How low can they go?
Update: MSNBC replayed the event at 9:00 Pacific time. They edited out the one line from West about President Bush, displaying a full-screen logo for about five seconds. They still played his rant up to that point.
And a good thought from Hugh Hewitt on the subject, to wrap it up:
I understand that an entertainer on the NBC special said some incredibly distasteful stuff about President Bush. No doubt a lot of folks will be pretty upset. I am taking my cue from the president, who spent the day in the company of a lot of folks who seem to have spent the last 48 hours doing nothing but blasting him in an attempt to escape fallout. President Bush said nothing about his critics, but kept the focus on the victims. W is in the business of getting the relief organized and saving lives. He isn’t taking political shots, and I doubt he’s going to, no matter how great the provocation. He’s a good man and a great president, and his example should instruct his supporters to keep the focus on Americans in desperate need of help and hope.
