As Sean Hannity fans know, he's been on a crusade to ... leave New York, or specifically, Long Island (he's a true-blue Islander). Angered by some clumsily worded observation by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo recently, Hannity has been musing about the possibility of relocating to Florida or Texas, though it's unclear how he'd continue to produce and host the show from either state (but hey -- it is called satellite hookup).

On Monday night -- in what has to be the most extended expression of sarcasm in the English language since Jonathan Swift wrote "A Modest Proposal" -- Jon Stewart offered a modest proposal of his own, with a little help from the cast of "Jersey Boys": Please stay, Mister Hannity. Please stay.
