What is it with these idiots?
MSNBC's David Shuster [said] that the Clinton campaign is "pimping out" Chelsea Clinton.
Really. How could a reporter use that kind of language? It's clearly off-limits. On the other hand, Shuster
did time at Fox, so maybe that affected him.
What's next from this guy? Reports that Obama is "pimping out" his wife?
If the unprincipled poll and focus groupd driven Clinton thougth that literally pimping out Chelsea would get her a few votes, then Chelsea would be walking the streets.
Chris Matthews may have been playing Edgar Bergen to David Shuster's Charlie McCarthy. If so, this proves that Matthews is the real dummy.
After 8 years of open season on demeaning and insulting a Republican president, people are shocked that the mainstream media are going to do the same to a Democratic president.
The Clinton camp has been blowing Shuster’s comments way out of proportion. They are trying to spin this comment so that they come out as a victim, and play on the ignorance of the general public. It was in poor taste for Shuster to use slang when commenting on Chelsea, but the punishment he's receiving for it is ridiculous.
He stated that Chelsea was “being pimped out”, when he should have said she was “using her personal contacts for her Mother's political gain”. And noone would have argued that.
Its not like Hillary was really trying to pimp out Chelsea.
"It was in poor taste for Shuster to use slang when commenting on Chelsea, but the punishment he's receiving for it is ridiculous."
I have to call bullshit on that one.
If someone had used that language about one of the Cheney daughters, or the Bush twins, their ass would've been fired.
8:54 Anonymous is confused; Bill Clinton was not a Republican.
The bullshit part is that anonymous is partly correct, and that's what unfair. Look at what happened to the Dixie Chicks after that off-the-cuff comment about old George W... they were basically banned from radio for expressing their opinion...which I though what part of her rights thanks to the First Amendment.
Where's the justice in that?
