For all his crowing about Palin, McCain and "Reagan Conservatism," Hannity really is SCARED. Randi Rhodes played an audio clip of the little whore losing it in a discussion with Robert Kuttner and Crooks & Liars, FOX News Hounds and Think Progress have the video clip. Here's a partial transcript:
Kuttner: “I’m not here to be insulted, either. You’re doing RNC talking points.”

Hannity: I don’t have any RNC - these are HANNITY talking points. I write the talking points. You spew this line…”

Kuttner: “I don’t spew any goddamn line. Stop insulting me or I’m walking off the set.”

HANNITY: Go ahead. Go. Good-bye. Walk off. … Please. I don’t care. Go right ahead. Walk off. You said the economy is in dire straits.

KUTTNER: It is in dire straits. You want to deny that, you fool?

HANNITY: You fool, you idiot.

Here's the video clip:

UPDATE: Here's more of the transcript, from LexisNexis -

KUTTNER: Well, he's intermittently closed it. I mean, I think sometimes he tries to be too high minded. He tries to be the guy who bridges differences, who's post-partisan.

HANNITY: Stop it. Stop it. This is -- this is garbage you're spewing here.
KUTTNER: No name calling yet.

HANNITY: No, it's not name calling. But it's garbage you're spewing.
KUTTNER: He's the guy who's -- he's the guy who's trying to be idealistic. And this is a -- this is a cutthroat campaign.

HANNITY: He's hiding -- he's hiding who he really is. You don't hang out with Pfleger and Ayers and Wright for 20 years and then just say, "I didn't hardly know these guys." If you want to believe that -- that garbage, you go right ahead.

You are voting for Obama, by the way. This is a pro-Obama book. You are voting for Obama.

KUTTNER: But I'm not here to do Obama...

HANNITY: Stop it. You -- when you say...

KUTTNER: I'm not here to be insulted either. You're doing RNC talking points, Sean.
HANNITY: Excuse me. I don't have RNC -- these are Hannity talking points. I write the talking points.
KUTTNER: Right. Yes, yes. Where do you get them from?

HANNITY: Here's what we have. You say -- you spew this line, DNC talking points.

KUTTNER: I don't spew any goddamn line.

HANNITY: You said the economy...

KUTTNER: Stop insulting me or I'm walking off the set.

HANNITY: Go ahead. Go. Good-bye. Walk off.

KUTTNER: Are you going to let me have my two minutes?

HANNITY: Please. I don't care. Go right ahead. Walk off. You said the economy is in dire straits.

KUTTNER: It is in dire straits. You want to deny that, you fool?

HANNITY: You fool, you idiot.

KUTTNER: You're going to deny that the economy is in dire straits?

HANNITY: For the first time -- sir, sir, unemployment in this country...

KUTTNER: Sir, sir, my butt.

HANNITY: ... has been lowest than in the last four decades. Economic growth in the last quarter was 3.4 percent.


KUTTNER: Lower in the last four decades?

HANNITY: Interest rates, inflation have been lower in the Bush years than they've been in the last three decades, and you are trying to convince the people of America that something is...

KUTTNER: Do you get a turn to talk?

HANNITY: Go ahead.

KUTTNER: Well, if you can persuade the American person that the average family is doing great, your guy deserves to win the election. But I don't think the American people are that stupid.

HANNITY: Yes, OK. So you're saying dire straits. You know what? Here's the position you Democrats are in. You've got to convince the American people the surge has failed, the war is lost...

KUTTNER: We're talking about the economy.

HANNITY: Excuse me. We had record unemployment compared to the last four decades, lower than the last four decades average, 3.4 percent gross - - growth, and you're using the term "dire." You've got to convince the American people the economy is in bad shape and the war is lost, and it's all based a lie. That's not true.
KUTTNER: Excuse me, it's based on people's own lives. People's health insurance are going up in smoke. People's pensions are going up in smoke. People's jobs are being exported to China. Unemployment is 6.1 percent and rising. The administration is bailing out Wall Street, because a Republican...

HANNITY: And we got out of the recession that Clinton and Gore gave us. And we got out of the negative impact on the economy on 9/11. Now we have made...

KUTTNER: If you think the economy is great, you campaign on that.

HANNITY: And Barack Obama wants to spend $1 trillion on new spending. A trillion dollars in new government spending on nationalized health care. Is that good for the economy?

KUTTNER: We probably need more than that. You talk...

HANNITY: Really?

KUTTNER: Yes. You talk about the average person about their insincerity of health care.

HANNITY: So you want the government to take care of all our problems?

KUTTNER: Well, the secretary in the treasury, Mr. Paulson, apparently does when it comes to bailing out Wall Street.

HANNITY: The same government that bankrupted Social Security? The same government that bankrupted Medicare? It's going bankrupt.

KUTTNER: Social Security is in much better shape than Citigroup or Morgan Stanley or -- if most of the banks on Wall Street were in as good a shape as Social Security, this country would be in great shape.

HANNITY: You're dreaming.

KUTTNER: The election is going to turn on whether pocketbook issues...


HANNITY: That I agree with. We also need to drill, and he's wrong on that.

Hannity is the the lowest of the low in AM right wing shock jocks, pure trash that spews hate and discontent toward the opposite side. He appears to have no scrupples, plays the Mom, Apple pie, Flag, and self righteous con game. What a piece of trash, my opinion(an millions of others). Republican supporters of the crap this individual puts out around the clock, get a life. said...

In my view one and all should browse on this.
