A quick trip around Hannity's America...
Bad With Numbers
Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd is no stranger to scandal, but the latest news is shocking even by the senator's own standards.
Recently, many have charged that Dodd has not been straightforward about the value of his 10-acre waterfront home in Ireland. Since 2002 he listed the value of the home at $250,000. In February his office changed that to $127,000. In March, Dodd told The Hartford Current he paid $177,000 for the home. In May he told Newsweek he paid $207,000.
Acording to the senator's most recent financial disclosure form, the cottage is actually worth $658,000.
The Irish real estate market by the way crashed two years ago, bringing prices to historic lows.
The Meltdown is brought to you by the Obama White House, who issued a new global warming report that takes the politics of fear to new heights.
The report attempts to scare the public into thinking sweeping reforms are needed in order to stop deadly droughts, floods and everything in between. But according to ClimateDepot.com, the report is being heavily criticized by climate experts who are calling it pseudo science and scaremongering — even accusing the president of hiring a PR firm in order to embellish its findings.
I guess the president isn't going to let science stand in the way of appeasing the radical left-wing of the Democratic Party.
Dawn of a New Era
One of red state America's all-time favorite movies is making a return to the big screen.
The Web site HollywoodReporter.com says that casting is now underway for the remake of "Red Dawn." The original version was released at the height of the Cold War during the 1980s, starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen.
The new version is set to hit theaters in September of 2010, and will once again portray a group of young teens known collectively as the Wolverines, who are fighting to save their hometown from an invasion by Soviet forces.
Be sure to check your calendars for the return of this classic Regan-era film.
Not a Hard Choice
The Miami-Dade school board in Florida is naming a new high school. The choice came down to former Attorney General Janet Reno — who served as Miami-Dade's state attorney before becoming the country's first female attorney general — and NBA star Alonzo Mourning.
According to The Miami Herald, the title is going to Mr. Mourning and his wife Tracy. Mourning is popular in the area because he played for the Miami Heat. Reno on the other hand is not so well-liked. Her decision to send six-year-old Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba in 2000 didn't win her many friends in south Florida.
It looks like the Miami-Dade school board made a wise decision. A big congratulations to Alonzo and Traci Mourning.
