Note to Ed Schultz: Polemics have their limits

Saw this reported on Reuters this evening:

Left-leaning Ed Schultz has been suspended from MSNBC for referring to fellow host Laura Ingraham as a “right-wing slut” and “talk slut” on his syndicated show Tuesday.

It goes to show that sexually degrading language from a position of male privilege can be problematic for either the Right or Left. Also, Ed sometimes just needs a copy editor…in his head.

Ed and Jiminy

Excellent! We're doing quite well! Just don't say sl--

Address the substance of her baseless and irrational arguments, Ed! Character assassination based on outdated notions of gender roles and sexuality is so not cool.

I’m glad he offered his suspension, and I’m optimistic his apology will be heartfelt. But he already broke Jiminy Cricket’s heart…for shame.
