Meet David Campbell, New Hampshire state Democrat: “The ducks should have moved.”
Yeah, it’s about what you think.
[Retired USMVC officer James] Murphy said he had just tossed the ducks some crackers when he spotted Campbell’s dark sedan approaching from a side parking lot near the hotel entrance.
“All of a sudden, this 5 Series BMW comes up, it’s going about 15 miles an hour, and then when he gets to the ducks, it’s not like it even slowed down,” Murphy said.
“It just crushed all of the ducks.”
Murphy said he believes as many as six ducks were killed and a handful of others returned to the pond at the Crowne Plaza with apparent injuries.
The guy apparently also looked at first like he was just gonna keep going, too. That comment in the title is a direct quote, by the way: it’s what state legislator David Campbell (Democrat) said after he exited the vehicle. I will not speculate about whether alcohol was involved in the incident… largely because the appalled commenters at Talking Points Memo (!) are doing it for me. If you were wondering what might make Lefties get well and truly ticked off at a sitting Democrat politician, here you go: have one of said politicians run over a bunch of ducks in his BMW*.
…Of course, said commenters then spoil it by hating on New Hampshire in general, too. New Hampshire voters, please note: this is their nature.

*It’s also apparently what will encourage a news report to mention a Democrat’s politician affiliation in the first couple paragraphs.
