Mayor Upset Over Jerk Site

As Flyover Country tells us Mayor Kirk Humphries of OKC is upset about a website called Kirk is a Jerk.com A peek at the site would suggest that it is the work of a long-time Democratic Party "operative" that has done similar hatchet job e-mails and websites about other Republican candidates in the past. The best you can say about this work is that it doesn't exactly raise the level of political discussion. It is quite tasteless and if the Democratic Party has any connection with it at all they should repudiate its content. Lampooning politicians is a great tradition but to be funny it can't be mean-spirited. But as Flyover Country noted the mayor has overreacted.
