Blogenfreude at Agitprop checking in with the outrage of the day. Just when I was settling in for another Vitter hooker revelation (now with real hookers!), I come across yet another WTF.

Do you know how some right wing patriots will be celebrating the deaths of thousands of their fellow citizens? That's right—a country music concert featuring Sean Hannity! But it gets worse:

First, [Hannity will] host his daily WABC (770 AM) show at the park, 3-6 p.m., then he starts the concert, a wildly popular event that also features music by Lee Greenwood and LeAnn Rimes between remarks by Oliver North, Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Ann Coulter, Jon Voight, Newt Gingrich, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and WABC hosts Mark Levin, Curtis Sliwa and Bob Grant.
Oliver North, a convicted felon? Ann Coulter, polemicist and plagiarizer? Holy Joe Lieberman? Ghouliani?

Tom Lehrer once remarked that irony died when Henry Kissinger got the Nobel Peace Prize. If it didn't, this gathering of authoritarians and warmongers, getting off on what should be a day for sober reflection, surely kills it off for good.
