MSNBC Libtalker: I Could EASILY Out-Draw Glenn Beck!
Libtalker Burning Up Over Rally Turnout Figure
In the insecure world of show business, there's nothing worse than the feeling of being upstaged. That's why for libtalker Ed Schultz, the thought of a cable rival pulling off a wildly successful event such as Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally is painful to endure.
Of course, ideological politics are heavily at play here as well, that's why Schultz sees a role for his pinky ring-wearing thug pals: with union help, we could EASILY top Beck's turnout!
Sure, Ed, give it your best shot!
We promise we won't complain about your date selection or lack of inflammatory rhetoric should you choose to take the high road.
Here's what he told radio listeners (if clip is not available, it will be shortly):
SCHULTZ (07:00): Hold it right there! Before we get to her answer, I could get every union head in this country, I could organize every progressive group in this country, the main bloggers. This could be The Ed March. Folks, 300,000 people on the heels of six months' promotion, that ain't no big shakes!
Six months' promotion, NBC News says 300,000 people. I bet I could do that! I bet I could do that with this radio show and my TV show and six months' production, six months' promotion, if I had the budget I could equal that march. I know I could!
I guarantee you, I could do more than 300,000! It ain't a big deal!
We can't wait to see what you can accomplish, Big Eddie. Get to work.
