What a difference 48 hours makes in the barren wasteland known as Ed Schultz's mind.
Back on May 29, Schultz warned of giant flaming acorns falling from the sky if Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker prevailed in a June 5 recall election against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who was defeated by Walker in the 2010 gubernatorial race. (audio clips after page break)
An attorney for the National Center for Public Policy Research, speaking yesterday at Comcast's annual shareholder meeting, demanded an on-air correction and apology for defamatory claims by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
National Center general counsel Justin Danhof directed his statement to Brian Roberts, CEO of Comcast, majority owner of NBCUniversal, which in turn owns MSNBC. In his remarks, Danhof hinted at legal action if Comcast fails to comply. (video after page break)
In a related development, the Republican National Committee is extending heartfelt thanks to Ed Schultz for his help with their get-out-the-vote efforts.
Further confirmation that the June 5 recall election in Wisconsin has liberals more spooked than usual was provided yesterday courtesy of radio host and MSNBC flamethrower Ed Schultz. (audio clip after page break)
Female attorneys may want to think twice before applying at Mike Papantonio's law firm.
Papantonio, who also co-hosts the "Ring of Fire" weekend radio show, was filling in on Ed Schultz's radio program May 25 and complaining with guest Cliff Schecter about what he considers spineless Democrats who aren't aggressive enough against Republicans (audio) --
Reputed man of the cloth and race-baiter nonpareil Al Sharpton has shown once again how he's the least credible person in media, claiming that a voter registration drive he'll oversee will be "non-partisan." (audio clip after page break)
Aided by its simpatico allies at MSNBC, the Obama campaign has swung into action to contain yet another unfortunate outbreak of candor.
That an affinity of soulmates exists between Obamists and MSNBCers was never more evident than yesterday in the wake of Newark mayor Cory Booker appearing on "Meet the Press" and opining that the Obama campaign vilifying Mitt Romney for his work at Bain Capital was as "nauseating" as a proposed GOP ad campaign on President Obama's erstwhile ties to radical cleric Jeremiah Wright.

Rachel Maddow is perturbed that Republican Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas, said he will probably sign anti-abortion legislation he had not read.
Yes, you certainly have heard something along these lines before. Back in March 2010, two weeks before Obamacare became law, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unloaded a quote that will almost surely grace her obituary, saying of the 2,000-plus page proposed legislation, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversy."

Rachel Maddow loves to gush of her admiration for Americans who serve in uniform. She also complains how it's borderline criminal that New York City has not held a ticker-tape parade for soldiers who served in Iraq.
It's all posturing, nothing more. Maddow considers the military contemptible, as true-blue leftists always do. (video clip after page break)
On his "PoliticsNation" show last night, the Rev. Al Sharpton was indignant -- then again, when is he not? -- that Mitt Romney did not immediately reject a statement by a woman at a rally in Ohio that President Obama should be "tried for treason."
Romney answered the woman's question about restoring balance between the three branches of government but ignored her remark about Obama as treasonous. Approached by a reporter after the rally and asked if he agreed with the woman, Romney said "I obviously don't agree he should be tried." (video and audio clips after page break)
... which proves one thing, namely that attorney and "Ring of Fire" radio show cohost Mike Papantonio doesn't read The Huffington Post.
How can you tell you're dealing with someone whose politics could not be more obviously, obliviously liberal? When he or she denies being liberal. Conservatives, on the other hand, don't scurry from their conservatism. (audio clips after page break)
In a much-ballyhooed exchange with GOP consultant Alex Castellanos on "Meet the Press," Rachel Maddow parroted the liberal trope that women receive 77 cents for every dollar earned by men in America.
Castellanos added sorely needed nuance to the conversation, as liberals are so fond of doing, pointing out that men work longer hours and in higher paying jobs and women want more flexibility in the workplace, thus skewing the overall numbers. (video after page break)
Elizabeth Warren's credibility took another hit today with stories in both major Boston daily newspapers stating that Warren was listed as a minority in a professional directory for nine years before she was hired by Harvard Law School in 1995.
The Boston Herald broke the story on Friday that Harvard Law School described Warren as its sole Native American professor during the mid-1990s when Harvard was under fire for lack of diversity among its faculty.
Yet another example of the fluid, ever-evolving liberal concept of diversity.
Back in 1996, the Coalition for Civil Rights, a student group at Harvard Law School, ran a survey to determine whether law students at the school were happy with "the level of representation of women and minorities" on the faculty, according to the Harvard Crimson.
Imagine if Rush Limbaugh said this about the two Johns ticket of Kerry and Edwards in 2004.
Randi Rhodes does what she can to make her presence known in that barren wasteland known as liberal radio. Unfortunately, it usually consists of little more than bloviating inanities. (audio clip after page break)
Claiming that her criticism of Bradlee Dean consisted of "classic opinion and rhetorical hyperbole," MSNBC pundit Rachel Maddow is seeking dismissal of a $50 million defamation lawsuit filed by Dean last year.
Dean, a Christian ministry founder, online radio host and rock drummer, alleged in his lawsuit that Maddow defamed him by falsely claiming he wants gays to be executed. (video and audio clips after page break)
Eyebrow-raiser of a remark from Ed Schultz on his radio show yesterday about Secret Service agents allegedly hiring prostitutes in Colombia just before President Obama's appearance at the Summit of the Americas.
Schultz says he was aware of this type of conduct in the agency and apparently decided it wasn't worth investigating. (audio clip after page break)
There might be hope for libtalker and attorney Mike Papantonio after all.
Papantonio, who co-hosts the weekend "Ring of Fire" radio program with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Sam Seder, was guest hosting on Ed Schultz's radio show on April 12 when he backpedaled on a claim he made about fracking earlier in the month. (audio clips after page break)
North Koreans appear even more prickly about criticism of their dear leadership as American liberals are of theirs.
On her MSNBC show last night, Rachel Maddow was interviewing NBC foreign correspondent Richard Engel live from Pyongyang shortly after a long-range missile launched by the communist regime broke apart and crashed into the sea. (video after page break)
