Big Ed Schultz tinkers with time: When Hillary Clinton declined to testify in December, all the usual suspects suggested that she was faking her medical condition.
This upset the folks at MSNBC—the same people who had insisted, for roughly a month, that George Zimmerman simply couldn’t have a broken nose. (In fact, Zimmerman did have a broken nose. Our leaders kept insisting he didn't well past the point when it was clear that he almost surely did.)
Whatever! At present, our fiery leaders are very upset that the usual fools at Fox played this card against Hillary Clinton. But last night, Big Ed Schultz decided to run us rubes a wee bit on this point.
Doggone it! Midway through last evening’s show, he teased an upcoming segment:
LAURA INGRAHAM (videotape): Immaculate concussion. But did she really have a concussion?Hillary Clinton “continues to get trashed by righties?” So said Schultz, and to prove his point, he played videotape of Bolton—from December 17.
SCHULTZ: Hillary Clinton continues to get treatment for a blood clot, and she continues to get trashed by righties.
JOHN BOLTON (videotape): When you don’t want to go to a meeting or a conference or an event, you have a diplomatic illness. And this is a diplomatic illness.
REP. ALLEN WEST (videotape): I’m not a doctor, but it seems as though that the secretary of state has come down with a case of Benghazi flu.
SCHULTZ: We’ll bring you the latest on the secretary of state. And Sandy Hook Elementary students begin their return to school as the president refuses to let gun control fall out of focus...
After that, he played videotape of West—from December 20. The tape of Ingraham also dates to December 20.
Fox News has been dumb for a very long time; some of our leaders can’t wait to catch up. Also, free-floating anger is very good—for ratings, if for nothing else.
