    Ed Schultz would like to be more civil. Really, he would. It's just that those reprehensible Republicans, by failing to agree with him, force poor Ed to advocate things like ripping out Dick Cheney's heart. That was the Schultz's oft-repeated theme on his MSNBC show this evening. View video here.
  • Ed Schultz Mocks Conservative Lawyer Mark Levin Over Lawsuit Threat

    01/17/2011 3:36:48 PM PST · by Hotlanta Mike · 52 replies ^ | January 17, 2011 | Jonathon M. Seidl
    Last week, conservative lawyer and media personality Mark Levin threatened to sue (for defamation) anyone — especially MSNBC personalities — who might try to tie him to the Tucson shootings. He also issued a challenge to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: If Matthews could “find any example where Sarah Palin has promoted the murder of anybody,” he would pay up to the tune of $100,000. Those statements caused Ed Schultz to double over laughing today on his radio show. According to Schultz, Levin “couldn‘t carry Chris Matthews’ briefcase”:

    Call it a libel squared . . . Ed Schultz has suggested that Sarah Palin employed the term "blood libel" to describe the way her critics have tried to hold her responible for the Arizona shootings "as an appeal to an extreme Christian conservative base for 2012." Citing no evidence for his grotesque allegation, Schultz first floated it during his opening monologue. He raised it again with his first guest, Dem congressman Jan Schakowsky, and took things a despicable step further. Schultz suggested that Palin "got help from the speech from somebody who knows exactly what 'blood libel' means." Put...

    Joe Zamudio, one of the heroes during the Tucson shooting tragedy, appeared on Ed Schultz to talk of how he had a gun strapped to him, ran out of Walgreens when he heard the shots fired, and almost used his weapon but instead put it away and contained him with his body. Ed asked if he had to, would he have used his gun. Zamudio answered “you’re damn right.”

    Is Ed Schultz really this dumb or simply incapable of honesty? Within the first 10 minutes of his radio show yesterday, Schultz was bellowing about an alleged connection between the massacre in Tucson and remarks by Rep. Michele Bachman, House candidate Jesse Kelly and other Republicans (audio) -- SCHULTZ (initially referring to Congresswoman Giffords' medical condition): The latest medical update is she is responding, it's been consistent since they started to try to get responses out of her, which is very positive.

Or as Ed said, in his inimitably muddled manner,: "unions contribute 1/10th of 1% of their money that corporations put into campaigns. Now think about that: 1/10th of 1%. You got the corporate money over here you've got the organized labor money over here." How off is Ed? The National Review's Rich Lowry has documented that in the last election cycle, three unions alone kicked in $170 million to Dem coffers. So corporations would have had to...

    Welcome to Al Sharpton's Brave New Radio World. A world in which the FCC would take a hard look at the licenses of stations that carry Rush Limbaugh. Al is outraged at the prospect that the FCC would "allow people to say what they want." Ed Schultz has, as I've noted, been offering Sharpton a serial stage to trumpet his censoring threats, and there was Al at it again tonight. According to the Reverend, the FCC should clamp down not merely on "explicit" racism, sexism or homophobia, but also on any of those isms or phobias in their "implicit" forms....

Schultz declared: SCHULTZ: They've [Republicans] been on an economic jihad... And he didn't say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that." Isn't this the network that created the "Islamophobia" logo? Or was Schultz being complimentary? Maybe he really meant to say: "The Republicans are on a journey to make the world better, a struggle for a noble cause to promote peace harmony and justice."

But between his appearance on Schultz's radio show Nov. 22 and Schultz's MSNBC program several hours later, the caffeine apparently wore off for Mike Papantonio, a lawyer and co-host of the radio show "Ring of Fire," seeing how Papantonio dialed down his remarks from what he initially told Schultz.

Schultz was incensed that West had observed that Washington, DC--home of big government--was relatively immune to the economic woes that have befallen the rest of the country. By interesting coincidence, I had occasion to overfly Leesburg, VA in the DC suburbs this past weekend, and for the first time saw what McMansions look like [see photo I snapped after break].

    If the left can't get Rush by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, maybe the race card will work . . . Al Sharpton has called for the FCC to go after the stations that carry Rush Limbaugh, unsubtly implying that their licenses should be in jeopardy.

The background is the back-and-forth betweeen Schultz and Rush regarding Limbaugh's comments on Jim Clyburn, Pres. Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee. But the bottom line is that the left wants to find an excuse, any excuse, to grab the mike...

    Is Chris Matthews taking lessons from Ed Schultz on keeping it classy? In August and September, Schultz got off a series of fat jokes aimed at NJ Gov. Chris Christie. After Schultz eventually stooped to calling Christie a "fat slob," he was reportedly reprimanded by MSNBC president Phil Griffin. On this evening's Hardball, Matthews got off a fat joke of his own at Christie's expense. Matthews suggested that someone inform Christie that the tunnel he vetoed is going to be "a wide tunnel; it'll be very useful to certain people." The irony?

    The hope of the organizers of Saturday's "One America" rally in Washington was that a big turnout -- something on par with the crowd Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin attracted at the end of August -- would alter the media's midterm campaign narrative, which to date has emphasized the energy of the Republican base and the likelihood of sizable GOP gains in November. And, to the organizers' credit, the turnout, to the extent it could really be measured, seemed impressive enough. But while we might want to take this as proof that the "enthusiasm gap" is vanishing and that the...

    At certain schools across the country, parents possessed the authority to pull their children from class Tuesday so as not to witness President Obama's address to students nationwide – and Ed Schultz believes that constitutes an "opt-out for Right-wing whackos." Schultz seemed to be not in favor of academic freedom – in this case. Decrying opposition to the speech as "perverse conservative hatred" for Obama and "motivated by race," Schultz was apparently doubly-mad about this, as he hit the issue hard for two nights in a row on his MSNBC show.
