"MSNBC Has 'Indefinitely' Suspended Mark Halperin For His 'Dick' Remark About Obama"

I have to concur. He should be suspended for such until he apologises for his bad language and then recites and edited version of his comments.

Gutter type language shouldn't be used on TV.

Might I suggest he use either "penis" or "weiner" in place of the "gutter language" type word "dick"...

I rcognize Hillary! as Ahab, and Chelsea and the lecherous old man and Obama as the great (half) white whale; but who is playing the part of QueeQueg?

Mark Halperin: Are we on the seven second delay?

Mika Brzezinski: Lordy.

Halperin: I wanted to characterize how the president behaved.

Scarborough: We have it. We can use it. Go for it. Let’s see what happens.

Brzezinski: We’re behind you, you fall down and we catch you.

Halperin: I thought he was a dick yesterday.

Scarborough: Delay that. delay that. what are you doing? i can’t believe — Iwas joking. Don’t do that. Did we delay that?

Scarborough gave Halperin the green light. Suspend him!

Other terms would be more descriptive-even though the term used is applicable.

Any bets on how long Red Eye will play Halperin’s astute observation on a continuous loop tonight?

Nope! I don’t really see what agreeing with Halperin has to do with watching “PMSNBC, It’s not on my TV” but we do discuss Barry and his Destruction of America agenda quite a bit. We all believe that he qualifies as being a dick.

Nobody w/ a wit whit of intelligence can watch that "show"

whit

noun

a particle; bit; jot (used especially in negative phrases): not a whit better.

You can see Barry's whaleness in this childhood picture in which he sports a cranium like a Beluga whale (whale picture for comparison:

Just hours after the assembled “journalist community” was jumping all over Michele Bachmann about her gaffes.

Do we have an awesome God or what???

>>Dick?<<

My reaction also. Why would they suspend him for referring to the President as a private detective?

Halperin was obviously implying that the President’s intense investigation of the underlying problems created solely by his predecessor had at last yielded fruit and that he was about to unveil “the Answer” to all of our problems...

I won’t post a pic that would get me banned or at least a stern warning but the obama dildo with the name Head O State was marketed in 2008.

I see you too have noticed the Mussolini habit of presentation by Obama. Too bad that a generation or so separates the public from seeing the comparison.

Of course if the comment would have been about a conservative, the comment would have been “We apologize to anyone that might have been offended.”

You're got that right!!!! This wasn't an mealy mouthed ”non apology” apology reserved for offensive statements about conservatives

Actually, the way that they would have worded it would be classic Liberalturd Apologyspeak:

"We apologize that you felt offended."
