Wait, I forgot Hannity is a lying scaredy cat.

But not all Conservative talk show hosts are.

“Mancow” Muller followed through on his pledge to be waterboarded, and the result?

He lasted all of 6 seconds, and now believes that waterboarding IS torture:

And in a related story, Keith Olbermann who had offered $1,000 to charity for every second Sean Hannity withstood waterboarding donated a nice bundle to Mancow’s service related charity: Veterans Of Valor

Is it any wonder why both fundamentalism and conservatism are losing so much ground with the general populace?

As I’ve previously commented, you just can’t go around bullshitting your way through life anymore, no matter if you’re Dick Cheney, or in this case, Liberty University. You will get called out on your lies and hypocrisy.

People are going to get a big wiff of your stench when you do something majorly stupid, and probably long before they’ve heard whatever message you were trying to get our there in the first place.

Conservative university bans Democratic club

Liberty University — the largest evangelical university in the world — has revoked its recognition of the campus Democratic Party club. In their explanation, the university said they were “unable to lend support to a club whose parent organization stands against the moral principles held by” the school.

Liberty’s vice president of student affairs Mark Hine penned an email to the group’s chief, saying the club must immediately desist from using the university’s name, holding meetings on campus or advertising events — and that violations could, if frequent, result in expulsion.

“We are in no way attempting to stifle free speech,” Hine quipped when asked about the email on Thursday by the Lynchburg News and Advance. “We looked at each club and organization to determine where it stood and unfortunately this one kind of got in the sights of policy, if you will.”

Diaz said that the college’s vice president had actually complimented the club last year for being a faith-based organization working within the Democratic party. Ironically, the group opposes abortion and same-sex marriage — but that wasn’t enough for Liberty University officials.

The group’s staff adviser, Maria Childress, told the paper, “His bottom line was, ‘You can’t be a Democrat and be a Christian and be a university representative.’”

The university was founded in 1971 by evangelical scion Jerry Falwell, who until his death in 2007 was a popular face on political talk shows.
