MSNBC's Shuster Suspended for Clinton "Pimped Out" Remark

Temporarily suspended from all NBC news broadcasts except to say he's sorry.

In a conference call with reporters, Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson on Friday excoriated MSNBC's David Shuster for suggesting the Clinton campaign had "pimped out" 27-year old Chelsea by having her place phone calls to Democratic Party superdelegates on her mother's behalf. Wolfson called the comment "beneath contempt" and disgusting.

Oh come on Howard, it wasn't that disgusting.

It was dumb. I'll give you that. And the suspension made me giggle.
