Schultz Slams Fiorina's Liquor Shot—How About Hillary's?

When is it OK for a politician to slam a shot to show she's a regular gal? Easy: when she's a Dem.  If she's a Republican?  Well, that's a shot of entirely different sort. She's a wasted drunk.

Just ask Ed Schultz.  On his show this evening, the MSNBCer took Carly Fiorina to task for taking a shot of tequila on the campaign trail.  Schultz slammed the California Republican senatorial candidate as "drunken" and "wasted."

Does Ed remember when during the 2008 primary campaign Hillary, seeking to show she was a woman [of the bitter-clinging] people, threw one back in an Indiana bar? Apparently not.

View the video and consider Schultz's egregious double standard.
