Colbert Is Hannity's Pimp

With the recent findings from the NYC District Attorney that the videos created by wingnut hero James O'Keefe, in an attempt to "sting" ACORN, were "heavily edited" with the "intent to deceive," Stephen Colbert decided to use O'Keefe's dishonest tactics in an interview with Sean Hannity. The following video shows Colbert (as a pimp, naturally) interviewing Hannity, where he talks about being a prostitute and needing "condoms and hooker boots." Since everyone on the right took O'Keefe at his word, they have no choice except to believe that Sean Hannity is a male prostitute. Not a stretch for me to believe, actually.

The funny thing is that Colbert, despite being a satirist, is probably about the same caliber of a journalist as those on the left that actually CLAIM to be so.

Except he gets to you right wingers because he so effortlessly mimics and mocks a typical conservative media personality/pundit/talk show host.

But, the larger point of the piece - that the so called ACORN sting was a lie aided by creative editing - has not been challenged or refuted by any of O'Keefe's former supporters. I find that pretty interesting.

Haven't heard anything about it, but I find it incredibly hard to believe how the long minutes of un-spliced tape can be anything but an indictment against a corrupt and partisan organization.

Sounds like the left is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic to me.
