My morning news was filled with calls for the head of Imus. I've tried to watch his show a couple of times - they air it on MSNBC in the mornings - but he is boring. Mushmouthed, slurry words boring. He could be funny, I guess, I just can't understand half of what he says.
But I guess he was clear enough when he said something really bad about a college women's basketball team. Clear enough for Al Sharpton to be calling for Imus to be fired.
He should be fired. I mean, he called a group of women athletes from a very prestigious college, um..."nappy haired ho's"...I believe is what he said. That is wrong on so many levels that I can't believe it came from a grown man.
And after we are finished firing Imus, let's fire Bill O'Reilly for saying that an eleven year old boy enjoyed being sodomized by his captor for four years. Let's fire Rosie O'Donnell for her hideously insulting "Chinese person" imitation (and most of everything else that flies out of her mouth without checking in with her common sense first). Then let's fire Rush Limbaugh for all the hateful things he says, then Anne Coulter.
Let's fire them all! Looney liberal lefties and fundie fanatic righties and everyone in between! Fire them! Restore some dignity and decorum to the "news". Restore civility and good old fashioned common courtesy.
(But we won't, will we, America? Come on, admit it, you just love it when someone on 'your' side gets a good, nasty zinger off on someone on 'that' side. It sends a jolt of pleasure right on up into your cerebellum, that sneaky, oh-so-bad-it's-good feeling that you love love LOVE. Admit it. You must love it. Those nasties have the highest ratings going. Some one is watching.)
Loki sez: Look ma, we're playing Rosie and Donald! Maybe CNN will do a report about us! Because celebrity feuds are BIG NEWS!
