So that happened! Or will happen? It’s unclear whether the actual ripping out and kicking and eating of Dick Cheney’s heart has actually been scheduled, but crazy radio host Ed Schultz is pushing hard to get it on the calendar.
From the always-reliable-and-never-sensationalistic Politico:
Liberal talk show host Ed Schultz would like to take the heart of former Vice President Dick Cheney —who is recovering from his fifth heart attack — and “rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.”
On his radio show Wednesday, Schultz mocked conservatives who have attacked him for going after the health of the former vice president.
“You’re damn right, Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football,” Schultz said in remarks recorded by the media blog Radio Equalizer. “We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.”
Ah, so an apology is in order from us; Ed Schultz did not in fact say he would eat Dick Cheney’s heart. He only plans to kick it around, and then return it when he’s done…because it’s a political football. Of course, it raises the questions: when was the last time Ed Schultz watched football? We have a forward pass now! If anything, if Dick Cheney’s heart were a “political football,” it should be thrown around, not kicked.
Of course none of this is a big deal because it’s SATIRE, right!? No one needs to apologize to Trig Palin.
