"MSNBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin has been suspended for a comment he made about President Barack Obama on the show “Morning Joe.”

On the program, Halperin called Obama “kind of a dick.” He later apologized for the remark.

MSNBC issued a statement, saying, “Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers. We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst.”"

Said Obama was Cheney-esque?

If that's all he said, I think they are over reacting.

But whatever, I don't care about a commentator.

From Wikipedia:

The fact MSNBC would hire this guy in the first place speaks to their integrity.

I love that--what exactly were his distortions central to, then? Were they just for fun?

Frankly, way too much is made of these shows, and of the people who regularly spout off on the shows.

I just thought it was kind of funny. Up here in Maine we got ourselves a gov-na that told Obama to "kiss his ass", or something to that effect. Its all just fun and games when the name callin a-starts up.
