Ed Schultz, host of "The Ed Show" on MSNBC, loves taking shots at conservative fireband Rush Limbaugh. Schultz often refers to Limbaugh as "the drugster" (in reference to his previous Oxycontin addiction) and pokes fun at the radio host's weight (Schultz, it should be noted, is not a slim man, at least as he appears on TV).
However, tonight Schultz threw down the gauntlet after Limbaugh made fun of him on his radio show for comments Schultz made regarding Sonia Sotomayor. Limbaugh also repeatedly referred to Schultz as a "horse."
The MSNBC host challenged Limabaugh to a debate about "anything" on either radio or TV. However, Schultz isn't optimistic about Limbaugh accepting the challenge: "But you won't do it. Cause you're a coward, Rush. I've always thought that."
WATCH: (H/t D.J.)
Rush, I got a challenge for you. Why don't you just come on this program? Come on, buddy, you're audience would love it. Radio or TV, and debate me about anything. Let's see how good you are, Rush, one-on-one, let's go buddy. You know, be safe as can be. Heck, MSNBC, we got HD, we got the wide screen: you'll fit in there just fine... Hell I'm doing you a favor. I'm giving you ratings. I'm promoting you right here, Rush, c'mon let's get after it. Your audience would love it. Your audience hates me. Your audience would love to see you just stick it to me. But you won't do it. Cause you're a coward, Rush. I've always thought that. Always thought that.
