Reporter assaulted at Palin rally in NC
Edited on Fri Oct-17-08 09:53 AM by libnnc

There are certain things that get me really concerned when I hear them from someone I'm working with. Joe Killian (who blogs for the paper here and on his own time here) added a new one to my list:

Joe was working with me on a package for tomorrow's newspaper covering Gov. Sarah Palin's visit to Elon and Greensboro.

"Dude," he says when I called to check on him. "Some guy just kicked me in the back of the leg." <snip>

3. And despite all the abuse they've taken from McPalin, they continue to
give Thuper Tharah tons of free air time.

2. This kind of stuff is just going to get worse the closer we get to the election,
if Obama continues to do well in polling.

I fear what these crazies are going to do when he's elected President. They're going to go ballistic! The Secret Service needs to crack down on this crap. They should talk to McSame/Pain and tell them if they continue to rile up their crowds in this manner, people who make threats or act up in any way are going to be arrested on the spot and removed from the gathering.

They should be doing this already.

4. I'm not going to jump into the fray on the N&R
nor will I quibble with the spelling. I doubt my spelling would be much of anything to brag about after a day like that, either.

Did you cross-post to BlueNC? I haven't had time to check in over there this morning.

7. :) I read the thread on N&R and the spelling nazis
were out. It wasn't you -- I was commenting on the posters on the N&R blog. I suppose if they couldn't assail the content, then all they could go after was the spelling. Kinda sad, idnit.

As for me, I wasn't about to go to a McFailin rally. I commend the reporters' nerve. If I had gone, I doubt my spelling or punctuation would have been stellar, either.

6. This is the second assault I've heard of and still it hasn't hit MSM.
Fuckin' idiots. The incitement of violence has moved into violence.
