MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Off Air Indefinitely After Calling Radio Host Laura Ingraham a ‘Slut’

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Off Air Indefinitely After Calling Radio Host Laura Ingraham a ‘Slut’ – FoxNews.com.

I have never been a fan of Ed Schultz who, arguably, is the loudest of the Loud Left. From my perspective, his comments and delivery are out of control, which is what led him to this huge and embarrassing gaff Tuesday night. Because of this incident, Schultz will follow a long line of out-of-line media celebrities who will shrink off into obscurity. Good riddance!

I believe this is the problem that keeps America from the debates that are needed to keep us on the straight and narrow. Civility is sorely lacking with those whose opportunities to be heard are most plentiful. And, it’s not restricted to one side of the aisle or another. Personal attacks accomplish nothing. And rather than engaging in tit-for-tat, how refreshing it would be to see both sides lay down the scalding microphones and politely and intelligently discuss the matters that are important to Americans.

Do I see that on the horizon? Unfortunately, no. An incident like this one with Ed Schultz will only fuel more vindictive rhetoric. The Founders would be ashamed to see what we’ve become in the arena of political discussion.
