Jon Summers, Nevada Democratic Party Comm Dir. was on Hannity & Colmes, to discuss Rep. Jim Gibbons, R-Nev. and his speech. When Summers had the proff that Gibbon's palgerized the speech, Hannity melted down.
Sunners: We learned today, news that's been broken today is the speech that COngressman Gibbon's delivered was actually a plagerized speech....
Hannity: That's an allegation that you are making, and I'm not going to sit her and let you make it. If the congressman would like to come on and respond to you one day I'll do that, but you're playing politics with that. That's not why you are invited on the show
Summers: Actually Sean, it's an allegation that's already been reported on here in the Nevada press..
Of course we know that he did steal the speech, because Gibbons admitted as much:
"Chapman told the Elko Daily Free Press this morning Gibbons had not requested permission to use her speech, which she said she delivered Feb. 2, 2003, at a Stand Up for America rally in Alabama. She said Gibbons apologized today for using large portions of her speech.
"I spoke with him this morning and he has apologized," she said."
Hannity seemed to come unglued. I was waiting for him to turn Summers microphone off. Instead of answering Summers charges, Hannity uses the bait and switch technique that he's perfected. Bring a guest on to discuss one topic, then ask that guest to apologize for something a democrat said regarding another topic.
