1. Democrat punched in the face by Rethuglican
the dude that was hit should press charges so everyone can see what Brown Shirts the Republicans are.

2. You or I would be sitting in jail...
This guy should definitely press charges... it's all on tape, including an admission.

5. I didn't hear it on the clip, but did Sen. Barron actually call Sen.
Bishop an SOB? I'm asking because someone asked me earlier.

9. Barron denies that he did, but I don't know
Charles Bishop has a long history of violent and just basically anti-social behavior. I think he qualifies as a "self-made son of a bitch" whether Lowell Barron called him that or not.

6. Where I was raised, that is called assault and is a crime. And my mother would
not allow such behavior.

7. Parallels to 19th Century attack by Preston Brooks on Sen. Chas. Sumner
This really brings to mind South Carolina Congressman Preston Brooks on Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner.
Take a look at the wikipedia bio of Charles Sumner

8. Republicans are violent cowards
It was a sucker punch. I hope the Democrat files charges on the SOB.

11. TOTAL SUCKER PUNCH!
if you're in that state, you should write that Congressman or call and tell him he was attacked when it totally wasn't expected, IF he doesn't bring charges on the ReTHUG... amazing... they're far more nutty on a whole than Dems could ever be...


Redstone called it right, southern GENTLEMAN? lol

14. not a Congressman. Hasn't made it to Washington...yet.
his stock probably will go up in Republican circles now....I can see it now...Tancredo's southern strategy. "Vote for us" or we'll break your cheekbone" or wherever we can get our collective hand on you."

criminal charges due here....definately.
in my state that's fifth=degree assault, maybe third-degree if he broke the cheekbone.
clearly enough to arrest, book and charge him

12. What a weak excuse.


So the sole reason Bishop hit Senator Barron was to protect his mother's memory?


Horseshit.


If that's the case, then I guess we can safely assume that he wouldn't have reacted at all if Senator Barron had merely called him an asshole - or even a motherfucker, assuming he's married & his wife's had children, *and* assuming she still lets him touch him.


Just sayin.

17. wanna know my thoughts on that, Senator?
from where I come from, that's called assault and your ass should be arrested and thrown in jail and you give up your senate seat. But that's me.

Word to ya mama: thug apples don't fall far from their trees.

18. the triumph of the passive voice. amazing
"that shouldn't have happened" like he didn't have anything to do with it. just amazing. sounds like he has had a lot of practice covering his ass.

19. So physical violence is the answer
to you being called a name? Ever heard of sticks and stones? I'm sure his grandkids are proud. :puke:

I like that the tries to cover his ass after rather happily stating he landed the punch wherever his right fist connected.
