Dr. J.'s Commentary: Sean Hannity's America

As those of you who listen to Sean Hannity regularly (and I do) know well, Hannity is against many things. "Being against," "always attacking, never defending" is the stock-in-trade of the thousands of Hannity-O'Reilly-Limbaugh clones that litter the countryside of right-wing and Christian Right talk radio and television.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Just because the Supreme Court of this nation put the "A" students in the corner of the class and brought the one wearing the "dunce hat" to the front as a leader, doesn't mean that the rest of us have to follow like sheep.
