What was great was one of Hugh's best friends, James Lileks, called in to the Hugh Hewitt show the next night and did an extemporaneous skit playing the part of Karen Finney and he also hung up [in jest] the phone on Hugh.
Trust me friends, this is funny stuff. If you have never heard this, please listen to the following two videos of the Hugh Hewitt show from Aug. 28 of 2013 where Karen Finney hung up the phone on Hugh Hewitt and then the next night when James Lileks did the same.
So, at least Bravo to Aaron Sharockman for not joining the gang of 5 who have hung up on Hugh Hewitt: the late Helen Thomas, Ed Henry, Karen Finney on August 28, 2013, James Lileks [in jest] on August 29, 2013, and David Corn on Feb. 23, 2015.
This is a previous Tales post published on Sept. 2, 2013 entitled:
What Do James Lileks And Karen Finney Have In Common?:
|Karen Finney hung up on Hugh Hewitt|
Karen Finney's answers to Hugh Hewitt's questions revealed her total lack of knowledge regarding that time period in history. She kept wanting to talk and denounce Senator Ted Cruz, so she became very annoyed when Hugh asked her questions regarding the McCarthy hearings [since she was the one making the comparison of McCarthy and Cruz]. Hugh asked Karen if Alger Hiss was a Communist spy. And he asked her, and asked her, and asked her again. She would never answer, either because she didn't want to or because she had no clue who Alger Hiss was. Karen got so frustrated on not being able to continue to bash Senator Cruz that she hung up on Hugh.

Playing the part of Karen Finney well, James Lileks would not answer Hugh's questions about Alger Hiss and abruptly hung up on Hugh [which sent Hugh into laughter].
The question posed by this post is 'what do James Lileks and Karen Finney have in common?' The answer, of course, is that they both hung up on the great Hugh Hewitt.
Enjoy Karen Finney's hang up call of Hugh Hewitt, followed by James, "Karen Finney", Lileks hang up call of Hugh Hewitt. [compliments of podcasts taken from The Hughniverse]
