Hannity's Liberty Tree

This is hilarious and a little scary.

I seriously don't believe that Hannity is provoking any lynchings, but it certainly can be implied. The other thing is this: suddenly the far-right is all about liberty? Ask Sean Hannity if he supports liberty for same-sex couples. No one cheerlead the unprecedented expansion of unitary executive power under Bush and Cheney more than Hannity. I seem to recall the Republicans, and especially the wingnut right, going around saying things like:

"Our civil liberties are worthless if we are dead! If you are dead and pushing up daisies, if you're sucking dirt inside a casket, do you know what your civil liberties are worth? Zilch, zero, nada."
