As you may have heard, it was recently revealed that James O'Keefe had doctored those infamous ACORN videos. When he was the toast of the conservative media, O'Keefe had been aggressively championed by Sean Hannity, but the Fox host has been mum since the activist's exposure as a fraud. So on last night's Colbert Report, Stephen decided to sit down with some doctored video of Hannity and get to the bottom of things.
Personally, I'm just really glad to see a whore on Hannity's show again. I miss Alan Colmes.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Holy shit! God — the Lord Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth — has it in for Barack Obama! At least, that's what Southern Baptist minister and former VP candidate Wiley Drake* recently told Alan Colmes…
Colmes: So you're praying for the death of the president of the United States?
Drake: Yes… I think it's appropriate to pray for the will of God. I'm not saying anything, what I'm doing is repeating what God is saying…
Wow! God is apparently saying that He wants Barack Obama to die. I wonder what Obama did to Him specifically. I'll bet they're fighting over Joe Biden's soul. Knowing that guy, he probably sold it to both of them while drunk on Genny Cream Ale. You know what I'm saying? (I'm saying Joe Biden is like my Uncle Albert.)
But, hey, I guess this also means that God isn't capable of just killing Barack Obama on His own and has to go around complaining about him to friends like Wiley Drake. Maybe what He needs people's prayers because they help charge His all-powerful battery pack that He uses for smiting people.
It's amazing how much I learn from religious people.
* With Alan Keyes, obviously.

Alan Colmes — formerly of Hannity and Colmes — debuts his brand new show on Fox News…
I begrudgingly think that's kind of funny, even though I'm 100 percent certain that Fox really kicked the idea for a show just like that around for at least a few days.
Thing is, I actually would like to watch that retrospective of the life of Noam Chomsky.
Update: That clip is actually from April Fools Day — I believe from the opening segment of Hannity's show — so that means I'm more than a month and a half slow on getting that up.
Which, when you think about it, is pretty good for me.

Alan Colmes is leaving "Hannity & Colmes" and Jon doesn't know how to put his feelings into words. Thankfully Hall & Oates have a song about how much Colmes means to all of us.
Daryl Hall sings it best with "I hadn't noticed he was there, but he's gone." How are you going to feel about his absence?

When the Bush Administration abdicates its throne in January, it will leave behind the redefinition of several administrative roles. The American vice president, for instance, is now a joint member of the executive and legislative branches as well as his own military branch in the war against pheasant-hunting old men.
Even more drastically changed is the role of White House Senior Advisor, which Karl Rove transformed from a middling policy job to one of great importance — ranking somewhat above U.S. President, but slightly below CEO of ExxonMobil.
Now with Rove banished to Fox News, (where he becomes the most liberal employee following the departure of Alan Colmes), the White House Advisor job transfers to David Axelrod, Barack Obama's longtime strategist.
Fun facts about Axelrod…
* He kind of hates Karl Rove.
* He is Jewish. This makes him an unlikely co-conspirator in Obama's planned destruction of Israel, which was reported by noted foreign policy analyst Joe the Plumber.
* He probably had a lot to do with Hillary Clinton's Secretary of State nomination, since she practically cured cancer as a favor to his wife.
