The title of this post is in honor of our long-lost friend Boru. It is fair to criticize the stupid people on all sides of the debate. But if you actually watched and listened to the video, you will see this is one isolated person who acts stupidly (unlike President Obama, we do have the facts on this one, and this person was in fact acting stupidly). Everyone else was searching for the police to handle the MoveOn.org paid operative, Lauren Valle (who was charged with a felony as a Green”peace” operative in May of this year), seeking to add to this photo roll (because apparently only Democrats are allowed to accept donations from big business, like President Obama’s $77,051, the largest corporate contribution from BP during this past election cycle, but Republicans are all selling their votes, who knew?). Further, you can hear someone saying: “No no no no, come on,” successfully convincing this idiot to not stomp on this unfortunate lady’s head again.

On another note, today I confirmed that Harry Reid’s book sales did not contribute to the $750,000 in cash he paid for his Washington DC Ritz-Carlton condominium. You know, that is the place where he doesn’t live, he only “stays” at in Washington, because, remember, being paid $193,400 per year, he knows what is best for the average smelly American, which is why he had played such a vital role in socializing our health care, extending the annual federal operating budget deficit to $1.3 trillion, and destroying our economy (remember when the “stimulus” package would never allow unemployment to exceed 8%?) . Harry Reid certainly does know something about “The Good Fight”, well, “The Fight,” anyway. This stack of books pictured below the jump was priced at only $1 each, covered in dust, and apparently couldn’t be marked down low enough! So the evidence appears conclusive that “The Good Fight” did not fund The Ritz for Harry Reid.

Evidence Harry Reid's book sales did not contribute to the cash purchase of his Ritz-Carlton condo!

    Sorry about double posting. My browser is glitchy.

    Anyway, to hold Ron Paul accountable for the stomping is as wrong to hold Obama for the moveon.org goon’s actions.

    With just a few debate appearances, Ron Paul changed the direction of the main stream political rhetoric, raised millions of dollars, started a real conservative revolution that is already threatening the neocon stranglehold on the Republican party…..and he wasn’t really trying to win! In 2008, he just gave an educational campaign.

    So play the age card all you want, the Ron Paul Revolution is already changing things and it has only started. When he dies, he will become more powerful than ever.

    It’s actually quite amazing when you think about it. The international powers that be thought they had the world in their pocket, then this old guy shows up and screws it all up.

    They can try to mimick us out of power, they can try to murder us out of existence, but the ideas are out there now, burning through the layers of deception faster than

    Integrity. Freedom. Love. You just can’t stop these things. It is not Chuck Norris’ roundhouse kick that make him suitable for superpower jokes, it is his integrity. Ditto for Ron Paul.

    And the neocons can’t fake these things anymore.

    The delusion that prevented the fight is over. All that is left is the fight.

    I don’t know why such a fuss is being made about a little tussle at a campaign event. During the 2004 cycle, Al Franken came up behind an anti-Howie Dean protester and knocked him to the ground using a self described “wrestling move”. Look where Franken ended up.

    Did anyone at this event start screaming “come see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I’m being repressed!”

    Now that would be news.

      Or perhaps if a “watery tart lobbed a scimitar” at Obama, we’d all be ready to change our votes, eh?

      • David Kaiser, Editor

        Somewhere here there is a joke to be had about Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton.

        I’m just not sure I can come close to making it appropriate.

    “Legitimate use of violence can only be that which is required in self-defense.”

      um what?

      • Brian H

        um……I don’t believe the man who put his foot on a woman’s face was acting in self-defense. Do you?

        agreed, i was responding to the quote itself

  • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

    I apologize for so many links, but I don’t like to make a factual statement without backing it up. Also, the quality of the picture isn’t that great either because I took it with my old, recommissioned, what-else-can-an-unemployed-guy-afford? Blackberry.

      Scott, I think PD is hiring. The pay is cruddy, but the benis are great!

      • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

        I’ll work for food….

      • David Kaiser, Editor

        Don’t listen to him Scott.

        He gave me the same line 5 years ago and all I have to show for it is a bunch of conservatives who think I am a spineless moderate and a half a book shelf of Jason Wright novels.

        Oh, I did get lunch once!

        ;)

        • http://www.politicalderby.com/ Jason Wright, Editor

          You meant to say, “half a book shelf of unread Jason Wright novels.”

          • David Kaiser, Editor

            So untrue.

            I don’t believe in wasting my compensation frivolously, as inconsequential it may be.

            It’s the fiscal conservative in me.

          • http://www.sotr.us Cordeiro

            Typical moderate. Only half a shelf.

          • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

            I won one of Jason’s contests once. Otherwise, I’ve purchased the rest of his books. So I guess the pay is “cruddy”!

        • Gary Russell

          Spineless? Definitely not!

          Moderate? Welllll, maybe just a little…

          • David Kaiser, Editor

            Thanks Gary, that’s a swell thing for you to say :)

            I think.

    • Red State Eddio

      Dang, you definitely get the award for “Most links in a single post”. I had to use a calculator. Nice clarity on the tussle, though!

      I’m hearing union political rallies pay well these days. Lunch is included.

    • Red State Eddio

      Speaking of which, in the spirit of Scott’s post, here’s a link talking about free food at voter turnout events.

      Maybe you can register over…and over…and over again. That’s a Democrat’s understanding of ‘return business’.

      Teacher’s unions are also giving out gift cards in exchange for voting for Reid.

    • Boru

      No worries. You primarily used the links as footnotes (sources).

  • pdiddy

    favorite post in a while. nice. even my bberry handled the links!

  • Boru

    Boy, this place has changed: new layout, Facebook babe ads, and the articles link-whip(TM) you into another dimension. Moderate your monitization methods.

    Anyway, Rand not only survived the debate last night, he did well. Conway actually bused half the people there…and they were quite hostile…assaulting at least two people I know. Conway’s folks created an obstacle course of harassment for Rand to traverse just to get into the building! None of that got aired, but the video of the moveon.org goon did.

    Further, Rand showed some back-bone in the debate…albeit mealey mouthed. God I hate the Paul’s lack of base in their voice. At least carry a hickory stick.

    Concerning Reid, did you hear about the ballots with his name already checked off? Even Dangling Chad can’t believe that.

    Finally, why is Chris Christie higher than Ron Paul on PD’s ’12 Power Rankings? Paul won the 2010 CPAC straw poll and tied Christie at the Richmond VA straw poll. Finally, Christie’s from Jersey….JERSEY! If Christie is the GOP’s ope, it’s four more years of Obama…that’s the *situation*!

    • David Kaiser, Editor

      Poor Boru can’t handle the truth that not everyone has the hero worship for the Paul clan that he has.

      *Sniffle*

    • Brian H

      Question – “Finally, why is Chris Christie higher than Ron Paul on PD’s ‘12 Power Rankings?”

      Answer – Ron Paul is older than dirt.

  • Rochelle

    Gosh, can’t people behave with some civility. We all need to take a step back, decide who we really are and refuse to be sucked into a mob mentality. This gives a whole new meaning to “voting with your feet.”

    • Brian H

      “Voting with your feet”. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

      Nice one, Rochelle!!

    While the Rand Paul situation was deplorable it wasn’t like SEIU beating someone up from all sides.
    One person was an idiot and then was told by others to knock it off. I bet you the LSM cuts off the video before you can hear him chastised and plays it over and over all day long.
