Hannity Watch, Day Two

Well, one day after kinda sorta taking the high road on L’affaire bin Laden, the big doofus is back to his usual hyperventilating.  AT THE TOP OF HIS VOICE.

Today’s Sean Hannity radio show is mostly about the “undeniable fact” that if not for George W. Bush’s torture tactics, the current Administration never would have been able to identify bin Laden’s courier.  Needless to say, this is false:

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed did not reveal the names while being subjected to the simulated drowning technique known as waterboarding, former officials said. He identified them many months later under standard interrogation, they said, leaving it once again up for debate as to whether the harsh technique was a valuable tool or an unnecessarily violent tactic.  [Note: The Associated Press is trying to be “fair and balanced” here.  You don’t have to fall for it.]

The torture meme is now fully ingrained the right-wing psyche.  No amount of truth will ever dislodge it.

In other news, Sean is upset that bin Laden’s corpse wasn’t treated with disrespect.  He’s also taking little baby steps towards humoring the “deathers” who will soon be coming out of the woodwork claiming bin Laden is still alive.

Never a dull moment in Crazy Town.
