Is that all?

Okay, I'm going to ask a stupid question. Chalk it up to my being a hysterical woman, prone to the vapors, unstable because of my hormones. But I'm going to ask anyway.

You've all heard about Ann Coulter's brush with cowardly pie-throwers in Arizona. It made the news, and lots of blogs have covered it as well.

Seems these hooligans got off pretty easy. Sure they got charged with a felony for damaging a backdrop at the venue. But all of the charges directly related to their assault are misdemeanors. Misdemeanors? Seriously?

Let me break my thoughts down on this. Two men assaulted a woman. They assaulted a tiny woman on stage during a presentation of her political beliefs. The woman was assaulted because she holds political beliefs contrary to theirs. They hate her political beliefs and acted out that hatred by assaulting her.

If they had been some Aryan Nation types throwing things at a hippy-chick, it would have been a hate crime. So where is this different?

Is it different because her cause is the unpopular one? Is it because it's acceptable to hate conservatives and their politics? If people are going to demand that hate crime be prosecuted as such, then don't they have to include acts like this as hate crimes?

When is hate not reallly hate? I really don't have to ask, because deep down, I already know the answer.

I think the only possible solution is pie control. I'll get right on the phone with Sarah Brady. No pies, no pie crimes.

Doug called them "Al Pieda". I think it fits. I'm sure you've heard of other pieings of more important people than Ann Coultier, like Bill Gates and the PM of Canada? If it happened to me I think I'd be honored to be held in such high regard. I think the biggest differece between what happened to Ann and what happened to Gates and the PM was that Al Pieda didn't even have the gonads to do it to her face. They threw the pies from an audience.

I saw on the morning Fox show Saturday, October 23rd, where one of the talking heads claimed a group at Penn State put out a $1,500.00 "contract" on him to get faced with a pie.

Assualting people who differ from your political view has been popular with the Left since Clinton. The Unbiased MSM treates it as a male hormonal thing - just some boys out having fun - and they've been allowed to let this lie permeate the public perception of it.

Guess I should have done my own blog on this - but I'll cop out and just link to your instead.

Besides, you write better than I do!

It may seem funny now, but some day some luntatic leftist is going to put ground glass or lye in the lemon meringue, and there goes someone's career of talking on TV shows. They should have introduced those fools to a pair of metal mop-bucket handles, before turning them over to the cops.

I think the pie throwers, are true American heroes.We should declare the "pieing" of Coulter, a national holiday.
Isn't she the one, who advocated using the toddlers of Liberals, as suicide bombers?
All she got was a pie in the face?
I understand just before that, she was on the receiving end of a standing ovation, from the kids at the University of Arizona. Little Eichmans, all of them.
Any college kid, who would give a standing ovation, to someome who advocated using babies as suicide bombers, needs to have their collective heads examined.
Not to mention Coulter herself who, is just plain, nuts.
Kids in college, really gave someone like this a standing ovation? Completely delusional.
The Religious Right in action. A church based entirely on politics.
The Religious Right is pro-life.
However, they are also pro-execution,and pro-war.
How does that figure?
I guess the lives of innocent Iraqi men, women, and children isn't included in that, "Thou Shalt Not Kill" Commandment.A lot of things aren't included, when it comes to the Religious Right.
They helped the Republican party campaign regarding, "family values."
Of course, if they kept their pants on, and stopped soliciting prostitutes, they would have more credibility, in my opinion.
Ah yes......................................
the Religious Right. The finest Christians, money can buy.
They should stop "pocketing" the dough,lay off "strong-arming" the politicians, cease and desist using Jesus Christ, to threaten anyone who disagrees with them, and build a church based on religion, instead of politics.
Things are coming home to roost, and they already have been caught a few times, with their "pants down."
