I only hear Hannity on talk radio when I'm in the states most summers and the creepiest thing about him (besides absoulutely everything he stands for in general) is the way his callers at the beginning of each call says: "Hello Sean, Thank you for your service to our country..."

What service?



Maybe they have to agree to say that in order to be allowed in the air. I wouldn't put it past this mutant.

I think Tom needs to institute this policy as soon as possible. Like, starting TONIGHT.
I'm warning you with peace and love.

I think he already tried while he was stuck in the Patriot Zone... But it didn't catch on.

Well that settles it.

Did anyone in the audience react? Laffs? 'F you!'?


Honestly, the theater wasn't that full, so I didn't get any reactions. 

As for entertainment value I think Glenn Beck also has none.

Apparently Beck and Bill O'Reilly are doing something in limited mostly midwest release called 'The Bold And Fresh Tour'.

I think they are hyping it a bit less due to the Christmas Sweater embarrassment.

That's a shame, because I thought after Sea Change he was really on the way to being a solid, mature musician.

Not many people know this, but did you know that Bill O'Reilly actually played tambourine on the song "Sexx Laws"?

Sean Hannity looks like Chuck Woolery, the game show host, after going through a black hole of hell than back. Kinda like the movie Event Horizon.

I have a very, very minor "in" with Chuck Woolery, the only celebrity of any stature with whom I have such a thing.  I'm savin' that one, though.

O'Reilly has been supplanted by the lunatic Glenn Beck, and I predict within a few years, perhaps when Bill's current contract runs out, Glenn Beck will have his time slot.  But Bill is still a voice, albeit the elder stateman's voice who's more interested in selling "Bold, Fresh" than beating down the pablum pukers like he used to.

It's Hannity that's the odd douche bag out.  Lacking the talent of the other two, and without his straight man Colmes (he didn't replace him with Noam Chomsky as I suggested), his show has become a souless, repetitious infomercial.  I suspect he himself knows it's tiresome, but he doesn't have the skillset to do anything about it.

I haven't seen or heard anything from or about Hannity in months, but this seems right on to me.  What, exactly, is Sean Hannity good at?  He's not "funny" like Rush Limbaugh, or all "COME ON!" like Bill O'Reilly or stark, raving mad maybe kill himself and other people on the air like Glenn Beck.

What is he supposed to be?  I don't think "meathead" is much of a schtick, even for the typical viewers of such programs.
