MSNBC’s Ed Schultz On MA Election: “I’d Cheat To Keep These Bastards Out”

On radio’s The Ed Schultz Show yesterday, the MSNBC host seemed to be feeling the heat of the impending Massachusetts election to fill the Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy. Tuesday’s tight race — between Democract and state attorney general Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown — threatens a Senate seat that has belonged to a Democrat for over half a century. It clearly has Schultz feeling a bit antsy, as he spoke on his Friday show. “If I lived in Massachusetts, I’d try to vote ten times,” Schultz said.

Because of the unpredictable nature of special elections, usually plagued by low turnout, the results remain hard to predict. Schultz’s solution? Cheat!

“Yeah that’s right, I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. Because that’s exactly what they are,” he said. A Limbaugh-esque comment if there ever was one — and imagine the outrage should a top conservative have made a similar claim, joke or not.
