Ed Schultz: I could draw 300,000 people to the Mall like Beck did

posted at 9:05 pm on August 31, 2010 by Allahpundit

Remember, this is the same guy who allegedly threw a nuclear tantrum a few weeks ago because he wasn’t big enough shakes to make it into an MSNBC promo. And yet … isn’t he right about the unions? Surely, my friends, there are enough Obama-crony labor leaders in America to order 300,000 long-suffering dues-payers to the Mall to hear Ed Schultz unleash the voices in his head. If the Secretary of Education is willing to stoop to something like that, why wouldn’t Richard Trumka? Imagine the magnificent sea of purple t-shirts in front of the Washington Monument. Edstock — sponsored by SEIU.

The best part here? The self-reassuring, ever so slightly frantic repetition of “I know I could!” Exit question: Why doesn’t he do it then? Click the image to listen.

That screen cap makes him look like the guy that everyone runs away from at the State Fair. Creepy Clownish.

Key West Reader on August 31, 2010 at 9:07 PM

Maybe he could draw 300,000 flies.

NoNails on August 31, 2010 at 9:08 PM

Does this guy really believe that by trying to be Mr. Anger and Mr. Shocker is going to gain him an audience?

Ed, I know you read HA (esp. when the thread is about you) but, please lay off the alcohol and kiddie pron.

carbon_footprint on August 31, 2010 at 9:08 PM

In fact, he might have been featured on Beach Creeps.

Oh dear. That’s just sad.

He can hardly get 300K people to tune in to his TV show, let alone get on a bus to go see him.

Voluntarily?

Ya know, it wasn’t that long ago when you had to actually go to the Circus to see people like Ed Schultz and Keith Olberman??

BigWyo on August 31, 2010 at 9:09 PM

“Exit question: Why doesn’t he do it then? Click the image to listen.”

Because it cost money and he doesn’t have the money. He doesn’t have the connections to the money. He doesn’t have the support to get people to donate the money.

And the unions won’t give him a dime because they need every last red cent to keep “Likely Dems” in office.

Hey Ed, are you the same horse that can talk?

Rovin on August 31, 2010 at 9:12 PM

He should start out in a smaller venue. Maybe the back seat of a Toyota Corolla.

Uh…according to Ed, he doesn’t have the ‘budget’. Cuz, you know, you have to pay them to show up…like Glenn did…or something. Yeah, that’s it…pay them $1000 per head and he’ll draw millions.

FOXNEWS SHEP 1,858,000
FOXNEWS GRETA 1,856,000
MSNBC OLBERMANN 1,078,000

MSNBC SHULTZ 699,000

He likes crack.

Gob on August 31, 2010 at 9:13 PM

Shultz couldn’t draw three hundred thousand people no matter how big his box of crayons.

Here’s an idea. Why not get those million men from the million man march to show up?

Guardian on August 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

The only way Ed Schultz would attract 300,000 is if he were part of a dunking tank attraction in a sideshow.

hepcat on August 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

Surely, my friends, there are enough Obama-crony labor leaders in America to order 300,000 long-suffering dues-payers to the Mall to hear Ed Schultz unleash the voices in his head.

Heh.

All kidding aside, there aren’t 300,000 people in America who can even answer the question “who is Ed Schultz?”, much less drive to D.C. to watch him melt down and curse at MSNBC interns.

False bravado aside, surely this fat dipshit knows that, right?

Jaibones on August 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

I wouldn’t cross the street to see the guy. I was very happy to attend the rally Saturday. It was an awesome and inspiring event.

TXMomof3 on August 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

Dude is a third rate Obermann. Painful.

Angry Dumbo on August 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

If he has the union pay SEIU members to come does that count as voluntary? /

CWforFreedom on August 31, 2010 at 9:19 PM

Riiiiight and I have a bridge for sale, cheap. Any takers?

30 pcs of silver on August 31, 2010 at 9:19 PM

Yeah, I could see him drawing that many if the rent-a-mob labor forces were forced to all come. But that’s the only way. Which is the difference between the two sides, and always is. The right does things because they are individually motivated, the left it’s some rental mob that is ordered to protest by union thugs.

But,God, that would be fun. Think of the crazy that would be on display.

PS he was at the Sharpton rally that drew all of 3000, so really how big a draw is he?

lizzie beth on August 31, 2010 at 9:19 PM

Why doesn’t he do it then?

Cause’ he’s a moron.

Surely, my friends, there are enough Obama-crony labor leaders in America to order 300,000 long-suffering dues-payers to the Mall

That’s too much like work.

BacaDog on August 31, 2010 at 9:20 PM

Someone has said that ” Liberalism is a mental disorder”
This guy confirms it. It seems that MSNBC is hiring the hosts of their shows right out of the mental hospitals. Chris Matthews,Keith Olberman, Ed Schultz all appear to be in need of mental treatment.

No thanks. I’ve seen enough of this loon. He’s a one-man freak show. Delusional and pathetic. Hope the suits at MSNBC get some help for him — quickly.

Then do it. Put your money where you mouth is.

The Notorious G.O.P on August 31, 2010 at 9:21 PM

The point is these people came willingly and made individual decisions to do so. No Union heads were required to collect bodies and dump them on the mall you ass-hat.

And yet … isn’t he right about the unions?

So why weren’t they there last year in support of ObamaCare, to offset all the Dems imploding in town hall meetings?

If Shultz allowed everyone that showed up the right to punch him in his fat face, he would draw millions of people.

I think he could do it. Of course, most of them would be invisible…

If offered to let a herd of bull elephants work their will on him…while on fire and swinging from a trapeze…he couldn’t pull a crowd of 5,000 in DC.

For one thing…it’s been done…

Ragspierre on August 31, 2010 at 9:29 PM

Lets run the numbers. Monday Glen Beck had 2.6 million viewers, Ed Schultz had 699,000. If Beck could pull in 300,000 people from a pool that large, Ed Schultz would pull in less that 81,000. Yeah go ahead and do it.

Tommy_G on August 31, 2010 at 9:30 PM

faraway on August 31, 2010 at 9:31 PM

So, he could “order” all the unions to produce more than 300k…?

Sure, no problem..

Hey Eddie..

How about if you try to get them to come volunteerily?

Think ya could then?

Huh?

Huh?

Loser, and mega tool

Markvike on August 31, 2010 at 9:31 PM

Not to be crass, but you just know this guy has skidmarks as long and as wide as the reflecting pool at the Washington Monument.

carbon_footprint on August 31, 2010 at 9:32 PM

I don’t know why people are so afraid of Beck…he calls himself a rodeo clown. He’s a talk radio celebrity. People listen to him. He draws crowds. Get over it.

scalleywag on August 31, 2010 at 9:33 PM

Only if you paid ‘em Sgt. Shultz…A LOT AND IN CASH, JACKASS!

SuperCool on August 31, 2010 at 9:33 PM

Ed Shultz is MSNBC’s rodeo clown, only achieve his zen by imagining a man with that facial expression running through a crowded room of people waving a sharp pickaxe.

gary4205 on August 31, 2010 at 9:37 PM

Al Shaprton only got 3,000

And that with the Secutary of Education breaking the Hatch Act by using Government Computers to send a message to her 4,000 employees urging them to go which used government time to read. Clear violation of the Hatch Act.

Ed Schultz would be lucky to get 6,000. After all the Union can only afford to buy so many protesters.

rayra on August 31, 2010 at 9:42 PM

True Story:

Remember MSNBC’s David Shuster? Before his hour long show went under, he was on Twitter promising balloon and t-shirt giveaways for people who tuned into his show. Ed couldn’t even get MSNBC to fund a pack of 20 balloons or print one t-shirt for him. “If I had the budget” is right, huh, Ed.

I’d say 300,000 easy. Probably twice that. If he gave away free I-Pods. Allah would show up anyway.

Barack Obama himself couldn’t draw 300,000 now.

WAIT!!! Did a member of the lunatic Left admit that Beck drew more than 87k? Now that’s progressive…

Gohawgs on August 31, 2010 at 9:54 PM

Sure you could Eddie. Keep saying it. I’m sure you’ll at least get your mommy to believe it.

Only way you’d get it done would be to PAY people to show up.

Or haven’t you looked at your viewer numbers lately?

GarandFan on August 31, 2010 at 9:55 PM

How old is Ed Shultz? MSNBC isn’t exactly hiring Brad Pitt types to? What is it that Ed does besides go bat sh1t crazy? Anyway he’s no George Clooney, Good Night, and Good Luck.
