One More Reason

I should have met Sean Hannity today. I thought it was written in the stars. Instead, it turned out to be just another day when I didn't get arrested for assault.

Hannity was in the building where I work today. He was broadcasting his radio show from one of the production studios. All day, whenever anyone unfamiliar walked by, all heads would swivel. It isn't that we all don't know what Hannity looks like, we just weren't sure what form he would take. At one moment I was sure I had spotted him. A clutch of suits moved quickly down the hall opposite my desk, the room seemed to get colder, and there was a slight whiff of burning sulfur in the air. Turns out it was just a government official with bad gas, and that someone had opened the door to the studio. Damn it.

It was around 11am when we learned of Hannity's exact coordinates. He was across the hall, doing a meet and greet. A meet and greet in a studio anyone with a key card would seemingly have access to. I have such a key card. They didn't even ask my political leaning when they gave it to me. I grabbed my camera, my trusty boy wonder Albert, and off we went, ready to meet our destinies.

Little did we know there was a list. A list neither Albert or I had any chance of being on. A list guarded by a police officer. And that police officer didn't care who we were, or that Albert was making this face:

I stole this picture off Albert's family blog.
We were not trying to meet Hannity in an open field.


Doesn't that face just melt your heart? I guess Hannity and his list wielding thugs just don't have hearts to melt.

It isn't bad enough that Sean Hannity is a lying, pandering to the lowest common denominator for money, hatemonger, but now he has disappointed Albert. MY Albert.


Next time, Hannity. Next time.

Albert nooooooooo!

My hubby said he wanted Hannity's autograph. I said there wasn't enough money in the world to get me to ask for one.

We don't talk politics at home.

I don't mind Hannity so much-- now Beck is another matter entirely. And I can't stand when O'Reiley has Dennis Miller on-- I can't decide who is the more pompous asshole but I swear there is thinly veiled sexual tension between them.

My husband watches a lot of Fox News. I've been trying to get him into couples counseling about it.

Next time, yes!

You talk about the things you do for family - I posed for a picture with two high-profile Republicans in one day just for my political family. Who are Democrats ;)

I'm amazed that the heavies could resist that pout!

At least you didn't have to punch him in the male region for being such a d*ck. See? There's an upside. Meg got to see her mom come home.

But Albert DID look sad. And for THAT, I hate Hannity EVEN more. (Even IF that picture wasn't from yesterday....)

I think you need to have a shaman come cleanse the building now, right?

I adore the photo. That was a really cute post and, I must say, I'm glad things worked out the way they did...isn't it great to be home?

Next time... next time!

Lulu said...

ahhhhhh..........thank you. Thank you! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!! I had a moment to check the blogosphere and ran here (can you run in the 'sphere?) to read.....so bloggy good to my soul!

Sorry, I've been away for a while and struggling to get caught up.

So umm. thanks again. In a non-stalky kind of way.

And thank Meg too, for her cuteness.

Who could turn down that face? As you say, next time...NEXT TIME!!

Happy Easter, Chica!

just making my way said...

That is a very sad face on Albert. If Hannity is ever there again I suggest a covert mission where one of you sends in some pastries that fell on the floor. Or something.

So, what would you have said to him?:)

Catherine said...

who cares about Hannity....I want more dirt on Albert. Anyone who can make that face on cue must have something up their sleeve.
