Hannity Creates Rival Countdown Clock

With reporters declaring that yesterday's Bush Iraq speech was "the most important speech in the president's career," Fox News' Sean Hannity reminded people that the opposition Democratic party has to put foward an alternative view as well. According to TV Newser:

Throughout MSNBC's day of "Iraq: What's Next?" coverage, a countdown clock appeared in the lower right corner of the screen, ticking down to President Bush's speech. So at the top of a special 10pm edition of Hannity & Colmes, FNC's Sean Hannity placed his own clock on the screen, titled "What's Their Plan?" He said:

"The left wing media spent most of the day counting the hours to which they called the most important speech in the president's career. We will count the time since the president's speech and and wait for a Democratic alternative." He added: "Our clock is officially clicking on the Democratic leadership and their rhetoric."

The clock stayed up for about three minutes, and a banner asking "Where Are The Democrats?" stayed on for a while longer. The Newshounds are outraged...
