Sean Hannity Has No Shame

I’ve heard of lying liars but this takes the cake. Sean Hannity and Swift Boat liar Jerome Corsi are spreading a new smear about Barack Obama, this one saying that Obama favors murdering children. It sounds crazy, but then nothing is too crazy for these hateful whackjobs.
From the August 1 edition of Fox News' Hannity's America:

HANNITY: You go through every position that he has --


HANNITY: -- as on the fringe of the left wing --

CORSI: Even --

HANNITY: -- on the fringe of the Democratic Party.

CORSI: Exactly, even extensively looking back at his record when he was in the state legislature in Illinois. His completely pro-abortion position, his --

HANNITY: Even if a child was born.

CORSI: Even if a child was born, he said the woman still had the right to kill the child in an abortion.

HANNITY: Unbelievable.

Yes, unbelievable is the word alright. Hannity and Corsi repeated this lie on Hannity & Colmes and Hannity’s radio show, just to make sure as many people as possible heard the news that Barack Obama favors murdering children.

And people question that someone ingesting a daily dose of this crap would take matters into their own hands and turn violent. It bears remembering that Hannity’s book was in the Knoxville UU shooter’s wingnut library.
