How is it that Imus has any credibility? His history is that he was a DJ with a cocaine addiction and a penchant for not only saying racist things, but actually treating people who worked for him and near him in a disgusting way. Why is it that politicians give him the time of day? Just because he chooses to speak about politics makes him a political outlet? Fuck that then. Wheeere's Luke is now an important political outlet. I want motherfuckers fighting for our endorsement. It's not as if he has any listeners. I don't see why clowns go on his show.
Anyway, this apology he issued is really half assed:
“[I want to] apologize for an insensitive and ill-conceived remark we made the other morning referring to the Rutgers women’s basketball team. It was completely inappropriate, and we can understand why people were offended. Our characterization was thoughtless and stupid, and we are sorry.”Who is "we", Donny? Unless you are Smeagol and you're searching Middle Earth for your Precious, then you don't refer to yourself as "we". Apologize for your own actions and take some fucking responsibility. I don't think apologies work that way. It doesn't excuse you from whatever intolerances you're espousing. I know that most people don't even know who Imus is, and that's why they don't care, but I'm surprised that there isn't more of an uproar over this.
