“Leftist” political commentator Ed Schultz said on his radio show that right-wing host Laura Ingram was a “slut”

Schultz said,

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?” he said on his radio show. “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.

Schultz, better known for his football announcements than his brilliance as a member of the mainstream Left, has always rode a precarious line in modern politics. A man who by his own admission was right of center and has come to champion union causes, is not a real Leftist. Take his opinion on women’s choice, which he says, “as a Christian” he opposes.

Schultz,

 Now, as far as abortion is concerned, in my heart I’m a Christian. I’m against it. But we’re livin’ in a country where the majority rule and I’m not, as a talk show host, overturning Roe v Wade.

im not trying to keep good-willed individuals out of the Left, but when a man who obviously has a different set of priorities than the rest of his fellow travelers, don’t you think its time we redefine what that Left looks like?
