Good riddance, Imus

I am happy to see you go, I-man. I have always found you annoying, stupid, spiteful, and not funny. Free speech is fine and well. Free speech makes it OK for me to say that in my opinion, you are an asshole. It’s also true that money talks and shit walks. Hence your departure.
See, there’s another mini-scandal here that few will probably remark on in the mainstream media. CBS only saw fit to fire you after it became apparent that it was detrimental to its business interests to do otherwise. First they were like, oh! That racist sexist talk is unconscionable! Two week suspension! They didn’t show you the door until the advertisers started pulling their ads.
While I’m at it, I am tempted to blame you for Corzine’s having gotten so banged up in that auto accident. If he hadn’t been on his way to a meeting about this Imus affair, he would not have been at that location on the Garden State at that precise time and…. nah, that’s bullshit. But it’s tempting.
