Washington Bullying

There is a strong push to stamp out bullying in this country, especially in the schools.

It's a noble concept, just as the attempt to outlaw the use of the "R" word.

Yesterday, a 16-year-old intern at The Daily Caller went to The White House for a presser with Obama mouthpiece Jay Carney.  The intern, Gabe Finger, asked the Press Secretary if the President would take any action to protect George Zimmerman's family, given they have been the target of multiple death threats.

Mr. Carney seemed amused, and responded in basic "political speak," but ultimately deferred the issue to the state of Florida.

Finger pressed the issue, asking "So they will be on their own," which, isn't unfair, given Carney didn't answer the question.  That's when Carney got smug, obnoxious, and bullying.

FOX News was just-oh-so-happy to jump on the bandwagon.

It shouldn't be done at any age, but doing it to a 16-year-old intern?  Well guess what? Finger is now a mini-celebrity, and Carney looks like a clown.

Something I don't have patience for, regardless of political affiliation.

So, yeah.
