Don Imus has been suspended for his recent politically incorrect comments ...

He also appeared on Al Sharpton's show today.

Here's my take: Imus doesn't discriminate; He says hurtful things about everyone. His shtick is saying outrageous things. The problem is, there are some things that you cannot joke about in our current political climate.

On the other hand, Imus has gotten away with a lot of politically incorrect comments, over the years, because he is part of the good 'ol boy establishment. If he were, say Hugh Hewitt or Rush Limbaugh, he would have been shut down years ago.

So what do you think? Is this political correctness run amok -- or is he getting what he deserves?

... Or (more cynical) is this just good for his ratings?
