Too Far: MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Calls Laura Ingraham A ‘Right-Wing Slut’

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - Yeah. Apparently Ed Schultz has forgotten that he’s not on 'Saturday Night Live'. And that it isn’t 1978. Yesterday on his radio show, Schultz decided to call Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut.” Now, before you get all up in arms, Schultz did clarify his statement. He followed it by calling her a “talk slut.” That’s better, right? No.

Ed Schultz: “And what do the Republicans thinking about? They’re not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They’re just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday but you know what they’re talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name?, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.”
