    On Thursday, Don Imus, whom MSNBC fired in 2007 after he referred to the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy headed hos" on the network, said he could not believe MSNBC President Phil Griffin is going to keep Martin Bashir on the air after he suggested someone should urinate or defecate in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's mouth.

    Fox Business’s Don Imus had a delicious trifecta Thursday trashing three perilously liberal journalists in less than 90 seconds. After telling Jonathan Alter to “shove” his request to come on the program and hawk his new book, Imus called Howard Fineman a “sniveling little weasel” and Jon Meacham a “phony b*st*rd” (video follows with transcript and commentary): DON IMUS: "I’m in a horrible mood because of a couple of reasons. And I don’t like it when people tell me what a great friend they are of mine, because I know it’s nonsense. And here’s, you don’t need to tell me...

    I was tuning around channels the other morning and tuned into "Imus In the Morning". He had some inane/insane comments and suddenly he went on a rant. He was defending that commie bit*h who said kids should be brought up by the "collective". He also defended the word 'collective' stating it was NOT a communist word. He called Sarah Palin a number of names, he called Rush a fat, pill popping pig plus few other nasty names. His 'sidekick' Colin McShane just sat there and agreed half heartedly (he strikes me as being terminally stupid). He ranted like a village...

Imus then asked, “How’s that working out for you, by the way?” “Well not so well, but I’m not angry,” Holder said. “I cope with it in other ways.”

Paul said there are lots of other things to criticize Obama for, but that it is not reasonable to expect that a President will know how to “fix oil leaks.” What Paul did not say is that it is Obama himself who has claimed he’s on top of this problem and that the Government will see to it that it gets fixed and those responsible are held accountable.

We have another panty-wearing liberal dickweed from Hollywood - of course!" Imus told McGuirk. McGuirk dubbed Hanks "Tehran Tom" for remarks the actor made March 5 on-set of MSNBC to promote "The Pacific," the HBO mini-series he helped produce.

Imus appeared on the Fox News Channel's Nov. 24 "Hannity" program and had some disparaging words for the current administration's economic policy. He told viewers that Obama's associations with Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers weren't the problem (h/t Erick Erickson at RedState.com). "You had me convinced - yes, he was. But you had me convinced that Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and some of these people are all going to be in the Cabinet. We'd be better off if they were," Imus said. ...more...

The seven minute interview that took place in studio during the 7amET hour of Imus’ FBN show never got serious, but the jovial atmosphere did allow Imus to put Beck on the hot seat. Specifically, about whether Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh hate him. The beginning of the interview was largely based around Imus and Beck reflecting at their time as alcoholics, and how they turned their lives...

    Rumors have been swirling about Fox courting cancer-stricken, old racist coot Don Imus to be part of their morning lineup, and now it seems they're close to reaching a deal. The question is: What the hell took them so long? Brian Stelter reports in today's New York Times that Fox Business is hoping to simulcast Imus' utterly unlistenable radio show in the same way MSNBC did before they fired him after the "nappy-headed hoes" incident involving the Rutgers women's basketball team a couple of years ago. Stelter says that the deal is in "advanced negotiations" and that Fox hopes Imus'...

The notions that as young African-American women — who I hope will be athletes — that that somehow makes them less beautiful or less important. It was a degrading comment. It’s one that I’m not interested...

    ""I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude."

    Radio shock jock Don Imus insisted he was joking when he threatened to shoot WTKK host Jay Severin during yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day broadcast in Boston - but Severin’s agent doesn’t buy it and called the I-Man’s explanation “pathetic.” The early morning showdown at the Wilbur Theatre - where the 68-year-old Imus told Severin to get off the stage or he’d shoot him - sparked a war of words yesterday between the two camps. “I heard that Imus’ spokesman tried to characterize this as an ‘obvious joke’ on Imus’ part. That’s pathetic,” said Severin’s agent and attorney, George Tobia. “Leaving...

    Radio shock jock Don Imus threatened to shoot WTKK host Jay Severin during this morning’s St. Patrick’s Day broadcast in Boston. The confrontation - which both Imus and Severin confirm - occurred shortly after 6 a.m. when Severin went up on the Wilbur Theatre stage during a commercial break to say hello to friends who are members of the “Imus in the Morning” cast. The exchange came a day after Imus’ dramatic revelation that he has prostate cancer.

    When Jonas Salk invented polio vaccine, he was a hero — and I’m a terrorist?” he jokes, referring to a placard denouncing him at a recent demonstration by antivaccine activists outside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. In recent years, the debate over vaccines and autism, which began in fear and confusion, has hardened into anger. As Dr. Offit’s book details, numerous studies of thimerosal, measles virus and other alleged autism triggers in vaccines have been conducted, and hundreds of children with diagnoses of autism have undergone what he considers sham treatments and been “cured.” Both sides...

    On Colin Powell and other Republicans doubting Palin: Asks "What's their problem?" Calls her the "most popular governor in America," lists her accomplishments in Alaska. Says Bill Clinton was "pretty much derided" when he came out of a small state to run for president. "I'm amazed." Says just because she hasn't been to a "Georgetown cocktail party" doesn't mean she's not ready for the job. "I think she's the most qualified of anyone recently who has run for vice president to tell you the truth... I'm frankly entertained at the elitist attidue toward a person who is a proven leader."...
