Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Obama is a WHAT?” edition

Heh.

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.

Halperin apparently thought there was a delay for the censors to beep out his word.  It didn’t happen that way.

MSDNCNBC has responded:

“Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers,” in a statement by MSNBC spokesperson Jeremy Gaines. “We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst.”

If only they applied civility standards to their hosts, right?  Fortunately for Halperin, he isn’t employed full-time by MSDNC.  As such, (a) nobody was watching when he made the statement; and (b) it’s not like he’ll be yet another jobless claim on Obama’s watch.

  1. And, he had it right. No apology needed there. Ovimit has been a “dick” since day one and before.
    I love watching the commies snap at each other, now that they realize the American people are not gonna go for another round of Ovimit and his commie buddies. I can only “hope” that this is only the beginning of the decline of this “dear reader” and his evil empire building.

  2. Mark Halperin will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst for not using the politically correct term: “Weiner”.

  4. I don’t see why “Progressives” have their collective noses out of joint. Halperin was simply following a time-honored tradition of the Left: speaking truth to power.

  5. Ann Coulter co-hosted a local radio program here in LA last night at the Nixon Library. She said it’s the first time she’s ever agreed with something Mark Halperin said. Hysterical!
