Shelby County Republican member Anne Truett writes about the latest Steve Cohen eruption on today’s editorial page. “Fill That Attention Deficit” reads the headline.
“This liberal loose cannon craves free attention and has figured out how to get it,” Truett writes. “President Obama’s recent call for civility was a warning to Republicans only. It was their signal to stop the debate and shut the heck up. … Obama set the tone for his administration, and even if he sincerely wanted to (which he doesn’t), it’s too late to call off the dogs.”
Cohen never did back down from his statement. Did anyone in his own party leadership chastise him? Don’t think so.
