Gieco Lizard Fired - It's that easy.

As reported in the Huffington Post today Lance Baxter, the voice of the Gieco Lizard was fired for calling Tea Baggers mentally retarded. I'm going to talk more about this in my podcast, but my initial reaction was - Doesn't everyone know that most of the Tea Party are mentally retarded. As I suspected most of the Tea Party organizations are full of sissies and cowards. They start crying, "Oh the Gieco Lizard called us retarded - I think I just soiled myself"

Look I understand that it's in bad taste to call a group of retarded people, retarded and it is appropriate for Baxter to apologize for his rude and inappropriate remarks, but to fire him is just wrong and an extreme overreaction by Gieco.

Does Gieco understand that most of its customers are in their 20's and 30's? And that target market ain't in the Tea Party. Furthermore, the Liberal blogs are chalked full of comments saying they're either dumping Gieco or never purchasing Gieco. How many customers does Gieco think they're going to get from the old, grumpy, white Tea Baggers?

Is Gieco going to do the commercials with a replacement VO? That will just be sad and awkward.
