(Admin Moderator -- please leave in Breaking News. Hannity holding up a FReeper sign is big breaking news after the recent little battle.)
FReeper blurblogger just dropped me off a few minutes ago. We were at the 4-hour event in Redondo Beach, CA put on by the KABC talk show hosts.
When blurblogger gets home, he will be posting an amazing photo. He and I are in a picture with Sean Hannity, and Sean is holding up a sign that says I LOVE FREEPERS.
What a fun event. Doug McIntyre, Larry Elder, Al Rantel, Mr. KABC, Sean Hannity, and new overnight host Kevin James put on a great show for us. There were some sparks between McIntyre and Elder over free trade, outsourcing, and tariffs. There were also some sparks involving the lone liberal on the stage, Mr. KABC.
There were boos when DemocRATS were mentioned.
Although we disagree politically, I am going to give big kudos to the MC, Brian Whitman. Brian is indeed a lovable liberal. He was a little upset a few weeks ago when someone reported to him that I had called him a Kneepad Knight. Hey, it was in good fun. Just like Monica was literally on her kneepads, the liberals were figuratively doing the same for their guy. Brian accepted my explanation, and we are friends again.
For those who listen to Hannity on Friday afternoon, it is Brian Whitman doing the voices of Bush 41, Bush 43, Michael Jackson, and the guy who got impeached. Brian is funny as hell and is a great talent. If more libs had his talent and sense of humor, perhaps we would get along better. His Michael Jackson stuff is superb.
Blurblogger brought some sign material in his car, and got it and his magic marker at a break. We managed to eventually work our way to a front row seat and were in position to get with Hannity at a break. I introduced myself as FReeper Doug, and he asked why I haven't called in for awhile. Hey, I've tried, but the line is always busy.
Sean autographed blurblogger's I LOVE FREEPERS sign, and a guy took our picture with Sean holding it.
Look, if someone comes on this thread to bash Hannity, I am going to find you and rip your throat out. Really. Go do your own thread. Yes, Sean promotes his books. Good for him. That's capitalism, and you would promote yours if you had a book and marketing sense. I promoted my book, A CHILD'S EYE VIEW OF JOHN KERRY, by giving a few copies to them.
Sean is a great ally on our side. He exposes the left's hypocrisy, uses their own words against them, and gets in their faces. He also has helped raise millions of dollars for families of fallen warriors.
Good news for us, uncleshag. Sean is waiting for his copy of YOU'VE BEEN FREEPED, Vol. 1. So is Whitman.
By far the biggest round of applause during the evening was for a member of the audience. Captain Michael Pierce is returning to Mosul on Friday. He thought he had a month off, but they cut it two weeks short. There was a big time standing O for the captain. At the end of the program, he was called up on stage. Michael happened to be at the Hollywood FReep recently. Godspeed, Michael. Go kick some more butt and make it home safely.
Did any other FReepers attend?
Stay tuned. The picture will probably be up by about midnight.
Marking my place to see the pic.
Marking a place for you too.
See you tomorry.
I'm calling it a night.
I gotta see this.
Your tagline... OH SO TRUE!
Oh, now, you had to go and do this - just as I was about to get into the shower!
Must - stay - awake...
Late Night Krew BUMP
Thanks for the ping onyx. Night-night and pleasant dreams to you.
I heard much of it on the radio...funny guys!
We are on the same team. Can't we all just get along? :)
Thanks for the report. I am glad it went so well.
I considered going, but then I didn't. Another missed opportunity... sigh...
How many people were there?
Holy Cow and today,Sean led off his radio show with a thanks you FREEPERS for exposing Dan Rather and then mentioned a couple of other sites, but FR was first and got the biggest kiddos.
btw, the show will replay at 1:00 am...kabc
The hall was packed, and someone said it holds about 1500.
Not QUITE breaking news--Hannity patched things over a day or two after making the "FReepers eat their own" comments--but still good to know.
A thread BEGGING the mods not to delete it that promises a photo, well, maybe before sunrise...
This should be interesting.
I missed that
Thanks for the info
Sean was right when he said that people who check in on FR don't like to see themselves being eviscerated. We can certainly be critical, but do it respectfully. We are on the same team, and right now that team has a two huge jobs --- supporting the War on Terror and stopping Hillary Clinton. Let's keep the focus and not eat our own.
With you on this one too. Have a restful night.
Well, I think it is breaking news to actually have him holding an I LOVE FREEPERS sign. That's pretty good stuff and great work by blurblogger.
I'm not begging that it not be deleted. I would just appreciate it staying in breaking news so those who wake up in a few hours on the East Coast will not miss it.
Interesting story/radio ping.
Placing my marker to see the future pic :-)
Awesome, DFU! I can hardly wait to see the picture. I sure won't be bashing Sean--he loves our President and he loves this country and has fought darn hard against the Libs!
(If I knew the pic would be up before midnite, I'd wait).
Before midnight ???
HAHAHAHA ... it's 3 am here
Two words, Doug...
I am glad there was a large audience and great that you went and there are pictures too! :)
I listened to Sean's show today and he was at the top of his game, no doubt about it. It was a great show. Also, with regard to Free Republic, when Sean handed out credit for exposing the CBS forged documents scandal, first billing went to Free Republic ("....led by the freepers", he said). Sean then proceeded to show the guts to relentlessly question why the perpetrators of the CBS fraud are not being investigated for federal crimes. Sean was outstanding.
Sean really gained a lot of respect from this freeper today.
It depends how fast he drove home in his hot classic Cougar.
But I am tired tonight.
Does blurblogger reside nearby?
If he hadn't smoothed things over, sure. I'm not saying this is a nonevent, and it's great that he did it--I'm just not sure this should be in breaking news.
Either way, thanks for posting it.
Hey, you answered my question BEFORE I posted it!
Kreskin are you?
He is about a half an hour from me. He was hoping to have it by midnight.
This thread is very Rita Cosby-esque.
Ah, the midnite hour.
Ya get the photo...ya post it.
A thread threatening (LOL) a subsequent photo posted in Breaking News?
Take a breath.
Hey, go to bed. :)
This reminds me of the teaser in KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE --- nuclear missiles headed for the U.S.................details at 11.
I can't stay awake,
but I'll be back.
I drank a LOT of water.
Charades while we wait, anyone? : )
You'll be laughing at this tomorrow.
If anything should ever be deleted from Breaking News (if only to retain the sanctity of real breaking news), then this is that thing.
You made your comment about midnight in 27, then I responded. No Carnac here.
By the way, Doug, great post.
No matter how anybody feels about Sean, it is important to remember that he is a great warrior for the good guys, and his "Hannitization tour" ABSOLUTELY helped Dubya in the November election, particularly with regard to turnout.
I'm laughing now.
BSF - please entertain my friend WVR.
Bunny shadows on the wall? :)
Sounds like...Hump? Humphrey Bogart! "Treasure of the Sierra Madre!"
