Virginia Obama Supporters mishear it as “Spray ‘em with Mace.”

...so they did.

No, really. Via Drudge:

Campaign workers attacked

Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after an altercation led to five Republican campaign workers being sprayed with Mace at their headquarters in Galax.

Galax Police Chief Rick Clark said officers were dispatched shortly before 1 p.m. to the Galax Republican headquarters on East Grayson Street when a caller reported someone had sprayed office workers with Mace.

Responding officers arrested Daniel Cason Meinecke, 29, and Cara Annis Hindman, 26, both of Galax.

Names are being published because I don’t like people who spray senior citizens with caustic chemicals. Call it a quirk.

For those in a hurry, let me sum up the events: Obama supporters walk in and ask a nonsensical question about available Obama signs: when corrected, begin spouting off a conspiracy theory about GOP stealing said signs; when laughed at, proceed to start shouting obscenities; when asked to moderate their language and respect propriety, not to mention private property, refused; and when pushed out, proceeded to spray caustic chemicals on not only the individuals doing the pushing, but the elderly campaign workers inside.

In other words, nothing really surprising.
