Ed Schultz bags out on one of his radio shows:
Its been an interesting couple of months in Ednews, which is never usually an interesting news category unless you find men who consider shouting insults to be keen political analysis to be interesting
I don’t, as a rule - but when Schultz is involved, you have to handicap a bit.
First Schultz and his rival Scott Hennen (full disclosure: I guest host for Hennen and have my own show on his station) announced a partnership whereby Schultz would host a morning show on Hennen’s recently-acquired AM station in southeast North Dakota and debate with Hennen himself once a week on Hennen’s morning show.
This sparked a great deal of criticism of Hennen which I never quite understood. I understand that a lot of people don’t like Schultz (including many on his own side of the political divide), but as far as Hennen goes what’s wrong with debating with the other side?
The whole ”if you talk with the “enemy” some of it rubs off on you” school of thought is something that irritates the piss out of me when it’s liberals doing the whinging. It doesn’t bother me any less among conservatives.
Anyway, last week during the Hennen vs. Schultz debate Schultz got so angry he hung up during the program.
If it was anything like last year’s “debates” between Schultz and Michael Medved, I’ll bet it didn’t take long. Schultz wasn’t Medved’s intellectual peer. He isn’t Hennen’s equal. For that matter, Tonya Harding outmatches the guy.
Then Schultz pulls the plug on his show on Hennen’s station. We can at least be glad that Schultz didn’t get so angry that he got drunk and punched a girl (as he’s been known to do) but even so that seems like a sissy move.
“The move of a guy who is trying to fight way above his intellectual weight class”? Definitely.
