Liberal Pundit Alan Colmes Has Passed Away at 66

alan-colmes-1Alan Colmes has passed away at the age of 66.

Anyone else remember “Hannity and Colmes,” the point-counterpoint debate-style talk show that aired in the evenings in the early days of Fox News when they presented pro and con sides of an issue? On the show that was on from 1996-2009, far right conservative Sean Hannity would square off against far left liberal Alan Colmes to discuss any- and everything political.

The show was entertaining and, while I normally did not agree with Colmes’ side of the discussion, he offered the other side of issues. However, it was kind of unsettling to see Hannity talk over Colmes as he responded, drilling into him when he tried to make a point. They finally parted ways, and Colmes went on to host a radio show for the Fox network while Hannity remained as the sole host of the TV show.

A little known fact is that Colmes’ sister-in-law was conservative commentator Monica Crowley who often appeared with Hannity and Colmes. His wife was Crawley’s sister, Dr. Jocelyn Crowley, who is a professor of public policy at Rutgers University.

No cause of death has been shared. RIP, Alan Colmes.

In the words of well-known Virginia conservative operative Anna Lee, Bush was “very Presidential and articulate.” It was his day in the sun.

Lee was part of the Who’s Who of Virginia supporters that included Marta Saltus and Manny Rosales, whose main focus was to support Bush and encourage him to simply, “Run.” Victor Cabral, noted Virginia attorney and husband of Anna Escobedo Cabral, who served as the nation’s 42nd Treasurer of the United States under George W. Bush, served as Virginia point man for the private Bush event. He was instrumental in assembling over 1,000 supporters from across the nation to a reception with Bush after a remarkable stage performance in front of a packed CPAC crowd. More importantly he brought key leaders of the Hispanic community to take a hard look at Bush. It worked.
