A Benediction for Sean Hannity
From National Disgrace Online

Oh, Sean Hannity. Everyday from 1 until 4, you speak like a man who, with a cautious optimism and a deep yearning, ultimately looks forward to the full revelation of those mysteries come his Judgment day. Your words always demonstrate an awareness of place?even as the leader of the free world?in Creation. And yes, that is somewhat uncommon?at least with consistency and confidence?in our pop culture.

You speak as a man, who, amidst our cultural muddle, would know what do to with David?s charge to Solomon from Kings (1 2:1-3).

When David?s time to die drew near, he charged Solomon, his son, saying, ?I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong and show yourself a man, and keep the charge of the Lord, your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his ordinances and his testimonies.?

Dear Sean, you have the humility to be a player in Washington but not of it. And oh, I know, the responsibilities of the office weigh heavily on you ? and anyone who has spent time with you can see it emanating from your physical being.

In an environment where man and manhood are often subject to derision, it?s important to celebrate good men who aren?t afraid to recognize there?s a power greater than their own. It?s important to celebrate good men who know the right order of things. It?s important to celebrate good men who have some clue as to what to do with a charge like King David?s; they know that ultimately it?s the charge of another King, who promises more than any presidential candidate ? even Barack Obama! ? can. And their examples are living moral compasses in a confusing world.

And you, Sean, like George W. Bush, dare not be holier than thou about it. You?re but men ? that?s the point ? and you?re men who love life, love love, love fun. You?re men not threatened by tears, but with no interest in being feminized.
