Stop The Inanity!

Thanks to a generous offer from Cathy in the Wright (an offer made by possible by the good folks at Olsen Chain & Cable), Saint Paul, Atomizer and wife, and me and my wife will be heading down to O'Shaughnessy Auditorium at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul tonight to catch Sean Hannity and the AM 1500 "Talk Stars." To say that I'm not a big Hannity fan would be an understatement. While he definitely is a smooth talking host who always seem to be saying the right things, I get the impression that there's really no "there" there. His political views are shallow and not really backed by a solid ideological foundation. At least that's what comes across to me. When you compare him to the likes of Prager, Medved, Hewitt, and Bennett, he appears to be a bit of an empty suit.

But free tickets is free tickets and I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Besides, the word on the street is that none of the AM 1500 "Talk Stars" were all that thrilled about being asked forced to share the stage with Hannity tonight. There definitely will be a bit of tension in the air and that tension could make for some entertaining discussions. Especially if Mischke has a couple of Summits before the show.
