Well, I guess everyone has something good you can say about them.
Like most old time radio talkers, he came to fame during Reagan/Bush when the White House was fair game. He went after Clinton with the same vigor and found himself cut out of the cocktail party list. That didn’t play well with his trophy wife.
It was Imus that mentioned the White House intern under Clinton’s desk at the White House Correspondents dinner with Bill and Hill right next to the podium. Very uncomfortable moment. This was before Monica came out.
I am cheering the loss of clueless Willis. And the rest of the noon to four bimbo eruption on FBN. Three hours of Varney!
I used to appreciate Imus for his irreverent and politically incorrect comments. His gold digging wife and total brat son were very annoying, as was his constant shilling for the “green cleaning”. Then there was his gold plated retirement ranch paid for by getting people to donate to a ranch for kids with cancer. The final straw was the “nappy headed ho” incident where he had to grovel to Sharpton and kiss his butt. Never watched or listened after that.
Well Don, don’t let the door hit you in the Imus on the way out.
I listened back then too and would be weeping with laughter. Those parody songs were wickedly funny.
“Ah never asked Miss Lewinsky to lah [lie], not one time, not ever. It was actually more comfortable foah her on her knees.”
This has the absolutely genius lyrics Bob Dylan parody about Clinton. You almost have to listen to it twice to hear all the brilliant lines. No modern parodies come close.
And then it also contains Imus's "Me and Paula Jones" parody, wicked. One line stands out to me today as still being relevant: paraphrasing: "if I don't get immunity Hillary's gonna crucifYYY.... Me and Paula jones...." People today might forget that Hillary was the Heavy in Clinton's presidency and everybody knew it.
One more good one on there is "I Never Promised You a Full Pardon," which also talks about all his cronies ---- and Hillary ---- going to jail. We need to SAVE these gems.
At the end are some boxing parodies, the last good one is the one above.
Wait, Imus is not dead?
I will miss Bernard McGuirk
It has finally been made official. Long running politically incorrect radio show Imus in the Morning has been dropped by the Fox Business Network as part of the networks daytime schedule revamp.
Controversial talk show host Don Imus himself shared the news two weeks ago that his 6-year run at the network was coming to an end. But insiders say the change has been on the table since the start of the year.
One source says that Imus was set on moving to Texas and after a discussion with Fox Business CEO Roger Ailes, the two decided to end their business relationship amicably.
Imus in the Morning is expected to continue broadcasting even after it leaves the FBN lineup, but its still unclear what network will distribute the program.
