You can’t keep a loudmouthed schmuck down

seal_yellOh goody – Don Imus is on his way back.

Because what we all need is an ill-informed, loudmouthed, racist, sexist jerk to host Joe Lieberman on a regular basis:

Don Imus has reached a settlement with CBS over his multimillion-dollar contract and is negotiating with WABC radio to resume his broadcasting career there, according to CBS and a person familiar with the negotiations.

Imus and CBS Radio reached a settlement that would pre-empt the dismissed radio personality’s threatened $120 million breach-of-contract lawsuit, CBS spokesman Dana McClintock said today.

No terms of the settlement were disclosed.

The person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press that Imus is taking steps to make a comeback with WABC-AM….

The settlement and possible comeback come more than four months after Imus created an uproar over his racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.

WABC is the New York home of such leading intellectual lights as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, so at least we know they’re not lowering their standards to bring Imus on.

Seriously – do any broadcast executives ever think about maybe trying something new, and letting the fossilized remnants of mumbling shock jocks remain in their undisturbed irrelevance?
