Oh ... The Outrage!

First my thoughts then some links to others including ... arghhhh ... NOW.

What Shuster said was rude, crude and unacceptable ... especially from a reporter. But it does show how the vulgarity of the "hip hop" culture has crept into our everyday lexicon and words like "pimp", "ho", that years ago would have gotten your mouth washed out with soap, today are considered plain speak. It's not. It's crude and tells us more about Shusters available vocabulary than his political bias, as Hillary would have us believe. An apology, for sure. Suspension? Please!

Now ... first read this via Instapundit:
WORKING THE PIMP: "It’s hard to read about MSNBC’s relationship to the mothership Clinton campaign these days without being reminded of Vichy France."

But Mr. Bush, you have hidden behind the General's skirts ... And in **pimping** General David Petraeus, Sir, in violation of everything this country has been assiduously and vigilantly against for 220 years, you have tried to blur the gleaming **radioactive** demarcation between the military and the political, and to portray **your** party as the one associated with the military, and your opponents as the ones somehow antithetical to it.
(Keith Obermann, Sept 20, 2007, MSNBC)

Guess General Petraeus' feelings aren't hurt quite as easily as the presumptive Commander-In-Chief.
