Pimped Out of Face Time

I met David Shuster during a few stops he made in the metro before the Iowa Caucuses. He spends much of his time contributing to Chris Matthews' show on MSNBC and also appears on other shows, as well. Seemed like a pretty good guy. But he's obviously not having a good weekend.

Shuster, while filling in on Tucker Carlson's show on MSNBC, called it "unseemly" the way Chelsea Clinton is calling superdelegates across the country, urging them to support her mom. Shuster wondered aloud whether the campaign is "pimping out" Chelsea. Clinton's campaign was furious and apparently threatened to pull Senator Clinton out of MSNBC's debate. Shuster apologized on the air twice and got suspended.

Is this going too far? Here's the clip.

Come on. Aren't the Clintons going too far here? I think younger people aren't nearly as offended. Even so, Shuster apologized two times. Isn't that enough? Although, if anyone knows what pimping out means, it would be the Clintons!!!!
