To Politico’s Ben White: ‘Are You Nuts? Stupid?’

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

National speeches bring out the best in us, don’t they? Last night, as Washington journalists were furiously tweeting and reporting their way through the evening, many on Capitol Hill and others in their respective live shot posts, Politico‘s Ben White got a taste of stranger hate. Not that he’s unfamiliar with it, but he really seeped under the skin of Palm Beach Gardens resident, Joe Jensen, who took White’s online sarcasm a little too seriously.

The offending line?

To push the point home, he added:

“Are you nuts? Stupid?” Jensen asked White.

White, not one to care too much about being insulted, replied, “Most likely both.”
