My wife says I have a bad habit of arguing simply for the sake of arguing.
This may be true, but it doesn't change the fact that the big stink currently being made over an ill-advised comment by MSNBC's David Shuster is a little too much ado about relatively nothing. For those who haven't been paying attention, late last week, Shuster suggested that the Clinton campaign's willingness to use Chelsea Clinton to push her mother's agenda -- while maintaining that she's officially off-limits to the press -- amounted to pimping her out.
Shuster's been suspended, everybody and their mother is piling-on and feigning the usual level of bullshit outrage, and of course, the Clinton camp is using the whole miasma to its advantage.
Which is kind of what Shuster was suggesting in the first place.
My latest column for the Huffington Post is guaranteed to draw a lot of fire in my direction.
Don't believe me?
Read it, then go to the HuffPost's media page and see what everyone else's opinion is.
