...is that it is somehow rude to hold politicians--especially right-of-center politicians--to the standard of behaving with honor or serving the public interest, and even ruder to point out that the Washington press corps village should call them on it. Ron Fournier of the National Journal, for example, calls it "name calling".
@ThePlumLineGS: RT @AdamSerwer: Tom Cotton's new ad points out welfare for farmers is ok, but not for poor people http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2014/09/29/socialism-for-me-but-not-for-thee/
@ron_fournier: @ThePlumLineGS @AdamSerwer He's running in Arkansas
@ryanlcooper: @ron_fournier @ThePlumLineGS @AdamSerwer good point, I forgot how Arkansas has zero poors
@AdamSerwer: @ryanlcooper @ron_fournier @ThePlumLineGS I bet "give money to farmers instead of grubby kids and old people" wouldn't do that well in AR
@ThePlumLineGS: @AdamSerwer @ryanlcooper @ron_fournier It is impossible to get a national reporter or commentator to acknowledge this fact, though
@ryanlcooper: @ThePlumLineGS @AdamSerwer @ron_fournier Tom who? Arka-what? Medi-huh? My question is, why won't #Oblammer lead
@ThePlumLineGS: @ryanlcooper @AdamSerwer @ron_fournier Oblammer?
@ron_fournier: @ThePlumLineGS @ryanlcooper @AdamSerwer Not here. Knock off the name calling please or go elsewhere.
