Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was kicked off of Sean Hannity's Fox News show during a segment that started out about the sequester, but which devolved into six minutes of the two yelling at each other. Ellison called Hannity everything from  "the worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen" to "a shill for the Republican Party."
