Ed Schultz Stumbles Into Candor, Reveals Actual Reason for Lack of GOP Guests

Ed Schultz, liberal radio host and MSNBC action hero, has a pronounced aversion to Republicans/conservatives/right wingers coming on his cable show.

Why? Depends on when Schultz explains the reason.

Here he was on his radio show this past Monday (audio) --

You do not see Republican senators on "The Ed Show" on MSNBC. I don't want 'em! I don't want 'em and I'm getting sick of righties on my show anyway. I'm getting sick, I mean, we might have 2011, there might not be any freakin' righties. I'm sick of 'em!

All of a day later, again on his radio show, Schultz let slip the actual reason for his dearth of conservative guests. Turns out that Schultz has sought their company, but, go figure, they're disinclined (audio) --

Of course, I don't put right-wing people on that are of any significance. (laughs) Um, 'cause they won't come on the program. And I don't want to talk to 'em anyway.

Schultz discovering his lack of interest in "right-wing people" -- after they turn down his invitations. Those guests were probably sour anyway.
