On Fox News last Wednesday, while discussing The Hill newspaper’s annual 50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill list, host Sean Hannity said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) “ranks in at number four” but complained that there are others “who are far more deserving” than her. The problem, however, as MSNBC host Dan Abrams pointed out last night, is that Pelosi was number four on last year’s list and is not included in the 2008 edition. Abrams asks: “But why should that stop Hannity from insulting her again?”:
ABRAMS: Next up — Fox’s Sean Hannity really wanted to insult Speaker Nancy Pelosi last night. He talked about “The Hill” newspaper’s 2008 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill list.
HANNITY: Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi—Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi ranks in at number four. Several aides, by the way, who are far more deserving than Nancy Pelosi. This is supposed to be the 50 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill.
ABRAMS: The problem—Nancy Pelosi isn’t on the list this year. She was on last year’s list, but why should that stop Hannity from insulting her again?
