D.C. Chapter Report: Sean Hannity "Let Freedom Ring" Booksigning 8/22/02
self | Thursday, August 22, 2002 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/22/2002 8:51:06 PM PDT by kristinn

Honor roll for today: BiggRedd and her #1 son; tgslTakoma and daughter of tgsl; FreeTheHostages; BufordP; Ligeia; dixies sass; Exit148; Taxman; Angelwood; Trueblackman; BillF; GunsareOK; and friend of the D.C. Chapter, holdonnow.

Sean Hannity received a boisterous welcome today at a promotional appearance in Washington, D.C. for the release of his first book, Let Freedom Ring (Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism).

Over one thousand people jammed the second floor of the Borders bookstore, at 5333 Wisconsin Ave, NW, to see Hannity broadcast his radio show live from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and to get copies of his book autographed.

A friend of Sean's in the D.C. Chapter relayed a personal invitation from him for us to join him at the booksigning. We gave Sean a warm FReeper welcome, holding signs welcoming him and celebrating his book.

The signs we held said, "(D.C. Chapter (logo)) Welcomes Sean Hannity to D.C.," "Let Freedom Ring!"; "D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com Welcomes Sean"; "The D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com Says 'Sean Hannity is #1 in our Book!, Welcome to D.C., Sean! Let freedom Ring!'"; and "Sean and WMAL are #1 in D.C."

BillF, Taxman, FreeTheHostages and dixie sass stood off to the side of the table where the radio broadcast/booksigning took place, periodically holding up some of the signs throughout the 3-hour show. They also placed a couple signs in the second floor windows facing Wisconsin Avenue.

Sean opened the broadcast by saying, "We're here in Washington, D.C. at Borders Books. In the audience we have the Free Republic D.C. Chapter...." He introduced his guest and close friend, Mark Levin and announced that Lanny Davis would be joining them later.

About 60 chairs in rows were set up in front of the table for the audience. That was an exceedingly small number of chairs for those who showed up. Folks packed the part of the store where Sean was, trying to see him; while those with books formed a line that snaked its way all around the perimeter of the second floor.

Exit148 lucked into one of the seats up front, while the rest of us stood as a group towards the middle of the line. Except for GunsareOK who arrived much later and was way back in the line and tgslTakoma who was asked by the Borders area marketing manager to stay up front and take plenty of photos with her digital camera. Trueblackman, who is a friend and regular guest on Sean's shows, stayed with Sean at the table for the show.

Angelwood had a bag of D.C. Chapter buttons and found them to be quite popular with Sean's fans. Some of them were lurkers while others had stood with us at "Cheney's house" a year-and-a-half ago. Pretty soon it seemed half the people in line were wearing buttons that said, "Hillary Knew, but she can't recall"; "Never Trust Democrats with National Security"; "Remember 9-11"

tgslTakoma gave Clintonista Lanny Davis a FReeper-style welcome as he approached the broadcast table during a break. She told him, "Lanny I have a button for you--I'm from the D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com.," as she handed him the button. He smiled as he took it and read the message.

He said, "Isn't that nice," and turned to his assistant so she could see the button's message,"Clinton's Legacy: 9-11," as he said to her, "Ohhhh, look what they gave me."

He and his assistant giggled and Lanny tossed the button on the table, saying, "Now I have to wash my hands."

After Lanny's segment was over, he made his way outside and was stopped by a few well-wishers. I was outside having a smoke and taking a break from standing in the line.

When he was done glad-handing, I called out to him as he crossed the street with his assistant, "Hey Lanny!"

I paused for him to stop and look back. When he did I told him, "You really suck, man. You supported a rapist; a liar; a perjuror; and a man who sold out our national security to communist China." He just stood there and listened, wanly smiling. I could hear my words echoing up and down the street off the buildings as I finished by saying, "You should be ashamed of yourself, Lanny Davis," so folks on the sidewalk would know who was being told off.

It was a beautiful thing, LOL! Cheers of concurrence and jeers for Lanny erupted from those within earshot.

Back inside the bookstore, Laura Ingraham stopped by for a few minutes to greet her friend Sean and was warmly received by the crowd. Angelwood introduced herself as Laura was leaving and Laura noted that she had, "spoken at a Free Republic event last week."

Angelwood gave her one of her buttons and a D.C. Chapter pen. Laura graciously signed some autographs for some of her fans with the pen before she made a quick exit.

The D.C. Chapter group finally made it's way to the broadcast table around quarter after five. Mark Levin was still there, so we exchanged greetings waited our turn to meet Sean. The Great One, whom Sean acknowledge's in the book, was nice as ever to us and signed his name in Sean's book for those of us who asked him to.

Sean was very gracious to each of us as he signed his book. He announced to the audience during the next break that many FReepers were in attendance and proceeded to tell them about our "Get out of Cheney's House" protests and how much it meant to him that FReepers had taken to the streets then.

We were honored, and so should all our fellow FReepers who worked so hard during that era, that Sean commended us for our efforts.

When the show was coming to its end, Sean told those in line that he would stay as long as he could--another hour to an hour-and-a-half--to sign the books of everyone still in line before he would leave for his TV show.

Even though folks had to wait hours in line, I didn't hear anyone complaining. We all listened to the show and had alot of fun hissing liberals like Bill Press (who has a morning gig on WMAL, Sean's D.C. affiliate) and cheering Sean when he made comments we loved.

Apparently everyone involved in the planning of Sean's appearance vastly underestimated how popular it would be. The stunned staff had to send out for an extra shipment of books to handle the enormous demand. The manager was coy about how many copies of Sean's book were sold, but when asked if it was around one thousand, he said that was "pretty warm."

It looks like Sean Hannity will be the next conservative author to top the bestseller lists!

Great report!!!

Now, if I can get SuzanneC's attention, maybe she will re-issue that invitation for us to go to Sean's booksigning tomorrow night in Alpharetta, GA.

Let me see now...which of Angelwood's buttons should I wear?

Thanks for the report. I hope to meet up with Sean sometime on his book tour. I'm amazed that you guys showed up to greet him, after all the things he said about FR recently (which was due to a call a made to his show). You were kind of enough to welcome him anyway and made him feel welcome. He was gracious enough to acknowledge you, greet you, and sign books. He's a great guy.

Thanks for the report. The enthusiasm of the audience came through loud and clear on the radio show. I am not surprised that Borders' underestimated the number of people who would actually want to see the author of a 'conservative' book.
You all had a bigger crowd than the Reparations March on the Mall last week!

Great report! I listened to the show and was so surprised that Sean introduced the show acknowledging the DC chapter. I thought he was mad at this site, no?

Who was the woman who wanted to debate Lannie after a break but I didn't hear her mentioned again. I wondered if she was a Freeper!

I have missed seeing your name on posts lately! Regards!

I just read this blurb on Rush's site. Isn't she the one who cussed you and the DC chapter during a Saturday freep at the WH?

Consultant Chris Black, who used to be a newspaper reporter in Boston and was very active during the House impeachment hearings as a network contributor, has the job of remaking Mrs. Heinz.

As in Mrs. John F. Kerry

I saw your name mentioned as one of the "DC FReepers" who attended Sean Hannity's live broadcast and book signing at Border's. How did it go for you? Did you get your book signed? I really wanted to go, but I was working, and even then, I couldn't have gotten down there. But it sounds like it was a blast!

Great report! I listen to Sean everyday and love his show, but of course, today I had to work and miss it, darn it! Love that you got to tell Jihad Lannie Davis what a scum he is.
I don't think Sean is coming to my area, but I am going to buy his book and I know I will love it!
Thanks so much DC Chapter for representing us in such a commendable way!

As always, I enjoyed hearing you take on Lyin Lanny on the radio (and seeing you both on Hannity & Colmes). If MSNBC wanted to get their ratings out of the toilet, how about replacing Dumbahue with a debate/guest show entitled Levin and Davis?

Congratulations on a great Freep all you DC members!

I wish I could have joined you again.

The report is wonderful. I was listening on the radio, and knew you were there, but this fills in all the blanks.

You represent us all very well. Thank You!

Dang! I thought about going. My ten year old son wanted to go but I had a hundred errands to run, so basically I screwed up and made a bad decision.

I didn't see anything on FR about people going but I should have known better. Can you please add me to your ping list?

I've been rather apolitical for the the past two years and I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!!!

It sounds like Sean Hannity's booksigning was a successful event. I wish for him great success with his book as I'm sure the rest of the FReepers do. Even though I don't know you guys personally, somehow I feel so proud of you all for all of the effort you put into what you believe is right. Trueblackman - if/when you have to miss a special social event to be on your friends show...kristinn -- if/when you are writing your notes for some FR event -- never get down or think that your hard work and effort doesn't make a difference; it does...sooooo much. Not only does the DC chapter represent the DC chapter but all of us who live in places far away from our nations capital. You are people who represent 'we the people' - the grassroots conservatives/constitutionalists/etc of America - who would be standing there beside you all if we could. Thanks to all of you, you guys and gals are the 'bestest'!!!!!!!!!!

"Who was the woman who wanted to debate Lannie after a break but I didn't hear her mentioned again. I wondered if she was a Freeper!"

She wasn't a Freeper. She sat in the front row, and during the break, Davis went over to her and they had their little whatever. Whatever the whatever was, I couldn't tell, but Lanny/Lannie? was smiling all the time.

During all the breaks, both he and Mark Levin went around shaking hands.

Sean was a sweetheart! He loved having the audience, and with all the fun he was having, he never lost the points he was trying to make with his guests.

When he was signing my book, he asked what name. I said "Exit 148". He stopped and looked at me. I quickly said that it was my Freeper handle, and that brought a big smile. He then went to his mike and mentioned Free Republic's 'Cheney's House' bit.

He is really cute! Thinner than TV, of course, and completely relaxed. It was quite warm, and his mike was set-up near a sunny window. When he came in, he was wearing a jacket, blue shirt and no tie, but because of the heat, the jacket soon came off.

A fun afternoon!

So, is there anything of actual interest in the book itself, or is it another one of these "Hey, my agent says I hafta cobble together something to capitalize on my temporary fame!" deals?

Insights, or nostrum rehash?

Hey kristinn! You guys RAWK!!!

I hope I can make it to Sean's appearance in San Francisco - I have to work Monday night and can't make the Commonwealth Club appearance. So glad to hear you guys welcomed him to the event in true Freeper Style! Just finished listening to the Hour 2 replay on KSFO.

I send his producer quite a bit of the original and not-as-easy-to-find stuff, and it sounds like hostile callers haven't turned him from the conservative warriors on FreeRepublic.

Eagles UP!!!

I was wondering where Ms. Black went.

It was Doctor Raoul whom she swore at one Sunday afternoon at the White House. She swore at Angelwood the next day, also.

Ms. Black was bit nicer to the D.C. Chapter later on when we were outside 'Cheney's house.'

I had just switched stations to listen to Hannity after Rush's program was over, and was tickled to hear him welcome the D.C. Chapter and mention your signs.

Thanks for the great report! I've been watching for it. Will keep checking back for the pictures.

I loved the way you guys FReeped Lanny Davis, et.al.

FANTASTIC job!!

Why did the DC Chapter of Free Republic refuse to let their pictures be used in the montage shown at the Free Republic Network Conference that was just held in Las Vegas?

As I got in my car to go to work I heard Sean open his show with a "Thank You" to the DC Chapter of FreeRepublic for being there. I almost missed it because the cheering in the background sounded like fans at a sporting event. It was great and I'm sorry I couldn't be with you. Nice pics Takoma. Hope to see everyone this weekend.

You folks are great! I wonder if Sean is gonna stop by Denver anytime. Looks like I'll have to do a search and find out.

 

 

Henry Bowman's right hand tightened around the walnut grip of the Solothurn S18-1000. The weapon had been a present from his Father, given to him on his fourteenth birthday in 1967. Cost $189.50 back in the sixties Henry thought irrelevantly. I thought that was a steal. Dad's friends thought it was astronomical. Wonder what they'd think now. --UC
