Ridiculous Diversions

Reported by Deborah - May 1, 2005

There has been very little real news on H&C recently. On Friday's show, 4/29, Hannity took a break from the Runaway Bride with two segments that could have been easily tweaked into Daily Show segments.Hannity is searching far and wide to find diversions from politics and he's coming up with some ridiculous stuff.

Chuck Lawrence, Vietnam veteran, was interviewed because he waited in line at a Jane Fonda book signing and when he reached Fonda said,
"I don't want your blood sucking book." That was the whole deal yet Hannity talked with him as if he had made a remarkable statement with this behavior.

Lawrence looked like a guy with some serious issues. His eyes were very bright and frankly he looked crazed. He explained that he just couldn't stand the war being brought up over and over. He called Fonda a seditious traitor but also laid responsibility on the media for continuing the dialogue about Vietnam which he obviously couldn't handle. At this point, Lawrence looked like someone who might crack under pressure.

So what did Hannity do at this moment? Mr. Sensitive asked him, "How does this make you feel? Then he played an audio clip of Jane Fonda circa 1972 on radio Hanoi. I had a brief vision of Lawrence turning into The Hulk at that moment but he handled Hannity's cruelty quite well.

Then two concerned Mothers expressed outrage because their children's school had changed "under God" to "under your belief system" in the pledge of allegiance.Hannity and the two women were overwhelmed with horror despite the fact that the person who made the change had apologized and returned to the original pledge. The Mothers claimed that the children were traumatized and one of them gave a little speech about the brave men risking their lives.(comment: It sounded very coached to me)

Now that the Runaway Bride is home and the Minutemen have visited DC,
what will Hannity use for diversion this week?
