Time Editor Calls Obama a Dick on National Television

Well, if the name fits...
Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama “a dick” on Thursday on a popular MSNBC morning show and then quickly apologized.

“I thought he was a dick yesterday,” Halperin, who also is a senior political analyst for MSNBC, said on Morning Joe, referring to the President’s conduct during his press conference.

Host Joe Scarborough hoped to prevent the comment from being broadcast, saying, “Delay that. Delay that. What are you doing? I can’t believe… don’t do that. Did we delay that?”

Just minutes later, Halperin quickly apologized to the president and viewers for his choice of words. “Joking aside, this is an absolute apology. I shouldn’t have said it. I apologize to the president and the viewers who heard me say that,” Halperin said.

“We’re going to have a meeting after the show,” Scarborough said.

The assholes at PMSNBC call Omama a "dick" and then fall all over themselves licking butt and try to apologize for it? WTF! He spoke the truth. Omama is a POS of the first degree AND a dick. What's to apologize for?

I don't suppose President Bush is going to get his apology for being called a traiter, liar, moron, racist, murderer, etc... by the fuckheads at PMSNBC?

Nahh - I didn't think so. The scumbags in the lame stream media continue to bury themselves in a sea of agenda driven reporting and they still don't seem to understand why they'll soon all be out of work. They're all pathetic and clueless.
