Woman Blames Husband for Obama’s Reelection, Runs Him Over with Her Jeep

Gotta love Gawker...they find some crazy stories...



Upset over the result of last week's presidential election, an Arizona woman ran over her husband with her car, believing him to be directly responsible for Obama's reelection because he didn't vote.

According to police in Gilbert, 28-year-old Holly Solomon of Mesa and her husband Daniel argued loudly in a local parking lot before Holly got in her Jeep SUV and began chasing Daniel around. She eventually managed to pin him underneath the vehicle as he was trying to run away.

Daniel sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.

"According to Daniel, Holly believed her family was going to face hardship as a result of President Obama's re-election," Gilbert police Sergeant Jesse Sanger said in a statement.

1. Horrifying. I don't think marriage counseling is going to help this couple.

Hope Daniel gets himself a divorce attorney as soon as he's able.

4. When he divorces her, she will blame it on gay marriage.

He will be looking over his shoulder for a long time, sounds like.

32. Vehicles aren't designed for killing people

A gun would have been far more efficient and she could have much more easily finished the job along with a dozen others.

19. As someone noted on the site, her family IS going to face hardship

Because of her wackjob actions. Hope the Dude divorces her and gets the hell out of there. She can get together with the skinheads.

23. I'm having a Jerry Falwell moment here. How is hate radio not responsible for this?

I mean, obviously she has other problems. But people suffering from out of control stress and delusions (and, I'm guessing, a bit of substance abuse in this case) get triggered by the insatiable harping, scare-mongering, apocalyptic talk from the right wing noise machine. The colliding forces of their mental instability, the life-stresses their instabilities aggravate, and the blame-obsession from right wing talkers giving the mentally ill something scary to fixate on, push people like her and that other Arizona RW-crazed killer over the edge.

And it's apparently Arizona is pretty toxic, politically speaking. I think "Arizona" is a Hopi word meaning "loonier than fucking Florida". So, maybe she's responsible for her actions, in the legal sense. But part of me wants to point my finger all Fallwell like at the monsters of hate who push people like this to edge, and say to the scare mongers, "I blame you."

25. I used to chat on Yahoo in the early 2000s

I remember one RW lady who told me that she wouldn't allow her husband watch the movie "Blackhawk Down" because she was afraid he would fly off in a rage and destroy their television.

Right wing talking points, the wrecking ball of minds..

27. LOL Oh yes, I remember those days

Back when there were user-named rooms, the good 'ole crazy times in the "Bush is a huge mistake" rooms.... ahh, memories.

Even though filled with plenty of crackpots, there were some genuinely awesome people there at the time. I kinda miss that.

31. Since we all know Arizona's electoral votes made the difference for Obama. And to think the state

was decided by only one vote!

I can see why she was angry.
