By Robert Paul Reyes

`On my radio show yesterday I used vile and inappropriate language when talking about talk show host Laura Ingraham,` he said, after explaining that Thomas Roberts would be hosting Wednesday night`s edition of `The Ed Show.`"

Ed Schultz is a gruff bear of a man who is a stalwart warrior for liberal causes. Ed doesn`t mince words, he condemns Republicans for sins like trying to destroy Medicare and unions. Ed is one of my favorite TV political commentators, but I lost a lot of respect for him when he used a vile and misogynist word to describe Laura Ingraham.

Schultz hit the roof (not usual for him) when radio talk show host Laura Ingraham criticized Oabma`s trip to Ireland, where he was seen guzzling a beer. Laura was of the opinion that Obama shouldn`t have been enjoying himself in a foreign country while tornadoes were wreaking havoc in the United States. Ingraham had no such qualms when Republican presidents have sipped wine or slurped beer overseas.

Schultz had every right condemn Ingraham for her hypocrisy, but he had no right to resort to vulgar language. Schultz`s remark wasn`t an innocent slip of the tongue, he twice referred to the conservative talker as a slut.

Ingraham is the female version of Schultz, she is all business and doesn`t suffer fools gladly, especially liberal ones. It`s a bit ironic that Schultz referred to Ingraham as a slut because she doesn`t exude any sex appeal whatsoever.

One day at work my friends and I were discussing the sexual orientation of famous Republicans, and when the name of Ingraham was brought up, almost everyone agreed that she`s a lesbian. Not that there`s anything wrong with being a lesbian, we thought it interesting that so many Republicans who condemn gays and lesbians are in the closet. I however said that Ingraham is probably asexual, she has zero sexual energy.

Schultz has made his apology and been duly punished, Ingraham should accept it, and we should all move on to deal with the intractable problems facing our country.
