MSNBC Talker: Let's Rip Out Cheney's Heart


With Deranged Cheney Rant, Ed Moves Into Malloy Territory


With his cable talk show preempted for Olympics coverage this week, MSNBC libtalker Ed Schultz is in desperate need of career attention. Does that mean we should ignore his most recent, hate-filled rant?

Not on your life, particularly as Big Ed crosses (perhaps for the first time) firmly into Mike Malloy territory, the extreme fringe of left-wing talk radio.

Just remember, Eddie, you asked for it, so no complaining if the blowback proves painful. From Wednesday's syndicated radio show:

SCHULTZ (01:59): I just want all of you to know that I get my entertainment through NewsBusters. (laughs, then in mincing voice)

How dare the Democrats make fun of Dick Cheney's heart problems and turn it into a political football. (back to normal voice, to the extent possible) I can just hear some little weasel who's writing that at NewsBusters. You're my entertainment.

Bozell, Bozell and his bozo crew. You're damn right, Dick Cheney's heart's a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. I'm glad he didn't tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.

SCHULTZ (04:38): And we want Shooter to make it. Hell, we hope he goes and shoots somebody else in the face. That was a helluva story way back when.

SCHULTZ (05:26): How come Dick Cheney's health care isn't being dropped? Do you realize that if you had five heart attacks, hell, you wouldn't get past two heart attacks and they'd dump you.

But because you're a war criminal and because you are on the take from Haliburton and you had these executive meetings in 2001 back in the, you know, the days of the rolling blackouts and executive privilege on how we're going to develop energy policy in this country, you do stuff like that, hell, you can get the best health care on the face of the earth.

  • Way to go, Ed! Thanks for saying what many of us think! Remember last fall when they did a poll and Cheney garnered like 1% approval rating in the polls? There's no love lost on that old curmudgeon....except in the radical CPAC/teabagger crowd. Ah how they long for the ole days, of white only drink fountains and soda shops! The REAL America (kudos to Scarah Palin) harkens back to the days of yore! Thank God we're on a trajectory forward and not backwards!

  • Great idea by some loser Leftist manager at that disaster of a network.

    Let's bring in the lunatics who drove Air America into Chapter 7 with their hundreds of listeners and give them national TV shows.

    Every non-Leftist in America is loving that these lunatics are out in the open where everyone can see that they are mentally insane.

    Liberalism IS a mental disease.

  • Could you imagine if someone had said that about Obama?

  • As one of those who post at Newsbusters, I want to thank Ed for taking notice. Just remember Ed, you keep saying stupid things, we'll keep commenting on it.

    I will say that I AGREE with Ed about using Cheney's health as a political football. Cheney is an excelent example of why our healthcare system is the greatest. This man has heartattacks & chestpains more often then Ed has broadcast success, & he's lived to fight another day. He usually walks off these things like someone tries walking off an ankle injury. Ed, the fact Cheney is still alive says all you need to know about America's healthcare system, it the best in the world, & you & your political thugs can't argue that.

  • MSNBC hires mean people. The extreme of the left has given liberals a bad name as the example below. Stop your race baiting!

  • All the haters against Cheney is proof positive that they are afraid of a real leader. Obuttmunch couldn't lead himself out of a wet paper bag. If Cheney was president or Bush back in office we woulnd't have to worry who had a spine or not.

  • Double standards in full wind today.

    But then, it IS on MSNBC, refuge of the totally incompetent. Who watches this channel anyway?

    Bill Gates must be regretting his decision to get involved with the pitiful group of individuals that anchor MSNBC.

  • This is how someone on the losing end of a debate reacts. Call names and wish his opposition harm. MSNBC has no moral standards at all

  • I didn't see one thing I disagreed with other than Malloy is definitely a little theatrical

    By Anonymous dvdoff, at 26 February, 2010 10:17  

  • Ironic that the left calls conservatives and Tea Partiers hateful. This is a case of projection, if ever there was one. I guess under Obamacare, Cheney would receive "end of life" counseling and be told to just end it all. It's exactly the point that Cheney receives excellent health care regardless that makes the case that the Dummocrats are attempting to destroy the best health care system in the world. We should belabor the point that many others have made and ask Dems in Congress why they exempt themselves from their own health care plan. If it's so great for the everyday rest of us, why aren't they jumping on the bandwagon?

  • Ed needs to be taken to the woodshed. Typical liberal hypocricy. Wish I could meet him on the street and kick him around.

  • Actually, it was a great idea to bring over the hundreds of Air America listeners because that caused ratings to triple.

    Now, they can continue to weave their magic and make MSNBC follow in the footsteps of Air America.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 26 February, 2010 11:27  

  • Well I do agree that the left has no business being in Radio (Air American) it and any future attempt at similar are pretty much doomed to failure.

    Real Americans (liberals,leftist,progressives) have never been a very good audience of hate/fear radio/TV. That's pretty much a conservative thing.

    Go get em ed - An inconvenient pit-bull for truth. Careful though - too much truth and oops - you're a liberal media lunatic.

  • Oh Ed,I only hope you suffer the same fate as Cheney in the near future.

  • This kind of talk doesn't surprise me when it comes from a liberal. They only pretend to care about humanity, they don't really care about anyone.

    Wonder how he would feel about it if someone talked about him in that fashion? I am sure he would be crying foul.

    Poor liberal crybaby.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 26 February, 2010 11:59  

  • Does it really surprise anyone when a LIBERAL says things like this? NO, because we all know that liberals just pretend to care about humanity they don't really care about anyone.
    Except themselves of course.

  • is a sad day when someone speaks this way as a broadcaster.. if ed had a heart attack tomorrow he would be singing a different song

  • To the first commenter: You are an idiot. Obviously a product of the public screwal system. Your buddies the Dems are the ones who supported slavery and segregation, not the Republicans. Read an f'in book you entitlement hounding sloth.

  • So, the only "real" Americans are "(liberals,leftist,progressives)"? That is beyond stupid. In fact, that is so stupid, I suspect you are actually Ed Schultz.

    You are, of course, wrong. If real Americans were, in fact, only liberals, leftist or progressives, we'd either still be a British colony or, more likely, would have been conquered by that all powerful international force known as France.

    Good God, isn't it a little early in San Francisco to be talking stupid?

  • Heh.....Fat Eddy should know about shootings. After all he did manage to shoot and kill his own hunting dog years ago. And from the looks of it, that Pillsbury Doughboy (Ed) is on the road to a blown heart as well. That would be rich....if he kicked before Cheney from a bad ticker. Ha!

  • It is good that the "Compassionate, Caring, and Political Correct Mafia" are showing the world who they really are. The shield can never be retracted to cover up these "Hate America" Communist, Progressives.

    Cheney could kick Schult's ass during an intellectual debate while undergoing open heart surgery.

    Can MSNBC find anyone who is more Mentally and Intellectualy Challanged than their current line up?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 27 February, 2010 11:26  

  • Keep talking are proof positive of what we already know, that liberals are haters and when they can't support their opinions they come out calling names and spewing vitriol. You're helping the cause of the conservatives by behaving this way, so keep up the good work:o)

  • As a liberal, all I can say is Ed, GTF off my side or STFU.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 27 February, 2010 18:49  

  • Ed and Malloy would stomp a mud hole in both Beck and Limbaugh's drug-addled asses and walk it dry.
    Good on Ed for saying what we already know - Cheney is a war criminal and the GOP is complicit in his reign of terror.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 02 March, 2010 08:24  

  • Really, Ed & Malloy would "stomp a mud hole" in Beck & Rush? Would you grow the eff up? Really, this is exactly why I don't take most on the political left seriously. I generally don't enjoy dealing with unhinged idiot lefties like you "anonymous"(=coward), but sometimes a confrontation is in order. The next one is in November, & you will not like the results that will be coming down the road.

    BTW, just for the record, Ed would actually try to kick someone's butt of those he does'nt agree with because he has a history of confrontations in bars & elsewhere. As for Malloy, he's an old fart that talks big, but could never back up his big talk. Guys pushing 70 ain't kicking anyones butt.

  • Ed is right about Cheney & also McCain! They are both on the "Government" health care system that we the people pay for!
    Cheney has survived 5 Heart attacks
    since the age of 37..McCain went to the Naval Base for his Cancer surgery, & they both are still alve!Why is it,that ALL the American people cannot have this same "RIGHT" without having to pay outrageous insurance policies that will drop you... if they have the same pre-existing conditions as our beloved politicians have have?
    Can any one explain? Just asking...
