A quick trip around Hannity's America...
Liberals are painting a rosy picture of what the world will look like when the government takes over your health care. But home video of former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich has been unearthed, and it shows him talking candidly about what the Democrats really had in store for you:
(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)
ROBERT REICH, FORMER LABOR SECRETARY, OCTOBER 27, 2007: This is what the truth is and what a candidate will never say but what a candidate should say... We are going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive. So we're going to let you die.

I guess Alan Grayson was wrong when he said it was the Republicans who want to let you die quickly.
The left-wing Democrat who accused Republicans of wanting sick Americans to "die quickly" is at it again. Florida Congressman Alan Grayson continues to stand by his comments, despite objections from both sides of the aisle.
Take a look at his response when his absurd radical rhetoric was compared to Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED MSNBC ANCHOR: When you say you die, you lie, you die — isn't it all rhetoric? I mean, where does the logic come in?
REP. ALAN GRAYSON, D-FLA.: No, it's not. Look, comparing — no, that's nonsense. Comparing what Joe Wilson did to what I did, it's not the same. What I did is like a Bob Dylan protest song. What Joe Wilson did is like a belch.

Just when I thought he couldn't get any more arrogant, he proves me wrong.
Testing the Waters?
The key primary state of Iowa continues to roll out the red carpet for political heavyweights ahead of the 2012 election.
Former New York Governor George Pataki has raised some eyebrows after he announced plans to make yet another trip to Iowa. According to the Quad City Times, Governor Pataki will take to the podium and make the keynote address at the Republican Party's Ronald Reagan dinner in November.
It looks like the field to unseat the "anointed one" in 2012 could get pretty crowded.
Sporkful of Trouble
It looks like some school officials think 6 years old is the perfect age to start the learning lessons of political correctness.
Delaware boy Zachary Christie learned the hard way this week when he brought to school his spork — a combination of a knife, spoon and fork — to eat his lunch. He was suspended and sent to a reform school for 45 days. He got the utensil, by the way, in the Cub Scouts.
Zachary's mom was very upset, because he's "a pretty good student." Debbie Christie said, "Zachary wears a suit and tie to school some days by his own choice because he takes school so seriously."
He sounds like a pretty serious threat. So glad the school took care of that little boy.
