Isn't It Rich?


You can imagine the fury and scorn directed by Frank Rich at anyone associated with rampant anti-gay, anti-woman and racist commentary on the right. But his good old liberal friend, Don Imus? We have the following profile in courage:

"I'll have to wait and see how it plays out," he said. What would affect that decision? "How (Imus) comports himself and how the show shakes (out) when he gets back." ... "I'm not convinced he is a misogynist, racist guy," the columnist said...

Ultimately, Rich said he wanted reserve judgment until he had to make a decision about returning to the show: "I will decide when the question is asked." He stressed he was uneasy about dealing in a "hypothetical" situation.

Sounds like Newt Gingrich, right? Or one of the White House spokesmen Rich makes a living deriding for not being candid. Here's the kicker:

"If this is the pattern of the show, no one will want to appear" on it again.

If? These moments are so revealing, aren't they?
