, they're making an interesting point about Lamar Alexander's little tirade yesterday in which he warned President Obama is compiling an enemies' list. As we know, Fox News daily regurgitates GOP talking points. But now, it's the other way around, according to ChattahBox. Alexander moved his lips on the Senate floor and the crazy talk of Sean Hannity came out.
This was news to Pith. In a state of disbelief, we went to the Google machine to see if this could be true. Could our beloved Lamar sink so low that he's now merely a stooge of Hannity and Fox News? Sadly, we discovered this transcript
from Tuesday's Hannity show in which he interviews Liz Cheney and says all the stuff Alexander was saying the very next day in the Senate. We guess Lamar was watching his TV Tuesday night:
I think it's that and it's as I've been saying. I think it's almost like they've got their enemies list. For example, there has been a talk about in Congress, some senators, of legislative retribution against the insurance companies because they are against the health care plan. Similarly, they're against any critic. It seems to me, it's almost like an enemies list. Is that a fair description?
: Well, yes. I think that what you've got is a situation where there are a lot of folks around the president who, you know, grew up playing pretty rough politics in Chicago, for example. I think that there's a level of trying to bully people. I think they're also accustomed to -- they became accustomed to an environment where they just got a lot of adoration.
And they don't like to be challenged, and Fox News has sure been, you know, at the top of the list of those asking those tough questions.
: Right. All right, Liz. Good to see you. Thank you. Appreciate you being here.
You, too, Sean. Thanks a lot.
