You know your conservative TV show sucks when even Republican politicians say as much when they think they're off-air. Sean Hannity was hard to take when his show was mildly entertaining during its Hannity & Colmes phase, but now it's unwatchable -- unless you're a mindless stooge. His coverage of Ferguson is simply the worst and Missouri's Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) seems to agree with me as his true opinions were caught on-air while he believed his mic was not live.

After airing interviews that a Fox correspondent conducted live on the ground in Ferguson, Mo., host Sean Hannity turned to the lieutenant governor for his thoughts on renewed protests in the city.

While Hannity was introducing him, Kinder sighed and spoke over the host.

"God, that is terrible TV," he said, looking off camera.

Hannity seemed caught off guard. "Well," he said, and continued his introduction. Throughout, Kinder didn't look at the camera. When it was finally time for him to speak, he remained silent.

"Peter, can you hear me?" Hannity asked.

"Oh, I can hear you, I thought you were coming to me after the break, Sean," the lieutenant governor said.

Nuff' said.
