Ed Schultz guest demonstrates why Air America went belly up

by editor on December 6, 2010

We’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to Randi Rhodes. We’ve always said she was the rudest, craziest denizen of Air America, but now it turns out she wasn’t. That honor belongs to Lionel. (Yes, just one name. Kind of like Cher, only less masculine.)

In case you thought there was nowhere to go but up after Air America, Ed Schultz points out that Lionel is of Lionel Media, a vast media conglomerate that, we assume, consists of Lionel and exists only in the mind of Lionel.

Anyway, he appeared on Schultz’ show with Republican consultant Ron Christie, an attorney and special former assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney and made both Christie and Schultz look like intellectual giants.

Christie, who remained calm and respecful throughout, finally got so annoyed with Lionel’s constant interruptions, histrionics and lunacy that he ends the interview with the words, “What a joke. I hope we never see you again.”

Schultz responds with, “Gentlemen, good to have you with us tonight. I thought it was great.”

Luckily, for the first time since the interview began, Lionel had nothing to say.

There’s a cartoon character that this Lionel sounds like, but I can’t place it. Anyone have any ideas?

Yeah, I can’t place it either, but I think it’s a Mel Blanc character, so that narrows it down to 1,000 possibilities!

I know what you mean. When I heard and saw him I thought he was cartoonish. His voice is too high for Bugs Bunny and too low (amazingly) for Mickey Mouse. If he had a girlier higher voice I would say Minnie Mouse.

As DJ mentioned it has a lot of Mel Blanc, but nothing definitive so you are probably hearing a hybrid of different characters in one, but I definetly hear a higher Bugs Bunny with a Daffy Duck tone there..

Christie is a male version of me! I would totally do the same thing.

However why does he bother himself going to that show?

Ed was just loving it.

Lionel looks like the geek everyone avoided in high school because they were afraid he was contagious. President of the AV club (although our AV guys were a sight better than this littel twerp.) I bet he buiilt his own broadcast studio in his basement. Poor Ron. Trying to be business like, professional and socially appropriate against this loud mouth little weasel. I give him props for not punching the guy’s lights out and walking off the segment.

He kind of did make Special Ed look smart. By not allowing Ed to speak, Ed looked smarter then he really is.

Maybe Halibueton sent the nigerian government their own 419 scam, they fell for it and thats why the country is a broke POS.

Why should I punish myself watching Ed Schultz’s demented rantings? I won’t watch “Lionel” either, he’s just another escapee from Air America, that bankrupt cesspit of bad ideas.

What bothers me is that Ron Christie would appear on the air with two braying jackasses, the epitome of liberal rudeness, stupidity and incoherence. I assume Ron got paid to do it, he should have pulled out a tazer and zapped both of them. I would watch that—a number of times.

That lionel assbanger looked like schultz does when he gets right to that 200/190 BP-you are just waiting for the blood to flow from his nose as he blows a major artery and expires right there on the television…..
Needless to say, I was riveted, right up until both those peanutbutter pushing dipshits were still breathing at the end.

Lionel is Michael Willaim Lebron, who is a lawyer, & was a chronic caller to talk radio. He used to be on AirAmerica, & he sucks. Just remember this, Lionel is smarter then you. You don’t need much exposure to him to get that, & the way he carries himself is why his media career is limited. I could see him getting a show on MSNBC at somepoint in the future though. They just keep bringing in 1 idiot after another, Lionel would fit in well at that ratings craphole.

So what does a Nigerian bribery scandal look like. Is that anything like governments using tax payer funds to buy news agencies (through their parent companies) and then controlling the flow of information?

That’s the Kenyan variation.

Nope, can’t do it. I just can’t watch Ed Schultz anymore. Read a transcript of that dumb ass, maybe. But watch? Never again. My brain just refuses to suffer through watching that dumb ass anymore.

I have no idea what just happened.
