ED ASSNER TO LARRY ELDER: "I'm Not Equipped"
Larry Elder Show | 9-30-02 | dfu

Posted on 09/30/2002 5:56:31 PM PDT by doug from upland

Larry Elder has the unpleasant misfortune to be seated next to Ed Assner (spelling mistake on purpose) at an event. He was discussing with Assner how he was wrong on Mumia and other issues and wanted Assner to come on his show to debate. Assner admitted that he was "Not equipped to go on the show and debate." How surprising is that. The left shoots off its mouth but is not prepared with facts to debate. Nitwits.

All the Left has to debate with is emotion.

You can tell their line of thinking by the shocked look on their faces, when someone disagrees with their views. They just know they are right about everything, and that anyone who disagrees is just extremist and ignorant.

Ed Chickensh!t: oh no, I can't risk getting punched. I'll sit over here on the sidelines under Mary Tyler Moore's skirts.

He pulled a Baldwin (stayed in the country after all).

I don't even think it means that. He doesn't mean that he doesn't have the facts. He means he hasn't memorized the Left's talking points on the subject. No brains needed. No facts needed. Just memorize the talking points and you're magically equipped.

No surprise. The leftist think with their hearts and not with their heads. For a lot of them, say Barbra Streisand, that is a good thing because the inside of their head is empty.

Ed Assner is one of my least favorite Hollywood idiots. His 'Sheeple for the American way' is misnamed because all it does is collect money to give to ultra-left causes and candidates.

Didn't this incident with Asner and Elder occur at least 1 year ago?

Assner could have called Babs Streisand, Alec Baldwin, or "Meathead" Reiner for advice on how to be a political advisor when you're a political infant.

O'Reilly was entirely too kissy-huggy with him the other evening....he didn't go for the kill when he could have; instead he gently let A-hole pimp some book or tv show or whatever it was he wanted to pimp.

"Not equipped to go on the show and debate."

Just as I thought: he has no balls! By his own words!

Reminds me of a time long ago at Harvard, where Streisand was on some anti-Republican rant, and, when asked questions from the audience, couldn't answer a single one, coherently at least. She would have been just as successful drooling on herself!

You have to remember that people like Assner are only good at reading what others write, and doing what others say. They are incapable of independent thought. At least Assner was smart enough to know that he would have been creamed by Elder! I am sure that talking with Elder for more than a minute convinced him of that! What a coward! Such deep convictions!! I think Lou Grant, not Ted Baxter, was the real idiot on the Mary Tyler Moore show!

That might have been the film clip I was thinking about when I posted about it yesterday, from the old Rush TV show. She read her speech, then she went into meltdown when a few reporters asked her legitimate questions. In other words, she knows how to read a rant, but when someone calls her number, she doesn't have a clue. Ain't that a big surprise? I wish I could find a source for that clip. Same as the one showing how fake BJ Clinton was at the Ron Brown funeral. Priceless.

Ed Asner didn't create PAW, that was Norman Lear, but the mistake is understandable. While Lear was organizing the domestic parlor pinks, Asner busied himself raising money for Central American communists during the Reagan era.
