MSNBC political analyst suspended for calling Obama “a dick” on the air

by editor on June 30, 2011

This is just too damn funny. Political analyst Mark Halperin – normally a good liberal – just got suspended by MSNBC for calling President Obama “a dick” on today’s Morning Joe show.

“I thought he was a dick yesterday,” Halperin said in reference to the President’s conduct during his press conference.

One might say that Halperin was suspended for telling the truth, a commodity in very short supply at MSNBC.

Of course, Halperin later fell on his sword after he was suspended and issued a statement saying, “I completely agree with everything in MSNBC’s statement about my remark. I believe that the step they are taking in response is totally appropriate. Again, I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the President, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it.”

So the way we now understand liberal philosophy, you can serve in the United States House of Representatives if you send a photo of your dick to a young woman, but you can’t call someone a dick.

I think that photo was doctored a bit. Obama’s ears are really much larger than that.

Here you go, Will. http://www.mrctv.org/video/41099. Slip this to Oblovia.

Give here this while your at it: “If you believe in the seamless mutuality of government and big business, come out and say it! There is a dictionary definition, one word that describes that toxic blend. You’re a fascist! Get them to print you a T-shirt with fascist on it!…You, sir, have no place in a government of the people, by the people, for the people. The lot of you are the symbolic descendants of the despotic middle managers of some banana republic to whom ‘freedom’ is an ironic brand name, a word you reach for when you want to get away with its opposite.”

Just try it on Fox with a Republican president and see what happens. It must be understood that the owners of NBC and its affiliates are still conservative corporate types who for now see money in it. Which is why Cenk Ugur left. They didn’t like his hard hitting interviews with Republicans and Democrats. That’s not the American Corporate way these days.
