Skip to comments.Don Imus found to be Don Imus (Rush is a “fat, gutless, pill-popping loser”, says the I-Man)

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 Mondays news updates on Fox Business Networks Imus In The Morning, host Don Imus went off on Rush Limbaughs weekend apology to Sandra Fluke, calling Limbaugh a fat, gutless, pill-popping loser.
Imus expressed anger over Limbaughs 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 didnt mean to personally attack her, Imus said, is gutless. Imus took issue with Limbaughs sustained, vile, personal attack on Fluke over three days, and said that if hes 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 womens 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 Lefts 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. Hes 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.
Imus is a detestable cadaver who should know better from personal experience.
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.
Honestly I don’t think any “elite” has been as out of touch as ours here in America.
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”.
Imus is a nappy headed fart who no one outside of NYC or DC cares about
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.
ONLY IF I COULD BE SUCH A LOOSER!
imus needs to get a haircut...he looks like an 80 year old woman....not that i have anything against 80 year old women....the walking corpse has a face for radio for sure....
If Rush were black, Imadumbass wouldn’t have the courage to speak that way about him.
Imus is a vastly over paid no talent, know-nothing. The guy is as stupid as stupid can get. He’s not the least bit funny.
When that worthless little weasel finally kicks, I hope his gorgeous, intelligent, and conservative wife takes over. She is the real deal!!
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.
