This should come as no surprise, the corporate lackeys on FAUX news can scream and wail and spout all kinds of disinformation, but if challenged to a public debate, their tails go between their legs and they hide under their desks.

Oh yeah, one blowhard yelling at another blowhard. I'm sure that would be a great debate. Can't we just go ahead and be spared?

The only way Ed can be seen by anyone is to appear on a Fox show. LOL

I guess I am old. I remember the days when we used to argue the points of intellectuals such as Friedman and Galbraith. Who would really give a damn who won a debate between the idiots Hannity and Schultz?

My toaster just challenged my can opener to a debate.

Hannity isn't exactly the sharpest too in the shed among conservatives.

Ed debating Sean would only benefit Ed even if he makes a poor showing in a debate. Ed's TV ratings are in the toilet. He wishes he had Sean's ratings numbers. If Sean agreed to his debate challenge, Ed would get a ratings boost from people tuning into his show just to see who he is and what he's like. They may continue to tune in after the debate to see how he'll react to the debate. But then his ratings will either go back down to where they were before or lower. In the TV talk shows, ratings is the points and Sean has more points than ed so why should he bother to give points to his competitor?

No one claimed he was but Fatboy Ed, is a hero to you 'bots who actually think he's smart. But Hannity is smart enough to not waste his time with a nobody like Fatboy Ed who's looking for an audience outside of you and dannyboy.

Exactly, even Ed and Sean are bright enough to understand that.
