MSNBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin will be returning to the network this week, according to an MSNBC spokesperson, saying it had been a one-month suspension.

Halperin was suspended after he called President Obama a "dick" on the Morning Joe program June 30. He thought the remark was being bleeped out when he made it.

Halperin made the comment in reference to Obama's demeanor in a news conference. Halperin apologized immediately, but was suspended indefinetly by the network, which turned out to be about a month. Halperin had called his suspension "totally appropriate."
