When possibly the most biased person on television questions your veracity and sanity after you appear in a Republican presidential debate, you know you've done a good job.
It is precisely for that reason Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) should be pleased with being slighted by Ed Schultz who said on the MSNBC program bearing his name Tuesday, "Facts and logic have no place in the Republican Party. That’s why Bachmann I guess you could say is the perfect fit" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ED SCHULTZ: Bachmann for that matter is exactly what the modern Republican Party is all about. Bachmann has never voted for a tax increase. She believes government is the problem and the free market is going to save everything in America.
Facts and logic have no place in the Republican Party. That’s why Bachmann I guess you could say is the perfect fit. Republican policy has systematically destroyed the middle class in America for years, but Bachmann is her Party’s biggest cheerleader as well.
Isn't there a saying about idiots in glass houses?
And what's to be said about an hour-long program on a so-called "news network" that covered important issues of the day including Monday's Republican presidential debate without any commentary from people on the right side of the aisle?
Schultz's guests Tuesday evening included two Democrats from the state of Wisconsin, two union leaders, a Democrat from New Jersey, a correspondent from Nation magazine as well as that publication's editor.
Including the host, that's eight liberals to no conservatives.
For those that point fingers at Fox News for being biased, at least their prime time programs consistently invite Democrats and left-leaning contributors on to give an opposing viewpoint.
On Tuesday, the only conservatives to be found on "The Ed Show" were the people being eviscerated by the host and his guests.
And MSNBC has the nerve to call this news.
