Mother Jones Editor Calls Carlson a ‘D–kbag’

Mother Jones‘ Engagement Editor Adam Weinstein, relatively new to Washington’s cozy media world, is making fast friends. But not with The Daily Caller‘s Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson.

“Sigh. I remember when bowties were a mark of respectability,” Weinstein lashed out on Twitter Tuesday, referring to Carlson’s former penchant for wearing bow-ties. He hasn’t worn them in more than five years. Asked to elaborate on his thought and make sure he was, in fact, referring to Carlson, Weinstein told FishbowlDC, “It merely meant that Tucker Carlson is such a dickbag, he actually manages to sully the standard uniform of Rotarian alcoholic eight-pounds-of-hair-having Dixie conservative frat boy douchecanoes the world over.”

Carlson’s response was brief.

“Who’s Adam Weinstein?” he wrote by email.
