Insiders at FOX have been complaining bitterly ever since FOX gave Williams a huge, multi-million, multi year deal, after he was fired from NPR over comments that allegedly were insentitive to Muslims.

One FOX on-air personality said, not for attribution, that "Basically, Williams is dumb as a rock. He drags down the level of discussion on the panel, and Brit Hume has a perpetual pain in his neck from glaring in astonishment at all the insipid, inane things Williams says."

"Geez" said another. "We can get Alan Colmes to do the same crap for 1/20 the price. And at least this way we keep in in the family." ( For those who aren't aware, Colmes is married to Monica Crowley's sister.)

Ailes is known to have regretted signing Williams to the big deal, especially since NPR senior management gloats about it all the time at industry gatherings. He'd just love to be able to move Juan's contract, but as yet has found no takers.

Would Ailes be willing to pick up some of the cost of William's contract to make the deal? When asked, he smiled, and said, "it's open. Anything and everything is always on the table in negotiations. But they'd have to give me something back in return. Maybe S.E. Cupp. She shows a lot of potential. Could be a major leaguer in the near future."

Send the Chris Wallace too. He has gone from being an insufferable twit to and out and out Obama campaigner.

Fox should fire him.

Ideology aside, Colmes is a pretty good guy. He helped out John Derbyshire after the guy was booted from National Review. Ideology is one thing, but friends are people who'll help you out in times of trouble with more than just words.

Take Juan for crying out loud! He is absolutely insufferable. Bob Beckel is tolerable as is Alan Colmes but Juan needs to go!!!!!

Yes, by all means. And if they could also unload Whore Aldo it would be a trifecta.

Ailes should trade all three of these clowns for one of the janitors at PMSNBC.

They should just cut their losses with Juan. The guy is actually running off viewers!

I have a simple message for Mr. Ailes and it goes like this.

When the libs come on, the show goes off!!

I'm mainly talking about their guests but that also includes Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, etc. etc.

Juan's entire contribution seems to be brow-knitting, condescendingly smiling, and regurgitating boilerplate lefty dogma.

He's about engaging and intellectually challenging as a chronic yeast infection.

Someone might actually tune in that time slot into see Juan...at least he can speak proper english language....

"In his first response to the comments by the head of MSNBC, that the "one FOX on-air personality they would like to have is Sheppard Smith,"

MSNBC knows "gay" when they see gay. And they've seen Shep. Send them Shep. He'll fit right in over there.

It is somewhat entertaining watching Juan getting bitch-slapped over and over again in roundtable discussions. I say toss in Geraldo and 3/5’s of The Five.
