Normally in this space I'd be presenting you with something to entertain you. I might even take a shot at my favorite target, the Tea Party. But recent events suggest that such things might be hazardous to one's health. Witness, if you can, what happens when 23-year-old Lauren Valle dared to infiltrate a crowd of Rand Paul supporters outside a Senate debate in Kentucky.Warning: this video contains violent content and may not suitable for all audiences.
According to Tim Profitt, the Rand volunteer seen stepping on Valle's head, the assault "looked worse than it actually was". I hope he's right about that, because it sure looks bad enough. Profitt went on to blame police for not preventing the incident. 'Scuse me Timmy, but was she breaking any laws? Or did she just hurt your iddy biddy feewings? Meanwhile the Paul campaign is backpedaling away from Timmy as fast as possible (nice they've got your back innit Tim?)... more because of the political fallout than any feeling of wrongdoing on the part of its supporters. (Um... that last bit was an opinion. Not to be confused with a statement of fact, okay? For those who have yet to learn the difference. But hey. It's my blog and I'll bitch if I want to.)
But in case you're wondering what this RepubliCorp™ business is all about, here's an introduction.
