This isn’t the self-imposed idiocy commonly exhibited by liberals, but a rarefied strain found in left-wing radio and MSNBC. Ed Schultz, standing astride both, embodies it.
Bad enough that Schultz insisted on his radio show Friday that heck no, gosh darn it, Bill Clinton was absotively, posalutely never tried in the Senate after he was impeached during the Lewinsky scandal. This from a man whose radio program begins with the lead-in, “where truth and common sense rule.”
On that same radio broadcast, Schultz dug deep to reveal he’s not equipped to render a valid opinion about, well, just about anything. Take it away, Big Eddie (h/t, audio, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org) —
The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There’s two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it’s not even close. New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I’m not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don’t even exist in Chicago, you’ve got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.
I know, hard to believe isn’t it? This from a man paid to bloviate. Correction — this from a man paid by liberals to bloviate. Accuracy not required.
