Did Hanity & Colmes Get HoodWinked?

DID FOX GET HOODWINKED?

WND BACKROOM, 5/11/02

Last week, according to a WorldNetDaily reader, Fox News Channel's "Hannity and Colmes" hosted a debate about Palestinian students supposedly being banned from the UC Berkeley campus. One student identified himself as Mordechai Ettinger, who wore a keffiyah a la Yasser Arafat and claimed to be from a campus group, "Jews For Freedom in Palestine." He told Sean Hannity his reason for attending Berkeley was "to keep the '60s free speech movement alive."

Just a few little problems with all that, according to our intrepid reader:

1. Mordechai Ettinger is not a student at UC Berkeley and never was. He lives in San Francisco and comes on campus as what we used to call an "outside agitator."

2. There is no campus group, "Jews For Freedom In Palestine."

****************************************************

JOKE OF THE DAY

Osama bin Laden finally gets nailed and makes his way to the Pearly Gates. There he is greeted by George Washington.

"How dare you attack the nation I helped conceive!" yells Washington, slapping Osama in the face.

Patrick Henry comes up from behind: "You wanted to end the Americans' liberty, so they gave you death!" Henry punches Osama on the nose.

James Madison comes up next, and says, "This is why I allowed the federal government to provide for the common defense!" He drops a large weight on Osama's knee.

Osama is subject to similar beatings from John Randolph of Roanoke, James Monroe, and 65 other people who have the same love for liberty and America.

As he writhes on the ground, Thomas Jefferson picks him up to hurl him back toward the gate where he is to be judged.

As Osama awaits his journey to his final very hot destination, he screams, "This is not what I was promised!"

An angel replies, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you. What did you think I said?"

I saw this program and Mordechai is an impish little fellow who is well-trained in the radical leftist anarchist Bezerleley idiology.

I don't think Hannity & Colmes care who Mordecai Ettinger is: the only question is, will it make good TV?

idiology

I agree: this seems to be a good name for the study of idiots. Should be a required course at Berkeley.

To be true... it is 7.2 toothless Persians. You know... since Islam is the "religion of pieces".

I saw that program and "female impersonator" would be a better description of this "person."
