It seems to have started off innocently enough. Fox News host Sean Hannity doesn’t shy away from controversy, but there doesn’t seem to be anything in his lament about the lack of contemporary role models for children that would ruffle any feathers. Was singer Ryan Adams secretly hoping to be nominated?

Provocative stuff there. The last we heard from Ryan Adams he was chasing down either a UFO or balloons over Sunset Boulevard, so please, tell us more about seeing reality, perhaps as a guest on Hannity’s TV show.

And if we wanted to see a liberal tweet incoherent insults followed by dopey emoticons, we’d follow Jim Carrey.

The Ryan Adams on “Hannity”? Ratings gold!
