Here are some petty things that annoy me, if only for a minute:
Kanye West thinking he can take the stage whenever he wants, even though it ruined Taylor Swift’s winning moment.
Politico implying that former Bush media adviser Mark McKinnon speaks for Republicans when he said Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst shows “their party is becoming known less for the power of its ideals and more for the pettiness of its vitriol.” McKinnon is the voice of the GOP now because he supports Obama. But in 1999, when McKinnon worked for George Bush, Time Magazine described him as a long-time Democrat intent on selling “his fellow Democrats” on George Bush.
Here’s one thing that isn’t petty. It’s a sad day when an American political leader like Sen. Diane Feinstein and a terrorist like Osama bin Laden agree it’s time for the U.S. to set a date to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan.
