I remember watching this Thursday. What do you think?
David Shuster's comment was a bit more colorful than his usual dull presentations. If you watch cable news you know he's certainly not a professional blowhard like Lou Dobbs, Bill O'Reilly, Nancy Grace or Glenn Beck. He's a real journalist (i.e. he's a corporate blowhard than doesn't rock the boat).
I'll be honest, I saw no serious foul in his comment. Then again, I laughed at Imus' infamous nappy-headed ho comment. Maybe I'm an insensitive misogynist. Or maybe I can still laugh at stupid comments and still be a proud lefty.
I agree it was inappropriate but far below the usual cable noise. I'm sure Billary supporter, Ellen Malcolm -- president of EMILY's List and a top adviser to Sen. Clinton -- would disagree. She wrote a scathing letter to NBC Sr. VP Phil Griffin. And after Billary threatened to boycott future debate appearances on the network, Shuster 's was apologizing every 30 minutes.
The worst of the American left seems committed to editing the English language down to two simple words: be nice.
