Quote of the Day
"Now, and I know that Anderson Cooper floats around in that GQ crowd. I don't know if he's behind it or whether their publicist at CNN, but let me just say, I'm kicking his ass, OK? (GQ can) kiss my ass.
-- MSNBC's resident "angry neighbor" Ed Schultz, after being chosen by GQ magazine as one of the "25 Least Influential People Alive"
Here's the actual quote from the GQ segment, and it's a thing of beauty:
"There are so many repugnant political pundits on TV now, we tend to forget that the likes of Sean Hannity actually represent the best of the lot. Hannity is a piece of shit, but at least he can get your average 85-year-old, gay-hating, gold-hoarding grandma to tune in. Then there are pundits like Schultz. Do you watch The Ed Show on MSNBC? Of course you don't. No one does. The only reason people watch The Ed Show is they're working out in a hotel gym and they can't find a staff member to change the channel to ESPN. Did you know MSNBC suspended Schultz this year? It did! He called Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut," and he still couldn't get noticed."
The whole list is damn entertaining and knowing that Schultz is basically going on a tear against Anderson Cooper just because Coop happens to be infinitely easier on the ears and eyes as a TV personality -- and a journalist for that matter -- is pure gold.
