I was thinking this exact thing today. You know who’s sticking up for him the most—conservative talk radio hosts and Alan Colmes oddly enough.

Howie Carr column ping.

Read the part about Imus worshipping Kerry, Maureen Dowd;
cursing Swift Boat Vets for the Truth, etc...
liberals are claiming Imus is a conservative. No way!

The Beautiful People spent all week stampeding to the microphone to announce, as one female from Time magazine said yesterday, that they won’t be appearing on the Imus Show anymore.

No kidding, honey. Nobody will ever be appearing on the Imus show again, not even Imus.

That's great.

"...But the most interesting thing about Imus’ sudden demise is how few of the assorted coatholders, front-runners, bumkissers and drive-by pundits who called in every morning could be bothered to stand up for the I-man in his moment of need...."

You know this is so true! David Gregory practically kissed Imus a few weeks ago and was reporting it with relish. Olbermann, I heard, quietly went to his bosses and recommended Imus be fired. All these people who eagerly appeared on his show practically don't know him now.

I listened to Imus for about 2 yr. Then, I decided he was an idiot and changed morning drivetime channels. There are free speech issues, but Imus overextended his welcome in my car.

-—Until his idiotic flameout, Don Imus was the nearest thing the liberals ever had to a success story in talk radio. He worshipped John Kerry. He fawned over Maureen Dowd. He cursed the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. After Saddam was executed, Imus joked with a local plagiarist about how Dick Cheney would handle himself on the gallows.-—

No tears here. No free speech rights were violated. No great truth was silenced.

True, it was one of the sillier PC witch hunts ever foisted on the American public and firing him was a great overreaction.

However, as Imus once said about politicians, “They ask us what we want. We just want them to go away.” Well, Imus, it’s time to just go away.

Wow. I just posted an excerpt from Juvenal on another thread, and this column reads just like it, so here it is again:

And now the flames are hissing, and amid the roar of furnace and of bellows the head of the mighty Sejanus, the darling of the mob, is burning and crackling ... Up with the laurel wreaths over your doors! Lead forth a grand chalked bull to the Capitol! Sejanus is being dragged along by a hook, as a show and a joy to all! "What a lip the fellow had! What a face!" - "Believe me, I never liked the man!" - "But on what charge was he condemned? Who informed against him? What was the evidence, who the witnesses who made good the case?" - "Nothing of the sort; a great and wordy letter came from Capri" - "Good; I ask no more."

- Juvenal, Satire X

The "great and wordy letter" was from Tiberius. I guess he would correspond to Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton.

All his new so-called friends ran away and hid on him. Think about that unctuous NBC rumpswab David Gregory. Wednesday night, he went on MSNBC looking like his dog just got run over. But by yesterday morning, Gregory was back on top of his game. He apologized to Jesse Jackson for ever having gone on the Imus show.

Heh. I don't even want to know what a rumpswab is, but that's funny.

Can you say, Leftist Media Phony?

I thought you could.

That was the first thing I noticed when I watched Hardball.

The lesson learned here is that you can NEVER, EVER, count on a Washington Liberal when times get tough.

In the end, the only thing they are interested in is thier own skin, and “friends” are just another tool for the path to power, or to a “Journalist”, an inside source to be used until burned...

All the Party Circuit “friends” he had just two short weeks ago, will do anything not to be associated with him now.

Such is the way of The New McCarthyism, and the PC Thought Police...

he’ll do a “rehabracadabra” and be on XM satellite in a few weeks, and he’ll be bashing the hell out of the conservatives that defended him, and still fawning over the libs that left him on the roadside. Mark my words. Libs are as dumb as they come.

“...your base isn’t the people who will stand behind you when you’re right, but the people who will stand behind you when you’re wrong.”

Heck, as the PResident can attest, there’ll be people who won’t even stand for you when you are right.

This was a perfect example of the self serving media frenzy.
Out of the four or five people I even heard making comments about what he said, most said is was an off color joke that wasn’t meant to really harm anyone.

But the media, once it got a hold of it, just tried to outdo itself.

Cripes, if an asteroid had hit us, they woulda said “Just Breaking: Another planet just hit Earth”... “now back to the important stuff, like how Imus is responsible for slavery, drug addiction, single parent homes, and the Darfur refugee camp”

Imus is just one the the ‘useful idiots’ who is thrown overboard by the socialists. This charade is the foreboding of things to come and the real targets are going to be identified soon when the congress start pressing for the eliminating of ALL talk radio.

Imus will be used as an example to be used why they are all ‘enemies of the state’.

But Gregory just did what was expected of him. When the going gets tough, the tough - hey, come back here!

No kidding, honey. Nobody will ever be appearing on the Imus show again, not even Imus.

Two good lines. On a seriouis note, this would be an excellent time to get religion. In the end, when all is against you, who will stand with you if you ask Him? The Lord our God. I do not have a bone to pick in this fight - at least I don't think I do. However, it would be nice if a priest or pastor would contact Imus and say, I forgive you and if you want to talk and pray, here is my number. This reminds me of Duke Cunningham and how nobody stood by him when he went down. It's a troubled world we live in.
