I apologize in advance to the many who will disagree with me, but I think 
that Sharpton set up Imus today and then sucker punched him.

Imus did two hours on Sharpton's show, possibly with the understanding that 
Sharpton would help him get the matter dealt with so that people could move on. 
He got pounded by Sharpton and kept admitting that he was wrong.

After it was over, Sharpton held his own press conference and demanded that 
Imus be fired and said that nothing that Imus could have said on his 
(Sharpton's) show would have made any difference.

Ratings, baby . . . it's all about getting guests that get you the numbers .
