The Truth Behind Wisconsin Protests
Sean kicked off Monday’s show by discussing the ongoing protests in Wisconsin. “I want to clear some of the underbrush. One of the largest criticisms of the Wisconsin governor is that he’s union busting. The reality is is that Wisconsin has the strongest civil service system in the country. One that was put in place long before collective bargaining rights were granted to government workers. What the governor wants to do is limit the power of public employee unions to negotiate contracts and work rules which is something that twenty four states already limit or ban. These changes need to be made for competitive reasons and for debt reasons,” Sean concluded. Sean will be interviewing the Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker tonight on ‘Hannity’ at 9pm ET. Make sure to tune in!
Libs Stoop Even Lower
Just when you think liberals could not stoop any lower, they have found a way to outdo themselves. This time, the left is focusing on former radio talk show host and possible 2012 contender, Herman Cain. The blog AlterNet.org posted an article last week criticizing Cain for being a black conservative. The post said, "I find black garbage pail kids, black conservatives fascinating, not because of what they believe but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their white conservative masters. We always need a monkey in the window for he, she, reminds us of our humanity, while simultaneously reinforcing a sense of our own superiority.” The author of this disgusting post wrote another article saying that he firmly stands behind these remarks. Sean was sickened by the article. “Cain has been a friend of mine for a long time. He's brilliant. He's got a great background, he's dynamic and he’s got an incredible personality. Why can’t we just get beyond the issue of race? Why don't we just deal with the issues on their merits?” Sean spoke with Juan Williams about the criticism of Herman Cain.

Against All Odds
Sean welcomed Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown to the program to discuss his new memoir, “Against All Odds.” Brown’s book tells the story of his difficult, often nomadic childhood, shunted from house to apartment, and town to town, seventeen times over his first eighteen years. He somehow managed to thrive, despite an absent father, who married four separate times. So did his mother, in relationships frequently stained with alcohol, anger, and even violence. Brown found solace in basketball which helped him find a way out of his family chaos. He won the starting slot on the Tufts varsity basketball team as a freshman and became the tenth-highest scorer to graduate in the school's history. The book details Brown’s unlikely path that led him to national political stardom. Brown shares a few secrets from his unprecedented Senate race and how he was about to mount such a remarkable victory. For more information on “Against All Odds” please click here.
