It’s really amazing how irritable the crowd at Richard Quinn & Associates is these days. The election is next week, yet the operatives at the firm seem to be working overtime dealing with bloggers than doing work for their clients.

Smart strategy, there.

Now, someone from RQ&A (from the firm’s server, no less) has been trying to post comments, not refuting what Vierdsen’s posted, but just trying ad-hominem attacks:


When are you going to start posting under your name now that everyone knows who you are?


Wes Wolfe’s inner conscience

P.S. – At least Rick Quinn has a job

Then there was this one:

Why are you censoring my comments, Wes? What’s the matter, you can’t take what you dish out?

Well, Vierdsen is used to some good give and take. What’s funny is how thin-skinned Young Republicans are (with due respect to Vierdsen’s conservative friends). John knows it’s YRs at the firm because older Republicans have actually got the maturity to let it roll off and move on.

It reminds Vierdsen of that great American, President Harry Truman. In a famous interaction a supporter yelled, “Give ’em hell, Harry!” Truman responded, “I don’t give ’em hell. I just tell the truth and they think it’s hell!”

    Wes has done some fisrt rate reporting in the past. Wes, or John or whoever at his blog may be trash talking…but Wes (and Corey) covered some important stories…and I am thankful for them.
