1. Hannity was speechless. Hunt didn't hesitate one bit endorsing Webb
Shithead Sean looked like he had been kicked in the groin. Good for Hunt.

3. What the FUCK????????
I am OFFENDED by the UNIFORMED audience they dragged out to serve as a backdrop for that partisan piece of claptrap and horseshit.

What has our country come to?

While I am delighted that someone had the SANITY to check that madman Hannity, I find the MISUSE of the Sailors seen on that clip OFFENSIVE in the extreme!!!!


AGGGGGGGGH!!!!! :wtf: :argh:

5. why did the audience clap when the only thing
hannity said was I would endorse Allen cause he has been a good Senator, when they just heard that Webb received the Navy cross, the second highest honor??

did I miss something?

7. Just that there are mindless sheep out there who will vote Repug
no matter what.

What I found encouraging was that Colonel Hunt, a regular Fox News military analyst, strongly praised Webb. Maybe a few of the audience or a handfull of viewers will listen to him...

14. Well, who knows who was doing the clapping? The camera was on fatface
when the applause was heard. And it wouldn't surprise me if they edited.

But here's a video you may enjoy, that I HIGHLY recommend:

15. Agree, judaspriestess. Webb is one of the most highly decorated
Vietnam Vets out there, and you would think that alone would earn him the support of servicemen and veterans alike.

Sick and sad, indeed.

9. Its amazing how the military has been indoctrinated to
believe they belong to the Republican party. I was astounded they were clapping for Allen when the Col. just endorsed a Navy Cross holder and former Navy Secretary and those fool sailors did not acknowledge it.

13. Maybe they installed an APPLAUSE sign,
and Hannity gave the signal to some guy to push the button after he said "George Allen blah blah blah".

17. There was a guy in the corner making motions to the crowd with his arms.
I'm not kidding. He was in the corner of the set and they showed a shot of the entire stage set-up, with this guy waving his arms immediately after returning from a commercial break, as to get the crowd cheering, which they did.

make another donation to Webb's campaign. Can't do much, just want to let him know that many of us from other states, such as Jebby's do SUPPORT him and are rooting for him to win!!

16. Thanks for your support from a VA resident!
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 01:05 PM by DemsUnited
We're doing our best to turn VA purple (blue is a little optimistic in this Southern State).

Jim Webb is a successful novelist & screenwriter who is running for Senate because he felt called to serve. He knew it was going to be a dogfight and went for it anyway.

He is rough, unpolished, honest, smart, and a "born fighter". He is unbought and owes no favors to anyone. What you see is what you get.

Allen was supposed to walk away with this election but Webb has pulled into a statistical tie. He can win this.

Again, thanks for your support! And if you're a Virginia resident also, well, you know all this already!
