An Idle Thought

What I wonder about such warmongering mouthpieces like Sean "Conservatives Believe in Welfare" Hannity, Michael Savage, and Neal Boortz is what they would do in the event that Ron Paul pulls off a victory in the GOP nomination process. Let’s imagine for a moment that it’s a Ron Paul vs. Hillary Clinton Superbowl – Clinton, of course, being very much in favor of continuing the adventures of the Imperial War Machine, which is what these Chickenhawks thirst for.

Could you imagine their consternation at having to actually speak favorably about Hillary? Or would they eat their own words and get on board to promote Paul’s desire to end the war and bring the troops home?

I have this picture in my head of a scene from the movie, "It's A Wonderful Life", where George Bailey is being offered a very lucrative job by Mr. Potter in the latter's attempt to buy him off. His uncertainty is apparent, but when he shakes hands with Potter, his better sense asserts itself and he rejects the offer outright, becoming indignant and horrified at what he had come very close to doing.

I wonder if Hannity, Boortz, and Co. would shake hands with Hillary Potter, and if so, would they react the same way as George Bailey? Or will they become known as "Clinton Conservatives"?

I was wondering the same thing Jason... seeing as Hannity will HANG UP on you if you utter Ron Paul's name it would be quite fun to hear him eat his own words and speak favorably of RP. Seeing as he would probably explode if he uttered a positive remark on Hillary's behalf.

Boortz wouldn't be too bad as he's said SOME favorable things about Paul in the past and on the whole the only portion of Paul's platform he doesn't favor is the forein policy, I feel that of the lot of them, Boortz would be the best support for Paul.

I think RP would do just fine without the support of Boortz and Hannity.

May the BOYN rest lightly.
