The Rules: Respect

I know we should be well past being shocked or even surprised by the amount of self-absorbed stupidity that passes for analysis on Q and A, but sometimes some derp comes along that still has the power to make you think, “Wow, did they really just say that?”

From this week's Q and A transcript.  Highlighting is mine.

A tip:
When the attitude of the commentariat is,
“How dare Julia Gillard speak to a senior journalist like that?”
and not,
“How dare Paul Kelly put such sleazy gossip to the prime minister of Australia?” 
then it’s a sign that we have our reverence for institutions arse-about.
