The Democratic Party's Uncle Billy
Sean kicked off Thursday's show with an analogy between former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and a character from the Christmas classic " It's A Wonderful Life." "In the movie Jimmy Stewart runs a small bank in Bedford Falls and everything is going along fine until poor Uncle Billy goes ahead and loses eight thousand dollars in depositors' cash. Well former would-be Obama Treasury Secretary Jon Corzine just became the Democratic Party's Uncle Billy," Sean exclaimed. Except in Corzine's case he lost $1.2 BILLION dollars in cash - not eight thousand like Billy Bailey in the 1946 Christmas film. "Another crony, corrupt Wall Street buddy of Obama. The same Wall Street that donated all that money to Obama. The same Wall Street that got all the government bailouts - it was Obama that gave them the money!"

Palin: Quit Attacking Each Other And Focus On Obama
Things are trending in the right direction for the Republican presidential contenders. A brand new poll indicates that if the election were held today, a generic GOP challenger would easily defeat Barack Obama. According to the Rasmussen survey, 49 percent of U.S. voters would support the Republican candidate and only 41 percent say they would cast their ballots for the incumbent. This is the largest margin of victory for the GOP on the generic ballot in more than three months. In addition, the same survey shows the Republicans are leading in several key swing states, including Ohio and Florida. Sean was joined by former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin for her take on the latest developments in the 2012 race for the White House. Palin warned that whichever GOP contender Republicans chose, he needs to be laser focused on removing Obama from office. "We have to make sure the candidate that emerges from this GOP primary understands that we want passion, that we want fiery, not just rhetoric, but solutions that are proposed and experiences been expressed to make sure that we undo what Obama has done to this country," Palin cautioned. "We need to make sure our candidate is vetted and ready to go, and I would advise our candidates to remember to focus on the problems that Barack Obama has caused this country. Quit nitpicking at each other." To watch Sean's interview with Palin please click here.

Pollster Frank Luntz joined Sean in the show's final hour with an interesting new poll he's conducting. "Right now on WayIn.com we're polling you Sean," Luntz explained. "If you go to that website we're trying to figure out if people like you better on radio or television, if your listeners prefer Gingrich or Romney and if your listeners plan on voting in the primaries." If you go to wayin.com you can find out if Sean's audience loves his face on tv or is voice on radio. Sean got a kick out of the news and was curious himself how people would vote.

Joseph Isadore "Joe" Lieberman (born February 24, 1942) is the junior United States Senator from Connecticut. First elected to the Senate in 1988, Lieberman was elected to a fourth term on November 7, 2006. In the 2000 United States presidential election, Lieberman was the Democratic nominee for Vice President, running with presidential nominee Al Gore, becoming the first Jewish candidate on a major American political party presidential ticket. The Gore–Lieberman ticket won the popular vote but ultimately failed to gain the electoral votes needed to win the controversial election. Lieberman ran for re-election to the U.S. Senate while he was also Gore's running mate, and he was re-elected by the voters of Connecticut. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2004 presidential election.
