Recently removed Ohio Rep. James Traficant ran afoul of standards and practices on the Imus show. During a telephone interview, Traficant expressed his dissatisfaction with the FBI and IRS.
“[they can] go [fuck] themselves.”
Imus, using his seven-second-delay radio-FU, blocked the explitive from his live show. MSNBC, inexplicably, could not do the same.
The seasoned broadcaster admonished Traficant and then asked:
“They are going to sentence you tomorrow. How much do you think you’ll get?”
The bemused Traficant then hung up.
Is it just me, or does Traficant sound like a rerun of Bloom County’s Senator Bedfellow?
