(Special) Ed Schultz to radio show caller: You’re an a**hole

No wonder MSNBC moved Ed Schultz from his primetime slot to Siberia. Big Ed, it seems, has an anger management problem.

In a recent show, he tells his listeners (listener?) after a particularly stressful exchange with a caller:

I just lost it on that guy. I can take the conversation; I’m not going to take the personal insults. I hope that that didn’t go out. Did we catch that one? I need some direction. Did we catch that one? Yes or no?

Sorry, Ed, that’s a big no … and a bigger no-no. In the audio capture below, Schultz uses the granddaddy of all curse words in dressing the man down, and calls him a few choice names, to boot. (Warning: Extreme foul language.)
