  4. The only time most of us pay attention to Don Imus is when he's being scrutinized for some gaffes involving bad attempts at racially insensitive humor. Just like some gays are republicans, some right-wing radio hosts support gay marriage...

  5. To call Imus a right-wing radio host is truly ignorant. His criticism's of President Obama have always been rooted in policy disagreements, he's been a constant critic of the Iraq War (while at the same time raising millions of dollars for facilities to care for troops returning from the conflicts abroad) and he's never cast a vote for George W. Bush. He wrote in McCain's name in 2000 and enthusiastically supported Kerry in 2004. Imus has always held the attitude toward marriage equality that many of my generation (I'm 23) hold. He understands that if two men or two women get married, that does not affect his marriage in the least and he's often said that "Gay people deserve to be as miserable as everyone else." While he may like people who reject marriage equality (His enthusiastic support for Sen. Rick Santorum in 2006 was based on Santorum's fight for the Cure Autism Now Act) we know that Don is in the right place on this specific issue.

    If you can find a chance to look up Don's quotes about Bill White (President of the Intrepid Museum and Foundation) and how Don examined his own perceptions when White only sent an invite to a Christmas party to his wife, because White didn't think Don liked the fact that he was gay, you should.

    As a longtime Imus listener, Don has said some things that are definitely not PC about gays and lesbians, but because of the way that he has stepped up his support of the community as a matter of common sense, I'm willing to let that slide.

  6. Imus may be on the right side of this issue, and I'm happy for him about that.

    It doesn't change the fact that he is a radio shock jock, and as such he has been instrumental in debasing the tone of our political discourse.

    I remain reticent.
