Sean Hannity lost control of himself and his show on Tuesday night, after co-host Alan Colmes compared John Edwards' infidelity to John McCain's affair. Usually, the two hosts of "Hannity & Colmes" take turns questioning guests and carefully avoid debating each other, but Hannity made a rare departure to repeatedly yell that McCain's affair was somehow acceptable because it occurred after he was tortured for five and a half years in Vietnam. This clip does not take off until about 2:55, but then it gets feisty and weird in a hurry.Howie P.S.: Like on MSNBC, John McCain's marital problems are "off the table" on FAUX News. For you "hard news" lovers, here's "McCain foreign policy adviser paid to lobby on Georgia's behalf." Using closed-caption data, Jed Lewison has been tracking the coverage of the Edwards' story and makes this observation:
Interestingly, since Colmes destroyed the FOX talkers, the MSM has nearly stopped talking about Edwards.
