While this was already absurd, the Imus Affair has now reached epic silliness. In the past 24 hours:
– Imus was dropped from MSNBC for being offensive, but not offensive enough that CNN and FOX are running clips of his show from this morning.
– One of the Rutgers players has stated she was “scarred for life.” Really? Some jackass said something boorish to you, and you are scarred for life?
– Al Sharpton and his gang of nitwits are protesting CBS, and apparently protesting in the rain is tough work, as CNN just reported that Sharpton has asked CBS to host the protest indoors in the CBS lobby. Let’s all just hope there are no Jewish run small businesses in the area.
– Imus, who supported such radical right-wingers as John Kerry in 2004, Harold Ford in 2006, and who has spent the past four years calling Cheny and Rove fat pantsloads and gouhboys and stating they should be lined up against a wall and shot is now being fashioned as a conservative by Media Matters.
It looks like everyone is going to profit from the Imus gravy train before this is over.
*** Update ***
According to the Reverend Al, Imus calling those girls nappy-headed ho’s may have ended their careers.
