Hannity Suffers Bad Hair Day--Colmes Over

As you more than likely have read elsewhere on the internets, Alan Colmes will be leaving his position as Sean Hannity's last weak link to sanity on the Fox "news" show they did "together." So INOTBB thought it would be good to run through the odds on the possible candidates who might replace Colmes as the liberal counter to Hannity's mighty rightwing might, assuming Hannity's show won't just cut to an empty chair and act like Colmes is still on the show even after he leaves.

2-1 Joe Lieberman
After all, he still caucuses with the Democrats, right?

5-1 Anonymous
Joe Klein resurfaces, just like so much of the rest of the Clinton era.

10-1 Dick Morris
First, Hannity, always wanted to say, "Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick." Second, Hannity, it turns out, also likes feet (at least both have learned the taste of their own). Third, if you pay him, he'll do it. Fourth, and you don't have to pay him much.

20-1 Chris Matthews
He's on that completely liberal MSNBC, so would be a perfect fit. Plus he never had an intern from his office die, like Scarborough.

50-1 Stephen Colbert
Hannity still trying to figure out if he's a put-on or not.

100-1 John McCain
Those on the right can go back to claiming McCain's not conservative enough for them. Maybe Rush Limbaugh will even take Hannity's calls after that.

500-1 Rudy Giuliani
But to make it seem like he's somehow liberal, he'll have to do the show in drag. Odds are so slim as Judy refuses to share her wardrobe now that she won't be First Lady.

You can do it, Mike.

Mike--so Smitty thinks your odds are better than mine. I'm not sure what that says about either of us.

Hm, let's see, who's the most weaselly looking lib they can find to fill in for Colmes to piss off and reaffirm the beliefs of the Fox faithful? Some wayward Kennedy we have yet to familiarize themselves with?

Ah who are we kidding? This has Palin written all over it...

I thought Palin, but Hannity wouldn't want to be outshone. Plus if he had Rich Lowry on as a guest, someone would have to clean the "starbursts" from his seat afterward.
