So riddle me this, Batman:   how does MSNBC justify suspending that loose cannon of a political reporter, David Shuster, for asking if Chelsea Clinton is being "pimped out" by the Clinton campaign while completely ignorning the exact same phrase that slimeball Keith Olberman used in describing Gen. David Petraeus

Double standard, anyone?

When Petraeus was addressing Congress last year, the star of MSNBC, Olberman, had this to say about our military commander in Iraq:  "And in pimping General David Petraeus and in the violation of everything this country has been...against for 220 years....."

If "pimping" is such a horrific, suspendable term for the delicate flowers over at MSNBC, when does Olberman's suspension begin? 

And naturally, Hillary revels in playing the victim.   She fired off a letter to the president of NBC News, a sob story if there ever was one ("I became Chelsea's mother long before I ran for any office").

I'm not one of those who ever mocked Chelsea's appearance or took any cheap shots when she was a litltle girl in the White House, like some of my talk radio colleagues did.   But these days, Chelsea is an adult and by representing her mother's campaign, she's playing in the big leagues.

"Pimped out" is hardly a problem.
