He's Back

I am a notorious early riser and for years I watched Imus in the Morning on MSNBC. For years I have been unable to watch Don Imus and sideman Charles McCord as they were on RFD with talk of pork futures, but now He’s Back!

Don Imus is now on the Fox Business Network from 6 until 9 a.m. every morning. After his stupid remarks about the Rutgers women’s basketball team and his firing from MSNBC he spent several years on RFD, but now he is back. I have watched nothing else in the early hours as I work on book manuscripts since he came back near the end of 2009.

The irreverent humor of Imus, who is “fighting a courageous battle with prostate cancer” cracks me up. From Rob Bartlett’s “Gangsta Mickey,” Mickey Mouse with a “negro dialect” as Harry Reid might say,Tony Powell, who does a poetic Reverend Jesse Jackson or Producer Bernie “Cardinal Eagan,” no one is off limits.

With some the beautiful women from Fox appearing as guests and musical guests, Imus is back and I hope he destroys the pathetic Morning Joe on MSNBC that took his place in the ratings. Among the ladies is Dagen McDowell, who hails from Brookneal, Virginia, and graduated from Wake Forest, and engages Imus with talk of her family that leads to much good natured Southern bashing.

Imus is well known for his ranch in New Mexico, where every summer he and his wife, Deidre, host kids with cancer.
