About the time I decide Glenn Beck really is oozy slime from the ninth circle of hell, Hannity slithers back into focus. Truly, there are some people so despicable, so utterly amoral...but I digress.

Last night Sean Hannity went on and on with a litany of lies intended to prove we have an irresponsible President. In the ultimate irony, Hannity claims Obama is not "interested in the facts or the truth." Oh, there's a hoot. He goes on to claim the White House was slow to react to the Nashville floods despite Nashville's mayor saying the opposite, Obama hasn't read Arizona's immigration law, the oil spill is Obama's Katrina (long debunked here, here, and here), and makes the scurrilous, unfounded, ignorant claim that this Administration is incompetent.

At the end he asks, "President Obama, is it time to step up? or maybe step aside?"

I feel the need to respond to him directly.

Gosh, Hannity. Where was that question when you were so bent in 2007 you felt the need to rant about "Democrats emboldening our enemies" by criticizing President Bush?

Mr. Hannity, were YOU ready to step up or step aside when your good pal Hal Turner was rounded up by the FBI and carried away for threatening federal judges?

And while I'm at it, Mr. Hannity, did you call for President Bush to step up or step aside when it was clear for anyone with half a brain to see how the Cheney-Bush administration perverted the rule of law with the efforts to politicize the US Attorneys? No, no you didn't. You APPLAUDED the erosion of our civil rights and constitution.

You know what I truly dislike, Mr. Hannity? I truly dislike people who stand up and thump their chests, puff up and call themselves "Christians" and "patriots" while using their taxpayer subsidized nonprofit organization to pay for private jets, nasty mailers, book-pimping and other activities unrelated to the purpose of said non-profit organization.

So here's the deal, Mr. Hannity. YOU can sit down and shut up or you can step down. At this point, you're a useless sack of words spewing onto the airwaves while MY taxpayers dollars subsidize your effort to dodge your own obligations to our country while you make a mockery of true patriots and Christians.

That is all.
