Ed Schulz can be an ass!

But will we have any Ed Schulz worshippers in here defending him? Probably not.

Could that possibly be the difference? No, it can't be.

Yup, he can be an ass. He speaks his mind and occasionally has to apologize for it.

I like Ed, and I listen to him on the radio now and then, but I don't watch his TV show. I think he hits a very important demographic for liberals: the working class/blue collar man.

He should know "slut" is a charged word for some people. He probably meant "whore" in the context of right-wing media whore, but he should apologize for it.

I'm not hung-up on words like some people, so I don't care that he said it. However, I don't want to see him bounced off the air either.


He did direct it at someone in the media and not a private person. So seriously, if that is your business, toughen up your skin a bit.

No, I would never call Rush Limbaugh a right-wing slut.

Slut is a completely unnecessary choice of words. What a jackass.

That said, I read Laura Ingraham's book and she is an absolutely vile person.

Vile is not much better and certainly not the word I'd use to describe someone I disagreed with politically.

She doesn't try and hide her beliefs, is never profane, and isn't out to harm anyone. How is she vile?

Because of how often she lies. It's got nothing to do with disagreeing politically; it has to do with trying to justify a viewpoint with erroneous information.

he's more of a Dominican Republic sex tourist slut, you're right.

i'm more referring to his mocking of the physically handicapped and racism.

She's out to harm quite a few... on a daily basis.

AND she does try and hide her lies, she just isn't that good at doing so.

I really don't like it when men can't disagree with women (or comment on any particular womens issue) without resorting to calling them sluts, whores, or worse-or attacking their weight or appearance. It's pathetic and an indication of intellectual laziness, very poor character, or worse. And it sure indicates that they must think they're incredibly hot

Ed Schultz has voluntarily suspended himself w/o pay.
The Ed Schultz Show : Ed Says Blog


It's the political media. If you are part of it, wear a helmet.
Ed Schultz is often referred to as "Special Ed" by right-wing media. So slut bad, but Down's Syndrome jokes are fine.

Whatever. It is what it is.

Both sides of the media act like children. Actually that's an insult to children, and/or being too kind to the media.

I just think they should try to raise the bar, raise the level.

i agree. this is what bothers me the most. i'm sure he has many reasons to think that Laura Ingraham is a vile person for a variety of reasons, mostly intellectual/political disagreements. but to slip into female slurs is all sorts of gross. haven't we moved beyond this? guess not ...

I don't think we'll ever move beyond it

What is the equivalent insult for a man?

I think pig is the closest, but that's not saying much since a number of guys wear it like a badge.

Whore is legit to use. Slut is not.
