From an August 26 WorldNetDaily "exclusive commentary" by WND founder, editor, and CEO Joseph Farah:
He will need a lot of encouragement to step into this breach.
So that is what I am offering here.
I like Sean Hannity.
I respect Sean Hannity.
He's a righteous man.
He has all the ingredients of a good leader -- a great leader.
And America is very much in need of a great leader.
I hope other Americans will join me in offering him encouragement to consider this mission - and consider it very seriously.
Farah added: "I could get excited about a Sean Hannity candidacy. I could get excited about a Sean Hannity presidency. I even hear he has a birth certificate."
As Media Matters for America has noted, WND and Farah have repeatedly pushed the conspiracy theory that Obama does not have a valid birth certificate and was born in Kenya. Hannity himself has advanced and defended birth certificate theories.
