The Price of Gifts
The problem with trying to write sarcastically is some one other than the intended victim may be offended. Unfortunately, John Brummett felt that my “Shameful” comment was directed at him when I was intent on ridiculing a certain Democrat blogger. John’s tale shows the silliness of coloring State Sen. Gilbert Baker as a corrupt politician based on a few presents of plants and cookies. A gift can be such a simple act, but for politicians and reporters it’s a potential bomb. Sen. Baker, if he intends to challenge Sen. Lincoln, will be attacked by the Democrats for receiving gifts. He should prepare for it.
