Decay in the art of political insults
Placeholder Image
With a presidential contest on the rise, so is the heat of the umbrage wars. That's what I call the endless contest to see which political side can express more outrage about what the other side has to say about them. Tea party leaders, for example, are taking umbrage at Rep. Maxine Waters, a liberal California Democrat, for the way she expressed her umbrage at the hyper-conservative tea party movement while addressing the unemployed at a forum in Inglewood, Calif.
