Your Super Tuesday War on Women update finds the battlefield shifting to an area that doesn’t involve any actual women. Wading into the fray this time is a well known, sober, principled, even toned observer of the human condition… Don Imus. The aging shock jock decided to add his two cents to the current kerfuffle embroiling Rush Limbaugh, doing so in his usual, measured, analytical style.
During Mondays news updates on Fox Business Networks Imus In The Morning, host Don Imus went off on Rush Limbaughs weekend apology to Sandra Fluke, calling Limbaugh a fat, gutless, pill-popping loser.
Imus expressed anger over Limbaughs apology, pointing out that it was done on his website and not in person.
A lame apology on his website, in which he says he didnt mean to personally attack her, Imus said, is gutless. Imus took issue with Limbaughs sustained, vile, personal attack on Fluke over three days, and said that if hes going to apologize, you have to go sit down with her and apologize.
As Andrew McCarthy reminds us, this is the same guy who saw a lot of conservatives go to bat for him after he lost his own advertisers – and his job – for referring to the Rutgers womens basketball team as a group of nappy headed hos. Having clearly learned his lesson from that sorry episode, he seems to have decided to correct Rush’s use of insulting language by… (OK, now I have a headache.)
For his next trick, Don will probably jump on the bandwagon with Steny Hoyer and suggest that Rush be sued. And then Rush can sue Imus. And Imus can sue Fluke. Pretty soon all of the available courts will be so tied up with this nonsense that there won’t be any judges left over to determine who wins Ohio next November.
A final thought on the absurdity of all this from McCarthy:
So naturally, Imus a recovering alcoholic and drug addict ripped Rush Limbaugh this morning as a fat, gutless, pill-popping loser. Perfect. Of course, as Rush eloquently explained today in publicly apologizing, yet again, to Sandra Fluke, his error in judgment was to succumb to a temptation at odds with the personality fans have come to know, and the person friends have come to know, over the past 25 years: the temptation to resort to the base language of unfounded personal insult the language that is the Lefts stock-in-trade and that Imus often seems unable to complete a sentence without. The post-Rutgers Imus, much like the pre-Rutgers Imus, is a well-trained house pet. Hes got down perfectly when you need to grovel, when you can afford to be sanctimonious, and which targets are safe for his bile-laced tirades.
It is, as Andrew points out with more than a little venom on his tongue, a true “profile in courage.” The only good news out of all this – at least for the time being – is found in the economy. Champagne companies should shortly be recording record profits on the back of all the parties that the Democrats are throwing this week.
Imus is an irrelevant, thankless nitwit. Who the hell cares what he has to say?
I hate dumb asses who wear hats indoors.
Don Imus. What a ho.
I put IMUS in the same category as: Whoopie Goldberg; Chris Matthews; Obama; Harry Reid; Nancy Pelosi; Jesse Jackson; Al Sharpton; Coombs; Maxine Waters type folk: Who the hell cares what they say, or where they say it — nothing more than worthless dribble as far as I am concerned.
The “nappy headed ho” man done speak. Imus kiss it, what a frigging loser.
It’s a good thing that Rush didn’t call her a “nappy-headed ho”.
Howard Stern used to say the same type of things about Imus 20 years ago. Imus is desperately trying to remain relevant and have everyone forget about his 'nappy headed hos' comment.
Sounds like the Pot calling the kettle black.One thing I know for certain is I listen to Rush Limbaugh every day.I have No clue what Imus is doing or what network’s he’s on and it will remain that way.
Yes Mr. Imus, that approach worked so well for you.
What a backstabber. When Imus lost his gig after his “nappy headed ho” crack, Rush Limbaugh came to his defense.
To Imus (wanna be cowboy)...Give it a rest, looser!
For those who don’t know it:
Imus’ wife Deidre is PRO-LIFE and defends the position PUBLICLY.
And here’s another factoid:
Don Imus is really the Rev. Don Imus. Apparently he paid to be ordained in order to officiate at a wedding ( just goes to show that anybody can be a Reverend in this country ).
Is he ever. What a looser. Coke head. DumbASS. . . .
Imus has forever sought for relevance and recognition. This is the best he’s been able to achieve.
Jessie (the pits) Jackson & Al(Twanda Browley) Sharpton already proved that. . . .
Don Imus. Howard Stern without the testosterone. He supports the company’s candidate like a good stooge.
