This is juvenile and base politicking -- and just a little bit funny.
Wisconsin state Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, a Republican, is upset at a political button that was on sale at the Dodge County (Wisc.) Fair last week. He's called on Democratic Party representatives at the county and state level to apologize for selling the button, which he called "crude" and "offensive."
So what'd the buttons say? "F Scott Fitzgerald."
The Dems say the F is just Fitzgerald's grade as a state official. Fitzgerald himself says he thinks it stands for, y'know, the "f word." (Uhh, ya think?)
Now, I'm not saying anything about the senator himself. To be perfectly honest, I'd never heard of him until this morning.
And, yes, the buttons are immature. But come on, they are kinda clever.
