Imus Fired, John Kerry, Imus Racist Comments


To Repay Imus, Kerry Waits Far Too Long

With friends like John Kerry, who needs enemies?

Proving once again just how worthless he can be, the Massachusetts senator has come out swinging for his pal Don Imus.

Isn't this a clear case of too little, too late? Where was he about nine days ago?

Previously, we've written about the I-Man's longstanding support for Kerry, which included a full endorsement in the 2004 presidential contest. In attempting to label Imus a conservative, liberal activists have recently tried to sweep away that unpleasant fact.

Now, with Imus fired and the issue fading behind yesterday's Virginia Tech atrocity, Kerry has stood up to "help" his fallen friend:

Kerry: Imus shouldn’t have been kicked off the air

BOSTON - (AP) - U.S. Sen. John Kerry says Don Imus shouldn’t have been fired, adding he would be willing to appear on a future Imus show as long as it wasn’t "the same-old, same-old."

"The punishment has to fit the crime, so to speak," Kerry, D-Mass., said during an interview to be broadcast Tuesday on NY1-TV, adding that Imus should have instead faced "a long suspension or a strong suspension."

Imus was fired last week for calling the Rutgers University women’s basketball team "nappy-headed hos."

Kerry pointed to the decision by members of the team to accept an apology from Imus.

"To me it was in the hands of the young women and you know they made the judgment that they thought he was genuine and they felt they could forgive him," Kerry said. "I think it was appropriate to pay a price on the airwaves, but I’m not sure that it was appropriate to say you’re off forever."

Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee for president and a frequent guest of Imus, also said he would be willing to appear again with Imus if he were to return to the airwaves.

"It would depend on what the context of the show was," Kerry said. "If it goes back to doing the same-old same-old I’d have trouble doing that, but if it’s a different show and he says it’s going to be different, sure."

Kerry had no problem appearing on the "same- old same- old" Imus show a number of times, however, even while there were many documented instances of racism and other nasty, unfair attacks on people who clearly didn't deserve them.

To the other suck- ups in the mainstream media, let this serve as a lesson: don't waste your energy kissing John Kerry's behind, it won't save you in a pinch. This man looks out only for himself.

  • This is a post of genius!

    You manage to imply that registered Republican Imus is a liberal!

    And that snooty Northeastern wind-surfing elitist liberal Kerry has betrayed him! (Rather as he likes to betray the working man in general!)

    I'm very impressed. Every problem in the world is the fault of liberals.

    Who's paying for this stuff?

    Could it be Soros' sinister cabal?

  • Having listened to Imus for 12 years daily, and over time for 30 years, he's best described as a Libertarian.

    And since CBS is still paying some $10M/yr (for the next 3.5 years) for nothing right now, don't be shocked if an accord is struck before too long.

    You can't keep good talent down.

  • Another case of too little too late for Seanator Thurston Howell III. Of course he couldn't be bothered to defend Imus when the issue was hot 9 days ago. Let me look into my crystal ball and see what Seanator Horse Face will do once he starts getting attacked by the libs for his statement.... owa..tagoo..siam ( repeat that 3 times boys & girls... 5 if you're a liberal) I see a flip flop in the senior citizen junior seanators future.....

  • fer crissakes Maloney, you may be the only person spunking on a blog that gives a damn what Kerry has to say about the time of day, nevermind Imus.

    He's over. Just because you got "Boston on the Brain" doesn't mean anyone else gives a damn what he or TerAAzza got to say.

  • tc is correct

    kerry is irrelevant

    this was done by design
    before his 2004 candidacy
    was even announced

  • Hey, dear friend Hashfanatic, is that some sort of haiku you just wrote?

    I didn't count the syllables or anything, but that's how it looks on my page.
