Mark Ames, The eXiled, joins Thom Hartmann. “Everybody wants to be a star,” is the refrain of the old song of the same name. And, apparently, that “everybody” includes wannabee comedian Steven Crowder, who’s got a little-viewed YouTube site from which he’s trying to make a living. And it appears that in his rush to fame, Crowder punked Sean Hannity. At the giant protest against Michigan’s new “right to work for less money” law, Crowder apparently provoked a union member so badly the guy was knocked to the ground. When he came back up, he came up swinging. In true Andrew Brietbart style, Crowder played the helpless victim, and Hannity stepped right into it, referring to “union thugs” in his setup and giving Crowder several minutes of airtime.
