As is his custom, Sean Hannity takes a well-deserved break between Christmas and New Years from his talk-radio and television shows. One of his guest hosts on his radio show this past week was Herman Cain of WSB in Atlanta. (Recall that Atlanta is where Hannity made a name for himself).
What struck me about Mr. Cain is he likes to come up with acronyms and mnemonic devices for various subject matter. I can't quote him verbatim, but I can give you a solid paraphrase of what Mr. Cain said about liberals and conservatives talking about politics with one another.
Mr. Cain put it this way:
When a liberal tries to reply to a question posed by a conservative, he commits a SIN. SIN is an acronym and I'll explain what the letters stand for.
"S" stands for "Shifting the blame." When a conservative points out something that the Obama Administration does is wrong, or what Congress did is wrong, a liberal is quick to shift the blame. "If it weren't for the mess that Bush left us...."
"I" stands for "Ignoring the facts." That's the next step in a liberal's argument. The liberals say that Bush raised the National Debt by $3.2 trillion, but there were two wars being fought and this increase happened over the course of 8 years. Obama will have raised the National Debt by 1.2 Trillion on the healthcare bill alone. He's only been in office less than a year!
"N" stands for "Name calling." Finally, when liberals see that they're getting nowhere with their conservative friends, they resort to name calling. Fear-mongerer, war-mongerer, greedy-capitalists.....
How true. How true.
Mr. Cain, you are a Great American!
