Shuster filled in for Ed Schultz today on the Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC and his first two guests were the Daily Kos’s
Markos Moulitsas and former congressmen Tom Tancredo (R-CO). Markos Moulitsas mentioned that he (Markos) was a veteran when
the conversation turned to VA health care and then said to the former Congressman, “I did not get a deferment because
I was to depressed to fight in a war” referring to Tancredo dodging the draft.
Tancredo demanded an apology, Markos said, “I’m
not pretending anything, I told you straight up”, at which point Tancredo took off his mic and left the studio, instead
of defending his actions for getting the deferment.
