Politics Shouldn't Be About Sushi

So what if a Member of Congress likes sushi.
“These are exactly the types of childish political attacks that take the focus off of the number one challenge facing Wisconsin middle-class families, and that’s creating jobs,” the NRCC’s Andrea Bozek told TPM. “That’s where Sean Duffy’s focus is, Sean is working with both sides of the aisle to remove Washington’s barriers to job growth in order to get our economy back on track.”
Republicans know what's important, and it's not sushi. It's cheesesteaks and Cheez Whiz. It's lattes. It's Freedom Fries and Freedom Toast. But it's definitely not sushi... unless a Democrat is eating it.
"Howard Dean should take his tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading, body-piercing, Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs."
I'll grant that, despite my skepticism that they would issue a similar comment about a right-wing attack ad, past, present or future, the NRCC is correct that Sean Duffy's love for sushi shouldn't be an issue. His whining about how hard it is to get by on $174,000 per year, though, seems like fair game.
