DiFi sees doom; Rand Paul supporter votes with his feet; Soros drops $1 million for marijuana

Millions of words have been wasted in the coverage of the midterm elections. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) was able to sum up the whole situation with a single word: "bad."

***

Atlas Shrugged. Rand Paul supporters go a bit further.
Lauren Valle, the young MoveOn activist attacked by Rand Paul supporters at Monday night's Kentucky Senate debate, suffered a concussion and sprained shoulder and arm, according to MoveOn. Video footage shows her being dragged to the ground by Paul supporters, one of whom stomped on her head.

It's but the latest sign that overheating anger is finding its way to places other than the ballot box. NPR reports that it received a bomb threat over its firing of Juan Williams because of the commentator's remarks on Fox News.

Liberal billionaire George Soros has been unusually quiet this election cycle, and now we know why: He's heavily involved in marijuana. He has given $1 million to the ballot effort in California to legalize marijuana. On the street, that sort of contribution could have purchased Soros some 300 kilograms of the good stuff.

Next: Rand Paul supporter asks for apology from woman he stomped? An apology guide

Comments

In over their head.

The Nazi Tea Party Pig Tim Proffitt Has put a fine point to the fact, woman don’t fare well around Kentucky Senate candidate
Rand Paul’s Senate race. Proffitt, who was handpicked by Rand Paul himself, has added new fuel to the fire lit by Jack Conway during his debate with Paul.

Tim Proffitt’s Admitted beating of Lauren Valle brings into question Proffitt’s close association with Paul, it brings into even more serious question, Paul’s womanizing during his college days, which included tying his victims up and forcing the young woman to perform strange rituals.

Paul’s failure to apologize to the woman that he tied up along with Proffitt’s demand that the woman he did the Nazi boot stomp on apologize for his action, forces any clear thinking person to wonder, even a Nazi Tea Party supporter; why does the Paul campaign hate woman so much?

On a personal note, I’m a Southerner, and I have never laid a hand on a woman that she didn’t want me too, a true Southern man would teach Rand Paul and Tim Proffitt a lesson in good manners, and would never reward these two cowards the Kentucky Senate seat, Just a personal thought on how woman folk are treated.
