"Here we go again....!" (LMAO!!!!)

I caught this on Hannity & Colmes a couple of nights ago. Decided to look it up after Marie's Two Cents mentioned Malkin was called a whore recently while hosting O'Reilly's show. Watch civil rights attorney, Leo Terrell. I thought this guy was going to burst a blood vessel.



The "progressives", by the way, are all giddy, believing that Laura Ingraham "stormed" off the set. Newsflash to you KosKiddies: It was a joke!

Listening to Michael Medved today, he reported that a WSJ piece got to the root of how all this broke out. It started out with someone at Media Matters listening in, at 6 in the morning.
On the morning of the original broadcast, there was little response to Mr. Imus's slur. Media Matters posted the video and transcript on its Web site and sent an email blast to several hundred reporters, as it does nearly every day. The post received dozens of comments, many heated, some more than 300 words long. The next day, top news outlets didn't mention the incident.
Apparently, a couple of days later, the National Association of Black Journalists eventually got wind of it. All they wanted was an apology. That's it.

And now we all know the rest.

Medved has an interesting observation: Apologizing might have led to Imus' demise. Medved noted how Ann Coulter was put in the media hotseat over her "faggot" comment in relation to John Edwards. She refused to back down. She refused to apologize. Eventually the fickle media and the short-attention span of the American public moved on; when it all blew over, Ann Coulter stood intact and none-the-worse-for-wear.

Imus may have been fired; but all this attention has probably rejuvenated his career. Howard Stern at Satellite Radio: .....move on over!

I think Imus' biggest baggage will be the fact that he sucked up to that race-profiteering windbag, Al Sharpton.

Apparently, Monty Johnson and the Duke LaCrosse Players have accepted Imus' apology.

And now Tom DeLay is calling for the Imussing of Rosie.

LOL!! I saw that episode. That was hillarious.

Oh Man check out Drudge, Sharpton is getting Death Threats!!

I had a feeling this whole thing was exploding!!

I hope there arent going to be riots and crap, I went through that when I lived in Cali, (Rodney King) I sure dont want to go through some Nation Wide thing.

Nothing like the feeling of knowing for sure if you call the police, they arent coming. And you are truly on your own. Pretty darn scary.

I was at UCLA during the Rodney King verdict. It was a bit surreal, at the time.

I just saw that the Duke Lacrosse Players accepted Imus apology LMAO!

There is so much going on at once it's hard to keep track.

Is anyone going to apologise to Michelle Malkin?

Before we know it the Nation of Islam will be in on this, heck we already have the Black Panthers, Jesse and Al.

I hope all these loones dont take to the streets.

Word,

My heavens you were close. I was off Normandie and Sepulveda in Torrance when Reginald Denny was drug out of his truck and half beat to death, then the helicoptors came and watching it on tv, and neighbors coming up and asking if we were armed, and then we all saw smoke everywhere it was utter pandemonium, remember that?

I was thinking wait a minute this is way up there on Normandie in South Central, and then before you knew it, it was everywhere.

Then the National Guard came (Kinda Late), and we were under curfew and oh Jesus I remember that so well. That's one of the reasons I moved to Oklahoma. I wasnt raising my kids in that crap.

Then I move here and Tim McVeigh blows up the Federal Building, I cant win Word I swear!

Thanks, marie....I do believe it's my 3rd...one from Chatterbox, one from Old Soldier...and I got an eagle's merit badge from Mike's America!

Thanks for that, Flag Gazer!

marie, you certainly seem to have excitement nipping at your heels.

I don't think I was ever in any danger. We were all barricaded in the dorms and limited to the campus. You were in the center of the action.

I have a photo I took next day of a rally on campus. Crazy time.

I just saw that the Duke Lacrosse Players accepted Imus apology LMAO!

Did you see the one from Monty Johnson? Was adding that as well, while you were leaving comments.

Blogger Marie's Two Cents said...

Well Congrat's anyway Word you sure deserve all of them :-)

No I didnt see Monty Johnson, I will have to re-read the whole thing again, I will do it in the morning, start my day off with another laugh.

Yes Word, I seem to get in some sticky messes, oh how I love spring time in Oklahoma, dodging Tornado's and all. I Love Oklahoma but I HAVE to find some where else to live I swear. Maybe Idaho or Wyoming or somewhere up there where there are no Tornados, Hurricains, or Earthquakes. Yeah right, something else will happen, might as well stay here.

One thing I can say at least we can get away from Tornados pretty well these days but you never know when those earthquakes are coming, those I dont miss.

'lazy napping blog-reader', Word?

Hmmmph...I prefer the term 'nappy-headed blogger'. Well, at least during early morning blogging..

I hadn't heard Sharpton was getting death threats. I'm having a hard time keeping up with all of this too.
I also saw this when it aired. Leo Terrell is truly obnoxious.

You're right, Wordsmith; Imus shouldn't have apologized and especially not to Sharpton!

LOL Word,

These new terms "Nifong'ed", "Imussing"

Tom Delay is right however, but now maybe after this fiasco Rosie will hush up.

Still no apology for Michelle!!

I like that skye.

Leo Terrell is truly obnoxious.

gayle, I was laughing so much at him, I wasn't finding him as obnoxious. He just sounded so comical to me: "Here we go" "There he goes!" "Here we go again!" And even when he was finding agreement with Colmes..the way he'd vocalize his agreement.

These new terms "Nifong'ed", "Imussing"

I think "imussification" kinda has a nice ring to it.

It irks me that the lefties have defined "swiftboating", since I disagree with the definition, given that I think the swiftboat vets had some valid grievances against John Kerry (Did any of you know that he served in Vietnam?).

Imus got what he deserved for attempting to kiss the ass of The Two Racist Fucks Sharpton and Jackson. Medved was right: Coulter at least had the BALLS to make her play and stand by it.

But here's the diff: Imus, being a Lib himself (albeit a country lib) felt COMPELLED to grovel on hands and hat and was hoisted on his very own petard of PC-dom by doing so.

Bottom line = one less Liberal conduit for their pointless messages. See ya, Don! You're a lot more stupid than you imagined, aren't you?

I'm kind of fed up with this whole racial thing. I have friends of all different races and it makes no difference to me at all. I just ask that they be able to shoot straight and not let their hot brass get in my lane while we're at the range.

mary,

Thanks for that! Sorry I had missed it. You'd be one of my picks, if I participated in these things.

If you folks are unfamiliar with Freedom Eden, I encourage everyone to go visit, and add it to your blogroll. I think Mary's is one of the first blogs I began visiting when I first started blogging myself.

j_g, you're such a firebrand! Your comments always crack me up and educate.

zeppelin, I do believe that an initial apology could have worked; so long as he didn't continue to cater to the fancies of the PC-mob. For a thumb-in-the-eye shock jock, I'm sure it harmed his reputation to be seen groveling for forgiveness from the "reverend", Sharpton.

Wordsmith, I've read that Imus is a registered Republican. Do you know whether it's true or not? I can't seem to find any proof of it. If he is, he sure doesn't sound like one. He reminds me of some registered Democrats I know who aren't liberal at all but don't understand what the Democratic party has become and don't believe me when I tell them. They think I'm just paranoid.

Where'd you read that from? I don't really know much about Imus. The one or two times I had caught his program on MSNBC, with long lulls of silence, I think he was putting down the President. I have heard that he voted for John Kerry in 2004. I don't know what he's registered as, other than a jerk (yes, even those who do good work for charity can be jerks).

Wordsmith, I don't remember where I read it exactly, but google "Imus is a registered Republican". All sorts of stuff will come up. I believe I read it in the comment section of Newsbusters, for one, and I've seen it several other places as well, but I don't know whether it's true or not. I read one who said he has heard Imus claim to be a registered Republican many times. This doesn't make it true. It could mean that libs are falsly claiming him to be a Republican, which isn't beyond them. That's why I asked you. I just don't know. If he's a registered Republican then he's a RINO for sure!

I wrote most of my thoughts about this on your other post but I did want to say that the Delay piece was very good.

Liberals only wish they could sufficiently tick Laura Ingraham off.
