Bigoted crank Don Imus took media adulation of Tim Tebow to a new level Monday morning on his Fox Business Network program when he alleged those critical of the Denver quarterback were "hating on Jesus."
Bill Cunningham is a conservative talk radio host who really knows how to get his name in lights. Unfortunately, like Don Imus a few years back, he may have gone too far.
Predictably, Don Imus' comments yesterday about Adam "Ex-Pac" Jones have triggered more debate about the old man's motivations: Has he finally lost it? Will he be fired? Is he really just a hood-wearing racist hiding behind a shock jock's microphone? All legitimate questions.

That's his job: Be an old hillbilly crank and sometimes be the voice of the ignorant truth, for whatever purpose that serves.
If you prefer your radio hosts with faces like a 90-year-old saddle, then it's time to rejoice: Don Imus is back on the air!

Why was Imus racially taunting the Rutgers basketball team again? Not even he knows.
