Hannity & Hyperbole

Maybe Sean Hannity is out of sorts thanks to the one-way trip George W. Bush is taking into the gutter. Maybe he drinks waaay too much coffee (or kool-aid?). One thing's for sure: he's a demagogue.

Here's an exchange from his May 3 radio broadcast that has been picked up by Media Matters:
HANNITY: Well, the Palestinians—this could be the beginning of democratization, and liberty and freedom in that part of the world. Do you deny that's a possibility?

CALLER: No, I don't deny it, but they can also vote for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas on the West Bank—

HANNITY: Well, you could vote for Hillary Clinton tomorrow, too, for crying out loud, [caller], but, I mean, does that mean that we sit back and do nothing?
Wow! A bit unhinged. Good thing Colmes wasn't there or he would have hemmed and hawed and—oh, forget it!

Later on in the call, Hannity called 9/11 the "worst attack in history". Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he meant the worst attack in American history (just so long as we don't count the Civil War).
