Sean’s New Gig: Wedding Planner?
Sean kicked off Friday’s show with a shocking revelation: he watched the royal wedding this morning! Sean hates weddings and this news clearly caught the Hannity staff off guard. “I don’t even know you anymore,” said lead engineer Jason, filling in for Greg. “Are you gonna become a wedding planner next?” he jokingly teased Sean. “Why is there such shock that I watched part of the wedding? I know I’ve said that I don’t like weddings but its part of my job to know what’s happening around me. This was a massive event and was supposedly watched by two billion people.” Show producer Lynda jumped in commenting on how good the music was. “The music was the best part,” she said. “They played the best classical pieces.” Sean disagreed, “You’re the music expert Lynda, but I was hoping they’d play a little Guns n’ Roses and rock that place out,” Sean said laughing. “Can you imagine the shocked look on the Queen’s face?” You can listen to the goodhearted ribbing Sean received from his staff by clicking here.
Violent Storms Ravage South
Dozens of tornadoes spawned by a powerful storm system wiped out entire towns across a wide portion of the U.S., killing nearly three hundred people in the deadliest outbreak in nearly forty years. “Everyone who has been victims in this I want you to know that this country is thinking about you,” Sean said. Sean applauded Obama for traveling down south and touring the destruction. “Federal help I know will be coming, but just to see entire neighborhoods completely wiped out is just awful. Two hundred and fifty tornadoes formed down there with destruction estimated to be in the billions. It’s unbelievable. When you see the devastation it’s hard to imagine how anybody survived.” As many as a million homes and businesses in Alabama were without power, and Alabama Gov. Bentley said 2,000 National Guard troops had been activated to help. The governors of Mississippi and Georgia also issued emergency declarations for parts of their states.

Right Direction or Wrong Track?
Sean mentioned the latest polling numbers by Rasmussen Reports that shows only twenty-one percent of Americans believe the U.S. is on the right track. It’s the fourth week in a row that the measurement has gone down, with confidence in the nation’s course now reaching the lowest point of the Obama presidency. Scott Rasmussen joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss his latest poll findings. You can listen to the entire interview for free by clicking right here!
