A lot has been said about Alan Colmes, not much of it good from the liberal side of the isle, for not being tough enough. I've always disagreed with the criticisms by simply pointing out that Colmes style is politely adversarial, at least on Hannity & Colmes. His radio show is something else entirely. He's smart, quick with the facts and super human for not losing it completely, after so many insane Hannity Republican callers spewing their racist language and empty hate filled rhetoric at the host. It really is fun to listen to.
He's leaving Hannity & Colmes at the end of the month, and The Daily Show invited Hall and Oates to sing their tribute song to this radio and TV icon, who's been on the liberal front line taking on the conservative assault machine.
