Bud Kennedy throws a tantrum over photo

"But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive."
Genesis 50:20

Earlier today, this website posted two pieces about Tarrant County representative Craig Goldman.  To illustrate those pieces this author selected a photo at random from a Google Image search.  This prompted the following direct message on Twitter from Bud Kennedy:

While Kennedy's request was petty, we changed the photo as a CYA move.  That being said, by making such a childish demand, Kennedy made the image newsworthy and thus subject to fair use.  This is the image Kennedy didn't want readers to see, it shows Craig Goldman, who worked on the 2008 McCain campaign, in a McCain hat:

The next, more interesting, question is why Kennedy cared about this enough to throw a hissy fit.  Did Craig Goldman ask him to do it?!?  Does Goldman not want voters to be aware of his history with McCain?!?

On a related note, we find it interesting that the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reads this website in the first place.
