Today’s AnonymASS Tipster writes in about our coverage on the unusual ensembles worn by Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) last week. Her constituent, Trayvon Martin, lived in Wilson’s district. She made a variety of TV appearances in questionable attire that included an array of cowboy hats and what looked to be a giant peach octopus. A reader took issue with our coverage:
“hey betsy – um, 2010 called, they want their stories about frederica wilson back. not sure why you just discovered her, but everyone else (ahem, including the wapo’s reliable source) covered her “crazy hats” about two years ago. what’s next – jim ‘beam me up!’ traficant?? please, please please try harder! thanks.”
Note to AnonymASS: Hey ASS, I appreciate you making this personal. As long as Wilson is currently in the news, we will cover her outlandish attire. And guess what, if she comes back in the news next month or next year and continues to dress like she’s trying out for “Toddlers and Tiaras” we will cover her. If ex-Rep. Jim Traficant comes back into the news, we will cover him, too. As for “trying harder” — advice you kindly send us a few times a week — you might want to listen to your own wise counsel.
