Pot calling the kettle clueless . . .
On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed Schultz twice called newly-elected Republican congressman Allen West "ignorant." For good measure, Schultz said West "didn't have a clue."
Schultz was incensed that West had observed that Washington, DC--home of big government--was relatively immune to the economic woes that have befallen the rest of the country. View video after the jump.
By interesting coincidence, I had occasion to overfly Leesburg, VA in the DC suburbs this past weekend, and for the first time saw what McMansions look like [see photo I snapped after break]. Now why would Loudoun County, Virginia have the highest per-capita income in the country? Steel mills?
Watch Schultz slur a rising Republican star.
ED SCHULTZ: We saved a really turkey for you, just before Thanksgiving. The bigoted, Islamophobic, Congressman-elect Allen West of Florida. This guy's got a history of offensive, ignorant statements. Last Sunday on Meet The Press, well, once again showed us he doesn't have a clue what the heck he's talking about . . . Saying that Washington, DC is immune to lay-offs and foreclosures is ignorant psycho-talk.
