The only thing worse than Populist nonsense is pseudo-Populist nonsense. Enter Ed Schultz. Tonight on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, the Left’s least-unsuccessful talk show host (none can be called successes) took aim at Newt Gingrich in his “Psycho Talk” episode. (There’s truth in advertising.) Channeling Rush Limbaugh, if Limbaugh had one-half of his charisma and one-quarter of his IQ, Schultz showed common-man grit by repeatedly calling Gingrich “The Newtster.” Schultz called the former Speaker a psycho for stating the twin facts that 260 million Americans have health insurance, and “71 percent of Americans are relatively satisfied with” it.

The Edster shot back: “Alright, a study out of Harvard showed that in 2007, 78 percent of people who had filed for bankruptcy because of medical debt had obtained and currently held health insurance.” This is true, and it undermines his contention that universal, taxpayer-funded health insurance would act as a panacea for all the nation’s troubles. If high health care costs, regardless of insurance coverage, are the problem, the answer must be to bring costs down. One way to accomplish this is to increase the number of health care providers, and to increase the incentives for them to compete by offering lower prices and better services. To entice more health care workers into the field, the administration would have to limit frivolous lawsuits, cut bureaucratic demands on their performance, and eliminate the rationing that acts as a disincentive to doctors remaining in the profession.

Instead, Ed just complained that Newt was wrong, because new insurance is “too damned expensive.” And Newt knows this and he doesn’t care! “He only worries about fear-mongering, pushing the Republican line.”

This is the same Ed Schultz who was purchased as a subsidiary of the Democratic Party and began his career with $800,000 raised by Senate Democrats to spread their propaganda, yes?
