Ed Schultz lecturing anyone else to be less bellicose -- what a hoot!

The easily angered, perpetually irritated MSNBC host is no fan of Republicans, but one in particular drew his ire this week -- Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who kicked off his campaign for president on Monday.

Liberals are perennially keen on leniency in sentencing, except of course when it comes to political opponents guilty of nothing more than thought crime. Old habits like that are hard to shake.

The news that former Florida governor and presumptive GOP candidate for president Jeb Bush checked off "Hispanic" on a voter registration form provides an example of this perverse tendency on the left.

Though he's best known as a leading and fearless voice among conservatives, Rush Limbaugh is also a tech aficionado who keeps his finger on the pulse of what's coming next.

With the Apple Watch due out this month, Limbaugh on his radio show today said he's "not hot to trot for it" yet but sees possibilities for the gizmo that its creators may have missed.

Choosing the wrong word, Mark Twain once observed, can mean the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

Union leader Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America, appeared on Ed Schultz's podcast this past Friday and made decidedly unfortunate use of the word "unfortunately."

It was stunning and simultaneously not surprising to learn this week of a curiously timed legal decision leading to our government releasing previously classified details of Israel's nuclear program, which the Jewish state has never publicly acknowledged.

If news of this disclosure left you furious at still another example of the Obama administration's bad-faith dealings with our only genuine ally in the Middle East, radio host Mark Levin's indignation in response is sure to resonate.

NPR's Scott Horsley carried water for the Obama administration on Thursday's All Things Considered as he covered the President's green energy executive order. All of Horsley's soundbites during the segment came from the Democratic chief executive and two boosters of his latest environmental policy. True to form, the slanted NPR correspondent failed to include any criticism of the order in his report.

It's among the most annoying phrases in the lexicon and a worthy target for dissection. Rush Limbaugh took a chainsaw to it today and the results weren't pretty.

In the aftermath of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's allegedly stunning re-election victory, attention has predictably turned to widespread concern over the so-called "Middle East peace process."

Never one to shy from controversy, Rush Limbaugh pointed out what many others consider impolitic to state aloud -- that the racist chant led by University of Oklahoma frat brothers and captured on a video that went viral could be mistaken for a rap tune.

University officials quickly expelled the students, shuttered their fraternity and continue their investigation while the incident has triggered wide debate as much about free speech as racism.

Prompted by a listener's call, Rush Limbaugh made what initially sounds exceedingly unlikely come across instead as still unlikely but not beyond the realm of possibility.

The listener's question -- even though the 22nd Amendment prevents President Obama from seeking a third term, what if he decided to remain in office after January 2017?

In the immortal words of the drill sergeant played by Warren Oates in "Stripes" -- lighten up, Francis.

Back in January when House Speaker John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress and warn the world of the peril from Iran building nuclear weaponry, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Boehner breached diplomatic protocol by not first getting approval from President Obama.

On Wednesday's All Things Considered, NPR's Ari Shapiro spotlighted Cage, a British organization that ran to the defense of "Jihadi John," the ISIS member who infamously beheaded several hostages on video. Shaprio slanted toward Cage by playing four soundbites from two talking heads from the organization, as well as a clip from the terrorist himself, who has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi.

Might there be more to the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton's dubious email practices while Secretary of State than we're being led to believe? Rush Limbaugh thinks so and he's not alone.

Limbaugh told his radio listeners yesterday that it is most curious that media outlets previously counted on as Greek choruses of praise for Clinton are going after her with a vengeance.
