Don Imus found to be Don Imus (Rush is a “fat, gutless, pill-popping loser”, says the I-Man)
Hotair ^ | 03/06/2012 | Jazz Shaw

Posted on 03/06/2012 6:43:08 AM PST by SeekAndFind

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 Monday’s news updates on Fox Business Network’s Imus In The Morning, host Don Imus went off on Rush Limbaugh‘s weekend apology to Sandra Fluke, calling Limbaugh a “fat, gutless, pill-popping loser.”

Imus expressed anger over Limbaugh’s 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 didn’t mean to personally attack her,” Imus said, “is gutless.” Imus took issue with Limbaugh’s “sustained, vile, personal attack” on Fluke over three days, and said that if he’s 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 women’s 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 Left’s 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. He’s 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ).

Good for her. I’m glad she’s pro-life, sincerely. But she’s also one of those evangelistic nutcase vegetarians who goes around trying to get everyone else to eat straw and grass like she does. And she’s a Romneybot.

I wanted to slap Imush in his big biscuit head when I heard him say that about Rush. It reminded me of the spineless husband who abuses his children because his wife gives him no respect and treats him like her bitch. What a pathetic excuse for a man Imush is.

We used to call his type a drugstore cowboy. Imus is no more than an old TV clown, like you saw on kids afternoon TV in the 50s and 60s.

The “cowboy” hype probably just a secret signal to the other Brokeback “cowboys”.

This really is just a critique of Imus in general.

Does anybody listen to this guy? He is on Fox business in the morning and even when you look at him it is almost impossible to figure out what he says. He mumbles and stutters so often you would think he is a stroke victim.

And not at just any wedding, I believe...wasn’t it a couple of his gay friends who wanted to get married? The guy who helped found the Wounded Warriors project? In Imus’s opinion, gay marriage is perfectly fine because, well, “they love each other; they’re so happy together.” THIS...coming from someone who purports to be a genuine cowboy? He’s such a goofball.

I never did understand Imus’ “talent”. And if he truly knew anything about recovery he’d know that he is a “snot slinging, commode hugging, obnoxious” drunk. If he was in recovery he’d be a former “snot slinger”. As it is, he’s a dry son of a bitch. Sorta’ like Bob Beckel.

I wonder how many times he cried real tears when he got down on his knees in front of the nice “nappy headed ladies” of Rutgers Basketball. As I understand he apoplogized for calling them “hos”. Not for saying they had nappy hair.

It’s amazing how quickly all of the people will sell their souls to keep the money coming in. I think Joe Wilson is the only one who didn’t apologize. I hope that’s the case.

I must have been drunk when I signed up for the Imus web site. The more you look at the CD, the more you realize it's a write off and he's living Scot free with his(?) kid and eco-wife. He claims to share a 40k sq. foot hacienda with kids with terminal cancer for a few weeks out of the years and what does he do the rest of the year? He looks dead on the CD and the wife is the one holding the reigns to the ranch and his fortune.
He can rant and rave all he wants and it's very difficult to determine when he's serious and when he's just a putz.
At the ranch he's very Serene and laid back, but how much interaction with the kids does he really have?
He shouldn't have been dropped from NBC. He did the right thing is meeting the gals and ask if they were offended( offended how, is their hair nappy?). Did Rush make untrue statements? I don't think so. The left wants to make a big deal out of his comments could lead to a perfect storm and I want to be alive to see the outcome.If we need to go into a major depression and start from scratch( some of us already are) then so be it. Both sides of the isle are full of corruption as are state and local reps. We need to clean up the land before it implodes as the Roman Empire did.

As someone who listens to this idiot, Imus has been dying for Rush to come on his show for YEARS. And when he went to WABC, it became even more intense. Rush always snubbed him. So now, of course, he’s busily hammering away at him.

I admit I listen to him too. But it has become increasingly more difficult. His guests, whom he fauns all over, are left wing Marxists for the most part. And his two “comedians” are as about as left wing as you can get. I heard that Monday rant and couldn't get an e-mail off quick enough to fox. It was despicable. I'm done with Imass!

Imus is starting to look like Mark Twain... as he appears right about now.

I could never stand Imus and his dim-witted cast of jibbering sycophants. If he drools an empty epithet these paid shills act as if he's Will Rogers. Imus is washed-up, washed-out and brain-dead.
