Rep. Dan Burton Hearts Scooter But He's Obsessed With Bill Clinton

Hardball-Shuster-Burton On Friday's "Hardball" David Shuster brought in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) to talk about a possible pardon for Scooter Libby and poor Dan Burton just couldn't stick to the topic. It's quite obvious that his obsession with The Clenis hasn't waned since the 1990's and he's still bitter that Clinton wasn't convicted. Wasserman Schultz and Shuster keep hammering Burton, and by the end of the segment he was cornered and marginalized, looking like a complete nincompoop.

There were a lot of great comments on our post from Hardball yesterday, but a few C&L readers were concerned that Shuster's style was too similar to Fox News hosts. These shows help frame public opinion and debate in America and we must have people like David Shuster and Keith Olbermann on the air to keep reality in the public eye and steer the conversation toward the truth. Tucker Carlson's show is putrid and Chris Matthews is all over the place. If you like what you've seen from David Shuster drop a line to MSNBC and tell Dan Abrams you'd like to see Shuster get his own show.

Update: John Amato: Once Burton starts getting challenged by David he immediately calls Shuster a "strong Democrat and a liberal." Shuster laughed him off, but it's a typical card wingnuts like Burton play when the facts don't support their postions.

The comment section should be back up soon.
