In an interview with Charles Groddin on 4/22/09 Sean Hannity stated that he would be willing to be water boarded for charity. Last night, Keith Olbermann threw down the gauntlet and offered to pay $1,000 for every second Hannity was water boarded. This is leading many to ask the question, will Hannity be water boarded? The question I would raise is what’s the down side?
Hannity has the chance to prove his point on enhanced interrogation, expose the left as hypocrites, while supporting the troops all in a single act. No doubt Sean would raise serious bucks for charity from Olbermann and others if the challenge was taken. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama or at least Rahm Emmanuel would chip in a dime or two. A stunt like this would show very serious support for our troops, many who have suffered worse from the war. As well as show support for a technique that has helped save some of their lives.
Meanwhile, Olbermann and those of his ilk would be exposed as the haters they truly are. Olbermann explicitly wants video footage of the event as a condition of the charity. The reason for this is obvious. No doubt a video of Hannity being water boarded would provide hours of enjoyment for those who would rather see and degrade a well known conservative by water boarding for charity, than to use the technique on a psychopathic killer for the purpose of saving lives.
Yes, the duplicity of the far left is never ending. As Olbermann pointed out, water boarding is serious. So tell me who's sicker? The one who offers to be water boarded for charity, or the one who wants to pay and video tape it?
