    This is scary.

    MSNBC's Ed Schultz...a notorious partisan hack, but an MSNBC host, said he would cheat to keep Teddy Kennedy's former seat in Democrat hands.

    Radio host Brian Maloney captured MSNBC's Ed Schultz making a startling remark on his radio show yesterday about supporting voter fraud in Massachusetts, so Scott Brown would lose. The audio is below along with the transcript.

    SCHULTZ (23:02): I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts I'd try to vote 10 times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right. I'd cheat to keep these (profanity) out. I would. 'Cause that's exactly what they are.

    And people talk about right-wing "hatred?" Wow.

    Should Schultz's fantasy come true, and the will of the people be actively subverted...it's time for 1776, part deux.

    I would like to see the national reaction if Rush L. said something like this.

    It doesn't matter what side of the political fence you're on to notice how the OP comment isn't given the same level of negative scrutiny that if it had come from a conservative. I seldom play the "liberal media bias" card, but it certainly seems to fit here.

    Maybe its because most conservatives just consider the source and the stupidity of such statements and the implication of corruption if followed through........

    .........and refuse these assinine battles which have little to do with rational thinking or intelligence.

    One can stoop so low to catch all such issues that they actually miss the point by the diversion.......:tonofbricks:

    Great point. If he or say Palin said this I could only imaging the "outrage" that we would see.

    I wish Palin would put Ed Schultz in a headlock, and commence to the worst noogie attack in recorded history.

    Either that, or Dick Cheney could invite him to go hunting... :D :D

    (just kidding about that last one)
