A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Give, Give, Give

First lady Michelle Obama made a great sacrifice on behalf of you, the American people! Well, at least she thinks so.

Mrs. Obama traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark, to help the president lobby to bring the 2016 Olympics to Chicago. She told the crowd assembled there that, "As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or for Oprah, or for the president to come these few days, so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home."

She went on to say that having the Olympics in Chicago would "let people know that we understand that sports saves lives... that it creates visions in kids' heads to make them think that they could be the next David Robinson, the next Barack Obama, the next Nadya Comaneci, the next Oprah Winfrey."

A Chicago Olympics will inspire a child to become the next Barack Obama? I think I'm going to pass on this.

Grand Finale?

The Meltdown may shed some light on why President Barack Obama is so concerned with bringing the 2016 Olympics to his hometown of Chicago; there's a chance this could be the last Olympics ever!

At least that is what the governor of Tokyo, Japan, Shintaro Ishihara told reporters Wednesday, saying, "Global warming is getting much worse... It could be that the 2016 games are the last Olympics in the history of mankind."

I don't know, Governor, that sounds a little extreme to me.


It is a big day for the peanut-farming President Jimmy Carter. The Carter Center and Library, a museum devoted to chronicling the life of the former president, is reopening after major renovations. And I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear that it devotes more space than any other presidential library to a president's post-White House life.

Carter told the Associated Press, "We want to present the truth about every aspect of my past experiences... to let people get an insight on what a former president might do when they're involuntarily retired from the White House four years before they anticipated."

Mr. President, you thought you were going to be a two-termer against Ronald Reagan?

I think that's exactly the delusional thinking that sort of made you such a bad commander in chief.

Happy Anniversary!

As we reported Wednesday right here in New York City, a bizarre tribute to the 60th anniversary of Communist China was visible in the Big Apple skyline. The iconic Empire State Building was lit in red and yellow, but that's not exactly how others marked the country's six decades of communism.

In Nepal and Hong Kong, demonstrators took to the streets in protest of China's abysmal human rights record, and a massive display of military force in Beijing paraded through the Chinese capital.

That's a comforting thought. I'm so glad we were able to join in the celebration in the United States for the Communist Chinese.
