So, just what is it with liberals roughing up people in public?
This summer we had the purple people-beaters of the SEIU smack around Kenneth Gladney at a Tea Party rally in St. Louis (btw, because this beat-down was clearly politically-motivated and because Gladney is black (a liberal two-fer!) why isn’t this case being prosecuted under hate-crime statutes?).
Now, we’ve got a Martha Coakley supporter shoving to the ground a Weekly Standard reporter who dared ask the candidate for Ted Kennedy’s vacated Senate seat a question after her fundraiser in Washington. Coakley is currently locked up in a tight one with Mass. state senator, Republican Scott Brown. The shover turned out to be a Dem Party operative, Michael Meehan. Follow links for full story here.
And Chuckie Schumer (D-NY) weighs in on the closely contested battle with a plea for donors that starts off with this:
I got the message below from Ted Kennedy's widow, Vicki, and I wanted to make sure you saw it.
Martha Coakley is running to fill the rest of Ted Kennedy's term, and her opponent is a far-right tea-bagger Republican.
It would be bad enough to lose this seat -- and Democrats' sixtieth vote in the Senate -- right before the final health care reform vote. But it would be even worse for the decisive "no" vote to come from Ted Kennedy's old seat.
But, of course - the obligatory “tea-bagger” reference and a call by proxy from the grave. Jeezus! Can you all just let the man rest in peace?
Things are grim right now in Massachusetts, very grim indeed.
