Ed Schultz 'Apology' Translation
Washington Examiner ^ | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 05/27/2011 4:14:14 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Ed Schultz “apologized” on MSNBC for calling radio host Laura Ingraham (who in contrast to Big Ed actually has listeners) a slut on his radio show. I put “apologized” in quotes because what Schultz was really apologizing for was putting his bottom rated MSNBC gig in jeopardy. Therefore, allow me to put Schultz’s “apology” in italics followed by a translation of what he really meant in the brackets:

On my radio show yesterday, I used vile and inappropriate language when talking about talk show host Laura Ingraham. I am deeply sorry, and I apologize.

[You bet I’m deeply sorry. I’m deeply sorry that I put my big paycheck low rated MSNBC show at risk of being cancelled.]

It was wrong, uncalled for and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura and ask for your forgiveness.

[But mostly I am asking my new Comcast overlords to overlook Big Ed engaging in yet more Psycho Talk.]

Ed Schultz's "apology" is inadvertently transparent.

I heard the “apology” on the Wilkow Majority show yesterday. It was actually a well-done apology, none of the weaselly “if anyone was offended ...” garbage that implies, “Nothing wrong with me, it’s your fault for caring.”

Whether it’s sincere is a totally different issue, of course. I doubt it - that’s just the way leftists talk about women who aren’t fellow leftists.

In his apology he never said his accusation was incorrect. He never said “Laura, I know you’re not a slut. I know you to be a decent woman”.

All the more reason not to watch MSNBC. They fired Don Imus for a joke gone bad. They only suspend Sgt. Schultz for week after his intentional attack that included a vile reference to females.

It's a free country but if MSNBC had any sense of justice they would fire Ed Schultz. An apology should not suffice. It didn't for Imus.

Good observation. Laura could take this fat ass stooge out with one good smack. He is simply insane with hatred. What has Laura said about all of this? I haven’t been able to listen to her lately.

Laura played it down on O’Reilly last night. She said she accepted the apology and that she does not like to play the victim. Apart from that I think she does not want to give Schultz more attention.

Schultz has been trying to goad conservative commentators with big audiences into a fight. All to elevate his insignificant self. She isn’t taking the bait.

IMO, Don Imus acquiesced in his own firing. He apologized when he should have stood up, called Al Sharpton a gutterhugging race pimp and dared Sharpton to do something about it, told the rest of the race hustlers to go bleep themselves, then said to the network, “Go ahead, you b@stards, fire me for being politically incorrect!”

The outcome might have been the same, but there would have been no groveling.

Fat Ed got nothing but the merest slap on the wrist. After all, his target was only an evil conservative woman.

Drunk Ed has a web site, drop him a line. Ask Him about shooting His dog, or getting sh!t faced, or about Maureen Zimmerman, first wife, who was abused, knocked around.
Google ed schultz wife beating, dog shooting, its all there.

and this clown would beat Laura to a pulp if He could get away with it.
He is only sorry his mouth got ahead of him.

It is incredible that anyone would ever think Ed deserved a show of any kind but even such clowns as he can serve a useful purpose. Ed would make a wonderful training dummy to use at an army boot camp. The new recruits could punch, kick and otherwise throw him around for however long he lasted.

Comcast should dump this fat disgusting mental case asap. And, right behind him, dump Maddow and O’Donnell. He is a complete unhinged and bad-tempered nut.
Comcast has to be wondering just what the hell they bought from G.E., other than a collection of middle-aged deranged on-air people that lack emotional maturity.

I think it’s part of the Union language, being grossly rude, racist, mysoginist and homosexual/perverted at that. Schulz and the like of John Steward are this maggot trash rolling dog types.

Also they want to introduce the term and own it, and thus own people. I have a black niece and I cannot stand when black people seem to think they can use the N word, thus eventualy “pimp” righting themselves in owning her. They all are incontinent.

Ed forgot to say he took himself out of context.

Excellent observations. I hadn't thought about it quite that way, but I think you are right.

Indeed.

The accurate, but politically incorrect, observation about Black quarterbacks by Rush during his short-lived ESPN venture was nothing compared to this.

It doesn't matter what the circumstances were. It doesn't matter that it was on radio and I was ad libbing. none of that matters. none of that matters.

If "none of that matters," Ed, then why do you mention it--other than to work your lame excuses into your required "apology"?

Can someone explain to me how Imus gets fired for, “nappy headed ho’s” and Schultz gets a week suspension for “right-wing slut”?

Did he say it in the same way the PeeWee apologized to Francis?
Did Shultzy say it in a PeeWee voice?
Will James Brolin play Shultz in the movie about his life?

Shultz “Knows Noth-ing!”

“Can someone explain to me how Imus gets fired for, “nappy headed ho’s” and Schultz gets a week suspension for “right-wing slut”?”

I realize the question is rhetorical, but it’s obvious that nappy-headed ho’s are black whereas right-wing sluts are white—not that this POSSIBLY could have any bearing on how these respective cases were handled...

Yes, I thought his apology was okay. I heard Laura accepted it. Time to move on. It's the Left that get their widdle feelings all in an uproar about “vitriol”. Laura is a class act...she probably will not milk it.

Ed is pathetic. He's not very bright, screams at guests he has invited to his show when they disagree, probably a fraud (from conservative to lib, just happens to work with a radio spot, yeah right), unattractive, angry, stole Rush's shtick from him...etc. My fav story is when he challenged Dennis Prager to a debate. DENNIS PRAGER! When I heard him say this (I listened to Air America for entertainment value) I literally dropped my fork. The dumbest guy on radio calling Dennis P. out to a debate! Well, he soon discovered who Dennis was and ran like a little girl. Dennis ran after him for weeks to do it...talked about it a lot, said he would pay his own way to Fargo! Oh, how I loved that.

The guy is a fool. I don't want him fired...I want him on as much as possible so people get an earful of what the Left is all about.

Good for her. And you have good insight on Ed trying to goad popular hosts. Thanks.

Bully satan like worship, is what it is. or lies about being offended. The idiot finds a false strength in stupidity, which is stubborness. We cannot change the hardened hearts but they can change us, they think, in their stubborn depressed suicide in lieu of chivalry, because it is in fact an impotency in life to want to “feel” death and not burgeoning life inside.
