Osama bin Laden's Porn Stash

Osama bin Laden's Porn Stash?
As Sean took the Friday airwaves news broke that officials combing through evidence retrieved from Osama bin Laden’s compound found he had a stash of pornography {Article}. According to anonymous U.S. officials, Obama’s porn collection consisted of modern, electronically recorded video and was fairly extensive. “If there is not an irony in all of this,” Sean said jokingly, “but I’m really getting a kick out of this. But really, how dumb is it that the U.S. keeps releasing information about what we uncovered at the compound? Why would we let the entire Al-Qaeda network know we have all this information? How dumb is that? If we really have a treasure trove of information why don’t we just tell the world we didn’t take anything?” The other ironic piece to all of this is the fact that the U.S. did not want to release photographic evidence of Osama’s death because they felt it would inflame tensions in the Middle East and Muslim world. Interesting because releasing information about Osama’s porn collection and use of herbal Viagra certainly doesn’t sound like the kind of news that would placate an already tumultuous region.

Is Sean A Thug?
Media personality Stephen A. Smith joined the second hour of the show and spoke about comments hip hop mogul Russell Simmons made, accusing Sean of being “more gangsta than Snoop Dogg.” {Article} “You’re definitely more gangsta than Snoop,” Stephen A. told Sean. “These rappers like Eminem, Jay Z, etc. can make their albums and sing their songs and they’re incredibly popular. But you don’t want to get in the way of the eye of the storm - Sean Hannity. You’re empowered Sean,” Smith described. “When you set your sights on somebody you really, really go after them,” Stephen A. explained. “You can come across as thuggish or gangsta, because you have those qualities deep down inside of you and you are unrelenting,” Smith said. “You have to be out of your mind,” Sean laughed. “I’m probably the most boring person you’ll ever meet – I don’t even know what gangsta means!” Is Sean really “gangsta?” Head on over to and cast your vote in the poll question of the day!

Surveying The Presidential Field
Sean spoke with syndicated columnist Mark Steyn on last night’s ‘Hannity’ about the GOP field for the 2012 presidential race. Steyn was adamant that Newt Gingrich didn’t stand much of a chance of being elected. “Newt isn't going to be president. I assume he's in this campaign for the kind of reason Alan Keyes used to get into it 10 years ago, that it's a way of boosting his speaking fees and other gigs. But Newt Gingrich is not going to be president, and I didn't see the rationale for his candidacy.” Steyn felt more positive about Romney’s chances although the problems surrounding “Romneycare” might be his undoing. “Romney passed this big technocratic solution to the [health care problem in Massachusetts] and then the massive bureaucracy and opportunistic legislative class destroyed all the accomplishments and made the situation worse,” said Steyn.
