From the mouth of MSNBC’s whiner Ed Schultz:
Following the Democratic loss in the Wisconsin recall election on Tuesday night, MSNBC’s ”The Ed Show” host Ed Schultz told viewers, “This is not going to be an easy night for many broadcasters who are liberal.”
At the top of his special 11 p.m. post-Wisconsin recall episode, the liberal host known for his over-the-top behavior added, “This is not going to be an easy night for this broadcaster,” putting the blame squarely on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision.
“This is not going to be an easy night for many broadcasters who are liberal,” Schultz said. “This is not going to be an easy night for this broadcaster. To say that I’m shocked and stunned is pretty much an understatement. But I also think — that as a real warning to Americans — that money is now infiltrated into our political system like we have never seen before. And the ruling by Citizens United is now a real message to every American. It is going to take an insurmountable amount of effort on the ground for the progressive movement and the Democrats to do what they need to do in 2012. And this is also a real message to local politics, that this money will filter down and Citizen United will affect federal and state elections over time.”
