Subject: Sean Hannity responds, kinda, sorta
Last night, during "Hannity & Colmes" on FoxNews, Sean Hannity got a sour look on his face and said something like the following . . .
"Ron Paul won the text messaging poll after last night's debate, but you may be surprised to hear who our focus groups said won." (It was John McCain.)
We report this, it's up to you to decide if it's enough that Hannity acknowledged Ron Paul's victory in the text messaging poll. Does it make up for the fact that he implied the night before that Paul supporters gamed the poll by calling in repeatedly?
If it's not enough for you then you might want to send a message to Mr. Hannity asking him to fully and formally retract his earlier misstatement. Paul supporters did not game the poll because repeat calls were blocked. If you still think Mr. Hannity needs to say more you can send him a message here.
But if what Mr. Hannity said is enough for you, then please consider taking another step in the cause of smaller government.
More than 250 new people have registered to use the Downsize DC system in the past 24 hours. More than 5,000 messages have been sent to Mr. Hannity and FoxNews. We have penetrated the FoxNews echo-chamber and got their attention. But Sean Hannity isn't the only person living in a false world of his own imaginings. There are also 534 people in Congress (minus Ron Paul), most of whom have similar problems.
DownsizeDC.org pounds Congress repeatedly, day-after-day, urging them to move in the direction of smaller government. We want those who joined us yesterday to know that we have so far hit Congress with more than 750,000 Downsize DC messages. Please add your voice to ours.
One of our projects is the "Read the Bills Act." This is legislation we crafted to reform Congress. It would force Congress to actually read their bills before they vote on them. It would also require Congress to post legislation on the web for seven days before a vote is held, so that citizens will also have a chance to read them.
Please join us in urging Congress to pass this legislation. You can send your message here.
Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
