Tell Carol Bartz to Can It

|Includes: Altaba, Inc. (AABA)

Amidst the public gnashing of teeth about the firing of Yahoo! CEO Carol Bartz -- over her cell phone, the horror! -- some common sense is needed. Bartz made some $60 million in 2009 and 2010, and is receiving another $10 million for getting canned.

For $70 million, the board of Yahoo! could have hired a plane with a banner that read "You're fired, b----!" and flown it over her daughter's wedding, and I wouldn't care. She can give as many profanity-laced interviews to Fortune as she likes. She didn't get the job done. 

I'd ask Bartz: how many of the Yahoo! employees that you laid off got offered to chance to "resign" so they could "spend more time with their family"? You fired people, now you got fired. Life's tough. Meanwhile, if Bartz truly thinks she earned $70 million, she's crazy. Though, to her credit, she has proven that even 70 million dollars can't buy an ounce of class.
