Twitter vs. Courtesy & Professionalism
Like many people, I saw Colbert get after Senator (D-MO) Claire McCaskill for twittering during Obama's address to Congress last week. I couldn't agree with him (or her mother, "Mama McCaskill") more! Do we really demand greater attentiveness from high school students than from US Senators? It was rude and unprofessional, and frankly I was a little embarrassed that she was my representative. It doesn't make me wish I had voted differently (I read it as a matter of style, not substance) but it was disappointing none the less.
