Then there's the bizarre conspiracy theory floating around conservative circles. To wit: liberals only ganged up to have Imus fired, so that action could set a precedent to fire conservative pundits in the future. Imus as sacrificial lamb.
Let's assume this vast left-wing conspiracy exists then. Do conservatives really have good reason to be distraught should any of the following high-profile pundits get similarly axed or uninvited to the popular pundit panels they currently infest?
Anne Coulter: "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." And let's not forget the recent John Edwards remark. Among a gazillion such remarks.That transparency thing. I just don't get it. How do they not see their defense of such malignancy for what it is? It's pathological.
Rush Limbaugh: "[S]ince Obama has -- on his mother's side -- forebears of his mother had slaves, could we not say that if Obama wins the Democratic nomination and then wins the presidency, he will own Al Sharpton?"
Bill O'Reilly: "[M]any of the poor in New Orleans" did not evacuate the city before Hurricane Katrina because "[t]hey were drug-addicted" and "weren't going to get turned off from their source. ... They were thugs."
