Video: Ed Schultz Greets the 112th Congress

Posted: Jan 07, 2011 10:37 AM
Via Newsbusters, vintage Schultz at his unhinged, red-faced finest:

"This is an ideological war. I say it on camera tonight here on MSNBC. I will fight these bastards every night at 6 o'clock because I know what they're up against. I know what they want to do. They want to take down American workers. They want to outsource jobs. They want to destroy the American dream. Concentrate the wealth to the top, and control minorities. That's what they're about."

That delightful contribution to civil discourse occurred on Wednesday evening -- mere hours after the Republican House had been sworn in.  Can you imagine what this guy might do once the GOP actually starts doing things like repealing Obamacare and investigating Democratic corruption?  Thank goodness he's never threatened to do something violent or destructive like burning a building to the ground.  Oh, wait...gulp.

MSNBC talk show screamer Ed Schultz had a meltdown in the network’s 30 Rock newsroom, shouting at staff, “I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place.”

UPDATE: Schultz later apologized, sort of. 

"I just referred to the Republicans as a term I probably shouldn't have used, but, I know what, they just infuriate me... So, if I offended some of you by that term I used a few moments ago, I apologize. Maybe I've had too much TV."

Perhaps TV has had too much Ed Schultz.
