Man bites off man's finger at Obama healthcare rally
September 3, 2009 | 12:04 am

Here's a weird little piece of late-breaking news about the nation's ongoing healthcare reform debate:

A 65-year-old man at a Wednesday night California rally supporting President Obama's embattled reform ideas had a finger bitten off during a scuffle with anti-reform protesters.
a Little Finger

Ventura County sheriff's deputies were called to the intersection of Lynn and Hillcrest Road in Thousand Oaks near Los Angeles, according to TV station KTLA.

There, an estimated 100 supporters of healthcare reform affiliated with MoveOn.org had gathered as part of a nationwide array of local pre-Labor Day rallies to attract attention in support of Obama's reform plans currently before Congress.
