poor ed schultz.  the head raving lunatic at MSNBC didn't even make it into the story until the last few paragraphs.  and for a network full of ratings flops, he is also the biggest flop.

but why would ms. maddow be up in arms over reproductive rights?  it would seem that she dealt herself out of that game quite some time ago.

MSNBC Presses Obama on Campaign Promises

If President Obama happened to glance at “The Rachel Maddow Show” last Monday, he might have winced.

Ms. Maddow pretended to celebrate the passage of a health care overhaul bill in the House, calling it “potentially a huge generational win for the Democratic Party” — but then halted the triumphant music and called it an “electoral defeat.”

The Stupak amendment, she said, was “the biggest restriction on abortion rights in a generation.” Then she wondered aloud about the consequences for Democrats “if they don’t get women or anybody who’s pro-choice to ever vote for them again.” She returned to the subject the next four evenings in a row.

This is how it looks to have a television network pressuring President Obama from the left.

While much attention has been paid to the feud between the Fox News Channel and the White House, the Obama administration is now facing criticism of a different sort from Ms. Maddow, Keith Olbermann and other progressive hosts on MSNBC, who are using their nightly news-and-views-casts to measure what she calls “the distance between Obama’s rhetoric and his actions.”

ed had tom harkin (who is still alive, as it turns out), on his televised cavalcade of human folly tonight.  harkin guaranteed that lieberman, lincoln, nelson, and landrieu would all vote to allow the bill onto the senate floor with a public option.  well, I think he did.  ed kept putting words in harkin's mouth, and harkin kept saying, "yes, well, I mean, [no]".  he did keep saying that "they will be among the 60", which could mean a couple of things, but ed's show isn't about precision or communicating anything very clearly.

and ed is orange on his show.  he is physically orange.  he came from radio, and no one from TV Land seems to be helping him, but he is orange.
