Ohio Republican Senator George Voinovich just made quite a disturbing spectacle of himself on the Sean Hannity radio show.
Voinovich hadn't read the immigration bill, hadn't read the Heritage Foundation analysis, was unaware that Senator Hutchinson's amendment hadn't passed today, and for good measure was vaguely supportive of the return of the Fairness Doctrine.
Sean attempted to question Voinovich about specific aspects of the immigration bill and what the costs to taxpayers will be if the bill passes, but the Senator plainly had no facts to back his position, and instead ranted about people trying to "intimidate" him.
Although Sean offered to keep Voinovich on the entire hour to afford him time to defend his point of view, Voinovich ended the conversation by hanging up on Sean, saying he hoped they could discuss another subject more "rationally" in future.
Voinovich was, plain and simple, arrogant, uninformed, and angry about being questioned by the American people. It's quite embarrassing to me as a Republican that he is a representative of my party.
Nasty, Brutish & Short live-blogged the conversation as it occurred (subject link).
Free Republic also had a live thread on the show. Hannity's website also has a brief thread.
Update: The interview reruns today at 2:30 Pacific Time/5:30 Eastern.
Further Update: Hot Air now has the story.
Late Update: WorldNetDaily on Voinovich's self-destruction today on the radio.
