Martin Bashir: Sorry for Saying Sarah Palin Should Eat Poop!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Last week, Sarah Palin compared the national debt to slavery, saying both are examples of one being "beholden to a foreign master."

It wasn't the ex-governor's finest hour.

But this controversial statement was quickly overshadowed by Martin Bashir's critique of Palin, as the MSNBC analyst referred to the former Vice Presidential candidate as a "world class idiot" and added that someone should shove feces in her mouth.

On air, Bashir recounted an excerpt from an 18th century plantation owner that mentioned how the man used to deal with unruly slaves, specifically one named Hector who the owner "flogged and "pickled" and then put "shit in his mouth."

Bashir then said Palin made an "outstanding candidate" for this same punishment.

Yeah. Safe to say an apology from the reporter was called for.

"I wanted to take this opportunity to say sorry to Mrs. Palin and to also offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family, her supporters, our viewers, and anyone who may have heard what I said," the MSNBC host said at the outset of his program yesterday.

"My words were wholly unacceptable. They were neither accurate, nor fair. They were unworthy of anyone who would claim to have an interest in politics.

"And they have brought shame upon my friends and colleagues at this network, none of whom were responsible for the things that I said, and and at a place where we try every day to elevate political discourse and to focus on issues that matter to all of us."

Palin, meanwhile, is awaiting an apology from Levi Johnston, who she believes to be a deadbeat dad to her grandson.

It is my understanding that Bashir has really quirky sexual tastes. What he truly meant is that is how he, personally gets his rocks off; by defecating into the mouths of women. It was unfortunate he became so upset he let his secret desires slip out, and now will become infamous as what the guy really dreams of at night is being with the former of Alaska. This is a well known insider fact about Bashir, kept quiet for years. He is a sexually sick man, and should be in treatment. It is also known he gets off too, with men defecating in his mouth. Cannot believe he is on TV

The Celebs need to be thinking about that useless president they voted for. This guy started his 2nd term a year ago and should be impeached for all his lies. Just like a sorry ass liberal. These weak ass apologies started with Obamas presidency. Let me do WHATEVER and if I get called out- I can always apologize later. Weak people.
