Jon Stewart (and Hall And Oates) Say Goodbye To Alan Colmes

Jon Stewart says goodbye to Alan Colmes with a brutal montage of all the abuse he's received over the years at FOX and a special rendition of "She's Gone" from none other than 80s pop music duo Hall and Oates.

"The man who singlehandedly put the 'Colmes' in 'Hannity & Colmes' is leaving that program. For Colmes, it has been no easy task being the sole liberal voice on the FOX network. But through all the tough times, Alan Colmes always had one thing to lean on: The respect he earned from his colleagues."

UPDATE: Full song lyrics and a response from Hannity below the fold.

Anytime you need a token liberal

Nothin' but a body to fill a chair

The barest shadow of a person

Alan Colmes is always there.

But all those years of non-existence

Can really run a person down.

Now he's leaving Hannity forever

Alan, please don't go!

You're the only non-douchebag on that show

He's gone. Bye bye,

Oh why

He was the Tango to his cash

And he's gone.

Oh why

To the extent

That I hadn't noticed he was there

But he's gone.

Oh why

What went wrong?

He's gone. Bye bye

Oh why?

He was the Laurel to his Hardy

He's gone

To spend

More time

Not being seen with his family

He's gone

What went wrong?

Hannity's response:

"I was actually thinking of Jon [Stewart] as a co-host but I needed someone who could be smart and funny without 50 writers and two has-been rockers who are badly in need of Botox."
