Schultz started Friday's The Ed Show playing clips of Bill O'Reilly, Karl Rove, and Rush Limbaugh criticizing the hiring of Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman. The liberal MSNBC host wondered why conservatives would not just congratulate the Comedy Central host and move on. He then showed a screen grab of TruthRevolt Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro's latest piece: Stephen Colbert's Vile Political Blackface.
I'm amused by it! Republicans don't have anything better to do but to complain about Stephen Colbert. They're outta material. Right-wing blogger Ben Shapiro, here he is, he starts it out! Compared Colbert's political commentary to black face.
Schultz then welcomed frequent guests John Fugelsang and The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead to spend an entire segment bashing Republicans for being unfunny. All three speculated that if conservatives are really "afraid" of Colbert and wanted to attempt something funny then Rush Limbaugh should donate money to creating a show himself.
Lizz Winstead then went into a rant about how she thinks Republicans do not like comedy or sexual relationships.
Republicans and these pundits want to be the enemies of joy. They're this way about comedy, they're this way about people having like really nice healthy sexual relationships. Everything they purport makes it sound like they are literally living hell on earth and that is what they're trying to sell the American people.
Schultz wondered why the Right did not have a funny person like Lizz Winstead on their side. Before she could answer, Fugelsang said he thought Glenn Beck and Dennis Miller were talented and funny but he wished they would go after both sides and not defend Republicans so staunchly.
