Update: Maxine Waters’s Deputy Communications Director Responds

by Charles C. W. Cooke

Maxine Waters’s deputy communications director, Eric Orner, is not happy with me for posting on the Corner a video of his boss speaking:

I just noticed a post by National Review On-Line contributor Charles C. W. Cooke about  House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Water’s obvious slip of the tongue (she accidentally said 170 million , when she meant 170 thousand) when referring to the number of  jobs that may be lost as a result of sequestration.

I think this was below your standards, and hope you’ll reconsider the post.

Never mind. When the very fabric of the republic collapses at 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, this will all be rendered moot.

The one and only.
