So, MSNBC has suspended its senior political analyst Mark Halperin for using a derogatory synonym for wiener to describe the president. Calling “Halperin’s crack . . . crude and dumb,” Greg Sargent says, “it doesn’t deserve indefinite suspension.”
Two years ago, over on CBS, David Letterman said that then-governor of Alaska had the style of a “slutty flight attendant” and joked about a baseball player having sex with hee teenage daughter. The former funnyman was not suspended and still appears on the air.
Guess MSNBC must just have stricter standards for political discourse than CBS.
