Martin Bashir, who spews all kinds of profane, hate-filled commentary without so much as a slap on the wrist, has resigned from MSNBC. During his latest foray into spit-flecked animosity, he suggested that someone shit in Sarah Palin’s mouth and piss in her eyes for daring to compare the burgeoning national debt to slavery.
After public backlash, he apologized, then was put on vacation, and today resigned.
Bashir’s statement, via Legal Insurrection:
After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.
I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.’
Buh bye, Bashir. You’re just another leftie moonbat relegated to the dumpster of MSNBC history.

What a total, ungracious ass that man is. Most of what he said was how wonderful his network is and the people that listen to it though many of them may have agreed with him. Not one word of apology to Sarah Palin. He truly is a cretin, a troll.
I just hope that this ‘shit-for-brains’, Bashir remains unemployed.
