As conservative TV hosts raced to distance themselves from their new folk hero Cliven Bundy, after Bundy began wondering if slavery wasn’t better for “the negroes,” Stephen Colbert made sure the door hit them on the way out — particularly Fox News Channel‘s Sean Hannity. Bundy became a TV talker over the past couple weeks for having grazed cattle on federal land for decades and clocking a reported $1 million in unpaid grazing fees (Bundy says he doesn’t recognize the U.S. government as even existing). “Man, Hannity ate up that story so hard Bundy should have charged him grazing fees,” Colbert said on his show last night — and more where that came from. (Hannity yesterday called Bundy’s comments “beyond repugnant.”) Watch Colbert here, followed by Hannity on his FNC show last night:
