Things Ed Schultz May Soon Regret Saying

“President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Missouri, on Sunday, but you know what they’re talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name? Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.” [TPM]


I hope he not only refuses to apologize, but doubles down.

Breaking: MSNBC suspended him for a week. Wusses.

Slut is a derogatory word? I thought all those boys were being complimentary…

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Werd. Slut is like High Gay. Like I tried to explain to Johnny Earle, boy slut motel wrestling in spandex is a spiritual experience leading to deeper, deeper, yeah daddy, understanding of manhood whereas…

Wait. What?

Oh right. Sluts. Like what, Peggy Noonan?

Wait. My ankle bracelet is doing the happy dance…

@Dodgerblue: It would have been more bitchin’ if Rachel had said it.

@Dodgerblue: The good news is that I don’t have to lurch to shut off the TV at 7 p.m. Ed’s more self-aggrandizing than Keef, but without the Blowhard Entertainment Factor.

He probably meant “nut,” but whatever.

BTW, Tony Kornheiser got two weeks for criticizing ESPN reporter Hannah Storm’s outfit when he said, if I recall correctly, “a woman of her age” (like about a stinquer) should not be wearing knee high boots and a snug mini dress.

/listens to way too much sports talk radio

@Dodgerblue: I can help him out, if he wants to explore the outer limits of rude.

@nojo: Is “industry stooge” sanctionable by the MSM? I once called an expert witness a “sock puppet for the plaintiffs” in front of a jury, including the hand movements. Could I say that on TV and not get fired?

@Dodgerblue: I think that depends upon how you describe the part where you insert your hand.

Ed’s on-air apology was so epic, you’d think he called Ingraham a cunt.

@nojo: I guess he could have said: “I regret using the word “slut.” What I meant to say is that she’s got her head so far up industry’s ass, she can see daylight out of their noses.”

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: I know he’ll call. He will call. I know that. He needs me. I’ll rub him down with BenGay and tuck him up tight. He’ll cry and I’ll hold him and keep that alien woman away. He needs a man’s touch. A healing touch.

@Dodgerblue: Did you do the hand-jerk move or the “blah-blah-blah” move? Was this in federal or state court?

Either way, that takes cojones, my dear. Most judges would get their briefs in a bunch over that.

@Dodgerblue: “I’m sorry if that fucking @#$%&*$# was offended.”

@SanFranLefty: “Counsel is testifying in closing!”

“Am not. It’s the puppet.”

@redmanlaw: Okay, now I’m going to have Mr. Hand’s voice haunting me the rest of the night. I simultaneously love and curse South Park and The Simpsons for giving me so many pop culture references and ruining so many other pop culture icons (I nearly drive off the road laughing when I hear “Cats in the Cradle,” or “Waiting is the Hardest Part” on the classic rock station because of the related episodes of Simpsons).

@SanFranLefty: …on the classic rock …

Sports talk radio is a good way to avoid any Jim Croce during drive time, imho.

@SanFranLefty: i had to get off the classic rock when styx and journey made the cut.

@jwmcsame: Styx was playing at a tribal casino just up the road from me last week or so, while my fave college band since 1981 U2 played to 80,000 + a night in Mexico, Denver and SLC over the past few weeks. I have always hated Styx with a passion (except for “Lady”) since they owned the airwaves in the 80s, so I felt a sense of revenge.

@flypaper: Streaming Jim Rome at my desk right now.

@redmanlaw: in the fall of 80 u2 opened for the j giles (sp?) alleged band here in rocky top believe it or not. we sat in this weird balcony off to the left of the stage and flipped beer bottle caps at the stage like fools in need of bouncing. i was young and dumb then and don’t do that kinda shit anymore.

remember jim rome calling jim everett chrisie everett over and over again until he got a table thrown at him?

as par for the course, the tennessee volunteers have fired another mens sports coach by axing baseball coach todd raleigh. the guy we want to hire for about half a mill per year is dave serrano at fullerton st, formerly of UC irvine. he was an assistant here when todd helton went babe ruth on the sec and started in front of peyton manning for half a season at qb no less. my question for you folks out west is this. serrano is obviously a top of the line coach at fullerton, a job few would leave. what is he making and why would he leave fullerton even for more cash? i have watched fullerton many times in the cws and they are the shit, year in and year out. do the vols have a chance of stealing serrano away? furthermore i am sure you guys would argue that west coast college baseball is at least the equal of the s.e.c. making me wonder why serrano would leave there. some one help me out here.

@jwmcsame: The University of Oregon recently added baseball, after a generation or two of it being gone. Given Eugene spring weather (hint: wet), I think it’s actually a wicked joke.

@jwmcsame: @redmanlaw: I have loathed Styx since the first time I heard them. Most of you are so much younger than I am that I have not always ever even heard the work of the musicians you discuss, but Styx I’ve heard all right (however, not probably even a grand total of five minutes worth, that’s how fast I flee the premises if I can’t turn them off).

Tonight’s the night we’ll make history
Honey, you and I
And I’ll take any risk
To tie back the hands of time
And stay with you here tonight…

Yup. From memory. Think I was 12, so cut me a break.
