Here is why Sean Hannity is dangerous, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Rudy Guliani, Trent Lott…. These regular guests on the Hannity show are given street credit from their appearances. But Hannity has so many democrat pundits on his show. The difference, when he has these conservative-light Republicans on his show, he treats them as friendlies. The listener is unable to see the contrast that is so clear when he has the democrat guest on. Why this is dangerous is that these men, different from RINOs, present a conservative façade, and may actually have conservative credentials, but they are proven to sell out their conservatives principles in favor of the party or other motives. Newt Gingrich is the primary offender. Not only did he favor the ultra liberal scozzafava in New York’s 23rd Congressional district, he has also been soft on climate change, partnering with Bill Clinton on this and other issues. In the words of the great Conservative-Light Presidents, George W. Bush, you are either with us or against us.
Update: As post script to this story, I recently heard a clip of Sean Hannity's interview with pageant winner, Carrie Prejan. It has come out recently that she filmed a provocative video of herself for her boyfriend at the time when she was 17, and he has now sold that video. I'm not going to throw her to the wolves here, but Sean was stumbling over himself to point out that there was no sex involved and that it somehow is not the moral equivelant to other similar tapes. Where he is destructive is by not upholding the standard. Sure she made a mistake and is not promoting the video, but don't excuse its existence.
