Just in case you needed any more evidence to prove that Ed Schultz is a hack who will pretty much say whatever he’s told to say, consider this recent ad in which Schultz shills for gold, a product usually pushed by the likes of Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
Normally Schultz is a reliable mouthpiece for President Obama, so to hear him open his mouth to sell gold by suggesting that all might not be hunky dory in the American economy is surprising.
But these are tough times for Schultz. He’s been banished to the wastelands of weekend cable news programming, and his radio show seems to be in decline too.
So perhaps it’s fitting that he’d be talking about “lifeboats.” His career certainly needs one.
