I told a silly joke on the air the other night. We were talking about Jenna Bush getting married at the Crawford Ranch rather than at the White House. In discussing the wedding and possible gifts I said, “I understaning they’re registered at Halliburton.” Well, the crew thought it was funny, but not every viewer did.

Your stupid joke about Jenna Bush wedding wasn’t funny. Do you liberals not have
just one moment where you can be civil? No matter how much you dislike the Bushes,
Jenna Bush doesn’t deserve your degrading humor, just like I wouldn’t want a stupid
joke made about Chelsea Clinton. These are nice young ladies, who don’t have any
influence on their parents.

Give it a rest, Allan, you are stupid.

Dear Alan,

Your little joke about Jenna Bush being registered at Haliburton was very LOW CLASS. IT WAS NOT FUNNY!

I would hope you would apologize tomorrow evening on your program and also apologize to Jenna Bush directly.

She did not deserve that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Jenna Bush has registered at Halliburton’s.” ….such poor taste, Alan. That was not a joke; it was a jab at Pres. Bush. Rather than saying something nice, you chose to make a j _ _ _a_ _out of yourself. What else is new.

You MEANT as DEMEANING what you called a joke. That is a sophomoric reply, calling it a joke.

You LIBSCUM have no sense of humor. Whenever you mental midgets get caught in a slander you just lie & claim it as a joke.

I will have to admit that the joke concerning Jenna and her fiance registering at Haliburton was pretty funny. This is the first time I have ever sided with you over Sean. I guess I can be bipartisan after all.

Your hate Bush rhetoric is disgusting but the Bush daughters should be above your disgusting trash mouth. You belong with the low life liberals you represent, no class scum. If you have any decency, which I have no doubt that you don’t, you would apologize and try to learn some manners and human decency.

Mr. Colmes,

I was very shocked and saddened by your crude and hateful remark regarding the upcoming wedding of Jenna Bush. Your nasty comment about her being registered at Halliburton was so mean spirited and hateful as to be almost unbelievable. I understand that you hate the president and his policies, however I think your viciousness against his daughter– who has absolutely nothing to do with her father’s administration– is below the belt, even for you. I have seen you come to the defense of Chelsea Clinton and other innocent family members of elected officials when they are unfairly brought into the political fray by republicans and I think your slap at the Jenna Bush is highly hypocritical. Jenna Bush has done nothing to warrant your callousness and your hatred for her father has made you lash out her. If you are going to call out other people for unwarranted and off base personal attacks, you should at least be consistent. You owe Jenna Bush a public apology, although I won’t hold my breath for it.

Your comment/joke about registering at Halaberton for President Bush’s daughter’s wedding is in real bad taste. I am an avid listener of Hannity and Colmes. I truly believe you are obliged to offer an apology to your listeners and President Bush’s daughter. Your comment/joke was beneath your caliber and talent.

I am as conservative as they come. But, man, your joke tonight about Jenna Bush being registered at Haliburton absolutely slayed me! I was on the floor crying in laughter. Oh, that has to be one of the best lines I have heard in a long time. I’ve got a saying “funny is funny.” In other words, regardless of your political stripe, if something is truly humorous, EVERYONE will find it funny. And THAT was FUNNY!! Author! Author!

Allan I always thought you must be a good guy even if you were a blooming liberal. Your comment tonight about the Bush daughter registering at Halliburton wiped out that generous assessment of you for good. It just confirmed that fair play, character, and respect for others is not in your make-up. Too bad. It is obvious that your hate for Bush warps your mind such that you will say anything to try to degrade him, even when it is against his children. My heart goes out to Sean for tolerating you as long as he does. You really should take a close look at yourself, especially when you won’t even recognize that an apology to the girl for such a stupid comment was in order. Instead, you try to cover it up as a joke. Come on.

Mr. (Trent) Alan Colmes;

Due to your cutting and inconsiderate comment about Haliburton, being on the wedding list for Ms. Bush,
I am hereby requesting you resign from the Hannity show.
You said it was a joke, but jokes in this poli
tically correct era (communist), cannot be tolerated.
Your apologies will not suffice, and we will not cease calling for your resignation until you resign.
Adios you red liberal communist!
Regards, Larry

Whatever possessed you, Mr. Colmes, to joke about Jenna Bush? It was completely uncalled for and was not funny. She is a beautiful girl and we wish her and Henry Godspeed.

By the way, when Chelsea Clinton announces her engagement, are you going to ask if Web Hubbell is going to give her away?

We watch each night and find that you cannot be objective any longer. Surely you realize that this turns peoples dials to other station. Hannity is a gentleman to all. Your remark about Jenna Bush registry last night was toatally inappropriate. You need to apologize to all.She must have been really hurt to hear that repeated. I was hurt for her last night.She is not fair game for those kinds of things to be said.This has been on our minds since last night.Shame on you.

Thank you for letting me vent.

What has that young woman ever done to deserve the disrespectful comment by you on the show, Thursday evening ! It was a “cheap” political shot, but not unexpected by your demeanor. Since Chris Matthews apologized for the comment of Hillary Clinton, the I suggest you take the follow of your liberal comrade and apologize also. We have to put up with you on “Fair and Balance” news show, but the truth is that you could not make it if not for Fox News and Sean Hannity. So please respect the viewers who keep your rating high.
