Don Imus on JFK & Ford


Recommended Posts

Hey, if they go to trial we'll have an active case, and maybe they can call Ruth Paine to testify if she thinks the Rutgers BB team is a bunch of matty haired hose.

This has got to get better. Tim Miller, of course, is our friend who dropped by to visit and promote his books, including a Warren Report with a new intro by Ford, and Miller pleading that he really does believe in a conspiracy. Then he left in a huff and a puff without even leaving John Simkin a copy.

Now let me get this part straight. Miller has never published anything else before, gets Ford to sign 4,000 copies, apparently the last thing he died before he "crokes," as the story so aptly puts it, then after failing to drum up any book sales here Miller desides to buy a plug from Don Imus, whose claim to fame is defaming the Rutgers (Jersey) women's basketball team on national tv.

Then Miller is surprised that the plug backfires, and Imus ridicules both him and Ford, Flastsigned Press.com gets millions of hits but nobody buys the book, and Miller parlays Imus into a soon-to-be-thrown-out-of-court lawsuit filed pro bono by his brother in law that gets Miller an additional fifteen minutes of publicity.

And maybe somebody will buy the book, personally signed by the late, and only former President of the United States elected by the people of the fourteenth legislative district of Michigan.

Maybe the book will sell if it came with a custom made, official ceremonial, gold enlaid and platinum, decorative china plate with inlaid with a photo of Ford and Elvis.

Or take a full page out in the NYT. Or get Bob Vernon to shill for him.

Sometime during the '90s, Ford signed hardcover copies of the WC Report (with an inscription noting that the conclusions therein were Gospel), which in turn were sent to members of state legislators and judiciaries. This was a concerted and sinister campaign to counter Stone's JFK.

On it goes.

As for Don Imus: His claims to fame are his support, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, for numerous noble causes relating primarily to health and children's issues.

When, just a few years ago, his attacks on Cheney and big pharma became more than small nuisances, the Wall Street Journal was ordered to publish hit pieces on the radio host relating to alleged misuse of his Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer charity.

Imus, who had done nothing wrong, won an enormously expensive court battle and forced a WSJ retraction. But the shot into his bow could not be mistaken for anything else.

And when he stuck his cowboy boot-clad foot in his mouth in re the Rutgers basketball team (his own fault, to be sure), establishment sharks smelled blood in the water and moved in for the kill.

Don Imus is one of the good guys.
