Don Imus strikes again

Channeling Chris Matthews:

On the March 7 edition of Imus in the Morning, host Don Imus asserted that Sen. Hillary Clinton won her campaign for a U.S. Senate seat due to "a sympathy vote," adding, "She came here, everybody felt sorry for her 'cause her fat ..." At that point, guest and Fox News host Alan Colmes interjected, asking, "[W]hy did she get re-elected?" Imus continued: "'Cause her fat, stupid husband was getting BJs from the poor little intern there in the Oval Office."

What? No refrain of the I-Man's infamous Hillary-bashing, The Lady is a Tramp? People will say Imus has lost his touch. Or he's out of touch. Or touched in the head. How about all of the above.

Perhaps Serious People--NBC's Tim Russert, CBS anchor Bob Scheiffer, and Congressional Quarterly's Craig Crawford--should stop validating a rotting cadaver's career of fouling up the air waves with hate-filled invectives and fatuous gossip. Oh, I suppose they feel sympathy for Imus' condition. Must be terrible for Don to be continually mistaken for a litter box.
