Once again, I did it so you wouldn't have to – I watched the first installment of Sean Hannity's Clomesless show, and I can't believe I'd ever be saying this, but bring back the other guy.
The show is barely halfway though, and for about thirty minutes, it was terrible – the highlight was learning that Hannity is friends with Whoopi Goldberg. But the next eight minutes Hannity has done a parody of Brit Hume's panel discussion – except Hannity doesn't know that. He thinks it's relevant, so let's start with the panel members – some Republican congresswoman who insisted that Al Sharpton call her "Michelle," instead of his preferred choice: congresswoman, and yet, Sharpton is panel member #2, both figuratively and in order of everything that's decent. So who's third? Who could be THAT bad? Meatloaf! It's not just for dinner anymore. And Meat started it all off by interrupting Hannity to assert something about his absurd name, and has since done and amazing impression of Tom Arnold.
As to what they discussed? Take a guess, you'll probably get as close as I could in trying to tell you. It was nonstop talking over one another and our hero-host did absolutely nothing to try to control it.
Mercifully they finally went to commercial… thank God for free TV, but then they came back, and they're talking as I write, something about education and how the teachers need higher salaries. All totally relevant to the moment, and I only wish I could have understood one thing they were saying – or better yet, never tuned in.
Interestingly, when Hannity concluded the "discussion," they went to a commercial featuring John McEnroe who was yelling his patented "You can't be serious" line. It made me wish he was on the panel…
