The Cleaning Lady

The real problem with Imus isn't that he has a radio show, or even that he has a radio show which is simulcast on news network MSNBC, it's that all the very important members of the political and media establishment give him their stamp of approval.

Various corners of the wingnutosphere are trying to claim Imus is a liberal (he isn't), that if he was a conservative he'd be fired (he wouldn't be), and that liberals are giving him a pass. Sadly, to the extent that "liberals" are represented by people likes James Carville and Pat Tom Oliphant, on that last point they're actually correct.
