Ed Schultz managed to find the one black man in America willing to defend Rush Limbaugh's racist remarks about James Clyburn... former Dick Cheney aide Ron Christie. Ed... Ed... Ed... PLEASE STOP having this man as a guest on your show. He's obnoxious, truly obnoxious.

Christie claimed that his buddy Rush Limbaugh was taken out of context and then he attacked President Obama for his remark that Republicans should sit in the back of the car, which the talking heads at Fox have been hammering on for weeks as being racist. He's probably lucky Joe Madison wasn't sitting in the same room as he was because Joe looked like he wanted to slug him.

Here's what Christie was defending from our friends at Media Matters.

Jon Stewart had a slightly different take than Ron Christie and the Fox yappers on President Obama's remarks. From the Nov. 1st edition of The Daily Show. Relative portion starts at just past the three minute mark.
