Over at the Daily Dot
I take a look at
the online controversy over the justice department's new anti-prison rape guidelines. Wait -- why is there an anti-prison rape controversy
So, to recap: the justice department under President Obama (a Democrat)
passed guidelines to comply with a nine-year-old law passed under
President Bush (a Republican), and a list of all senators and
congressmen who voted for it back then covers the whole political
spectrum. That makes the guidelines a bipartisan or even a non-partisan
issue, right? One where everyone nods and says “Thank you, Captain
Obvious” before going on to tackle some controversial issues?
In the real world, we hope so. On Twitter, not even close.
