Insane rage revisited

Recall that supposed insane rage at McCain rallies, and the dreadful "violent escalation of rhetoric"? Here's something I bet you won't hear about on the news: "Obama Supporter Assaults Female McCain Volunteer in New York".

"...he took the stick from the sign [that he grabbed and ripped up] and started beating me on the head with it. He broke the skin on my head, he scratched my wrist, and almost broke my glasses, and then he left."

When the attacker was arrested, he said “I don’t know why I did this. It’s just those signs, and this election, it has me so upset.”

More on taxes

Part of the ad hominem attack on Joe the Plumber is "he hasn't paid his taxes!"

Well... it's apparently true that he has at least two tax liens. Interestingly, a fellow named Martin Nesbitt has tax liens, too. Who's he, you ask? He's the treasurer for Obama's campaign.

Speaking of taxes, the Chicago NBC affiliate devoted some time to Joe the Plumber's tax liens the other day. Something they evidently never had time to mention: Barack Obama, while an Illinois state legislator, accepted income for speaker's fees. That happens to be illegal in the state of Illinois. Funny how the media decide what they have time to look into and report, huh?
