Ed Schultz responded to Rush Limbaugh’s attack on him today by challenging the right wing talk show host to come on his MSNBC show and debate him about anything. Schultz said, “Your audience hates me. They would love to see you stick it to me, but you won’t do it, because you’re a coward Rush.”
Here is the video:
Schultz said, “Rush, I’ve got a challenge for you, you know why don’t you just come on this program your audience would love it radio or TV and debate me about anything. Let’s how good you are Rush one on one, let’s go buddy, you know be safe as can be heck, MSNBC, we got HD. We got the widescreen. You’ll fit in there fine.”
He went on to call Limbaugh a coward, “Your audience would love it. Your audience hates me. They would love to see you stick it to me, but you won’t do it, because you’re a coward Rush. I’ve always thought that. I’ve always thought that.” Schultz then mentioned that Rush got fired from ESPN, and he challenged Limbaugh in football, golf, waterskiing, hunting, or fishing.
Plus two for Schultz for managing to work in both a weight joke, and the Donovan McNabb incident from the ESPN NFL pregame show. Schultz would love to see this develop into a running feud. Nothing could boost his ratings more than a public spat with Rush Limbaugh. I still don’t know what possessed Limbaugh to go after Ed Schultz. Unless it because Schultz can cut it on television, and Rush can’t.
There is absolutely zero chance of Limbaugh tangling with Schultz. Rush doesn’t debate anyone, because he knows that he would have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Limbaugh knows that his strength rests in sitting his studio, and ruling his kingdom.
He rarely leaves his bubble because with 20 million listeners a week, he doesn’t have to. Schultz was correct. He was dreaming when he challenged Limbaugh, but this back and forth between the two has been fun to listen to. Ed Schultz wins on this one no matter what, because every time Limbaugh talks about him, it helps both Schultz and his MSNBC show.
