I usually don't do politics at COT.
But like many, I was outraged at the lack of political and moral resolve by so many, including our President, concerning illegal immigration as represented in the shamnesty bill that was fortunately defeated last week. I am so grateful and proud of the power of the "new media" (i.e. Rush, Hannity, Ingraham, Levine, Malkin, etc.) that heard from and influenced the hoi polloi to raise their "loud voices" contributing to the defeat of the Shamnesty Bill that President Bush and members of Congress from both parties were trying to pass by stealth against the majority moorings of the American people.
I am a political conservative by conviction; and that is why lately, it has been discouraging to see the Republican Party, including President Bush, acting not with the courage that principled conservativism breeds, but with all the watered-down alacrity of a Ted Kennedy songfest.
One of my favorite commentators is and has been Sean Hannity. Listen to this audio of him sparing with Senator Voinovich.
To quote Allahpundit of HotAIR:
"This clip ought to push those confidence-in-Congress poll numbers into single digits, assuming they’re not there already.Enjoy.
He also appears to have only the vaguest sense of what the Fairness Doctrine is. Rest easy tonight knowing that in these capable hands may rest the fate of the nation’s immigration policy."
