I’m no huge ‘fern fan, but this is one of the funniest lines I’ve heard in some time. For those not in on the back story, this will help (even made BBC). Statewide Republicans are so desperate to deflect actual Republican sexual scandal that they have – and are – attempting to use this incident as a way to do that.
What would normally garner chuckles (and did from students) has turned into the latest faux scandal by state Republicans and wingnut bloggers alike. Today, the ‘fern takes this issue head on and all the blog reading must be rubbing off on him ‘cuz my man puts some attitude in it:
?Kevin, you attacked a 13 year old kid for political motives. What?s next Kev, kicking my dog? Telling kids there is no Santa Claus? Kevin, I know you are inexperienced in statewide politics, but at some point you are going to have to stop bullying kids and join us at the grown-ups table. Pick on someone your own size,? said Chris Redfern, Chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party.
Sounds like a saying at the poker table for those who play like newbies. This is the grown up table. The kiddie table is that way! (ht Mike Matusow)
…I love the smell of desperation in the morning!
