Arianna Huffington: Hannity's bone

The Blog | Arianna Huffington: Is Sean Hannity Addicted to Coulter Crack? | The Huffington Post: "Venturing into enemy territory, I was on 'Hannity and Colmes' last night, along with Ann Coulter. We were ostensibly there to discuss the ongoing Muslim cartoon controversy and the media's reaction to the Cheney shooting story.

But Sean Hannity only wanted to talk about one thing: Alec Baldwin's blog. Especially Alec Baldwin's assertion that 'Cheney is a terrorist. He terrorizes our enemies abroad and innocent citizens here at home.'

Hannity was like a dog with a bone, chewing over that turn of phrase again and again and again, and repeatedly asking me if I was 'proud' to have had such a statement on the Huffington Post.

He apparently had a hard time grasping the concept that I can be proud of the wide range of opinion we offer our readers without having to agree with every single sentiment expressed by our bloggers. But, for the record, as I told him last night, I don't think that Dick Cheney is a terrorist. I think that Dick Cheney is an atrocious vice president who has inflamed terrorism, and whose policies have helped create far more terrorists than they have destroyed.

But Hannity just couldn't get over it. It was as if Baldwin's comment was the worst thing he'd ever heard. But here's what I love: the whole time Sean was obsessing about Baldwin's over-the-top rhetoric, he was sitting elbow to elbow with Ann Coulter, the reigning heavyweight champion of hyperbolic vitriol and over-the-top invective."

I just want to know why Ann Coulter was given control of U.S. port security in Baltimore, Miami, New York, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and New Jersey!
