Out Of Touch Hannity Thinks Ham Costs 79 Cents "In Most Grocery Stores"

Reported by Ellen - July 21, 2009 -

When was the last time multimillionaire Sean Hannity actually shopped in a grocery store - 1985? On last night's (7/20/09) Hannity, he attacked the Obama administration for purchasing ham for food banks and soup kitchens at a cost of about $1.50 per pound. "By the way," Hannity sneered, "the ham (the government has paid) $1.50 for? It actually costs only 79 cents in most grocery stores." Oh, really? Either Hannity hasn't set foot in a grocery store for a good 20+ years or we'd love to know where he shops.

A check of the prices of ham at Food Emporium, in New York City, for delivery in the 10036 zip code, which is where News Corp resides, shows that the cost of ham ranges from $6.99/pound to $9.99/pound.

In case that's too upscale, I also checked Kroger in La Porte, Indiana. They have Oscar Mayer chopped ham on sale this week at $2.49, for a pound, with a purchase of 10 qualifying items. Otherwise, the sales price is $2.99 with a shopper's card.
