Schultz/MSNBC Launch 'Get Out The Vote' Effort Against Scott Walker
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/31/2012 5:35:21 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

[snip] If it's wrong for FNC to campaign against Obama, how about MSNBC launching a "Get Out The Vote" effort against Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall election? Have a look at the video clip here of an MSNBC "Lean Forward" promo for Ed Schultz's show. After Schultz declares that the Wisconsin recall hinges on "who gets their people out," the screen flashes "Get Out The Vote!" Schultz seeks to recruit his viewers in the effort, the graphic asking them to "share your photos" at Schultz's Facebook page. There's no doubt who Schultz is seeking to get out the vote for--and against. The same video is filled with images of people holding signs saying "Recall Walker" and "Walker: Your Pink Slip Is Showing."

View the video here.

Get Out The Vote** a.k.a. Register the Dead.

**Pet Peeve Warning - What form or version of English is this phrase? In my world, this phrase is nonsense. Did they mean, "Get out TO vote"? Every time I hear this phrase it makes me want to slap someone. I feel this way when I hear someone use "ax" in place of "ask", "skreet" in place of "street", as well.

Pet peeves here as well. Another bothersome pronunciation:

srimp instead of shrimp

The Special Ed Show with Special Ed Schultz will be broadcasting live from WI on Tues night. Watching Gov. Walker be reelected may send Ed over the mental edge and into permanent residence at the ‘special’ home.

MSNBC is no more than a Democratic Party propaganda network. They’re apparently happy with their small audience of left-wing cranks.

"What form or version of English is this phrase? "

I think it's an ebonic derivative of "Get out the Bushes."

How is this not a paid and accountable in-kind donation to the Democrats???!?

Vomit inducing.

Ann Coulter sounds a wake-up call to the GOP over this critical recall election and the power of public unions.

This might be effective if Special Ed actually had viewers. But, the few whackos who tune in to this bulbous bloviating blowhard are already anti-Walker, so whom does he think he’s actually reaching?

How many votes does Sgt. Schultz think he is going to get out? The six or seven people that watch his show? Pathetic liberal moron.

Birds of a feather and all. Ed and the WI unions are vile and despicable (everything they falsely accused the Tea Party of).

Yep. As a Southerner I felt like I was in a foreign country when I lived in Boston for a few years.

All I could say for the first few months was, “What?”. Course they couldn’t understand a word I said either ;D!

Hey,maybe you found it tough to find grits up here but what did you think of our clam chowder? Much better than that stuff you get in Manhattan,eh!

Oh gosh, the chowder, grinders, regular coffees and the pastries at “the market”, I gained 15 pounds easily! There was a little Italian vendor near my apartment. He was always giving me free food. Fantastic!

BTW, don’t knock the grits, but we do enjoy some of the best seafood and Southern cuisine in the world. Key lime pie? Fugetaboutit! I’m hungry...

Key Lime Pie's great but the first,and last,time I ever ate grits was at Ft Knox,KY when I was 19.My attitude toward grits is now basically the same as "Vinny's" (Joe Peschi).."well,I just never *saw* a grit before". ;-)

A call to action from someone who’s name, ED, suggests a limp prick.
