She's a lot calmer than I would have been if I were her. What a weird gathering of people. Politics are ugly.

Sure hope that curb-stompy asshole gets prosecuted.
He will get prosecuted when that crazy "pimp" kid does.
Wosname. That guy. Looks like one of your teenager's friends that's all polite and calls you Mr. Cleaver and then sets fire to your poodle when you're not looking.
There are some days when I am awake but I still want to wake up from a bad dream. This is one of those days.

They also apparently tied her up and made her worship Aqua Buddha, but that wasn't caught on film.
But seriously, this is why we don't feel comfortable with you carrying guns, guys.
I found a youtube link, and am sending it through update dead link. For everyone else: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxoKevwqxEI
did I miss the point at which political campaigns and debates dropped civility from the menu?
Yes. That was late in the 1800's. Most of us missed that since we weren't alive.
I'm sorry -- I understand the point you're trying to make here, but nearly beating someone to death with a cane on the floor of Congress sounds like the most badass thing ever.
I cringed. I'm so glad she wasn't seriously hurt, and that asshole's face was caught on film.
What's with the wig?
Honestly, some of the comments on youtube ...

Blog news reports this as an attack by a secret Conservative head stomping militia.
Marxists nation wide have been targeted to have their wigs yanked off and have their heads pressed on by a militia member wearing sneakers.
Once the monkey is impeached, and marxism is purged from the US, the militia expects to have better cash flow (not having to pay for bail outs and obama voter dregs anymore) and intends purchasing boots.
A spokesthing for marxists states: 'Thith ith juth horrible!'

Last election cycle we had Ashley Todd, the woman who was beaten up by Obama supporters. They carved a B on her face. This is revenge, Democrats.
10 years ago, I bet everyone thought that the internet would make people smarter-- but I think it's just made stupid people louder.
I guess most research shows that the internet DOES make people smarter. Of course, we tend to gloss over the fact that "smart" is a subjective, relativistic, meaningless term.
Anyway, I don't doubt that the people who post stuff like that would have been even more ignorant and illiterate without the internet.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Eventually research will prove that being REALLY smart makes people avoid the YOUTUBE comments. Sadly, that doesn''t include me. To me, they're like catnip. Vile, nasty, delicious catnip.
I was contacted by the person who posted "This is revenge, Democrats." Yes, it was a joke... and a brilliant one!
Fuck these people and fuck the inevitable email I will now get from Conway vote dredging through this person's assault. Holy fuck I would beat the shit out of someone at a Bill Clinton rally if I saw that bullshit. Politics has now surpassed religion for the Stupidest Thing In Kentucky Award.
I wanted that award, goddammit.
For angry clueless white men that is.
Now I know why so many Northerners were so excited to sign up to shoot Confederates

I would imagine that suffering severe head trauma is a prerequisite for supporting Rand Paul. Maybe they were trying to convert her.
|John Holmes Motherfucker |
It looks to me like they thought she was some kind of assassin. You can hear them yelling "Get the police!", not the sort of thing you hear from vigilante mobs. That makes them look a little less hateful, but definitely fucking idiots, driven to hysteria by by their crazy right wing media. SHE'S WEARING A WIG! NEUTRALIZE HER... NOW!
According to one report, the guy who did the stomping claimed it wasn't as bad as the camera angle made it look. According to another report, the woman was treated for concussion.
John Holmes Motherfucker
"The camera angle makes it look worse than it actually is." That's the cherry on your douchebag sundae.
She rushed towards a political candidate wearing an obvious and suspicious disguise with an object in her hand (her award).
What if she was a lunatic that wanted to kill Rand? The crowd around had absolutely no way to know she wasn't - and acted pretty damn predictably. What did she think the outcome would be?
Is your snarky comment saying that people who carry cardboard should be immune to suspicion? Thats retarded.
I'm saying people who carry signs at a political event are normal.
I'd like to note that there are nutjob supporters of all ideologies, and that this doesn't necessarily reflect on people voting for Rand Paul.
That said, Paul and the far-right in this election having been hyping fear and anger to an insane degree this election. Its no surprise that they'd attract someone like this or that their words could have this effect.
The stomper is Tim Profitt, Rand's Bourbon County campaign coordinator.
Of course it's not his fault.
One of the local news stations here (Lexington) scored an EXCLUSIVE interview with Mr. Profitt today. They did not show his face because he is "scared for his life and has received many death threats." They made him out to be a victim and it was fucking disgusting.
Wonder if 4Chan is going to troll him. Then he'd be a legitimate victim.
I guess this is good news for the left, as inexcusable shit like this will divide the right so the pigffuckers won't vote for the generally acceptable candidates and vice-versa. But hey, maybe I just have too much hope for America.
What the fuck are you talking about
In all fairness, that wasn't so much stomping her head as collapsing her collar bone.

Well, I'm glad that's cleared up. Apparently it's her fault and he deserves an apology:

At least they didn't try to (Insert sure-fire haha funny euphemism for Not So Silent Generation here.) her.
