Ana Marie Cox, aka the lady formerly known as Wonkette, aka the blogger who brought us the sordid tales of DC slut Jessica Cutler, has taken a brave stand today.
In between detailing how she is in the “inner media circle” and gushing about her media eliteness, she has decided that now that she is a media superstar, she no longer is willing nor needs to put up with putrid filth like Don Imus, and instead will hang out with Joe Klein at Swampland.
And here is the link in case you think I am being unfair.
Mamas, don’t let you babies grow up to be media ho’s.

Tom Maguire and I are eye to eye on this one, as he gets down on his knees (but not THAT WAY, you filthy Wonkette readers):
I AM BEGGING FOR A SELF-AWARENESS MOMENT HERE: Ana Marie Cox has an article about Imus in TIME where she explains she won’t be going back on his show:
But do I really want to give my tacit approval to someone whose greatest gift to public discourse could be fairly described as allowing pundits to get potty-mouthed?
Heaven forbid that the woman who rose to prominence on the strength of her anal intercourse jokes would do that. I stand by this rant from Nov 2004 and this beatdown from the post-mortem of the Dan Rather debacle holds up well.
OK, so Al Sharpton and Ana Marie Cox have been heard from. Once Howard Stern announces he won’t be appearing on Imus, my day will be complete.
I swear to God, last night I was lying in bed, and I thought to myself- the only person who could make any sense of this whole damned charade is dead.
I miss Hunter S. Thompson.
At any rate, it will be amusing to check memeorandum and see which blogs link approvingly to this latest bit of Cox self-promotion.
*** Update ***
In a clear victory for civil rights, race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and western civilization, a shock jock has now been fired for using the phrase “nappy-headed ho’s.”
I am sure that now there will be peace on earth and good will towards men. And somewhere, Glenn Beck is laughing his ass off.
