Quote of the Day, Jr.


"Rain, thunderstorms, winds getting whipped into tornadoes of horrific proportions. Hot weather, all of this stuff. And what are the Republicans thinking about? They're not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They're just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Missouri, on Sunday. But you know what they're talking about? Like this right-wing slut, what's her name, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she's a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama's doing it, they're working him over."

-- Ed Schultz on Laura Ingraham

Let's see, is calling a woman a slut the same thing as calling Ed Schultz a fucking pinheaded boob who should've been bounced out of the MSNBC lineup about thirty seconds after he got there? No? Good. I didn't think so.

At least he didn't call her a bag of meat with lipstick.

Ed is a real classy fella. Didn't he used to use the same schtick but from the right? I could be wrong, but I seem to remember him being a target of the left wing press.

Obviously, he could have found a better way to get his point across other then calling someone a 'slut', but his point is valid. The Republicans have had this double-standard forever and they can never seen beyond their own party in terms of policies that are right and righteous. And while Democrats can be the same way; I can say, at least for myself, that I look at the big picture and try and take in all relevant arguments when making an informed decision. This is an attribute that is non-existent in most Republicans.

She's a hateful creature, but he's a bozo. Just goes to show their are some foulmouthed hyperbolic idiots on the left, too. Mike Malloy, anyone?

Ed Schultz is a whore. There, I said it.

And it wasn't possible to make that valid point without calling her a slut, Jubilant?

John Foley said...

I fucked up "their/there" which has rendered all my opinions worthless.

He could have called her politically promiscuous which would have not only been politer but also have gotten his point across.

As for me I praise both Obama and Reagan for drinking a beer, and while I'm at it way to go Mr. Clinton, everybody can use a rub n tug ever now and again.

Did I get off topic?

Besides, I am of the opinion that Republicans are a cum dumpster of bad ideas. But do I go around saying that? No, people might get angry at that.

This is going to turn into the South Park Cripple Fight episode isn't it?

I find it difficult to get worked up over anything unpleasant flowing in Laura Ingraham's direction. She's a contemptible partisan hack completely lacking in ethics, veracity, common decency or anything remotely resembling balance or a sense of fairness.
Of course, Schultz is an annoying doofus...and it's regrettable that the right is going to ceaselessly point to this idiot's brain fart and insist it's a perfect example of the sort of rhetoric Liberals employ every day.
But I can't fault him for being accurate.

Note her comment in response to being called a slut took the opportunity to plug her new audio book. Imagine having that voice in your ear buds for the length of an entire book. Who needs water boarding?

Laura Ingraham is a worthless, shameless dipshit and she deserves all the derision that can be heaped on her -- but saying something about her that has larger ramifications than simply commenting on what a fuckwit she personally is does more harm than good. Schultz should know better -- and this could very well cost him his show at MSNBC. Course that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world and mush-mouthed Cenk Uygur would then inherit the "top buffoon" mantle at MS. What is very much worth pointing out, however, is that, yes, if the roles were reversed and Ingraham were to have called Schultz something equally derogatory there would be no repercussions whatsoever -- it would be just another day at the office for Fox, right-wing talk radio, etc.

I hope it does cost him is show.... not because I'm fond of Laura Ingraham, but because I simply can't stand Ed. He's a complete simpleton.
