imus-falafelman.jpg I know a lot of of C&L'ers have very mixed feeling about Imus, but I couldn't pass this one up. On Today's show, Imus railed on O'Reilly because the falafel man will send our troops a copy of his book if you buy one.

Imus: Here's what a disgrace O'Reilly is. Olbermann can't kill him enough. Here's what O'Reilly's doing. You are not going to believe this. This sonofabitch actually went on that falafel thing of his and he said-----if you'll buy a copy of his book---for every copy of his stupid book, he'll send a copy to a soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan. I mean I don't know where to start. That's his contribution to the men and women who are fighting and dying in this idiotic war for this country.

Limbaugh tried a similar trick of trying to make money off the troops with his "Adopt a soldier" scam.
