Anthony Weiner, if you didn't want to be on Fox, then you shouldn't have accepted their eleventy-third offer. And if you've been even semi-conscious for the past decade and had some idea of the lunacy you'd be up against, then maybe you'd have realized what a colossal waste of time this was.
Seriously, when Sean Hannity spends a good part of the first four minutes of an eight minute segment asking if the rumors are true that Weiner "hates me," what's the point?
And when Weiner asks, "What am I, a potted plant?" then it doesn't take a mental giant to see that the interview is going straight downhill from there...
...including the part where Hannity deluded himself into thinking he had the upper hand by taunting:
"You're auditioning for MSNBC. You want Chris Matthews job! I can tell! You want to ask the questions! You wanna be Chris Matthews! You never shut up like Chris Matthews, either!"
To which Weiner retorted as any self-respecting toddler would:
"YOU always have patsies on!... Fox apparently has much lower standards!"
That little back and forth took up most of the final four minutes.
Moral of the story: Don't go on Fox unless you're prepared to be insulted, baited, and dismissed as nothing more than a novelty act. And if you still insist on crossing onto Hannity's turf, then don't stoop to his infantile behavior.
We're long overdue for our quarterly fundraiser, mainly because we are so reluctant to have our hands out, but, as Nickelodeon used to say, "A kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do."
So if you are able, if you are so inclined, please donate. I'm currently using a just barely hanging on 10 y/o CRT monitor that is about to keel over. Gotta have the monitor to get the posts up! Site maintenance, and every day expenses add up and we can't do this without your help.
Thank you ahead of time for your consistent kindness and generosity. Without you, there would be no us.
