That Second-String Dude on MSNBC
Good times at the MSNBC studio on Teh Mall @ 7th Street this evening. That guy David Shuster totes made this pose just as a bunch of people yelled at him, "Where's Rachel?!?" and this one random guy muttered, "Fuck him, he's not Keith." Then when some people decided that they wanted a picture with him anyway, he said he had to hurry up "because my wife is about to kill me."
So, in this instance, because David Shuster is neither Rachel Maddow nor Keith Olbermann, he evidently is hated by some, quite possibly including his own wife, and for perhaps the very same reason, who knows (or who, and let's be honest, gives a shit). But this nonetheless is unfortunate, as I assume this particular transitive property (or whatever) is simply beyond his control. But he should take heart that, at the very least, he is not Ann Curry's teleprompter.
