Imus's guest this morning was Author Pete Hamill. Pete Hamill is a well known prolific writer, self admittedly of Irish descent. Full disclosure so am I. To say the Irish are an opinionated group would be an understatement. I always thought that if the Irish had a mantra, it would be "Everyone is Entitled to my Opinion" There are many examples, Bill O'Reilly, A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity, Dennis Leary, Why We Suck, Bernard McGuirk, During Waking Hours, Sean Hannity HERE, John McCain, Our Burden To Bear ect...I mean there are more examples but there are just not enough hours in a day to list them all.
This morning Mr Hamill was sharing his opinion, about President Elect Barack H Obama. He stated the election of Barack H Obama to the Presidency of the United States, was a Seismic Change. It looks like The Irish will save Civilization again in the form of O'Bama. He gave some examples of why, he did so in a reasonable, calm, measured manner. I was fascinated maybe the right word was captivated. He didn't raise his voice, he didn't wave his arms, he didn't call anyone names, he didn't threaten to take it outside...To the non Irish or of non Irish descent, you won't understand why this is so Impressive. For the rest of us you can listen to Pete Hamill this morning on Imus In The Morning podcast HERE. Pete Hamill Interview HERE.
I do have a question for Mr Hamill, and his opinion that the Election of Barack H Obama is a Seismic Change. I would like him to explain, why then this is happening in Earthquake Country, article below.
OAKLAND, Calif. — Another protest in Oakland against a fatal shooting by transit police ended with little of the trouble seen the night before.
A crowd of about 100 people formed Thursday night to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed man by a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officer.
When some protesters began stopping cars and buses and threw trash cans into the street, police in riot gear moved in to disperse the crowd. Keep Reading Fox News HERE
