"No Hate" Obamunistas

Well, looky here:

CLEARWATER (Bay News 9) — A Clearwater man’s vehicle that displayed a bumper sticker supporting John McCain has been defaced in what appears to be a hate crime, authorities say.

According to authorities, 41-year-old Frank Armstrong’s 2006 Lexus LS 430 was parked on the 1400 block of Gulf Boulevard when someone or a group of people scratched the letters “KKK” into the paint and burned a U.S. Flag on the vehicle.

Authorities say those involved also used cigarettes to burn several areas of the car and apparently urinated on the car.

So happens I've been in Clearwater. It's part of Polk County, and not a place where one wants to cause trouble like that...

But then there's New York City:

Defendant grabbed the sign [informant] was holding, broke the wood stick that was attached to it, and then struck informant in informant's face thereby causing informant to sustain redness, swelling, and bruising to informant's face and further causing informant to sustain substantial pain.

The complainant/informant is a 58-year-old woman of 'slight build,' now with a number of bruises and band-aids...

And New Mexico:

(Sunday, October 19 - Filed by Mark Williams in Raton, New Mexico with the Stop Obama Tour) We learned at this morning’s Stop Obama Rally here that the McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express came through town yesterday. It arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon. It had also been hit by an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns. There were reportedly no injuries and neither candidate was on board.

Most likely, the shooter thought the bus was actually a rabbit.

Frankly, I'd prefer it if the violence was restricted to the floors of the House and Senate, where it is at least justifiable. Let the "honorable" Members slug it out.
