Sean hannity has provided the second largest talk show for conseratives for a long time. the first is rush limbaugh.

But i think sean hannity should be acknowledged the most, for he tells nothing but truth to the public, and has changed many views over the past.

he helps inspire the public everyday.

Sean hannity is definitely americas superhero

"Dictionary:
superhero
(sū'pər-h�r'ō) pronunciation

Home > Library > Literature & Language > Dictionary
n., pl. -roes.

A figure, especially in a comic strip or cartoon, endowed with superhuman powers and usually portrayed as fighting evil or crime."

"A superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a fictional character "of unprecedented physical prowess dedicated to acts of derring-do in the public interest"

http://en.wikipedia.org...

Please display Sean hannity's superhuman powers, and/or fictional status.

Furthermore, America already has a superhero.

http://en.wikipedia.org...
So he would be but one of plural American superheroes were a superhero. The resolution implies singularity.

i am talking about REAL heroes here. the people who make life better all around the world.

Every one has their own personal super heroes in their life, such as perents, or inspiring people etc. Sean hannity i feel is doing america a favor every day when he brings inspiration the peoples minds. By arguing with people he helps them better see their mistakes and helps input change into their lives.

Sean hannity is a saint among the people of our country.

these are all his 'super powers'

"i am talking about REAL heroes here."

*Ragnar checks the resolution.*

"sean hannity is americas superhero"

Hmm... I see superhero, I don't see anything about REAL heroes...

Does anyone else see anything about real heroes in the resolution?

I argue with people. That's not superhuman, that's just human. Heroic or no, it's definitely not superheroic.

Why are you insulting the man by comparing him to a bunch of people who died for myths (the "saints")? Especially when you wish to prove his superheroism, which, it happens, you are failing at remarkably?

"
these are all his 'super powers'"

*Looks*

Nope, no superpowers here. Human powers, sure. Nothing super. Not even duper!

well without things having to be so literal, i still claim sean hannity is americas super hero for all the reasons above.

My opponent just argues me on how he is not a superhero because he has no powers.

Of course there is no such thing as real people with super powers and my opponent knows this. however he keeps arguing the same thing.

Obviously since that its impossible for sean hannity to actually have super powers, i still hold claim to my beginning arguments. My opponent knew what was meant by the resolution and is now arguing, rather absurd points. (no offence)

Unfortunately, debate resolutions have exact (literal) meanings. So, a situation without that fact is irrelevant :).

"

Incorrect. He has plenty of powers, it's just that none of them are SUPERHUMAN powers.

"

And you keep arguing things irrelevant to the resolution.

"
The only thing that can be "meant by a resolution" is what the words in the resolution mean. You can have different intentions, but the fact that the words don't match them is your failure, not mine.

When a resolution is absurd, the points in relation to it are also absurd :)

Some people have a true talent for making an a** (forgive the asterisks, but this site has gotten so wimpy that we aren't even allowed to type words one can speak on network television) out of themselves. For such people, that is usually their only talent.

Sean Hannity is a wall banger.

Michael Savage is the only voice of reason.

Is that an invitation?

Or are you saying you want me out of you about as much as menstrual blood with that use of my name?
