What is a mouse to do? The Nittany Turkey is watching the DNC on Fox News, so I have no choice but to endure some of the antics of the Fox commentators. Mind you, I enjoy many, if not most, of them. But one in particular, Sean Hannity, gets on my nerves. This is for you, Sean Hannity.
Your repetition of stupid rhetorical ploys grates on my furry little rodent ass. You have done it for years on your radio program and you’re doing it now in your convention coverage. When you repeatedly ask Democrats why Obama won’t talk about raising taxes, why Obama won’t talk about opposing the surge in Iraq, and why Obama won’t talk about having called Iran a small nation of little consequence to the U.S., I want to throw the Nittany Turkey’s stupid mousetrap right at the screen. But I can’t lest I be detected and snared by the foul fowl.
Doyou think you interviewees and his audience are all rodent brains? Your favorite Mus musculus is insulted by this sophomoric drivel. What is Obama going to do? Blow his campaign by exposing his flaws? Would you ask a corporate CEO to conduct an advertising campaign stating that he raised prices, fired a whole slew of employees, and got a bunch of tax breaks through nefarious lobbying? That company wouldn’t sell rodent turd with an ad like that. Furthermore, you wouldn’t ask the CEO that question.
Listen, Mr. Hannity. This is a mere mouse brain coming at you from under The Nittany Turkey’s sofa. This acceptance speech is all about advertising Obama’s wares, and he’s not—repeat, NOT—going to mention, let alone emphasize, his missteps and misstatements. And we, as your audience, don’t think it is cute to keep harping on the notion that Obama won’t do it. So, stop this stupid goading.
For the most part, you and I are on the same page. Play hardball, Hannity, but do not underestimate the intelligence of your audience.
