1) Sean Hannity has said a lot of reprehensible things of late - no question. But, I'm telling you here, kids, what that blankety-blank said last week on one of his segments went way, WAY, beyond the pale, even for him. Mr. Hannity said that President Obama, during the 2008 campaign, "begged for the job." "BEGGED FOR THE JOB." I mean, talk about a flat-out level of disrespect. And the thing is, folks, it wasn't Mr. Obama who crawled on back to Jerry Falwell, did his very best "cat on a hot tin roof" imitation over immigration, etc.. That was Senator McCain. If anybody "begged for the job", it was him (and, yes, it DOES hurt me to say this in that I absolutely at one point DID respect him)......2) Lisa Lampanelli is as foul-mouthed and disgusting a comic as there is. Unfortunately, she can also be one of the funniest ones. In a recent Comedy Central roast to somebody called Flava Flav, Ms. Lampanelli blurted out (in memoriam to the supposed affair between Flav and actress, Bridget Nielsen) this absolute classic, " How could you (referencing Ms. Nielsen) have sex with this guy. I've screwed more black guys than FEMA and I wouldn't touch him." Let's just say that I more than giggled at it......3) Sheryl Crow supposedly has a new song out that criticizes Sarah Palin. And, yeah, that's fine. Palin at this point clearly deserves a lot of guff. But there is a lyric in the song that does in fact trouble me. Crow says something about "turning off the microphone."....Not good, folks. In this country, we DO NOT turn off anybody's microphone. If Ms. Crow want to turn hers (Crow's) on, that's fine. But she shouldn't go around whining (err, I mean, singing) that we need to curtail free speech. That, my friends, flat-out ain't gonna cut it.
