Covering His Bases…

Last week MRC Presdient Brent Bozell went rogue; instead of surfing the Waimea-like “Al Sharpton” conservative tidal wave, Bozell opted to go up the beach, so to speak, and surf the Freddieland-like “Ed Schultz” wave. And Bozell caught a bit of conservative flak for being off the path and going his own way. Well, today Bozell returned to “Waimea” and Sharpton

Dear Mr. Griffin,

Last week, in my open letter to you I called for Ed Schultz’s termination. I also called for you to resign as President of MSNBC because you hired Ed Schultz. Today, I have yet another reason you should step down – one which some might argue is even more compelling than Schultz. His name is Al Sharpton.

Coolness note: Anybody who understood those surfing allusions gets mega bonus points…

  1. Life’s a beach.

  2. Grandpa Dave Says:

    I went to Waimea once just to see the waves. When I got there the sea was flat. (Had to look up Freddyland.)

  3. No points for you…

    Spud,

    As a conservative, I see an infinate amount of resons why Schultz, Sharpton and everyone else in that cesspool should be fired. Maybe Bozell can think for himself? and isn’t necessarily “going off the reservation”?

  5. 17 years in Florida and was able to avoid any knowledge of surfing, other than a vague notion of where Ronjon’s was located.

  6. And didn’t even spell it right.

  7. I’m pointless.

  8. Why should anyone care what Brent Bozell says about anything? His claim to fame is — wait he has no claim to fame. He’s just another right wing talker with a blog with the word media the title.

    If he has any relevance at all then we’ll know when Billo calls him out for wanting Ed and Al fired and I can’t see him bothering to bring it up..

    Heck I don’t think even Ed or Al have bothered to respond to this bozo and they respond to everybody.

    I doubt this guy can swim let alone surf.

  9. I think Bozell’s father was significant in the conservative movement, and Brent got in on his name. Which is to say I agree with Fritz.

    Whether or not you think Bozell is a “bozo” (I guess cuz it sounds like his name?) or whether you think he’s successful because his father was somebody, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s a pretty powerful and successful force. The MRC is an important entity which does a lot of good work. Bozell is wrong in his wanting Sharpton & Schultz fired because that’s not the way conservatives operate. But, he’s right on a lot of other stuff.

  11. LS your comment begs a lot of questions.

    Some are:

    “the fact that he’s a pretty powerful and successful force.”

    ^^ Really! Why or how?

    “The MRC is an important entity which does a lot of good work.”

    ^^ Like what?

    “that’s not the way conservatives operate.”

    ^^ Just how do conservatives operate anyway?

    “he’s right on a lot of other stuff”.

    ^^ Such as?

  12. lonestar77 Says:

    The MRC isn’t a crackerjack operation. Everybody in D.C. knows who Bozell is.

    The’ve been at the forefront of exposing the hypocrisy and bias of the MSM.

    Conservatives don’t traditionally call for people to get fired. They don’t try to shut down opposing voices.

  13. “Bozell is wrong in his wanting Sharpton & Schultz fired because that’s not the way conservatives operate. But, he’s right on a lot of other stuff.”

    I disagree on two counts…

    1) Sharpton and especially Schultz should be dropped; Sharpton because of who he is and what he’s done, Schultz because of his lack of a proper internal barometer. There is room for “hot talk” in cable news primetime but there is a line that people shouldn’t cross and Schultz has crossed it several times.

    2) Of course it’s how conservatives operate, though not all. It’s how liberals operate too, though not all. Nobody’s hands are clean.

  14. lonestar77 Says:

    I’m not necessarily saying whether or not he should be fired but I just don’t think conservatives should be out there acting like liberals and calling sponsors, etc.

  15. lonestar77 Says:

    ^ Basically, if they want to fire him, fine. If they don’t, fine. I, and most other conservatives don’t care. We’re not going to track down the CEO of whatever company runs ads on MSNBC and throw eggs at their front door until they agree to stop running ads on MSNBC.

  16. I think, LS, that conservatives don’t mount the huge centrally coordinated and well financed boycott campaigns aimed at advertisers as liberals do.

    I challenge anyone to make a valid comparison between any conservative boycott campaign to the Rush and Beck boycott campaigns.
