Mama Bear Clinton Out for Shuster Blood


OK, David Shuster's "pimped out" comment, if taken literally, was out of line.

And a temporary suspension and an apology are certainly appropriate.

But c'mon.

Chelsea Clinton is not 13 anymore. She's a couple weeks shy of her 28th birthday. She's has a masters from Oxford and has a fat career at a hedge fund.

Nobody needs to throw this young woman a pity party. Sure. She was picked on cruelly as a child growing up in the public eye. But she's her own woman now. Her role on the campaign trail is certainly open for debate.

OK. Schuster did so tastelessly. But does Chelsea really need mama bear coming to her rescue, demanding that an [otherwise] excellent journalist be fired?

Gimme a break.

[Note: I tried to post Shuster's apology video and it sent the site all screwy. I'm having to repost this again, and we unfortunately lost 5 comments. Sorry.]
