I didn’t put up anything on the Gladney Incident (allegedly, a conservative activist at Russ Carnahan’s town hall / aging event was sent to the emergency room last night because of an attack by SEIU people) last night because it was at the time single-source.

PS: Don’t expect it to get less confused and chaotic, by the way. This is real life, not the movies: you have to be very, very lucky to get footage of a spontaneous incident from beginning to end. Getting more than half of it – which is what happened here, more or less – is merely very lucky. You can help with that by making sure that everybody has a camera, of course… which is why I keep harping on people to get them.
PPS: On the other hand, there was a reporter on the scene – who apparently got arrested, too. When he gets out of jail, there may be some clarification of what went down, after all.

This may sound familiar to you, because he has done this before, from the exact same account. Here is tonight’s retweet: And here is what CNN reported back in January: The profile — with about 2,300 followers — used the name “Donald Trumpovitz,” linked | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sometimes we have to have some non-political posts otherwise we will all go crazy. This video was simply too good not to share with all of you. I am a huge fan of Family Feud, and there have been a lot of terrible contestants, but this one might very well be the worst ever. The video is long, but | Read More »
