One of MSNBC's dumbest bricks, Schultz decided today that a good way to tee up a discussion on "toning down the rhetoric" would be to unload yet another one of his patented, unhinged screeds on the GOP:
"John Boehner has to deal with all of this tea party rhetoric in his caucus, and has no interest in trying to work with the President. Sarah Palin, and the Tan Man, and the rest of the Republicans have no interest in rising to the President's challenge on tone and accepting the plea to change it all. They already have a post-Tucson mentality."Pause. He means 'pre-Tucson mentality'. He is accusing conservatives of having a 'pre-Tucson mentality'.
"They don't care about stripping 32 million Americans from getting their healthcare. They don't give a damn about kids with pre-existing conditions. And they want every American armed and dangerous. Pretty clear - this is all about putting Democrats on the defensive, and filling their campaign coffers for 2012."How's that for a compelling rhetorical fig leaf? Schultz even threw in that embarrassingly out-of-context Michelle Bachmann quote - which was a nice touch, I thought.
But Kucinich wasn't buying it. Now watch as his pleasantly surprising response leaves Schultz flapping in the breeze.
