Sean Hannity hasn't figured out yet that any time you decide to get into a pissing match with a professional comedian, you're going to lose.
April 22, 2014

So how desperate is Sean Hannity to get back as The Daily Show's Jon Stewart after he mocked his insane coverage from this Monday, where he was whipping up the wingnuts over "welfare rancher" Cliven Bundy -- and managed to make Glenn Beck look like a "voice of reason" in comparison?

Desperate enough that he decided to whip out the Bill Ayers and Cat Stevens cards to go after Stewart. I kid you not. I hate to break it to Hannity, but any time you decide to get into a pissing match with a professional comedian, you're going to lose. Just ask your buddy Eric Bolling how well attacking Stewart worked out for him.

If Stewart responds to Hannity, I expect a similar response to the one we got from Bolling coming from Hannity -- Stewart being taken out of context, denial, and praying none of his brain dead viewers ever actually watch The Daily Show.

Here's how "fair and balanced" Fox covered Scammity's rant at their blog: 'Cheap Apologists of the Obama Admin': Hannity Fires Back At 'The Daily Show':

Sean Hannity tonight took on Jon Stewart, after “The Daily Show” host mocked Hannity’s coverage of the Nevada ranch standoff.

“He’s kind of obsessed with this program,” Hannity said of Stewart, calling him and his friends at Comedy Central “cheap apologists for the Obama administration.”

Hannity aired several clips from his own coverage, in which he references the lack of proportionality in the government’s response to Bundy and his family.

“What are we talking about here? Cows eating free government grass. Can I make my position any more clear to Mr. Stewart? I stand for proportionality. What I do not stand for are 200 armed federal agents and snipers pointing their guns at the Bundy family and their supporters. I do not support members of the BLM pushing, shoving women, and cattle being euthanized and killed, and mass graves for cattle for no reason. But I have to be honest. I am shocked that Jon Stewart, who claims that he’s such a devout law and order type of guy, would be OK with any of this,” Hannity said.

Hannity wondered where Stewart stands – with Harry Reid, who called the Bundy family “domestic terrorists,” or Donna Brazile, who likened Bundy to Timothy McVeigh?

Hannity seems to confuse "obsession" with giving his writers a treasure trove of garbage from Bullshit Mountain to make fun of.
