I havent been a Hannity watcher in years but Ive checked in intermittently this week to see if there was any tock to his tick tock tweet. Unless I missed something it seems another case of Seans breathless over-hyping. So yesterday while skipping through the DVR I caught one of Seans panels with Doug Schoen, Lanny Davis and Tezlyn Figaro (a Bernie Bro). I dont know what they were discussing because the entire segment consisted of at least 2 and usually 3 people talking at once, as usual. What made this clip notable, via split screen technology, was that in addition to the normal cacophony of disembodied talking heads we were also provided a live feed from Beijing of some sort of Chinese acrobatic performance. Looks like theyre going for the Millennial demographic.
I also caught part of a segment with Steve Bannon. I dont know what they were discussing either because I was overwhelmed with a sense of nostalgia for the days of yore when Andrew Breitbart used to be a regular guest. I admire Bannon and while he seems to share all of Andrews passion he is lacking his bonhomie.
Always the Happy Warrior
Which got me wondering: what would Andrew make of the country in general and the Donald in particular if he were still alive? I think that the man who invented conservative citizen journalism and activism would have LOVED Trump. How could he not? Trump is the archetype of Breitbarts everyman: an ordinary, outside the Beltway citizen disenfranchised by both parties as well as the media. Trump is the everyman who found his voice yugely - and in the process the voice of millions of other disenfranchised Americans the deplorables. He also discovered the power of one of Andrews favorite media work-arounds (hint, TWEET, TWEET!), for better or worse.
So how would the first man to call out MSM as fake news,
the man who pointed out that politics are downstream from culture, the first man who used Twitter as a weapon
feel about President Trump? Well, I think we all know.

What was the tick-tock?
what is the point of this tripe ?
A hook to keep viewers coming back for the soon-to-be-revealed BIG one.
I could never hate you, NOBO2012!
