Oh hey, look I’m writing something!
In case you missed it, yesterday the big news out of Kentucky was that a Rand Paul field coordinator decided the natural way to deal with a Moveon.org protester was to stomp on her head until she has a concussion. Now we’re no fans of Moveon.org, but really? That seems excessive.
Care to take the crazy up a notch, Mr. field coordinator?
Tim Profitt — the former Rand Paul volunteer who stomped on the head of a MoveOn activist — told told local CBS station WKYT that he wants an apology from the woman he stomped and that she started the whole thing.
“I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” Profitt said. “I would like for her to apologize to me to be honest with you.”
“She’s a professional at what she does,” Profitt added, “and I think when all the facts come out, I think people will see that she was the one that initiated the whole thing.”
Right, she’s a professional protester, whereas Profitt is just a regular much-larger man. Obviously when those two meet at a rally, the professional is going to wind up getting her head stomped, eh?
Kudos all around on this one. Way to go, Moveon.org protester; your plan to get a concussion from getting your head stomped in worked. And way to go, Tim Profitt; you rocketed up the scale from regular old goon to Dick Cheney-level crazy person. It takes some serious balls to ask for an apology from the person whose head you just crushed with your New Balances.
Oh, and kudos to us, America. We’ve done quite a job with the yelling and cable newsification of this country. We’re all on Hardball now! Ain’t it grand!?
