Noel Sheppard Endorses Ted Nugent Smearing People As 'Subhuman'
Topic: NewsBusters

We've documented how NewsBusters associate editor Noel Sheppard cares about political civility only when liberals are the ones who aren't being civil -- conservatives are allowed to be as incivil as they want to be.

He's at it again in a March 19 post, approvingly quoting Ted Nugent calling Michael Moore and Piers Morgan "subhuman punks" for for expressing their constitutionally protected opinions gun rights, even agreeing with Nugent that Moore's remarks in particular 'brings into question his humanity."

Sheppard also reiterated his one-man good cop/bad cop routine regarding Jay Leno's monologue in a March 20 post, complaining that he made a Dick Cheney joke:

Will Dick Cheney is evil jokes ever go out of style?


Now in fairness to Leno, he has been quite an equal opportunity offender in his monologues in recent months.

As NewsBusters readers are well aware, Leno's even been taking shots at President Obama.

My beef here is more with the sophomoric, almost archaic nature of the joke.

Cheney is too evil to be Satan? Isn't that political satire's penultimate "Been there, done that?"

Sheppard is being disingenuous -- he hates it when Leno jokes about a conservative.
