Tucker Carlson handed ass, pink slip
Well, that didn’t take long. Though it got buried under Eliot Spitzer’s wandering libido, MSNBC cancelled Tucker Carlson’s show, Tucker, yesterday. It’s unclear whether it had anything to do with his abysmal performance last Friday (see below) during which Tucker was handed his ass by a reporter from The Scotsman for defending the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy that protects established figures in the U.S. from genuine journalistic interrogation and accountability.
All of which affords an opportunity to replay the ultimate whuppin’ laid on Carlson by Jon Stewart on Carlson’s previous show, the lamentable Crossfire. Enjoy.
