This time, it’s Don Imus who is the focus. Imus made a bad joke and called the Rutgers female basketball team members a derogatory name. I don’t know much about Don Imus, nor do I really care. Really, let’s be honest, neither does anybody else since I don’t think the guy has much of an audience. We get to listen to Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson rail against Imus. Imus gets suspended for 2 weeks (if he was conservative, he’d have been fired.) The Rutgers team gets to hold a press conference. Whee! The thing I learned about this is that Al Sharpton actually has a radio show. Wow.
It’s probably not as stupid as the “Anna Nicole” brouhaha and hopefully it won’t last as long.
