Jason Rapert vs. Wikipedia

ANOTHER MEME COMING: Jason Rapert's famous run-in with a constituent on a Lowe's parking lot prompted this Internet jab. Surely his tilt with Wikipedia will bring new memes.

Sen. Jason Rapert
against the world: Wikipedia edition.

Rapert is highly excited about material posted about him on Wikipedia. Wikipedia editors are instructing him on the finer points of the crowd-sourced encyclopedia and also gently noted that it is considered a bit of a conflict of interest to edit a page about yourself.

Among other complaints, Rapert objects to citations of the Arkansas Times. Sticking in his craw still is our coverage of a famous speech about minorities, supported by a videotape of the man's words. 

Terribly unfair.

Check it out. This has been going on for some time, but it seems to have gained intensity.
