Former Vice President Dick Cheney joined Hannity to talk about what it’s like to prepare for a nationally televised debate (FREE audio).
“They’ll have a huge briefing book, and they’ll rehearse,” Cheney explained. “You’re psyched for this, but the important thing to do is relax so you can take advantage of the other guy’s mistakes. You want to memorize good lines, but you want to ad-lib as well.”
After the Romney/Obama debate, Hannity noted, “Mitt Romney, trailing in the polls, needed to prove tonight that he could stand on stage with President Barack Obama as an equal and a plausible president of the United States.
“He did that in the crucial first 40 minutes of Wednesday night’s debate,” Hannity concluded, “addressing Obama respectfully, even warmly – but then tangling with a sometimes hazy and professorial Obama on taxes and deficits.”

Beck says he won’t stop using music by the band Muse during his public appearances, even though the group has asked him to stop.
The band has complained that Glenn Beck has hijacked their songs to “take down people like Obama and put forward right-wing libertarianism.”
However, Beck responded in part: “As uncomfortable as it might be for you, I will still play your songs loudly. … In the Venn Diagram of American politics, where the circles of crimson and blue overlap, there’s a place where you and I meet. It’s a place where guys who cling to their religion, rights and guns, connect with godless, clinched-fist-tattoo guys.”
