Nobody will ever replace Imus. He was a law unto himself, and thats what made his show work. No one can duplicate it. It was a huge tactical error to fire him instead of censuring him. It's like getting rid of the cash cow because it gave too much milk.

There was a time when Don Imus WAS funny (the WNBC days, of the 70's and 80's), but Imus BECAME a cranky, old, tired-out, grumpy, frumpy, belligerent, nasty, obnoxious man, in his later years. There were times when it was embarrassing for me to watch him (yeah, I used to watch him) on the MSNBC simulcast.
Whenever the "I-Man" would put his foot in his mouth (the Rutgers Women's Basketball team WASN'T his first offense), I'd look at Charles McCord, and you could tell from his demeanor, and the expression on his face, that HE knew Don had gone a little too far, too. Don Imus BECAME a "walking, talking time-bomb." Believe me, NOBODY is irreplaceable; they'll find a suitable replacement for "I-Man," in time. In relatively short order, you'll be saying to yourself, "Don 'Who?'"

Petition: CBS Must Re-Hire General Batiste
http://tinyurl.com/2ekzrh

It took CBS two weeks to fire Don Imus for racist and misogynistic comments, but it only took them two days to fire respected General John Batiste for speaking out against the president on the war.
It's censorship, pure and simple. We're aiming to get over 100,000 messages demanding that CBS re-hire Major General Batiste by the end of the week. Can you help?
