Talk show host Ed Schultz talks about not running for US Senate, brining his TV show to Minnesota for the Bachmann/Palin rally and telling White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that he is “full of shit”.
I want all of you to know that I’m not running for the United States Senate. But I also want you to know that if I did,I’d kick their ass. Because that’s what it’s about.
I understand that Michele Bachmann has got Sarah Palin coming in on April seventh. So if all of you here if all of you here will make a commitment to me tonight that if I bring my TV show right across the street from where they’re doing their rally you’ll all show up. Is that a deal?Okay we’ll do it.
I know this this of those being recorded but I wasn’t told it was off the record but Mister Gibbs I had quite a conversation off the air the other night and I’m going to tell you I told him he was full of shit, is what I told him. I mean I did. and then he gave me that Dick Cheney F bomb the same way Senator Leahy got it on the senate floor. So I told Robert Gibbs, I said and I’m sorry you’re swearing at me but, you know I’m just trying to help you out. I’m telling you you’re losing your base.
Do you understand that you’re losing your base?
And that the American people they don’t want public option, the American people want single payer!
