JASON MATTERA, AUTHOR, "OBAMA ZOMBIES": Hey, Senator Franken, Jason Mattera. Appreciate your remarks in there. You were awesome.

SEN. AL FRANKEN, D-MINN.: Thank you.

MATTERA: I was wondering, which portions of the health care bill lower costs? Is it the provision giving $7 billion to fund jungle gyms, or the provision mandating employers provide time off for breast feeding?

FRANKEN: I — give me the jungle gyms.

MATTERA: Right here, the jungle gyms...

FRANKEN: Yes.

MATTERA: ... is on 1-1-8-4.

FRANKEN: Yes, show it to me right now.

MATTERA: OK. To provide physical activity opportunities, promote healthy lifestyle. So why is that the job of the federal government?

FRANKEN: OK. Now, let me...

MATTERA: Why is it the job of the federal government, and — to create an army of monkey bars? Go ahead. Answer.

FRANKEN: No, no. You have...

MATTERA: Go ahead, answer it.

FRANKEN: You have to shut up right now

MATTERA: I'm sorry.

FRANKEN: … and listen to me...

MATTERA: Go ahead.

FRANKEN: ... instead of interrupting me every time I say something.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Wow. That was Jason Mattera's recent account with Minnesota Senator Al Franken on Capitol Hill, and he's the author of the brand-new book, "Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation" and the media spokesman for the Young America's Foundation. A great foundation.

Jason Mattera, that is priceless. That is priceless.

MATTERA: I appreciate being on the program.

HANNITY: You have to shut up, let me answer.

MATTERA: If you have Al Franken or Senator Smalley that's exactly what he said, "Shut up." When you have a person going up and questioning him on important contents of the bill. And as your viewer just saw, he had no idea of these certain provisions. And that's what we need to confront these corrupt politicians and make them justify every single line in these 2,000-page bills.

HANNITY: And you were literally reading from the bill to him.

MATTERA: Reading from the bill. And then you know what? They try to...

HANNITY: I don't know. I didn't read it.

MATTERA: They tried to spin it and spin it, and they turned faster than Rahm Emanuel in his ballet shoes. I mean, they do not know what's in their own bill and they're voting for. This is why Americans are boiling mad.

HANNITY: Is Rahm "Rahmbo Dead Fish," is he still doing the ballet?

MATTERA: He's definitely doing that hope a dope mantra, that certainly drove young people to vote for Barack Obama in large margins. And now they're paying —

HANNITY: I used the term Obamamania. And I define it as the hypnotic trance, the feeling of omnipotent ecstasy and euphoria at the sight of the Anointed One during the campaign. People, like, fell into a trance. You're right.

MATTERA: They put Barack Obama on a pedestal reserved for no mere mortal, as though he was going to drop iPods from the heavens and melt away their student loans forever.

HANNITY: Did you hear the one man-on-the-street this week? I don't have to worry about paying my mortgage again. I don't have to worry about putting gas in my tank. That was after he got elected.

MATTERA: Of course. Because the evil rich white people like you, Sean, they're going to pay for all their stuff.

HANNITY: Sixty percent of my income.

All right. You confronted Alan Grayson, this guy outside of Orlando. Let's watch this tape.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MATTERA: What provisions, what portions of the health care bill do you think Americans like better? Would it be the...

REP. ALAN GRAYSON, D-FLA.: Actually, the part that we just introduced scores highest in polls, people love the idea of being able to buy into Medicare.

MATTERA: Medicare, really. What about the —

GRAYSON: The poll I saw said 72 percent favor it, something like that?

MATTERA: What about the — what about the House — there's a House portion that provides funding for Native American child molesters, and the Senate portion that provides — that mandates —

GRAYSON: Oh God, are you a kook?

MATTERA: No, this is in the bill.

GRAYSON: Are you a kook? Because you're starting to sound like it.

MATTERA: I'm… this is in your bill that you voted for.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: In the bill?

MATTERA: These dudes don't even know what they're voting for. There's a provision, as I point out, documentation, you can go to YouTube.com and put in my name. And I provide it all. There's a portion of the House bill they voted for in November that gives funding for rehabilitation programs for Native American child molesters. Now how is that going to lower costs, Sean? How is that going to bring down premiums?

He calls me a kook. If there was a kook barometer in Congress, it would go Dennis Kucinich and then Alan Grayson.

HANNITY: Alan Grayson is in trouble. And I think — isn't that Allen West, district in — I think he's going to beat him.

All right, the chief propagandist in the White House, Robert Gibbs. Let's roll the tape.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MATTERA: If President Obama in 2005 said it was unconstitutional and a power grab for majoritarian rule to sidstep the filibuster, and yet right now the Democrats in Congress are doing the same thing.

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: You got your camera here, and you're confused about the issue.

MATTERA: I'm not confused brother. I ain't confused. I know you guys, you guys say it's confusing, because you're looking to institute a power grab by Washington —

GIBBS: No, again —

MATTERA: …with the government takeover of health care.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: They all said it was unconstitutional.

MATTERA: Back in 2005. And this is why I wrote "Obama Zombies," is because there with were so many young people that got bamboozled. Their brains were robbed by the bushel, because they actually believed that Obama was going to change the kind of process of Washington, bring transparency. And what do we have here, the most divisive, the most opaque administration, the most radical administration in American history. If conservatives don't jolt these Obama zombies from their brainless slumber, then, we will...

HANNITY: I think — I think the American people are waking up.

MATTERA: They are.

HANNITY: The American people are there. This video like you're doing helps.

MATTERA: It does help. But the legacy of President Reagan is going to be undermined. And we're going to go back to an era of Jimmy Carter foolishness if we don't continue to fight.

HANNITY: Obama, in my mind, is Jimmy Carter in steroids. And I will tell you, he's going to go down in history as one of the worst presidents in American history.

Now, let me run one more tape. We've got you with Jim Moran, real quick here.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. JIM MORAN, D-VA.: There isn't any 12th district.

MATTERA: I know, but it got stimulus money.

MORAN: The 12th district?

MATTERA: That's what I'm trying to say, are you guys, liberals, any apologetic you created policies —

UNIDENTIFIED AIDE: He's just saying it was posted on a Web site.

MORAN: Oh, it was posted.

MATTERA: Yeah, it was posted.

MORAN: Well there isn't any… that's regrettable.

MATTERA: No, it was, like, billions…

MORAN: That's a clerical error…

MATTERA: Billions of dollars went to like 450 districts that didn't exist.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

MATTERA: The brother wanted to fight me. He was lunging at me twice for asking about stimulus money that went for — to phantom districts, districts that didn't even exist. Young people are being pinched in this Obama economy.

HANNITY: You're going to continue to...

MATTERA: We're going to continue to fight back.

HANNITY: You're going to continue to confront these guys?

MATTERA: Absolutely, cameras in their faces. We've got to make — we've got to hold their feet to the fire, brother.

HANNITY: "Obama Zombies," Jason Mattera. Good to see you, my friend.

MATTERA: Fist bump — Obama fist bump.

HANNITY: You got it.
