they could spring for one of my kids' sets of braces or something, as they capitalize on pretending to be me."

Sean Hannity Mocked for His Hybrid Escalade (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Feb 8th 2011 7:21PM
On 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) Sean Hannity and The Great American Panel were discussing the struggles of General Motors, when Hannity spoke about how he might be aiding the American car company.

"Does it help that I have a hybrid Escalade?" Hannity wondered.

This immediately cracked up the panel, as the idea of such a huge gas-guzzling car also being a hybrid stuck them as a "contradiction in terms."

"Why is this funny?" Hannity demanded, pointing out the hybrid Escalade gets twice the gas mileage as his regular Escalade.

"That's like eating diet scrapple," panelist Greg Gutfeld quipped. "I hope you sleep well at night," he added, when Hannity continued to harp on the gas millage.

Suddenly, Hannity realized he was really being mocked for being an imprudent environmental-loving softy who brags about having a hybrid -- the kind that Hannity would usually be making fun of himself.

"Listen, I want to drill in ANWR [Arctic National Wildlife Refuge] and drill in the gulf and I want to build nuclear facilities," the stanch conservative insisted.

Luckily, there was no baby seal in the studio that he could club to really prove his point.

Sarah Palin Says She Won't 'Sit Down' or 'Shut Up' in Wake of Arizona Shooting Controversy (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 18th 2011 12:25PM
Sarah Palin sat down for an exclusive interview on 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News) last night, and addressed the controversy that's been swirling around her in the wake of the Arizona shooting. She continued to express outrage at accusations in the media that her rhetoric and crosshairs maps may have pushed shooter Jared Lee Loughner to commit his horrible crimes. Palin also addressed her political future in the wake of the last week's tragedy.

"I am not ready to make an announcement as to what my political future is going to be, but I'll tell you, Sean, I'm not going to sit down, I'm not going to shut up," Palin proclaimed. "I'm hopefully going to be able to help empower others who believe that one the of things that makes America so exceptional is our right to free speech . . . and if that leads to being a candidate for high office then I will announced that at the appropriate time."

Shorter version: The "lamestream" media will still have Sarah Palin to kick around for the forseeable future.

Sean Hannity: The U.S. Has 'Every Right' to Take Kuwait's Oil (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 17th 2011 6:49PM
Recently, the oil minister of Kuwait commented that America needs to "get used" to oil prices at $100 barrel, which could push the price of gasoline toward the $4 a gallon mark.

On 'Hannity' (Weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) Sean Hannity expressed his displeasure with the oil minister's blunt remarks, given the fact that the U.S. saved his country from Saddam Hussein's aggression back in the first gulf war.

"For the Kuwait oil minister, how short his memory is," Hannity said. "We have every right to go in there and, frankly, take all their oil."

Hmm, what could possibly go wrong with that plan?

Conservatives Sean Hannity and Rich Lowry Are Worried About John Boehner's Crying Habit (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 5th 2011 3:25PM
Republican congressman John Boehner, who just became the 61st Speaker of House, has a well-demonostrated propensity to well up with tears whenever he gets the slightest bit emotional. This often happens when he's on-camera, or giving speeches on the House floor.

Boehner's crying became a topic of discussion on 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9 PM ET Fox News), as dyed-in-the-wool conservatives Sean Hannity and Rich Lowry agreed that the publicly-shed tears were bound to turn into a problem for Boehner.

"I think because of what is going to become a running attack on him, I wish he wouldn't (cry)," Hannity said.

Rich Lowry, editor of the conservative news magazine 'The National Review' was more blunt in his assessment of Boehner's tears:

"Sean, let's be honest here, men who cry in public all the time are going to be made fun of, and probably should be."

Ouch, fellas. So has Boehner lost Fox News and the National Review already? Excuse us while we shed one lonely tear for the new Speaker.

Tucker Carlson Says He Didn't Mean It When He Said Michael Vick Should Be Executed (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 4th 2011 2:55PM
Last week on Hannity (weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News) Tucker Carlson matter-of-factly stated Michael Vick should have been executed for his crimes against dogs. Appearing on the show again Monday, Carlson backtracked from his statement.

"Of course I don't think he should be executed," Carlson told Sean Hannity, admitting that as a dog lover he let his emotions get the best of him when he suggested otherwise.

Later when Hannity began to list the positive ways in which Vick had rehabilitated himself, Carlson had an odd retort.

"As a friend of mine pointed out, a convicted child molester doesn't get to adopt children," Carlson said, even though Hannity hadn't mentioned anything about Vick owning a dog.

Realizing he had let his emotions get the best of him again, a flustered Carlson quickly retracted his comparison of Vick to a child molester.

Tucker Carlson Says Mike Vick Should Have Been Executed (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 29th 2010 4:00PM
Guest hosting 'Hannity' (weekdays 9PM ET on Fox News), veteran TV pundit Tucker Carlson made a provocative statement to begin a debate over whether President Obama should have called the Philadelphia Eagles owner and thanked him for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

"I'm a Christian, I've made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances," Carlson explained. "But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should've been executed for that."

We can't even imagine the punishment Carlson would propose for criminals who actually killed people.

Karl Rove Isn't Sure Sarah Palin Has Thick Enough Skin To Run For President (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 19th 2010 5:40PM
A few weeks ago Karl Rove questioned whether Sarah Palin had the requisite gravitas to be president, in light of the fact she was doing a reality TV show. Palin very strongly and publicly disagreed with Rove's analysis. On 'Hannity' (weekdays 9 PM ET on Fox News), Rove addressed the dispute.

"Guess what? I'm a commentator, and I'm sorry that she took offense at it," Rove said. "I've said nice things about her and I've raised a question. But a confident candidate doesn't get thrown off by that."

Rove then went on to add that he hopes Palin has a "thicker skin" than she displayed in responding to him if she plans on running for president.

The fact that they are both Fox News employees probably prevents Rove from spelling out exactly what he feels about Palin, but it's still pretty clear that the man who helped successfully sell George W. Bush to the nation doesn't think Palin would make a credible GOP nominee for president.

Leanne Tweeden: If Joy Behar Had More Sex, She Wouldn't Be So Cranky Toward Sharron Angle (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 29th 2010 3:50PM
Leeann Tweeden has a theory as to why 'The View's' Joy Behar has been calling Nevada senatorial candidate Sharron Angle a bitch. Appearing on 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM on Fox News) the model/presenter had this to say about Behar:

"Does (Behar) ever have sex with her husband? ... Maybe she's not very happy in the bedroom because she just seems like a bitter old lady."

Tweeden's comments were part of a discussion of the poor treatment female politicians receive in the media.

Of course, if female television commentators like Behar and Tweeden stopped being so catty when it comes to other women, it would go a long way toward giving female politicians more equitable coverage.

[Ed. note: Behar is in a long-term relationship, but is not married]

John Boehner and Barack Obama Like to Talk About Their Skin Color (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 5th 2010 8:18PM
On 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) Sean Hannity asked House Minority Leader John Boehner how he gets along with President Barack Obama. Boehner answered that they get along "fine," which prompted Hannity to wonder if the two smokers smoke cigarettes when they get together.

"No, we don't. But first thing that happens is I come in and (Obama) will say, 'Oh Boehner, you are almost as dark as me,'" the notoriously (and possibly artificially) tan congressmen told Hannity.

"We talk about golf," Boehner continued, mentioning another habit both he and Obama have received criticism for overdoing. "We'll talk about our skin color. We have a nice relationship."

Actually, it is nice that both our president and the leader of the opposition are so, ah, comfortable in their own skins.

Jerry Springer And Sean Hannity Face Off Over Obama (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 27th 2010 2:30PM
Sometimes people forget that before dumbing down television forever, Jerry Springer was the mayor of Cincinnati. We're also reminded -- every time a political bloviater like Sean Hannity does his thing -- how similar the cable news shout-shows are to the kind of daytime yell-fests that Springer revolutionized.

All of which is to say we can't imagine two men more equally qualified to debate politics than Hannity and Springer.

Guess which network had thirteen of the top fifteen cable news shows in 2009?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 30th 2009 5:02PM
Bill O'Reilly bookYou can probably guess that Fox News dominated the ratings in 2009. In fact, thirteen of their shows made it to the top fifteen of the year. The other seven spots of the top 20 are made up of various MSNBC and CNN shows, with only Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Larry King Live cracking the top fifteen.

After the jump, the top fifteen (and here's the whole list).

Hannity gets caught by Jon Stewart ... and apologizes?!?

Hannity, Jon Stewart
Once again people, I'm forced to ask the obvious question: what the hell is going on here? Have we crossed over into the bizarro world? Is up now down? Has black become white? Did Lou Dobbs just announce that he's leaving CNN to take over the host chair of G4's Attack of the Show?

The other day, Jon Stewart called out Sean Hannity and his self titled show for what appeared to be doctored footage of Michelle Bachmann's recent health care rally dubbed the "Super Bowl of Freedom" (does that have anything to do with the Tostidos Fiesta Bowl of Human Rights?) spliced together with images from Glenn Beck's "9/12 Rally" to make the crowd look bigger.

MSNBC's Ed Schultz joins ranks of politcal screamers

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jun 10th 2009 9:00AM
Ed Schultz shouts his way through his show on MSNBC.This reporter was thinking just a little while back, that what this country needs is another intolerant political loud mouth on the airwaves. It doesn't matter what political party they call home -- R or D, liberal conservative. No TV viewer seems able to go more than a few minutes without having some self-important gas bag named Matthews or O'Reilly, sporting one ideology or another, raging at a camera.

Fortunately, MSNBC brings us another fix -- the emerging show from Air America personality Ed Schultz. Resembling a sort of square-headed Rush Limbaugh, Schultz's politics run more toward Keith Olbermann. But, let's face it: None of these guys are on TV to discuss sensible politics on either side of the aisle. They're on the air to pontificate, yell, scream and (in Schultz's case) have a borderline Network-ish nervous breakdown on camera every night.

Hannity does what now?

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 10th 2006 10:11AM
hannityApparently, he sucks ass. At least, that's what a man has written on a sign which he held up behind Hannity's partner Alan Colmes during a live segment of Hannity and Colmes that was captured thanks to a Tivo user. The veracity of Hannity's alleged ass sucking notwithstanding, I think we can all agree it's just plain rude to do something like this in public. The best way to tell someone they suck ass is to write it inside a card, seal the card in an envelope, don a top hat and tails, and present it to them while bowing politely. This is all laid out in chapter 13 of Emily Post's 1922 book Etiquette; it's right after the chapter on how to inform someone they're a douchebag by sewing the word into a cloth napkin. Seriously, people.
