This is what I like about Hannity . . . . . . he drinks!!
If anything, he’s intoxicated by the allure of ratings. If he admitted that Americans no longer care what goes on as long as they have their Obamaphones and food stamps, well, it’d be lights out for him.
I stopped watching Fox News years ago. Today, I stop listening to Hannity, Limbaugh, and every other Republican gasbag on talk radio.
The night before the election, Jerry Doyle was making fun of the Republican pundits in talk radio for parroting whatever talking points Rush says.
The disturbing thing about this election is that it was so TRIBAL. The electorate defined itself by its race, gender, sexual orientation. When you’re dealing with a tribal electorate, they are impervious to persuasion, they simply vote their tribe.
I have little reason, therefore, to think that the slight majority of the electorate that voted for Obama will ever “come calling” at any point for conservatism.
The only way back to power for conservatives at this point is to hope that the Left fragments. This might happen if the economy and markets force austerity measures like in Europe and Obama’s thieving constituency is fighting over the diminishing pie.
To hope that we can persuade them with sweet reason, however, is a fool’s errand I fear.
