Calling into Sean Hannity's radio show, Mark Levin said of the National Organization for Women: "It's not the National Organization of Liberal Women. It's the National Organization of Ugly Women." Moments later, after Hannity stated, "[a]pparently [Sen. Barack] Obama took a shot at me again," Levin responded, "Obama's obsessed with you. ... Maybe he's attracted to you."

On the September 4 broadcast of Sean Hannity's nationally syndicated radio show, syndicated radio host Mark Levin -- who had called into the show -- said of the National Organization for Women, "It's not the National Organization of Liberal Women. It's the National Organization of Ugly Women." Hannity replied, "Now, be nice." Moments later, after Hannity stated, "[a]pparently [Sen. Barack] Obama took a shot at me again. So I'm glad -- I guess obviously he's not too happy with the Stop Obama Express," Levin said, "Obama's obsessed with you." Hannity replied, "It's kind of weird, isn't it?" to which Levin said, "Maybe he's attracted to you."

As Media Matters for America has noted, on the September 3 broadcast of The War Room with Quinn & Rose, co-host Jim Quinn referred to the National Organization for Women as "the National Organization for Whores."

From the September 4 broadcast of ABC Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:

HANNITY: By the way, I have what has to be -- and I have warned you that these attacks are only, only going to get worse, although they're not going to work and it's all going to backfire. And this has got to be the most hysterical reaction to Sarah Palin's home-run speech. Get this. The National Organization of Liberal Women is charging that Sarah Palin -- now, you better sit down for this -- Sarah Palin is really a man.

I'm -- this report in the Politico, spokesman for the National Organization for Women, "noting Palin's opposition to abortion rights and" her "support of other parts of the social conservative agenda," told the Politico, quote, "She's more a conservative man than she is a woman on women's issues. Very disappointing."

So that's the official liberal feminist position. Sarah Palin is not a woman. She's a man. Now, folks, these people are just -- they're not connecting. You know, Gloria Steinem -- well, the only thing she shares with Hillary is a chromosome. You know, folks, fear has now literally taken over the Democratic Party. Someone needs to start -- you know what? There's Happy Housewives, they were quoted in The New York Times, we're going to have -- maybe we'll have them on tomorrow to counter this nonsense.

But anyway, let's get to our phones. I see Mark is in Washington, D.C. Uh-oh. Is this him? Is that --

LEVIN: Dr. Hannity?

HANNITY: Dr. Levin. Thank me. How am I?

LEVIN: It's not the National Organization of Liberal Women. It's the National Organization of Ugly Women.

HANNITY: Now, be nice.

LEVIN: Not only that --

HANNITY: Be nice.

LEVIN: -- if they think Sarah Palin is a man, these women definitely need to get out more. Nobody, nobody would even suggest that. I mean, she --

HANNITY: That's pretty vicious.

LEVIN: -- let me tell you something else. She does have more strength and more courage than many men I've seen, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden. So, that point, there's no -- by the way, where's Dick Morris?

[...]

HANNITY: And let me tell you something, Mark. And you were very consistent in this, in that you said that the vice-presidential choice was going to be very key for your support, and I know that -- I heard a little bit of your show yesterday. I can't listen as much as I want, obviously, because I'm here. But -- and you were slamming away.

They have tried to destroy this woman. They have assassinated her character. They have asked her harder questions about her 17-year-old daughter in five days than they have about Barack Apollo Obama in 19 months. Apparently Obama took a shot at me again. So I'm glad -- I guess obviously he's not too happy with the Stop Obama Express. He did it earlier today. We haven't gotten a copy of the audio yet.

LEVIN: Obama's obsessed with you.

HANNITY: It's kind of weird, isn't it?

LEVIN: Maybe he's attracted to you.

HANNITY: [laughs]
