I only have 2 million other better things to write about. But after 24 hours of waiting for someone else to unload on Sean Hannity, the Fox News host who defines political stooge, I have to say something. I held off when this GOP tool ran around on the Texas border in sunglasses and a baseball hat on backwards with Gov. Rick Perry. I even ignored the picture Hannity tweeted of him with his arm over a machine gun as he posed in a boat on the Rio Grande alongside Perry -- who we now know is really an intellectual giant because he has glasses with thick rims.

No one can carry water for the GOP and suck up to conservatives like Sean Hannity. And Monday night, he was at the top of his game "interviewing" the GOP's hottest candidate, Michele Bachmann, while mending the 24-hour rift between her and Fox News. Mending the rift that started on "Fox News Sunday" when Wallace asked the candidate if she was a "flake" was the real business of the conversation that took place during the first 15 minutes of "Hannity" Monday. The host also, though, had to lob a few softballs her way so she could try and explain away -- or at least minimize --  the incredible gaffe of describing Waterloo, Iowa, earlier Monday as the home of the late movie star John Wayne, when it was really the home of John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer.

In stepping down last week as a speaker at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine commencement, Dr. Ben Carson again took on the role of media/culture critic and martyr to "political correctness. " "Someday in the future, it is my hope and prayer that the emphasis on political correctness will decrease and we will start emphasizing rational discussion of differences so we can actually resolve problems and chart a course that is inclusive of everyone," he wrote to Hopkins Medicine Dean and CEO Dr. Paul B. Rothman.

What do swimming pigs and pregnant cows have in common with conservative talk show host Sean Hannity? Possibly not that much - but all will be on hand at this year's Maryland State Fair. This year's schedule promises a clutch of quirky and surprising events - most tied to agriculture but others rooted in popular culture. "In the traditional fair, you think about games and rides and food," said Andy Cashman, a fair organizer. "I think people come and expect to see some neat and different ideas."

It was a delight to see Dr. Ben Carson on The Sun's front page recently ("Controversial address vaults Hopkins' Carson into political arena," Feb. 18), and it was a stark contrast to the vitriolic online piece earlier by TV critic David Zurawik ("Hopkins' Dr. Benjamin Carson anointed new Fox darling of the right on Hannity," Feb. 16). Mr. Zurawik's hatred for Fox News came through loud and clear. He clearly was using Dr. Carson as a conduit to disparage Fox. No wonder he was critical of the way President Barack Obama appeared in a film shown on Sean Hannity's program Friday evening.

  I have been tracking the dance Johns Hopkins nuerosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson has been doing with Fox News since his appearance last month at The National Prayer Breakfast. You can see my concerns about the relationship here . But Tuesday night, Dr. Carson went to a place on Sean Hannity's show that surprised even me. And I did not think anything done on such a partisan show could shock me after years of being appalled by Hannity's shamelss shilling for right-wing causes and candidates.

HE SAYS "Haven't we all made mistakes?" - Jilted groom John Mason on Fox News Of course, we have. We're on your side, buddy. I mean, what groom hasn't received a phone call from his fiancee saying she's been abducted to Albuquerque, N.M., and, by the way, our big fat wedding on Saturday looks very iffy? Every day in this country, brides get cold feet. They pre-purchase a Greyhound bus ticket, cut their hair, tell their fiance they're going out for a jog, place a phony 911 call, are picked up by police 1,400 miles away and then face possible criminal charges, or worse, Fox News interviews.

In a letter sent to the Johns Hopkins Medical community Friday afternoon, Faculty Dean and CEO Dr. Paul Rothman labeled Dr. Ben Carson's comments on gay marriage "hurtful" and "offensive. " Rothman's letter is a turning point in what has been two weeks of a fierce culture-wars debate in the media about Carson. It shows that it wasn't only liberal opponents who were offended, as Carson, Fox news and conservative commentators have consistently contended. Carson's offensive comments were made in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News on March 26 when the partisan host asked Carson for his views on gay marriage.

I am not among the many who are shocked that Ben Carson, the brilliant and widely admired neurosurgeon based at Johns Hopkins Hospital, would emerge as a hero of the political right and Sean Hannity's new best friend. That Carson would stoop to making (and later sort of apologizing for) homophobic remarks on Hannity's national television show - associating gays with pedophiles and people who have sex with animals - didn't surprise me, either. I know: Here's a man who separated conjoined twins, improved and saved the lives of countless children, established a scholars program that has benefited hundreds of young people, wrote inspirational books and gave countless motivational speeches.

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, a GOP candidate for president, refused to back down from Fox News' Sean Hannity on the issue of legalizing marijuana last night.  In a 20-minute segment on Hannity's show, Johnson fared relatively well in an interview with the host who oscillated between complimentary stances and antagonistic stances.  Hannity called Johnson a "lesser known" candidate who is a "big underdog," but was generally hospitable...
