After many long months, Congressman Ron Paul received the “You’re a great American” treatment on the Sean Hannity Show. In a wild turn of events for the smiley-faced neocon, Hannity appeared to show a somewhat genuine appreciation for Dr. Paul’s work, and lifetime of service- in spite of the two’s baggage from the past. This was risky, of course, since perhaps some Hannity listeners might recognize an authentic voice for true conservatism. A generally friendly, agreeable interview about TSA policy ensued, despite the host’s propensity for right-wing statism and uniform worship. Dr. Paul thanked Sean for being nice to Rand during the campaign, proving that Hannity (in the words of the Congressman) “is not owned by the establishment part of the Republican party.” Priceless — and not likely to be repeated again in the near future.
