Barack Obama accuses Don Imus of verbal violence
That's one hilariously tin-eared response to a tragedy, lifted straight out of a Jesse Jackson stump speech from 1984. And comparing Virginia Tech to Don Imus is pure self parody.
Of course, if you are running for President, or if you are yapping on the radio for hundreds of hours per year, some of your improvisations are going to fall terribly flat. One could reasonably expect a little forgiveness following an apology, but that is exactly what Sen. Obama did not extend to Imus.
