The Literary Legacy of Hannity & Colmes

The liberal pundit had had this to say: “Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.”

In the argumentative duo, Sean Hannity was conservative and prolific. In 2004, he wrote Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism; and one year later, he wrote Deliver Us from Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism. In addition, Hannity runs a conservative book club out of his website.

In 2004, Colmes wrote the bestseller, 2004 book, Red, White & Liberal: How Left Is Right & Right Is Wrong. Oddly enough, out of the two authors, only Colmes’ wife currently has a new book on the market. Jocelyn Elise Crowley just published a look at divorce activists in Defiant Dads: Fathers’ Rights Activists in America–currently one of the top ranking Family & Health Law books at Amazon.
