Looks like the kids on the ranch get to pay the ultimate price. Revrund Al must be very proud of his selective outrage.

There goes his only chance of coming out fighting.

Next he needs to sue. If I was on the jury I would award him $$$$$.

If he wants to come back to radio, he could have a new syndicator in about five minutes.

Yep.

I guess they’ll pick up Sharpton’s show in its place.

He’ll land on Cable radio, I’m sure.

More Breaking News....

It was just announced that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have been replaced immediately by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

This was due the national disgrace of the NHH incident that occurred under 'their watch'.

Stay tuned for the time that the inauguration shown exclusively on BET.

In a way it is kind of poetic justice; the same Newsweek type liberals he has been pandering to on his show are the ones that got him fired.

Guys like Fineman, Alter, Craig Crawford etc. will have to find another sucker to let them blather away.

I couldn’t see any scenario where the Imus in the morning show could have survived in it’s present form.

I used to tune in for the media talking heads and pols. You could usually count on a headsup on the days talking points.

There is no way any of them would go on the show now that it is radioactive. Without the interviews you are left with a geriatric Howard Stern.

Imus is, was and always will be an idiot, but please... just stupidity.

He’ll wind up somewhere I’m sure.... maybe on satellite.

Q: So, why did the Miss Black USA Pageant only have 49 contestants?

A: Because no one wanted to wear the “I-DA-HO” sash......

(Does this mean I’m going to get fired now?)

WOW! Well, so much for my understanding how Sumner Redstone's mind works!

(The Wall Street Journal thought this was unlikely, also.)

If they’re cleaning the airwaves, let the vulgar songs go too. Double standard — o.k. for Blacks to use the words in songs, but a white person can’t say them.

Scarborough was right (for once) last night.

There are MILLIONS of Americans wondering what the heck was the big deal about two words (one of which is a valid description of hair - nappy).

I think Obama (who called for his firing also) just lost a lot of middle aged white folk votes.

Who should he sue? CBS? Seems to me he broadcasts there at their pleasure, although maybe he could name them in a suit. I just don’t know.

IF his pockets were deep enough to take something to the SCOTUS, maybe.

Saw this one coming. Imus never should’ve come out of the box groveling to Sharpton.

WFAN is toast.

“Mike and the Mad Dog” as their morning drive show?
