So is this the only blog in the world that hasn’t commented on the Don Imus thing? Well, here’s our comment: Don Imus is disgusting. But he’s been disgusting for a long, long time. That’s why CBS hired him and paid him so well.
So the whole Rutgers thing is just a modern-day counterpart to the medieval morality plays. Today, public personas are supposed to know which disgusting is fine and which isn’t. Imus blew it and lost his job. No tears from us.
For our part, we apologize to the ladies of the Rutgers basketball team for the despicable behavior of this white man as well as the cultural climate that allows such a man to get rich spewing his filth on our air waves.
But this cloud, too, has a silver lining. America may finally have had enough of the race-baiting triplets, Imus, Jackson, and Sharpton, together with all their bottom-dwelling, scum-sucking friends. You want proof? Check out this editorial by Joe Hicks, a man I’d like to have as a friend.
