Time’s Joe Klein reveals the obvious: MSNBC’s Ed Schultz is stupid

by editor on January 11, 2011

Time magazine’s Joe Klein showed up on CNN’s Sunday “Reliable Sources” on Saturday. He was fired up. Angry. Disgusted.

Ed Schultz demonstrating the sophisticated analysis that pissed off Joe Klein

In general, he’s unhappy about the lack of complexity on cable news. Specifically, he referred to an earlier appearance he made on MSNBC with Ed Schultz. He flat out called Ed stupid, which will undoubtedly come as news to no one except Schultz himself.

“Well, that brings me to point number two. It’s really hard, we choose – cable news chooses – not to really deal with complicated issues with the level of complexity that they deserve. I was on Ed Schultz’ show to discuss Afghanistan. I was just back from there. It is the most complicated issue imaginable. And the guy writes down on a piece of paper, ‘Get out now,’ and holds it up on the screen. That’s so stupid and it’s so unworthy. And it really — it’s one of the reasons why people hold us in lower regard than they do lawyers.”

C’mon, Joe, you work for a news magazine. Tell us something we don’t know.

This is a list of Schultz’s sponsors. I plan to contact them this week and advise them as long as they sponsor Schultz I will not consider buying their products or services, nor watch or listen to any station that carries him. Further I will encourage my friends and family do the same.

The answer to the question of “why is he still on the air” is because he still has sponsors. We can do something about that, we need to do something about that.
We will do something about this!

Angie’s List & Carbonite do buisiness on both sides of the political arena. They also run spots with Beck, I’m just saying…

At some point the most “elite” of the liberals will lose patient with the idiots liberals and will seek to destroy or enslave them as well… No one is safe. With that said Ed is an idiot and who is surprised?

I guess Klein is upset that Ed and his ilk are mucking up the attempt to vilify Fox News as the lone evil out there.

Its almost like the dire straights of the country is finally dawning on some liberals and they realize their MO of the last decade is immature and should be changed to reflect the times. Not Ed though.

Note also that Ed Schultz apparently has some difficulties with fitting 2 three-letter words on an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper. That must be some pretty tough planning. Maybe a staff meeting would have helped making the two words somewhat equal in size.

WEAPONS GRADE STUPID!!! LOLOLOL Were you ever in the service danybhoy? This quip has a particular military flavor to it. It’s pithy, funny as hell, and has an incredible ring of truth to it. I love reading the posts in this blogsite. WEAPONS GRADE STUPID, man it’s a keeper. I’m putting this one in my scrapbook, if you don’t mind. And OBTW, Ed is indeed WEAPONS GRADE STUPID! I can’t listen to anyone on MSLSD for more than a minute before I get hives.

Thanks, but no I have not. I must give credit where it’s due, I got that saying from Andrew Wilkow. He hosts The Wilkow Majority on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. This is the best radio show many have not heard of yet.
