Midterms are upon us! While most people are able to express themselves without pushing women to the ground and stomping them, Rand Paul supporters in Kentucky decided it would be cool beans to wrestle a MoveOn.org volunteer to the ground when she was, you know, just kind of there, doing things you do at political rallies. (In her case, hold up a jokey sign and try to give Paul an "award" for being a corporate shill.)
For most folks this is a minor annoyance and you shrug it off. Not Rand Paul supporters! IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!
Wig snatchin' AND foot stompin'! For one person with a sign.
Measured. Appropriate. Sane. Three things this is not.
But this is just the side show ...
Paul, for those uninitiated, is the son of crazy presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas. Right now he's a U.S. Senate candidate and is running to take back America from scary Kenyan socialists. He has quite a bit of Tea Party support. He's also, quite possibly, insane.
He's been in a crazy race against Democratic contender Jack Conway. One involving bringing up an old college weirdo prank Paul participated in where he kind of, sort of kidnapped a woman (for funzies!) and made her pray to "Aqua Buddha."
But woman kidnapping, stomping and Aqua Buddhas aside, Paul has a slight lead over Conway. It's down from a much bigger lead he had early on, but ... it's still a lead.
Naturally, if you think the Senate has ENOUGH certifiable crazy people running around in it, holding up legislation and doing nothing, it might behoove you, Kentucky folk who abhor crazy, to not vote Rand Paul for Senate. I mean, I'm sure Rand Paul will float all kinds of "fun" bills and amendments and legislation that will be a huge waste of everyone's time. And it will give me endless fodder to mock on The Snob Blog, but ... really. I can make fun of other things, Kentucky.
Go with sanity this Midterm. I beg you.
Sidenote: In this local FOX affiliate news report about the woman who got stomped it is AMAZING to me that no focus or emphasis is put on the individuals who wrestled her to the ground, ripped her wig off, walked on her, stomped her and shouted "Get the police" as if she had a dirty bomb and her name was Osama. All the emphasis was put on her, why she was there and whether or not the police questioned her -- not the people who STEPPED ON HER! But yeah. You really look like a big, tough man Rand Paul supporter when you wrestle one woman to the ground with a sign and step on her while shouting "Get the police." That is sooo badass. She looked so dangerous with her glasses and sweatshirt. I know I always get excited when an adult attacks another adult because they've lost the ability to USE THEIR WORDS! Stay classy, Lexington!
