After several attempts at pulling the SD card out with a tweezers, i tried inserting a CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, in hopes that it would somehow "push or pull" the SD card out.  It took several attempts to eject the CD-ROM, but it finally came out. Good for the CD-ROM, bad for the SD card.

I fished around in the CD-ROM drive a little more, but to no avail.  Plus I was afraid of further damaging the drive.

Please help!  I don't want to cart my 27" iMac to the Apple store. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Late 2010 27" iMac
