we ask: is Romney the Bill Palmer of the GOP?
In an article titled Obama’s comments on Afghanistan draw sharp rebuke from Romney campaign, language that suggests that Obama is an errant school child, Bill Sammon of The Examiner describes yet another instance of Romney affecting the pose of an outraged school marm. The details are not important.
Does anyone still remember Bill Palmer, the self-styled “flame giant” of USENET? To brief yourself on this uniquely abusive USENET entity, or to refresh your memory, you can refer to this FAQ, follow the links etc. In sum, Palmer, shielded by the anonymity of the medium, would provoke other newsgroup users into flame duels by nit-picking, cheap shot taking, taking claims out of context, and relentless bombast. If called on his behavior he would claim injury even as he would lie, distort, and relentlessly attack his opponent, behaviors summarized here.
Willard Milton Romney behaves similarly.
