You know, the one who – according to multiple accounts – broke through the Secret Service cordon at today’s Paul Ryan rally at the Iowa State Fair, rushed the stage, then assaulted someone in the crowd on her way to jail. Now, heckling is fine – and if you watch the video here, you’ll see why* – but if you’re sufficiently unhinged as to take a swing at somebody when they’re removing you from the stage, guess what? They’re right to remove you from the stage. By definition.
Now, I’m not going to make this a full-fledged snarl, but let me clue in Obama for America: you idiots dodged a bullet today. Whoever it was that sent that woman out there – and let’s not pretend that OfA isn’t encouraging counter-protests – screwed up by winding up and setting loose a potentially dangerous obsessive. Fire whichever particular idiot did it, review and revamp your entire procedure – or it will happen again.
You may not be so lucky next time.
*Short version: people that unhinged don’t move the needle for the side that they are putatively on. Thankfully.
