It grays out just slightly, but I can try dragging it anywhere on the desktop and it remains in the Menu Bar. It will drag even to the right side of the Notifications icon, but it stays there. I know it's supposed to just disappear in white cloud of smoke, like a dock icon, but it's not happening.

Then uncheck "Sync With Google"
if not so easy:
Command drag will work for System menu items to the right of the bar, not so much third party unfortunately.
I suspect at this point a corrupt plist ,try deleting com.apple.systemuiserver.plist
found here by using Finder>Go>Go to Folder (command shift G):
copy and paste:
delete this plist.
now open terminal (Applications/Utilities/terminal.app) and paste the command:
This command will kill the process and MacOS X will automatically rebuild the menu bar, clearing out old cache. Quit Terminal.MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), 2.4GHz IntelCorei5 320GB HD 8GB RAM

Didn't work for me. Pasted
and got a message that folder can't be found.
Where do I look. I really want to clean up my menu bar. Command and drag don't work.
Any ideas? I am using OS 10.8.5

Command and drag worked for me.
I tried the plist solution, above, but got an error message about permissions.
Could the variations in results be associated with different versions of the Mac OS? I am currently on Snow Leopard (10.6.8).
