Apparently, at the White House correspondants dinner, Al Franken decided to spend 20 minutes screaming at Alan Colmes for not shouting down Hannity on their show. Eventually Brian Kilmeade decided to jump in the middle. He went off on Franken this morning, saying the above and other descriptions of why he now thinks Franken is certifiable.

It was hilarious.

'Cept for Colmes apparently... Colmes is a good debater even if he is wrong. Hannity is a terrible debater but usually right (besides the Lott issue).

Earlier this morning, Brian mentioned FR by name, the awards they gave out, and to whom!

This bit just now about Al funny and sad too.

Al's been hitting the crack pipe a little hard lately.

for not shouting down Hannity on their show

I only caught part of that this a.m.....did Brian say exactly about what Colmes should have shouted down Hannity for?

Apparently, Franken thinks that is what Colmes should be doing on a regular basis.

My posting in another thread:


During Ray Charles performance, Franken went over to Colmes to tell Colmes he wasn't doing a good job. [Got loud.]

Kilmeade said Franken was out of control and going at Colmes (almost or close to physically).

Steve implied that Kilmeade physically defended/rescued Colmes.

Kilmeade: "This guy [Franken] is insane."

[No indication that punches were actually thrown.]

But Colmes doesn't shout at anybody...unlike the other liberals, Colmes actually discusses issues, without resorting to shouting over everyone with their latest talking points, like a tape recorder, with the volume ever-increasing.

From the same thread you linked to:

Drudge was suggesting last night that somebody must have taken a slug at Franken. He was seen staggering in the halls bleeding.

This is hilarious, but where are the delicious details?

Were Moore and Colmes at the same table? Did Moore's haranguing of Colmes take place during dinner? Or was Moore at another table and approached Colmes' table to pick a fight? Or did the event take place out in the hall?

Did anyone take a swing at anyone else, or was it just verbal?

From what I've read and heard so far, it looks like the juicy parts are being hushed up, or.....there are no juicy parts and it's all hype.

Anyone know the answers?

Colmes is a good guy. Well intentioned and the kind of Democrat Republicans can respect (even if dead wrong). Colmes can concede an argument when facts negate his side. Couldnt say the same thing for Hannity.

Im sorry, Hannity just bothers me with his finger pointing and personal attacks for me to take him seriously.

Oh, and to add some details that I got from watching Fox and Friends (if I make any mistakes here, I apologize in advance)...

Colmes was eating dinner with his fiance. Franken was not seated at the same table, but came over to basically yell at Colmes. This went on for nearly a half hour. Kilmeade and a Fox producer eventually intervened.

It does make one wonder: In a room of journalists, why couldn't at least one get a journalistic report out this morning about the "event"?

Sorry about my gaffe in substituting Moore for Franken. Should have had my second cup of coffee to wake up.

Guess I just mentally run these two butt-ugly leftist slobs together in my head.

Al Franken himself will be explaining this situation on FR Comedy Radio on May 21 at 9 PM EDT. In case you missed the last Comedy Radio Show, Al Franken is now the host of the EIL (Excellence In Liberalism) Network on FR Comedy Radio. So tune in at that time and listen to Franken give his explanation of this incident. Plus there will be some exciting interviews conducted by Franken including with Jacques Chirac.

Yeah, Colmsey is one of the few libs I actually enjoy listening to..Juan Williams too. They actually seem to be reasonable and intelligent, and not the DNC parrots all the others seem to be.

Agreed...and if there's no other reason to respect Colmes, which I actually have grown to respect more and more over the past year or so, he does concede points. I don't agree with most anything he says, however, I will listen to him (sometimes painfully, lol), simply because he's honest and sincere in what he's thinking....and also because I think he's willing to be open-minded, at least to a point....I don't know if it's just me, but it also seems to me he's moved to the right a tad from a year and a half ago.

Yep. Juan's not too bad, although I don't find myself agreeing with him much, either. But I can listen to him because he's not caustic and loud. Most Rats are awful, either with their tone of voice or shouting or dishonesty in not answering questions.

Where did you get the idea that Moore was involved or even there? Please read the thread.

I agree. Not always a popular opinion here, but Colmes is an honest guy, even if he is often wrong.

Understandable mistake taken in this light. Please disregard previous post. But, then again, don't all lib liars look and act alike? Venom spewing hate-filled, radical communists. They are losing the political battle and they are seeing their power dwindle daily.

Anybody think Hannity won't be extending an invitation to Franken @ 3:01 pm EST today to come on the show and take up Colmes' slack?

Which is why, although I generally agree with Hannity & disagree with Colmes, Colmes is the one I'd rather have over for dinner. We just wouldn't discuss politics!

Hannity may have the correct side but is always overmatched when it comes to debating the issue.He can't adapt.He needs a script.

My wife and I have been discussing this the past few weeks. We've both noticed Hannity just isn't debating well, at least not lately. Last week, for example, Mario Cuomo simply ran Hannity over. Maybe Hannity's tired from the three-hour radio show?

I think his point is that Colmes has a basic concept of how to debate, whereas Hannity runs about three plays.

1 - Praise Conservative Guest (or Reagan)

2 - Read (R) talking points

3 - Ignore Liberal Guest and shout at him without refuting his arguements.

The most painful thing is that Hannity is 99% right on everything, but his delivery is so blunt and clumsy that he nearly always misses easy to shoot down lines. Colmes is like warmed over death, but he at least talks to the guests to develop leads without leaping right in to the attack.

If they had a sharper liberal on there, I think that the show would be a lot more interesting, and Sean would have to evolve out of his rut. He could really be hitting them out of the park if he could just bring himself to listen and refute better, rather than hit the 'attack' button every time.

I love the way you put this. I usually agree with Hannity, but can't stand the way he says it. Must be a Jersey thing.

I really like Alan Colmes! I disagree with many of his points, but he does present the other side with grace.

Dr. Dobson has said on his show, that he likes him as well.

We can have honest disagreements with a person's position and still repect them.

i guess since the war stuff started, i can agree with you that Sean has lost effectiveness, and i commented to that effect to my husband. Once he gets irritated he can no longer refute the point effectively. But, i do take issue that Alan outmatches him, because he is not a persuasive debater either, by any stretch. i like alan, only because he is one of the few liberals i can stomach. and he will take on the more absurd extreme views on his side.
