When You've Lost Brent Bozell...

While he will undoubtedly still sweep Michael Reagan's "The Reagan Award For Excellence In Reaganing",  Sean Hannity has now been told to not bother showing up at Brent Bozell's shitty award show.
Sean Hannity will no longer receive Buckley Award after controversy

Fox News Channel star anchor Sean Hannity will no longer receive the conservative Media Research Center's William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence at its September 21 gala, sources familiar with the situation tell CNN.

Buckley, the founder of the National Review, who died in 2008, was hailed in his day as "arguably the most important public intellectual in the United States." Giving an award in his name to Hannity -- a pugnacious talk radio host who has shared conspiracy theories on his popular cable news show -- had caused hand wringing among some conservatives.

It also caused distress among Buckley's family -- in particular his only child, best-selling author Christopher Buckley.

A source familiar with the situation tells CNN that Christopher Buckley "expressed great dismay" at the announcement that the award would go to Hannity, who has spent a great deal of time insulting conservative intellectuals on Twitter, particularly since he became a strong supporter of Donald Trump.

Sources tell CNN that the MRC leadership discussed ways to allow Hannity to save face by acting as if a scheduling conflict would prevent him from accepting the award.

"It's my understanding there was a scheduling conflict," Ryan Moy, a spokesman for the MRC, told CNN...

On the other hand, word on the street is that Sean is also still in the running for the "Paste-Pot Pete Award For Excellence In Lame Comic Book Super Villainy"  

So he's got that going for him.

If he hadn't picked such a ridonkulous street name to start under, and if he didn't insist on punching above his weight class, I say Pete Petruski actually could've been a contender.

...ridonkulous? punching above his weight class? I guess he's not that different to Foetus Boy after all.

So he's got that going for him.

Which is nice.

You are a great mind and a great wit. Also superb photoshopping. Keep up the good fight.

Yeah, the bit about Foetus Boy was not actually relevant. Would you believe I actually forgot which blithering blivet named Sean we were talking about?
