By David Edwards

The liberal host of MSNBCs The Ed Show and The Ed Schultz Show radio program may have gone too far Monday when he said that conservative radio host Laura Ingraham was a talk slut.

President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Missouri on Sunday but you know what theyre talking about, like this right-wing slut, whats her name? Schultz asked. Laura Ingraham? Yeah, shes a talk slut.

You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obamas doing it, theyre working him over, he added.

Listen to this audio from The Ed Schultz Show, broadcast May 23, 2011.

...She may be many things, but a slut is not one of them...

5. Yeah, "skank" would have fit much better
Perhaps that's the word he was looking for and misspoke. Or maybe he was just a Clod for a Day.

12. I'm not privy to the details of her private life.
She may be a total slut, like Schwatzenegger. Who knows? Still not terribly professional of Ed to "call it like he sees it" on this one.

43. It's not just HIM seeing it. Her ex-friend David BROCK in "Blinded by the Right"
Edited on Wed May-25-11 01:36 PM by UTUSN
detailed the goings on with INGRAHAM, COULTERgeist, Matt PUDGE, and other wingnuts when he was their darling, before he came on over to us.

Off the top of my head:

INGRAHAM:

* Couldn't keep a boyfriend, threatened one of them with a pistol to the head.

* Crawled, boozed or coked out of her mind, on hands and knees across a barroom floor.

* Conducted vicious outings of Gay students at her college.

* Would ridicule and mimic disabled people.

* Would hobnob with LIMBOsevic then come back to tell tales about his habits (drugs? sex or non-sex?)


COULTERgeist:

* Subsists on wine and cigarettes.

* Was one of the "leprecahn" or whatever cute name, of the attorneys in the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy, fueling the CLINTON fake impeachment and leaking stories to media.


Matt PUDGE:

* Courted BROCK for boyfriend, taking him to Gay bars and sending him flowers and such.


***********What *I* know about INGRAHAM is that after her supposed conversion to Catholicism, her supposed donations to the Little Sisters of the Poor, I have NEVER heard ANY change of tone, of spirituality, of Jesus-goodness, NOTHING BUT the same vileness and hatred pouring out of her piehole. If you want a crucifix "just like the one Laura wears" I'll Google it and post it below on Edit:

80. Hardly the biggest outrage ever.
Edited on Wed May-25-11 05:05 PM by Mimosa
I'm a feminist from way back. Whatever Ingraham gets called doesn't bother me. But there are probably more scathing descriptions which would work.

BTW, those stainless steel mass produced crosses usually used to sell for $12.95 or so in Catholic religious stores. They're really cheapies. There's big profit in bumping them up to $49.95 as priced on Ingraham's site. Why don't I think the Little Sisters of the Porr receives all the profits? ;)

Here's one just like it but with a 24" chain for $39.95.

Rising price of gold has made even the cheap plated items go way up.

So what if she can't think straight? Conservative pin-up
Laura Ingraham gives good sound bite.

November Vanity Fair

BY ERIC ALTERMAN |

I first met Laura Ingraham on the set of MSNBC on the network's first day on the air. If memory serves, she asked former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres a question displaying both amazing audacity and embarrassing ignorance. Coming just days after the explosion aboard TWA flight 800 over Long Island, Laura wanted to know if Peres thought it was a good idea for the U.S. to bomb Syria or Libya in response. Peres clearly thought she was nuts and did his best to explain that no one even knew if foul play had been involved yet. In between interview segments, Laura and I gossiped about Joe Klein, who had just been unmasked as "Anonymous." She told me that a day earlier she had seen Klein coming out of a meeting at CBS all smiles, chuckling over something with his bosses there and so, as far as she could tell, his future was assured. ...more

98. The Catholic Church is attracting these despicable right wing hate mongers.
The reason is simple. The Catholic Church has been taken over by Opus Dei, (Work of God), the secret fascist cult that originated in Spain and supported the dictator Franco. A number of popes, including the ultra-conservative Pius XII, John XXIII and JOhn Paul I refused to recognize these medieval mentality extremists. Their secret admirer, John Paul II recognized it. They only answer to the pope and accordingly tell the local bishops to go piss up a rope if they are not Opus Dei members. An example of their mentality is the multi-million dollar facility that they built in NY that has separate entrances for men and women. They are a misogynistic as any of the fundamental Islamists. Their intent is to infiltrate business and especially politics to impose their theocratic views on what they consider to be godless secular societies. If you wonder why John Paul II is being rushed for sainthood even though he supported the Legions of Christ whose founder was a notorious pedophile you only have to realize the extent that these Opus Dei has taken control of the Catholic Church. Pope John Paul II replaced every liberal bishop with staunch conservatives who are alienating the laity with their demands for faithful compliance to such nonsense as condemnation of practical birth control methods. People should not discount them especially when the align themselves with the Christian fundamentalists.

Tell it like it is. I'm sure many will call for his head (because they refuse to acknowledge Republicans suck). As Republicans sit back and denigrate the President call him every name in the book, and consider us lower than whale shit, we're going to tear Ed apart.


Great. let's get rid of one of our champions.


Morality, good for us, unknown by the Right.

insults that don't require slut, whore, cunt. These are female derogatory insults that have nothing to do with her mental capabilities or her right wing myopia.

I can think of many apt descriptors for Ingraham--none pleasant. But, I will absolutely not condone using sexist derogatory terms like that.

That said, I can understand how Ed's passion pushes him over the line sometimes.

41. I Agree.
Because of her idiotic political beliefs, there are dozens of legitimate epithets he could have pinned on her. But whenever a guy goes the slut/bitch/ho/c%$t route, it only makes me side with the woman against the man, even if her political views suck.

I've said for awhile that I think Ed Schulz too rock-stupid to be a reliable Dem spokeman. Unfortunately, it looks like I've been vindicated.

45. networks love fake outrage
it is free advertising for a show. Laura is in no way well liked by the people who would watch Ed. Rush has used this approach for year and years. Only really hurts if sponsors pull money. Not sure talk slut well get exactly sponsors worried.

As for Ed. People like him are what comes to mind when Jon Stewart talks about the liberal balance to Faux and how it's no better. On the other hand there simply isn't much Ed types on TV so shrug.

95. The only time I've ever heard
the word "slut" being used in reference to a man was with the word "man" before it.

"Man-slut"

"Man-whore"

See, if I heard a woman say she's sick of dating sluts, I would assume she's a lesbian talking about other women.

Because when someone says "slut" the immediate mental picture for most people is a woman. Not a man.


Kind of like if someone says they're sick of "ni**ers" moving into the neighborhood and messing it up. Even people who would never even THINK of using that word assume it means black people. Unless the speaker said "White ni**ers".

If you have to stick another word in front of a word, that means it's not commonly associated with the alternate usage. And that means it's wrong.

Yeah, if we're going to get out the clutching pearls and the fainting couches, I'll defend "talk slut" long before I'd defend the man making fun of Michael J. Fox and his illness. If Ingraham has a problem with it, I'm sure she can stick up for herself.

I doubt Mr. Schultz knows Ms. Ingraham well enough to call her that. Even if there were facts to support the characterization, he shouldn't call her that.

78. DON"T APOLOGISE, ED---say you will when Limpballs et. al. do the same
Edited on Wed May-25-11 04:42 PM by wordpix
Limbaugh: "That cracker made a lot of African-American millionaires." --Rush Limbaugh, on the death of longtime New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, July 13, 2010

"I'm a huge supporter of women. What I'm not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the women's movement especially when walking behind it." --Rush Limbaugh, responding to criticism that he is sexist and defending his selection as one of the judges at the 2010 Miss America Pageant, "Fox News' Fox & Friends," February 3, 2010

"Obama's got a health care logo that's right out of Adolf Hitler's playbook ... Adolf Hitler, like Barack Obama, also ruled by dictate." --Rush Limbaugh, Aug. 6, 2009

"The phony soldiers." --Rush Limbaugh, on U.S. service members who support withdrawal from Iraq (Source)

"He discusses his service in Iraq, the wounds he suffered there, and he says to me in this ad, 'Until you have the guts to call me a 'phony soldier' to my face, stop telling lies about my service.' You know, this is such a blatant use of a valiant combat veteran, lying to him about what I said, then strapping those lies to his belt, sending him out via the media in a TV ad to walk into as many people as he can walk into." --Rush Limbaugh, denouncing an ad by VoteVets.org featuring Iraq war veteran Brian McGough by likening him to a suicide bomber

"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it." --Rush Limbaugh, Jan. 19, 2007

"He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. ... This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting." --Rush Limbaugh, on an ad by Michael J. Fox endorsing Claire McCaskill for Senate for supporting embryonic stem cell research (Watch video)

"And don't forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There's a racial component here, too. And now, the newspaper that I'm reading all this from is The New York Times, and they, of course, don't mention that." --Rush Limbaugh, on the 2006 Ohio Senate primary race involving then-Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who is white

"This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation...I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of the need to blow some steam off?" --Rush Limbaugh, on the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal

"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society." --Rush Limbaugh

"We're not sexists, we're chauvinists -- we're male chauvinist pigs, and we're happy to be because we think that's what men were destined to be. We think that's what women want." --Rush Limbaugh

"She comes to me when she wants to be fed. And after I feed her -- guess what -- she's off to wherever she wants to be in the house, until the next time she gets hungry. She's smart enough to know she can't feed herself. She's actually a very smart cat. She gets loved. She gets adoration. She gets petted. She gets fed. And she doesn't have to do anything for it, which is why I say this cat's taught me more about women, than anything my whole life." --Rush Limbaugh, on his cat

"She sounds like a screeching ex-wife." --Rush Limbaugh, on Sen. Hillary Clinton

"They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it." --Rush Limbaugh

34. I was not aware that his ratings were low
enough to require this, on the assumption he is just not another guy who divides women into nuts or sluts categories.

36. Shoud have used different words, because he's right to point out her
hypocrisy, but now everyone will be focused on the words he used.

38. Big Ed is a blowhard!! He hates this person and thought of a terrible thing to say about her.
Disgusting how "slut" is he word that comes to mind. I can think of a lot of words like " idiot, deranged, unbalanced, mentally challenged" but slut?? I am a democrat, hate Laura Ingrahm, but this is not appropriate or necessary. Ed needs to shut up.

I don't like Laura Ingram but this jerk should be fined. If he was in private conversation, that's fine but he said this on the air. Was he drunk?

50. Go back and read
He did not call her a slut "like a slut". He called her a talk slut - there is a difference. Read and think please.

Why don't you THINK before you post, yourself.

55. Hate that word
There are far better ways to describe her - hypocrite, liar, flip-flopper, unprofessional, etc. There are certain words I never use and that is one of them.

63. Just when we get the right wing cornered.. Ed inserts his size 11's into his mouth
oh well.. part of the reason most people like ED is because he shoots from the lip.. he is a good soul who lets his emotions get the best of him at absolutely the wrong times every time..but I still like him..

65. Consistency
Ed should apologize IMO. It's wrong to attack a woman and call her a name like that. It's wrong the 50,000 times Rush Limbaugh does it and it's wrong when Ed Schultz does it.

But, the Righties should all be up in arms about free speech and political correctness over this too. If they were consistent they'd be the ones defending him.

67. No problem with it at all
He was not talking about sex. He was using another phrase for "media whore"- he called her a talk slut....

Meaning she will say anything....

I know how some of you feel about it-he probably does to. Can't wait to see his show tonight to see what he says.

Wonder if there will be a suspension?

Go on the air tonight & apologize Ed. Then move on and point out their hypocrisy without the sexist/racist namecalling.

in the opposite direction. She's a fucking idiot, not a slut.

72. and apologized today on his radio broadcast
Unfortunately, he only apologized to women who were offended by the term, when he should have been apologizing to any self-identified sluts he slandered by association with Laura Ingraham.

84. Recall the much worse things coming from right wing hate radio.
This is mild. Right wing hate radio promotes violence against political opponents and otherwise. The left does not promote violence.

96. Good for Ed!
I think his description is tame; she's so much worse than simply a talk slut. Thugs like her say any and everything they wish without ramifications, yet our side always backs down and apologizes.

Screw that! Go, Ed!

Edited on Fri May-27-11 09:40 AM by Carolina
a talk sl-- because she will do anything, go to any length to get paid for yapping her rightwing crap on the airwaves.

So the designation is actually fitting and, as I said above, rather tame compared to many other words that could have been used.
