Continuing his long-standing effort to enrich the civic discourse, Hannity recently said:

If you believe that these are consequential, transformative times, if you believe our borders need to be secure, if you believe that we need to cut taxes to keep the economy humming, if you think it's an absolute mistake and a disaster to pull out of Iraq too early, if you think we're gonna retreat in the war on terrorism, if you think we're gonna be less safe, less secure with a party that has a pre-9-11 mentality, then this is the time not to give up. This is the moment to say that there are things in life worth fighting and dying for and one of 'em is making sure Nancy Pelosi doesn't become the speaker.

Three questions for the Hannitized one:

1) So if given the choice, would you actually trade your life to keep Nancy Pelosi from becoming speaker?

2) If yes, is this localized to Pelosi, or generalizable to any Democrat?

3) Since you included "fighting" in your quote, would you be willing to murder Pelosi? What about a suicide mission?
