Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC after trash-mouthing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
If he was forced out (and who would argue that he wasn't), I think that it's too bad. They should keep him around. Just like Rush Limbaugh is a favorite of lefties because he supposedly exemplifies everything bad about the right, Bashir has served the same purpose for righties.
As I have said before, we've become a nation that's too easily offended. Suck it up, folks.
As for what I'd suggest: Pair up Bashir and Palin for their own version of Crossfire, CNN's battle of the ideologues.
Do you have any suggestions for how Bashire could make an honest living?
