I knew that day we would yearn for the moment in our political discourse when we discussed the serious issues, like birth control and the contents of Rush Limbaugh's heart. That day has come.
Last night on Sean Hannity, the world witnessed the release of the fabled that video would prove once and for all that Barack Obama is a Marxist-Leninist, a Black Nationalist, a kill-whitey-and-redistribute-his-wealth Liberation Theologian whose radical views have been kept hidden with the help of a complicit liberal media. Most of the tape had already been posted at Buzzfeed by Andrew Kacyznski and the footage turned out to be anodyne shots of then Harvard Law student Barack Obama speaking at a protest urging the hiring of more diverse faculty.
But what that version of the video failed to show was a terrorist embrace, more commonly known as a hug, between Obama and professor Derrick Bell, a Critical Race Theory scholar and proponent of affirmative action…
Sean Hannity began the segment showing the videos released this morning and explaining the context, before showing [professor Charles Ogletree] admitting to intentionally editing and then covering up the shot of President Obama hugging Professor Derrick Bell. "I hid this during the 2008 campaign — I don't care if they find it now!” Ogletree tells the audience to laughter, as he plays the clip.
As implied by Hannity, when you hug someone, you also embrace all their views, forever. And as someone born in the USSR, I can authoritatively confirm that hugging is responsible for 80% of all person-to-person transmission of communist ideology. This is a serious issue. From Stalin to Mao to Pol Pot, some of history's greatest monsters have hugged. It's past time we tamped down the war on drugs and focus on what really matters: the war on hugs.

Do you ever have one of those days when you mean to invite the world's most-wanted terrorist over to the White House for a beer summit but instead order a SEAL team to shoot him dead?
I hate it when that happens. As Fox News's Sean Hannity explained — shortly after breaking into Rush Limbaugh's drug stash apparently – Barack Obama had exactly that kind of experience, as the raid against bin Laden "wouldn't have happened if [Obama] had his way, and that can be proven, as well, on tape."
One wonders how the current Republican contenders would have dealt with bin Laden. Ron Paul remembers a time before Congress ruined everything with "standing armies" and "special forces" when letters of marque and reprisal and fabulous, fabulous prizes were all we needed to fight bad guys. Newt Gingrich? Lectures on secular-Islamic fundamentalism broadcast through drone-based loudspeakers throughout the Af-Pak region would have driven bin Laden to suicide long ago. And I think Rick Santorum is okay with how things went down, provided no gay solider was there to gay up the killing with his gayness.
As for what really transpired, Hannity is obviously the first person the president confides in, so who are we to doubt his contention that Obama can't do anything right? Even when his policy-goal is a relatively modest of one "don't hunt down an infamous mass murderer who has evaded detection for a decade," he still manages to screw it up and kill the guy.

Speaking before a diverse crowd of different kinds of white people during a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa, Rick Santorum waxed Nixonian on the importance of individual effort, fiscal restraint, and the problem of too many black people receiving public benefits in 91.3% white Iowa…
Answering a question about foreign influence on the U.S. economy, the former Pennsylvania senator went on to discuss the American entitlement system – which he argued is being used to politically exploit its beneficiaries.
"It just keeps expanding — I was in Indianola a few months ago and I was talking to someone who works in the department of public welfare here, and she told me that the state of Iowa is going to get fined if they don't sign up more people under the Medicaid program," Santorum said. "They're just pushing harder and harder to get more and more of you dependent upon them so they can get your vote. That's what the bottom line is."
He added: "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."
"Right," responded one audience member, as another woman can be seen nodding.
I tend to to be indulgent of Santorum's outbursts. It's not so much that he's racist — he even went on Hannity to condemn "all racism" and explain that "I haven’t heard" the comment that came out of his own mouth. It's that he suffers from an especially severe case of Right Wing Tourette's Syndrome. He was going to actually answer the question about foreign influence on the American economy, but his brain is going "BLACK PEOPLE, PENISBUTTSEX, CENTRAL AMERICAN ISLAMO-SOCIALISM!" and he has to pick the phonic tic most appropriate to the situation.
Alternatively, maybe Santorum was talking about The Blacks of Iowa, a typical farm family that receives significantly more in federal spending than it send to Washington in tax payments. As a whole Iowa, takes in 10% more in federal outlays than it delivers in revenues, compared to the approximately 60 cents on the dollar expended on New Jersey. It's about time someone spoke up about this agriculture subsidy welfare queens.
