So, the GOP went after “Irishman” Beto O’Rourke today for St. Patrick’s day and posted this old mugshot from his DUI along with a Photoshopped Leprechaun hat and the caption, “Drink Responsibly”:

“Irishman” is quite a loaded term for a political party to use alongside an arrest photo on St. Pat’s wknd. At Notre Dame and elsewhere, I know scholars who closely track the way Catholics and Irish Americans have been portrayed — and are still portrayed in America. https://t.co/M9aGI5uS5N

“Childish” is probably a fair criticism:

And here’s Paul Krguman comparing the @GOP to the Nazis and the Holocaust with a paraphrase the Martin Niemöller poem, “First they came. . .”:
I said nothing when they came for the Muslims, because I am not a Muslim
I said nothing when they came for the blacks, because I am not black.
I said nothing when they came for the Jews, because I am not Jewish.
In the end, nobody is safehttps://t.co/xwHP4DT8Iy
