Can you imagine if a Democrat – let’s just say Michael Steele’s counterpart across the aisle, Tim Kaine – had said the things Steele said about Afghanistan being a “war of choice.” What do you think Eric Cantor would have said to Don Imus in that case? Yeah, duh.
Anyway, here’s Don Imus’ response to Cantor’s refusal to say “yes” or “no” to a simple question:
You know, that’s the problem with these interviews, well, with me, because I get obsessed with, like I’ll ask somebody a question,…and then you won’t answer it…so then I’m sitting here, so then you keep talking, Charles can be a witness to this, you keep talking and I stop listening because all I’m thinking is the bastard won’t answer my question. I didn’t mean to call you a bastard, because you’re not…Yeah, in a generic, metaphorical sense. I didn’t mean you, specifically…or some rotten, lyin’…
Gotta love it when Don Imus speaks “metaphorically.” Heh.
