Trent Lott Isn’t HannitizedJune 15, 2007
Oh brother, some politicians just say the oddest things:
Comments by Republican senators on Thursday suggested that they were feeling the heat from conservative critics of the bill, who object to provisions offering legal status. The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”
At some point, Mr. Lott said, Senate Republican leaders may try to rein in “younger guys who are huffing and puffing against the bill.”
I noticed they were talking about this over at Hot Air. They ain’t happy.
Alas, Trent Lott is NOT a “Great American“.
BTW- If Sean Hannity and I were ever on the same page about anything, it would probably be immigration. New laws don’t inspire confidence because we aren’t really enforcing the laws we have now. I’ve always assumed that America is, by law, kind of like a gated community. People can go in and out, but there’s a protocol to be followed. Right now our gates are being overrun. To me that seems like a pretty simple concept, but maybe I just don’t know what the heck I’m talking about (I haven’t read the gazillion-page bill myself).
For the most part, I probably agree a bit with Lott here in a way. Guys like Hannity would repeat statements alleging that the Democrats don’t want us “listening to terrorists” or some other outrageous spin on the topic of the day. These programs just ooze spin. Become a “Dittohead”! Subscribe to the “Medved Memo”! You haven’t been Hannitized! Lets face it, if these on-air pundits aren’t controlling the opinion, they sure as hell make it look like they want to be.
