Black Friday Off To A Violent Start
Guest host Mark Simone took the Hannity microphone and discussed the news of a woman who pepper sprayed her way to the front of a Black Friday line to "gain the upper hand." The attack took place early in the morning at a Walmart near Los Angeles. The store had brought out a crate of discounted Xbox video game players, and a crowd had formed to wait for the unwrapping, when the woman began spraying people "in order to get an advantage," police Sgt. Jose Valle said. "It's been quite a Black Friday. You know they say things like 'door buster sales' - they need to stop with the violent names for everything!" Simone joked. "It felt like the twilight zone walking around New York City late last night with all the stores staying open twenty-four hours," Mark said commenting on many retailers' efforts to boost sales in this sagging Obama economy.

Ann Coulter Discusses OWS
Conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter joined Mark in the show's second hour to discuss the Occupy Wall Street movement. Protesters from the movement attempted to take on the biggest retail day of the season -- Black Friday -- by occupying Walmarts and other top retailers across the country from New York to Honolulu. "This is the most vague, all-over-the-map protest I've ever seen - and they don't even have the right city!" Simone exclaimed. Coulter agreed. "They're even protesting the wrong street. None of the banks are on Wall Street anymore. However, I did not think [OWS] would sweep the nation," Coulter added. "Once you get a mob 'ginned up', even if there is some theoretical point, the logic quickly dissipates because people in a group of a mob can't be reasoned with. It just becomes meaningless slogans - which is somewhat like the Democratic Party when it's operating at its highest level," Coulter told Simone.

What Are Republican Women Looking For In 2012?
Earlier this week on 'Hannity' Sean spoke with pollster Frank Luntz in Iowa who put together a special focus group of Republican moms. One issue that stood out amongst several of the women was our country's mounting debt. "I think the debt situation for kids today is scary of what these kids are going to be faced with then, when they're at our age. And it was just reported that we are over $15 trillion in debt now as a nation. And I have heard that Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million a year in federal money. That to me is a no- brainer. Why would we even support an organization that's the largest abortion provider in the country?" a GOP panelist told Sean and Frank Luntz.
