Every Republican running in the 2016 presidential election longs for the times they can spend with Sean Hannity. He's a no-talent right-wing propagandist of the highest order who will most likely ask the questions you supply him. He joined Ted Cruz after the Senator gave his speech to the CPAC crowd and turned it into one of his usual love-in sessions.

Raw Story supplies the blow by blow:

Hannity started out by daring Cruz to reveal, how had he bravely survived criticism for helping to shut down the government in 2013?

Cruz’s response: Kill Obamacare.

Hannity: Tell us how much you hate the Republican leadership in Congress.

Cruz: I want to disrupt politics like I was Uber.

Hannity: Kill ISIS?

Cruz: Kill ISIS!

Hannity: Liberal birthers?

Cruz: “Look, I was born in Calgary, my mother was an American citizen by birth. Under federal law, that made me an American citizen by birth. The Constitution requires that you be a natural-born citizen.”

Hannity: President Cruz?

Cruz: Kill Obamacare. Kill the IRS. Put IRS agents on the southern border. Kill the EPA. Constitution! Shining City on a Hill!

Yadda, yadda. But then, Hannity finally asked an interesting question: What did Cruz think about Colorado legalizing marijuana?

Cruz joked that Colorado had supplied CPAC brownies, and he and Hannity then indulged in a little stoner humor as Cruz kidded about being on the ‘Magical Mystery Hannity Hour.’ Mr. States Rights then had to admit that if Colorado wanted pot, it was OK with him, even though he doesn’t favor legalization himself.
