Holy Crap, I agree with Alan Colmes!
Hannity & Colmes ^

Posted on 10/15/2007 6:07:14 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Holy crap! Alan Colmes has just taken some woman from NOW and some guy from the NABJ (Nat'l Association of Black Journalists) to task for opposing the return of Don Imus to radio!

Colmes is arguing that these people need to let the free market work!

My beeber is officially stuned.

I’m listening to it myself, and it is interesting. They both ripped this NOW Spokeshole Sonia Rossorio.

Both guests (detractors of Imus) generally got thier lunch handed to them.

The left lost its only effective radio voice when they
ran off Imus.

Bwahahahahhah!

Yeah, but don’t forget that Imus is a liberal, that’s why.

Maybe he caught a bug working so close to Hannity?

Those Truth bugs can be nasty.

Good for Colmes. Imus got a raw deal and apparently Hillary was behind it.

I am so sick of political correctness and the Thought Police that I have found myself coming to the defense of people with whom I strongly disagree.

I have zero use for Alan Colmes. IMHO, he appears to be a pathetic human who is looking for something that he will never find.

Why does Imus deserve to be deprived of his career and the right to free speech? Isn’t this what the Left likes to call McCarthyism? If he deserves this treatment, how about Al Sharpton and some of the other totally irresponsible big mouths on the Left?

...continuing.

Yesterday there was a thread that mentioned a bar in Britain, where they actually had a buzzer the proprieter could push to let the police know someone was smoking. Whether it was installed for that purpose or not, it was just chilling to think the police would trot right over there to stop the smoking.

Today you hold for 911, but let that buzzer go off and “we’re there!”

The sad part about Imus coming back is that WABC in New York has got him. I assume that that means that Curtis & Kuby are going bye-bye and Curtis goes back to overnights and fill-ins and Kuby goes back to being activist/attorney-at-law.

OTOH, there's a slim shot that they'll go the FM route and boot "Scott & Todd".

Whichever they do, I'll be listening to whichever stays on the air. I aint listening to Imus. quack quack

Maybe some of what Sean Hannity says day in and day out to Colmes on the TV show has sunk in.

The man is simply unwilling to call a slimy politician what he/she is when given the opportunity.

What sort of shock jock is that?

May Imus be reduced to reporting school cancellations during snowstorms and endless High School Football scores.

You must not have heard

1) What he's thought of Hillary, etc. (see the "Speech from Hell")
2) The stuff he's said since the whole controversy erupted

This is going to be a totally different Imus than the one we saw mumbling around MSNBC weekday mornings. He is going to have a chip on his shoulder.

I agree with you. I was shocked to see Alan saying something reasonable. Then, of course, the next subject came up of Rush. Alan said he was going to bid on the Dingi Harry Letter and then put it right back up on EBAY for sale and give the proceeds to the ACLU. I couldn’t help but think of that idiot on the commercial who bids at an uppity art sale, then put it immediately back up for sale. What a putz.

It helps that Alan Colmes has himself been a radio host for most of his career. In fact, the two worked together at WNBC back in the 1980s.

Don Imus is a special case. He’s not unfriendly to Democrats in general. Hillary nailed him because he once attacked the clintons, and she was obviously afraid he might do it again.

I suspect the only reason more talking heads didn’t speak up to defend Imus—since they all agree in supporting freedom of speech for talking heads—is that they are terrified that the Witch might do the same thing to them. She is a control freak, who is not going to let any talking heads get out of line without pounding them.

Continue listening to Alan Colmes...he just said he wanted to bid on the Ebay purchase of Rush's letter, AND RE-SELL IT ON EBAY AND GIVE THE PROCEEDS TO THE ACLU------COLMES WOULD TAKE THE $ AWAY FROM THE CHILDREN OF OUR FALLEN MILITARY AND GIVE THAT $ TO THE A.C.L.U.????????

There is NO defending that awful statement!!!!

Yes I did. I also stoped by the Limbaugh site and he’s going to match the winning bid. It was up to $50,100. Very cool!

I recall that speech. I saw it on C-Span I think, live when it happened. Thanks for the refresh.

I used to enjoy the Imus program regularly, but in 2004 with the radio fellating that was going on with the Kerry Kampaign, I turned Imus off for good.

I have not missed him (because I wasn’t listening anyhow)since his ridiculously orchestrated lynching by Sharpton et al.

He will have to alienate a lot of Liberals out loud before I would ever consider tuning in to his program again.

"Colmes is married to Dr. Jocelyn Crowley who is currently an associate professor in the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, where she is also affiliated with the Department of Women's Studies. She is the sister of Monica Crowley, who has substituted several times for Hannity on Hannity & Colmes."

Yeah, but don’t forget that Imus is a liberal, that’s why.

He's disgustingly vulgar, but I give him brownie points for 1. Being pro-life (though it is not a big deal to him, I guess) and 2. Referring to Mrs. Clinton as Satan.
