Rob Bartlett's Stuff
Unless you've been hunkered down in a lead-lined bomb shelter for the past six months, you already know that, after almost two years of virtual TV exile, Imus in the Morning is going over to Fox Business Network. Don't get me wrong, RFD is a great channel, especially for those of us obsessed with livestock, polka bands, and toy trains. But although the I-Man was raised on a cattle ranch, dresses as if he were one of the characters in Of Mice and Men and has a brother who has been known to have sex with farm animals, RFD was never a good fit. With the move to Fox, Imus is finally coming home. To be on a cutting-edge financial network is such sweet symmetry. Because, all kidding aside, and despite his image as a whiny, cranky, megalomaniacal and psychotic sadist in a jean jacket, what IS Imus, after all? A rich white guy.
