Washington Examiner‘s senior political columnist Tim Carney is apparently on “quasi-maternity leave” this week. Whatever that means. But more importantly, has he completely lost his mind?

Observers quickly picked up on his quasi-craziness.

  • “Those thoughts often come w sleep deprivation Sanity will return w a full night’s sleep. Congrats frm Chicago on new little one!”
  • “You need another week off. Seriously congratulations on the new baby.”
  • “Ok. Pat Leave is over. Time for you to go back to work, old boy.”
  • “Sometimes sleep deprivation brings an odd clarity…”

Linda McHugh Fox, author of Silent Fury, went above and beyond harsh. “Sorry, don’t mean to be harsh but you need a vacation from yourself,” she wrote.

And Liz Mair, a new media advisor and former aide to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), decided to challenge him on the milk. She wrote, “Soy milk. IN YOUR FACE, CARNEY!!!!!”
