Doin' the Randroid stomp, in Kentucky

A very nasty incident outside the Conway-Paul debate (found via Reconstitution 2.0). If this is how these troglodytes act when they think they're about to win big, I shudder to imagine the tantrums we'll see on November 3 if teabaggerdom's candidates mostly flame out after all.

Update 1: Victim Lauren Valle speaks, here; at the hospital she was told she had a concussion.

Update 2 (Wednesday): At least one video of the stomping has been removed from YouTube. Politics Plus fingers the Randroids as the culprits -- surely a mistake on their part, if true, since the cat is out of the bag and any effort to suppress the evidence will just give the story legs.

According to a comment at the Reconstitution 2.0 post, the stomper was wearing one of those "Don't tread on me" buttons.

As always, Kentucky blog Barefoot and Progressive is an excellent source on all things Rand-Paul-related.

Perhaps the good Kentuckians were inspired by their Alaskan counterpart, Joe Miller, when he had his brownshirts "arrest" a reporter, and he trumpeted his love of the East German police state....

Sounds like some of those people in Alaska spent a bit too long looking at Russia from their front porches.

You can always count on these fanatical, far-right paranoid conservative Republicans and Tea Party activists to go way over the top with brutal actions and brutal speech.They are such hypocrites! They claim to support the Constitution but then want to forcefully suppress all opposition and free speech. They wear buttons saying "don't tread on me" but then they turn around and tread, literally, on others. We have seen behavior like this before from Hitler's brownshirts. PEOPLE LIKE THIS DO NOT BELONG IN THIS COUNTRY!

They belong in a zoo, or maybe a padded room where they can't hurt anybody. Certainly not in Congress.

I'm glad that Valle is pressing charges.
