Video: Hall & Oates roast Alan Colmes on Jon Stewart Daily Show

On last night's Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Hall & Oates made a surprise appearance to wish Alan Colmes a happy good-bye after years of hosting Hannity & Colmes on Fox News. Unfortunately, they referred to him as a "token liberal", the "barest shadow of a person", the "only non-douchebag on that show", and more. Full lyrics and the catty reply from Hannity below. Here's the video:

Here's the reply from Hannity: "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."

Since Hall & Oates still seem to be working, somehow "has-been" doesn't seem that appropriate.

And, here are the lyrics:

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?
