I guess that we have to hand it to Sean Hannity.  Hannity has now reduced all of the right-wing/Republican philosophy so neatly that a 5 year-old would be able to understand it.  

On his Fixed News show yesterday, Hannity explains everything we needed to know about right-wing/Republican values so well, that now, gee, could it be that now I even get it.  And of course, he says that President Barrack Obama is just ruining everything.

Hannity’s show now has a feature, called the Liberty Tree.  The original Liberty Tree, according to the segment, had been a place where our founding fathers met to air out the grievances of the time.  The original tree had had been destroyed by a hurricane, and eventually replanted with a new tree.  

And lo and behold, Fixed News and Hannity have just added  a special meaning meaning of thier own to it.  I mean, good grief.  Really?  The second link below is the link to the original Hannity Liberty Tree segment, which is very bizarre and somewhat laughable.  

But it gets even better with Steven Colbert’s response to Hannity’s Liberty Tree segment.  Ready for a few good laughs.  Click on link and enjoy. (Sorry, couldn’t get the clips to embed)

And as mention above, below is the original Fixed News Hannity segment.  Notice the patriotic music and the part about "hanging two tax collectors from the Liberty Tree."

See, I told you it that ight-wing/Republicanism would be so easy to understand that a 5 year-old would get it.  

So this is just a short diary for some laughs.  We deserve it.  Enjoy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
