Sean Hannity had on former Clinton adviser and toe-sucker Dick Morris to discuss this debt ceiling kabuki theater and Morris was reckless enough to go on the air and pretend that some partial default would not damage the United States' economy, or the rest of the world's for that matter.

Morris and Hannity were both irresponsible enough to claim that the warnings on not raising the debt limit from Obama administration is just a "scare tactic" and that we could be allowed to go past the deadline given by Sec. Tim Geithner and somehow figure out which bills to pay or not pay and that the bond markets would not have reacted well before then.

I thought I'd seen it all with the run-up to the illegal invasion of Iraq and what our corporate media was willing to lie to us about. Sadly, every day they continue to prove me wrong with segments like this one.

Can you help us out?
