Nahm's staff acting pathetic

Seriously, how pathetic is it to be caught editing Coleman's entry on Wikipedia? Didn't anybody tell them that editing your own (or your boss's) entry is a faux pas?

Also pathetic is spokesman Eric Mische's whining. "What's to stop someone from writing in that Norm Coleman was 7-feet-10-inches, with green hair and one eye smack dab in the middle of his head?" People with more integrity than you and your staff, Eric. Politicians may find this hard to believe, but there are a lot of people in the world who believe in objectivity and accuracy and actually want to make sure that these entries reflect reality, not political spin. If I saw such nonsense in his entry, I would remove it. Amazing!

Wikipedia is a great resource, one that I use every day. Sure, it's not 100% accurate, but nothing is. As long as you check other sources and take a look at the revision history or discussion page when it comes to controversial issues, you shouldn't be hoodwinked too often.

Also, a note to staff: do this stuff from home. That way, you might not be caught when your IP address reveals you to be working from Nahm's office.
