If anyone was wondering, the new kiss-off “sorry, no consolation prize for you,” song on American Idol is called “Hollywood isn’t America,” and it would seem Sean Hannity agrees.
If anyone was wondering about the relevancy of that information, I would like to:
1) ask that they wait for all to be revealed in the blinding light of my brilliance, and
2) inform you all that this is not, in fact, JJ, but her “Favorite Daughter,” which seems to be the name by which I am best known, despite the fact that I, personally, never refer to myself as such.
JJ is presently “on assignment,” as the reporters say, and by “on assignment,” I mean “running errands in the car while listening to The Sean Hannity Show.”
I keep telling her not to do this, it can only end in tragedy. Sean Hannity is probably one of the leading causes of road rage in this country, at least for anyone who has a functional frontal lobe.
(Note: I have no problem with conservatives per se, I have a problem with illogic!)
Anyway, my mom JJ was listening to the show just now, and apparently a thirteen-year-old boy called in. Presumably after beginning with the creepy and obligatory greeting of, “Hi, Sean, you’re a great American,” he informed Hannity that he’d just received an email that said homeschooling was now illegal in the state of California.
I like to imagine the sound of this call: how tearily the boy must have whispered, “Help, Sean. Help.”
Also, I really hope this kid isn’t homeschooled, because he’s doing a fabulous job of displaying his lack of critical thinking skills. That’s just the publicity we all need, Sean Hannity and “I read it in a chain email, it must be true!” kid.
Please, don’t help us.
Anyway, Hannity then proceeds to rant about how this was yet another move by commie-pinko-sex-ed-teaching-movie-making-Scientology-believing California to stamp out Jesus or something.
I wasn’t there, but I can infer.
Anyway, Hannity continues to rant about California outlawing homeschooling for about the next half hour, despite the fact that California has not outlawed homeschooling.
Nice verification of sources, Sean. I’m not sure which is stupider, “I read it on the internet, therefore it must be true,” or “A random thirteen-year-old I’ve never talked to in my life read it on the internet, therefore it must be true.”
Probably the latter.
But it gets worse – I’ve just been informed that NPR has announced that there was a ruling about the legality of homeschooling in California, and they will be covering it as it develops. NPR for Godssakes.
Anyway, this has been fun, we should all do it again sometime. I’m sure JJ will be back within the next hour or two to explain it much more eloquently.
