Mickey Maurer’s May 31 commentary was a nice tribute to Gov. [Mitch] Daniels and was a somewhat humorous and tongue-in-cheek piece, that is, until he decided to take some cheap shots at Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump.
Obviously Maurer does [not] care for many conservative office holders or candidates outside of Indiana. And to call Sarah Palin, a very successful governor in her own right and an individual vilified by many in the media, a “clown” was way over the top. Talk about hypocritical, in the same paragraph Maurer is lamenting the vicious and savage attacks candidates and their families have to suffer through, then he turns around and calls two conservative, non-candidates “clowns.”
