The Beatles break up

Hannity and Colmes split up
Fox News announced that after 12 years, Alan Colmes will be leaving the top-rated "Hannity & Colmes" at the end of the year.

“I approached Bill Shine (FNC’s Senior Vice President of Programming) earlier this year about wanting to move on after 12 years to develop new and challenging ways to contribute to the growth of the network," Colmes said in a statement. "Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.”
Hold those tears dear fans, Colmes isn't dead, he's just moving to a nice farm in the country...where he'll...*sob*...have more space to roam. He's in a better place now...the radio...and he's totally going to get another show, honest. As for Hannity, how will he go on without the Statler to his Waldorf, the Oates to his Hall, the Salacious Crumb to his Jabba the Hutt? What liberal will they force upon Hannity so they can go "We aren't a network of Republican shills, look at ________ on Hannity's show. See!" How about none? It'll just be the Hannity Power Hour from now on, where he's free to traipse around the fevered swamps of the right wing fringes, like how BHO time traveled and killed Vince Foster. It'll basically be the same show, except that there won't be a creepy guy trying to get a word in as Hannity turns beet red and puffs up like a blowfish over something Bill Clinton did.

Fare thee well sweet prince, enjoy the farm, you'll have plenty of space to run.
