The Sean Hannity Circus: Bill Cunningham ‘unhinged’

It appears that Sean Hannity has lost total control of his television program as demonstrated Thursday. The topic for the segment was on Attorney General Eric Holder and a petition to oust him from office over allegations that he lied under oath before Congress.

Hannity’s guest’s were regulars, Tamara Holder, the left leaning attorney and Fox News contributor, and Bill Cunningham, the attorney turned bomb-throwing,  right-wing,  radio shock-jock from Cincinnati.

Cunningham, well known for being obnoxious and talking over people, pointed fingers at Ms. Holder throughout the segment, which led to a slew of name calling and other unacceptable comments, which did nothing to enhance the debate.

Here are some examples of the back-and-forth:

“I really hope that when you speak to a judge, you don’t point your finger in their face the entire time,” replied Holder. “Your finger does not prove your point,” she said, pointing back at Cunningham, who apparently found this extremely provoking.

“Whose finger’s in my face right now?” he protested.

“Mine, because I’m telling you to shut up,” said Holder.

“Wait a minute, you shut up,” Cunningham sniped. “Know your role and shut your mouth.”

“My role as a woman?” asked Holder.

“Yeah, yeah,” said Cunningham.

In addition, Cunningham repeatedly called Holder a “stooge” and towards the end of the segment that Hannity never got a grip on, “a liberal stooge and an excuse monger for the Obama administration”. There was also some name calling using the name of Bob Beckel and called Holder “judiciously challenged”.

At  one point, Cunningham asked Holder, “Are you going to cry?”

Apparently, Mr. Hannity doesn’t care about having a substantive debate about critical issues in our government, instead, he wants to run this circus he calls a talk show.

One thing about this segment, and tell me you weren’t thinking the same thing–Wouldn’t you love to see Mr. Cunningham try these antics with a man sitting two feet away?

Yea, you’d like to see that….
