The Profound Moral Commitments of Joe LiebermanComments
IMUS: So, I watched the basketball game last night between — a little bit of Rutgers and Tennessee, the women’s final.
ROSENBERG: Yeah, Tennessee won last night — seventh championship for [Tennessee coach] Pat Summitt, I-Man. They beat Rutgers by 13 points.
IMUS: That’s some rough girls from Rutgers. Man, they got tattoos and —
McGUIRK: Some hard-core hos.
IMUS: That’s some nappy-headed hos there.
Har-dee-har-har! You can see why MSNBC signed him up. (As the Media Matters story notes, this is not exactly an isolated incident.) Meanwhile, Roger points us to this story, who reminds us (the error Roger points to has now been corrected) about one of Imus’ regular guests:
Both Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, independent of Connecticut, and Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, recently appeared on the show, and media figures including Frank Rich of The New York Times and Chris Matthews of MSNBC have also spent time with Mr. Imus. Senator Barack Obama, Democrat of Illinois, appeared on the show some time ago to promote his book “The Audacity of Hope.”
Ah, yes, that Joe Lieberman, the nation’s self-appointed morality co-czar (with Rambin’ Gamblin’ Willie Bennett). Note to all television producers and video game developers: make sure there isn’t a hint of nudity, and use lots of racism instead, and you’ll be fine! Finding some way for Lieberman to address his number one priority–promoting Joe Lieberman–would also help.
…And here, Holy Joe proves himself once again to be a more reliable recycler of feeble right-wing spin that Arlen Specter. Bravo!
