Libtalker Ed Schultz Too Important To Follow Traffic Laws
Do Road Closures Apply To MSNBC Talkers?
While MSNBC libtalker Ed Schultz regularly projects the image of a working class good ol' boy who can relate to Larry Lunchbucket, in a weak moment, his inner elitist quickly emerges.
Traffic laws? Those don't apply to celebrities, do they?
Here's a catch from Monday's syndicated radio program: listen as Schultz reveals he knowingly drove for some distance over closed highways, all to "prove a point".
What point? That Ed Schultz is more important than the rest of us?
ED SCHULTZ (04:30): So then I went and checked out what happens when they shut down a highway and you drive on it. Well, it's a $1000 fine and possible 90 days in jail. I said, well this isn't going to work out real good with the boss, 'cause he sent me a nice email over the holidays and wanted me to come back which made me feel pretty good.
So anyway, a cop car did pass me and the guy jerked his head around and then I pulled off on the side of the road, so it was no big deal. But I thought, if this guy stops me, I got some serious explaining to do here.
SCHULTZ (13:51): And I could have got a big fine but I didn't care, I was out to prove a point.
Is Big Eddie out to sabotage his own career? He consistently seems to be his own worst enemy. What's next?
