Multimillionaire Sean Hannity put on his “regular guy” hat last night as he knocked President Obama’s “big fundraiser” with the “Learjet limousine liberals” - that latter said with a mock English accent, for extra “regular guy” points. For even more “regular guy” points Hannity made a point of calling himself “a Wal-Mart guy.” What Hannity forgot to mention? He’s got his own champagne tastes, takes part in plenty of pricey fundraisers for conservatives and when he’s not in “regular guy” mode loves to boast about his coziness with elites.
Speaking about the cost of the fundraiser, which was at the home of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Hannity sneered, “$40,000, more than the average American makes!” But it’s way less than he makes, of course. In fact, it’s way less than just the property taxes he pays for his waterfront mansion on Long Island. And is there any doubt Hannity would turn down that kind of money when he does fundraising for, say, Republican John Kasich at a “mere” $500-$5,000 a ticket? How many under-$40,000-a-year earners were at that event, I'd love to know.
Not any of the three conservative panelists seemed to think of that. They were all having too much fun playing along with the “regular guy” game and making fun of those left-wing elites. So loud-mouth radio host Bill Cunningham called himself “a regular working man with dirt under my fingernails and I believe in America.” Sure he is, a working man who is reportedly among the highest paid terrestrial radio personalities in the country. Just like the rest of us!
“I run around with normal people” Cunningham insisted – after naming David Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Hannity as his peeps. Apparently, “regular working man” Cunningham thinks it’s “normal” that Hannity’s speaking fee includes private jet travel and that he charged $50,000 in travel expenses for a speech he “volunteered” to give at Brigham Young University. Doesn’t everybody?
Cunningham said, “I love Wal-Mart Republicans. I despise limousine liberals and country club Republicans who don’t represent people like us.”
“I’m a Wal-Mart guy,” Hannity piped up.
Sure you are, Sean. I'm sure some of your best friends shop there.
“More like some of his best friends own Wal-Mart.”
That is, LOTS OF SHARES at Wal-Mart — and you can bet the house these friends are all VEHEMENTLY AGAINST any hikes in the minimum wage. Remember the fundamental equations of Economics 101:
CHEAP WAGES = HUGE CORPORATE PROFITS
HUGE CORPORATE PROFITS = HAPPY CORPORATE SHAREHOLDERS

Yeah… when fashions change, and I have to get a new formal dress that will be accepted at a “tie” event, I have to tighten my belt to save for them, unless I get an Amazon Card for my birthday or a commission, and they “only” cost $120-$150. That is seriously the cheapest I can go and not offend people being “too casual.”
Yeah, these people can really relate to someone like me.

I’m about 99% certain that kkklannity has never even been inside a Wal-Mart. Who does the snobby “custom made monogramed cowboy boots” kkklannity think he’s fooling?
