C-SPAN Deals With ‘Sh-t’

Ed Whelan, who works for the Ethics and Public Policy Center, spoke about the Obama administration’s decision requiring church-affiliated employers to cover birth control on C-SPAN this morning. During his appearance, he answered calls and electronic communications and encountered a fair amount of grief from a number of emotional callers. One in particular stands out: “John” a “Democrat” in Angola, Indiana injects “shit” into the conversation. Listen to John at 25:41 here. The host didn’t miss a beat, and Whelan responded to the viewer’s comments.

The upside: At least Whelan wasn’t subjected to the infamous question that has been plaguing C-SPAN as of late: “How big is Mitt Romney’s penis?”
