Exhibit A from @Politico on how the media manufactures "outrage"

What happens when a harmless joke made by a prominent Republican Senator is turned into something it's not by the mainstream media in order to generate clicks and "outrage."

  1. More from the Politico story:  

    Asked about his comments in a news conference after the speech, Paul replied, “It was a joke. Except for Nancy Pelosi, I was serious about her.”

    When pressed, he added: “Well, I mean, it’s humor, and I hope there’s room for humor. I thought it was funny. It was meant to be humorous.”

    I sure as heck hope the Senator doesn't lose his sense of humor in order to appease the sensitivity police over at The Politico.

  2. Rant over .... for now, anyway! ; )
