The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

MSNBC Libtalker Announces Election Boycott, Rosie Stands Firm


Schultz Can't Decide Whether To Vote Ten Times Or Not At All

Introducing America's most confused voter: Ed Schultz.

Just months after advocating ballot-stuffing in order to keep Scott Brown from winning in Massachusetts, the MSNBC libtalker is now pushing a 2010 midterm election boycott.

Why the switch? Because Schultz feels Democrats haven't done enough to combat Republicans who have objected to near-perpetual unemployment benefits. Building an alliance of "99ers" (claimants who've reached a maximum payout of 99 weeks), Big Ed wants to pressure Dems into "running over" the GOP.

Singled out is Harry Reid, who Schultz believes doesn't deserve to be re-elected.

Here's what he told radio listeners during Friday's program:

ED SCHULTZ (30 JULY 2010 HOUR ONE) (04:58): And I'm announcing today, I'm not going to vote in the midterms. I'm not going to do it. You can say it's un-American. No, it's rather revolutionary is what it is. I'm at that point. I'm checking out.

I'm checking out of the Democrats because they are proving to me that they don't know how to handle these big babies over on the right that say no. You know what you do? You get in the driver's seat, you hit the throttle, and you run over them.

Meanwhile, fellow libtalker Rosie O'Donnell capped off her broadcast week wondering why she made the news for criticizing Obama (clearly not aware of the Radio Equalizer's immense POWER over the media). Though she didn't back down from her earlier complaints, actually pushing the envelope further, Rosie did manage to slam longtime conservative nemesis Elisabeth Hasselbeck:

ROSIE O'DONNELL (1:49:58): I was on the news last night, apparently, because I said that I didn't think a sitting president should be on a fluffy daytime talk show.

JANETTE BARBER (executive producer): It's weird, 'cause what'd we talk about that, for twenty seconds, and it ends up everywhere?

O'DONNELL (1:51:32): The thing that gets me is, he's on The View, and the oil is still leaking...It seems like a frivolous thing to do, to go on a daytime talk show. Like, do a sitdown interview, hold a national press conference, get Barbara Walters to do a one-on-one...

To me, all politicians ever do anymore is campaign...

Rosie & Friends miss the key point here: just six months ago, she would have been vilified by her own side for daring to criticize the Dear Leader. Now, her assertions spark curiosity but not outrage. It says a lot about Obama's sinking popularity.


  • Only an emotional, immature child would be torn between "voting ten times or not at all". It's just gotta be extremes.

  • You almost had it. Ed is extreme, period. He'll probably have an extreme reaction to being called extreme, it's what he does, & it's who he is.

  • I think Ed is on to something, all dimowits should boycott voting indefinitely, at least 50 years or so would be a good start as that's how long it will take to fix Bomma's screwups.

  • Ed's not trusted by the left and the right hates him. Who exactly is his audience then since he's a crazed person?

  • Ed the mouth is really a republican plant

  • Works for me. I don'tthink someone that unhinged should be voting anyway.
