If there was ever a textbook example of kissing up to a host in a television interview, Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., gave a demonstration on MSNBC's "The Ed Show."
During the Dec. 28 broadcast, Moran, who represents a district that is just a stone's throw away from the U.S. Capitol, encouraged "The Ed Show" host Ed Schultz to keep pushing for the public option as part of health care reform, even though it is losing support as being essential in the U.S. House of Representatives.
"You've got to keep up the pressure, Ed," Moran said. "You know, they pay much more attention to what's said on MSNBC, particularly shows like yours than Fox or something like that. You know that."

I hope he was being sarcastic.

Yet they complain about Rush being a mouthpiece for the GOP. It’s OK for the Dems to use a TV talk show for their purposes though. If the double standards weren’t so infuriating you could almost laugh.

Well, there's a reason our nickname for him is Mor-on!

Al Franken AND Ed Schultz in the Senate?

I wouldn’t be a bit surprised. If she actually ran, can you just imagine how many in the MTV demographic would actually think it would be cute or funny to vote for her? Don’t think it couldn’t happen.

Moran has gone from being a crooked jerk, to being certifiable.

Moran is to be ignored. He’s brain-damaged.

(The arrogance of this Congress is staggering. November 2010 can't get here quickly enough.)
Ed Schultz .. the perfect book-end for Al Franken
