UPDATED: Sean Hannity, the guy who says he's a big Christian Conservative, yells at Robert Kuttner, a policy wonk type of guy with such venom that it was kind of shocking actually. I would have expected Hannity's rage directed elsewhere so it struck me as odd.

Kuttner: "I'm not here to be insulted, either. You're doing RNC talking points."
Hannity: I don't have any RNC - these are HANNITY talking points. I write the talking points. You spew this line..."
Kuttner: "I don't spew any goddamn line. Stop insulting me or I'm walking off the set."
Hannity: "Go ahead! Go! Good-bye! Leave! I don't care! Go right ahead! Walk off! You said the economy's in dire straits."
Kuttner: "Do you want to deny that, you fool?"

After Robert finished up the opening segment with Colmes, the cowardly Hannity went berserk on Robert, telling him all he said was garbage and more garbage, but much nastier than usual. When Kuttner said that Hannity was reading RNC talking points, Hannidate said that he writes the talking points. Now, he was talking about Hannity's talking points, but there is no differences between what Hannity says and what Drudge/Linbaugh and McCain's camp say. Usually there's a 36 hour turnaround from Hannity's mouth to the McCain camp making a video so Robert wasn't that far off.

Kuttner threatened to walk off the set and actually he should have. Instead, he called Sean a fool and a host of other names. Robert should feel proud though since Hannity called McCain a liar when he was backing Romney.
