Here's the WaPo's Ruth Marcus yesterday on the Emma Sullivan tweet to Sam Brownback:
Emma Sullivan, you’re lucky you’re not my daughter. (Dangerous sentence, I know: My daughters might agree.)
If you were my daughter, you’d be writing that letter apologizing to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback for the smartalecky, potty-mouthed tweet you wrote after meeting with him on a school field trip.
Just a reminder, here's what Sullivan said:
Just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot
I wonder what she is referring to as "potty mouth" in there? I mean we live in an age where the vice-President of the country can go into the Senate and tell another Senator to "go fuck yourself" and I don't remember Marcus taking Cheney on for that one.
And I'm wondering if Marcus even bothered to look into this story at all. Sullivan is 18. She is old enough to vote for a President or go fight and die in a war for our country, but Marcus thinks she isn't allowed to say someone sucks? It's amazing that this old crone was ever considered for a Pulitzer.
Ever wonder why the Washington Post is struggling so bad? It's because these are the type of people they give voice to. I'm sorry but Ruth Marcus is the one who sucks.
Now head over to Esquire and read their hilarious take down of the idiot that is Ruth Marcus.
