Queen Hillary demand’s Shuster’s head. No one tells her to buzz off.
Imagine if a TV host at NBC said, “Yesterday President Bush came out against human cloning. If anyone knows how much trouble twins can get into, it’s President Bush.”
Now imagine that host apologizing and NBC suspending him.
Now imagine the president protesting and saying, “I found the remarks incredibly offensive. Nothing justifies the kind of debasing language that [the TV host] used and no temporary suspension or half-hearted apology is sufficient.”
Now imagine Dana Perino, the White House spokeswoman, saying that the president would never go on NBC again.
In other words: Fire the S-O-B.
Would the press just sit back on its collective can and let George Walker Bush bully NBC like that?
Of course not.
Left and right, we would raise the First Amendment as our banner and march on the White House demanding satisfaction.
But since it is Hillary, the press gives her a pass on throwing her weight around as if she were some sort of queen.
The imperial candidacy...
