Farah-n-Me, Ho Ho Ho

Last night, the always humorless Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily weighed in on Don Imus, condemning him in the strongest of terms. I didn't mention it until now because I sent Farah an email, and I wanted to wait to see if he published it. He didn't.

I wasn't surprised. Years ago, Joe and I used to be best buds. Well, maybe not, but we did correspond a number of times, always at my initiation naturally, but the relationship soured either when he learned I was a non-believer or when I leveled some criticism at one of his positions (I can't remember what) for the umpteenth time.

I did get one letter to him published. It was after he had apologized for being anti-Vietnam in the 70s. I wrote that he shouldn't have done that (apologized) because it was a meaningless gesture, not unlike Jane Fonda's apology. I said that he was a different person then, and knowing him, he strongly believed in the rightness of his opposition. I added that furthermore, he was still right to have opposed it.

Anyway, I sent the following to Joey:early this morning after he'd begun his column with this:

"For once in my life, I agree with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson."

That should tell you how monumentally wrong you are.
 
Having heard it firsthand, it was nothing at all. They were trying to be funny and they failed. That Imus apologized and went on Sharpton's show is what's grotesque.
 
"Viciously racist," you say? Now THAT'S funny!
 
Best,
 
Ted
 
Meanwhile, Ann Coulter has written a brilliantly funny and definitive column on the Imus matter, so if you're an open-miinded Malaysian Muslim, pro-free speech, or just love Ann unabashedly, you might want to check it out?!?.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. yeah, yeah, I read the article.There's a thunderstorm outside here to mark the occasion of me actually agreeing with Ann Coulter on this one.=)

  2. TedWest says:

    If you'd ever like to come here, I'll be happy to sponsor you!
    And you know it has nothing to do with you agreeing with Ann, and everything to do with you being more rational and reasonable than the average American.

  3. Hahaha….not anytime soon. Still saving cash for my holiday in San Francisco end of this year/early next year.
