Ed Schultz tears into Rush Limbaugh over Wisconsin protests

Protests in Madison, Wisconsin, continue unabated through five days. As such, the political event has predictably drawn the attention of disparate opinion-makers like Ed Schultz and Rush Limbaugh. So, it should be no surprise when the two hosts, neither of them strangers to rabble-rousing histrionics, ended up butting heads.

Case in point: When Limbaugh called protesters in Wisconsin whiners and freeloaders late last week, it sent Schultz — himself camped out in Madison among scores of angry demonstrators — into one of his trademark tirades.
