they weren't drawing mustaches on him

it's a vid of clips of sean's own words, much like sean plays on his shows (Minus the obscene commentary).

they didn't mockingly laugh at him like glenn beck did to debra medina when he snowballed her on 9/11.

it wasn't even a libertarian, ron paul, or other such entity that put the vid up. it was mediamatters4america. how is that going reflect badly on "us"??

pointing out hypocrisy is a great way to change peoples mind. something rush said made me start questioning things. I came from the neocon crowd too and would have once said I was a ditto head. I had remembered, and agreed with him when he was blaming clinton for things 4 years into the bush reign. And then not 2 months into Obama's reign rush is yelling about how this is "obama's economy". Now I certianly wasn't an obama fan, I knew that, but it was also clear to me that the crash did actually happen before he took office. I couldn't ignore that hypocrisy and remember that as a point that I started looking elsewhere for answers. 2 months later I saw a clip on ron paul and shortly after stumbled on to the dp.

From your comment you say

From your comment you say that you figured out Rush's hypocrisy for yourself, started looking elsewhere for answers, and later saw a clip on Ron Paul (a Republican). That is a little different path than watching a Media Matters ("left wing") clip that points out the hypocrisy of a "right wing" talk show guy. The difference in the SOURCE of the information matters to many people who are still locked into the left vs. right paradigm. Ultimately, like your own history shows, it's a person's own willingness to think it out that ultimately helps them come to their senses, and if you want to help their process of thinking it through, find a way for them to best hear you out.

The commenter that you're replying to seems to be saying that it's people who currently listen to Hannity that she wants to be welcoming to, not welcoming to Hannity himself. Something called wisdom is what is hugely lacking in how we attempt to persuade people. It IS possible to point out the obvious contradictions without ridiculing someone or using another hypocrite's video that shows the hypocrisy.

If Media Matters isn't scrutinizing Obama the way it did Bush, then I wish there could be made a video showing the hypocrisy of Media Matters.

will they ever learn?

it doesn't suprise me but it still bothers me people fall for this two party sham. Good video, haven't seen it thanks.
