Newman: There are people that you look upon as moral leaders in the development of this country. Let's start with George Washington. He was a ho. Thomas Jefferson was a ho.
Imus: We know that, yeah.
Newman: Doris Kearns Goodwin will tell you Abraham Lincoln was a ho-mo (laughter). Franklin Roosevelt was a ho. J. Edgar Hoover was a drag queen ho (laughter). Brian Gumbel was a [unintelligible] bro ho (laughter). Bill Clinton will take any ho who walked through the do' (laughter). Don Imus was a ho-mo who claims he's a ho no mo' (laughter).
Voiceover: If your radio sounds funny in the morning. It's "Imus in the Morning."
Newman: What does Don Imus have in common with these following black men -- Nat Turner, Malcolm X, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Latrell Sprewell from the New York Knicks and Al Sharpton? What does Imus have in common with them?
Imus: We all have twelve-inch penises.
