Andrew Sullivan likes to refer to stories like this as coming “from the annals of chutzpah.” And boy, does this qualify as chutzpah. Don Imus — Don Freaking Imus — is calling Rush Limbaugh an insincere pig for his attack on Sandra Fluke:
“It was a vile personal attack on this woman and it was sustained,” Imus noted on Monday. “It was Wednesday and then come back and double down on Thursday and then come back and double down on Friday. And then, issue a lame apology on your website.”
“So were it me and I ran a radio station or whatever, I would make him go down there and apologize to her face to face. He owns a Gulfstream IV (jet). Get on it, go to Washington, take her to lunch and say, ‘Look, I’m sorry I said this stuff and I’ll never do it again. Period.’ Now, he’s an insincere pig. Pill-popping pinhead.”
He’s right, of course, but holy crap. Talk about the wrong person making that claim. I think the pot just called the kettle a slut.
