Last night, Sean Hannity aired a private voicemail between Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. I found these reactions to Fox and Hannity to be among the best:
As a recovering addict, i know how difficult it is tto be in the grips of drug addiction.

A look at the predictable Republican response
Earlier today, the Associated Press published
The costs of the Afghanistan war, in lives and dollars

The local’s editorial page gets into full gear
Joe Biden has not assumed the office yet, but today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial page gets our local Republican propaganda vehicle quickly up to speed with two attacks on the president-elect.
