It seems there isn't a Sean Hannity thread (until now).  Hard to believe after twelve years of BellGab.

I watched a bit of his TV show tonight for the first time in probably three or four years.  He's even more insufferable than I remember. 

When you want Chunk Booger's right wing equivalent of a meat headed talking point regurgitation machine, Hannity is your guy.  Pure propaganda.  Not one original thought exits the hole in his face.  Five minutes of reading Twitter and you'll already know every angle of today's Hannity broadcast.

His TV show was 1000% better when Alan Colmes was on it, despite the fact that Colmes was a fucking idiot who went to his death believing OJ "didn't do it."

While I realize Hannity and I are largely of the same political worldview, I find him to be a dumbed down inlet valve allowing the politically inexperienced and unaware to feel like they've accessed the conversation.  When I talk with my mom and things shift to politics, I immediately sense a very surface and generalized understanding of complex issues, and it's not because she's dumb.  It's because Hannity is her primary source of political news and analysis.

And by the way, I haven't forgotten Hannity's dismissive attitude toward Ron Paul in 2008.  Had Hannity shown McCain even 5% of the contempt he demonstrated for Ron Paul on a nightly basis, perhaps the Republicans would have nominated someone who was worth a fuck.  And why was Hannity so put out by Ron Paul?  Because Paul was against the Iraq war.  Full stop.  In fact, Hannity was still cheerleading the Iraq war until Trump came along and forced him to change as he realized (after thirteen years) he'd lost the Iraq argument with his own audience.  Yes, Hannity supported Trump eight years later when Trump was preaching 75% of Ron Paul's platform.  I never forgave Hannity for Ron Paul.

And then there's the fact that Hannity won't shut the fuck up for two seconds and let people speak.  Sometimes he has interesting guests, but good luck hearing anything they have to say.  Sean is so in love with the sound of his own voice that he can't let anyone finish a thought.  God forbid he shouldn't be the focus of attention for twelve seconds.  I see people complaining about this constantly. 

Correction:  I just heard a segment with Mark Levin which Hannity didn't interrupt.  Wow!  So, note to self:  If you're a miserable fuck with a voice that's the audio equivalent of throat cancer and you worked tirelessly to block Trump's path to the republican nomination while being wrong about absolutely everything until a fear of losing your audience forced you to change, you'll be allowed to speak uninterrupted on Hannity.

Fuck you, Sean Hannity.

Another guy you hate, Savage, likes to make fun of him a lot.

I don't hate Savage.  I just couldn't listen to him because I found him too depressing.  I think Savage hates Hannity primarily out of jealousy of his success.

He does have his blue moments but he seems fairly successful himself. I donít listen all the time but sometimes Iíll catch a bit of his show here and there. Same with Rush.

Savage was definitely successful, but he never enjoyed mainstream acceptance the way Rush and Hannity did, and he hates them both for it.  I think this became really pronounced when he was banned from appearing on FNC.

Is Savage still a Trump fan?  I was listening to him prior to Trump's election and after, and toward the end of my listening stretch it felt like Savage was just itching to turn on Trump.  Following in the footsteps of his transparently hollow reasons for hating Rush and Hannity, I think it was because he felt largely responsible for Trump's political success and Trump wasn't repaying it by appearing on his show for an hour each night.

Yes, Savage is still a Trump fan, though he does a small amount of criticizing the president every now and then.  He got a private phone call from Trump a week or so ago and is invited to the White House once a year to celebrate the Jewish New Year.

Actually, I'm listening to the latest episode of Savage's podcast as I type this.  He certainly hasn't lost anything since I heard him last.  He must be 75 at this point.

A few minutes into this episode he was discussing his recent ride on AF1 with the President, so things must still be good on that front. 

In sync with my comments above, I got a chuckle when (on an episode I'm randomly listening to) he mentioned "The Water Carrier" (Hannity) and "The Golfer" (Rush).  Savage used to call Hannity "The Wall Banger" but that's a reference to Hannity's construction days, so perhaps Savage dropped that since it sounds a bit elitist.  "The Water Carrier" is far more appropriate anyway.  Savage also mentioned his ongoing absence from TV, haha.  My finger is on the pulse.  I will say, I'm enjoying his podcast.  Will listen more.

Ha!  I haven't listened to Savage in awhile but used to listen in his early days when he was more prevalent on AM in my area.  I also got a laugh with his pet names, like "The Wall Banger" for Hannity, "Groucho Marx's Grandmother" for Levin, and "Big Foot" for the insufferable Chuck Schumer.

Hannity is pretty much unlistenable for the first hour of his radio show.  It's always a monologue rant and pretty much the same thing over and over, filled with his stock phrases, like "The corrupt, compromised, coward & congenital liar Adam Schiff."  Yeah, yeah, we get it, move on Hannity.  The rest of the radio show isn't as bad since he'll at least have guests, thank God, although it's usually the same cast of characters.  I do like to listen when he has Gingrich on, though.  I feel like I'm back in school, listening to an amiable history professor. ;)

Neal Boortz used to call him the baby Jesus because of the way people reacted to how pretty people think he is.

Savage also used to call him Lou Costello.  A fairly apt description when you think about it.

I rarely catch the TV show but on radio Hannity is the absolute worst. I don't understand for the life of me, why this guy has a nationally syndicated radio show. He's not the least bit entertaining, never thinks outside the box and will never question anything the Republicans say.

Notwithstanding his conservative bias and repetitious commentary, Hannity provides a needed counterbalance to the exclusively leftist talking heads on other networks who compete with him in a prime time slot.  The difference between them is that when it comes to the facts, Hannity rarely gets it wrong while his competition consistently slants, mischaracterizes and denies the facts and when that fails and the truth is revealed they studiously ignore it and move on to the next bullshit story.  Given the choices available to those who get their news from cable news outlets, Iím glad there is someone with his grit and tenacity in that time slot and judging by his numbers Iím not alone in that appreciation.

Ouch!  Putting Hannity in the same category as Ian Punnet is a heinous act, dude.  I'm sure he'd rather take a kick to the groin.

Yes, indeed.  If he could just back off the caffeine and reptitious stock phrases, it would make all the "My Pillow" and " Shari's Berries" commercials a lot more tolerable.  If I hear "compromised, corrupt, coward, congenital liar" one more time, I'm going to have to personally escort Adam Schiff out of D.C. in the trunk of a south of the border bound vehicle.

In all honesty I should add that I donít listen to Hannityís radio program at all and only watch portions of his TV broadcasts selectively on you tube where I can skip past the boring bits.  I canít remember the last time I watched one of his shows from beginning to end. For me itís better to take Hannity in small doses.

I keep AM talk on for background lots of times, so I'm regularly exposed to his radio show.  I tend to switch to something else for his first hour, at a minimum.  I give him credit for exposing the demonrat and usual MSM corruption but he's just too hard on my ears when he's raising his blood pressure with his daily rant/ spiel with his continuous stock phrases.  It's monotonous, annoying, and boring.  I may tune back in, especially for the second hour, if he has a guest to break his ranting.  I like getting the latest from Gregg Jarrett, Jay Sekulow, etc. and The Newt is always amusing, in an RCH-kind-of-way, only rational.

I think overall he is. He still gets invited to the white house occassionally. He maintains that most of Trumps platform is based on his ideas and Iíd say thatís probably mostly true. However, he maintains his right to be critical of him. He doesnít want to be seen as a cheerleader the way Hannity often is. People sometimes view this as him turning on Trump but I donít think so. He just doesnít want to see him get thrown off course and fucked by the deep state. I actually havenít listened in quite awhile. i should tune in and see where heís at these days.

I subbed to Savage's podcast the other day. I've enjoyed it thus far.

Yes, sir.  He was obviously shocked by Rush's announcement.  I was stunned but had an uneasy feeling when he was missing so many shows in January.

 Rush is a radio icon.  God be with him.
