On his radio show Wednesday, Schultz mocked conservatives who have attacked him for going after the health of the former vice president.
“You’re damn right, Dick Cheney's heart's a political football,” Schultz said in remarks recorded by the media blog Radio Equalizer. “We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him."
Schultz, host of “The Ed Show” on MSNBC, said that he was glad Cheney “didn’t tip over” because “he is the new poster child for health care in this country.”
“How come Dick Cheney’s health care isn't being dropped?” Schultz asked. “Do you realize that if you had five heart attacks, hell, you wouldn't get past two heart attacks and they’d dump you.”
“But because you're a war criminal and because you are on the take from Halliburton ... you can get the best health care on the face of the earth,” Schultz said.
Ed Shultz you are disgrace to humanity. Dick Cheney is a great American with more moral fiber and courage in his little finger than you have in your whole body.
For you to besmirch and disrespect a man with serious heart problems, you are a mere shell of a human being.
Liberty Dispatch and its supporters wish the best for Vice President Cheney and you should know you are appreciated and respected.
