Imus On WHY Hillary Got Elected To The Senate....sheesh he's an idiot
and I'm supporting Obama

On the March 7 edition of Imus in the Morning, host Don Imus asserted that Sen. Hillary Clinton won her campaign for a U.S. Senate seat due to "a sympathy vote," adding, "She came here, everybody felt sorry for her 'cause her fat ..." At that point, guest and Fox News host Alan Colmes interjected, asking, "Why did she get re-elected?" Imus continued: "'Cause her fat, stupid husband was getting BJs from the poor little intern there in the Oval Office."

1. this from Media Matters
From the March 7 edition of ABC Radio Networks' Imus in the Morning:

IMUS: Aside from working for big-time law firms and being a doormat for her stupid husband, what in the 35 years' experience Hillary Clinton talks about would you like to highlight here this morning, Mr. Colmes?

COLMES: Well, you've just covered everything, haven't you?

IMUS: Well, no, I haven't. That's why I'm asking you.

COLMES: On the stupid husband, I mean, during the Clinton years, we had a good economy, things were going well, we were relative peace, we had employment was up, things were going great in this country. People would love to go back to the way things were 10 years ago.

IMUS: Oh, never mind. What did she do?

COLMES: What did she do?

IMUS: Why don't we answer that question, Mr. Colmes?

COLMES: She was the sen-- first of all, she got elected to -- everybody said she couldn't get elected to the Senate. She couldn't do anything. She's worked on transparency; she's worked on a number of issues --

IMUS: Oh, but she ran against a car salesman. She ran against a -- she ran against some real estate loser. I live in Manhattan. I had to vote in that election.

COLMES: What? Rick Lazio?

IMUS: It was a sympathy vote. She came here, everybody felt sorry for her 'cause her fat --

COLMES: If she -- how did she -- why did she get re-elected?

IMUS: 'Cause her fat, stupid husband was getting BJs from the poor little intern there in the Oval Office.

COLMES: You know, I'm starting to get the sense you don't like the Clintons.

IMUS: And that's how sharp she was. She couldn't figure out that her husband was having an affair with one of the people who works for him. They're in the White House, I mean, hello?

COLMES: And that means she shouldn't be president of the United States? And hey, how do you know she didn't know?

IMUS: I don't know that.

COLMES: Maybe she did know.

IMUS: She didn't -- she suggested she didn't know.

COLMES: Well, you know, the fact -- but is that relevant in terms of whether she'd be a good senator or a good president?

IMUS: Oh, I don't know.

COLMES: I mean, she beat -- she was also re-elected to the Senate.

IMUS: If the intern could sneak in the White House and put some lipstick on his dipstick --

CHARLES McCORD (news anchor): Oh no.

IMUS: -- maybe a terrorist could get in there with a bomb. Who knows?

COLMES: Yeah, if Monica Lewinsky can deliver pizza to the Oval Office, that means a terrorist is going to attack us. That's a really good analogy.

IMUS: I could make that work if you give me a couple of minutes.

COLMES: That's a really, really good analogy.

2. That must have been something -- Imus discussing Bill Clinton's stupidity.

3. Imus. Alwyas taking the high road with insightful, illuminating political analysis.

And that is the most backbone Colmes has shown in quite a while.

on edit: added the snarky Colmes comment.

7. The Double-Edged Sword...
This reminds me of the Dave Berg cartoon in Mad waaaay back when showing two kids beating up on each other...one of the kid's older brother steps in and starts beating up the kid who was attacking his brother. After pulling them apart, he looks at the kid he's just messed up and says "No one hits my little brother, but me", then whacks his brother.

Many are not happy (understatement) with a lot of the trash Clinton and her surrogates have been throwing around lately. They risk alienating a lot more people than they'll appeal to...but, it's one thing for attacks to come from within the party and, for the most part, on substansive matter, and from some Neandertal old codger whose tried to make his name by bashing Senator Clinton.

This isn't that much different than what Tweety said that got him in hot water at MSNBC...but what we're really hearing is the "water cooler" talk these people have among each other. The memes and yuks they share at the drinkie drinkie parties and on the phone among themselves as they impress one another. Imus needs to make headlines to make his new masters, Citadel Broadcasting happy...and this means making headlines. Let's see how much play the I-man gets.
