The ‘Great American Panel’

THE ‘GREAT AMERICAN PANEL’…. On Monday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity will be hosting his new prime-time show, without Alan Colmes to his left. As part of the new H&C without the C, Hannity will feature the “Great American Panel,” with different guests taking on prominent roles on a rotating basis.

Have you seen the first lineup?

The new Alan Colmes-less Hannity premieres Monday with frequent Fox News guest Al Sharpton filling the liberal seat on Sean Hannity’s newly christened “Great American Panel.”

Rep. Michelle Bachman (R-Minn.) will fill the seat on the right. (And she should have plenty to talk about given the Senate dispute in her state between Al Franken and Norm Coleman.)

The X-factor on the panel: Meatloaf.

Sometimes, I enjoy making fun of Fox News, and sometimes, I enjoy it when Fox News makes fun of itself.
