Sean Hannity obviously counts on his viewers being completely clueless. Hannity allowed Dick Armey to come back on his show again and pretend that his Freedom Works astroturf organization that's helping to fund a great deal of these Tea Parties is a grass roots organization.
Hannity: Well you're having a profound impact. You're right in the heart of everything that's going on with the Tea Party in this country. It looks like we are really witnessing a conservative ascendency, bottom up where people are going to take the country back.
Armey: Yeah and it's really exciting to watch this. These folks have sprung up all over the country. It's the most natural, authentic, grass roots movement I've ever seen.
Armey: And they really love this country and the emotion that's brought them out is fear. They're afraid of what these folks in Washington are going to do to their country.
Hannity: It's so organic. I mean it really in many ways is inspiring to see this all around the country and having an impact on a lot of races.
News Hounds debunked Dick Armey when he and Hannity gave us the same dog and pony show back in April.
And then of course we have all of Rachel Maddow's reporting on this which she recapped for us back in March.
