Knox County school board member Indy Kincannon earlier tonight took a shot at county Mayor Tim Buchett on Twitter, saying: "Imagine if Tim Burchett spent as much time supporting our kids as he does bashing our schools superintendent."
I'm assuming Kincannon's tweet is in response to a story I wrote - right smack here - about Burchett's request that the school system hire an outside auditor to look at school security, and a story Georgiana Vines wrote - right smack here - in which Burchett also used a GOP meeting to push for an elected school superintendent.
I talked to the mayor about it and he said: "That's her right as an American to do that. My father fought in World War II for her right and my uncle died in World War II, so I stand behind her First Amendment rights."
No word on whether the mayor, who is no stranger to Twitter, will take to the web waves with another response.
"Attacking the messenger" is an exceptionally ill-advised tactic at this stage of the game.
Just sayin'. -bp
