Not that I’m a fan of Don Imus, okay?  Quite the opposite, in fact – I think he’s an asshole.

But, c’mon.  He’s getting all this (the latest being his canning by (P)MSNBC) for “nappy-headed hos”?

Puh-leeeeeeze.  Isn’t there enough real  news going on without this Salacious Sideshow of Suckitude™?

And a quick bitch-slap to the Rutgers bitches – who apparently have led the absolute most sheltered lives in recorded history, despite the fact that they go to school in frackin’ Noo Joisey, for fuck’s sake – because their widdle feewings are hurt:

In their first comments about Imus’ remarks, the team talked Tuesday about how the insult stung. Some of the women wiped away tears as their coach, C. Vivian Stringer, criticized Imus for “racist and sexist remarks that are deplorable, despicable, abominable and unconsionable” the day after they reached the NCAA finals.

The young women, half of them freshmen and eight of them black, expressed incredulity at how someone they’ve never met could say such a thing about them.

“All of our accomplishments were lost … we were stripped of this moment by the degrading comments made by Mr. Imus,” said Heather Zurich, a sophomore forward.

Don’t get out much, do you, bimbos?

Hell, I’ve been called every vile name in the book, and even some that ain’t  in the book.  (Google “Lord Spatula” if you don’t believe me.)  You don’t hear me  whining about “racist and sexist remarks that are deplorable, despicable, abominable and unconsionable”, do you?

Grow a pair, ladies.  Grow several pair, in fact.  Move the fuck on and forget about it.  Your pissy-faced reaction to all this has given it a shelf life at least one week longer (and still going) than it would’ve gotten otherwise.

Damn, but our society has become pussified.

    I agree, Spats. So the b-ball dykes got their feelings hurt. Life is rough: get a helmet.

    Personally, I think that Imus should have been canned years ago, but I can’t help wondering. Suppose the comment had been directed at the Southern Baptist Convention, and suppose the SBC had kicked up a big stink. Doe anyone really believe that that CBS and pmSNBC would have done anything other than to laugh at the “religious kooks”?

    It also sticks in my craw that *anyone* would give Sharpton any credibility at all. The creature is pure scum.

    I don’t agree with Ann on the first sentence from this quote, but I agree with the rest:

    “If Imus had called me a “towheaded ho” or Al Sharpton a “nappy-headed ho,” it would be what’s known as “funny.” (And if he called Anna Nicole Smith a “flaxen-headed ho,” it would be “absolutely accurate.”) But he attacked the looks and morals of utterly innocent women, who had done nothing to inject themselves into public debate.”

    I would also have fired him permanently for genuflecting to Al Sharpton.

    In the meantime, there’s an opening for Imus’ old job. I nominate Steven Pagones.
