Noel Sheppard got the vapors when Mark Shields said that Mitt Romney "has more positions than the Kama Sutra," huffing in a Sept. 3 NewsBusters post, "For those conceivably unaware, the Kama Sutra is a roughly two thousand year old Hindu guide to sexual positions. As Krauthammer scoffed, this seems hardly appropriate for a political talk show." Sheppard went on to wonder if this was "a little too off-color a comment ... or am I getting prudish in my old age?"
But Sheppard apparently has no problem with off-color language when it's directed at his political enemies. As we noted, it was just a couple weeks ago, in an Aug. 16 post, that Sheppard too delight in Rush Limbaugh's insult wondering "which NBC personality" might be found in President Obama's next colonoscopy.
And it was just two days earlier that Sheppard repeated his delight at Limbaugh's scatology, chortling that Limbaugh said that "If they ever do a colonoscopy on Obama, they're gonna find Richard Wolffe's head there." Sheppard heartily endorsed this insult: "At the moment, the winner appears to be Wolffe, but with the number of Obama-loving sycophants out there, this can change on an hourly basis."
Whose colon is Sheppard camping out in that he is allowed to risk the Media Research Center's501(c)3 statuse that he is permitted to engage in such partisan insults that clearly violate the MRC's "media criticism" mandate?
