Hannity's money quote involves heads up asses and President Obama.
Hannity's Ratings Must Be Suffering, So He Tore Into Jon Stewart

For some reason, Sean Hannity has a bug up his butt when it comes to Jon Stewart. Maybe it's because Stewart has more clout than Hannity, or maybe it's just meanness.

Whatever it is, Hannity's recent interview with Politico had this little gem, via Raw Story:

“Jon’s problem is he has his head so far up [President Barack] Obama’s a*s he cannot see clearly,” Hannity said in a statement. “He is obviously better suited to reading his joke writers material, and making his clapping seal audience happy.”

Ooooh, I guess that's how manly men talk or something.

Why the Hannity angst?

The latest clash between Stewart and Hannity began when Stewart criticized the Fox host in an interview with Rolling Stone that touched on Stewart’s views on both Hannity’s colleague Bill O’Reilly and Fox News itself.

“Sean Hannity is probably the most loathsome dude over there,” Stewart said. “That’s just pure cynicism, and it’s horrible. Everything is presented in as devious a manner as it could be possibly be presented.”

The truth hurts, I know. But it looks like sour grapes from here.

Hey Sean, a little grace might be in order, if you actually understood what that is.
