Microsoft Gets Overtly Political

Microsoft has a small bit of egg on its face after an employee who mans the company Twitter stream posted a message critical of Ann Coulter, arguing that Robert Reich's granddaughter is smarter than the blonde Cornell grad. The two were to speak on a panel together, prompting this message (because it was written in Twitter speak I had to read it twice to understand it): "@RBReich your granddaughter's level of discourse and policy > those of Ann Coulter."

I guess this is the Internet equivalent of hitting "send all."
