Rush Limbaugh complained that Smith is "whining and moaning." Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller accused Smith of "scary stupidity" and being a "pompous elitist," before arguing, "Shep sucks. And Shep has always sucked, and it's time to get rid of the deadwood.... He has got to go." WorldNetDaily responded by talking about an alleged auto incident involving Smith in 2000. An item on HotAir.com said Smith believes "his own viewership is teeming with would-be presidential assassins. If he truly believes that, why doesn't he quit?"
So Shep Smith gets a lot of wingnut e-mails. And the wingnuts are pissed that he mentioned this. I wonder if the wingnuts will fire off more nasty e-mails calling for Shep to step down.
