I’ve noticed the same response by Hannity, and Levin to some extent, recently. The caller will start off sweetly sucking up to the host, then start with a sing-song whine about “give Obama a chance”, blah blah blah. The host just listens and is overly polite. I, too, cannot stand it and turn the stations more than I used to.
Hannity is the one who drives me batsh*t with seminar callers. He had one yesterday who lied about being a conservative and came off as a complete moonbat, and the Leprechaun just sat there and took it. Levin would have had this posers’ nuts on a platter. I’m just glad I’ve got Dennis Miller and Steve Malzberg instead of Hannity.
