Sean: "Newt Won Last Night's Debate"
After an exciting debate last night in South Carolina Sean took the air and gave a complete recap. "I don't care who you're supporting, last night's debate by far was the best." Despite a strong showing by all the candidates, Sean said the winner of last night's debate was Newt Gingrich. Gingrich received a rowdy standing ovation for his back and forth with moderator Juan Williams. Williams asked Gingrich if he could see how his comments about how "black Americans should demand jobs, not food stamps" were viewed, "at a minimum, as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans." "No," Gingrich said, "I don't see that." After Williams pushed Gingrich further on the subject, Newt fired back, "the fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history." "Few Republicans or Conservatives would disagree that Gingrich hit it out of the park last night," Sean said. "I think last night Gingrich showed he has the courage to stand up and take those kind of attacks and then he has the intellectual and rhetorical firepower to wade into the hot button topic and carry the day," Sean added.

Romney Sticks To Story On Super PAC Ads
Sean spoke with presidential candidate Mitt Romney after last night's debate on a special 'Hannity' and asked about the issue of Super PACs - specifically the palpable anger from the other candidates at Romney's supporting Super PAC. Romney fell short of denouncing the Super PACs but did say the whole concept of them don't make much sense. "Look, this whole idea that there are these organizations out there that run ads that we, as candidates, can't even talk to, can't tell them what to do and what not to do -- it's an outrageous setting, and it makes us all uncomfortable," Romney told Sean. However Romney did agree that any ad that is factually incorrect should be removed. "Anything that's inaccurate -- and I said this in the last debate -- they should take them off the air," Romney explained.

Adam Carolla On "Paying Your Fair Share"
Radio personality and comedian Adam Carolla joined the last hour of the show and talked about what he thinks is wrong with the ever growing class warfare issue in America. Sean discussed the notion of "paying your fair share" - an idea Obama has championed in numerous speeches over the last few months. "Let's really examine this," Carolla told Sean. "If 10 people all go out to dinner together and the bill came and it was $500 and we decided to split it up 10 ways, then your share is $50. Unless you had 26 Heineken's that I don't know about, your fair share with the other 9 strangers your sitting with, considering you've all ordered the same thing off of the same menu is $50! I paid the equivalent of $450 in taxes last year! And I've got the 2 guys who paid nothing pointing at me and telling me to pay my fair share?! You've got to be kidding me," Carolla exclaimed. Adam also discussed his new book, "Rich Man Poor Man" in which he exposes the phenomena that are embraced by the really rich and the really poor - but never the middle class - like having an outdoor shower, wearing your pajamas all day, or always having your dog with you. Carolla's new book is a hilariously accurate look at what the people born with silver spoons in their mouths have in common with the people whose only utensils are plastic sporks stolen from a Shakey's.
