Poor, Poor Hannity – Don’t Let The Door Hit You

Earlier this month, Governor Cuomo, of New York said something that was on his mind about Republican lawmakers in his state. He actually uses the “E” word, (extreme), to describe some of the Republicans he believes are working against the interests of his state. Back in the day, that word was only used to describe young people who were trying to find another way to build our nation. We all know who that term really applies to, and I salute Cuomo for pointing it out.

From “Daily News“:

Who are they?” Cuomo said about the Republicans. “Are they these extreme conservative, right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that’s not who New Yorkers are. If they are moderate Republicans, like in the Senate right now, who control the Senate – moderate Republicans have a place in this state.

Sean Hannity of Fox “news” fame appeared to take the remark personally, as some other radical pundits did, and he said he is going to get out of New York as quickly as possible. That doesn’t appear to be the real reason he’s leaving. Looks like he’s cutting his birth ties there to get lower taxes. How noble.

The Daily Show knew exactly how to give Sean a perfect farewell:

Watch here.

More fun:

Here.

    Larry,
    Over the last 50 years, virtually all the states which have lost population and congressional seats were high taxed and Democrat ruled states and the states which added population were low tax and Republican controlled states. With California being the exception to that.
    So Hannity is just doing what tens of millions of others have already done. Vote with their feet.

      My niece has lived in New York for decades and I haven’t heard a complaint.

      • #3 by brewski on January 30, 2014 - 7:42 pm

        Ask her.

        • #4 by Larry Bergan on January 31, 2014 - 11:58 pm

          She can come back here any time she wants and be welcomed with open arms.

    There may be another reason Hannity wants to pick up stakes. I haven’t watched Fox “news” for years now, but apparently, even though he lost his nightly show there a while back, he appears to have his weekend show. Maybe that one is ending too, otherwise he’s going to have to fly in every week to do it.

    Plus, maybe it isn’t just the governor who makes him feel unwelcome. That funny video is based on reality. I’m sure the vast majority of New Yorkers hate Hannity and would like to have somebody around to give THEM a voice. There is not ONE liberal radio station in New York. You can’t tell me the market decided that.

      Ask Richard, he seems to watch Fox News all the time. He keeps telling me what they say.

      • #7 by Larry Bergan on January 30, 2014 - 9:23 pm

        Unfortunately, Fox “news” still captivates segments of ignorant people in our broken society, which means other organizations must comment on it.

        That’s where Richard gets his information about the channel, and you know it.

        Even Glenn Beck now says he regrets being on the channel and helping to divide our country, I really think he is proud that he was able to do that.

      Just a handful of years ago, MSNBC had a ridiculous polling show hosted by Frank Lunz with a phony audience. At the time, they had no substantial liberal programming at all.

      Finally, after some 20 years of cable “news” political nonsense right from the desk of the GOP, they decide to give some of the other side and you’re calling them THE network of hate and division.

      I have to get some sleep.

        It seems that if you become so reckless and irresponsible that you have to issue public apology after public apology, that at some point you need to realize that you are the problem.

        • #11 by Larry Bergan on January 31, 2014 - 5:26 pm

          You know as well as I do that Fox never issues apologies. If they did, HALF their programming would be devoted to that. It would be silly to issue apologies to lies. It would be defeating the purpose of lying.

          You also know that Fox went to court to get a decision from a judge, saying they could legally lie to the people in their country; and GOT it! In Canada, Fox isn’t allowed to call itself a news organization.

            Larry, I looked that up. False. Stop believing internet rumors. Go back to smoking ganja.

          • #13 by Larry Bergan on February 1, 2014 - 8:09 am

            What the hell is ganja?

    brewski?

  5. #15 by Larry Bergan on February 1, 2014 - 10:19 am

    Call me paranoid, but I believe I’ve been duck taped from facebook because I swore.

    I never threatened anybody in any way.

    brewski:

    Did you think the videos were funny?

    • #17 by brewski on February 1, 2014 - 7:49 pm

      In order to think something is funny you have to get the premise of the joke in the first place. I don’t ever watch Hannity, I don’t know where he lives, I didn’t know he was going anywhere, I don’t care where he goes, I don’t know why you care what he does, I don’t know why you pay any attention to him at all. I don’t. So, no, I don’t think it is funny because I am not in on the joke in the first place. I don’t know why you are.

      • #18 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 11:25 am

        I worked in an optical lab with a guy who had a “Rush is right” bumper sticker on his car. Since there were zero liberal stations on the air, we listened to Rush and the Hannity for all those years.

        My blood was boiling every day. It was gratifying when KSL finally dropped him. I can’t believe they had the idiot on for all those years.

    I feel as if I’m falling. :(

    • #20 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 11:50 am

      Back on Facebook. I don’t know what happened. Probably something I did wrong.

  8. #21 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 2:03 pm

    So we’ve determined here, that brewski has no sense of humor.

    Humor is really good for your health brewski, if you don’t get some, you won’t even live as long as I have. And it’s fun!

  9. #22 by brewski on February 2, 2014 - 5:17 pm

    No. I have a great sense of humor. I laugh out loud every day at the crap I read on One Utah.

    Like I already explained, in order to get a joke one needs to understand the background reference. I don’t know anything about Hannity or where he is leaving, so I don’t understand the joke.

  10. #23 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 5:33 pm

    Limbaugh was on for three hours, and Hanniy was on for three hours after him, EVERY DAY in America for years, and brewski doesn’t have a clue who he is.

    Telling.

    • #24 by brewski on February 2, 2014 - 8:04 pm

      I did not say I did not know who he is. I said I don’t watch him and I don’t know where he lives and where he is leaving. That is the premise of the alleged joke.

      • #25 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 8:41 pm

        An “alleged joke” would be one thing, but a funny joke is another thing altogether.

        Do you think think the video is funny?

        • #26 by brewski on February 2, 2014 - 9:50 pm

          How many times do I need to repeat the fact that a joke is only funny if one gets the context?

          • #27 by Larry Bergan on February 2, 2014 - 11:25 pm

            You want CONTEXT!

            I got your CONTEXT right here!

            Hanniy’s job at Fox, which was broadcast on KSL, was to promote a war with Iraq!

            How did THAT work out, besides for Dick Cheney’s wallet?

            Do I sound angry?

          • #28 by brewski on February 3, 2014 - 9:39 am

            Take it up with Hannity. I’m not sure why you are yelling at me about it. I don’t watch him.

  11. #29 by Nathan Erkkila on February 3, 2014 - 3:33 am

    Larry. I do appreciate the videos, but is there a way you can remove their auto play function? Most people can’t stand websites that have audio upon loading the page.

    • #30 by Larry Bergan on February 3, 2014 - 2:00 pm

      That’s strange. It doesn’t autoplay on my computer. In fact the embed code says autoplay=false.

      • #31 by Nathan Erkkila on February 3, 2014 - 9:06 pm

        That is really weird. Either way, I decided to block them on my browser, Anyone can watch them except me.

      • #32 by cav on February 4, 2014 - 8:12 am

        LIES!

        It auto-plays on mine so it must be true. Annoying in any event.

  12. #33 by Larry Bergan on February 4, 2014 - 6:02 pm

    Sorry for the inconvenience guys!

    I hate autoplay vids too. I changed them to a link instead.

    Gee, maybe my new Windows 8 has an advantage after all.
