Hannity caller suggests a Bush-Lieberman ticket, Hannity agrees
Unfortunately there are no transcripts for the radio show. The young male caller identified himself as a Democrat who "leans to the center" but is increasingly drawn to Bush and would love a Bush-Joementum ticket.

Hannity resonded, in reference to Lieberman and Democrats in general: "I tell ya, he's one of the only guys who doesn't scare me."

Hannity said "There's nothing wrong with voting for Bush" and that the caller's parents "would understand" if he "just talked it over with them."

I haven't lied to you yet, and I'm not starting with this post. This happened, folks.

1. Hannity is a f-in moron
very little of Sean's constant shilling for bush surprises me.

Just having Sean on the air breaks CFR laws.

2. Lieberman would never run with Bush
as annoying as he can be sometimes, he's not Zell Miller. However, I must say that I have no idea why any Dem would be "increasingly drawn to Bush." Bush's share of the Dem vote is microscopic now, and will certainly be less than it was in 2000.

12. Sounds like a set-up to me.
Hannity paid somebody to call and say that, I would be willing to believe.

3. The way Lieberman campaigns we should welcome that
but it won't happen. His record on domestic issues clearly positions him as a liberal. He has endorsed Kerry.

5. Like having Lieberman on the ticket would draw dems.
He's already a Republican anyways.

6. Hannity regularly talks to Liberman, but..
Liberman and Hannity seem to be fast friends and Hannity always seems to be prompting Lieberman to agree with Bush*'s policies.
He even tried to get Joe to admit on the show that he might vote for Chimpy but in the end, Joe said that he's a Democrat by choice.
Lieberman is still 'way to friendly to these creeps, though.

7. I doubt there are transcripts for any Hannity distortion fest.
don't leave any fingerprints and it can't be traced back to you.

8. Someone needs to check...
Edited on Tue May-25-04 03:46 PM by FleshCartoon
...that caller's equilibrium. He thinks he's centered when he's obviously leaning far to the right. Lieberman has the same problem.

I'll bet they have inner ear problems.

9. Lieberman
was out spouting the Repug Agenda the otherday. Don't know why he doesn't just join Zell.He is so sour grapes that he is trying to destroy Kerry's chances.Remember when he said if the Dems didn't vote for him they didn't "deserve"the White House"?

11. The caller wasn't a Democrat.
No way do I believe that. He might have SAID he was a Democrat but there's no way. I don't know ANY Democrats who are dissatisfied with Kerry who would actually consider Bush. Hannity loves pimping Lieberman as the "model" Democrat and this caller knew that when he called in.

14. The law of talk radio
Whatever a caller claims to be, he is usually the exact opposite.

This holds true in Usenet also.

15. A Hannity caller pledges her allegiance a few moments ago...
Female caller, sounded middle aged and seemed a little flustered to be on "live" with Hannity. She said:

"I wanna tell you that I just love President Bush..The Liberal Left and The Commie Democrats kinda make my heart hurt sometimes...my husband and I are your biggest fans, we LOVE you and we LOVE what you do."

Hannity then mentioned "161 days to the election" and told the caller:

"I want you to be afraid. I want you to have enough fear to go out and do something."

When it was time for her to go she said:

"We love you...we support you...we agree with you 99.9% of the time."

Hannity asked "What do you disagree with me on?"

And she said "I can't think of anything right now."
