Rick Sanchez, Bigot Smasher!

Given his almost legendary history of saying dumb and firing-worthy things on air, would you believe this is what finally got Rick Sanchez fired from CNN?

Lord knows I've got my own issues with Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, but Stewart is hardly a "bigot." And for every segment where I think Stewart goes completely off the rails, there's also one where I think Stewart gets it absolutely right. Or at least, for every three or four segments where I think Stewart goes off the rails, there's one where I think he gets it absolutely right. I've never been able to say that about Rick Sanchez.

Buh-bye, Rick. I can only hope your replacement provides half as much blog fodder as you did...
