Goodby Donnie, you racist homophobe

Media Matters is reporting that MSNBC has just dropped Imus. Now it's up to CBS, where Imus' show originates, to decide what to do with every major advertiser now fleeing the show. I don't see how he survives that.

What I don't understand about this is the focus on him, and I realize it is, after all, his show. He has said some awful things for sure, but those side kicks of his: McGuirk and McCord. The things those mouth breathers spew out on his show make Archie Bunker look like a Renaissance man.

And for those that still want to defend him, here is a sample of his remarks of the past :

On the New York Knicks: "chest-bumping pimps the New York Crips."
On superstar Gloria Estefan: "this little Chihuahua-looking 'ho."
On serial gay-killer Andrew Cunannan: "Why are they bothering to catch this guy? He's just whacking off freaks!"
On Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a Native American: "The guy from F Troop."
On CNN's female anchors: "dyke-ie broads."

Media Mattes has a breakdown of Imus and sidekick asides that will curl your hair. (i.e.: On Imus, McGuirk said that "bitch" Clinton will "have cornrows and gold teeth" )

Good riddance.
