Rand Paul On The Defense?
The Kentucky Senate race has heated up in the last few weeks as Rand Paul and Jack Conway have continued the battle for retiring Senator Jim Bunning’s seat. “Jack Conway has accused me of kidnapping,” a shocked Paul told Hannity on Monday, “This is absolutely false and he’s a desperate man who really has no honor.” “Where do you feel you are in this race,” asked Hannity, “You’ve had a pretty good margin the whole way.” Paul happily reported, “I think it’s anywhere between seven and ten points but I think these attacks will help because there are still people in our country who believe that a man’s character or religion should be left off limits.”

Pennsylvania Ed Rendell
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell joined Sean to debate the current election cycle. “Democrats ought to stick to the principles that made them Democrats in the first place,” demanded Rendell,” We shouldn’t run and hide from our beliefs.” Hannity jumped on that saying,” The President was selling the stimulus to the American people by suggesting there were many ‘shovel ready’ projects and now the President is saying there’s no such thing as a ‘shovel ready’ project.” Rendell struggled to explain the complicated processes behind how government funded projects are handled. It’s pretty clear that President Obama either lied to the American public or, more likely, simply didn’t understand the process behind government bidding. The question here though is, should a chief executive understand the processes before or after he makes a promise?

Newt Gingrich
Sean was joined by former Speaker Newt Gingrich to discuss the upcoming November election. “Seat after seat is going to fall to the Republicans,” predicted Gingrich, “You’re going to see us pick up in California and Washington and you’ll see us pick up between nine and eleven seats.” Hannity offered his thoughts saying, “These are interesting times and 14 days from tomorrow and predictions don’t mean a thing if you don’t get to the polls.” For more on Newt Gingrich’s election efforts, visit
