Kickin' it In Kentucky

Now, God knows the election here in California is weird enough, what with Meg trying to buy the governorship, Carly trying to act senatorial, and the ten dwarves running for mayor of Oakland.  But at least nobody is stomping anybody.

I learned about this from Facebook via a chain of blogs, but here's the link to the original report of this atrocity, from the local Fox News station:
Woman stomped outside Conway-Paul debate

The brief summary, from talkingpointsmemo.com, is that a MoveOn.org supporter tried to approach Paul and a group (more than two) of Paul supporters threw her to the ground and held her down while one of them stomped on her head and neck.  TPM has video if your stomach will stand it.

This is criminal assault and battery, folks.  Assault and battery with bodily harm is a felony in California, folks; I wonder what it is in Kentucky?  And yeah, reports indicate the woman had a concussion and multiple sprains; that's "bodily harm" in my book.

I hope everybody considering voting for Mr. Paul remembers the behavior his associates seem to think is appropriate.  The MoveOn.org supporter was going to give him an "Employee of the Month" award from "Republicorp", which MoveOn invented to point up the connections between business and the GOP.  In refusing that award, he's just won the newly created Gestapo award for Sleaziest Supporters since Adolf Hitler.
