Stacy McCain links a fascinating video of MSNBC Anchor Ed Schultz in his post on that latter’s suspension for calling a conservative commentator a “slut“. Tell me if something strikes you when you watch the video.
Yeah, I noticed it too. This guy contends conservatives are doing exactly what a good many liberals were doing for the better part of George W. Bush’s administration. Did Schultz ever take those liberals to task for criticizing the Commander-in-Chief in time of war? Did he wonder where their patriotism was?
And wasn’t it Mr. Schultz’s ideological allies back then who were faulting conservatives for allegedly raising those very questions about Mr. Bush’s critics?
(Yes, I too would like to see an unedited version of this, putting all his remarks in context.)
