Apparently Sarah Palin was not the ONLY loser from the Republican's 2008 ticket to be interviewed by Sean Hannity last night. He also interviewed crusty old bastard john McCain.
However I don't think things went as Hannity had imagined that they would go. Take a look.
Courtesy of Mediaite:
“How is it that Sean Hannity and a few others of us out here predicted with pinpoint accuracy that the Muslim Brotherhood would be in charge in Egypt?” Hannity asked the senator. “Their first task when they took over the Parliament was to declare Israel, our closest ally, their enemy.”
“How is it that the administration with all their intelligence and the CIA — how is it that they didn’t see this coming?” he asked McCain of both Egypt and Libya, before disputing the notion that the Libyans had a free election: “They kept telling the American people, this is democracy. I don’t view the Muslim Brotherhood as democracy. They want Sharia law implemented now.”
“That’s not clear that that’s true,” McCain responded before accusing Fox of repeating a false claim about the Libyan elections:
"It was you and people on Fox that said in Libya, “We didn’t know who they were and let’s not help these people.” They had an election and they elected moderates. They rejected Islamists. And yes, there are al-Qaeda factors and there are extremists in Libya today, but the Libyan people are friends of ours, and they support us, and they support democracy. So you were wrong about Libya."
“I don’t think I was wrong about Libya at all,” Hannity shot back.
“I know you were,” McCain responded. “They had a free and fair election, and a democratic non-Islamic government was elected. So you were wrong.”
“I was not,” Hannity said. “They didn’t think the Muslim Brotherhood would take over? This is a known terror organization. We say we are fighting a war on terror but we are apologizing, our government, to Egypt after they raid our embassy and rip our flag down?”
“Frankly, Senator, I would think you are with me on this,” the conservative host added.
“I am not taking the side of the administration,” McCain pushed back. “I am saying that the largest nation in the Arab world is something we have to carefully calibrate our actions with.”
You know what I am so stunned that I literally do not have anything smart ass to say about this.
I don't EVER get the chance to say this anymore, but good for your Senator McCain!
Now while we have you in a combative mood, could you tell us what you REALLY think of that crazy lady you plucked out of the wilds of Wasilla? Come on! We know you want to!
P.S. By he way, whether he wanted to or not, McCain WAS essentially "taking the side of the administration." Simply because he was telling the truth.
