A Cautionary Tale

Have you ever wondered what happened to those blacklisted guests from the Imus program, since we never hear from them again? I decided to do some searching, and let me tell you - the results aren't pretty.

Exhibit A: Vice President Joe Biden. At one point he was a regular on the program, but eventually he earned a spot on the Weasel List. Recently, a reporter followed the Vice President around for a day in order to profile his everyday life. The results, as they say, were shocking.

Apparently, in a sad attempt to fill the Imus void in his life, Biden now spends his mornings by washing his aging car in the driveway, listening to the I-Man on the car radio, and softly sobbing to himself, reliving the memories, as he plucks out the Burger King wrappers from under the dashboard.

Gaze upon the photos from this sobering article, and melt with ruth:

Speaking of guest does anyone know the line up for the next to weeks while Imus is on Ranch Duty?

Will we be getting the best of Imus with Bernie hosting?

Al said...

Looks like Joe's car has the same tatoo that Biden has on his arm!

Wonder if Joe knows that Levon Helm has a new CD out(it's a GREAT CD, I might add)

Very funny! At first I thought it was for real - because with Biden, you never know. I hadn't noticed the source.

Does anyone remember why he got banned for life? Did he really?

Al said...

Biden got banned because he's a Moron!

I think when Imus got fired, Biden kind of chimed in that Imus deserved it...or something to that effect.

Don't know the schedule, other than that they're off for forever (or at least until 7/20).

Oh, Joe Biden...when he's not revealing the secret bunker under the Naval Observatory, he's getting a tattoo that matches his '81 Trans Am. :-) I think I recall seeing a bizarre quote from him after Imus was fired - he blamed Darfur on the I-Man, or something weird like that. (Who knew that the janjaweed listened to WFAN? )

Photo #2 is, seriously, one of the most skilled photoshops I've ever seen. I would love to be able to do something like that. (Well, by "that," I don't mean "putting Joe Biden's head atop a middle-aged shirtless man," but you know what I'm saying.)

Bernie hosting this morning. Good stuff. That guy Mark Simone is enough to make you want to punch something.

I switched off when the show was hiJacko'd

DL said...

LOL @@@ "hiJacko'd" Too funny. Kind of like the entire day or past two weeks on any media.

Not missing the guy in this house. Could care less.

To quote Cardinal Egan, "the only difference between the I-Man and Michael Jackson is that instead of waiting until after he died, the Reverend Al Sharpton danced after the I-Man was fired, you fugly old skunk, bejeez."

The Cardinal is a intelligent man. ("Can I get a what what, McCord?" ;)

Bernie did another stellar job this morning. He and Warner are good together. Hope he's on the rest of the week.

The following are a couple of comments that Fred Imus psted on the 'Outlaw Country' Facebook page yesterday...

"With Al Sharpton and Greta Van Susteren at the Staple Center at least all the crap is in one place.

Now I know why Letterman hates Sara Palin. I saw a photo of his wife. Wow was I suprised, I had no idea letterman married Kieth Richard"

CG said...

Fred's on Facebook? WOW!!!!! Why hasn't it spontaneously combusted yet? :)

I'm glad that Bernie and Warner are doing well...that's a good sign.

Mike said...

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost - It's Biden in a stall with a wide stance we want the most. Lord hear our prayer.

CG said...

Hahaha, nice :)

Al said...

Don't know who's a bigger Goof. Joe Biden or...

Fred Imus: "I'm not positive that I'm not the biological father of Michael Jacksons Kids."

CG said...

LOL, gotta love Fred...

The mental image of Fred "poking" someone is enough motivation to join Facebook...

Al said...

CG, you could be Fred's friend!

Al said...

Well, I guess since a bare-chested Joe Biden is still at the top of the blog, might as well post another thing Fred said...

Fred Imus: You know, if I'd a killed my first wife when I first thought about it, I'd be out of prison by now.
