MSNBC personality and radio talk-show host Ed Schultz had some choice words aout former Vice President Dick Cheney's recent heart problems:
You're damn right, Dick Cheney's heart's a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. I'm glad he didn't tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.
... And we want Shooter to make it. Hell, we hope he goes and shoots somebody else in the face. That was a helluva story way back when.
... How come Dick Cheney's health care isn't being dropped? Do you realize that if you had five heart attacks, hell, you wouldn't get past two heart attacks and they'd dump you.
But because you're a war criminal and because you are on the take from Haliburton and you had these executive meetings in 2001 back in the, you know, the days of the rolling blackouts and executive privilege on how we're going to develop energy policy in this country, you do stuff like that, hell, you can get the best health care on the face of the earth.
Nice, very classy. Tony Kornheiser got suspended from ESPN for remarks that were no where near as offensive. I'm sure MSNBC (which by the way, stands for "Must See Nothing But Curling," according to Chuck Todd) will let it go.
