Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda, Sean Hannity
Harper Paperbacks, 2010
Release date: March 30, 2010
From Amazon.com's Product Description:
"Barack Obama and his radical team of self-professed socialists, fringe activists, and others are trying to remake the American way of life. They have used their new Democratic majority to launch an alarming assault on our capitalist system—while abandoning the war on terror, undermining our national security, and weakening our position in the eyes of our enemies. The "candidate of change" is threat- ening to change our country irreparably, and for the worse—if we don't act to stop him now."

Sean Hannity, for all of you non-Americans, is the host of a daily radio call-in show and a nightly TV program on the Fox Network. Like others of his ilk* he is a Master of Shitting Bull. After reading the blurb from Amazon, any thinking person will know he is fucking nuts. And therein lays my problem.
Thinking people pay no attention to him, but the sorry fact is that idiots outnumber thinkers by 100 to 1. And millions of idiots believe his trash: “If it’s on radio and TV then it must be true!”
Worse, I truly believe that hate-mongers like Hannity are partly (if not more) responsible for the incredible political divisiveness in America today.
A personal example:
I had a friend whom I respected, a fellow who served with the Marines in Vietnam before the public even knew about Vietnam, followed by a long career as a policeman. When he retired, he got into Internet groups that espouse Hannity’s “journalism.” He began sending me forwards of forwards of emails, assuming I belonged to the idiot faction. The last one I received a week ago was something about Obama no longer allowing troops to pray before they go into battle. Wazzat?
I lost a long-time friend because I refuse to comment on undocumented and unproven allegations by slick, fast- talking assholes.
Hannity has a right to free speech and I would never impinge upon that freedom. His radio producers defend him by saying his show “is for entertainment purposes only.” It’s all shtick, folks, but the believers will never believe it.
