In case you missed it, a Twitter war broke out over a Tweet by Zaid Jilani using the suicide of a TEA Partier as an opportunity to criticize the TEA Party and Governor Deal. As I mentioned in the Morning Reads, our own Mike Hassinger took exception and responded. Below are tweets back and forth between Zaid, Mike and others who got involved. Jilani veered off into other topics as the evening wore on. You’ll see him go after Erick Erickson, Tim Carney and a host of others. Not every Tweet is included because there were just too many, but the essence of the debate is there.
Read the tweets and discuss. Is it right for Zaid Jilani to use the death of this man to advance his attacks, or is Mike Hassinger right that things like this should be out of bounds?
