David Shuster and the Pimps of Chelsea

I looked forward several months ago to the reports by David Shuster on the Scooter Libby trial. His nightly appearance on Countdown gave a sense of no-nonsense reportage to the sometimes (always) pointless nonsense that permeates Keith Olbermann's valiant attempt to present news with a vaguely Liberal bias. But do not count on Shuster nowadays. He has flipped the Clintons the bird and has been suspended by NBC.

He said that the relatively sudden appearance of Chelsea on the bandstands of the Hillary campaign looked like she was being pimped by her parents. Apparently "pimped" is not as far into to mainstream vocabulary as some, especially Shuster, think it is. Given his quick intelligence and his no-nonsense delivery, Shuster probably picked up on one of Hillary's ploys, like the tear-welled eyes of New Hampshire, and called it for the pimps.

While moving I have missed many Countdown programs and discovered that there is life without. I will abandon Countdown entirely if Shuster is not restored to his job. Jim Lehrer punctuated by Bill Moyers will suffice.
