IMUS BASHERS FACE VENGEANCE
NY Post ^ | 11/29/07 | Richard Johnson

Posted on 11/29/2007 1:15:28 PM PST by rocksblues

ALL those politically correct types who piled on last April when Don Imus went down for making his bad "nappy-headed ho's" joke had better duck and cover on Monday, when the I-Man goes back to work on WABC Radio.

"I think he will have some scores to settle," the station's general manager, Phil Boyce, told Page Six yesterday.

It is doubtful Imus will ever forgive CBS chief Les Moonves, who fired him, or regular guest Tim Russert, the host of NBC's "Meet the Press," who was "an invisible man" while Imus was under attack.

Private eye Bo Dietl, who will join Imus in the 8 a.m. hour on Monday, also named Harold Ford Jr. and Al Roker as two Imus regulars who abandoned him in his hour of need.

Imus is good in small doses. I love his cadre, and he is an excellent interviewer.

Did Imus or anyone else seriously think these people were his friends? They kissed up to him while he could do something for them, but not a one of them was going to be in a foxhole with him. And I don’t remember: when Al D’Amato was a Senator and got in trouble for doing an on-air Japanese caricature of Judge Lance Ito, did Imus defend him, or was he as AWOL as these other people later were with him?

I would like to see him start out with an attack on the plants masquerading as Democrat debates.

Not this one, as soon as he said he supported sKerry,

I said bye-bye, and stopped listening to him.

Imus needs to go after the Black Klux Klanners like Sharpton and Jackson and the other race warlords. They were the ones who went after Imus.

Yup. Imus may of been a Coke-Head but has conservative thoughts occasionally. Hope he follows through on his thoughts.

Oh my dear, I was not venting at you.

Just saying I had no mercy for him. He opened his mouth and got what he deserved.

He pandered to liberals and they abandoned him.

I used to listen to him a lot until he voted for sKerry.

I’ll be interested in how Imus handles himself. I also wonder how his young wife has adjusted, LOL.

Maybe he’ll get his revenge like Hillary does - people disappear or get in professional trouble months and years later, ha.

Imus has worn out his welcome as far as I am concerned. But I will say this for him: He dances with the one that brought him. He isn’t a fair weather friend, but seems to be the kind of guy that would help you dig your way out of the ditch you found yourself in. He also helps a lot of little kids with no hope in their lives, so I’ll give him a pass and just keep movin’ on.

I suspect the I-Man knows Hillary was the driving force behind the push to get him off the air. If that’s the case, this is gonna be fun - expect his attacks on her to make headlines.

Wow, what a whiner.

He has gone thru nothing compared to the troops, the President, and VP, he contentiously trashed as liars and war criminals, for 6 years running.

He and his lib friends aided and abetting our enemies daily, undermining the mission and our soldiers.

Hope he fails, and burns in hell.

Imus has been enrolled in a Hillary re-education camp - he’ll be a shill for Hill else he goes back for remedial training...

Never liked Imus. He’s a mumble mouthed idiot but I notice one name not on his revenge list. Al Sharpton. How come Imus? You gave hickies to his posterior and he still lynched you. Bet Imus is too scared to even mention the Rev. Al.

His is one of the dullest and dumbest shows on the dial. I was thrilled when I heard he wasn’t coming back to WFAN in New York. I couldn’t stand when this senile turd hijacked my fine sports station.

I agree with you, Hillary was the driving force behind the big uproar over his stupid comment. It was someone at Media Matters that was monitoring the show and caught the remark. Then Sharpton (in Hillary’s pant suit pocket) ...took off with the remark ....magnified it 100 times...and all hell broke loose in no time at all.

It all started a couple of weeks before the actual remark was made when ...Tim Russert and Donald Trump attempted to get Imus to invite Hillary on his show. He refused and would call her SATIN every time her name was mentioned.

The proof being shortly after Joe Scarborough took over the Imus show ...........GUESS WHO SHOWS UP FOR AN INTERVIEW ......yup......THE HILDABEAST HERSELF !!

Cackles and all !!

You don’t think she was behind it ....THINK AGAIN !!

I would love to hear Imus return to the airwaves ....I want to hear what he has to say about SATIN !! What a shame the program will not be on in my area !!
