The only thing I plan to write on Imus

He's looking like toast now he's losing advertisers. He might not come back after those 2 weeks, at least not on tv.

But here's my question. Imus deserves the nut-kicking he's currently getting, no doubt, but why hasn't the employment of Mr. McGuirk, Imus's producer and the one who instigated the entire conversation and said the most outrageous things in the exchange been questioned? I haven't heard anyone call for his firing, at least not in anywhere the same volume as Imus's firing has been called for. Look at the exchange:

IMUS: So, I watched the basketball game last night between -- a little bit of Rutgers and Tennessee, the women's final.

ROSENBERG: Yeah, Tennessee won last night -- seventh championship for [Tennessee coach] Pat Summitt, I-Man. They beat Rutgers by 13 points.

IMUS: That's some rough girls from Rutgers. Man, they got tattoos and --

McGUIRK: Some hard-core hos.

IMUS: That's some nappy-headed hos there. I'm gonna tell you that now, man, that's some -- woo. And the girls from Tennessee, they all look cute, you know, so, like -- kinda like -- I don't know.

McGUIRK: A Spike Lee thing.

IMUS: Yeah.

McGUIRK: The Jigaboos vs. the Wannabes -- that movie that he had.

IMUS: Yeah, it was a tough --

McCORD: Do The Right Thing.

McGUIRK: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

IMUS: I don't know if I'd have wanted to beat Rutgers or not, but they did, right?

ROSENBERG: It was a tough watch. The more I look at Rutgers, they look exactly like the Toronto Raptors.

IMUS: Well, I guess, yeah.

RUFFINO: Only tougher.

McGUIRK: The [Memphis] Grizzlies would be more appropriate.
McGuirk is the first to call them ho's and then follows up with the "jigaboos vs. the wannabes" crack. And he's not on the chopping block? What's wrong with this picture?
