Audio: Sean Hannity Interviews “Smart-Ass” Frozen Custard Shop Owner

This afternoon on his radio show, Hannity interviewed the Milwaukee Kopp’s Frozen Custard manager who told Joe (Bite Me) Biden to “Lower our Taxes”, only to have an angry Biden smack him down, and call him a “smart-Ass”.

He admits that “it was a little strange to have someone second in charge in the United States…do something like that”.

I think Hannity is right. He came back later to apologize, and make nice,  only after a staffer had reminded him that cameras were rolling, and his nastiness was not going to go over too well with the American people.


Custard shop owner,  Scott Borkin also appeared on The Greta Van Susteren Show, tonight. Video at Gateway Pundit.

I’ve been studiously avoiding the Dave Weigel brouhaha, ( who cares), but Byron York has a good question:

Why does Washington Post need a reporter to cover conservatives?

Yeah, really…like we’re some exotic species that requires anthropological study. Good grief, if they really feel that they have to do that, can’t it be someone who doesn’t already despise us?

Ed Driscoll’s clearly enjoying the story: Welcome to East Germany on the Potomac

Peter Wehner at Commentary: Our Petulant President

Oh no he DIDN’T!:

In Politico we read:

Obama chastised what he dubbed a current “obsession” over a timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops. “My focus right now is how do we make sure what we’re doing there is successful,” he said. “By next year we will begin a transition.”


How about not imposing ridiculous timetables on troop withdrawal, and repeatedly speaking about it, if you don’t want people “obsessing” about it.


Hundreds Protest AZ Congressman Raul Grijalva

What Congressman in his right mind encourages citizens of other states to boycott the state he represents? He’d pretty much have to be a Democrat, huh?

Meet Congressman Raul Grijalva, (with friend), the subject of a tea party protest, Saturday, June 26th:

KGUN9 Tucson reported:

Hundreds protest Grijalva

Grijalva’s been pushing for an economic boycott of his own state since the governor signed the immigration law. Grijalva is up for re-election this November and people who we met today are determined to unseat him. A big crowd gathered in front of Grijalva’s office Saturday morning.

These folks are also upset about Grijalva’s backing of the Arizona boycott.

“It’s what the truth seems to be. His job is to represent Arizona and represent the people but at the moment he seems to be resenting Arizona and working against them,” David Rackey, a tea party supporter, said.

KGUN 9 News asked the chairman of the Pima County Republican Party if he thinks this rally will help Grijalva change his position on the boycott issue.

“No I don’t think so but he needs to know how we feel about it,” Bob Westerman said.

There’s also a video at the site.

Someone  had a question for Greg Harris of the Pima County Republican Party. This “reporter” was very concerned that one of the protesters was heard calling Grijalva a racist,  and he grilled Harris about it. Harris rightly responded that the word has lost all meaning….(thanks to Democrats):

I mean HELLO!, Mr. left-wing citizen journalist! If you want to do a story about unfair “name-calling”, how about heading down to MSNBC studios, or the Democrat (Socialist) black caucus in Congress…if you’re seriously that concerned about idiots throwing out unfair, unjustified epithets at people….. One lone whacko with a bullhorn does not a front page story, (or a viral YouTube hit) make. A Congressman urging boycotts against his own state… that’s a story.


You would think the  blatant and obvious hypocrisy would be enough to shame most people from posting such utter bullcrap. But no.


Here’s Republican candidate Ruth McClung:

The same interviewer tries to grill her about the guy who said “racist”. He’s  obsessed with the deal. She made the same point I did (above) about people calling tea partiers racists, and SURPRISE! – it’s okay with him when that happens because of course, the tea partiers ARE racists! Hint to Ms. McClung: Next time someone pulls the “But- but- but- there have been racist incidents with the tea party”, make him cite examples, and then laugh in his face when he mentions the March 20 anti-ObamaCare “spittlegate” non- incident in Washington DC, and “tea party founder” who was rejected by the Houston tea party organizers on day one.

Hat tip: Infidel Joe.

Rolling Thunder And A Marine’s Vigil

This video would have been perfect for Memorial Day, but I hadn’t seen it then, and I’ll be doggoned if I’m going to wait another 11 months to show you this gem.

A solitary Marine holds vigil at full attention for hours, during the 2010 Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in tribute to fallen comrades.

Grab some kleenex:

A commenter at YouTube, (DizziNY) asked:
My question is why is there only ONE person from the military there? Barry Sotoreo dislikes our military women and men. He has no respect or love for America.

Sgt Chambers explained himself in the comments:

This was a wild hair thing to do on my own accord, Why do people instantly think “why” like your question about more military out there. To begin with Rolling Thunder is a demonstration ride, so to have active duty supporting it in uniform is not going to happen. My salute was never for Rolling Thunder, it is to honor all the sacrifices America has made, along with demonstrate compassion and be a direct reflection of the heart and love Service Members have for humanity……..

SSgt Tim Chambers posted this video of a speech in Little Rock Arkansas about why he did the salute.

I gave this speech prior to the Memorial Day before last on my way across country where I honored families that lost their loved ones and Vets, along with concerned citizens and conducted name readings………. Sorry not the best quality but i do have it bright as day on my computer just need to figure out how to edit it.

One thing I may run out of is ammo – but not hugs.

This soldier stands tall.

Hat tip: Geeeeez! (Love that name)!
