The call-and-response between Hannity and callers to his radio show goes something like this these days:
Hannity: Wilbur in North Dakota, welcome to the show!
Caller: Thanks for taking my call, Sean you’re a great American!
Hannity: You’re a great American, my friend.
The first couple of times I heard it, it confused me were these callers regulars to the show? Had they previously told him enough about themselves that he could pass judgment on their great Americanness? But no apparently all it takes to be labeled a “great American” by Sean Hannity is to declare Sean Hannity a great American.
Which sets the bar pretty low, doesn’t it?
